An excerpt from, "Al Qaeda Terrorists Pass US Special Forces, CIA Agents on Way to Syria" by Tony Cartalucci, Land Destroyer Report, November 1, 2013:
Yet despite all of this, Turkey, a NATO member since the early 1950's, appears to be guilty of the very crime Afghanistan was allegedly invaded and to this day still occupied for, harboring Al Qaeda terrorists. An army of Al Qaeda is (and has been for nearly 3 years) using southern Turkey as a safe-haven and staging ground for the invasion of Syria - disingenuously portrayed by the Western media as a "civil war."Flashback: An excerpt from, "Many Afghans Shrug at 'This Event Foreigners Call 9/11'" by Yaroslav Trofimov, The Wall Street Journal, September 8, 2011:
Worst of all, these terrorists, literally carrying Al Qaeda's banner into battle, are passing CIA outposts, US, British, and French special operations training camps, and through Western-funded refugee camps, on their way to commit a wide array of atrocities along and within Syria's borders.
The Sept. 11 attacks that triggered the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan also uprooted 16-year-old Abdul Ghattar from his village in war-torn Helmand province, bringing him to a desolate refugee camp on the edge of Kabul.Conclusion: America took advantage of the weak, ignorant, and vulnerable by invading Afghanistan on the false pretense that its people and government were sheltering the terrorists who did 9/11. The governments of America, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, England, France, and Turkey had more to do with 9/11 and the emergence of al-Qaeda as a potent ideological force on the planet than innocent villagers in Afghanistan.
Yet Mr. Ghattar stared blankly when asked whether he knew about al Qaeda's strike on the U.S., launched a decade ago from Afghan soil.
"Never heard of it," he shrugged as he lined up for water at the camp's well, which serves thousands of fellow refugees. "I have no idea why the Americans are in my country."
The 9/11 attacks were not "launched from Afghan soil." That is criminal baloney. They were launched from American soil, from Israeli soil, from Saudi soil, from Pakistani soil, from Turkish soil, from French soil, and from British soil. That is the truth of the matter.
