"OPIUM GROWN IN AFGHANISTAN AND SOLD BY IRAN - EVIL HAS NO BOUNDRIES"
WANTED SA learned this morning that Ahmed Wali Karzai, the current Afghan President's brother and alleged key opium kingpin, is on the CIA's payroll and receives regular payments from the agency.
There have been many controversial actions in Afghanistan over the last several months such as the controversial election that was filled with election fraud, international leaders calling for Abdullah Abdullah to concede defeat before the election, US and NATO troop levels in Afghanistan and now a recent New York Times report that suggests Ahmed Wali Karzai works for the CIA.
Karzai is widely suspected, as the opium drug kingpin; he denies such charge, and is suspected to be one of the main perpetrators of voter fraud in August’s Presidential election. The New York Times, citing both past and current US officials, states that Karzai was paid to help recruit Afghan paramilitary forces that operates at the whim of the CIA around the destination of Kandahar for the past eight years, according to Al Jazeera.
He is also paid for renting a large compound outside of the city, which is the former home of the Taliban founder Mullah Mohammed Omar. Furthermore, the report shows that the President’s brother helps the CIA communicate and meet Afghans who are loyal to the Taliban.
The CIA has denied any allegations made, but a CIA spokesperson told Reuters, “Intelligence organization worth the name would ever entertain these kinds of allegation.”
The New York Times pegs the question if the war strategy is legitimate if they are paying off a suspected drug dealer and news agencies have also reported that this move by the CIA has divided officials within the Obama administration, reports China View.
Major-General Michael T. Flynn, a senior US military intelligence officer in Afghanistan, said, “If we are going to conduct a population-centric strategy in Afghanistan, and we are perceived as backing thugs, then we are just undermining ourselves.”
One of the key problems in Afghanistan is the drug trade of opium and news outlets believe the CIA’s actions in the region is a growing sign that the US is not condemning the lucrative drug trade that is one of the major sources of revenues in the country.
Wali Ahmed Karzai has denied any such accusations made against him of being an agent for the CIA.
