June 30, 2020 "Information
Clearing House" - There were allegations
about emails that someone exfiltrated from the DNC and
provided to Wikileaks. Russia must have done
it. The FBI and other intelligence services were all
over it. In the end no evidence was provided to support
There were allegations that Trump did not really win
the elections. Russia must have done it. The various
U.S. intelligence service, together with their British
friends, provided all kinds of sinister leaks about the
alleged case. In the end no evidence was provided to
support the claims.
A British double agent, Sergej Skirpal, was allegedly
injured in a Russian attack on him. The intelligence
services told all kind of contradicting nonsense about
the case. In the end no evidence was provided to support
All three cases had two points in common. The were
based on sources near to the U.S. and British
intelligence community. They were designed to increase
hostility against Russia. The last point was then used
to sabotage Donald Trump's original plans for better
relations with Russia.
Now the intelligence services make another claim that
fits right into the above scheme.
Reporters from the New York Times and
the Washington Post were called up by
unnamed 'officials' and told to write that Russia
pays some Afghans to kill U.S. soldiers in
Afghanistan. There is zero evidence that the claim
is true. The Taliban spokesman denies it. The
numbers of U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan is
minimal. The alleged sources of the claims are
criminals the U.S. has taken as prisoners in
All that nonsense is again used to press against
Trump's wish for better relations with Russia. Imagine -
Trump was told about these nonsensical claims and he did
nothing about it!
The same intelligence services and 'officials'
previously paid bounties to bring innocent prisoners to
Guantanamo Bay, tortured them until they made false
confessions and lied about it. The same intelligence
services and 'officials' lied about WMD in Iraq. The
same 'intelligence officials' paid and pay Jihadis
disguised as 'Syrian rebels' to kill Russian and Syrian
troops which defend their countries.
The journalistic standards at the New York Times
and Washington Post must be below zero to
publish such nonsense without requesting real evidence.
The press release like stories below from
anti-Trump/anti-Russian sources have nothing to do with
reporting' but are pure stenography.
The New York Times:
Russia Secretly Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to
Kill U.S. Troops, Intelligence Says
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, according to
officials briefed on the matter.
The officials familiar with the intelligence did not
explain the White House delay in deciding how to
respond to the intelligence about Russia.
While some of his closest advisers, like
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have counseled more
hawkish policies toward Russia, Mr. Trump has
adopted an accommodating stance toward Moscow.
The intelligence assessment is said to be
based at least in part on interrogations of captured
Afghan militants and criminals.
The Washington Post:
Russian operation targeted coalition troops in
Afghanistan, intelligence finds
A Russian military spy unit offered bounties to
Taliban-linked militants to attack coalition forces
in Afghanistan, including U.S. and British troops,
in a striking escalation of the Kremlin’s hostility
toward the United States, American intelligence has
The Russian operation, first reported by the New
York Times, has generated an intense debate within
the Trump administration about how best to respond
to a troubling new tactic by a nation that most U.S.
officials regard as a potential foe but that
President Trump has frequently embraced as a friend,
said the officials, who spoke on the condition of
anonymity to discuss a sensitive intelligence
The unit that officials identified as responsible
for allegedly offering the bounties has also been
linked to the poisoning and attempted murder of
former Russian military spy Sergei Skripal in
Britain in 2018.
