If you still had doubts — and if so, we’re not sure why you would — that there is no such thing as the “deep state,” investigative journalist and Fox Nation host Lara Logan just destroyed any remaining doubts.
In a revealing interview with Fox colleague Tucker Carlson, Logan explained that what’s going on in Afghanistan right now — actually, what’s gone on in Afghanistan for the past 20 years (the lack of progress, the spinning of our wheels, the ‘wash-rinse-repeat’ military strategy, etc.) is precisely what functionaries embedded in the military-industrial complex have wanted to happen.
It’s disgusting, it’s maddening, it’s frankly treasonous, but what she says is nonetheless revealing and it proves — again — that Americans have literally no control over our central government, our ‘representatives’ notwithstanding.
Read it and weep, USA Features News:
'What they want you to believe is that Afghanistan is complicated. Because if you complicate it, it's a tactic in information warfare called 'ambiguity increasing,'' Logan, host of 'Lara Logan Has No Agenda' on Fox Nation, the network's streaming service, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Logan said that whoever is 'pulling the strings' in government intends for crises like the one in Afghanistan and along the U.S.-Mexico border to intensify even though officials claim there isn't anything they can do.
'So now we're all talking about the corruption and the 'this' and the 'that' and that there's all these complex parts — but at its heart, every single thing in the world, in your personal life, professionally, on the global stage, at its heart, it's very simple,' she continued.
'It always comes down to one thing, one or two things. And in this case, in Afghanistan, this comes down to the fact that the United States wants this outcome,' she added.
'Whoever is in power right now, whoever is really pulling the strings – and I don't know that – they could do anything they want to change this. And they're not.'
Logan went on to tell Carlson that the U.S. has always prioritized next-door Pakistan as the regional power because it has nuclear weapons. She also said that U.S. officials throughout the war in Afghanistan were aware that the Taliban's base of operations was there and that it would not exist as a viable organization without Pakistan's support, much of which also comes from the U.S. in the form of funding for the Islamabad's military and intelligence services.
With that in mind, Logan said if the U.S. wanted to effect a better outcome in Afghanistan, Washington has several options to use but has chosen not to do so, including dealing with the current crisis situation in Kabul.
Again, she said, the focus is on Pakistan.
'For example, you could stop the money. You could stop the remittances of Pakistanis living in the United States. You could put on sanctions. You could have visas [withdrawn], you know,' she said. …
'The idea that they missed this. You know what it takes to do an invasion like this? You have to stage forces. You have to plan. You have to have meetings. You have to have, you know, weapons that are moving in,' Logan said.
'They don't tell you the national security threat posed by letting the cartels come across the southern border, do they? They only have a conversation about one thing, the humanitarian aspect. They never address that.'
There’s more, and it’s bad.
