@realDonaldTrump Mr. President, why are we exiting the Open Skies treaty? It is a move that will clearly limit our intelligence gathering of hostile foreign countries, like Russia...oh wait...now I understand why you want to leave. Nevermind.

On the latest episode of Brussels Sprouts, @steven_pifer and @AnnwieAnna join @AKendallTaylor and @jteurope to discuss the U.S. decision to withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty. Listen: https://t.co/T7sRmqgM8u


“Indeed, the decision seems intended to reinforce the message Trump has been sending to NATO throughout his presidency: that the 70-year-old alliance cannot rely on the United States.” https://t.co/2g7HmJuP9j


Don't forget, Trump, Pompeo and Esper pulled the US from the Open Skies Treaty, so starting December 21, 2020, the US will limit surveillance of Russian bases. We will have no eyes on Russian military for one month before inauguration while they prepare to protect their assets.

Justin's piece is far better than most, but it doesn't correct two falsehoods: - The Russian Digital Electro-Optical Sensor was fully compliant, since 2013, and not "high res" in any way. - The Russian Open Skies Treaty flight *did not* fly over Bedminster NJ in August 2017

Would it surprise you to know that the August 2017 Open Skies Treaty flight didn't fly over the golf course? Nobody, but yours truly, fact checked to see if the plane flew over the golf course. It didn't. Transponder data shoes it. Yet, even in Lawfare, it's now quoted as a fact. https://t.co/ggYp9vsdFt


Justin gets to it later on, but it is impossible for the Russians to use their flights to collect any "illegal" or otherwise improper information using their Open Skies Treaty overflights, per the treaty, which allows them to take pics of anything, anywhere. Everyone does.


media embeded in tweet
In context I do not believe Justin is trying to mislead, but others are, and this is one of their ways to do so. The Open Skies Treaty has 34 ratified signatories, and should never be described in bilateral terms. The treaty allows all signatories to overfly each other. https://t.co/ECR8iR3lCB


Remember that Tim Morrison is well known to be a radical, another one of Sen Tom Cotton (R-AR) lackeys from when he was a staffer spreading Open Skies Treaty disinformation. Quoting Morrison about Open Skies is like quoting Steve Miller about immigration🤷‍♂️ https://t.co/qGYRNxyvNQ


Fred nailed it in early October, while others waited until the end of October to cover the story, as I suspect they were requested to by Tim Morrison; part of his communications plan to bury the lead. Tim is an architect of Open Skies Treaty #disinfo. https://t.co/sAGrXbXSuv

By all indications, exiting (and trying to kill) the Open Skies Treaty is a project of a faction of Republicans who have been spreading #disinformation about the treaty for over 5 years, and one of them is quoted in this piece.🤔 #awkward https://t.co/7AiUwApjPn https://t.co/S7MA6f8QUG


@GB46336765 @Elie936Elie @pruss34 @LeslieLKing_JR @maddow Good thing they never sided with Vlad against our intelligence agencies or lifted sanctions or tried to get them back in the G7 or cancelled the open skies treaty or abandoned our position in Syria to them or you might be really mad.

@EmmanuelOrange @jamespeshaw @StuartBDonovan Bullshit. Politicians love climate change as an issue because CO2 levels keep going up and up every year and they never get held to account for their failure. To confront the USA on its withdrawal from the IRBM treaty, New Start, Open Skies, etc would actually take work
