I think this speaks for itself.

Looks like the islamist supporters at foggy bottom are leaking silly stories again.

Silly? Perhaps. Do you have evidence to prove that the story is wrong? Love to see them.

The article cites multiple sources. Do you think the facts are wrong? If so, in what way?

No, I don't. I got it through a google search. I will try to track down a link, however. Do you have any reason to believe the article is a hoax?

I would like to check some sources first before believing the article. If it turns out to be true than the article speaks for itself as you say.

I am checking the International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism now for some source documents.

Seems to be a lot of funding for questionable organizations coming back to bite the hand that fed it. Does make sure there's always an enemy to justify the next step tho. We're just now paying the price for Carter's boy teaching the ruskies a lesson in Afganistan. I'm sure we will learn nothing from it.

I doubt the story is a hoax or somebody would have exposed it. Nobody has...but I guess stranger things have happened. I will say that the UPI search engine is totally worthless. I typed in Israel as a key word for early 2001 and not one hit came up!

Perhaps someone posted it on FR when it first came out....but that search engine leaves something to be desired to!

Carter did little. Reagan ramped it up. If we had it to do all over again, I would not hesitate. Would you?

This has been discussed on FR before. I believe your article is real.

I can see where they got their info. There is a Paper written by Stephen C. Pelletiere called HAMAS AND HIZBOLLAH: THE RADICAL CHALLENGE TO ISRAEL IN THE OCCUPIED TERRITORIES. (You have to scroll down to get the link to the full article) In it it mentions that Israel did nothing to stop Hamas because they were interested in getting rid of the PLO and figured that Hamas would accomplish that goal. You have to read the complete 63 page document in Acrobat. The mentioning starts on about page 14. It really doesn't states anything about money. Also they advise you that The views expressed in this report are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the Department of the Army, the Department of Defense, or the U.S. Government.

You have to read the complete 63 page document in Acrobat.

You can read, copy and paste the document on line by converting it to HTML.

Copy this URL:

http://carlisle-www.army.mil/usassi/ssipubs/pubs94/hamashiz/hamashiz.pdf

Punch it in here:

A few PDF files are blocked from on line converstion. This one isn't.

From what I've read it was Carter's boy Zegbrinsky(?) who started the plan to encourage the islamic fundamentalists to stir the pot in Afganistan, leading to 20 years of warfare there with the outcome being Taliban rule. So yes, given the choice I would mind my own business and let the Afganis/Russians settle their own problems. Might be 3,000 Americans and a couple buildings still around.
I'm not much of a proponent of the Grand Chessboard view of the world
