Sounds like BS from the deep state for perpetual war.

Deep State? Just what does that mean? Is there a cabal hiding behind a curtain directing nefarious actions against our government? This veteran finds it appalling that other veterans believe such claptrap. Bounty’s being offered by our sworn enemy should come as no surprise to any of us. A President who believes the narrative coming from our adversaries over our own intelligence group is disheartening. Elect a clown, expect a circus. Unfortunately this three ring circus is being lead by a draft dodger who used his fathers money and connections to avoid his call to duty.

Deep State is the career bureaucrats who think they actually run the country, and in some ways they do. Congress long ago gave them the power to enact laws so they would be able to cozy up to the money crowd so they would be able to raise enough money to get re-elected, and over the years they were able to build a sweet retirement.
I have to disagree with you, we did not elect a clown, we actually elected a man who has kept his promises to those who elected him. He has also done more for those who were disenfranchised, and until this Chinese Virus things were rolling along pretty well. Black, Hispanic, Asian and Women were all employed in record numbers and at decent to really good salaries too.
I served in the 60's and 70's there were a lot of men who did not serve, many were indeed draft dodgers. Get over it, that is history, this President respects and honors our veterans, and our active duty personnel. I note that the previous President did not even return the salute of the soldiers who saluted him, this President does so in a very professional manner.
I really am sorry for those of you apparent Democrats who hate this man so much.

Sounds like another leak to try and undermine President Trump and his cabinet and again as usual the fake news jumped the gun show us the evidence!

Here we go again. Donald, Limbaugh and Hannity say it is a hoax and Trump lemmings follow along. No factual evidence could be accepted.

Having intel briefed leaders of the Army at the highest levels, I can tell you that you never brief on unsubstantiated info, even if you have a hunch.

Submitted by j_witherel85 : Jul 2, 2020 4:30pm

BTW, the Taliban has been killing us for 19 years, they don't need the bounty, and the Russians don't have the money. They would rather buy an American citizen.

I fully agree. And from my personal know experience, when information is placed inside the daily intelligence reports it is based off more than a guess.

But it is old news, and has never been proven, and the briefing of the President is on proven true or false no rumors that have been floating around for the last 10 years or so. I am sorry that you have such a dislike for our Commander in Chief.

Maybe we will now finally be rid of or Commander-In-Lies!

More BS from the commie media. This raw intel was released in 2016. More lame efforts to get Trump. He wasn’t briefed. Another nothing burger. I’m surprised the legion is so uninformed that they would even ask this question.

If that were true there would be a much higher casualty rate.
Anyone who has spent time deployed has had to deal with that rumor.

Can't see any reason for Russia to even bother, the Taliban are perfectly happy to kill Americans as well as anyone else who gets in their way. This is one of those "rumors" that usually cannot be proven nor disproved. The President is right to wait for concrete information, and then act accordingly. I personally are more concerned about China at this point, they seem hell bent on taking over everything they can.

This is a surprise to see this question on here ??? We expect our leadership to tell us the truth or the fiction ! Surely high ranking officers can tell us it is real and has been used forever by all countries !!! Ask all presidential candidates with no military training to go to boot camp or Ranger training before the election and publish their results !!

Commie media? Really? The cult hero president you love regularly treats our allies like dirt and admits to sharing love letters with the communist dictator who runs North Korea. He kowtows to Communist China's president. He constantly sides with Communist Russia's Putin against our intelligence communities. But somehow the media is commie? All except Limbaugh and Hannity I would surmise.

It is sad to see that the hatred of our CIC overrides some folks common sense. We have provided arms to the Afghanies when the Russians were at war with them, as well as the Ukrainians more recently. Should Russia have gotten into a war with the US for that? There are too many countries with nukes out there and too many itchy trigger fingers. I for one am sick and tired of sending our kids to fight. We spend horrific amounts of blood and treasure and seem not to accomplish much. Worry more about how your kids, their kids, and their kids children are going to pay off the $24 trillion debt these politicians have incurred. We are living off borrowed money. The Russians, Indians and Chinese are discussing changing the world currency away from the USD. If that happens, we will quickly become a poverty stricken mess.

I believe our intelligence services and our scientists. I Pray that this virus will be controlled b a vaccine. It will not disappear on its own. Wear a mask.

I remember when we were a Country that had faith and trust in our leaders. One thing that really concerns me is how we keep hearing lies from our CIC.he does not take responsibility for anything almost like a broken record he blames others when he is the one that was elected to protect and defend the citizens of our United States OF AMERICA. He seems to be subservient to Putin. Cannot believe the state our Country s in these days.

I'd love to see the opinions from the people if the exact same facts had come out during President Obama's two terms. I wonder if all the people being cavalier about Russia taking out hits on our troops would still be that way when Obama was in charge. Somehow I doubt it. Trump's had his own Benghazi with Niger and not a peep from the Right about it. He had the rocket attacks on our troops to which he said the doctors were wrong, they just have headaches. Now this. No matter what puts our troops at risk Trump fans just don't seem to care. It's like they're fine with him killing our troops as long as he stays in office. Sad. That's not patriotism. That's following a cult leader.

What I find telling is the Legion leadership is quiet on all things Trump. He calls soldiers suckers and losers and not a peep from the Legion. It is disgraceful and shows how the Legion appears to be more interested in asking for money than standing up for Veterans.
