Dying for Nothing In Afghanistan

By Phil Giraldi

The tragic deaths of seven CIA officers in Afghanistan has produced some very confusing press commentary.  Initial reports suggested that the officers based in Khost were clandestine service officers out recruiting informants under very dangerous circumstances.  That is almost certainly not so as the Agency generally has protocols in place in both Iraq and Afghanistan that forbid working outside of bases without extensive security measures.  These protocols have inhibited the ability to run operations where there is any risk but they are also responsible for the extremely low number of deaths of CIA personnel since 2001. 

The Khost base was a drone site managed by the CIA’s paramilitary group, the Special Activities Division, which is distinct from its spies.  It operates pretty much like special ops soldiers.  The drones rely on information to target the Taliban, information that is frequently provided by locals who are doing it for money or, sometimes, for revenge or other personal reasons.  Sometimes they are deliberately providing false information, which is partly why so many of the drone strikes kill civilians.   The CIA paramilitary officers in a drone base would have neither the language skills nor training to go out into the countryside looking for informants so the informants would come to them.  The informants would normally be subjected to intensive security screening by Afghan guards and then by American staff before they would be allowed into a secure area.  Clearly in this case, the security screening broke down or was evaded.  Two of the CIA staffers killed left behind families including six children back in Virginia. 

I guess I could say that it’s a real tragedy to die for nothing, which is what I believe in the case of Afghanistan, but we should honor the Americans who go out every day and place themselves in danger in the belief that they are doing so to defend our nation and way of life.  The real tragedy here is that our country’s leaders, who are completely divorced from the suffering and pain of real Americans and their families caused by the continuous warfare since 9/11, do not have the courage to pull the plug on the entire bogus enterprise of interventionism and nation building.  Changing a Bush for an Obama has been a feckless exercise, replacing one leader addicted to war with another.  Only Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich and a few others see clearly what must be done to change the narrative.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
