Who benefits? US propaganda of course.
While whispers that some of the victims were undercover CIA operatives have been swirling for the better part of a year, NBC’s insider source confirmed that some of those who fell victim to the attacks were CIA employees.
After the attacks tapered off toward the end of 2017, the State Department began to wonder if whoever was behind the strikes had decided to pull back. But then two more cases were reported in the spring of this year. Meanwhile, a case was reported at a US consulate in Guangzhou, China.
According to NBC, the US hasn’t found a way to effectively protect its diplomats spies from these attacks, but at the end of the day, this could be a moot point. Because evidence that Russia is aggressively attacking US personnel could soon become the exact justification that deep state agents inside the Trump administration need to increase diplomatic pressure on Russia (with sanctions or other methods) or even push back harder in Syria.
