I distinctly remember, on the afternoon of 9/11, seeing reports on CNN about unknown attacks in Afganistan.

I remember a correspondant looking out across a night-time cityscape. He said that there had been a series of large explosions, probably cruise missiles, but it was unknown what country had fired them.

In retrospect, I can't seem to find out anything about these attacks... nevermind who was responsible, I can't even find anything about them *happening*.

Can anyone shed some light on this? Am I completely looking in the wrong places?

I think you are on the right trail.

I remember seeing a bit about the taliban blowing up some buddhist statues just before 9/11.

The jeudeo-christian-muslim belief complex protecting it's interests I suspect.

Here you go...

There were explosions in Kabul, Afghanistan on 9/11 in retaliation for an attempted assassination of the Northern Alliance leader Ahmad Shah Massoud a few days prior.

And then here is an article on the Taliban's destruction of the Buddhist statues which took place in March of 2001.

Aha... thank you Valhall. The rebel attack was exactly what I remember.

I'm surprised that conspiracies don't fly around, suggesting that the US pushed the rebels into attacking... especially considering some of the claims that the invasion of Afganistan was premeditated.

You might just be right about that.


KABUL, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Explosions have rocked the capital city of Kabul, hours after terrorist attacks targeted financial and military centers in the United States.

A rebel group fighting against Afghanistan's ruling Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

At a news conference in Kabul hours after the attacks on the United States, Afghanistan's Foreign Minister Wakeel Ahmed Mutawakkel said, the Afghan government had taken away bin Laden's communication devices "and he has not been in touch with anyone outside Afghanistan."

Is there any actual evidence to back up the assertion?

Probably about the same amount of evidence that exists to link the masons to 9/11

So, nothing?

Usually that doesn't stop folks from trying.

I wonder if the rebels were trying to curry favor with the US, if the US didn't egg them on.

And furthermore, if they WERE trying to curry favor with the US, would you say it worked?

I haven't heard anything about these rebels, since then? Did we effectively meet their need by invading and occupying Afganistan? By tossing out the Taliban?

Actually they've made most of the ground fighting on the way to Kabul.
