1. Not sure about CNN

For some reason I'd thought CNN also confirmed it, but they only independently confirmed the existence of the bounty.

Russian intelligence officers for the military intelligence GRU recently offered money to Taliban militants in Afghanistan as rewards if they killed US or UK troops there, a European intelligence official told CNN.

EDIT: As per Trump being told, CNN still seems to rely on the NYT.

3. FYI on CNN

David Gergen on CNN: He would have been briefed "instantaneously”.

4. According to The Hill

The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and Fox News, however, published reports confirming the Times's reporting.

7. Almost afraid to ask again

Somehow this question is not allowed but

Have any of the news organizations looked at the deaths of US soldiers to see if there is any correlation between deaths and Afghan militants or criminals in an attempt to verify the bounty story?

I mean there are dead bodies and after action reports etc

Were the deaths in combat, by ambush or assassination ? My understanding is there are something like 2 dozen deaths.

It seems to me the intelligence agencies and the military would know or would like to know

Seems pretty straightforward to me. Trump is claiming fake news , should be easy to find out the truth

Perhaps out of respect for the soldiers families it is a secret?
