It ‘says’ a lot yet it ridiculously fails to say enough. A lot of talk following the report has focused on what it says, leaving the people obscure to what it doesn’t say. Interestingly enough, even a cursory look at the joint report of the CIA, FBI and NSA released on January 7, 2017, would suffice to show how deeply flawed and least supported by evidences that document is. While it claims to “assess” Russian involvement in the US presidential elections, it goes onto pass judgement on Russia and finds it, quite conveniently, guilty. A deeper look, however, would show that this report, far from a piece of investigation, serves the purpose of propaganda aimed at defaming Russia. A part of the US “disinformation campaign” as this report is, it equally passes, ironically though, a judgement on how weak, fragile, hollow, vulnerable and easily “hackable” the entire US election process is. Hence, the “death of democracy” in the US—a country that although claims to be the world’s best democracy yet is finding it difficult to come to terms with Trump’s democratic election victory, which is a direct result of Obama’s extremely poor performance as the US president.
