Woody Harrelson: Chevron Behind Afghanistan War

In an interview published November 11 at Salon.com, titled, "Woody Harrelson on war, death, LBJ and Obama," by Andrew O'Hehir, actor Woody Harrelson, who stars in the new film, The Messenger, recounts his conspiracy theory that America invaded Afghanistan not because of the 9/11 attacks, but because Chevron wanted to overthrow the Taliban and build an oil pipeline.

Harrelson: The guys from Chevron went in and met with the Taliban and realized those guys just weren't in control enough. That's why they wanted to oust them. Otherwise it's an absurd concept: You're going to war because a guy from some other country, a Saudi, is living somewhere in the mountains?

The following is an excerpt

The following is an excerpt from Part Two of a two part series:

Bush administration and Taliban officials met several times in Washington, Berlin and Islamabad. Each time, the Taliban refused Bush's conditions.

The last meeting took place in August 2001. Central Asian affairs representative Christina Rocca and a coterie of State Department officials voiced disgust and issued a threat to the Taliban ambassador:
"Accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs." Bush promptly informed Pakistan and India that the US would launch a military mission against Afghanistan before the end of October.

Weeks later, under questionable circumstances, jetliners would crash into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania, killing some 2,000 Americans. The ensuing war on Afghanistan, and the "war on terrorism," would claim the lives of more than 5,000 Afghans, scatter (but not destroy) the Taliban and send Osama bin Laden and his Al-Queda network into hiding.

Bush's brutal "carpet of bombs" had done what years of Clinton administration jockeying had failed to do: topple a recalcitrant, uncooperative regime with nationalistic tendencies, and clear the key square of the Chessboard.

I like it

If you could find out the major stock holders of Chevron, I bet there would be some familiar names.

Woody

is an A$$.

Spicy and nice to hear from Woody.

Woody is into raw food lifestyle, too.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

The soldiers have figured this out

and it's probably the reason there is a revolt brewing in the ranks.

I recall reading a few

I recall reading a few articles where soldiers mention that they don't know why they are there and what they are fighting for in Afghanistan. But I don't remember anything about an actual revolt. I suppose it's possible, though. Not even WWII took this long to win, so it's surely weighing heavily on all the soldiers who are over there and who have been over there.

...

i think

thats why the revolt is forming. They realize there is no "winning". My friends from school who went, say all they are there for is to protect the oil and poppy fields. Some just realize they are puppets and do as least amount of damage and stay under the radar until they are done. The others refuse reality, and use gun ho patriotism as a crutch and cannot think rationally.

as soon as you state that we are staying in afghanistan for

the gas pipeline, you have to talk about the 5 military bases that are located on it's proposed route.

Facts always carry more weight. Dr.Paul uses 'em all the time-

Yes

a friend of a friend who I had a lot of beers with was a Marine in Afghanistan. He said they took orders from Haliburton on base. They did not go fight Al-Queda, they were protecting a pipeline. He had no reason to lie, and he was definitely in the Marines. Take it for what it is worth, I'm a guy on the internet, who heard it from a guy who was there.

Yep

And never a peep from the Corporate Controlled Media (CCM is way more accurate than MSM) on that fact.

The future will look back and label these times as "Corporate Wars" (if there is a future)

Peace

Joe & Pete are right...

It was Unocal that had dealings with the Taliban, and Chevron bought Unocal just a few years ago. Unocal's dealings with the Taliban were typical foreign country business, and happened back in the 90's before all of the 9/11 stuff. The Taliban were known bad-asses, though, and many of Unocal's employees were upset with the policy.

I claim responsibility

I caused the war in Afghanistan. It's my fault.

I've been using US dollars to purchase gasoline...usually from Exxon...to fuel a Honda that takes me to work, where I pump diesel fuel and lube oil into the locomotives that transport coal to power plants.

Why do I do it? Why am I stuck in this vicious cycle?

My apology is worthless, because I have every intention of doing the very same thing tomorrow morning and the day after, God willing.

He's close, but I believe it

He's close, but I believe it was for Unocal.

Chevron Bought Unocal in 2005

And Chevron was part of Rockefellers Standard Oil.

Former board member Condi Rice should be tried for treason.

Yes, a den of vipers indeed!

Always liked Woody.

Since the pipeline cannot go through Iran (yet),

does anyone know anything about Turkmenistan? They have to have the Caspian sea pipeline go through Turkmenistan before going to Afghanistan and then Pakistan. And does anyone have a map of the pipeline route? Thanks.

uggg, sorry for the double

it's known as the Capisan oil pipeline

Michael Ruppert came out with a book about this

three years ago, Crossing the Rubicon I believe is the name of it.

Ron Paul said: "We are crossing the Rubicon"

He knows it! Read " A Foreign Policy of Freedom " by Ron Paul! It is my favorite among all his books! He knows.

Chalmers Johnson

uses that phrase as well. It is powerful for those in the know

US bases in Afghanistan lie exactly along the pipeline route

The pipeline as the real reason for the Afghanistan invasion is fully true.
To build and then maintain a functioning pipeline requires relative peace in the country.
The US/NATO armies are dying to try and force peace into the region so that private multinational corporations can build a pipeline through Afghanistan.
Blood for oil.
Innocent American blood for highly profitable oil.

+ 1...Agreed! Plus all the profiteering for the MIC

private contractors, opium trade! It's NOT about security, democracy or religion...FOLLOW THE MONEY!! POWER, GREED AND CONTROL by and for the ruling elite...ALWAYS!

I generally agree with

I generally agree with Woody. I wish he and others would get their capitalism/corporatism speak straightened out though. They don't seem to understand the difference.

Miamisburg, Montgomery County, Ohio

Condoleezza Rice

was on the board of directors for Chevron for 10 years prior to being appointed by Bush in 2001, and was also the Chevron public policy director.
She had been in alot of the "stan" countries, and Chevron had a 10 billion dollar investment in Khazakstan, and was trying to get a pipeline in thru that region.

Next thing you know, she's National Security Advisor.
Hmm.

wow

great find - bump.
