The American people are constantly being lied to

the distortions, deceptions and lies: Three US administrations and their staff have glossed over since 2002, the conflict in Afghanistan in a systematic and the true States is veiled in the war-torn country. This is the result of held documents in the US so far under lock and key-special inspector for the reconstruction of Afghanistan.

After several court proceedings, the "Washington Post forced" the release of the documents, which include, among others, Interviews with over 600 involved in this war commanders, diplomats, and assistants. "The American people are constantly being lied to," said special inspector John Sopko of the newspaper.

in Spite of more than 2300 dead and over 20,000 wounded American soldiers and a total expenditure of around a trillion dollars since the beginning of the war in 2001, according to the records, hardly any progress in Afghanistan. In the same period, 60 died at least'000 Afghan soldiers and police, as well as over 40'000 civilians.

Bush, Obama, and Trump beschönigten

According to the report of the inspector-General of both the government of George W. Bush, as well as the following managed beschönigten ion of Barack Obama and Donald trump joined the States in Afghanistan. Over the entire period of time alleged U.S. commanders and diplomats, in spite of contrary facts, the Taliban were in retreat and the war situation was improving.

"We are making steady progress," said the 2008 General Jeffrey Schloesser, the commander of the 101. Airborne division. In confidential Interviews with the office of the Afghanistan inspector General military and diplomats expressed, however, doubts. So all the data had been changed "to draw the best picture," admitted a Colonel.

James Dobbins, the Afghanistan special Ambassador for presidents Bush and Obama, drew a particularly bleak picture: "We are not a March in a poor country to make it rich, and we are not marching in authoritarian countries to make democracies – we are marching in brutal countries, to make peace, and we have failed in Afghanistan, sure."

comparison with the Pentagon Papers

in 2002, only months after the beginning of the conflict, was the former Secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld about the future of the war. If the security situation will not improve, "we can pull off the military never," said Rumsfeld. The Americans understand Afghanistan, and therefore had "no idea what they are doing there," said General Douglas Lute, Afghanistan-coordinator under George Bush and Barack Obama, the office of the special inspector.

Ryan Crocker, the two-time US Ambassador in Kabul, complained in addition the horrendous corruption of Afghan government: "Our biggest project was probably the development of massive corruption".

on Monday published documents were received in Washington in the first position with the Pentagon Papers, compared, brought in 1971, the truth about the origins and history of the Vietnam war to light. The report of the "Washington Post" is likely to encourage the government to Trump, to end the conflict in Afghanistan after 19 years. The Report could also move also in the war involved Nato partners to rethink their commitment in Afghanistan.
