A fairly big story here on ATS and elsewhere IIRC and now we find out it wasn't exactly true. Both sides do indeed do this however the Democrats own
the MSM now. Regardless I remember when the majority of ATS had a default mode of distrust of the government and the MSM. On top of the other
revelations perhaps we can go back to that initial distrust no matter the source, as it's likely disinformation at the worst and extremely biased at
It was a blockbuster story about Russia’s return to the imperial “Great Game” in Afghanistan. The Kremlin had spread money around the longtime
central Asian battlefield for militants to kill remaining U.S. forces. It sparked a massive outcry from Democrats and their #resistance amplifiers
about the treasonous Russian puppet in the White House whose admiration for Vladimir Putin had endangered American troops.
But on Thursday, the Biden administration announced that U.S. intelligence only had “low to moderate” confidence in the story after all.
Translated from the jargon of spyworld, that means the intelligence agencies have found the story is, at best, unproven—and possibly untrue.
“The United States intelligence community assesses with low to moderate confidence that Russian intelligence officers sought to encourage Taliban
attacks U.S. and coalition personnel in Afghanistan in 2019 and perhaps earlier,” a senior administration official said.
