Blackwater Trained Some of World’s Top Terrorists

The International Business Times reports that the head of special forces chief in Tajikistan was trained by American mercenary company Blackwater, but has now joined ISIS.

Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill notes that Zacharias Moussaoui – the so-called “20th 9/11 hijacker” – had Blackwater’s number in his notebook.

Blackwater often works for the U.S. government. For example, the Atlantic noted in 2012:

President Bush gave the CIA permission to create a top secret assassination unit to find and kill Al Qaeda operatives. The program was kept from Congress for seven years. And when Leon Panetta told legislators about it in 2009, he revealed that the CIA had hired the private security firm Blackwater to help run it. “The move was historic,” says Evan Wright, the two-time National Magazine Award-winning journalist who wrote Generation Kill. “It seems to have marked the first time the U.S. government outsourced a covert assassination service to private enterprise.”

And see this and this.

Indeed, the CIA helped to train and support Bin Laden, Ramzi Yousef and other top Islamic terrorists who bombed the World Trade Center and carried out other terrorist activities.

What a tangled web we weave

    Dishonesty, corruption, hypocrisy, and total lies define the US government. At this point, any thing the corporate MSM says about the US government is not only suspect, but probably false. The propaganda is endless and mostly predictable.
    The US needs a constant supply of “enemies” to keep its war of terror going.
    It will do anything, and use the blanket protective phrase, It is a matter of “national security.
    In my opinion, the USA is the real terrorist threat to the world, and is responsible for the formation of virtually all supposed terrorist groups.

    ….”Bin Laden, Ramzi Yousef and other top Islamic terrorists” ….. didn’t bomb the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or Building 7. That was the dirty work of the PNAC Neo Cons in the bush Administration, the CIA, and the Israeli Mossad.

    News that parts of the PATRIOT Act have temporarily lapsed is to be cheered, but the greater danger — the danger of secret government — remains. The CIA embodies that danger.
