See if you can follow this...
US attacks Afghanistan in response to 9/11, with, of course, US tax payer funds.
To add value US funds building of schools etc in Afghanistan.
Using US tax payer funds the only way for contractors to build the schools is to drive drive over dangerous roads.
The only way they can do that is to pay off the Haqqani network. Essentially buy them off using US tax payer funds.
The Haqqani network collects those funds, then uses them deploy a militia to kill US soldiers and attack our embassy.US tax payer funds > Contractors > Haqqani > US deaths.
The Haqqani network does that killing on orders of the Pakistani intelligence services, the ISI.
The ISI received over $2 billion from the United states in the last year.US tax payer funds > ISI > US deaths.
The Haqqani network was created in part by US Congressman Charlie Wilson and with full support of the CIA to fight the Soviets in a proxy war in Afghanistan. US tax payer funds were directed to them in immense amounts.US tax payer funds > Haqqani > US deaths.
How does this make any sense? I feel so sad for our country and our precious soldiers who are being put in harms way..... where the harm is partly or fully funded by... us.
