NEW: Russia secretly paid Taliban-linked militants bounty money to kill American troops
US intelligence officials assessed that Russia's military intelligence agency offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill NATO troops in Afghanistan.

Interrogations of Afghan militants and criminals yielded the information indicating that Taliban-linked militants were offered bounties from Russian agents, specifically 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.

President Donald Trump was briefed of the intelligence assessment, but the White House has yet to respond to it.

...

"We" do keep score.

It is institutional.(perhaps not written down-but

remembered.)

We can co-operate with the Russians....

when it is both our interests.


There will come a time when we could help them

but don't.

They will know why.

Forget the whataboutisms.

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.

Most of Talibans don't need bounties, US only have to bomb weddings or "pacify" villages to motivate them.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33385990


"Ahmed Rashid states that the US indirectly supported the Taliban through its ally in Pakistan between 1994 and 1996 because Washington viewed the Taliban as anti-Iranian, anti-Shia and pro-Western. For example, it made no comment when the Taliban captured Herat in 1995, and expelled thousands of girls from schools.
At this early stage, the then Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs, Robin Raphel, strongly supported efforts to engage with the Taliban. She also supported a Unocal-led, Taliban-supported pipeline project on trips to Afghanistan and Pakistan in April and August 1996. She was one of the first senior American officials to meet personally with Taliban, including its leader, Mohammed Omar. She called on the international community to "engage the Taliban." Raphel was instrumental in coordinating the State Department's establishment of diplomatic relations with the Taliban shortly after its takeover of Kabul. She welcomed their taking of Kabul in September 1996 as a "positive step". Her consistent support for the Taliban from its earliest days earned her the sobriquet "Lady Taliban" and "Godmother to the Taliban" in some circles."
