When the US invaded Afghanistan, the first CIA team landed with $10 million in cash in Panjshir Valley on Sept 26, 2001. The cash was handed out by Gary Schroen in bundles “like candy on Halloween” to the likes of @AmrullahSaleh2. CIA established a joint intelligence cell with...
with the Northern Alliance. As Schroen's lackey, @AmrullahSaleh2 assisted while US dropped 12000 bombs; killing 10000 Afghans in that autumn. 40% of the dropped bombs were dumb and misguided.

Steve Coll writes in “Directorate S” that while Kabul was burning with charred bodies,
Amrullah Saleh and others in the Northern Alliance were still not satisfied:
‘This is all the US air force can do?’

Infact @AmrullahSaleh2 is nothing more than a Rolex wearing CIA asset.

Ajit Doval, India's National Security Advisor, is running five 5 ISIS trainings camps in IIOJK, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand with an aim to justify war crimes in Kashmir within the garb of counter...
terrorism operations. Here it's pertinent to mention the finding of

#NeverForget that Afghan Taliban were not involved in the #September11 attack. 9/11 Commission Report by the US govt has a section entitled ‘Dissent within the al-Qaeda leadership’ where it's mentioned that Mullah Mohammed Omar categorically opposed attacks against the US.

The Taliban govt led by Mullah Omar was one of the first to condemn the #September11 attack. They denied involvement, demanded proof and an independent court to assess claims on OBL involvement. But President Bush was intransigent and launched Operation Jawbreaker.

After the #September11 attack, more than 335,000 civilians have been killed in America’s War on Terror; more than one hundred times the number of civilian deaths in 9/11. Around 7000 US service members have died. The estimated cost of the US War on Terror is $6.4 trillion..
