Yesterday's friends, today's enemies, 'now' friends again
What we are seeing is another Orwellian total reversal of geo policy and who the enemy is.
Back in the 80’s Osama bin Laden, the Al-Qaida and the Taliban, were the friends and allies of the Americans, as it was a struggle against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.
1985 President Reagan welcomed the Taliban (at that time they were called Mujahedeen) in the White House, and they were hailed heroes.
The propaganda film Rambo III was filmed in 1988 and showed their heroic struggle on the side of the Americans.
'This film is dedicated to the brave people of Afghanistan' ...
1982 President Reagan even dedicated the launch of the Space Shuttle Columbia to the resistance fighters of the Taliban in Afghanistan, and he said, 'These gentlemen are the moral equivalent of America's founding fathers'
Is there a bigger compliment ?
On December 6, 1993 published an interview with Osama Bin Laden in the British newspaper 'The Independent', titled 'Anti-Soviet warrior puts his army on the way to peace' and stood as an addition:
'The Saudi businessman who recruited Mujahideen is now applying them to large construction projects in Sudan.'
He was described in 'The Independent' as a benefactor is building 800km roads in the Sudan.
Hillary Clinton even admitted, 'We financed Bin Laden'.
The former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds and Whistleblower said in a radio interview in 2009, the U.S. maintained 'close ties' to Osama bin Laden and the Taliban, 'all the time up to 11 September 2001'.
They used them for 'operations' in Central Asia and Xinjiang in China.
They put Al Qaeda as much a 'how we did in Afghanistan in the conflict with the Soviet Union', that means in the fight against enemies via proxy.
From hero to greatest villain of all time
Then, from 9/11, Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaeda and the Taliban declared by President Bush the biggest enemies of humanity and the 'war on terror' created.
The war in Afghanistan based on the grounds that continues to this day.
They had been used as scapegoat(s) for the attack on America.
