The Kissinger Backchannel to Moscow


Consortium News has the article The Kissinger Backchannel to Moscow.

This history of Kissinger’s Soviet backchannel in 1968 reveals Brennan’s breathless alarm about Russian “suborning” Flynn or using the backchannel to manipulate Kushner as unworthy of a serious intelligence professional.

Demonstrating the intensity of the anti-Trump attitudes among many Obama officials – both those who have left the government and those who remain as holdovers – someone with access to the secret report was so determined to expose the Kushner backchannel as to reveal to the Russians what must be one of the most sensitive U.S. intelligence secrets of all – the U.S. capability to intercept Russia’s diplomatic messages.

I do not publish news of this kind to prove that Trump is good, or wise, or honest. I do not believe he is any of those things. I do it, to make sure people know how duplicitous the anti-Trump forces are being. Just because one side seems to be lying to us, we shouldn’t fall into the automatic trap of believing the other side is telling us the truth.

When you know both sides are lying to you, that should put you on guard to wondering what each side has against the other that does not benefit any of us.
