    Former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright stated that the Russian government was behind the sensitive leaks from the Democratic National Committee email accounts, published by WikiLeaks, claiming the website was friends with Russian officials.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright in an article published Thursday proposed taking on what she said was "anti-democratic trolling" by Russian media, such as the RT broadcaster and Sputnik news agency, the same way Washington dealt with Islamist propaganda.

    "We already have systems in place to monitor Islamic State propaganda on the Internet, and we should do the same for authoritarian propaganda," she wrote in an article for the USA Today.

    Albright reiterated accusations by US homeland security and intelligence that the Russian government was behind the sensitive leaks from the Democratic National Committee email accounts, published by WikiLeaks, claiming the website was friends with Russian officials.

    News outlets like the RT channel and Sputnik agency are spreading misinformation and lies, she said, and the United States must tell the true story, specifically to audiences in Central and Eastern Europe.

    "The U.S. government should work with technology companies to develop better policies to deal with anti-democratic trolling, as they have done with cyberbullying, hate speech and violent extremism," the top US diplomat under Bill Clinton wrote.

    The Clinton campaign has blamed Russia for directing leaks of emails from the hacked account of US Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s election campaign chairman, John Podesta, in a bid to interfere with the US election process. Russia has denied the allegations.

      RT is indeed propaganda and it deletes accounts all the time. The woman is bad, so she and RT are 2 evils.

      anne00marie, She also said, 'Get out, filthy Serbs!' She has a habit of dropping a few 'Unintended Clintons.'

      JOHN CHUCKMAN, Albright certainly seems to attach very little importance to the lives of other people.

      Mitach2002, Anyone who does not support Washington's wars is likely to be viewed with suspicion by the government. That is pretty scary.

      Someone might mistakenly liken her appearance to a ghoul or zombie.

      She has a voice with me, BUT ONLY AFTER she returns the stolen treasures her father took from the storehouse of Spain during the revolution of the late 1930's. "Don't worry, our Spanish brothers, we Jews will return to you all we will be safeguarding during this terrible time in your country." Did I say that it was the Jewish Prime Minister of France, Leon Blum, that was supplying guns to both sides of the Spanish Revolution? She even admitted that it was stolen art. And where do you think the ICC was in all of this when she was faced with an international warrant? And who did she run to tell her story to? Yeah, you got it: RT.

      This is what a murdering, neocon, psychopathic asshat looks like! She shouldn't be allowed in public.

      She has no clue what she is talking about. Dementia has kicked in. A typical war mongering politician. Throw out the accusations with no proof of what is being said. The fact that she is mentioning a lie is only to sway public opinion. That's all and these minions of the elite never have to back up their accusations with concrete evidence. This is why ther is alternative media because the public know of the main stream corruption.
    • Adrienne Adonis
      Also it does not matter who was behind the WIKILEAKS ......... The fact remains that no one is focusing on the corruption that Hillary was involved in with other top ranking officials in her pay to play treasonous email scam from her personal server. It reflected the massive fraud involved on high levels and the corruption and collusion with the DNC and Main Street media against Bernie Sanders and Trump. An illegal scheme to fabricate lies upon lies. So again the typical approach is to blame the hacker and let's not focus on the real corruption.
