Critics believe that this game of blaming Russia comes from the American military-industrial complex that wants to see a new Cold War.
“This is an extent to try to create a new Cold War in my view. There is a lot of money involved in this. It is like fearmongering the entire public of the US to believe that we need to have another Cold War because the Russians are the bad guys. It is being done because of the military industrial complex. But, before we do anything like that, we need to prove it, and they haven’t done that,” former intelligence official Bill Binney told RT.
Other analysts said that blaming Russia was CNN’s cheap trick to attract attention.
“If you want to pique the interest of anybody, especially American or Western media, mention Russian anything,” legal aid and media analyst Lionel told RT.
