CIA and American post 9/11 support for radical Islam

After the end of the Cold War, Osama bin Laden turned against the West and we no longer had any use for him. His persistent terrorist attacks against us for more than a decade, culminating in 9/11, provoked our own response, in the form of the ‘War on Terror’.

This is the official narrative. And it’s false.

Western intelligence services continue to foster Islamist extremist and terrorist groups connected to al-Qaeda well after 9/11.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union 1991, Islamists affiliated to bin Laden and al-Qaeda continued to receive selective support from Western intelligence services, simply to destabilize potential Russian and Chinese influence, and further securing US-led Western control over strategic energy reserves.

From 1992 to 1995, the Pentagon flew thousands of al-Qaeda mujahidin from Central Asia into Europe, to fight alongside Bosnian Muslims against the Serbs. The mujahidin were “accompanied by US Special Forces equipped with high-tech communications equipment,” according to intelligence sources. Bin Laden sent a senior lieutenant, Muhammed al-Zawahiri (brother of al-Qaeda deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahiri), to lead an élite KLA unit during the Kosovo conflict. He had direct radio contact with NATO leadership. Indeed, British SAS and American Delta Force instructors were training KLA fighters as early as 1996.

When bin Laden moved from Sudan to Afghanistan in June 1996, the State Department warned that the move “could prove more dangerous to US interests”, granting him “the capability to support individuals and groups who have the motive and wherewithal to attack US interests almost worldwide.”
