Biden admin moved to dismantle protections for citizens trapped overseas months before Kabul’s fall: memo

Excellent comments under the article at Fox News – linked below. But first, a little excerpt…

The Biden administration moved in June to dismantle a system designed to protect American citizens trapped abroad — just months before the Taliban took over Afghanistan, stranding thousands of Americans in the Central Asian country.

Fox News has obtained the June 11 memo sent around the State Department which gave the green light on the “discontinuation of the establishment, and the termination of, the Contingency and Crisis Response Bureau (CCR).”

The sensitive but unclassified memo was signed by Deputy Secretary of State Brian McKeon, just a couple of months before the Biden administration’s botched troop withdrawal that saw Afghanistan fall under Taliban control.,,

Australian Unions Turn Their Back on Workers Who Want Freedom from Shots

A stark admission in a leaked email has unveiled a dark unsupported future for Australian workers.

By General Maddox.

The Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) covers approximately 50 separate unions, trades and labour councils across almost every employment category in Australia including government employee unions.

A leaked email from the Australian Trade Union Institute, which is the centre for providing education, collaboration and research for Australian Unions, has told that it will not support Aussie workers who choose not to receive the experimental COVID-19 jabs.

Not only is the ACTU’s position on mandatory vaccination for workers in favour of it but the leaked email describes how an upcoming webinar will explore how Union Organisers (Unionists) can begin to educate their members to get vaccinated.

The email goes on to say:

It will equip unions with the arguments for vaccination based on facts and evidence, explain the legal status of vaccine programs and vaccine mandates in workplaces, and provide guidance on how to talk about the vaccines in both workplace settings and in public media.

The unions have been DEAD SILENT over the last 18 months and have avoided vocalizing their position on mandatory vaccination for their members.

This type of behavior paints a picture of dodgy back room deals with Union heads and the Australian Government in order to keep unions quiet during this entire pandemic.

So why are they all of a sudden on the side of the Government and not their members?

Union delegates in workplaces across the country have been raising the issue of mandatory vaccination in their workplaces with Union Organisers for months. But unions have only responded with bland recommendations of following public health advice.

“Officially” the ACTU’s position is that they are adhering to the “Public Health Orders”. Which is by proxy adhering to whatever the government says.

The reality is that the ACTU WILL NOT help Australian workers who believe in freedom of choice and don’t wish to take the experimental COVID-19 vaccines.

The first No Jab – No Job

SPC Australia is a prime example of this right now. The company is the first Australian company to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for all staff. Completely disregarding their workers right to self determination and freedom of choice.

So where was their Union representatives in this matter? Right there by the side of the employer and in the shadow of the Australian government. They weren’t there fighting for workers. They in fact declared they weren’t opposed to it.

Assistant National Secretary Jason Hefford said broadly the union wasn’t opposed but they wanted more discussion with the company.

So far only one union body has showed its support for workers to make their own choice regarding vaccination….

Robin Cook, former british foreign secretary, on the origins of the term “Al-Qaida”

8 Jul 2005: … Bin Laden was, though, a product of a monumental miscalculation by western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. Al-Qaida, literally “the database”, was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians. Inexplicably, and with disastrous consequences, it never appears to have occurred to Washington that once Russia was out of the way, Bin Laden’s organisation would turn its attention to the west. …

https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2005/jul/08/july7.development

Do you think the mujahideen would have named themselves “the database”?    Did they even know what a database was?   Did they  ever have an existence apart from their CIA handlers?   Of course not, and if you need more proof you can convince yourself of this fact by perusing the 9/11 links in the references section of this site.   9/11 was a western deep state intelligence operation designed to provide justification for the neocon’s wet dreams of conquest in the middle east.  http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2011/09/wesley-clark-on-neocon-policy-coup

BTW, look what happened to Cook a mere month after this article was published:

Afghanistan: Brzezinski’s interview with Le Nouvel Observateur

Translated from the French by William Blum and David N. Gibbs. This translation was published in Gibbs, “Afghanistan: The Soviet Invasion in Retrospect,” International Politics 37, no. 2, 2000, pp. 241-242. For article full text, click here.

Original French version appeared in “Les Révélations d’un Ancien Conseilleur de Carter: ‘Oui, la CIA est Entrée en Afghanistan avant les Russes…’” Le Nouvel Observateur [Paris], January 15-21, 1998, p. 76. Click here for original French text.  Note that all ellipses appeared in the original transcript, as published in Le Nouvel Observateur.

Question: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs that the American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahiddin in Afghanistan six months before the Soviet intervention. Is this period, you were the national securty advisor to President Carter. You therefore played a key role in this affair. Is this correct?

Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahiddin began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan on December 24, 1979. But the reality, closely guarded until now, is completely otherwise: Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention [emphasis added throughout].

Q: Despite this risk, you were an advocate of this covert action. But perhaps you yourself desired this Soviet entry into the war and looked for a way to provoke it?

B: It wasn’t quite like that. We didn’t push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would.

Q : When the Soviets justified their intervention by asserting that they intended to fight against secret US involvement in Afghanistan , nobody believed them . However, there was an element of truth in this. You don’t regret any of this today?

B: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter, essentially: “We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war.” Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war that was unsustainable for the regime , a conflict that bought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.

Q: And neither do you regret having supported Islamic fundamentalism, which has given arms and advice to future terrorists?

B : What is more important in world history? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some agitated Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?….

Zbigniew Brzezinski, Godfather of al Qaeda and Taliban, Dead at 89

Taliban Now Controls 11 Former US Bases, Approximately 174 Humvees, 10,000 High Explosive Rockets and 6 Light Attack Aircraft

Thanks to Joe Biden the Taliban is well prepared to control the populace in Afghanistan.

The Taliban now has humvees patrolling Kabul.

ETVBharat reported:

New Delhi: Riding on a victory wave replete with a hasty US withdrawal and an abject capitulation by the Afghan army, to say that the Taliban has become stronger may be an obvious understatement. The insurgent organization may soon gleefully lay its hands on the vast array of military resources left behind.

Just to help the Afghan government provide security in Afghanistan, the US had pumped in about $89 billion as of June 30, 2021. With the Ashraf Ghani-led Afghan government’s sudden fall, it would be safe to assume that a substantial chunk of those investments has fallen into the Taliban hands.Just to give an idea, according to the US government official figures, in the three months from April to June 2021, the US handed over to the Afghan National Defense and Security forces (ANDSF) six A-29 light attack aircraft, 174 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (Humvees), about 10,000 2.75 inch high-explosive rockets, 61,000 40-mm high explosive rounds, 9,00,000 rounds of .50 calibre ammo, and 20,15,600 rounds of 7.62 mm bullets.

While a stock-taking exercise is yet to begin in the war-ravaged country because of the prevailing circumstances, it is very likely that the Taliban may have taken possession of most of those assets.

Air force assets

The Afghan Air Force (AAF) operates three types of helicopters which include the 45 UH-60 Blackhawks, 50 MD-530s, and 56 Mi-17 helicopters besides its A-29 Super Tucano fighters (23 in number), C-130 Hercules transport aircraft, C-208 utility aircraft, and AC-208 fixed-wing aircraft.In total, the AAF has an inventory of 211 air platforms of which 167 were operable as of June 30, 2021. However, a problem that may dog the Taliban in operating these platforms will be finding operators and aviators, mechanics and locating spares.

Military bases

The 11 bases and military complexes recently handed over to the ANDSF are New Antonik, Kandahar airfield, Camp Morehead, New Kabul Complex, Blockhouse, Camp Stevenson, Camp Dwyer, Camp Lincoln (Camp Marmal), Camp Arena, Bagram airfield and the Resolute Support headquarters (RSHQ) which was handed over to the Afghan government on June 6, 2021.

It would be a mistake to write this off as a failure of US foreign policy.   The taliban can now resume carrying out Brzezinski’s plan to sic them on russia.   It’s always been about destabilizing first the USSR and then Russia, which still stubbornly refuses to implode despite the USA’s best efforts.

This was deliberate.

Washington Hospital Removing Patients From Transplant List for Being Unvaccinated

The University of Washington Medical Center has kicked “several patients” off their transplant waiting list for not being vaccinated, according to reports.

The report says that the hospital began denying organ transplants to the unvaccinated in June 2021.

Seattle station KTTH reports, “UW Medicine removed a 64-year-old patient from the transplant waitlist. He says he was on the list for two and a half years. The hospital made the decision after they learned the patient refused to be vaccinated against COVID. They said they would consider adding him back to the waitlist should he satisfy their ‘compliance concerns.’”…

“As a person who has spent much time and money at UWMC as a heart failure patient, I am being told I cannot get care for my condition unless I take an injection that has shown to cause cardiac problems,” he wrote. “It seems that a wise choice would be to not make a panic move and run to get injected with the experimental gene therapy until more is known.”…
