Lara Logan on Afghan crisis: ‘US wants this result’; the one who ‘pulls the strings’ can change it

Investigative journalist Lara Logan, hosted for “No agenda“on Fox Nation, said Wednesday, it is clear that the US government prefers the chaotic result in Afghanistan as well as the criminal and humanitarian crises at the U.S. southern border.

Logan told Fox Nation’s “Tucker Carlson today“that everyone in Washington really” pulls the strings “in government intends these crises to intensify given their often unmanaged ability to stop them from worsening.

“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 rising’,” he said. Said Logan.

“So now we’re all talking about corruption and ‘this’ and ‘that’, and that there are all these complex parts – but in the heart, every single thing in the world, in your personal life, professionally, on a global stage, in the heart is “It’s very simple. It always comes down to one thing, one or two things. And in this case, in Afghanistan, it comes down to the United States wanting that result,” she continued.

“The one who’s in power right now, the one who’s really pulling the strings – and I do not know – they could do anything they want to change this. And they are not.”

Logan explained that the Taliban’s main base is not Afghanistan but Pakistan, and that Islamabad is the only regional government with nuclear capacity. Combining these factors helps explain why there is no urgency in correcting courses in Afghanistan.


She said the United States is helping to fund a good deal, if not all, of the Pakistani defense budget in the form of military and intelligence services, like ISI.

“For example, you can stop the money. You can stop money transfers from Pakistanis living in the United States. You can impose sanctions. You can have a visa [withdrawn]”You know,” Logan said of a potential action the U.S. government could quickly take to counter disaster in Kabul.

“Every time you try to solve this problem, the immediate reaction for 20 years of this war has been that you are in favor of war in Pakistan. No, you are not. What they know is that there are many things, “The United States could do right now to change what has happened and is happening in Afghanistan. And they are not.”

Logan reported it President Biden once the then Afghan president Hamid Karzai told exactly what she just said: that Pakistan strategically means something and Afghanistan does not.

“When we hear about the bureaucracy on Capitol Hill, which are the bureaucrats who survive from administration to administration, this has been their policy,” she said of the idea they have supported Pakistan.

“They have pushed the Bush administration through, through Clinton, through Obama, through Trump and now to Biden that because Pakistan is a nuclear nation, they are the only country in the region that actually matters. In fact, Joe Biden told the President of Afghanistan – when it was still Hamid Karzai in power – exactly that. “

Obama, she said, repeated Biden in his Middle East ‘listening tour’, adding that the Illinois Democrat’s message has been the government’s position almost consistently over the past few decades.

The three Taliban “Shura”, or councils, she added, are all in Pakistan – Quetta, Peshawar and Miramshah. The Shuras are benefiting from the “warm embrace of ISI,” she added.

“The United States has known this from day one.”

Logan further added that the United States’ combined Intel capabilities between Fort Meade, Md.-based National Security Administration and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency in Fort Belvoir, Va., Has always had the ability to monitor and collect data from around the world.

In this way, she noted how the Fed consistently discusses the humanitarian aspect of the southern border crisis and the collapse of Kabul:

“The amazing part for me is that when you hear this debate,” the intelligence services could not see this. “Seriously? The NSA is known as the crown jewel of intelligence gathering in the world. There is no digital signature that they do not collect and store and analyze and have algorithms and everything else to sort through,” she said.


“The idea that they missed this. You know what it takes to make 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 move .

“What they are not addressing right now [is] all over Al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorist literature and communication that they pick up celebrating [the collapse of Afghanistan] as a massive defeat. “

Logan argued that the NGIA, which controls government satellites and other armaments, has seen the Taliban take control of abandoned U.S. military equipment; bring it back to the east of Pakistan.

“NSA and [NGIA] see this happen in real time, ”she claimed.

“And they are doing nothing to stop it. Why not? So what the Afghans will tell you … is that the United States chose this result.”

“The US government could change this even today. And they do not. They do not use the leverage they have with Pakistan. They will give you 5,000 reasons, but it does not matter.”
