10. OBL's day planner was stacked that week!
Sept 9: Assassinate head of Northern Alliance
Sept 11: Start war with United States
Sept 12: Look for a new Cave in Pakistan...

Was Massood's killing done to preparation of an invasion and who's?

Since the Taliban were already at war with Massoud's United Front, why would OBL have to write him to tell him to "urging him to launch an offensive against the alliance."

:shrug:

Here's Massoud giving an interview to Jane's Defense Weekly in June 2001. He talks about how the war is going and seems to feel he is winning?

Here's Massoud giving a press conference in August, 200o on how the war is going and whether negotiations were possible with the Taliban government.

Note his stand on women and their role in Afghanistan? He sounds like a guy we could have worked with inspite of his fierce nationalism and the fact he doesn't like the Taliban and their foreign buddies in Pakistan and AQ!

In fact, if he hadn't died -- we could have armed and supported his group, avoided invasion and got rid of the taliban with a more moderate guy, years before Sept. 11!

But if you re-call there WAS allegations (John O'Neill come on down) that it WAS the Bush Administration was negotiating with the taliban around the same time Cheney's Energy Taskforce was planning whatever it was they were planning:

Bush's Faustian Deal With the Taliban - May 22, 2001
By Robert Scheer

Enslave your girls and women, harbor anti-U.S. terrorists, destroy every vestige of civilization in your homeland, and the Bush administration will embrace you. All that matters is that you line up as an ally in the drug war, the only international cause that this nation still takes seriously.

That's the message sent with the recent gift of $43 million to the Taliban rulers of Afghanistan, the most virulent anti-American violators of human rights in the world today. The gift, announced last Thursday by Secretary of State Colin Powell, in addition to other recent aid, makes the U.S. the main sponsor of the Taliban and rewards that "rogue regime" for declaring that opium growing is against the will of God. So, too, by the Taliban's estimation, are most human activities, but it's the ban on drugs that catches this administration's attention.

Never mind that Osama bin Laden still operates the leading anti-American terror operation from his base in Afghanistan, from which, among other crimes, he launched two bloody attacks on American embassies in Africa in 1998.

Sadly, the Bush administration is cozying up to the Taliban regime at a time when the United Nations, at U.S. insistence, imposes sanctions on Afghanistan because the Kabul government will not turn over Bin Laden.

So early on in the Bush mandate you have all this activity between it and Afghanistan, inspite of the fact they are scumbags and inspite of the fact there was a healthy alternative struggling in the North to defeat them?

Clinton's to blame? Like hell...he attacked them with cruise missiles?

Bush got elected and tried to negotiate a pipeline deal with them and also awarded them 'aid' for their tough 'war on drugs' stand?


Oddly enough Pakistan, who just signed a ceasefire with the Taliban elements in Pakistan, just killed another guy who hates the AQ and taliban just last week: Bugti

Is this assassination the beginning of a larger regional action as well?
