Some breaking news here:



As the world geared up to remember the Sept. 11 terror attacks, a powerful Taliban truck bomb exploded at a U.S. military base in Afghanistan late Saturday, wounding 77 American soldiers and killing five Afghan civilians, including a three-year-old girl. The attack came shortly after the Taliban issued a statement vowing to send American forces "to the dustbin of history." In the statement, the Taliban also promised to keep fighting U.S. forces until all American troops leave Afghanistan, but they denied any involvement in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.
No American soldiers were killed in the attack, carried out by a suicide bomber who detonated a large bomb inside a truck carrying firewood. NATO reported Sunday that none of the 77 injuries is considered life-threatening.

Officials said no other international troops were stationed at the base, Combat Outpost Sayed Abad in Wardak province.

But the attack provided a vivid reminder that the decade-old Afghan war still rages. In an email to the media on Saturday, the Taliban accused the United States of using the Sept. 11 attacks as a pretext to invade Afghanistan and said the international community was responsible for killing thousands of Afghans during the invasion and occupation.

"Each year, 9/11 reminds the Afghans of an event in which they had no role whatsoever," the Taliban said in the email. "American colonialism has shed the blood of tens of thousands of miserable and innocent Afghans."

Rest of the article: www.ctv.ca...

Don't you find that all a bit weird? IIRC, the msm is always publishing articles in which the Taliban claim to have been behind the 9/11 attacks. Now all of a sudden, they publish an article where the Taliban denies involvement? What do you debunkers have to say about that? The people the U.S. government blames as behind the attacks is denying any involvement.

Just as people in Kansas City had nothing to do with the bombing, yes the man was a us citizen, but the people had no direct involvement.

If thats what they mean than yes, the citizens there had no part in it.

The Taliban had nothing to do what so ever with the 9/11/01 aircraft high-jackings.

None, Na-da, no involment with 9/11

Just like Sadam Hussain no involment with 9/11

The MSM at the direction of the US Government needs to place it in the minds of the Sheeple that the Taliban were involved so the US can continue genocide of the Afgan people.

Another tidbit of info some of you may not be aware of already:




On October 4, 2001, British Prime Minister Tony Blair released information compiled by Western intelligence agencies connecting Osama bin Laden to the Afghanistan's Taliban leadership as well as being the leader of the al-Qaeda organization. The Taliban government gave safe haven to Osama bin Laden in the years leading up to the attack, and his al-Qaeda network may have had a close relationship with the Taliban army and police[citation needed]. On the day of 9/11, the Taliban foreign minister told the Arab television network Al Jazeera: "We denounce this terrorist attack, whoever is behind it."

The United States requested the Taliban to shut down all al-Qaeda bases in Afghanistan, open them to inspection and turn over Osama bin Laden. The Taliban refused all these requests. Instead they offered to extradite Osama bin Laden to an Islamic country, for trial under Islamic law, if the United States presented evidence of his guilt. The Taliban had previously refused to extradite bin Laden to the United States, or prosecute him, after he was indicted by the US federal courts for involvement in the 1998 United States embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.

The Taliban deemed eyewitness testimony and satellite phone call recordings entered in the public record in February 2001 during a trial as insufficient grounds to extradite bin Laden for his involvement in the bombings. Invoking the Bush Doctrine, which stated "We will make no distinction between the terrorists and those who harbor them", the United States and Britain invaded and overthrew the Taliban regime in 2001, using air power, special forces and the Northern Alliance as a land army. On November 29, 2007 a videotape was released that The Central Intelligence Agency says is likely to be from Osama bin Laden. In it the speaker claims sole responsibility for the attacks and specifically denies any prior knowledge of them by The Taliban or the Afghan people.

This is the same as the police killing the family of a criminal because they let him stay in their house. Actually, its worse. Had the police given the family evidence that the man was a criminal, they would have turned him over.

The problem is that we're fighting the Taliban, not Al Qaeda. The Taliban is not at fault, yet we're killing them and the Afghan people anyways. So when the Taliban retaliates, its not the "work of Al Qaeda" like they love to say. Its the Taliban tired of all our senseless killing. As of 2001, the size of Al Qaeda was 500 - 1000 people. Since 2001, we've killed well over a million people. Think we might have gotten them all by now?

The people our government blamed for the attacks aren't the one's we're fighting. It would be like the Taliban claiming our Military committed a terror attack against them, and in retaliation, attacked our state side militias.

According to the official story the majority of thehijackers were Saudi Arabian. We invaded Afghanistan and Iraq in retaliation for 911, with a set of justifications that mostly proved untrue. Americans have a good reason to be sad and/or angry but really do not have have a valid reason to focus that anger at anyone specifically. We do have more than an inkling that the US government was complicit in some part of 911, perhaps at the very least for covering some of the facts or capitalizing on the event to further a war agenda.

There is more evidence of government involvement at some level than any we can point at any other group and be certain they were involved. We do know there was plenty of dis-information perpetrated by our own government. I do not believe there is anyone else we can point to with any degree of certainty to take responsibility for this.

Britain's Disastrous Retreat from Kabul...



The Taliban were the same individuals that fought for the US against the USSR for the same reason which was simply to get the invaders, who at the time were the Russians, out of their country.

People forget that the Crown of London has been after the wealth of Afghanistan for sometime now, first invading in the late 1830's and for all sense and purposes, the invading British were essentially wiped out.

The reason being is that the Crown has long depended upon the Opiates that grow in abundance there.
The Taliban had essentially eliminated the Opium Poppy amongst Afghan farmers.

Thus as to why they , the Taliban , are now the Bad guys and we are fighting them to occupy their country.

And not to forget our current Heroin epidemic here in the US and the world for that matter.
All courtesy of the abundance of cheap Opium originating in Afghanistan.....which has exploded only since the west has forcefully occupied the nation.

This narcotics trade has long since been the means of funding the MI6 and it's sibling, the CIA.
Also as to why drugs in general will continue to remain..."Illegal".

A force of extremist hate mongers created and funded by Pakistani Intelligence (The Taliban) gains control of Afghanistan and goes medieval on the population while the rest of the world isn't much interested.

The same numb nuts invite a disaffected Saudi Arabian (Bin Laden) and his Jihadi terror gang (Al Qaeda) to train in Afghanistan.

Saudi Arabians affiliated with Al Qaeda murder thousands in the US.

Taliban too dumb to immediately hand him over.

NATO kicks ass of Taliban. Installs US place-man in power. Bin Laden flees to pakistan. (Pakistani intelligence service does covert face-palm).

Saudi involvement ignored and continues to fund extremist Islam in the region and in pakistan.

USA declares victory, loses interest in Afghanistan and decides to settle Bush family grudge in IRAQ

Taliban re-forms and becomes strong insurgent force (covertly supported by Pakistan, who support the US with their other face).

Years of insurgency.....Pakistan plays both sides, Saudi still funds extremism, Iran finds it all hilarious.

I think the Taliban knows what the U.S. is up to. We are trying to install a puppet government to run the country. The military and msm claims the Taliban attacks their "own people". No, the Taliban is attacking the puppet police and government that the U.S. They view them as traitors, which they are in a way. The U.S. will never achieve peace in Afghanistan as long as they occupy it. The Russians failed to do so, and in 10 years of war, so have we.

Yes. Osama Bin Laden was blamed for the attack by MSM & White House just 3 minutes after it happened on 9/11 morning, which supports pre-orchestration.

Bin Laden immediately, surprisingly issued statement he nor Taliban were responsible for 9/11. This was suppressed from the media and then they issued old/fake videos showing he was an extremists, for implication. The MSM even told the public he and Taliban and al-Ciada did admit it to it.

anyway, lets remember both Osama and the Taliban/Opium industry are still on the US al-CIAda payroll!

and Osama's innocence from 9/11 is why he was 'buried at sea' without trial or even questioning/statements.

It's great when we can just throw inflammatory numbers around without any proof...or common sense in this case. I have searched high and low and cannot come up with an estimate of civilian deaths that comes anywhere near "over a million people". Maybe the number in Afghanistan is closer to 20,000...maybe.

www.abc.net.au...

And interestingly...the Taliban is responsible for the lion's share of these deaths...


Insurgents were linked to 75 per cent of civilian deaths and 16 per cent were attributed to foreign and government forces, according to the annual report released with the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission.


As they were responsible for thousands of civilian deaths prior to invasion.

Stop glamorizing these mass murderers as some kind of liberating champions of the Afghan people.

The Taliban harboured and sheltered Al Qaeda. They were given a deadline to hand over Bin Laden.. They did not. They were ousted.

Al Qaeda was routed in the process and driven out of Afghansitan. Coalition combat forces would likely be long gone by now, if not for the Taliban's on-going campaign of murder and mayhem.

The only reason the Taliban is still around is because of Coalition rules of engagement that prevent us from going all out to destroy them - because doing so would cause additional civilian casualties!

We do all that we can to protect civilian lives...the Taliban goes out of their way to inflict civilian deaths.

Your argument is totally upside down and backwards.

Or maybe, its because the Taliban know how to fight?

Civilian casualties? Oh, thats happened a lot from the beginning of the war... they all just get written off as "collateral damage". No biggie.

Nobody ever accused Afghanis (or people in the region known as Afghanistan, seen as many people there dont consider themselves to be citizens of Afghanistan) of the attacks of 911. The reason to invade Afghanistan mainly was Osama iz there (and al Quaeda).

I doubt the Afghanis would be free under Taliban rule by any measure either.

As far as I am aware no-one has ever accused The Taliban of being involved in the 9/11 attacks.

I thought that the official story is that Bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda 'network' were responsible.

The Taliban were however allowing Al-Qaeda to operate training camps in areas they controlled and were providing a safe haven for Bin Laden and a lot of his supporters etc.

Now I don't really want to get into any discussion about the accuracy of this but please correct me if I'm wrong but I'm sure that is the 'official' story.....so why are The Taliban repudiating something no-one has accused them of?

Predictable political rhetoric and completely irrelevant.
