Carter Funding Fundamentalists to Sucker Soviets into Afghanistan a History Channel No-No

Dear History Channel CEOs, directors and staff,

Regarding History Channel's feature program on The Muslin Brotherhood titled "Brotherhood of Terror", 2PM EST, September 9, 2007

As was to be expected, there was no mention of President Carter having secretly funded, armed and trained the fundamentalist hill tribes, attacking a modern women emancipating government in Kabul, in order to sucker the Soviets into entering Afghanistan SIX MONTHS LATER, AS BRZEZINSKI would later BRAG to a French Newspaper. (See 'Le Nouvel Observateur' interview attached below at the bottom of this letter.)

History Channel, being owned by A&E joint venture (Hearst, Disney, NBC) and Sky News Corp. conglomerates, has its corporate agenda of deception to promote. This historian- journalist writes for the cc to be received by editors of progressive journals and web sites.

Basic blood is always on the hands of media persons. Without the public's deception the insanity of greed and war on vulnerable nations could not take place.

President Carter's heartless criminally homicidal secret attack on a small friendly nation's government using ethnic and religious divisions to foment civil war goes unprosecuted. Our presidential CIA government is above all laws, treaties, and our own constitution, ONLY for the acquiescent silent cover up by conglomerate entertainment/news media like History Channel.

Interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski U.S. President Carter's National Security Adviser

- Advertisement -
By 'Le Nouvel Observateur' (France), Jan 15-21, 1998, p. 76. Note: There are at least two editions of 'Le Nouvel Observateur.' With the exception of the U.S. Library of Congress, the version sent to the United States did not include the Brzezinski interview.

Question: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs ["From the Shadows"], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?

Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise: Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.

Q: Despite this risk, you were an advocate of this covert action. But perhaps you yourself desired this Soviet entry into war and looked to provoke it?

B: It isn't quite that. We didn't push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would.

Q: When the Soviets justified their intervention by asserting that they intended to fight against a secret involvement of the United States in Afghanistan, people didn't believe them. However, there was a basis of truth. You don't regret anything today?

B: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter: We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.

Q: And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic fundamentalism, having given arms and advice to future terrorists?

B: What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?
