"And you know this is the mindset of these freaks in washington dc but anyway go back to set up the analogy. We could have gone after the guilty. This organization of four hundred arab doughty's energy options hiding in afghanistan bin laden's closest friends and associates and their bodyguards in hangers on you know chechen militiamen whatever and we could have just flatten them flat. But we wanna do that. We wanted to go after the taliban kabul and they're just tell you so in other words we're you know maybe where i go wrong in the book is i sort of imply or i. Don't i don't fill in this space correctly. And so it sort of seems. Like i'm saying like they had this whisper conversation like let's let them go but it's more like no they said look getting bin laden's not the goal right everybody right so then now it's not like a secret weird conspiracy right. It's this is the policy that they decided. And it's all this is in. So much of this is in bob. Woodward's book bush at war. And you know they just gave. Bush told the white house staff. Give everything to bob good old. Bob court historian washington post guy. We like him. We trust him and who wants to go through the trouble of deciding what's telling does give them everything and everybody has permission to talk to him. We got all kinds of interviews. These kooks of course they're all pointing fingers at each other but Which is fine. And there's some honesty in some dishonesty there. It's nice to hear least accusations on firsthand basis. They also just gave them the national security council minutes so they have in their direct quotes from the minutes. From the note takers run. The meetings were rumsfeld is saying and bush's agreeing especially the two of them that look man if we get bin laden. That's not victory if we fail to get bin laden. That's not failure. This war is a big broad wide- giant thing. We gotta make sure. The american people recognize rumsfeld. Says maybe we should start bombing baghdad right now just so. The american people understand this war is not to be isolated to tora bora in nangarhar province. Getting those that got us. That's not what it is. It's everything we wanna do from now on. It's paul woods is entire agenda for greater israel. And whatever you've got now we're going to do whatever we want and we're gonna use this. You know travesty and tragedy as an excuse to do it and you'll lately. I've been trying to give credit to the nine eleven truth. Irs that much of a distraction is all that was as bad as most of that their reasoning has been that ultimately. You got to hand it to him. George bush dick. Cheney might as well have done it. What difference at this point does it make. Has hillary clinton would say whether w bush actually did nine eleven himself. Which i don't. I'm not saying that he did. But i'm saying he killed a million people in their name exploited the grief and the fear of those survivors and the rest of the country in order to get away with attack on a bunch of people. Never done anything to us at all. Who didn't threaten us in any way. And then as documented the book starting with w bush and then continuing through a bomb and through this to this day and took the side about cater in libya syria yemen and in syria and yemen to this day america.

"The pakistani army launched this massive military operation against the northwestern tribal regions of pakistan. So dak in two thousand fourteen. No there is a lot of terrorist attacks in pakistan by these hardline groups and they had this massive counter-insurgency Close to the border of of afghanistan in a pushed. A lot of militants into afghanistan made a lot of them Fled and these are the groups that essentially become the islamic state's local franchise in afghanistan pakistan now As far as like sources the most extensive report i found on them is from the afghan analysts network. According to local residents the first groups of pakistani militants arrived in nangarhar from following operation by the pakistani army that year they moved into afghanistan often with their families apparently to flee military operations by the pakistani army calling themselves refugees in search of shelter they invoked support from the local communities in nagdar who deemed it their moral obligation to extend a helping hand to their past two brothers escaping violence in their hometowns. So i guess what ends up happening is gradually these refugees. Many of them were oppressed civilians. But many of them were not just oppressive aliens who were in pursuit of humanitarian aid. They start pledging allegiance to pakistani militant groups. Right now here. I'm going to go on with this report. And i would want to confirm this part of it hoping to use them against pakistan. The afghan government started to woo some of these fighters. Now that's interesting. what's what's funny about. This is that we know that that you know the vice versa to be true. So pakistani intelligence tacitly supports the afghan taliban. So i mean like i know. We've talked about as a bunch but like why why. Why does pakistan support. The taliban specifically well for one pakistan has an ideological interest in towel. Ben pakistan was created as a muslim nation and islam was glue. That was supposed to hold the country together. Pakistan has a lot of different ethnic and linguistic identities just like afghanistan just like afghanistan for example. There's a little country call the bangladesh. Bright dangle dash was formerly part of pakistan but the bengali speaking community broke away so that loss made the pakistani government paranoid about their western territories with You know the reason why they are paranoid about that is because in the west there is very large Pashtoon speaking populations so that's why pakistan established all these midrasz in these territories to teach this strict brand of islam in the hopes that islamic nationalism was suppressed pashtoon nationalism and You know if you don't recognize the duran line then you have a pashtunistan in the middle of both afghanistan and pakistan people. Don't even really you know dental care about these borders right and it sounds a lot to me like like the kurdistan issue..

"But there is a truth to that or an element of truth and their truth. Yeah, it can cause I as the guy I'm sorry. The short size of the guy we put in power. When I'm there in O 9, is now in charge of nangahar province. He has always poppy fields in the south. You know, I can tell you stories about the drugs with him, of course. But he is a warlord. He's a war criminal. He is a thug. You know, he controls Nangarhar, which nangle whore has the most important border crossing in terms of economically with a Pakistan for Afghanistan and also if it's not the biggest border crossing. It's a second biggest border crossing in Afghanistan. As everyone knows, Afghanistan, the landlocked country, you kind of get an idea how important for border border crossings are. He's in charge of that. So he's taking what he wants and needs from that. He is a thug. Like I said. But the romance with him by U.S. diplomats and U.S. generals is that this guy is our Tony Soprano. You know, and there was in this guy sure as I who had the dancing boys, you know, traffic and raped, you know, young boys, this he did that very clear. We all knew that, you know? I mean, but he's our Tony Soprano. So there was this romance to that with these figures because they seemed oriental. They seemed dangerous. These were men who did what they needed to survive and will power with them because, you know, basically, a very much ends justifies the means of interpretation for what we are doing in Afghanistan. So that's a long way of saying that, along with the willful ignorance and some pretty sincere ignorance, you also had an end justifies the means, a continual rationalization, a continual explanation for what we're doing there.

Haji bug show stood before a judge in Washington DC. He was a long way from his home in Afghanistan and he might never be going back. Bob Show had just been convicted for drug distribution and narcoterrorism. His lawyers had advised him not to testify at the trial. They didn't want him to incriminate himself but at his sentencing hearing bogged show refused to stay silent. He ranted about the witnesses who had been called to testify against him. They were liars and criminals. According to Bob Show. He called himself an honorable man. A simple merchant like his father and his grandfather before him Cho- may have thought of himself as a merchant but it would be hard to describe his lifestyle as simple by his own admission bog. Joe Owned Property in both Afghanistan and Pakistan more than one person described his home in Afghanistan as a castle with a column lined. Main residence a guesthouse. Electricity and running water luxurious accommodations. Compared to his neighbors most people in bog chose. Providence earned a living by farming raising livestock or trading in lumber bog chose spent his days pudding together. Heroin deals in two thousand six his operation produced and sold over one hundred and twenty thousand kilograms of heroin about twenty percent of the world's total heroin supply that year in a single year bogged show earned two hundred and fifty million dollars making him one of the world's richest people and one of the world's poorest countries. The question is how did he get there? It's a difficult question to answer. Thanks to Afghanistan's chaotic past. Most of bog chose life is a complete mystery until the nineteen nineties when his international heroin operation seemed to emerge from the dust fully formed. But a little bit of history can help us fill in the blanks. Joe was born in nineteen forty two in the Non Gerhard province of eastern Afghanistan later in life bog show earned the title. Haji which is an honorific given to Muslims who have completed the pilgrimage to Mecca when bog show was growing up. Afghanistan was locked in a struggle between urban elites who wanted to modernize the country and rural tribal groups who preferred to keep their traditional ways of life in Nangahar bog. Cho- lived among a fiercely independent tribal community that resisted any intrusion. Bog Show called his people frontier. People the Western press had called the area ungovernable comparing it to the wild west militant groups from al-Qaeda to the Taliban to Aycell have all found refuge. Nangahar is remote mountains and complex cave systems in nineteen forty-five when bog show was just three years. Old Afghantistan banned opium production. As part of the government's modernization efforts after World War. Two new diplomatic relationships were forming around the globe and Afghanistan. DidN'T WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND. The ban would show the world that Afghanistan was willing to comply with Western norms including drug control regulations but harvesting poppies was a part of daily life. In rural Afghanistan. Peasants made cooking oil from poppy seeds. They burn the flower. Stocks is firewood. They made soap from the Ash and the harvested opium from the flowers for us as a medicine. Banning opium was seen as a tone deaf insult to their traditions. The law was largely ignored as long as the government could point to the opium Ban as a talking point. They didn't bother actually enforcing it. Neighboring countries like Pakistan India and Iran all pass stricter opium bands over the next few decades and they took their regulations seriously as a result opium smuggling out of Afghanistan skyrocketed in the nineteen sixties. By the time bog Joe was in his early twenties. In the mid sixties drug trafficking rings had sprung up all along the border smuggling was so pervasive. It was hardly seen as illegal or immoral years later. After bogged Joe was arrested. His younger brother admitted he was a smuggler. That's true everyone in our area is Boncho came from a relatively well off family. He inherited property from his father. Who was a wooden merchant and used it to start several businesses gas stations. An electronics store an auto import company. But at some point he turned his focus to drug smuggling perhaps he saw it as a business opportunity to lucrative to pass up. He was right about that. It was a lucrative industry and completely resistant to political turmoil. Things didn't slow down at all when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in nineteen seventy nine. The Soviet invasion was meant to reinforce Afghanistan's new communist government which had won control in a coup the previous year Afghan rebel fighters who call themselves the mujahideen violently resisted the new communist government and the Soviet Army. The war devastated the country. Soviet troops targeted rural farmers burning fields and destroying irrigation canals but poppies were durable crop. They kept flourishing even in the midst of war so thousands of farmers switch their crop of choice to poppy flowers. Opium production increased exponentially and drug traffickers. Had A rebel army ready and willing to protect them Mujahideen. Commanders forged an alliance with drug traffickers including Haji bog show the invested money and resources into smuggling operations and in return smugglers gave the mujahedeen cut of their profits which they used to fund their fight against the Communists then Mujuhedeen funding source to the United States. Government almost immediately after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. The C. I. A. began secretly arming and financing the rebel forces in their fight against communism the US was willing to ignore the fact that some of those funds and guns were making their way to drug traders. The increasing flow of drugs was actually a bonus hero and started falling into the hands of the Soviet troops. Soon enough the Soviets were busy shooting up. Instead of spreading the red menace of communism a decade after their invasion the Soviets decided the war was too costly to maintain. They finally withdrew from Afghanistan in nineteen eighty nine but by then an entire drug industry had blossomed from the burnt fields. Relationships had been made trafficking routes had been established and huge opium bazaars had sprung up throughout the country in the early nineteen eighties. One of these opium markets opened in Gani Kill about twenty miles from the city of Jalalabad. It's sprawled across several blocks like a giant flea market with over five hundred dusty shops and booze but instead of selling antiques and goods merchants here sold opium. Throngs of people pushed their way through the bazaar every day among them was Haji bogged show by the end of the Soviet war in nineteen eighty nine bog. Show was nearly fifty years old. And one of Afghanistan's richest drug smugglers. Although he wasn't yet making the nine figure deals he would later be known for some of Bug chose contemporaries were notorious for their decadent lifestyles infamous Afghan kingpin. Haji Khan was known for his extravagant alcohol. Fueled parties a big taboo in a traditionally Muslim country. But bonk showed didn't have that reputation. He was a family man. He had six brothers two wives and sixteen children. He ran his drug operation like any other family. Business is brother. Bandeau oversaw drug labs where chemist manufactured heroin from opium paste. Bog chose son. Soochow Goule handled the money and recordkeeping bogged show employed about two hundred fifty workers. Even if they weren't blood related bog show wanted them all to feel like they were part of the family. He kept them close. Both emotionally and physically. Most of his servants lived full time on his family's compound bog. Joe Even built a house right next to his own for his top chemist farm on Shah bog chose favorite servant. Cari later said I was not his real son but when it came to food clothes and other things I was treated the same. As his son's bag show was a hands on manager he visited bazaars personally to ensure the opium he purchased was top quality. He then sent the opium to his drug labs which were nestled high in the mountains of Nangarhar thousands of feet above ground level once the chemist extracted heroin from the opium. The drugs were brought to bog chose compound where bog show directed his workers to wrap it in. Plastic stamped with bog chose signature seal to his clients. That seal meant that they were getting the best. Most of the heroin was loaded into trucks and smuggled into Pakistan bog show regularly met with Afghan police and Border Patrol officials for a price. He could make sure that none of his couriers ever ran into any trouble as they moved. Caravans of heroin across Afghanistan's route a one for smaller orders. Bod Show had an even more careful strategy. The couriers wouldn't eat for days. Before their task. Their work required empty stomachs. The heroine was put into capsules and when the time came they swallowed them washing them down with glasses of milk in the early nineteen nineties by. Chou built a second home base in Pakistan. He had dual citizenship which wasn't uncommon. The line between the countries was seen as arbitrary among the tribal communities who traded freely and spoke a common language this second home by Joe and his family a place to escape the new wave of violence and disorder. That was already sweeping across Afghanistan.
