“I decided to go and meet the Taliban in the spring of 1999, two years before the 9/11 attacks. Most of us, including me, didn’t know much about the Taliban back then, nor did we want to. A decade earlier, the CIA funded and trained Muslim rebels to kick the Soviets out of Afghanistan after ten years of occupation. That made America happy — the Soviet Union defeated! Humiliated! Our pundits called it “their Vietnam!“ like we had actually learned a single damn lesson from Vietnam. As for what was left of Afghanistan, well, who friggin’ cared?”

  1. The CIA and US military has always been a strategic f**k-up. They create the problems then step up to solve them and f**k it up. It's all about the money. Chaos is a profitable business. Innocent people die and suffer and nothing gets better. The money flows.

  2. Macklemore doesn't seem to understand Donald Trump getting lead us to this almost Civil War he held it back for 4 years we would have already seen conflict if Hillary had gotten into the White House in 2016

  3. There was a quote from a former marine on the Netflix special turning point. He said serving in Afghanistan taught him that the US is the land of freedom, but it’s the land of “the freedom to pretend.” It’s the freedom to pretend the outside world doesn’t exist. The freedom to pretend that they’re a world leader and freedom fighters. Man, that quote about having “the freedom to pretend” really sticks with me.

  4. Now USA media is not even covering the Northern Alliance resistance forces who are being bombarded by Pakistani AirForce, who have absolutely no business interfering in Afghanistan’s business, it’s independence. Something that has been pointed out by media in France, Iran, Qatar, India, Australia and many more. BTW the Northern Alliance are the same people who helped the USA troops against Taliban. USA is not even showing support to them so forget about sending them military and humanitarian support. The Taliban has desecrated Ahmad Shah Massoud’s grave. The Lion of Panjshir who fought besides USA against the Soviet Union, Taliban and for Afghanistan like a true patriot. Instead of all these good deeds that USA could have done without sending troops to Afghanistan, USA chose to legitimise Taliban and gave Pakistan’s digressions a free pass. Well done! Go celebrate chaos and unending conflict.

  5. Why didn’t they name this video “George Bush arranged negotiations with the Taliban” if they wanted a lot of people to watch this video like they did the Hillary Clinton one?
