The New Cold War Melodrama, episode MCIII: the players, CrowdStrike, Dmitri Alperovitch & Putin The Terrible. A comment by Political Reporter

Dmitri Alperovitch has impressive credentials:

CrowdStrike has brought on board senior FBI executives, such as Shawn Henry, former executive assistant director (EAD) of the FBI’s Criminal, Cyber, Response and Services Branch, and Steve Chabinsky, former deputy assistant director of the FBI’s Cyber Division. CrowdStrike has received $156 million in funding from Warburg Pincus, Accel Partners, and Google Capital.

He is a Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council think tank…

He has a strong relationship with the American National Security State and with the propaganda arm of NATO, The Atlantic Council.  Is the reader of the Financial Times  so naive, as to think that Mr.Dmitri Alperovitch doesn’t come to this ‘investigation’ without a clear record of his sympathies and antipathies?

And clearly the America that produced and used Stuxnet, which by America’s own  definition was an Act of War, against the Iranian enrichment program, as prelude, in the American narrative , to producing  a nuclear weapon, is incapacitated , by its own exceptionalist  narrative, to exercise anything resembling self-criticism. Just one glaring  example of America’s perennial hubris.

According to Jeh Johnson, head of the Department of Homeland Security, who spoke on the Rachael Maddow show last night (12/21/16) ,the Obama administration will declassify and release the information regarding the Russian Hack, that proves the guilt of the Russians e.g. Putin, before the end of its term in office.

One can only wonder what Trump will make of this? The New Cold War comes to a crisis point, as Trump dismisses the very idea of a Russian Hack.

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
