New York Times Deploys Heavy Gun to Back 'Intel' on Russian Bounties

• https://original.antiwar.com by Ray McGovern

The New York Times is pulling out all the stops in promoting its dubious story on Russia offering bounty for dead U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.

Wednesday's installment, a "news analysis" by Times veteran writers David E. Sanger and Eric Schmitt, treats the allegations that Russia paid Taliban or Taliban-related terrorists to kill US troops as flat fact:

"Russia's complicity in the bounty plot came into sharper focus on Tuesday as the The New York Times reported that American officials intercepted electronic data showing large financial transfers from a bank account controlled by Russia's military intelligence agency to a Taliban-linked account."

This is presented as "bolstering other evidence of the plot, including detainee interrogations." The take from the Afghan-run interrogations is, ipso facto, highly dubious; and we need to know a lot more about the alleged new "electronic data."
