The Nation‘s Jeremy Scahill appears on MSNBC to discuss his
colleague Aram Roston’s new investigation into how the US funds the
Taliban. Roston reported that 10 percent of Pentagon logistics funds
go directly to bribe the Taliban not to attack supply chains. “We fund
them to fight with us once we’ve staged the theatre,” says host Dylan
Ratigan. On MSNBC, Scahill outlines the scope of the issue, and adds he
has heard reports that intelligence services are also hiring members of
the Taliban to provide translation services. “We’re funding warlords,
thugs,” says Scahill.
