Fmr. National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski with Osama bin Laden, circa 1979.
Fmr. National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, known for his hardline policies on the Soviet Union, initiated in 1979 a campaign supporting mujaheddin (later renamed al Qaeda) in Pakistan and Afghanistan, which were run by Pakistani security services with financial support from the CIA and Britain’s MI6. This policy had the explicit aim of promoting radical Islamist and anti-Communist forces to overthrow the secular communist People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan government in Afghanistan, which had been destabilized by coup attempts against Hafizullah Amin, the power struggle within the Soviet-supported parcham faction of the PDPA and a subsequent Soviet military intervention.
Years later, in a 1997 CNN/National Security Archive interview, Brzezinski detailed the strategy taken by the Carter administration against the Soviets in 1979:
We immediately launched a twofold process when we heard that the Soviets had entered Afghanistan. The first involved direct reactions and sanctions focused on the Soviet Union, and both the State Department and the National Security Council prepared long lists of sanctions to be adopted, of steps to be taken to increase the international costs to the Soviet Union of their actions. And the second course of action led to my going to Pakistan a month or so after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, for the purpose of coordinating with the Pakistanis a joint response, the purpose of which would be to make the Soviets bleed for as much and as long as is possible; and we engaged in that effort in a collaborative sense with the Saudis, the Egyptians, the British, the Chinese, and we started providing weapons to the Mujaheddin, from various sources again—for example, some Soviet arms from the Egyptians and the Chinese. We even got Soviet arms from the Czechoslovak communist government, since it was obviously susceptible to material incentives; and at some point we started buying arms for the Mujaheddin from the Soviet army in Afghanistan, because that army was increasingly corrupt.
Milt Bearden wrote in The Main Enemy that Brzezinski, in 1980, secured an agreement from the Saudi king to match American contributions to the Afghan effort (of forming al Qaeda) dollar for dollar and that Bill Casey would keep that agreement going through the Reagan administration.
In 1998, Brzezinski was interviewed by the French newspaper Nouvel Observateur on the topic of Afghanistan. He revealed that CIA support for the mujaheddin had started before the 1979 Soviet invasion, knowingly increasing the probability of a Soviet invasion. Brzezinski saw the invasion as an opportunity to embroil the Soviet Union in a bloody conflict comparable to America’s experience in Vietnam. He referred to this as the “Afghan Trap” and viewed the end of the Soviet empire as worth the cost of strengthening militant Islamic groups.
He went on to say in that interview, “What is most important to the history of the world? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?” When the interviewer questioned him about Islamic fundamentalism representing a world menace, Brzezinski said, “Nonsense!”
In his 1997 book The Grand Chessboard, Brzezinski says that assistance to the Afghan resistance was a tactic designed to bog down the Soviet army while the United States built up a deterrent military force in the Persian Gulf to prevent Soviet political or military penetration farther south.
In the mid 1980 the US, wishing to increase its regional influence, worked with the Saudis to import an army of Saudis, Egyptians, and others into Afghanistan. The Saudis chose a member of a wealthy construction family with close royal family ties - Osama bin Laden - to lead the effort . Many of the men bin Laden recruited were connected to the Muslim Brotherhood, a regional fundamentalist group. bin Laden’s newly constructed army (shortly thereafter known as al Qaeda) successfully fought to settle Afghanistan in favor of an Afghan fundamentalist group, the Taliban. The US paid the Al Qaeda army to fight the US battles against all those who oppose the US plans for the region. With the formation of al Qaeda, with US money, the war on terror is the US war “of” terror. The US is using their own covert army to wage a fabricated threat of war against the US in order for the US government to implement US policy in the region. Public record prove that bin Laden was hand picked by Saudi Arabia and the US to form al Qaeda to orchestrate a fabricated war of terror against the US and the World.
Clinton uses US formed al Qaeda as excuse for attempted 1993 World Trade Center gold heist
February 26, 1993 at 12:17 PM - Clinton failed attempt to steal $millions with bombing of World trade Center. A Ryder truck filled with 1,500 pounds (680 kg) of explosives was planted and detonated in the underground garage of the North Tower, opening a 100 foot (30 m) hole through 5 sublevels of concrete leaving six people dead and 50,000 other workers and visitors gasping for air in the shafts of the 110 story towers. One of the world’s largest gold depositories was stored underneath the World Trade Center, owned by a group of commercial banks. The 1993 bomb was detonated next to the vault, but it withstood the explosion, as did the towers. $650 million in gold and silver was being kept in a special vault four floors beneath Four World Trade Center before 9/11. On Nov. 1, 2001 Mayor Rudolph Giuliani announced that “more than $230 million” worth of gold and silver bars that had been stored in a bomb-proof vault had been recovered. Where Clinton didn’t succeed Bush did because $millions are unaccounted for even after finding the vaults in tact after the US Air Force fuel tanker plane attack and controlled demolition of the World Trade Center Towers on September 11, 2001.
New York fiefighter walks through undamagaed gold vault holding over $1 billion. Vault withstood demolition of World Trade Center. Firefighters ordered out after this picture was taken.
An article in the Times Online gives the following rundown of precious metals that were being stored in the WTC vault belonging to Comex.
* Comex metals trading - 3,800 gold bars weighing 12 tonnes and worth more than $100 million
* Comex clients - 800,000 ounces of gold with a value of about $220 million
* Comex clients - 102 million ounces of silver, worth $430 million
* Bank of Nova Scotia - $200 million of gold
Motive for US attacking their own country on September 11, 2001
1995 Unocal, seeking to build a pipeline across Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan (for delivery to energy hungry Asia via the Pakistani Arabian Sea coast), signed an agreement with Turkmenistan for natural gas purchasing rights for transport through a proposed pipeline Unocal also signed an agreement with Turkmenistan for an oil pipeline along the same route.
Aug. 13, 1996 Unocal and Delta Oil Co. of Saudi Arabia signed a memorandum of understanding with Russia’s Gazprom and Turkmenistan’s Turkmenrusgaz to build a gas pipeline from Turkmenistan to Pakistan via Afghanistan.
October 1997 Unocal and other oil companies formed Central Asia Gas Pipeline, Ltd. (CentGas) in preparation for building the trans-Afghanistan pipeline.
1997 US Congress under clinton passed a resolution declaring the Caspian and Caucasus region to be a “zone of vital American interests”.
December 1997 Unocal invited Taliban representatives to their corporate headquarters in Sugarland, TX. to discuss the pipeline project. They were thereafter invited to Washington for meetings with Clinton Administration officials.
January 1998 Unocal agreement signed between Pakistan, Turkmenistan, and the Taliban to arrange funding of the gas pipeline project, with Unocal also considering a Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-Arabian Sea coast oil pipeline.
1998 VP Dick Cheney, then CEO of the giant oil services company, Halliburton, stated: “I cannot think of a time when we have had a region emerge as suddenly to become as strategically significant as the Caspian.”
Preparing for 9/11
February 28, 1998 Unocal VP International Relations addressed US House of Representatives clearly stating that the Taliban government should be removed and replaced by a government acceptable to his company. He argued that creation of a 42 inch oil pipeline across Afghanistan would yield a Western profit increase of 500% by 2015. http://www.ringnebul … ony_USHouse_1998.htm
August 7, 1998 US terrorism army in Afghanistan, al Qaeda, ordered to bomb two US embassies in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
August 20, 1998 Clinton ordered a 75-80 cruise missile attacks on Afghanistan and Sudan targets.
Nov. 1998 The Trade and Development Agency commissioned Enron to perform a feasibility study an east-to-west route, crossing the Caspian Mountains and terminating in Turkey along the Mediterranean. (The route was considered impractical as it would cost an estimated $1 billion more than a route through Afghanistan.)
December 1998 Unocal issued a statement that it had withdrawn from the pipeline project on 12/4/98, noting “business reasons.”
April 30, 1999 Excluding US interests, Afghanistan, Pakistan, & Turkmenistan reactivated the pipeline project.
July 4, 1999 An executive order (13129) was issued by Clinton, freezing US held Taliban assets, & prohibiting trade plus other transactions. Move was taken by Clinton because Taliban were negotiating pipeline deals directly with Pakistan and Turkmenistan without the US.
US starts using their al Qaeda army leader bin Laden as scapegoat for their planned 9/11 attacks
October 15, 1999 Under pressure from the Clinton administration UN Security Council Resolution 1267 imposed sanctions on the Taliban, demanding that the Taliban “turn over the terrorist Usama Bin Laden without further delay…”

George HW Bush, Bill Clinton and George W Bush connection
The 3 Stooges - Then 41st President George HW Bush worked with Saudi Arabia to form al Qaeda, former President Bill Clinton intimately worked with al Qaeda and the Taliban to negotiate building of pipeline then turned on them when Afghanistan wanted control over the pipeline, and lastly drunken coward and idiot George W Bush was dumb enough to order the attacks against his own country and blame it on US created al Qaeda.
