    Prior to your post, no one defended giving this ass-clown getting millions in American greenbacks, yet you posted the, "holy-crap-look-at-the-Right-Wing-partisan-hacks", post anyway.

    Hello, pot! Where is kettle??

    I have posted a few threads about the lost cash in Iraq and few cared to respond. Millions of missing dollars disappear out of thin air, yet few gave a rat's ass. Yet someone here posts something about food stamps being used for potato chips, and by golly, 85 pages into it, the flaming partisans still have their panties all knotted up.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Ain't America wonderful.....

    Making friends, influencing people all over the world.
    So special interests and lobbyist buy American politicians and the CIA buys foreign presidents. Yep, America is beautiful.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I'm sorry that you didn't get the fox paw response you were hoping for, but it doesn't excuse your hackery in this thread.

    After over a decade, it amazes me that two administrations were unable to see what the average Joe on the street knew within the first year of the war... that Karzai was a corrupt, unqualified narcissist with zero leadership/administrative skills and an insatiable appetite for both power and money. What a massive cluster**** Afghanistan has been, initially implemented in haste without a clear goal or exit strategy, which has left the country in more disarray, with more power in Taliban hands now than when we first arrived.

    America may have the most powerful military on the planet, but that doesn't do much when it is controlled by a pack of fools with an agenda, and that is exactly what happened in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    In that context, these money transfers are not surprising. IMO, Congress should close the kind of legal loopholes that make such money transfers possible.
    All the 14 tribe Northern Alliance wanted after driving the Taliban out of Afghanistan was to return to their tribal ways of governing which has suited them for over a thousand years. What the U.S. did was force Democracy on them and set up Karzai and his tribe to rule of the other tribes. All this did, nation building was turn 10 or 11 of the tribes that was once pro American and our allies into enemies.

    No, but he did pay them hundreds of millions to erradicate the poppy crops.

    Awwww! Even Michael Moore knew about Clinton giving $245 million in, "hard-cold-Amercan-cash", to the Tallies!

    2000-2001 US gives Taliban 245 million in aid.

    The one hope for a good Afghanistan leader lay in Ahmed Shah massoud, but he was tajik when tradition dictates that only pashtuns could rule Afghanistan. afghanistans's best hope died with him when he was assassinated.

    i am not one to believe in conspiracy theorys but the fact that he was killed two days before 9/11 makes me wonder if al qeada was involved.

    Amen, DiAnna. Amazing how few have learned from past mistakes. One of the most powerful docs I have ever watched was The Fog of War, featuring Robert McNamara reflecting the lessons learned from Vietnam. He came up with a list of eleven which many Administrations have broken--especially Bush 43. Sadly, I am sure the same mistakes will be made again.

    How much did Reagan gave them?

    PS. Who was President in 2000-2001?
