Everyone in the world knows America's invasion of Iraq was a lie, an oil raid, from day one. Everyone who stood against Bush and Cheney is dead, in jail or in hiding. 


Similarly, anyone who, from day one, knew 9/11 had a "smell" about it was eliminated, down to academics, diplomats, intelligence agents, anyone who spoke up and thousands did ON 9/11.



Not only is there no Al Qaeda, but what we know to be "the Taliban" is actually the Northern Alliance.


The terror acts, persecution of women, the extremism, is all orchestrated and staged by CIA contractors with Blackwater and related companies, using Northern Alliance drug lords and their gangs pretending to be "Taliban."


This, in itself, is only one of the Bush era scandals. Now we have had access to an intelligence dump from Afghanistan.


The facts are startling. That war, our "good war," was even worse and is being continued by trickery.


We have startling reports of human trafficking, children being stolen around Afghanistan and sold into sexual slavery by the tens of thousands, stories of terror bombings and assassinations meant to prolong war, rig elections, end negotiations and compromise and control key regions to maximize drug profits.

With full access to "on the ground" intelligence in every province of Afghanistan, the truth about that war will make you sick. Not one word that hits the press is true.

We will start with the recent visit by General Dempsey. He had just left Tel Aviv after telling Netanyahu that America would never support an attack on Iran. NEVER.


When Dempsey landed, his plane was rocketed and blamed on the Taliban.


Solid intelligence cites the Northern Alliance in cooperation with Israeli agents in Afghanistan, some of the hundreds there, mostly with false German passports who run half the phony United Nations NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations).

They, along with Indian intelligence, the RAW, train bomb makers, stage attacks, supply detonators and the endless stream of Indian built weapons, run training camps that actually do exist and have been managing a covert war on Pakistan while the U.S. has turned a blind eye even though they are responsible for hundreds of attacks on Americans.



Karzai - What leader can have any credibility

who has to be protected by foreign bodyguards?


Let's look at Karzai, a Durani tribesman, representing, at best, 4% of the population but personally governing an area smaller than the average American backyard.


He can't be given a large enough security detail to freely travel in his own capitol, much less country. His rule has been maintained through a flood of money, some billions in American aid, he pays out in bribes.


The other money, you can guess about that.


Afghanistan produced almost NO opium when the U.S. invaded in late 2001. Our chosen allies were the drug lords of the Northern Alliance, seen as criminals and foreigners by the majority of Afghans.


They have been the worst allies imaginable and our continued dependence on them and our appointment of Karzai, a former oil executive, as president has made things worse.


Karzai has surrounded himself with former Communists and Northern Alliance outcasts, they make up his government, them and anyone willing to take money.

America's Special Envoy, the "now dead" Richard Holbrooke is the one responsible for certifying the narcotics production effort as central to U.S. policy.


It received key Republican support in Congress, and made war in Afghanistan possible forever.



Richard Holbrooke

the Diplomat Drug Lord


Colonel Eugene Khrushchev, former First Secretary of both the Soviet and Russian embassies in Kabul, an editor of Veterans Today and longtime friend calls Holbrooke one of the world's biggest "drug kingpins."


There are more American names involved including two American senators up to their necks in the Afghan drug business, from the "money laundering" end, making use of thousands of secret bank accounts in the Cayman Islands, Switzerland and elsewhere. Any of this sound familiar?


Afghanistan doesn't export opium paste anymore.


Key Americans, many elected officials, some military, aided by foreign intelligence services, India, Britain, Canada and Germany have built the world's heroin processing industry there.


Shipping is handled by the Northern  Alliance, for the local market, Afghanistan is a nation of addicts now, and the massive Russian market.


Europe is handled out of two bases, Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo, where the U.S. flies heroin and turns it over to the Kosovo/Albanian mafia for distribution and to Belgium, where it is distributed for Northern Europe.


Much goes directly to the United States via long range drones of the private air force of CIA contracting companies, shipped as "rendition prisoners."


Camp Bondsteel







Early in the Afghan War, 6000 POWs were taken by American led Northern Alliance forces. All were murdered.


This is a fact, unreported, but verifiable and indisputable. The orders came, not from some local leader but the White House. America wanted a war "forever," not one we could win, as we never wanted to win.


Winning a war means

ending a war

and when a war ends,

the money stops.


About 5% of those we are fighting are "Taliban," a word that means "student."  


For years, the press and U.S. Army has kept the truth from the American people.




Also HERE...



The Taliban has not only tried to negotiate with the United States for year but they also have advocated that the U.S. begin a serious opium eradication program.


They eliminated the problem before and say they are ready to do it again, with or without us. Please remember, Taliban use no money, have no banks, have no planes, have no stores, have nothing to buy, own nothing, and certainly aren't part of the drug business.


The idea that they need money is insane.

The real Taliban stands ready to join with the governments of the U.S. and Russia to end all drug trafficking in the region and would have done so long ago.


As to who they are, what they believe and how "extreme" they actually are, every word the American people have been told is a lie.



Gulbuddin Hekmatyar


The worst criminals in Afghanistan like Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, the "Butcher of Kabul" have secretly worked for the Americans for years though on "terrorist lists."


Is he still living in a VIP suite on Bagram Air Force Base as a top advisor to the U.S. command? He was last time I checked though anyone thought to be connected to him, no matter now many "degrees of separation" has been "drone killed," jailed or silenced.


We don't want the world to know that we communicate with real terrorists through monsters.


We don't want anyone to know our allies are, in fact, real terrorists and always have been.







We have learned from sources in Afghanistan that acts of terrorism credited to the Taliban, school burnings, murders, acid throwing, suppression of women, are not done by the Taliban at all.

We have the names, we hold proof that Taliban "terrorism" has been systematically staged by U.S. allies in the Northern Alliance in order to feed news organizations around the world a continual flow of propaganda in order to support false ideas of extremism.

The acts credited to the Taliban are done by groups of Tajik's close to Karzai and CIA contractor units.


The real terrorism is a result of actions by these groups, some of it actually "on demand" by American private intelligence contractors tied to worldwide drug distribution that need to keep the mythology going.








much of the "Haqqani Network" said to be under the control of Pakistan's ISI is, as with the "Taliban," staged phony terrorism paid for by the U.S. and performed by the gangsters of the Northern Alliance, the group the U.S. used as allies.

The whole thing is a farce, Taliban, Haqqani, bin Laden, Al Qaeda, all just cover and deception for a long planned geo-political, geo-gangster move toward world domination as described by the Project for a New American Century, the author of America's downfall.









Some say the best light infantry in the world



Most of Afghanistan and much of Pakistan is Pashtun.


These are the best fighters in the world as 150 years of British experience and the Russian defeat will tell you.


They exist on both sides of the border and are ruled by two groups, one of political representatives who represent Pashtuns in Pakistan and another in Afghanistan.


The second group are the real rulers, the traditional tribal leaders. The U.S. has assassinated 700 Pashtun tribal leaders, calling them "militants" or "Taliban," when, in fact, they are the actual government of Afghanistan and always have been. This is what the "drone war" is for.


Real government in Afghanistan, recognized even by the U.S., is tribal "jirga's" or conferences, attended by local, regional and national leaders. Leadership is traditional, based on tribal affiliation, family and personal leadership characteristics.


Karzai has none of the aspects needed to lead, he is of a minor tribe of "middlemen," the Durani, he is backed by the U.S. and the Northern Alliance, a minority group of what were once migratory tribesmen from the Soviet Union who became Afghanistan's real organized crime.


They are America's best friends and Karzai's backers, those and the people who take money and Karzai gives out billions in U.S. taxpayer cash to his friends.

The Pashtuns, those in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and they number in the tens of millions, all are militarily trained, all are armed, will, eventually, push the Northern Alliance out of Afghanistan entirely, based on what has happened during the U.S. occupation.


That is already "written." 


As Americans say in slang, "they are toast."

We have more than substantial proof that the enemies America claims to be fighting are created by the U.S. itself.


America attacked the majority of Afghanistan's people, all are armed tribesmen, conveniently accused them of being "Al Qaeda," a group that has never existed in Afghanistan, not one member of that imaginary group has been found, not one of their bases has been located and we have the video to prove it.








Hamid Gul during his Soviet Afghan War days



There is no ISI presence in Afghanistan despite the GOP and statements of stooges paid to say so. Pakistan's ISI, their version of the CIA, is entirely made up of ethnic groups unacceptable to the people of Afghanistan.


The idea that they run the Taliban is so fanciful as to be laughable. The idea that Veterans Today editor, the 75 year old General Hamid Gul is running the war against America is equally insane. Gul has more friends in Washington than a pharmaceutical lobbyist.


He has been long retired, takes care of his grandchildren, is still well informed but lives a very sheltered life.


Why the U.S. hates him is simple.


He was the first person, head of one of the world's major intelligence agencies, to cite 9/11 as a U.S. government "false flag" operation. He carefully explained the "why and how" using decades of intelligence background and military expertise.


No American officer had the guts to do the same except Army Intelligence Chief General Stubblebein and he has "slipped away" as age, threats and abuse have had their toll.

Every story about the ISI backing the Taliban is the creation of the Israeli/Indian alliance. Pakistan wishes it had the influence in Afghanistan it had back during the 80s when it worked with the Mujahedeen and CIA so closely.


I know many of those involved, most are aged, some extremely so.

That reminds me of the Taliban, most of them are, of course, dead and those that now exist are a different generation and have different beliefs.


In truth, we never knew their beliefs anyway. They began as U.S. allies and the only reason we invaded is because they wanted too much money for the right to build oil and gas pipelines across Afghanistan.


This is what we thought.




Where the good guys became bad guys

because the endless money made them even more powerful.



Nobody imagined that America would build 98% of the world's heroin empire there as well, an empire that has contributed to the 15 million Americans now in prison or under some aspect of custody.


With "privatization" of that industry, keeping heroin flowing into America has two benefits,

  1. it fills private prisons, whose owners fund the GOP

  2. it keeps laundered corporate drug cash flowing into the GOP as well through "Citizens United"

What has the U.S. done in Afghanistan?  It is simple.


We sent in special operations personnel, who joined with organized crime, a failed oil company hack, a group of burned  out former communists and set up a dictatorship while building a drug empire, staging terror attacks to blame on the Taliban.


We allowed India and Israel to run terror operations against our ally Pakistan and trucked thousands of tons of drugs into Russia. In the process, we made heroin so cheap any American child can afford addiction, one of mine did.


He is dead now.

As our military melted down, themselves drugged with anti-psychotics, trained to hate the local population, undisciplined, unlead, unqualified, it began.


Americans formed gangs, murdered civilians, raped, randomly killed local citizens in "drive by" shootings, killed any of their own who objected and it was all covered up except for a few "Soviet Type" show trials.

All information out of Afghanistan flows through the hands of gangsters and drug dealers and those under their influence.


If Hitler stood on the steps of the Capitol Building in 1945 with his boot on the neck of President Truman, we would never have lost a war so shamefully as we have in Afghanistan.


I never thought I could say this but Afghanistan makes Vietnam look like "the good war."



What has been done to our troops.

The responsibility lies here.



As for what war has done to America, other than filling jails with drug "victims," broken soldiers, ruining our economy it has also made every American fully complicit with much of our own government in worldwide organized crime.


Afghanistan is a "milk cow," producing the world's heroin supply, endless billions in drugs, which our "special operations community," you know, the ones you see on TV with their night vision and special training, the glamour boys of the military, every single one of them knows the truth, every word I have written.


Our information sources are throughout Pakistan and Afghanistan, on the ground, they are direct, they are accurate and as detailed as anyone could care for. We can cover incident by incident, tell you who really did it, who ordered it and who paid for it.


The vast majority of terror attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan are and have always been staged to justify the American presence there, a war on America by Americans using gangsters as surrogates, working hand in hand with corrupt spy agencies largely privatized during the Bush administration.

There is so much proof of this you could drown in it. U.S. military intelligence knows every word and were aware this was going to be written today. There were NO objections.





A Note on Training an Army


In 1968 and 1969 at the height of the Vietnam War, the United States Marine Corps maintained two training facilities, one at San Diego, MCRD, and one in South Carolina, Parris Island.


Each facility had one training Regiment with 48 training platoons each. There were a total of 96 platoons with 3 training NCO's each, called "drill instructors."  These units turned out the best trained soldiers in the world.


The entire United States Marine Corps was trained by 288 drill instructors in 8 week sessions who turned out about 8000 Marines. Three sessions, totaling 24 weeks, was adequate to supply the entire combat contingent that successfully held the northern half of Vietnam.


These units, which included as few as 9000 combat soldiers at one time (casualties and rotation), saw the majority of the combat during the Vietnam War.


When they left their areas of operation they had 100% control during the day and 65% control at night against an enemy that could conquer Afghanistan, Pakistan and probably India as well and have time for lunch.


During the Second World War, a similar force, abandoned with no fire support, food and little ammunition defeated half the military forces of Japan on the island of Guadalcanal.


In 1918, the 5th Marines, a much smaller unit, stopped the entire German army at Belleau Wood. I belonged to both of these units. For each unit, this was their first combat experience, all were "raw recruits."


We have been training the Army of Afghanistan and their police force using over 12,000 trainers for 11 years and have created a force that controls 10% of a nation when augmented with a massive U.S. force.


On their own, they hold 0% of Afghanistan.
