    Surge Summary: It develops last year’s story about Russia’s paying bounties to Taliban operatives for the killing of U.S. troops in Afghanistan was without corroboration. The “weaponizing” of America’s intelligence agencies is no good for the nation – as this incident and the disregard of the Hunter Biden/computer story confirm.

    Remember the outrage last year when a leaked report suggested that Russia had paid bounties to the Taliban to kill American troops in Afghanistan?  Democrats in Congress and the media used the report to hammer Trump for being soft on Russia.  Joe Biden raised the issue during one of the debates.

    The Pentagon said at the time that there was no corroborating evidence.  Intelligence officials added that President Trump wasn’t briefed on the report because “it was unverified.”

    Besides, it’s absurd on its face.  The Taliban never needed financial inducements to kill Americans!  Their radical Islamic creed was enough to cause them to kill “infidels.”

    Well, the intelligence community now admits that it has “low confidence” in the accuracy of the report.  Translation:  It was garbage.

    Sadly, it was just another example of the weaponization of our intelligence agencies against Donald Trump and conservatives.

    This is a serious problem.  We need strong surveillance of our enemies.  But the left and its Deep State allies seem to think that conservatives are the enemy!

    Remember the dozens of so-called “intelligence experts” who all said that the Hunter Biden laptop story was “Russian disinformation”?  NPR and the social media tech giants used that claim to shut down the story.  Well, they were wrong!  (Here and here.)

    Over the years, I have developed strong relationships with the leaders of pro-defense, national security groups.  I am taking the initiative to reach out to them to develop strategies for exposing corruption and political abuses within our intelligence community.
