CIA expands operations in Afghanistan

23
The US CIA is sending more and more experienced employees to Afghanistan to conduct joint operations with Kabul to search for and eliminate the militants of the radical Taliban (banned in the Russian Federation), reports RIA News post the new york times.




According to newspaper sources, the agency “redirected its attention from the traditionally key task of confronting the Al-Qaeda terrorist group (banned in the Russian Federation) to the fight against the Taliban.

As noted by the publication, "this may be a manifestation of the department's involvement in the new strategy of US President Donald Trump on Afghanistan."

In accordance with the new task, CIA officers in Afghanistan are increasingly taking part in secret combat operations, for example, night raids on militant positions and the search for manufacturers of explosive devices. For their implementation are usually involved small counter-terrorism groups,
told one of the sources.

Recall that in August, Trump announced a new American strategy for action in Afghanistan. The president refused to talk about the military aspects of the strategy, but made it clear that there would be no quick withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. In addition, the American contingent will be increased by approximately 3 thousand troops.

    That is, here the experience of the USSR came in handy ... finally realized that the "surgical intervention" of special forces is more effective in such wars than the "sledgehammers" of bombers.

        But the trick is that they seem to control it, but they will have to look for it ... The war there is such. After all, the Americans do not need every Taliban, but from the command and preferably the supreme ...

      Yesterday I heard from the mailbox that the US is flooding Afghanistan with terrorists! That the government of Afghanistan asks questions, but receives no answers! That constantly flying planes with armed people. They occupy tuned items, create chaos

          Guys, Salute !!!! hi
          I would like to rephrase the classic: "Manuscripts do not burn, drug bucks do not smell"
          The scheme is ideal, undercover .... Money in two streams, from the US state budget and from the sale of gerych .... And note everything is legal, no Congress committee will dig ...
          "We are fighting terrorism, we are pushing the Colombian drug mafia from the Americas .."
          And knowing the greed of Mr. Trump, I do not exclude his participation in the share of shareholders ....
          Presidential terms begin and end, and he’s eternal bollos ...!

      We know these "special operations". Probably the production of heroin is increasing, so new "specialists" from the main office were needed. I hope no one will deny that the main channels of heroin from Afghanistan to Europe and Russia are controlled by the CIA.

        12.20. Orinovit! All these channels were created for a reason. These channels are also extrabudgetary funding. In general, heroin solves several problems at once. Undermining the country's economy of heroin consumption. Funding for money from the sales of the right organizations for their own purposes. Money from drugs on any pass through banks and banks make good money on this money. Therefore, the United States is profitable to protect drug lords. Putting the militants on drugs allows for insane military operations (or liquidation operations). Activity in Afghanistan is probably associated with the withdrawal of barmaley from Syria. There they will be treated, fed, carried out an analysis of operations and sent back to battle. I do not think that the fees will be long. Maximum six months to a year. Sense to contain barmaley just like that, no.

          Forgot to mention the destruction of the gene pool in countries consuming Afghan heroin, including Russia. Otherwise, all this is understandable, what you wrote about. None of this is a secret, for those who are at least a little interested in the issue. In such a majority. True, there are still individuals who still “holy” believe in Western democracy and viciously hate their country (Russia).

    This agency has taken on counterintelligence functions that are not inherent to it ... it will not bring anything good to the Americans.

    I don’t know whether the Americans will cope with the Taliban commanders or not, but the CIA staff will have to be replenished for sure after the losses. The same "specialists" of this department along with military instructors taught the Taliban how to conduct guerrilla warfare and sabotage and intelligence activities.
