This is a clear-cut case of the Pentagon sabotaging the White House

Nangarhar is the secured province that is being turned over to Afghan forces, where the border incident has erupted.  The attack upon Pakistan was intended as a demonstration for the world to see the dangers of an early Afghan transition and withdrawal.  What else could explain this Afghan unit gaining command over Nangarhar Province on the same day that calls for air support inside Pakistan have become necessary?  This is a clear-cut case of the Pentagon sabotaging the White House.  It is also the first sign of what post-reconciliation ISAFactions will look like, under a Northern Alliance-dominated Afghan regime.  Since the murder of Rabbani, Afghan security officials have been screaming in unison for this day to come–

“The Taliban can only be defeated by attacking them in Pakistan.”

According to former head of Afghanistan’s secret service, Amrullah Saleh, “You poison the soil where that grass is, then you eliminate it forever.”  This is what has happened on Pakistan’s side of the Durand Line, the Pakistani Taliban from Mohmand (who have relocated to Afghanistan) have poisoned the Pakistani soil  by firing upon Afghan forces from points near outpost Salala’s coordinates, in order to bring the two sides together inside Pakistan.  This is not the first time that the Pakistani Taliban have used this tactic to bring the Afghan and Pakistani forces together.  They used it preceding the “Battle of Wanat” and once again in the “Gora Prai” border post assault.  In the Gora Prai video below you can see the individual militants being killed. 

The Gora Prai video is from a single Predator; it pales in comparison to the latest assault which allegedly involved repeated runs of aircraft and helicopters, over a period of several hours. 

The following was sent to me by a friend from Peshawar.  It is self-explanatory.   

“Another pack of Lies By NATO

 Today’s papers carry the news that the NATO Chief has said that the  attack on Pakistani soldiers was un-intentional. Very generous of him!!
 Yesterday, I talked to Lt Col ZZZZZZ from Peshawar. He had just visited CMH Peshawar to meet the wounded in Salah Post by the US/ATO raid on night of 26 November. This is what he told me.
 There were 14 wounded lying in the surgical ward suffering a variety of wounds. He talked to every one of them and asked them what had happened. The crux of the account of the soldiers and officers was that at about 11pm on 26th Nov a light aircraft came from across the border, flew over the post and fired flares and returned. About half an hour later armed helicopters and light aircraft came . They again fired flares and began firing at the men. They remained in the area for about 5 – 6 hours. During this time, the helicopter firing at individual personnel at will. The post had only one 12.7 anti-aircraft gun which opened fire. The gunner was shot. The major on the post took up the gun and began firing at the helicopters. He was fired at again. While changing position he was hit by a rocket or missile. His body was blasted to pieces. Only his name-plate was found.
Every one of the men on the post was killed or wounded. They seemed to be in no hurry and going after each individual separately. Having finished the entire post, they peaceably went back without any casualty on their part.
 And the NATO Chief has the effrontery to say that it was un-intentional.
 Now my question is, if for 5 to 6 hours this enemy action was taking place and our ground troops were under such deliberate enemy fire, where was the Army’s reaction and where was the PAF during all this time?I cannot believe that the Corps HQ or the PAF Northern Command in Peshawar did not know what was going on,on the front. If so, both should be disbanded for deliberate incompetence.”

The biggest question is–Why did the joint military commands allow the attack to happen, or make no effort to end it?

If the dust was allowed to settle on this confrontation, then it would surely reveal that it was the TTP bringing Afghan and Pakistani forces into conflict, which they would be inclined to do, considering the level of penetration of the Pakistani Taliban by British, Afghan, and American secret services (SEE: Dissecting the Anti-Pakistan Psyop).  Through these separate assets, plus those of India and the Mossad, the Pakistani Taliban have always danced to the same tune as the CIA.  This does not necessarily mean that Hakeemullah Mehsud (and Baitullah before him), Faqir Mohammed and Fazlullah are conscious American assets, but that they might as well be.  If they are so foolish as to be led around by the nose by spook money, doing the Empire’s bidding, then they are nothing more than petty mercenaries, pretending to be revolutionary jihadis. 

This attack can be compared to the Mumbai attack, in that Pakistani jihadis have taken actions which were intended to bring Pakistan into conflict with one of its neighbors.   The last time it was India’s turn.  Indian leaders kept a cool head, at that time, avoiding another major war with Pakistan, to suit American interests.  Will Afghan leaders use their heads, to see this blow-up as their own warning to turn back from the pied piper’s road to oblivion, before it is too late for us all?

Nangarhar ready for security transfer

by Abdul Moeed Hashmi on 28 November, 2011 – 18:36

JALALABAD (PAN): Officials and tribal elders on Monday said the eastern province of Nangarhar was ready for security transition, stressing the need for increasing the strength of Afghan security forces.

Afghan forces will take over the security responsibility in 18 more areas in the second phase of transition. The forces will take full control of Balkh, Daikundi, Takhar, Samangan, Kabul and Nimroz provinces.

The cities included in the second phase of transition include Jalalabad, Chaghcharan, Shiberghan, Faizabad, Ghazni, Maidan Shahr and Qala-i-Naw. Helmand districts Nawa, Nad Ali and Marja are also to change hands.

In Nangarhar, Jalalabad, the provincial capital, Kama, Behsud, Khewa and Surkhrod districts would be handed to Afghan forces. Surkhrod district chief, Syed Ali Akbar Sadat, said they were ready for the handover, but the inadequate police strength posed a problem.

Governor Gul Agha Sherzai had discussed the issue with civil and military officials, his spokesman Ahmad Zia Abdulzai said, adding the provincial capital is ready for the transfer.

“Foreign soldiers disrespect our traditions and we no longer need them,” Wilayat Khan, a tribal elder from Behsud, told Pajhwok Afghan News. The district had only 50 policemen, he said, asking the government to increase their number.

    So, Pak Army had nothing to do with Mumbai Attacks despite that Pak Army IPSR (or whatever its called) has admitted in public that “Some rogue Elements of ISI were involved in it” after USA showed a lot of evidence of that and now some rogue Elements have caused this US Attack on Pak Soldiers according to this Agent of ISI in USA.
    The Question is, why were Pak Army Soldiers were inside Afghanistan attacking Afghan and US Army, not why US Army attacked them. US Army attacked them because they were not in Pak Army Uniforms and were shooting at it. How the hell should have US Army known, they belonged to Pak Army, when Pak Army keeps claiming its an Ally of USA in War against Terrorism in the forefront?
    Why should US Army not attack back, who attacks it pretending to be Taliban?
    Pakistan Military has been caught fighting US Soldiers here so, it should be declared at was with USA by Obama just like some Senators and Congressmen have said this yesterday. They want USA to stop all Charity of Aid to lying, cheating, blackmailing and back-stabbing Pakistan because nothing else has worked for the last 10 years but Obama, who’s Effigies are being burnt on the streets of Pakistan by the Agents of Pak Military loves Pakistan so much that he has not taken any action so far against Pakistan, while protests against USA continue on in Pakistan.
    The other question is, how can he decide to pull US Army out of Afghanistan in a situation, when even US Army is being attacked by Pak Military even now?
    Why would Pak Military not attack Afghan Army after US Army leaves and take over Afghanistan like in 1996 in disguise of Taliban again in 2014?
    It clearly shows, USA is not fighting Taliban or Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, she is fighting their mother, Pak Military.

    Is Pakistan the only place where anti US demonstrations take place? Re comments on lying, my freind is no longer a hidden fact that this was an attack not a reaction to any attack and that is why the whole NATO is regretting it.

      Oh yeah, yeah, …
      * More than 50,000 US Troops in Germany since1945. Everyday they are being killed by Germany Freedom Fighters and demonstration have been taken place against US Occupation of Germany.
      * 50,000 US Troops in S. Korea since 1951. Everyday they are being killed by Korean Freedom Fighters like Taliban and demonstration have been taken place against US Occupation of S Korea.
      * 35,000 US Troops in Japan since 1945. Every day they are being killed and demonstration have been taken place against US Occupation of Japan.
      * Another 50,000 US Troops are in 18 non Moslim countries and in all of them Freedom Fighters are killing them and demonstrations are taking place everyday.
      * There are US Troops in Oman, Qatar, UAE, Kuwait, Turkey etc. Moslims are killing them and protesting against them everyday.
      USA has looted all those countries so much that all those poverty stricken countries from Germany to Japan and in between live off Charity of US Aid and Loans just like Poor Pakistan, right?
      USA has kept them backwards and none of them are as advanced as Pakistan, right?
      USA just wants to occupy and loot just like Pak Army, right?
