Report: Assassin of Hamid Karzai’s Brother Was Trusted CIA Operative

News reports indicate that the bodyguard who assassinated President Hamid Karzai’s brother was a trusted CIA operative and worked closely with US Special Forces. He also appears to have been an undercover operative for the Taliban. Sardar Mohammad shot Ahmed Wali Karzai at his home in Kandahar City on Tuesday. He has two brothers-in-law serving in a CIA-run paramilitary unit, the Kandahar Strike Force.

We have previously seen CIA operatives and sources engaged in terrorist attacks or flagrant fraud.

American officials immediately suggested that this was a personal vendetta but there is growing evidence that we were paying a Taliban operative and helping him gain access to high-level American and British officials.

  1. Hey, the Taliban and other guys like these are one reason we need to cut SS, Medicare and Medicaid. Are you going to ask Obama to cut off funding to these outstanding individuals? Should he cease cutting checks to our mercenary firms? Don’t we need to be in 6 hot wars with Iran on the way? Where are your priorities?

    Personally, I’m with the tea party. Let’s cut govt. spending immediately. Obama doesn’t even need Republicans to meet and surpass their goals. As C and C he can do it with the stroke of his pen. Why doesn’t he?

  2. OT, maybe.

    “Reporter who blew whistle on Murdoch found dead”

    “..The reporter who blew open the phone hacking scandals now threatening to topple News Corporation has been found dead in his London home, according to a report in The Guardian.

    Sean Hoare, who covered show business for the now-defunct British tabloid News of the World, was the first journalist to go on record as claiming his bosses knew about efforts to hack into the voicemails of top officials, soldiers, celebrities, a murder victim and others.

    Hoare alleged in an interview with the BBC that World editor Andy Coulson had asked him personally to hack into phone accounts. Coulson was later hired to be the director of communications for British Prime Minister David Cameron, who was said to have met with Murdoch officials 26 times in his first 15 months in office.

    Hoare in recent weeks has proved a source second-to-none in the ongoing hacking scandals, speaking with reporters at The New York Times and The Guardian about how News Corp. employees were able to obtain GPS location data from any phone they wanted to, simply by bribing police. …”

  3. L.K.,

    Nothing to see here!

    The oligarchy knows how to send a message. I hope people are still brave enough to come forward with more information. Clearly, there is an interlocking directorate in the police, govt. and newz in the UK, just as there is in the States. We desperately need to understand the extent of what is going on. All our communication is monitored. I don’t think people understand that fact. Perhaps this knowledge will open a window on how deeply we are being spied on and how interconnected corporations and the state really are. Mr. Hoare’s death is indicative of the amazing criminality at the heart of the matter.

  5. Anon. Yours,

    To quote Jed Clampett, “One of these days I’m going to have to have a long talk with that boy.”

    But am I shocked that the CIA associates with some nefarious characters?

    Not in the slightest.

    Just look at some of their former Chiefs.
