Trump still hasn't done anything to punish Putin for paying Taliban to kill US troops.

The White House was aware in early 2019 of intelligence indicating Russia was secretly offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans. That’s a full year earlier than has been previously reported.

We have confirmed the @nytimes ⁩ scoop: A Russian military spy unit offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to attack coalition forces in Afghanistan. From @nakashimae ⁩ @missy_ryan ⁩ me and @shaneharris ⁩

Here’s what Trump said 2 months after finding out Russia was paying bounties to the Taliban to kill American troops: “We have this great friendship. And, by the way, getting along with Russia is a great thing." Basically a green light for Putin to keep executing our soldiers.

Here’s what we learned today: Trump found out Russia paid bounties to Taliban fighters to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan. He seriously considered asking them to stop. He decided to not ask them to stop. Chew on that for a sec.

Good Lord. Per this story, POTUS was briefed and NSC discussed in March that per US Intel, a notoriously violent Russian GRU unit offered bounties to Taliban-linked terrorists to kill coalition forces, including Americans, in Afghanistan.

The Taliban has never been hit harder than it is being hit right now. Killing 12 people, including one great American soldier, was not a good idea. There are much better ways to set up a negotiation. The Taliban knows they made a big mistake, and they have no idea how to recover!

You brought the Taliban to the United States the week of September 11?
