Russia’s Terror Attack on America – Keith Olbermann

Donald Trump's Lack of Concern is Mind-Boggling - Keith Olbermann

Keith Olbermann makes the case that Russia’s insidious terrorist attack on America is more dangerous than what we’ve come to fear from ISIS. Putin’s cyber-war in the presidential election was a true terror attack, intent on destroying America’s very democracy – and he plans to do it again with or without Benedict Donald.

Keith reads the following op-ed in its entirety. I’ve posted only the paragraph in which the former FBI Special Agent paints a picture to illustrate the attack in a way in which we’re more familiar.

“I was an FBI agent. Trump’s lack of concern about Russian hacking shocks me. Is the president breaking his oath to protect and defend the country from foreign attacks?”

“I was an FBI agent. Trump’s lack of concern about Russian hacking shocks me. Is the president breaking his oath to protect and defend the country from foreign attacks?”

To understand their context think of this as what we think normally of a security threat.Imagine that during the 2016 presidential election a candidate publicly invited the Islamic state to bomb the Democratic Party Headquarters, and then imagine that such a bombing, in fact took place resulting in the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history.

Now further imagine that the new president not only had no interest in learning more about who caused the attack or bringing them to justice, but in fact went out of his way to make nice with the Islamic state and offer them political and diplomatic concessions. Finally imagine that there may be evidence that members of the president’s campaign or other American citizens were actively or passively involved in facilitating such an attack .
