Al-Qaeda Backers Found With U.S. Contracts in Afghanistan.

A few months ago this would be shocking...but since we are funding Al-Qaeda in Syria...this doesn't surprise me. I just shake my head and think WTF???

Supporters of the Taliban and al-Qaeda in Afghanistan have been getting U.S. military contracts, and American officials are citing “due process rights” as a reason not to cancel the agreements, according to an independent agency monitoring spending.

The U.S. Army Suspension and Debarment Office has declined to act in 43 such cases, John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, said today in a letter accompanying a quarterly report to Congress.

“I am deeply troubled that the U.S. military can pursue, attack, and even kill terrorists and their supporters, but that some in the U.S. government believe we cannot prevent these same people from receiving a government contract,” Sopko said.

The truth is finally starting to get out to the masses. It's Bloomberg, now. Later, who knows? Just let the truth get out there any and every way possible.

I am not an Alex Jones fan,

so when I first heard him talk about Al CIAda, I rolled my eyes.
But he was right...again.

That's been known for a very long time. It was official US policy to radicalize and arm islamists against the soviets. Don't credit AJ for this, it has nothing to do with lizard people.

I hear you, Jill.

My wife can't stand the man because of his voice and I thought he was koo-koo for the same reason. "Over the top."

Then I stopped judging a book by it's cover and read the pages.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

the question now is: when were they not on the payroll.

So much evidence to support a non-interventionist policy here.
