Lying Hack Gets Promotion: Biden’s Pick for Top Pentagon Post Is Former Aide Who Pushed Garbage Steele Dossier to Damage Trump

Dr. Colin Kahl is an unhinged lunatic who pushed the Steele Dossier to damage President Trump.

Kahl defended the Obama regime’s decision to buy off the Iranian terror regime with billions of dollars for a weak nuclear deal.
The Iranian regime then spent the dollars on funding terror groups in the region.

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) destroyed Colin Kahl for being wrong on EVERY major decision on war and peace.

So it only makes sense that the Biden-Obama regime would promote him to a top Pentagon post.

The Washington Examiner reported:

President-elect Joe Biden’s pick for a top Pentagon post has a lengthy Twitter history of defending British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s discredited dossier and promoting allegations of Trump-Russia collusion.

A statement issued on Wednesday said Colin Kahl, a former deputy assistant to President Barack Obama and national security adviser to then-vice president Biden from 2014 to 2017, was announced as Biden’s nominee for undersecretary of defense for policy, along with Kathleen Hicks picked as deputy defense secretary. Biden said Kahl would “help lead the Department of Defense with integrity and resolve” and “safeguard the lives and interests of the American people.” He currently works as co-director of Stanford’s Center for International Security and Cooperation and as a strategic adviser at the Penn Biden Center.

“I know how hard the professionals in Policy work every day to keep America safe,” Kahl tweeted in response to the announcement. “I would be honored to lead this great organization and work with Kathleen hicks and Lloyd Austin to strengthen DoD!”

Reports emerged in 2018 that Kahl was targeted in a “dirty ops” effort seeking to discredit the Iran nuclear deal, with claims that the Israeli private intelligence agency Black Cube was hired by Trump aides to find damaging information about him. Black Cube responded by saying that it “has no relation whatsoever to the Trump administration … or to the Iran nuclear deal.” Kahl tweeted at the time that “Black Cube’s dodge is not credible.”

But Kahl’s talk about Russia is what underlay some of the biggest controversies during the Trump presidency.

The 2018 book Russian Roulette by journalists Michael Isikoff and David Corn said Kahl was part of the small Obama national security team inner circle working on Russian interference issues in 2016. “Kahl had to insist to [national security adviser Susan] Rice that he be allowed to attend so Biden could be kept up to speed,” they wrote.
