Bounty on American Soldiers

Recommended Posts

Putin has apparently started a bounty that pays out to anyone that kills American soldiers in Afghanistan. And according to reports, he's paid on it and Trump knew this in March and did NOTHING about it. NOT.ONE.THING

Russia reportedly paid Taliban-linked militants bounty money to kill American troops

 

US intelligence officials assessed that Russia's military intelligence agency paid bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill NATO troops in Afghanistan — which include American forces, according to a New York Times report on Friday.

US officials discovered information about the bounties earlier this year. Some of the bounty money was collected by either Islamist militants or those associated with them, The Times reported.

In 2019, 17 US troops were killed in combat in Afghanistan, according to the Defense Department.

Interrogations of Afghan militants and criminals yielded the information indicating that Taliban-linked militants were offered bounties from Russian forces, The Times reported. The intelligence officials believe the bounties involve Unit 29155, a branch of Russia's GRU military intelligence agency.

 

Unit 29155, which is believed to be made up of former Russian special-forces troops, has been blamed for a series of assassination attempts throughout Europe, including the poisoning of Russian defector Sergei Skripal in 2018.

One theory floated by some of the officials is that Moscow may have been retaliating after an embarrassing defeat during a battle in Syria in 2018. Between 200 and 300 mercenaries from a Russia-linked security firm were killed during a four-hour battle at a military base that housed US-led coalition forces.

It is unclear whether the Kremlin sanctioned the bounties. Russian officials said they were not aware of the allegations, according to The Times.

President Donald Trump was briefed of the intelligence assessment, but the White House has yet to respond to it, The Times' sources said. The National Security Council had developed plans to address the report as early as March — plans that included making diplomatic complaints or sanctions, according to The Times.

What's the most unforgivable is that you fucking Trump lovers will invent reasons to dispute this

Putin must have some serious blackmail like him pissing on an escort for him to ignore Russians paying to have American soldiers killed and lobby for Russia to be put back in the G8.

This will lower Trumps approval ratings even more and Biden's lead on Trump will only increase. Not only is Trump a draft dodger but he has no respect for the people in the Military that put their lives on the line to protect America.

Trump sold out America because of dictator envy. He would rather be on good terms with Putin than do his job as President.

President Trump’s inner circle

While President Trump is unlikely to be a full-blown recruited and controlled source, there may be those around him who are.

As noted above, the intelligence recruitment cycle involves the collection of targeting information about a potential source’s personality, psychology and vulnerabilities. Intelligence professionals engage in a step-by-step process to determine if a target will step over the line, display a willingness to share protected information, and become complicit in a conspiratorial relationship. A target who passes those tests then needs to prove their access to protected information, prove their loyalty, and meticulously follow directions designed to keep the relationship secret. As we preach in CIA, an agent handler needs to be correct 100% of the time, while a counterintelligence service only needs to get lucky once. A single slip-up could endanger a source’s life.

From what little public information is available, it appears the Russians were targeting a number of people in the Trump campaign. They may not have succeeded in bringing new agents on-board but it certainly wasn’t for lack of trying. At the same time, a number of members and associates of the Trump campaign displayed a clear willingness to engage in shady behavior and cover-ups. From what we’ve seen publicly (and remember, this activity was carried out by a secret intelligence service who knows how to hide the details of their work) Russia made multiple attempts to penetrate the U.S. presidential campaign. The approaches were not rebuffed. Members of the Trump campaign showed a willingness to collude and conspire. They welcomed receipt of materials stolen from Americans by a hostile intelligence agency and apparently never reported the fact to the FBI. Then, all of those contacted concealed the contacts and repeatedly lied about them. After all that, they added insult to injury by repeatedly attacking the credibility of those professionals empowered by the American people to investigate foreign intelligence attacks and hold wrongdoers accountable.

The chance that any of the people in the campaign were recruited as Russian agents is slim. Indeed, most attempts to suborn a contact go nowhere. However, willingly engaging with Russians with ties to the Kremlin is like playing a game of Russian roulette (sorry). Naïve Americans were putting themselves in the line of fire. It is still not clear why they saw a need to meet with Russians for any purpose and indeed, nobody associated with the campaign has even tried to explain the intent. In any event, playing footsie with a hostile intelligence service may not be illegal but it is unpatriotic, unwise and dangerous.

In my opinion, if anyone associated with the campaign may have been a witting source for the Kremlin it was either Carter Page or Paul Manafort. Page’s history with the FBI and Russian services is fairly well known. If the Russians didn’t pitch him to become an agent it was because they determined he wasn’t worth the effort.

Manafort is a different story. Manafort’s out-of-control ego and greed were apparent to everyone he met. He spent years conspiring with and enabling war criminals, undermining U.S. policy and looking to make a buck anywhere he could. He enriched himself while engaged with Russians and Russian-linked Ukrainians. Anyone who has spent years making money on the fringes of Russian politics has rubbed up against the cesspool of Russian intelligence, criminality and corruption. He appears to have been comfortable in that world. At the very least, the Russian services certainly had years of access to Manafort. His position as the Trump campaign chair would have also made him a top target of interest for Russian intelligence (and the services of China, Iran etc.). Failure to proposition him would have been an act of professional negligence by the Russian services. It was just too easy.

Additionally, recent information from the Mueller team suggests Manafort was trying to use his position on the Trump campaign to pay back debts to Russian oligarchs. He reportedly met with former Russian intelligence officer Konstantin Kilimnik, who had continuing ties to Russian intelligence, to share campaign polling data (why?) and discuss a Ukraine peace plan that would have been of great interest to the Kremlin. Further, the one campaign official who participated in the infamous June 9, 2016 meeting who certainly had enough experience to understand how the Kremlin would seek to exploit that meeting was Manafort. The fact that he accepted the meeting and failed to report Russian efforts to fence stolen data suggest that he was comfortable engaging in illicit, subversive, and potentially criminal behavior. He surely knew how the Russians operate, what was on offer and the stakes involved. He displayed top-level access and a clear willingness to conspire. Anyone in government who behaved as he did would be investigated and fired. He failed to put his country first.

So, while I do not believe that Trump to be a controlled agent of the Russian government in the CIA sense of the term, he is clearly a useful tool to promote their interests. The Russians want to weaken the U.S. and sow chaos. Trump was the chaos candidate. Even if his assistance has been unintentional, his lies and cover-up provide the Kremlin leverage it could use at a later date. Likewise, many of the meetings between Trump associates and Russians appear to have been part of the early courtship phase of classic espionage gamesmanship. We don’t yet have enough evidence to conclude that any of these relationships were consummated.

What to expect from Mueller and any ongoing counterintelligence probe

While there is hope in many circles that the Mueller investigation will provide a clear answer to the question of whether the Trump campaign was complicit in colluding with the Kremlin, it is unlikely to be so unambiguous. Russia’s intent, ability and relentlessness are clear. Likewise, the willingness of members of the Trump campaign to conspire is equally clear. However, as I outlined in “Just Security,” many counterintelligence cases fail to go to trial. We rarely catch spies by detection or good investigative work but instead by learning of them by our own moles/spies inside of our adversaries. Such sources cannot testify in court or elsewhere in public. For this reason, usually spies need to be caught red-handed since it is often impossible to satisfy the high legal definition of evidence and “smoking gun” proof may be locked away in the secret files of the Kremlin. In the world of counterintelligence there is a big difference between knowing something and being able to prove it in a court of law.

Given these variables, I consider it unlikely that any legal judgment or other formal, public determination will prove Trump or his associates sold out their country to the Russian intelligence services. Their clear willingness to do so, however, demands at least a political reckoning, as provided for in the U.S. Constitution.

Trump was projecting when he said Obama committed treason. Trump committed treason and then doubled down by being an ally to Russia to try and get them in the G8.
