1952 CIA Document to Create Nationalism in Afghanistan
QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; I read with great interest your insight into another motive behind the illogical attempt to overthrow Syria with respect to Genie. Do you agree that ISIS has been initiated by the CIA?
ANSWER: America’s ambitions to topple governments in the Middle East goes back to at least 1952. According to a Central Intelligence Bulletin during Harry Truman’s administration, dated December 4, 1952, the CIA had sought to arm the Uzbek tribes of Afghanistan in order to instigate a nationalism movement. The CIA hoped that movement would spill over across the border into the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic, and thereby create a Muslim revolution inside the USSR.
These types of military strategies have led to a huge mess. They have NEVER succeeded and have always led to war in far different scenarios than those in government ever dream about. But the USA is by no means alone in this. Saudi Arabia has been also a very active partner in the game.
