113 Condings Let me fix that title Ex-CIA director: US meddles in foreign elections 'for good money'
264 throughpasser To stop people meddling in your government you need strict ( and enforced) laws against lobbying and corruption. It should just be flat out illegal for an individual or an organisation to make payments of more than a few dollars to anybody running for election. And there should be a (low) cap on the total amount of campaign funds any candidate is allowed to raise. Is anybody proposing such restrictions on lobbying? Nobody in power. However there are laws against taking money from foreign powers, and if Trump has done this then they can charge him for it. To defend against internet propaganda, on the other hand, your best defence is certainly not censorship, or government/corporate control of content. It is an intelligent public. (Nobody in power wants one of those either of course. While they would be quite keen on control of internet content.)
583 Sax103I "for a good cause" i'm sure the Russians are saying the same thing.
96 YouPoorBastards I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents. -Smedly Butler
52 barackobamaman Well you heard him folks, nothing to worry about. Your elections are safe and sound when the USA Oversees them!
167 jimflaigle Do you want to live in a world where bananas cost 20% more? DO YOU?!?!
66 twat69 Good causes like Augusto Pinochet and Mohammad Reza Pahlavi
328 SernyRanders Oh c'mon, the US always meddled for their own interest and it always comes back to bite them in the ass. You can even backtrack the 2016 Russian meddling to the US interference in the 1996 Russian election. US meddles in .ru election 1996 and backs Yeltsin+oligarchs => Yeltsin appoints Putin to his presidential staff and the rest is history.
20 Real_Muthsera Oh, you mean like Ghana? Because they wanted to secure more of the revenues from their renewable resources? >“Howard Bane, who was the CIA station chief in Accra, engineered the overthrow of Kwame Nkrumah. Inside the CIA it was quite clear. Howard Bane got a double promotion, and was awarded the Intelligence Star for the overthrow of Kwame. The magic of it was that Howard Bane had enough imagination and drive to run this operation without ever documenting what he was doing and there wasn't one shred of paper that was generated that would name the CIA hierarchy as being responsible.“

57 lockon345 Well that's good news. Glad to know subverting democracies the world over has all been for a good cause... I'm sure South America, Africa, South East Asia and Eastern Europe are all going to understand and have a big laugh soon enough.
64 boxlord99 Oh boy I wonder which poor third world country America will "liberate" next!

34 JiveTrain The amount of doublethink from some people is reaching 1984 levels. When america does it, it's "for a good cause". Of course.. And when other countries meddles, it's for what, an evil cause? They have either lulled themselves into believing some cartoonish black and white world, or are lying through their teeth.
16 szita2000 The US kindly needs to fuck off and deal with problems in murica.
120 jtdusk Yes, that good cause is to install a puppet regime that will give us their countrys natural resources, so we don't have to make up an excuse to invade them and just take all of their stuff.
43 rddman > 'for a good cause' Historically, the good cause is overthrowing left-wing democracies in favor of right-wing dictatorship. Because in the CIA's mind, left = communism and anything is better than communism.
