[THREAD] Ahmad Shah Massoud was assasinated on 9/9/01, by a group of Tunisians posing as Belgian-Moroccan reporters. Their bomb was hidden in a camera that the @FBI determined was stolen from France.

There’s never been a good answer for how he was murdered days before 9/11…
… one theory holds that the assassins were able to enter Northern Alliance territory under the auspices of warlord Abdul Rasul Sayyaf & had his help in bypassing "normal security procedures." Sayyaf was a key ally of Osama bin Laden (he’s who invited him to #Afghanistan)…
… so why does this matter today?

We’re now negotiating with the #Taliban (yes, really) for “peace.” But this “peace” will invite #China into #Afghanistan, won’t hold #Pakistan accountable for its duplicity in sheltering jihadis, & may limit #India’s beneficial presence there…
… and guess who @US4AfghanPeace Envoy Zalmay Khalizad recently met with?

None other than Abdul Rasul Sayyaf… the friend of Osama & the mastermind behind the assasination of Massoud. He’s now a politician of sorts.

I’ve got a bad feeling about this.
