Speaking of Benghazi, raise your hand if you'd like to see Donald Trump testify in front of Congress for 11 straight hours on live television to explain why he did nothing after he learned that Putin was paying Afghan militants to kill American soldiers.

Re: NEW: Russia secretly paid Taliban-linked militants bounty money to kill American troops
Here’s what Trump said 2 months after finding out that 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.

Trump should have been tried for and fired for treason after Helsinki.

With a real live firing squad.

What he did before the election WAS high treason by the constitutional definition.

Since election interference is an act of war, giving aid and comfort to an enemy engaged in it IS treason.

I'm sick of him AND his dumb white supremacist sycophants.

He is a traitor and he is intentionally destroying this country for Putin and Russia

Realistically looking, you westerners came to your end. Sabotaging Russians doesn't even matter anymore. And I do understand your anger, it is justified same as your fate.

Re: 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.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77772981


U.S. troops were attacked and we did nothing about it.

Quite to the contrary of Trump’s self-proclaimed toughness on Russia, we are hearing of Trump’s maneuvering to get Russian leader Vladimir Putin back into the Group of Eight meetings. There is no more talk of sanctions against Russia—only acquiescence to Russian control of Syria, acceptance of ending Russia nuclear weapons treaties, proposed withdrawal of American troops from Europe and constant diminution of NATO. Russia is still in Ukraine, Russia is still supporting Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela, Russia is still reportedly active in seeking to disrupt U.S. elections.

Where is the Trump toughness?

Yes, we’ve had a pandemic, an economic tsunami and seen widespread protests for social justice. But Trump has found time for anti-immigration moves and an attack on the U.S. health system along with personal promotion, campaign rallies and golf.

Do you think he could spend a few minutes on protecting Americans in uniform?

We’re seeing that the need to declare Afghanistan over, when it is not, in time for the Trump re-election campaign apparently outweighs the lives of our troops.

So long as you are there, do your job, Donald Trump.
