Another Reason You Should Never Believe The Security State

Headline at The Hill“Documents Show US Leaders Mislead Public On Progress In Afghanistan War.”

No, they didn’t mislead – they lied.

Senior U.S. officials knowingly concealed evidence showing a lack of progress throughout the 18-year war in Afghanistan, according to a cache of documents obtained by the Washington Post.

The interviews, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, span the Bush, Obama and Trump administrations and reveal U.S. officials frequently acknowledged the nation was wasting vast amounts of money attempting to transform and Westernize the nation.

While they were telling Congress and the public constantly how they “were making progress”, the reality was different.

In 2015, Ret. Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute, who served as a top advisor on the war during the Bush and Obama administrations, told government interviewers “We were devoid of a fundamental understanding of Afghanistan — we didn’t know what we were doing,”

They lied – they always lie.
