I’m not kidding. I know people sometimes say these things off-handedly, but the CIA has been turned inside-out into an agency whose goal is not to defend America but to subvert and defeat it.
It must be disbanded.
Enough of these government-paid insurrectionists.
The commander of U.S. Central Command, Gen. Frank McKenzie, said Monday that after two months of looking into a widely reported claim that Russia paid bounties to the Taliban for the killing of U.S. troops still has not been verified…
There’s a bit more in the story including the fact that it’s apparently the CIA that is largely convinced this happened or is happening. Gen. McKenzie, without naming anyone in particular, said the people involved in the ongoing argument over this are “very emotional” but that he can’t afford to be. That makes sense because obviously if this were confirmed then the U.S. would have no choice but to urge the president to act.
But “All 17 Intelligence agencies” agree with the CIA’s assessment, right?
The hesitation over this story isn’t solely a matter of the military not being convinced of what the intel agencies are saying. Previous reporting from the Wall Street Journal stated that the NSA had “strongly dissented” from other intel agencies about the bounties claim. So even within the intel community there has been some doubt about this.
The fact that the CIA leaked this — to Adam Schiff, no less! — is proof that they must be disbanded.
In previous years, under previous presidents, the intelligence community was very careful about leaking claims like this.
Claims like this put the president in an impossible bind: either he can argue on behalf of Russia’s innocence, or he can launch a nuclear attack on Russia.
There’s really no middle path here. If Russia is killing US troops, we go to war.
So usually these things were handled secretly. Russia would be punished, but not in some high-profile way that would stir the public into demanding a nuclear retaliation on Russia.
But that’s not how the Obama-ized CIA rolls, now. Now, each and every unverified suspicion they have, each bit of Hot Goss collected from Igor “Iggy” Danchenko’s alcoholic friends at his local DC rum mill, is fit for immediate leaking to Adam Fucking Schiff and the whole of the GPSFusion-paid Black Ops Press.
Why, it’s almost as if elements of the Deep State, with a leadership cadre infiltrated into the highest positions of the CIA, are attempting a “color revolution” coup d’etat against their own (supposed) country.
This rolling campaign of anti-police street violence is killing Biden’s bid for the presidency — just look at private polling in crucial swing states such as Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, where law and order has become a decisive issue.
So why don’t Democratic leaders do more to condemn the violence and call for calm?
To understand their inaction, you need to step back and see street violence as one element of a coordinated “playbook” to dislodge President Trump, regardless of the outcome of the election.
The left doesn’t care about verification, evidence or facts. They just want a premise to hate.
Along with two other alphabet agencies, one of which allegedly investigates criminal activity and the other which allegedly applies equal justice under the law.
The ny slimes like the atlantic are media liars defended and supported by greg. the left wing media in this country are the enemy of the people and are not to be trusted. Are you listening greg?
@July 4th American: To the liberal propaganda media, a story is not a story unless it attacks Trump. That is the only worthy part and facts, evidence or truth is not at all important.
Exactly, the recent ME peace deal was not a newsworthy story. 39 years since the last ME peace related deal.
This, Woodward, Vet-Comments….blah blah blah.
Can someone tell the Marxist Democrats that we decide things by way of fair elections, not disinformation-induced revolt?
@July 4th American:
Do you remember the Camp David Accords? Do you remember how the media fell all over itself praising the actions of the then Democrat president, Jimmy Carter? There wasn’t a publication or TV station that wasn’t heralding Carter’s brilliance in bringing those negotiations to Camp David.
But what was the reaction to Trump’s ability to negotiate a peace deal between major actors in the Middle East? Ho hum. And for those that even bothered to report on it, the major point in their story was “NO MASKS” on the major players and the people sitting in the front row.
The national media is now truly an arm of the DNC. Even Fox is in the tank and tries to shut down anything that Trump does that is historically notable and serves to benefit not only our nation, the the entire world.
Yes I do. It was an important breakthrough and it portended there might be advances in more ME peace. Then the moslem brotherhood assassinated Sadat and in 1979 the Iranian revolution and hostage crisis that put the brakes on any further peace efforts.
What President Trump did is significant because the approach was non conventional. And IMHO embarrassed those who had come before him because all had failed trying the same old failed approach between Israel and the dirtbag palestinians.
@July 4th American:
I remember the left wing media saying in 2016 that if Trump was elected, there would be terrible unrest in the ME. But here is what those rain men, and rain women, didn’t understand. Obama’s deal with Iran made matters worse in the ME with the tons of American dollars he provided to Iran. Those smaller nations like Bahrain and the UAE are fearful of what Iran can bring down on their heads. Better to cut a deal with Israel. And the U.S. There is safety in numbers when you’re up against the crazed Mullahs.
President Trump is in effect creating a NATO like group in the ME. Once more and more countries join it will leave the Iranians and others of similar ilk as outcasts and militarily much weaker. Actually it is a brilliant strategy.
@July 4th American:
Not only that, it neutered the Palestinians. The UAE, Bahrain, et al, don’t want the Palestinian refugees in their nations and they know that Iran supports the Palestinian Authority. Arafat knew that even though we poured more money into the Palestinian Authority than you can imagine. If you’re sitting in the neighborhood with a radical next door, you want to make sure that when the shite hits the fan, the other neighbors are going to have your 6.
Trump to the UAE and Bahrain: When the Iranian/Palestinian shite hits the fan, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters?
@July 4th American:
Wow, thanks. That was an excellent read. No wonder the left wing media wants to avoid any and all discussion regarding the Abraham Accords.
@retire05: Now, how far out on a limb would one have to go to predict ME unrest? That’s a gimme; they simply intended to blame it on Trump. What no one could foresee was that Trump would accomplish what all the other Harvard and Princeton geniuses couldn’t; get Arabs to see common sense. Again, give credit where credit is due; possibly the motivation to talk peace was sparked by the idiots Obama and Kerry showing favor to the largest promoter of international terrorism, Iran. Obama empowered and financed Iran causing other nations to see the REAL risk to their survival… and it wasn’t Israel, who has never made war on anyone without being attacked first.
