Washington Post Debunks Fake $83 Billion Pricetag of Weapons Seized by Taliban — But Only Awards ‘Three Pinocchios’

I would worry about a system that made a 70 year-old drug addict in a diaper and a cheap suit with nothing on his resume but bankruptcy, sexual assault, mob ties and money laundering into the biggest cash cow the MSM has ever seen. They will be looking hard for the next beast. - Noel Casler
