For you, X-files Fan..
In the early nineties Bridas, an Argentinian company,discovered in Azerbayjan, Uzbekistan, Turkmanistan and Kazakstan huge deposits of oil and gas,
possibly the most important desposits for the 21st century.
They calculated that Turkmanistan will be in a position to export 5 million barrels a day, putting it in the worlds top producers.
Up until 1998 the UNOCAL group fought against Bridas to secure a contract with the talibans, but a contract for what?
Afghanistan will be the country where the pipeplines cross from the above countries, from the Caspian sea and then to Pakistan and from there to the
In the begining the talibans were backed by the US, even after continual accusations of human rights abuses.
Robin .L.Raphel, delegate for the government, south east asia, said of the taliban, "there original", and " we have nothing to object to about
them" said Glyn Davis spokesman for the south east asia office.
Unocal is a consortium of the worlds leaders in pertrolium production, with DELTA OIL, as one of the key players.
Strangley, in 1998 the owner of DELTA OIL was charged with connections to AL QAEDA, by the north american police.
His name is KHALID BIN MAFHOUZ, multi millionaire and brother in law of OSAMA BIN LADEN.
This was annouced publicy by the president of BRIDAS, after 9/11.
He assured the world "They wont let the FBI investigate about AL QAEDA, so they wont find out that between the big oil companys in the USA, the
REPUBLICANS, and high ranking business men of Texas there is a long love story".
With the international pressure mounting, and decisiones going in favor of BRIDAS, UNOCAL made a speech to the congress of the US in Febuary 1998,
urging the US to act "in the search of a stable government in Afghanistan that will allow the project of CENTAS and UNOCAL to be completed" i.e. the
laying of the pipelines.
From then on the attitude of the US towards the talibans changed drastically.
They accused their friend Bin Laden of the attacks on the US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya.
It was only then that Bin Laden became the FBI´s number one terrorist.
Then with the invasion came the defeat of the talibans whom the US had formerly helped and aided.
After the invasion the new president was HAMID kARZAI, who in the mid nineties became a major executive of the UNOCAL company, coincidence?
Weeks later the US name their embasador in Kabul, ZALMAY KHALILZAD, businessman, who was contracted before to establish contact with the talibans by
One year later Henry Kissinger was named as the man responsable to head the investigation into the failings of security in the aftermath of 9/11.
Days later, he resigned ? why ?
Because his business interests were in conflict with the job !!
In 1994 Kissinger had worked as an international representative of UNOCAL, coincidence ?
Kissinger was replaced by Thomas Kean. Kean, however, is the ex president of DELTA-HESS OIL, part of the CENTGAS consortium, which now belongs to
Saudi based DELTA OIL who owner is BIN MAFHOUZ, partner of GEORGE BUSH Jnr since the 70´s and brother in law of BIN LADEN.
On the 22nd December 2002 Hamid Karzai and the presidents of Turkmanistan and Pakistan signed an agreement to open the route for the oil pipes between
the two countries, all of which pass through AFHGHANISTAN. COINCIDENCE???
Now, X-FILES FAN, tell me that the war in Afghanistan was only about kicking out the nasty old kalashnikov lovin talibans..
