Nato forces mistakenly supplied food, water and arms to Taliban forces in southern Afghanistan, officials today admitted.

Containers destined for local police forces were dropped from a helicopter into a Taliban-controlled area of Zabul province.

The coalition helicopter had intended to deliver pallets of supplies to a police checkpoint in Ghazni, a remote section of Zabul late last month.

By mistake they were dropped some distance from the checkpoint where it was taken by the Taliban, the Internal Security Affairs Commission of the Wolesi Jirga — the Afghan parliament's lower house — was told.

Hamidullah Tukhi, a local politician from Zabul, told the parliamentary commission that the consignment had been taken by a local Taliban commander.

A Nato spokesman said the pallets were carrying rocket propelled grenades, ammunition, water and food.

Loverly... just fricking loverly.

Not only can we not defeat a rag tag band of tribal fanatics, we have to "accidently" supply them as well. Food would have been one thing, still not good, but one thing... but weapons as well.... OI VIE!!!

If secret societies really do rule the world.... I wish they would get their act together because up to now, they are doing a .... poor job of it. Case in point.

Perhaps they're engaged in a balancing act to prolong the war. If the "enemy" can't manage some semblance of a fight, they will provoke them to action and supply them materials to do it.


Gotta keep up the image of some great big scary boogeyman to justify expenditures fighting it.


This war is nothing but the military industrial complex creating a disease so they can sell the cure.
