The NY Times just got a bunch of people killed.

All because of its hatred of Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress.

Here’s how. (Thread)…
The Times wants us to believe our Russian intel sources have dried up.

Reporters @julianbarnes & @AllMattNYT shared classified details that speak of our struggling clandestine efforts against Putin & his regime.

Never mind that highlighting our weakness atrenghrens his hand.
To wit, this para:

“Informants close to Putin are very rare... The United States, in recent years, has had only a few, and at times been reliant on only one or two for the most important insights on Mr. Putin, according to former officials.”

Let that treachery sink in.
First, the NYT is broadcasting the number of our Russian spies & their access.

Putin will now redouble his internal investigations to find these moles.

That means dead informants, both our own and our allies’.

Bravo, NY Times. Blood is on your hands. You’ve aided our enemy.
Yet NYT didn’t stop there. They gave up addl info that Putin will use to kill more of our spies.

“Russian informants could still meet their C.I.A. handlers outside Russia, further from Moscow’s counterintelligence apparatus.”

How patriotic of NYT writers to expose tradecraft.
So who helped the NYT in their treachery? Look at the sourcing.

Lots of references to “Former officials.”

That’s almost certainly Obama-era officers. How so? The rest of the article heavily quotes these former Obama-era, anti-Trump bureaucrats.
Case in point: @john_sipher

He’s a fmr CIA Officer, anti-Trumper, and believes the Steele dossier is true.

His most ironic quote: “Publicizing sources is really bad for the business.”

Yes it is. So why support an article that does just that, John?

Blood on your hands, Sipher.
Why did the NYT publish this stuff?

Their goal was to suggest the loss of Russian intel was Trump’s fault.


“The outing of an F.B.I. informant under scrutiny by the House intelligence committee — an examination encouraged by President Trump — has had a chilling effect...”
Never mind that they shoot down their own conspiracy later in the article.

“Current American officials said there is no direct evidence that the exposure of Mr. Halper has been cited by overseas informants as a source of concern.”
As a former CIA Officer, I am infuriated and outraged at this on-going treachery by the media & my fmr intel colleagues. It just won’t stop.

Rather than take the fight to the ballot box, these traitors would rather burn America down in the press. All to score a partisan points.
Bottom line: The NYT served Putin & his interests today. It’s a horrific moment for America, her democracy, & our clandestine warriors.

It’s also a moment where the Times — by intention or unintended effect — has become indefensible.

They became an enemy of the American people.
