Russia Offered Bounties to Taliban For American Soldiers
U.S. President Donald Trump Claims Ignorance

First Trump goes on TV and informs the US that Biden will be our new President and now this? For a guy who claims to know everything about everything I guess Trump sat this one out. Reportedly, the Russian Military offered hard cold cash to the Taliban for murdering US Soldiers in Afghanistan.
According to The New York Post United States officials learned months ago of a Russian intelligence unit secretly offering bounties to the Taliban for killing US and other coalition forces in Afghanistan, as peace talks to end the war continue. This is the part that seals the deal – American spies and commandos reportedly told their superiors about the plot as early as January, after discovering a Taliban outpost rife with none other than US hard, cold cash.
Trump is denying any knowledge however according to the New York Post which blackens the eye of Trump, American intelligence officials in fact told Trump about the findings in March and offered a number of options for reprimanding Russia, including escalating sanctions or issuing diplomatic complaints. Naturally Donald Trump did not choose to retaliate at all, instead ignoring what intelligence suggested was an unprecedented Russian attack on US troops and a significant escalation of the country’s support for the Taliban.
I wonder if the Putin/Trump bromance ever really did cool off? Rather than do anything trump got down on his knees and gave Russia quite literally, a blow job.
20 Americans were killed in Afghanistan in 2019 and 4 others were killed in early 2020, though the Taliban has not attacked any American bases since February. It’s unclear which killings may be connected to the Russian plot or whether any bounties were actually paid.
Trump’s illusion of a winning streak seems to be fading.
