Washington DC and The Holy Land>NYT: Putin paid bounty on US soldiers. Trump briefed MONTHS AGO
Cosmos 07:58 PM 06-26-2020
Reportedly, Trump has known since MARCH, and was provided options to penalize Putin.....WTF????

Russia reportedly paid Taliban-linked militants bounty money to kill American troops

#####

US intelligence officials assessed that Russia's military intelligence agency paid bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill NATO troops in Afghanistan — which include American forces, according to a New York Times report on Friday.

US officials discovered information about the bounties earlier this year. Some of the bounty money was collected by either Islamist militants or those associated with them, The Times reported.

In 2019, 17 US troops were killed in combat in Afghanistan, according to the Defense Department.

President Donald Trump was briefed of the intelligence assessment, but the White House has yet to respond to it, The Times' sources said. The National Security Council had developed plans to address the report as early as March — plans that included making diplomatic complaints or sanctions, according to The Times.

Quotes from Repubs who met at the White House.

Nevertheless...it doesn’t appear as though they are doubting the Intelligence Community assessments.

Now they just need to spin it and settle into an excuse and see how long it takes for evidence of Trumps malfeasance. All hands on board...again!

Republican Sen. John Cornyn told reporters Monday, “I don’t think it’s should be a surprise to anybody that the Taliban’s been trying to kill Americans and that the Russians have been encouraging that, if not providing means to make that happen.”

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Texas Rep. Mac Thornberry, the top Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, said, “After today’s briefing with senior White House officials, we remain concerned about Russian activity in Afghanistan, including reports that they have targeted U.S. forces.”

Were you critical of Trump’s call to kill Qassem Soleimani?

This is going to be Trump's version of the emails. This shit isn't going to go away and there will be constant stories and analysis about it, probably people coming forward, house hearings, etc until the election. This story is potentially rich in people to interview, angles to investigate and explore, the political stories will be nonstop, etc.

It also benefits from the ever-important trait of being able to be elevator-pitched to the American people: "Russia paid the Taliban to kill American soldiers, and Trump didn't care".

Most people aren't as stupid as you are, though.

In general, I support the elimination/neutralization of foreign nationals where the independent Intelligence Agencies have concluded these individuals have committed or are actively planning attacks/ treason against America or our strategic partners.

I believe Trump/Pompeo indicated at the time he was actively planning on attacking an embassy. Something we may never know, we just have to trust they were both telling the truth...seemed out of the blue at the time...during impeachment if I recall.

Trump reportedly passed on previous opportunities, but he did settle on that particular timing.

Why is 'free thought' ridiculed, challenged, and threatened when a person is opposed to the 'mainstream-narrative'?
What happens when 90% of the media is controlled/owned by 6 corporations?
What happens when those same corporations are operated and controlled by a political ideology?
What happens when the news is no longer free from bias?
What happens when the news is no longer reliable and independent?
What happens when the news is no longer trustworthy?
What happens when the news simply becomes an extension/arm of a political party?
Fact becomes fiction?
Fiction becomes fact?
When does news become propaganda?
Majority of people more prone to believe someone in power sitting behind a big brand ‘news’ name?
Do people tend to follow the ‘majority/mainstream viewpoint’ in fear of being isolated and/or shunned?
Why do ‘mainstream’ media heads, within different orgs, always use the same keywords and/or catch phrases?
Coordinated? By who? Outside entity providing instructions?
Do they count on the fact that people [human psyche] are more prone to believe something if heard over-and-over again by different ‘trusted’ sources?
Do ‘echo chamber’ tactics provide validation / credibility to the topic/point being discussed?
Threat to intellectual freedom?
When you control the levers of news dissemination, you control the narrative.
Control of the narrative = power
THIS REPRESENTS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Sounds like fake news to me. Putin denies it, Taliban denies it, WH denies it.

Benghazi did not bring down HiLiaRy.

Trump has been reducing troop numbers and disengaging. We're on our way out. This report is designed by the special interests that want us to stay there forever. I haven't seen this as major news though, but then again I don't read it very often. I get it through my antiwar sources.

These are folks like Bill Kristol, Bush and Romney who started the Lincoln project. There's Bolton and certain generals too. Everytime, Trump tries to pull-out from these sand wars, it's the same people who start this nonsense if they can't get Trump to walk it back. This is what Americans and any candidate who wants less of this stuff, is up against. It's not just a few people, it's an entire complex and industry.

It's ironic, that alnorth is falling for it, because he was critical of these men when Bush was in office.

Always like aged milk with this idiot.

Fact--Obama does not read his intelligence briefings nor does he get briefed in person by the CIA or DOD. Too busy I guess!

Isn't the WORLD tired of hearing President Obama say he knew nothing about anything-time to take responsibility for all of your mistakes!

You might try starting with one of these "stories" that turned out to be factually true in the end. I cant think of a single one.
