CIA runs 3,000-strong covert army to hunt down al-Qaida in Pakistan

I found this article from the Times of India today, and was wondering if any of you anti-war, and extra anti-covert war extremists had heard about this.

Not only is this a war most Americans are ignorant of, not only has the US been bombing villages with drones that have killed countless innocent civilians, including children, not only is the CIA operating a *covert* army, but that army is made up of Afghan personnel!

From the article:

"This heavily-armed irregular force manned entirely by Afghan personnel operates in small units called Counter- terrorism Pursuit Teams, the New York Times reported today quoting extracts from a new book 'Obama's wars'(sic) by journalist Bob Woodward."

I have been pretty steamed over the all-but-unannounced Pakistan war since I found out about it (which sadly, was only months ago), but this is just the cherry on the freaking sundae.

I did not realize that Pakistan sold out to the U.S. as well?

What the heck is going on with the middle east. What is going on with Pakistan, and India? Are they that weak that they give up their countries to the west? Something does not sound right here.

peace

peace & Liberty!

I have three questions:

1. How many are actually going?
2. What exactly will they be be doing?
3. What is the bill?

End the CIA

End the CIA

I second that!

:)

The book says that such "kill teams"

were also operating within Afghanistan to target groups like Haqqani network, closely linked to Taliban and al-Qaida.

The members of these hot pursuit units have been probably recruited from the private militias of warlords.

LOL

read it--

as I was reading it, an ad for a cruise ship/line came up; such irony!

:(

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

oh, NO!

Thanks for the heads up--

I think it might be a wise thing to be 'against the state' right now--

this IS horrific!

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

It really takes some

It really takes some mind-mending to accept the notion that "we are the government," when that defies common sense.

I am more than disgusted. Where is the anti-war left?!

Naive or rhetorical?

There is no 'anti war left'! A bought prostitute is not really family!

There is no left vs right, conservative vs liberal, or republican vs democrat!

There is only 'globalists' vs a sovereign America and all other sovereign nations who have every right to be such.

The blessed rights endowed us by a beneficent Creator, achievable by any other nation desiring to follow such guiding lights as respect their sovereignty and autonomy, can only be achieved through following the example formerly set by a peaceful, Christian, and non interventionist America, not at all through warfare.

The latter can only destruct the edifice of liberty.

The former became the continent whose shores of freedom and liberty not only beckoned to those desperate to escape tyranny, but lighted the way for those strong and able to make changes within their own dark lands.

Such was Katanga!

Alas, like so many others to follow, she was also betrayed. In her fight for freedom however, the aggressors paid dearly. It took the combined forces of many nations, and four attacks and battles, and the total destruction of life, liberty and property, to defeat her!

It was not a defeat. It was a victory for liberty by being a testimony to the amount of nourishment sometimes required to nurture that tree! Her death was but one shameful mark left by the perfidious actions of the enemies of liberty and truth. It was but one skirmish in the ongoing battle between globalism and sovereign nations wherein lies freedom or the dream of liberty.

There are many 'Katangas' today. There have been hundreds of "Kantangas'! Since WWII there have been thousands of wars... it is a wonder that America still sits on her couches in front of TV's, in such a sea of blood.

How much longer?
