Suicide Bombing in Afghanistan Raises Question of Trust

Friday, January 01, 2010

The Taliban claimed responsibility for an Afghan officer who blew himself up on a US military base in Afghanistan killing eight Americans. We get an update from Anand Gopal, reporter for the Wall Street Journal, who is on the ground in Kabul. And we talk with Michael Scheuer, former head of the CIA Bin Laden Tracking Unit, about how the American military can train Afghan forces if they can't trust them.

CIA Bin Laden Tracking Unit? ROFL! Oh, my lord, if I hadn't seen that with my own eyes I wouldn't have believed it!

And, let's not comment on the fact that the CIA is now openly at the forefront of every one of the Empire's wars for oil.
