Funding the enemy

«We’re in this crazy situation where we are basically funding the enemy. We’ve given something like 20 billion dollars to Pakistan since 9/11 and they turn around and fund the Taliban who are fighting the United States and there’s just no end to this dynamic.»

More Evidence of the Use of Water Torture at Guantánamo and in Afghanistan and Iraq

Andy Worthington / Jeffrey Kaye: More Evidence of the Use of Water Torture at Guantánamo and in Afghanistan and Iraq

Four American soldiers came and took me into another room. It was not a tent. They put me on a slab (the size and shape of a bed) made of bricks.

Boiling Frogs Post: 9/11, Psychological Warfare & the American Narrative: Part II

Since 9/11 Americans have been bathed in psychological warfare on Islamic terrorism despite the fact that only a handful of incidents in the West can be attributed to radical Islamists. What is generally not appreciated by America’s leadership about this kind of prolonged use of propaganda on the American public is that it exposes the rationale for the longest war in American history in Afghanistan as flimsy and unconvincing and completely sidesteps the outright lies and deceptions used to justify the 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq.
