Via John Sexton at Hot Air — the CIA concocted another false information operation and directed it at the taxpayers paying for its bullshit.
The CIA leaked this false story to its favorite vessels of disinformation in the propaganda press, running a hit on Trump by claiming Russia was paying bounties for US soldiers’ heads in Afghanistan, and of course the Puppet of Putin wasn’t doing anything about it.
There was a reason Trump didn’t do anything about it (and later, neither did Biden): It was always false.
Or it was one step above false– unproven, with little to demonstrate it was anything other than yet another CIA hoax.
From the Daily Beast:

On Thursday, the Biden administration announced that U.S. intelligence only had “low to moderate” confidence in the story after all. Translated from the jargon of spyworld, that means the intelligence agencies have found the story is, at best, unproven—and possibly untrue.

“The United States intelligence community assesses with low to moderate confidence that Russian intelligence officers sought to encourage Taliban attacks U.S. and coalition personnel in Afghanistan in 2019 and perhaps earlier,” a senior administration official said…
According to the officials on Thursday’s call, the reporting about the alleged “bounties” came from “detainee reporting” – raising the specter that someone told their U.S.-aligned Afghan jailers what they thought was necessary to get out of a cage.

Say, waitaminute, isn’t that the exact sort of testimony the left has claimed for 20 years was absolutely worthless? (And it is worthless — it’s just that the left confuses that kind of tall tale with a terrorist admitting things that can be independently verified — like, for example, if he tells you he keeps his bomb-making kit in an non-functional car at a local junkyard, and then you look in that car and find a bomb-making kit — obviously, he didn’t just make that up.)
But here’s the CIA running yet another political information op against the enemy population — which happens to be the US citizenry.
