More Bounties Claim

Closing Thought–25Aug20

Recently news has been circulating around the internet about Russia paying bounties on US soldiers.

I have written on this report……

Now the propaganda machine has picked a new foe for the bounty thing….this time it is Iran…..

US intelligence agencies assessed that Iran offered bounties to Taliban fighters for targeting American and coalition troops in Afghanistan, identifying payments linked to at least six attacks carried out by the militant group just last year alone, including a suicide bombing at a US air base in December, CNN has learned.

“Bounties” were paid by a foreign government, identified to CNN as Iran, to the Haqqani network — a terrorist group that is led by the second highest ranking leader of the Taliban — for their attack on Bagram Air Base on December 11, which killed two civilians and injured more than 70 others, including four US personnel, according to a Pentagon briefing document reviewed by CNN.
The name of the foreign government that made these payments remains classified but two sources familiar with the intelligence confirmed to CNN that it refers to Iran.
This report co,mes at a time when some sort of diversion is needed from the travesty the Trump is creating around the election.
You mean like the ones the US offers for enemies?  Of wait we call those “reward”….if it is “dead or alive” then it is a bounty.
Bounties?  You mean like the ones that the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese offered for certain US troops during the war?
My point is that this is NOTHING new….but it does help fuel the rhetoric on Russia/Iran as our enemies.
