"Now the Taliban will pay a price'' vowed President George W. Bush as American
and British fighter planes unleashed missile attacks against major cities in
Afghanistan. The US Administration claims that Osama bin Laden is behind the
tragic events of the 11th of September. A major war supposedly "against
international terrorism" has been launched, yet the evidence amply confirms
that agencies of the US government have since the Cold War harbored the
"Islamic Militant Network" as part of Washington's foreign policy agenda. In a
bitter irony, the US Air Force is targeting the training camps established in
the 1980s by the CIA.

The main justification for waging this war has been totally fabricated. The
American people have been deliberately and consciously misled by their
government into supporting a major military adventure which affects our
collective future.

Confronted with mounting evidence, the US Administration can no longer deny its
links to Osama. While the CIA admits that Osama bin Laden was an "intelligence
asset" during the Cold War, the relationship is said to "go way back". Most
news reports consider that these Osama-CIA links belong to the "bygone era" of
the Soviet-Afghan war. They are invariably viewed as "irrelevant" to an
understanding of present events. Lost in the barrage of recent history, the
role of the CIA in supporting and developing international terrorist
organisations during the Cold war and its aftermath is casually ignored or
downplayed by the Western media.
