Russia-Obsessed News Networks Silent After Igor Danchenko Appears in Court

As the Russian collusion hoax continues to collapse with the Durham probe, news networks that were once preoccupied with coverage of Russia are now running from it. 

According to NewsBusters, “On Thursday, Special Prosecutor John Durham brought Russian national Igor Danchenko — who was the primary source in the infamous and debunked dossier — into court on charges of lying to the FBI with his information.” 

Reports are nonexistent of Danchenko’s indictment on the networks that devoted themselves to covering Russian collusion during the early years of Trump’s presidency. NewsBusters reports, “The ABC, CBS, NBC evening news programs (January 20, 2017 – July 20, 2019) alone devoted an astonishing 2,634 minutes to it.”

Journalist Glenn Greenwald appeared on FNC’s MediaBuzz with host Howard Kurtz to detail how the news of Danchenko’s indictment demolishes any trace of trustworthiness of the media. 

“News networks that were once preoccupied with coverage of Russia are now running from it…”

“The overall narrative of the Trump presidency that came from the liberal sector of the media is proving to be a fraud and not an innocent one but a deliberate and coordinated one that came from a union between Clinton operatives, the security state services, the FBI and the CIA, and the corporate media. Those are the guilty parties that drowned our politics in this fraud for three or four years,” Greenwald said. 

Greenwald explains that the media is trying to pass this embarrassing mark on their record by using a strategy that pretends “the Steele dossier [was] covered only by cable crazies like Rachel Maddow and people like that, they’re kind of trying to scapegoat her and pretend that the real serious journalistic institutions like The New York Times and the Post that gave Pulitzers or were given Pulitzers for this story were actually serious journalists who didn’t fall for any of this.” 

Greenwald adds that there was “one little sentence buried in the Washington Post article, ‘Oh this calls into question some of our past reporting.’ I guess it’s better than nothing but it’s kind of shocking that that’s all they are going to do in passing — is just to say ‘Yeah, I guess it maybe actually shows that much of what we said was wrong.’” 

The false narrative of the Steele dossier was peddled incessantly by the media who had their goal set on destroying President Trump and his administration.

Taliban Holds Parade for 250 Newly Trained Soldiers with American-Made Weapons Left Behind

As the result of an ill-prepared withdrawal that went horribly wrong, the Taliban now holds a large stock of weapons and equipment left behind.

On Sunday, Taliban forces held a very bone-chilling parade showing off their captured American-made armored military vehicles and Russian helicopters. The act was “a display that showed their ongoing transformation from an insurgent force to a regular standing army” writes CNN.

The Taliban are no longer terror insurgents fighting against American forces that had once freed Afghanistan from the Taliban. As the result of an ill-prepared withdrawal that went horribly wrong, the Taliban now holds a large stock of weapons and equipment left behind.

The parade was part of a graduation for 250 newly trained Taliban soldiers, said defense ministry spokesman Enayatullah Khwarazmi. CNN reports, “The exercise involved dozens of US-made M117 armored security vehicles driving slowly up and down a major Kabul road with MI-17 helicopters patrolling overhead. Many soldiers carried American-made M4 assault rifles.”

Tragically, much of the weaponry taunted in the parade by Taliban forces were supplied by the United States to the American-backed government in Kabul during the past two decades. The equipment was to aid an Afghan national force and make it capable of fighting the Taliban.

As forces fled Afghanistan, some of the military equipment provided by western forces was flown into Central Asian Countries in an attempt to avoid it landing in the hands of the Taliban. It remains unclear exactly how much of what did end up in Taliban control is still operational.

American troops destroyed over 70 aircraft and dozens of armored vehicles, as well as disabled air defenses before flying out of Kabul during the frenetic evacuation. CNN reports “Taliban officials have said that pilots, mechanics and other specialists from the former Afghan National Army would be integrated into a new force, which has also started wearing conventional military uniforms in place of the traditional Afghan clothing normally worn by their fighters.”
