Wow indeed! Bamford's piece on Butina echoes top Kremlin talking points—anti-Russia hysteria (Russophobia), mere private idealistic Russian citizen (Putin called GRU hackers private patriots). He also mirrors Trump/GOP anti-media & anti-govt line. Mindsets are stubborn things😕
Bamford's Butina piece has more Kremlin propaganda than RT! She's "naive, idealistic." Torshin's a "passionate pro-gun enthusiast." FBI has no case, coerced her guilty plea; following govt marching orders, like Iraq or Joe McCarthyism. Pathetic. newrepublic.com/article/153036… #Maddow
Bamford's piece on Butina exemplifies an inability to see Russia as a bad actor—despite reams of evidence around the globe—for Americans stuck in self-flagellation abt our past. Russia pulls on that heartstring aLOT—to get away w/ too much, as I've written stopfake.org/en/russophobia…
Bamford builds a straw man, making a flimsy emotional case that poor jailed naive grad student Maria Butina was framed as a spy by FBI. Read @KirkseniyaSF's THREAD. Butina contacts w/ Kremlin bankers, oligarchs & thugs in Crimea suggest more than preparation for grad school.👇
