“According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the mujahideen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet Army invaded Afghanistan on December 24, 1979. But the reality, secretly 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 in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.”
EARLIER FALSIFICATIONS –
1. How could an event so massive, so recent, and so historically important be so inaccurately reported and underappreciated?
2. How often are plain historical facts distorted for political – and even personal – reasons?
3. What would have happened if instead of attacking the Soviet Union and declaring it an enemy after World War II we made some small effort to understand the trauma that they – our allies in World War II – suffered during the war?
TAP – quite an interesting presentation of the facts of how the forces were moves around by the commanders, but no appreciation of why they were so moved.
