President Hamid Karzai continues to insist that terrorism is coming from outside Afghanistan. He continues to imply it is being supported by countries like the United States, it’s the main reason he is holding off on signing a military pact with the Obama regime: “We have an appropriate analysis of the current situation of Afghanistan, and we know who are involved behind plotting destruction of Afghanistan, and those who are sending suicide bombers to Afghanistan.”
Afghan security officials say in recent interrogations of captured attempted suicide bombers, it’s been revealed that people are being drugged with Selective Serotonin Receptor Inhibitors and/or opium, then abused psychologically and physically. A captured potential suicide bomber says people are drugged up to the point of passing out. These drugs are the similar to those prescribed to mass shooters in the United States!
Russian officials say the opium drug industry in Afghanistan is surprisingly well managed, under the U.S. occupation. Russian investigators have discovered huge stockpiles of illegal drugs in Afghanistan: “Around 40,000 tons of opiates are already stored there. So, in fact, they have reached saturation point.”-Viktor Ivanov, Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service
Former Taliban political party finance minister, Mullah Agha Jan Motasim, says what is happening in Afghanistan is the fault of the occupiers, and the invaders have made peace impossible: “The international community bears responsibility for this……After all the bloodletting, we would have to work with people we are fighting.”
ISAF revealed that after the supposed 2014 pullout, the military occupation now known as Operation Enduring Freedom will continue under the title Operation Resolute Support.
Pakistan says a rocket launched from Afghanistan killed one person, and wounded at least one. Pakistan also says a mortar attack from Afghanistan wounded two people. They also claim militants from Afghanistan attacked a village in Pakistan.
The Nation reporting that the number of deaths in Afghanistan could be much higher than reported, because Afghan national and provincial governments are actually charging a fee to release such info to the media.
