Taliban Still Working for the CIA?

November 6, 2009

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

As President Obama
ponders whether to send more troops to Afghanistan, there is mounting evidence the Taliban is supported by the CIA. If correct, the Afghan war is a charade with a hidden agenda.

First, we have many reports that unmarked helicopters are ferrying the Taliban to targets, and relieving them when cornered.

"Just when the police and army managed to surround the Taliban in a village of Qala-e-Zaal district, we saw helicopters land with support teams," an Afghan soldier said. "They managed to rescue their friends from our encirclement, and even to inflict defeat on the Afghan National Army."

This story, in one form or another, is being repeated throughout northern Afghanistan. Dozens of people claim to have seen Taliban fighters disembark from foreign helicopters in several provinces.

"I saw the helicopters with my own eyes," said Sayed Rafiq from Baghlan-e-Markazi.
"They landed near the foothills and offloaded dozens of Taliban with turbans, and wrapped in patus (a blanket-type shawl)."

"Our fight against the Taliban is nonsense," said the first soldier. "Our foreigner 'friends' are friendlier to the opposition."


Last February, there were reports of CIA airbases within Pakistan used for drones. If this is true, Pakistanis are being attacked by drones based in their own country.  Obviously, the Taliban helicopters could also come from these CIA bases.

In May, Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, told NBC News that the CIA and the (U.S.-Funded) Pakistani ISI intelligence service "has created the Taliban."

Zardari said that the CIA and the ISI are still supporting the Taliban.

On Oct 29, 2009, Hillary Clinton infuriated Pakistani officials by saying she found it "hard to believe" the ISI didn't know where Al Qaeda leaders were hiding. Her role is to maintain the fiction that Al Qaeda and the Taliban are not CIA creations.

Just the day before, (Oct. 18) four American citizens were caught photographing sensitive buildings in Islamabad. All four were dressed in traditional Afghan outfits and were found to be in possession of illegal weapons and explosives.

Their vehicles contained 2 M-16A1 rifles, 2 handguns and 2 hand-grenades. The police held the American citizens in custody for an hour before the Interior Ministry interfered and had them released without charge even as preliminary investigation was being carried out.

The CIA could be involved in the recent "Taliban" attacks on Pakistani institutions.  Who knows? In some cases, the Afghan "Taliban" could be CIA mercenaries.

In Feb. 2008, the British were caught planning a training camp for the Taliban in Southern Afghanistan supposedly to make them "change sides."  Karzai expelled two top British "diplomats." 


All wars are charades. This is true of the world wars, the Cold War, Korea, Vietnam, 9-11 and the current war on terror. The human race is caught in a hologram controlled by the Illuminati Rothschild central bankers.

Wars are necessary to divide, distract and dehumanize us. Otherwise, we might focus on the  small network of Masonic families, based in London, who control  government credit. Therefore, the central banking cartel uses pawns like Bush and Obama, and intelligence agencies like the CIA, Mossad, MI-6 and ISI to foment war. They finance these wars by issuing debt repayable to them by the taxpayer.

As I have said, the ultimate goal is to translate their monopoly over government credit into a worldwide monopoly over power, wealth and culture; in other words, to disinherit and enslave the human race. This is called world government.

I'm not an expert on the politics of the Asian subcontinent. But it appears that the Afghanistan war should be seen in a larger regional context. Zbigniew Brzezinski advocated a "global-zone of percolating violence," that included Central Asia, Turkey,  southern Russia, and the western borders of China. It also included the entire Middle East, the Persian Gulf (Iran), Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The plan to destabilize this vast area was outlined in Brzezinski's book, "The Grand Chessboard" (1997) . Ostensibly, the purpose was to prevent Russia from becoming an imperial power again. But that doesn't make sense.

What do these countries have in common?  They are Muslim. Islam is the last redoubt of faith in God. The Illuminati are Satanists. Put two and two together.

The Afghan war has some immediate "benefits" to the bankers: perpetual war, arms spending, drugs, pipelines etc. But it is part of a larger "war of civilizations" designed to degrade and destroy Islam. Look for it to expand and go on forever.

US Army Pays Taliban for Security

On a related note, citing current and former U.S. officials, The New York Times reported Oct. 28, 2009 that the brother of Afghan President Hamid Karzai has been getting regular payments from the Central Intelligence Agency.

 "Ahmed Wali Karzai is a suspected player in Afghanistan's opium trade and has been paid by the CIA over the past eight years for services that included helping to recruit an Afghan paramilitary force that operates at the CIA's direction in and around the southern city of Kandahar," the newspaper reported.

Afghanistan War-History

Lest we forget --

At the request of the Pakistani government, the US secretly allows rescue flights into the besieged Taliban stronghold of Kunduz, in Northern Afghanistan, to save Pakistanis fighting for the Taliban (and against US forces) and bring them back to Pakistan. Pakistan's President "Musharraf won American support for the airlift by warning that the humiliation of losing hundreds--and perhaps thousands--of Pakistani Army men and intelligence operatives would jeopardize his political survival." [New Yorker, 1/21/2002] Dozens of senior Pakistani military officers, including two generals, are flown out. [NOW with Bill Moyers, 2/21/2003] In addition, it is reported that the Pakistani government assists 50 trucks filled with foreign fighters to escape the town. [New York Times, 11/24/2001] Many news articles at the time suggest an airlift is occurring. [Independent, 11/16/2001; New York Times, 11/24/2001; BBC, 11/26/2001; Independent, 11/26/2001; Guardian, 11/27/2001; MSNBC, 11/29/2001] Significant media coverage fails to develop, however. The US and Pakistani governments deny the existence of the airlift. [US Department of State, 11/16/2001; New Yorker, 1/21/2002] On December 2, when asked to assure that the US did not allow such an airlift, Rumsfeld says, "Oh, you can be certain of that. We have not seen a single--to my knowledge, we have not seen a single airplane or helicopter go into Afghanistan in recent days or weeks and extract people and take them out of Afghanistan to any country, let alone Pakistan." [MSNBC, 4/13/2003] Reporter Seymour Hersh believes that Rumsfeld must have given approval for the airlift. [NOW with Bill Moyers, 2/21/2003] However, The New Yorker magazine reports, "What was supposed to be a limited evacuation apparently slipped out of control and, as an unintended consequence, an unknown number of Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters managed to join in the exodus." A CIA analyst says, "Many of the people they spirited away were in the Taliban leadership" who Pakistan wanted for future political negotiations. US intelligence was "supposed to have access to them, but it didn't happen," he says. According to Indian intelligence, airlifts grow particularly intense in the last three days before the city falls on November 25. Of the 8,000 remaining al-Qaeda, Pakistani, and Taliban, about 5,000 are airlifted out and 3,000 surrender. [New Yorker, 1/21/2002] Hersh later claims that "maybe even some of bin Laden's immediate family were flown out on those evacuations." [NOW with Bill Moyers, 2/21/2003]

Scruples - the game of moral dillemas

Comments for "Taliban Still Working for the CIA?"

David said (November 16, 2009):

n light of your recent article, I was wondering if you had seen this? Sibel Edmonds come up with some more astounding testimony. It's also very enlightening the way she explains the whole thing. I had no idea at any time what a role Turkey played in all this, until I read her latest.

But this is what Brzezinski and Bernard Lewis had been intending all along, was igniting Islamic "fundamentalism". Creating and educating the Taliban seems to have been a long-standing part of this project.

It's all very Weishauptian, that they recognized they couldn't change the older generations, so they created a new one. The "madrassas" were all linked to the "Deobandi" school, which has of all the "revivalist" movements in the last few centuries, has been the one most closely linked with the Wahhabi heresy of Saudi Arabia.

The more I look at the Taliban, and realize what they did, the more I realize what an utter absurdity and grotesque caricature of Islam they are. It's totally ridiculous. But that can only be accomplished by Wahhabism, which is fundamentally a rejection of traditional Islam. By not referring to past precedent, they can invent Islam into whatever they want, and brainwash legions of ignorant shepherd boys into their radical nonsense.

Oliver said (November 10, 2009):

a quick note. In a brief waiting time during (construction-type) work here in Germany, I talked to a man who said that he had worked for the US military as a helicopter pilot (although he didn´t have a US accent). His words went closely like this: "We trained the Taliban. They had to do the dirty work for us. They skinned the Russians and laid them into the sun. When I was sent to Nicaragua I quit. I´m not a total idiot." He said that in an environment where people didn´t know about these things, and would have probably respond in disbelief. I would have asked more questions, but we had to proceed.

Dan said (November 9, 2009):

Salman's partially right. He's right that the bulk of men that joined the original Taliban (that fought the Russians) were devout Muslims motivated to expel foreign aggressors and act as vigilantes against criminals and collaborators.
Here's what an Afghani man I knew in Santa Fe recounted to me in 2002. During the early 1980's when the Russians invaded, he had joined the Taliban as a patriot. It was rather like the French or Greek Resistance groups of WWII. This man was in his 50's when I met him. He was a distinguished fellow from a line of leaders in the traditional Afghani culture. As such he was instilled that it was his duty to serve God to preserve and protect the culture from invaders and traitors.
For several years he lived in the rugged mountains ambushing Russian truck convoys. When the Russians withdrew, he was enthusiastic to return home but he got word from friend in his village that people were waiting to kill him when he came back. They'd learned that the Taliban was controlled by CIA, and other bands of Taliban were dong bad things. He, and none of the volunteers he'd fought with had a clue while they'd been engaged hunting Russians in the mountains. He said he had no choice but to flee to Pakistan and request political asylum in the United States. He can never go home again, and he was intensly bitter about that.

And none of the above even touches on the opium/heroin department of the scheme. That dates back even further to the 18th century British East India Company opium trade. 19th century American symbiosis in the opium trade isn't hidden at all - it's just left out of the curriculum in our schools.
And right in the middle of the history of opium and later, morphine and heroin, is Afghanistan. 90% of the world supply of opium is Afghani. that's why the US is there and why the Brits are still calling the shots for all .

It's been well over twenty years since everybody in the US had been informed of the Iran/Contra/P2 Lodge/Vatican Bank network. What part of the reality can't people ever seem to understand? Such news stories that broke during the 80's only explained and confirmed things I'd heard 'on the street' during the seventies. All the above scandals were somehow swept under the rug by 1994 - till serious reporter named Gary Web opened it all up again in 1996 with incontrovertible evidence that the top crack distributer in the United States (Ricky Ross) was supplied and protected by CIA. (As you know Web 'suicided' in 2006 with two 'self-inflicted' shots to the head).

Gary Webb, Ricky Ross

I can't understand why generation after generation in this country can't get it -- war is a racket.

Salman said (November 8, 2009):

Henry, you made some astounding assertions. But the truth is more complex than what you know.
First of all, the original Taliban (the ones pre-911) were "Puritan" Muslims, who brought peace, stability, and order to the region. The ORIGINAL Taliban are better people, and while not perfect - at least stopped criminal activities, banditry, gang rapes of women, and their harshness and enforcing of private behaviour in people's lives made others turn away from them. Their mistreatment of the Hazaras as revenge for the back-stabbing massacre of Taliban soldiers the year before (1997) led to the revenge attack on Hazara soldiers in 1998. They were the best that Afghanistan had to offer after years of war and civil war.

Now, we have in recent years, the neo-Taliban. The ones in Pakistan are a bunch of anarchists created by the Mossad/CIA. As to one of the men shot and killed by the MI5 on the London Tubes (Mohammed Siddique Khan), he was sent weapons by the MI5 to traffick into Afghan/Pakistan border in order to arm the Resistance. He was an MI5 agent.

while I know for a fact that the current Beitullah Mahsud was a criminal who established ties with the Mossad. Most of the terrorism in the world is done by a special secretive branch of the Israeli army apparatus called the Diamond Unit (Sayeret Yahalom). These people just go in and blow people up. That's their job. And they are secetive about it. When they are to go into another country, they often wear the labels of other Western intelligence agencies and mercenaries. Blackwater is not blowing up trucks in Pakistan.

It is the Jewish terror units under the Blackwater label. Same thing goes for terror ops in Iraq. The supposed SAS in Basra were not British agents, they were Jewish terrorists. And US army personel posing as Arabs trying to blow cars up tend to be Jews and/or Israelis. For the most part, the ONLY terrorists in the world to blow up civilian targets be they in market places, malls, subways, mosques, churches, synagogues, and other places OFTEN TEND to be Jewish psychopaths. Especially if they dress up as Arabs/Muslims.

Iraqis are telling us that OVER 20 THOUSAND ISRAELI COMMANDOS entered Iraq after the invasion in 2003. Where do you think these scum left after Iraq? They penetrated Pakistan, Iran, India, and Afghanistan.

There are still many original dedicated Taliban fighters left in Afghanistan. However, the reason why they are getting assistance has to do with the fact that the Jews who started the war want to basically prolong the war and profiteer off it for as long as they possibly can. Have you watched Lord of War about the Jewish gangster Victor Bout? The Jews know that Afghanistan can't be contained and that they are going to lose the war either ways, so what better way to handle the situation than infiltrate the resistance and subvert the original agenda of driving out the invaders into something else?

Jim said (November 8, 2009):

Most members of Congress and Senate have inside tips to investments, based upon war, that earn these greedy pigs extra money. It is no coincidence that Afghanistan (like Vietman) is the world's major producer of Heroin, besides being a natural gas and oil pipeline. Military contracts to firms like Boeing, BAE, Northrop Grumman, etc... are in the billions of dollars.

As Ron Paul would say, just bring all troops home from around the world, put half of them on the US borders with Mexico and Canada, and you save the US middle class over one trillion dollars per year and suddenly create millions of jobs. This benefit to the middle class will not happen until there is a complete turnover of DC. This will require revolution, which will be Libertarian based and led by white people.

Without this revolution, the US is doomed to fight wars until the end, which will not be far off. The unemployment rate is already ~20%, and almost half of the population is on subsidies, so after the hyper inflation kicks in, the US will resemble Wiemar Germany. The appearance of a real Hitler type in the US is not out of the question as white people do not historically play second fiddle.

David said (November 8, 2009):

It is time that you simply tell your readers to CURSE the evil that is besieging our world, to their destruction. You have given us enough evidence. Curses do work. They, of course, wish that we light the candle and NOT curse the darkness. But, it is in cursing the darkness that success will be reaped!

Luther said (November 8, 2009):

You are so right about the Taliban being in league with the CIA, and the reason is opium poppies. Earlier this week it was disclosed that the newly re-elected president of Afghanistan's brother has been on the CIA payroll for a least eight years. The main reason for this arrangement is he is to protect the poppy fields that are used to make opium. This is the country's only growing industry (no pun intended), and soldiers are constantly told not to damage these fields in any way. These crops are the CIA's main means of existence according to WHITEOUT: the CIA, Drugs and The Press 1999 by Alexander Cockburn and Jeffry Sinclair.

Another thing about Al Qaeda, is it not also interesting that when the military forces are close to capturing a couple of these guys, they seem to get away at the last possible moment. Once again I am reminded of the book 1984 by George Orwell. The main character Winston Smith says the Ministry of Information reports (propaganda, and he works for the MI) state, "...we have always been at war and will always be at war!" Then the job of the ministry is to rewrite history and change the facts so no one catches on to the lies being spread to keep the war going. One day it is this "We are at war with East Asian and Eurasia are our allies!" Then the next day it is "We are at war with Eurasia and East Asia are our allies!" Another trend I have noticed is that the news reports say one of these slick international terrorists has been killed during a mounted assault and bombing raid. The next thing they do is resurrect him so they can kill him again!
David Icke, Alex Jones and Jeff Rense have all pointed out these instances on their sites with regularity.

The Ministry of Information also diminishes the language so that people are encouraged to believe Newspeak and Doublethink (example: War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery etc.) so they can always be favoured by Big Brother. Be a good automaton, and you will be rewarded... When I hear many of these reports I want to suggest that the average citizen read 1984 and A CLOCKWORK ORANGE every year to follow the news reports, rather how we are being misled by the media. They write what they are told to and we are expected to believe it without question. I'd like to hear more about this freedom we are supposed to be enjoying...

Thanks for all your research and reports since I quite enjoyed "The Original Crypto Jews". I hope there will eventually be one on how the Afrikan community in America is harder on itself than any other community when it comes to stealing from and exploiting its capabilities instead of moving ahead.

Carl said (November 8, 2009):

This is almost certainly the case. I would return to the early days after the invasion of Iraq when Bush declared hostilities over. Then the car bombs started, of course, the big give away was "craters" bombs don`t make craters, they even showed an explosion from distance, clearly this was CGI. These early so called car bombs, were in my estimation, weapons fired from distant gunships.

This thing about IED`s is another none starter. You can jam remote IED`s, so you need it hard wired. I just don`t believe they are wandering around with ready built IED`s , long rolls of wire, shovel and pick-axe, just to kill a few soldiers at a time. You`ll note, its usually one vehicle that gets they only send one out at a time? I doubt it, so Mr Taliban is a few hundred metres away, why not use RPG`s and take all the vehicles out?

In Basra British SAS were caught with explosives and remote detonators and two US military, also dressed as Arabs, were caught parking a car bomb in Baghdad.

This control of both sides isn`t just in the military. I happen to believe that many serious traffic accidents are triggered/setup by the state. The idea that people can get through a whole week of work, then on a Friday afternoon, be looking forward to a nice weekend, just is not allowed.

We can`t just think of NWO control being limited to work and MSM, we spend a lot of time driving. Ruining a few hundred thousand drivers day with manipulated accidents is a great way to induce stress. I don`t know how they are doing this, but it is likely to be some sort of electromagnetic mind control system...I keep an eye on the traffic, you would expect to have average weeks, bad weeks, but we NEVER get that freakish week were nothing big happens, its always a steady pitch with troughs. Off topic, but still relevant to understanding our warped world.

Don said (November 8, 2009):

Dear Dr Makow because I am a little paranoid after reading your books one reason I fear we are in Afghanistan besides surrounding Iran may be to put troops who will not fire on who will not fire on Americans. With the economy driving people to join the military with the lowered standards of even having a criminal records for Obama to build his internal Army for Martial Law. The majority of those serving in Iraq and Afghanistan are white and joined the Army Reserves to get an education with the incentives that were offered since Reagan in a volunteer Army. My nephew is in Special Forces in Afganistan at this moment. Blackwater has offered him all most a million to work for them when his enlistment is up. It seems that the only profitable thing the US can do is to fight wars to keep the bankers and oil companies rich. I do however believe that Iran is a threat to Israel and has to be dealt with in the end by force. I do support Israel even though I disagree with their policies which I fear will lead to self destruction and they cannot see as you do they are being used by this Masonry cabal.

Asim said (November 8, 2009):

ou put it so aptly in your latest article concerning the war in Afghanistan. Ultimately the end goal is to obliterate Islam as the last remaining barrier to the Masonic One World Government..According to Islamic prophecies relating to the sayings of the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh), an army will rise in the end days amidst the chaos of war in a region called Khorason, and they will be made up of the most devout and righteous muslims. They will march through all the way to Israel and liberate Palestine and surrounding areas, and no one will be able to stop them. Khorason is a region in Afghanistan, populated by the Pashtuns, who are devout muslims and who make up the bulk of the Taliban. What is very interesting here is that according to Wikepedia and other sources, the Pashtuns are actually descendants of the lost 12 tribes of Isreal!!!! That's right, they're ancestry is JEWISH! Furthermore, they will restore Masonic Isreal to how it was during the time of Prophet Moses, then known as Bani Israel, only to then be confronted by Al Masih Ad Dajjal-the Anti Christ, who will make himself publicly known from of all places, IRAN!!! We are living in interesting times indeed.
