WAR IS A RACKET: AFTER 17 YEARS AND BILLIONS WASTED, US SEEKS PEACE WITH TALIBAN | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


WAR IS A RACKET: AFTER 17 YEARS AND BILLIONS WASTED, US SEEKS PEACE WITH TALIBAN

Afghanistan, long acknowledged to be America's "forgotten war", has finally returned to the news of late. But this time, in a shocking twist on the now 17-year long conflict, the US is negotiating with the Taliban.

Perhaps this is why the mainstream media has by and large not given this bombshell story the coverage it deserves? Or do the major networks feel the American public has long ago stopped paying attention and will therefore yawn at any headlines containing the words 'US Troops/Afghanistan'?

As Daniel McAdams explains, last week US State Department officials met with Taliban leaders in Qatar. At the request of the Taliban, the US-backed Afghan government was not invited. The officials discussed ceasefires and an end to the war.

Meanwhile, the US inspector general charged with monitoring US spending on Afghanistan reconstruction has reported that since 2008, the US has completely wasted at the least $15.5 billion. He believes that's just the tip of the iceberg, though.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The pushers of this war in Congress should never, ever have been re-elected, from the moment they signed on.
