The United States military was sent into Afghanistan two decades ago on the basis of a lie. The warmonger neoconservative George W. Bush regime lied to the American people, to US soldiers, and to the world that Osama bin Laden was responsible for the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, that bin Laden was hiding in Afghanistan, that the Afghans would not turn him over to stand trial, and that the US military was going in to get him.

After 20 years of bombing weddings, funerals, kid’s soccer games, medical centers, farmers, schools, and murdering large numbers of Afghan women and children, President Trump said enough and announced he was bringing US soldiers home. All it took to block the president of the United States was one corrupt, scheming, neoconservative, who made up a story that Russia was paying Afghans to kill American soldiers. The neocon handed the lie to an obliging New York Times which never saw a lie unworthy to run with, and that was the end of the withdrawal.

The entirety of the presstitute herd, a passel of anti-Trump Democrats, and the Republican Liz Cheney declared the lie to be confirmed fact. President Trump was again demonized as a Putin agent for wanting to withdraw the troops instead of holding Putin responsible for the deaths of American soldiers. Moronic Americans actually believed that bounties paid by Putin was the only reason American soldiers had died. Parents of soldiers killed in the Afghan War demanded to know why President Trump was pulling the troops out instead of facing down Putin.

Now that Biden wants to bring the soldiers home, the story has to be adjusted. The “confirmed fact” has been turned into a report of low confidence for which there is no evidence.

Listen to Tucker Carlson walk you through the story, and if you don’t already, you will understand that the presstitutes, Democrats such as Adam Schiff, and the Republican Liz Cheney are totally unreliable. Think of all the people these monsters got killed. https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-afghanistan-russia-bounties-new-york-times-lies

As I pointed out at the time, the fake news story was nonsensical on its face. The alleged bounty was pointless. The Afghans had been killing invading American soldiers for two decades. It was a war. Why would Russia bother to pay Afghans to do what they had every reason to do and were already doing?

Not even Adam Schiff and the NY Times, CNN, Washington Post, NPR, and the rest of the lie machine that comprises the “media,” could possibly have believed such an absurd story. They were lying and their target was President Donald Trump.

Isn’t this treason? Isn’t an electorate insouciant that sends Schiff and Pelosi to represent them? After the exposure of lie after lie, why do people still read the NY Times, listen to NPR, watch CNN?

It is the American people themselves who are America’s worst enemy. The United States cannot survive the insouciance of its people.
