Russia Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to Kill U.S. Troops

 

June 26, 2020

 

“American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there,” the New York Times reports.

 

“Islamist militants, or armed criminal elements closely associated with them, are believed to have collected some bounty money… Twenty Americans were killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2019, but it was not clear which killings were under suspicion.”

 

“The intelligence finding was briefed to President Trump… Officials developed a menu of potential options — starting with making a diplomatic complaint to Moscow and a demand that it stop, along with an escalating series of sanctions and other possible responses, but the White House has yet to authorize any step.”

It’s likely 10x worse and we’ll find out 

Some Russians probably just guaranteed his loans at Deutsche bank, although sleezy videos wouldn't be a surprise.

Is it me or is this not being heavily talked about? I figured this would be on every channel, every web site. Every Tweet. 

 

Instead it's just like, "yeah, ho hum. More fucked up Trump shit."

 

If this were Obama the Right would "Benghazi" this shit for years and years and use it as a fucking battle cry for the next decade plus. 

This would be Benghazi on meth while injecting steroids.

I assumed it would have taken over the news for several days.  A foreign country paid to kill US troops - how is this not the dominate story in the news now.

Shit, them putting the bounty out is enough, but the fact Trump knew and still pushed for them to be readmitted into the G7? That equals this

Any other time/president, this would be the single biggest scandal in US history.

Trump is killing more Americans via COVID-19 so that is the bigger story.
