|The wider objective was to oust the Taleban - BBC's George Arney|
Article from the BBC's George Arney from Tuesday, 18 September, 2001, 11:27 GMT 12:27 UK. But before you read this, we also have evidence that top French journalists reported in July 2001 that on July 4, 2001, Osama Bin Laden was being treated in the American hospital in Dubai and was visited by a top CIA official.
A former Pakistani diplomat has told the BBC that the US was planning military action against Osama Bin Laden and the Taleban even before last week's attacks.
Niaz Naik, a former Pakistani Foreign Secretary, was told by senior American officials in mid-July that military action against Afghanistan would go ahead by the middle of October.
Mr Naik said US officials told him of the plan at a UN-sponsored international contact group on Afghanistan which took place in Berlin.
Mr Naik told the BBC that at the meeting the US representatives told him that unless Bin Laden was handed over swiftly America would take military action to kill or capture both Bin Laden and the Taleban leader, Mullah Omar.
The wider objective, according to Mr Naik, would be to topple the Taleban regime and install a transitional government of moderate Afghans in its place - possibly under the leadership of the former Afghan King Zahir Shah.
Mr Naik was told that Washington would launch its operation from bases in Tajikistan, where American advisers were already in place.
He was told that Uzbekistan would also participate in the operation and that 17,000 Russian troops were on standby.
Mr Naik was told that if the military action went ahead it would take place before the snows started falling in Afghanistan, by the middle of October at the latest.
He said that he was in no doubt that after the World Trade Center bombings this pre-existing US plan had been built upon and would be implemented within two or three weeks.
And he said it was doubtful that Washington would drop its plan even if Bin Laden were to be surrendered immediately by the Taliban.
Now enter the PNAC documents into the picture. This article I cite is from informationclearinghouse.info.
"The Project for the New American Century, or PNAC, is a Washington-based think tank created in 1997. Above all else, PNAC desires and demands one thing: The establishment of a global American empire to bend the will of all nations. They chafe at the idea that the United States, the last remaining superpower, does not do more by way of economic and military force to bring the rest of the world under the umbrella of a new socio-economic Pax Americana."
So basically in Sept, 2000, as this document was drafted up, in one point it says that in order for America's plans to go forward to conquer basically other nations it would require a "Peal Harbor" type of event in order to get the American people to go along with their plans for world conquest.
So 9/11 provided the pretext for the US government along with Israel, who BOTH did 9/11, to take away Americans liberties AND to launch the illegal wars. That is why this BBC interview that I mention in this post is so important to establishing the pre-meditated intentions of these two evil government allies.
They got--or should I say, CREATED--their Peal Harbor.
