I never made such claims and I never will. Any country that after fair scrutiny is found to act out opens itself to criticism and condemnation.

My initial response is a knee-jerk reaction to kleinbl00's comparison of two different scenarios and while I do think we're doing better than Russia, I do not think we should be so easily dismissive of our own wrong doings.

Of course. I don't think anyone is being dismissive of it at all really not even klein. I think klein's response is along the lines of what I was saying. That sure what trump said is true, but in this scenario there is a distinction between intention large enough that, "America did it too" isn't a good response.
