We are not supposed to know too much about all these mad Muslims who work for the CIA and its friends.
Sultan Amir Tarar (Pakistan's Godfather of the Taliban dies 23 January 2011) was a friend of the CIA.
He was trained by American special forces.
He ran CIA-funded training camps in Pakistan.
These camps sent tens of thousands of mujahideen guerrillas into battle against the Soviets.
Among his students was an Afghan called Mullah Omar.
Mullah Omar became head of the Afghan Taliban and came to power in Afghanistan in 1996.
Tarar was Pakistan intelligence's link with the Afghan Taliban.
Both the CIA and its subsidiary ISI (Pakistan intelligence) were friends of the Taliban.
In 2001, the USA, fell out with the Afghan Taliban and decided to attack Afghanistan.
Tarar returned to Pakistan but allegedly continued to act as a link between the ISI and the Taliban.
Reportedly the CIA hopes to use the Afghan Taliban to balkanise certain neighbouring countries. And hopes to use the Pakistan Taliban to balkanise Pakistan.
In 2010, Tarar was kidnapped and in 2011 he died in captivity.
When Tarar was kidnapped, he had been hoping to gain an interview with the Pakistan Taliban leader, Hakimullah Mehsud.
Allegedly, the CIA is using the Pakistan Taliban to break up Pakistan.
On 21 October 2009, Akhtar Jamal, at ahmedquraishi.com/p, revealed the details of how Pakistan Taliban terrorists are being equipped with U.S., Indian and German, weapons.
Gordon Duff, of ‘Veterans Today’, revealed in a recent interview: "The Pakistani Taliban is in close cooperation with India and Israel who supply, finance, arm and train them to attack Pakistan."
Tarar was with Khalid Khawaja, a former ISI spy.
The kidnappers were led by a 'militant' called Usman Punjabi.
Punjabi's group claimed Khawaja was an ISI and CIA agent who had betrayed 'extremists' during the Red Mosque siege in Islamabad in 2007.
Also with Tarar was Asad Qureshi, a British film-maker making an independent film for the UK's Channel Four.
Qureshi was released by his kidnappers.
Punjabi was killed in a shootout with a local tribal commander, and Tarar was handed over to Hakimullah Mehsud's Pakistan Taliban.
Tarar may have known too much about CIA links to the Pakistan Taliban.

And what about Mullah Omar: who knows where he is now?
On 7 January 2011, Mullah Omar reportedly had a heart attack and was treated for several days in a Karachi hospital with the help of Pakistan's spy service the ISI.
According to The Washington Post, a private intelligence firm, the Eclipse Group, was the source of this information.
And the Eclipse Group got its information from a doctor in a Karachi hospital.
The doctor said he saw Mullah Omar.
The New York Times reports that the man who runs the Eclipse Group is former CIA officer Duane R. Clarridge.
He may or may not be telling the truth.
After many years "the world has witnessed that neither Mullah Omar nor Bin Laden have been captured.
"It would be a joke to say that a superpower like the US cannot capture these two men." - Press TV's exclusive interview with Alaeddin Boroujerdi

In 1978, the government in Afghanistan was peaceful, moderate, progressive and non-communist.
The US government wanted control of Afghanistan.
The CIA decided to finance some extremist Moslems and put them into power in Afghanistan.
According to Andrew Gavin Marshall, at Global Research, 5 September 2010, (The “Arc of Crisis”):
Brzezinski said in a 1998 interview:
"It was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the .... 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."
Brzezinski said he "Knowingly increased the probability that (the Soviets) would invade."
The US government plans to balkanise and control the oil rich parts of the world.
Peter Dale Scott pointed out, in The Road to 9/11, that "billions of CIA and Saudi dollars would ultimately be spent in programs that would help enhance ... Wahhabistic jihadism...."
In 1979, Hafizullah Amin, who was reportedly a CIA asset, carried out a coup in Afghanistan.
Amin "halted the reforms, and murdered, jailed, or exiled thousands of (moderates) as he moved toward establishing a fundamentalist Islamic state." (Michael Parenti, Afghanistan, Another Untold Story. Global Research: December 4, 2008: globalresearch.9)
The Soviets intervened in order to replace Amin. The Soviet invasion took place in 1980.
Reportedly, the US plans to break up Saudi Arabia, and several other oil-rich countries.
The USA took the side of the Moslem extremist Afghan Mujahideen.
In 1981, CIA Director Casey worked with Saudi Prince Turki bin Faisal and the Pakistani ISI "to create a foreign legion of jihadi Muslims."
This idea had "originated in the elite Safari Club," a coalition of intelligence agencies, which included the CIA and French intelligence.
More than 100,000 Islamic militants were trained in Pakistan, in camps overseen by the CIA and MI6.
Britain's SAS training future al-Qaida and Taliban fighters in bomb-making and other black arts.
Future al-Qaeda leaders were trained at a CIA camp in Virginia.
This was called Operation Cyclone.
It continued after the Soviets left Afghanistan in 1989.
Drugs money was used to finance the Afghan Mujahideen.
When Britain was in India, Britain's East India Company turned opium into India's main export.
According to Alfred W. McCoy, in The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade, "CIA activities in Burma helped transform the Shan states ... into the largest opium-growing region in the world."
In the 1960s and 1970s, the CIA promoted the drugs trade in Laos and Vietnam.
In the 1980s that the CIA turned Central Asia into a major supplier of heroin for the world market.
The CIA helped Afghanistan's heroin to reach Europe and America. (Alfred W. McCoy, The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade.)
CIA money went to Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, Afghanistan’s leading mujahideen drug lord.
Between 1979 and1980, drug-related deaths in New York City rose 77%.

In the early 1990s the Taliban emerged, and it was supported by the CIA.
"Between 1994 and 1996, the USA supported the Taliban politically through its allies Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, essentially because Washington viewed the Taliban as anti-Iranian, anti-Shia, and pro-Western." (Robert Dreyfuss, Devil’s Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam.)
Selig Harrison, a scholar with links to the CIA, said that the CIA worked with Pakistan to create the Taliban.
(Reportedly the CIA hopes to use the Afghan Taliban to balkanise certain neighbouring countries.)
1. The USA uses profits from heroin to pay for its presence in Afghanistan.
2. The USA set up the Taliban and it still hopes to make use of the Taliban.
3. The USA would like to use the Taliban to destabilise Central Asia.
4. The USA's eventual aim is to have military bases throughout Central Asia.
On 20 August 2009, www.russiatoday.com had an article entitled “Afghan drug trafficking brings US $50 billion a year”
In this article, the main points made by General Mahmut Gareev, a commander during Russia's time in Afghanistan, are as follows:
1. When General Gareev was in Afghanistan, in 1989 and 1990, the production of heroin almost ceased, apart from in certain areas.
3. Since then, it has increased by 44 per cent.
4. 80% of the world’s drugs are produced in Afghanistan.
5. The Americans themselves admit that drugs are often transported out of Afghanistan on American planes.
6. "Drug trafficking in Afghanistan brings them about 50 billion dollars a year – which fully covers the expenses tied to keeping their troops there."
7. The US military "don’t have any planned military action to eliminate the Mujahideen.
"Rather, they want to make the situation more unstable and help the Taliban to be more active.
"They even started negotiations with them, trying to direct them to the Central-Asian republics, to destabilize the whole region and set up their bases there."
