Taliban = 9/11?? Afghanistan by Hypnosis

by Greg Palast

On September 11, 2001, my office building, the World Trade Center, was attacked by al Qaeda, a murder cult of Saudi Arabians, funded by Saudi Arabians. And so, in response to the Saudis’ attack, America invaded … Afghanistan.

And here we go again. The New York Times (print edition) headline last Friday was: “Pakistani Army, In Its Campaign In Taliban Stronghold, Finds A Hint Of 9/11.”

Google it and you’ll find the Times report repeated and amplified 5,785 times more.

Taliban = 9/11. Taliban = 9/11. Taliban = 9/11.

Your eyelids are getting heavy. Taliban = 9/11. Taliban = 9/11.

It’s the latest hit from the same crew that brought you Saddam = 9/11 and its twin chant, Saddam = WMD, Dick Cheney’s chimerical tropes which the New York Times’ Judith Miller happily channeled to the paper’s front page.

And they’re at it again.

Every war begins with a lie.

Every war begins with a lie. In addition to Saddam = WMD, I’m old enough to remember the Gulf of Tonkin resolution authorizing the war in Vietnam, based on a fictional Vietnamese gunboat attack on our Navy. (White House recordings have Lyndon Johnson gloating privately, “Hell, those damn stupid [US] sailors were just shooting at flying fish.”)

In the Glorious War against the Taliban in Afghanistan, the lie is thus: al Qaeda is “based” in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. If we don’t fight the wily Taliban, as the British once fought the wily Pathan, al Qaeda will attack America again from Talibanistan.

The latest Taliban=9/11 fantasy is a yarn spun wildly outward from the finding of a passport of an al Qaeda flunky who worked with suicide pilot Mohammed Atta in the same mountain area where, years later, a Taliban group operated. It’s a stretch, but when you want to sell a war, it will do.

  1. Ft Hood was a false flag.

    Blackwater is rescuing Taliban forces caught by coalition troops.

    The swine vaccine shortage was created to get more people to buy into it.  Vaccine is likely a slow death bioweapon, five to ten years or so.

    IBM started pandemic planning in 2006.

    There are secret internet take down talks now going on.

    Watch for the volunter, serve your country media push during this “you gotta buy stuff” season.

    Pilots for 911 truth has a new video about magical 767s acheiving magical radar speeds physically impossible at sea level, that along with the weak steel and free fall speeds of 3 tower implosions do put us upon a flat earth.

  2. Obama when he announces more troops?

    there were no more Al Queda in Afghanistan.

    So they just started using the word “Taliban” instead of “Al Queda”.
