At CCI, we see the need and possibility for changing this situation. When real people in large numbers get involved, amazing things begin to happen. Join us! Let's help reduce the tensions existing today between the two Superpowers.
The impossible has happened. A leading mainstream media magazine, Newsweek, printed the article below which is full of truth uncommonly seen in American media in recent years.
Is hope on the horizon? Has fake news gone so far that someone in the middle of the disinformation world is taking a chance on getting relieved of his job … or hoping that others will follow suit?

Why Rumors Of Russian Interference In The West Are Greatly Exaggerated
Russian hackers might have interfered in the Brexit vote, according to a committee of British MPs, in a somewhat bizarre but predictable claim. According to this new hypothesis, the U.K.’s “Register to Vote” website, which was temporarily down on June 7, 2016, the final day of registration before the Brexit vote, “might have” suffered a DDOS attack. While declining to categorically assert clear evidence of a foreign (Russian) hack, Bernard Jenkin, Chair of the House of Commons’ Public Accounts Select Committee, alluded to dark forces and botnets.
This is not new. In December, a Labour Party MP, Ben Bradshaw, stated that it is “highly probable” that Vladimir Putin interfered in the Brexit referendum. In the same speech, he also, rather bafflingly claimed Russia encouraged a huge flow of migrants from Syria to destabilize the EU.
Friends, I take a non-partisan position on all issues at this point, but it appears that the “strike” on Syria is coming apart at the seams. Fortunately there were very few deaths and almost no structural damage occurred––the major loss was billions of tax dollars wasted in a spectacular aerial show, that made proponents of such madness feel that “America is Back.” It begs the question, who is pulling the strings behind both Democrats and Republicans that they would stand shoulder-to-shoulder to laud this warring insanity? I stand with Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard when she reminds that this is a totally illegal and unconstitutional act that both houses support–-that regime change MUST be stopped. I wonder how many of you out there stand with Congresswoman and Iraqi war veteran Tulsi Gabbard? Google her Youtubes, she is refreshingly honest and straight to the point.

MIT Rocket Scientist Questions White House Claims On Syria Chemical Attack
One of the world’s leading rocket scientists, national security advisor and MIT Professor Theodore Postol, who has won awards for debunking claims about missile defense systems and has been a scientific adviser to the US Chief of Naval Operations, says today in a nine-page report that a four-page report released by the Trump administration yesterday intended to blame the recent chemical attack in Syria on the Syrian government “does not provide any evidence whatsoever that the US government has concrete knowledge that the government of Syria was the source of the chemical attack”.
