Zbigniew Brzezinski: "Regret what? That secret operation (the CIA backing of Islamic Fundamentalist Terrorists) was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it?"
Zbigniew Brzezinski: "What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?" Quoting Zbigniew Brzezinski Jan, 1998* (This interview was deleted from the version of Le Nouvel Observateur sent to the US) [this translation into English by Blum]

Osama bin Laden: "The Western regimes and the government of the US bear the blame for what might happen. If their people do not wish to be harmed inside their very own countries, they should seek to elect governments that are truly representative of them and that can protect their interests. **(This part not aired on ABC)
Osama bin Laden: "This is my message to the American people. I urge them to find a serious administration that acts in their interest and does not attack people and violate their honor and pilfer their wealth." Quoting Osama bin Laden May, 1998
Q:WHO the hell supports such murderous people like bin Laden?
A:The CIA, on behalf of Big Business interests. Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II is an excellent book that documents the incredibly immoral, unjust and criminally stupid tactics of the CIA. ( Mr. Blum, author of 'Killing Hope', writes, "It should be noted that there is no demonstrable connection between the Afghanistan war and the breakup of the Soviet Union and its satellites." ) "The single most useful summary of CIA history."- John Stockwell, former CIA officer
"Far and away the best book on the topic." - Noam Chomsky

1. Interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski about how the US provoked the Soviet Union into invading Afghanistan and starting the whole mess: Le Nouvel Observateur (France), Jan 15-21, 1998, p. 76 There are at least two editions of this magazine; with the perhaps sole exception of the Library of Congress,* the version sent to the United States is shorter than the the than the French version, and the Brzezinski interview was not included.
2. From the PBS site Frontline: Read the translation of the ABC John Miller interview (videotaped) which is further down on this page. Or, read the full interview with Bin Laden which starts with questions posed to him by his followers. This interview begins right here; it is then followed by the translation of the Miller interview with Bin Laden. ** (The first quote was not aired by ABC.)
(Note the most probing questions (clarifying the issues) are not asked by ABC's John Miller. (Bin Laden had the whole interview recorded by his own camera and an associate gave a copy of the tape to PBS's FRONTLINE.)
US and bin Laden
Former Friends: President Carter's national security adviser ZbiGniew Brzezinski on his 1980 tour of the Afghan border. Bin Laden first went to Peshawar, Pakistan, here in these photos Brezezinski checks out bin Laden's gun on the border of Afghanistan in 1980. This is what the CIA considers a "good idea": funding terrorists.
This is the only web page on Earth that features these two photos.
Does ANYONE see anything wrong with that? ( prove me wrong)
Photos: Photographs by Philippe Ledru/Corbis Sygma. Larger one scanned from the Village Voice. The Village Voice web site does not have the photo. The smaller one is from a Polish web site, also seen in Spiegel.
Notes on Zbigniew Brzezinski: From 1977 to 1981, Zbigniew Brzezinski was National Security Advisor to the President of the United States. We must stop these dangerous, shortsighted and stupid US foreign policies.
* The basis for saying these are photos of Osama bin Laden and Zbigniew Brzezinski is that the Village Voice Newspaper printed the larger photo with the caption saying "former friends" and the context of the article being about Osama bin Laden, this suggested that the photo is of Osama bin Laden and Zbigniew Brzezinski. Also, the picture looks like bin Laden. This doesn't mean that this photo, or the smaller one, is definitely Osama. The Village Voice's choice of printing the photo may have been misleading, I haven't been able to verify for sure.
You must never think "all these things keep happening and there's nothing I can do." I am working full time on changing things every way I can. I am trying to establish a Representative Media and expose the lies and promote the truths within this current system. Researching the facts, vigorously contacting the media, writing letters to my Representatives, getting the word out - with flyers, printing up a small newspaper, this web site, a public access show ( viewable on the web ) and a planned information phone line capable of handling 16 simultaneous calls.
