Skip to comments.Their 9/11 Role - The Taliban Five are even worse than you’ve heard.

One of the five senior Taliban leaders transferred to Qatar in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl played a key role in al Qaedas plans leading up to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Mohammad Fazl, who served as the Talibans army chief of staff and deputy defense minister prior to his detention at Guantánamo, did not have a hand in planning the actual 9/11 hijackings. Along with a notorious al Qaeda leader, however, Fazl did help coordinate a military offensive against the enemies of the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan the day before. And Osama bin Laden viewed that September 10 offensive as an essential part of al Qaedas 9/11 plot.
The 9/11 Commission found that the hijackings in the United States on September 11, 2001, were the culmination of al Qaedas three-step plan. First, on September 9, 2001, al Qaeda assassinated Northern Alliance commander Ahmed Shah Massoud in a suicide bombing. Massouds death was a major gift to the Taliban because he was their chief rival and still controlled parts of the country. The assassination was also intended to weaken opposition to the Taliban and al Qaeda within Afghanistan before the United States could plan its retaliation for the most devastating terrorist attack in history. The Northern Alliance did, in fact, play a role in Americas response.
The following day, September 10, al Qaeda and the Taliban took their second step.

Oh I bet they were.
“Some interesting connecting of dots. I seriously question if ANYONE in The Regime was aware of this.”
Why give the regime that hates all that America stands for the benefit of the doubt?
Good point. My comment could have been better stated as - The Regime chose to IGNORE these known facts.
Don’t forget, the Kenyan regime also tried to get 911 architect Khalid Sheik Mohammed freed. Remember the regimes fanatical insistence that KSM be tried in New York city as a US citizen with full constitutional rights? Because they knew damn well a Judge would have to throw out the case. This is a regime that has tried to free terrorists since day one, literally. His first day in office January 20th 2009, the very first thing he did was trying to close Gitmo. Above everything else, that was his #1 priority. What we got here is not a POTUS but and Islamic enemy agent, and Congress damn well knows it too but being the pussies they are they refuse to do anything about it.
Yes, I do, and it's also a reason I believe the regime will grant amnesty to every last illegal currently mustered on the border. They believe that if you've set your feet on our soil, you're a citizen, and they're going to enforce their will on us much the same way they have with every other EO Obama's signed.
The tragedy here is that there's literally no one doing anything to stop this. No one in Congress, no one in the military, no one.
Nothing surprises me anymore.
Obama CHEERED when the 911 Atrocities were on.
Americans will die from this.
But then they did even as far back
as sfter Fast&Furious
... when the US Congress did nothing.
I know. You think of movies and novels and what would happen next, and surely some hero is going to come riding to the rescue.
When Obama won in November, 2008, I told my friends ‘now all our enemies will know all our secrets’. This Regime knows EVERYTHING. It is only the gullible and naïve (and those who agree with what they’re doing) that always give them the benefit of the doubt.
I did revise and extend my remark in post 4.
Holder withheld some of this info from the Judiciary Committee. But nothing happens to him.
Nope. Fiction is exactly that. The reality is that Solzhenitsyn’s review of the communist revolution in Russia is a more accurate description of how the people cower to power. The current leviathan in DC knows that and is using it to impart their version of terror on the American people.
It doesn’t hurt yet, but it’s coming.
I remember him, clearly.
I had been reading about him and heard about his murder THEN the events of 9/11 occurred.
Concurrent with his murder as I recall, there had been a systematic destruction of ancient, religions carvings in Afghanistan.
I guess no one in the US intelligence community knew the price of a cup of coffee in Afghanistan.... do any of them even read the fact sheets?
if the 5 didn’t pose a threat to the ussa,then why were they detained in the first place, and why were they still at gitmo, and why did the taliban specifically name these 5... keep in mind they were sent to qatar... the same country where the ussa is training the al queda and isis forces.. yes the same isis that turned to iraq... and now obumbler wants to make a deal with iran to send in shia fighters from iran (hezbollah and recall the sadr army) to fight the isis... IS THIS IN ANY WAY RESEMBLING A FOREIGN POLICY OR IS OBUMBLER AND JARRETT AND BRENNAN AND KERRY THE REST OF THE BRAIN DEAD CREW LETTING A BROWNIAN MOVEMENT OF FORCES RUN AMUCK... look its really simple... Obumbler is ONE OF THEM. HE IS A TRAITOR AND A COWARD..surrounded by useful idiots... He has done more to sustain al queda and affiliates than bin laden ever did.. He arms and funds them through proxies QATAR and TURKEY being two of them..as well as direct funding in Syria and Lybia and Egypt. Recall the $1.6 billion he sent to Morsi and also recall Morsi had representatives at the Benghazi Ambassador kidnap/murder, plus the intel intercepts of the telcons between the terrorists in Benghazi and al queda. Plus Al Zawahiri called for an attack in Lybia to revenge the drone attack that killed the Al Lybi al qeda #3 at the time... It all leads right back to Obumbler.. His approach is ambivalent but al queda is booming as a result... Giving up a TRAITOR for 5 TERRORISTS makes absolutely no sense except it benefits al queda and the taliban, who are now threatening pakistan ... that has nukes..
“You think of movies and novels and what would happen next, and surely some hero is going to come riding to the rescue.”
Help is on the way...
Remember when Michelle said “All this for a flag” at a 9-11 remeberance?
It shows that these two have no love for Americans.
0bama is the worst of them all as he has the power.
If this is true these are the most awful, despicable and damnable actions taken by this regime.
Yeah like my brother says it’s a perfect storm that developed: We have an Islamic enemy agent in the White house at the same time that Congress is unwilling to do anything about it, so you have this nut running amok like a bull in a China shop absolutely obliterating every single last thing related to this country. I blame it on the low IQ low info voters who put this punk and this Congress into office in the first place: Every single congressman, Senator that is quiet about this punk ass needs to be removed from office ASAP because they are just as culpable. This is not about party lines, this about our country being attacked and destroyed by an Islamic enemy agent who should have never been elected into office in the first place.
The Wikileaks doc mentions the Haqqanis just wanted cash early on.
My guess is that Obama & Company brought up the Obama 5 as part of the deal just to empty Gitmo. They’ve already said they see the Taliban as ‘part of the fabric’ of society in that region.
General observation: Why is it remotely logical to expect a hero when people have screamed for lesser evils?
With rare exception we elect the lowest common denominator. Last election was filled with cries of lesser evil/no matter what. And now people expect heroes? NOW people wait for Lancelot, the charger and the gleaming armor?
We were told by our own that purists were bad and now people want the pure hero to rise. We were told principle did not matter and now that it’s dark, we want the light of principle to shine brightly.
Actions have consequences. The next time Romney or his clone appears on the ballot, folks should remember that.
There are people in the CIA and Pentagon and State who know, because it's their job to know. Whether that knowledge was ever seen by the national security "dudes" in the WH is another question. However, even if it was known, I doubt it would have troubled Bammy greatly, or have caused him to act differently.
It wasnt just seen. It was criteria for selection.
I’d like to know who is going to be held accountable if any of these five kills, or becomes part of a plot to kill americans.

That would be the fault of George W. Bush, the Koch brothers, Halliburton and the TEA Party.
Bin Laden and the Taliban were linked in 2001. Bin Laden was, for a while, a leader in their organization, something I think Obama and his cronies have forgotten.
BIN LADEN SELECTED AS TALIBAN COMMANDER IN CHIEF

You question if anyone in the Regime knew?
Why ? You trust this regime?
