I hope you trust Seymour Hersh’s story because Muslims quote his story on Abu Gharib Prison now let me quote Seymour Hersh on the background of these so-called Pakistani Talibans and their latest menace of Shariah in Pakistan’s North Western Borders:

Seymour M. Hersh and Taliban Mullahs.

Please dont even start on Real Pakhtoon Mujahideen [overwhelming majority of them were US CIA paid, should I quote History as to how Gulbadin Hikmatyar, Sibghatullah Mujadaddi "A Bandit and Shrine and grave worshipper, Abdul Rab Rasool Siyaf, Burhanuddin Rabbani, Ahmed Shah Masood, Abdul Rasheed Dostum, and last but not least Cockeyed Mullah Umar] and issue of Muslims dont kill. How would you define the Afghan Warring War Lords Infighting [Courtesy General Aslam Beg and General Hamid Gul who exploited Innocent Afghans for the sake of so-called Strategic Depths] after the USSR left Aghanistan and that continued till 911.

These so-called Afghan Warlords even after taking oath on Quran in Holy Kaaba betrayed Afghan people by starting fighting w2ith each other for filthy power politics. Even the Pathological Liar like Hamid Gul admits [latest on Business Plus TV] that we couldn’t control the mess in Afghanistan [his own creation].

Glimpses of US Support to Taliban.

Robin Raphel and Karl Inderfurth Supported Terrorists Mullah Omar and Bin Laden’s friends at State Department Documents confirm Pak aid to Taliban MANOJ JOSHI

TIMES NEWS NETWORK[ MONDAY, MARCH 22, 2004 06:05:04 AM ]

NEW DELHI : US documents declassified on Friday have confirmed what the world long suspected - Pakistan provided millions of dollars, arms and “buses full of adolescent mujahid” to the Taliban in the 1990s. But they throw little light on the encouragement given to the outfit by US officials like assistant secretary for South Asia , Robin Raphel, and her successor, Karl Inderfurth.

The documents obtained by the Washington-based National Security Archive, a NGO located in George Washington University , also reveal that Pakistan stepped up its aid to the Taliban in the wake of its May 1998 test in order to pressure the West to ease the sanctions.

But it was not the volume of the aid that was of concern. As US ambassador to Islamabad Thomas Simons noted in an August 1997 cable to Washington, “the trucks and buses full of adolescent mujahid crossed the frontier shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’… with a day or two of weapons training.” A cable from the US embassy in Islamabad dated July 1, 1998, indicates that the Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had okayed a Pakistani Rs 300-million (approx $6.5 million) payment to Taliban officials and military commanders in a bid to solidify ties with the Taliban. Analysing the impact of the nuclear tests, Ambassador Simons noted, “GOP (Government of Pakistan) appears to have regressed to a point where it is as hardline as ever in favour of the Taliban.”

The documents also reveal that the first time Pakistan officially admitted to providing arms aid to the Taliban was on March 9, 1998 , during a meeting between US no 2 in Islamabad Alan Eastham and a source who is pinpointed as Pakistan foreign ministry official Iftikhar Murshed. A July 2 cable shows how the US tried to keep the Taliban engaged, even while the latter misled them about the status of Osama bin Laden. A Taliban official, probably Abdul Mujahid, told US embassy political officials had placed “tough new controls” on Osama.

A glimpse of Afghan Civil War.

AFGHANISTAN [HRW REPORT 1989]

As the last Soviet troops withdrew from Afghanistan on February 15, Bush administration officials felt largely secure in their belief that the resistance (the mujahedin) would soon oust the Afghan government of Najibullah and seize power. Instead, the Soviet withdrawal left a protracted civil war with devastating costs for civilians across the country.

AFGHANISTAN [HRW REPORT 1990]

Constitutional reforms in Afghanistan held out hope in 1990 for improved respect for civil liberties, although it was too soon to say whether the reforms had been put into practice. Fighting between government troops and resistance forces, or mujahedin, continued at a lower level of intensity than before, although violations of the laws of war continued to be committed by all sides.

THE MASSACRE IN MAZAR-I SHARIF

http://www.hrw.org/reports98/afghan/

By mid-1998, the war in Afghanistan was well into its twentieth year. Following the withdrawal of the last Soviet troops in 1988, the fall of the government of Dr. Najibullah in 1992 by resistance forces marked the beginning of a bloody civil war among shifting alignments of the resistance forces.3 The Taliban, a movement of religious students (talibs) from the Pashtun areas of eastern and southern Afghanistan who had been educated in traditional Islamic schools in Pakistan, emerged in 1994 in part as a reaction to the failure of the other Afghan factions to end the fighting and establish a government that could ensure some peace and stability in the country. When the Taliban took control of the city of Qandahar in 1994, they forced the surrender of dozens of local Pashtun leaders who had presided over a situation of complete lawlessness. It was in this context that the Taliban acquired a reputation for sweeping into power with little bloodshed and with the support of the local population. However, these characteristics of the Taliban’s military strategy did not hold true in its battles for Herat, Kabul, or the north.4
