Much of the case for the Iraq War was based on the Bush administration’s claim that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction. When the United States declared an end to the war late in 2011, more than 4,400 American military members had been killed and nearly 32,000 wounded. No weapons of mass destruction had been found.
It’s one of the most significant and catastrophic intelligence errors in U.S. history. A bipartisan commission found that U.S. intelligence “seriously misjudged” Iraq’s weapons program because of their “heavy reliance on a human source–codenamed ‘Curveball’–whose information later proved to be unreliable.” The commission wrote, “Even more misleading was the river of intelligence that flowed from the CIA to top policymakers over long periods of time–in the President’s Daily Brief (PDB)” and other reports that were “more alarmist” and “less nuanced.”
Kremlin, Trump, Taliban Refute NYT Report Claiming Russia Paid Islamic Group to Kill US Soldiers
Some Americans are calling for a new national anthem amid the nationwide trend of removing monuments, statues and other symbols that have ties to slavery.
Francis Scott Key wrote the poem “Defence of Fort M’Henry” on September 14, 1814 when he saw the US flag flying over the fort at dawn’s early light, according to the Smithsonian Institute,
This poem later served as the lyrics for “The Star-Spangled Banner,” which became the official national anthem of the US in 1931.
However, citizens are now asking for a new national anthem because of Key’s ties to slavery.
The Smithsonian reports that Key was a slave owner and defended slave owners’ rights to own human property.
The New York Times’ allegation that Russia has been offering reward money to Taliban-linked militants in Afghanistan to kill US and coalition troops has been attacked from all sides, with Moscow, the Trump administration and the Taliban itself saying that the claims aren’t true.
There is no general agreement among US intelligence agencies about the veracity of claims made in the New York Times about Russian military intelligence offering reward money to encourage the killing of US troops in Afghanistan, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has announced.
“There is no consensus within the intelligence community on these allegations and, in effect, there are dissenting opinions from some in the intelligence community with regard to the veracity of what’s being reported, and the veracity of the underlying allegations continue to be evaluated,” McEnany said, speaking to reporters on Monday.

On Friday, The New York Times ran an article claiming that Trump had received an intelligence report suggesting that Russia solicited the attack on US soldiers in Afghanistan by paying a bounty to the Taliban.
US President Donald Trump has lambasted the story by the New York Times suggesting that he was informed about Russia’s purported involvement in an attack on US troops in Afghanistan. In a tweet, the president stressed that no one in his administration had ever received such reports.
Soon after Trump’s response to the claims presented in the article, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told ABC that the president’s reaction indicates that he wants to “ignore any allegation against Russia”.
The story, released by The New York Times on Friday, claims that Russia paid armed Islamic insurgents from the Taliban to attack US soldiers in Afghanistan. The newspaper reported citing an unidentified source that the US president was aware of the development but failed to take action.
NPR has altered an article after they were busted using a misleading photo of a ‘vehicle ramming’ in Louisville to make the claim that ‘right-wing extremists’ are targeting protesters with cars.
Here’s what actually happened – the driver of the car, a woman with dreadlocks, was attacked by the ‘peaceful’ protesters, one of whom reportedly pulled a gun on her – and another who was struck as she accelerated to escape:
The driver of the vehicle came forward and won’t face charges, while two of the protesters have been arrested.

A man who shot a protester in Seattle, Washington on Sunday was outed as a “white supremacist” by liberals on the internet, but it turns out they were totally wrong.
Video shows the man being attacked by multiple rioters while driving down a street being blocked by protesters before the driver comes to a stop when demonstraters place a barricade in his way.
The driver was surrounded by attackers hitting his car and when one of them reached into his vehicle to punch him in the face, the motorist shot the man.
The British media reported that black lives matter protests were ‘largely peaceful’ this past weekend, despite video after video of ‘protesters’ attacking police, vandalising property, and even attempting to burn flags on war memorials.
A man who appears to be either Hispanic or a light-skinned African-American was filmed shooting an African-American rioter assaulting him as he drove near a group of protesters blocking the streets in Seattle on Sunday.
The media and Twitterati falsely reported this as a “plowing” attack carried out by a “white” man based off initial videos and wild speculation only to have an extended video and photographs of the man undermine their narrative.
Extended video shows the man was being attacked by multiple rioters while driving down a street which was blocked off at the end by protesters. The man came to a full stop due to a blockage being in the road and was surrounded by attackers hitting his car. He then shot one man who was reaching into his car and physically assaulting him.
Verified Twitter users shared an erroneous side-by-side image supposedly showing Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin wearing a “Make Whites Great Again” hat.
Several major accounts followed by millions spread the image claiming the person wearing the hat is the same officer who suffocated Minneapolis resident George Floyd on video – with no action taken by Twitter after the image was verified to be inaccurate.
On the left side of the image is a screen shot of Officer Chauvin, seen kneeling on Floyd’s neck as he struggled to breathe. On the right is a photo of a man wearing a “Make Whites Great Again” who has been identified as professional troll Jonathan Lee Riches.
Researchers only had to go six names in to the New York Times’ long list of nearly 100,000 “coronavirus victims” to find a person who was murdered rather than killed by the virus.
