A shocking and eye-opening new statement from the Taliban is catching headlines around the world. In an interview with NBC News, the de-facto rulers of Afghanistan (and also bonified terrorists we’re going to make it a point to continuously point out that they’re criminals) told the network that they firmly don’t believe they or Bin Laden attacked America.
The group ‘s spokesman further told the outlet that the Americans “used” the idea of Bin Laden being behind the attacks as means to further their own agenda inside Afghanistan.
When Osama bin Laden became an issue for the Americans, he was in Afghanistan,” says Mujahid. “There was no justification for this war. It was an excuse for war.”
NBC also notes that the relationship between the Taliban and Al-Qaeda is being called into question against the backdrop of claims that they won’t allow terrorists into the country.
