ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The latest WikiLeaks dump tells us that the CIA, everyone’s favorite assemblage of spooks, can commandeer our televisions and smartphones in order to spy on us — and if discovered make the culprit appear to be not the CIA but an obese 14-year-old transgender individual in Eastern Europe (“WikiLeaks outs CIA for turning smartphones, TVs into spy cameras and audio bugs,” Web, March 7).

Now the at-first-outrageous Trump claim that his predecessor tapped Trump Tower communications doesn’t seem so outrageous after all, does it? And it gives Barack Obama plausible deniability. He simply didn’t know what those rogue spooks at the CIA were doing, right? And the transgender foil can use any bathroom within range. Why, it’s a win-win for the good guys/gals.
