Stephen Kinzer, senior fellow in international and public affairs, wrote an op-ed about U.S. intervention in foreign elections amid ongoing news of the alleged Russian backed hacking in the recent election. "Over a period of more than a century, American leaders have used a variety of tools to influence voters in other countries. We have chosen candidates, advised them, financed their parties, designed their campaigns, bribed media outlets to support them, and intimidated or smeared their rivals."
