On another note USA doesn't need to buy Russian uranium and especially with tensions high they may fear Russia may stop supply (13%). A breakdown of roughly what US imports.
Nuclear energy companies in the U.S. didn’t import uranium from China in 2018. Instead, they imported from a variety of countries in short- and long-term contracts: Canada (24%), Kazakhstan (20%), Australia (18%), Russia (13%), Uzbekistan (6%), and Namibia (5%). so second highest import is Kazakhstan, so if USA controlled that and got it pretty much for free, and even if it lost Russian import it would simply bring the additional 13% from USA controlled Kazakhstan, in fact it would probably rape even more and reduce its import from other countries and get it all pretty much free.
I rest my case.
Did the US import Afghanistani uranium under a different label to hide the theft?
CIA backed flights in and out of Afghanistan without the knowledge of Afghan government, or maybe they knew but turned a blind eye if money is crossing someone's hand.
There was a documentary about it a few years ago.
