“There’s absolutely no evidence to the effect that Afghanistan actually attacked America on September 11, 2001.”
October 7, 2001, marked the eleventh anniversary of the US/NATO military intervention in Afghanistan. The Bush Administration, within hours of the dreadful 9/11 attacks, declared that Al Qaeda was responsible. Afghanistan had provided a haven for Osama Bin Laden. Having invoked Article 5 of the NATO Charter which declared an attack on one member, in this case the United States, to be an attack on all members, the NATO countries launched attacks on Afghanistan in tandem with the Northern Alliance to overthrow the Taliban government and crush the terrorist network.
Michel Chossodovsky, director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, explains in this feature interview that there is absolutely no basis for the statement that Afghanistan in any way attacked the United States on September 11, 2001, making the NATO alliance attacks on Afghanistan an act of aggression, rather than self-defense under the doctrine of collective security.
Moreover, the enemy known as Al Qaeda is and always has been a US Intelligence asset. These proxies of US Intelligence have likewise been at work in Syria leading to counter-attacks by the governments of those countries. MIchel Chossudovsky concludes this interview with an anticipation of an international intervention in Syria, similar to the one in Libya, in the name of “protecting the people”.
