Glenn Greenwald V BBC on Trump Memo, CIA, Russia and Wikileaks

“You know of course, don’t you, that the Iraq war was started because that agency said that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and was in alliance with Al Qaeda, something that turned out to be tragically untrue, so of course people would treat those claims skeptically.”

 

“The problem that people have is that ¬†they [CIA] caused the publication of this material by calling the source credible and then somebody went to CNN in a very coordinated way, multiple officials, to tell CNN that this was briefed to the President and the President elect, knowing that they would report it, and that the document would then surface.”
