The CIA isn't prohibited from having agents who work for the New York Times, MSNBC, etc. It's reasonable to expect that they've got people embedded throughout the government and corporate America... Oh wait.. Global corporations.

I mean, all through this war in the middle east bounties have been put on US military heads. They must not have read American Sniper.

They lied about Iraq, Libya, Syria and on and on. Now suddenly we’re supposed to take their word for it, that the Taliban needs any motivation amd especially from their Russian arch enemies? Besides the west created and funded Al Qaeda and Taliban for many years while the russians tried to contain the threat of kikitant islam on their border.
