Pot meet kettle

While I don’t want Russia – or anyone else, for that matter –
interfering in our elections, don’t think for one second that we’re innocent actors. Here’s former CIA director James Woolsey pretty much admitting that we’re actively interfering with other countries right now. But it’s always for a “good cause”, of course – as if other countries don’t see their actions as being for a good cause, as well. To this day, we as a country remain blind the blowback we create through our foreign policy choices. That’s true of the voters, but especially of our “elites”. And this is thoroughly bi-partisan. In fact, sometimes the greatest dangers come from what is bi-partisan, instead of what the two main parties argue about.
