Tuesday's HOT MIC
Speaking of colluding with the Russians (see my post below), the NYT -- ever "helpful" to the Russians themselves -- is now reporting that Israel was the country that provided the U.S. with intelligence about ISIS and computers. Of course, anyone with an IQ in triple digits would have figured that out for themselves. It was the best guess by far. The Israelis, with their linguistic skills and ability to blend into Arab cultures, have long been the best source on the Middle East. No doubt the Russians already knew that. In fact, I'll wager the Russians figured that out weeks ago when the news came out that someone in Raqqa had figured out a more subtle way to put a bomb in a laptop and there was endless discussion across the media about those same laptops being forbidden on planes. I already was thinking about what I was going to do on my endless flight back from Oslo this July. This whole thing had the Mossad written all over it for weeks and this sudden revelation is the very essence of "fake news."
