Al Qaeda, U.S. Oil Companies, and Central Asia

Peter Dale Scott has posted a draft chapter from his forthcoming book, "The Road to 9/11."

His conclusion:

"...Since World War Two... the United States power state has consistently used the resources of the global drug traffic to further its own ends, particularly with respect to oil, at the expense of the public order and well-being of the American public state. For at least two decades, from Brzezinski’s backing of Hekmatyar in 1979 to Bush’s backing of the Afghan Northern Alliance in 2001, the United States has continued to draw on the resources of drug-trafficking Islamic jihadists who are or were associated at some point with Al Qaeda."

Yep, I can't sum things up any better than that.
