"Afghanistan Papers" reveals extent of corruption and lies behind 18-year war

http://www.milwaukeeindependent.com/syndicated/afghanistan-papers-new-investigation-reveals-public-deception-campaign-u-s-officials/
>A major “Washington Post” investigation released on December 9 is a confirmation of the peace movement’s message that “there’s no military solution in Afghanistan.”

>That assessment is according to Paul Kawika Martin, senior director of policy and political affairs at Peace Action, replying to The Afghanistan Papers. The report exposes how top officials spanning the George W. Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations waged a deliberate misinformation campaign to conceal the total failures of the 18-year war in Afghanistan.

>The bombshell from investigative reporter Craig Whitlock “broadly resembles the Pentagon Papers,” and it is based on over 2,000 pages of notes from interviews with a federal agency that “bring into sharp relief the core failings of the war that persist to this day” and belie comments by officials “who assured Americans year after year” of progress made in the war.

>The paper obtained the cache of documents following a legal battle that lasted three years and included two lawsuits. The documents came out of a project from the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), an agency now headed by Obama-appointee John Sopko. That project, entitled Lessons Learned, was meant to assess “the U.S. reconstruction experience in Afghanistan.”

>They revealed that officials continually misled the public about the war’s success, there was no strategy, their efforts fueled corruption, and the U.S. was clearly losing ground as well as tens of thousands of lives and at least $1 trillion.

>The trove includes transcripts and notes from over 400 interviewers between 2014 and 2018. SIGAR blacked out names of roughly 85 percent of interviewees.

>“It was impossible to create good metrics” about the troop surge, one unnamed senior National Security Council official said in a 2016 interview. “We tried using troop numbers trained, violence levels, control of territory and none of it painted an accurate picture.” They added, “The metrics were always manipulated for the duration of the war.”

>Ryan Crocker, who was the top U.S. diplomat in Kabul from 2011 to 2012, said in a 2016 interview, “Our biggest single project, sadly and inadvertently, of course, may have been the development of mass corruption.”

Americans hate freedom with a passion and beg for their chains.

If our overlords decreed that everyone must buy a new snowblower this year, Americans would agree that the law makes sense and must be obeyed.

When guns are banned, Americans will scream with delight.

If Americans are forced to get microchip implants, Americans would fight to be first in line.

When Americans get sent to the concentration camps, they will insist that they live in a free country as they get pushed into the ovens.

The mixed the economy is a least awful solution. The problem is like any system it destabilises as someone accumulates power and starts using that to gain more power and change the rules in other subsystems and soon it snowballs. This is what we're witnessing. Other systems like capitalism and communism tend to spread the power less thinly to start with so they go down the shitter quicker. This is because some people will play the system whatever it is, against its intentions and values but within the rules. It's human nature to fuck shit up.

The solution a mix of safeguards and easy distribution. We cannot fix the cause we can only make it as easy and non disruptive as possible to fix the symptoms. Breaking up the behemoths is the solution but we need to take it further. We need a structure that lets us do this easy and to do the same to political parties and more. We need to to make it as hard as possible to reach that point so it needs doing less. I don't know the answer (I know a few things that will help though, they are obvious and of course and easy but will likely require upheaval to implement because how much push back would lobbyists make if we got on with crippling lobbying) but it seems a more realistic direction to take society in rather than the tug of war between capitalism and communism which both have beautiful ideas at their hearts and terrible results in reality. The happiest place on earth is of course Scandanavia.

>A US police officer who was fired after shooting dead an unarmed man was temporarily rehired so he could apply for a pension, local media report.

Warning, don't watch my OP webm if you don't want bad vibes. The man behind the gun was fired from the Mesa PD and later acquitted of murder charges. He was then re-hired for a period of 42 days so that he could submit an application for medical retirement based on accidental disability, namely PTSD from the murder in webm related, thereby qualifying him for a lifetime monthly pension if approved.

As a resident of Arizona this case shocked me, as did the footage, and as soon as this scumbag's pic popped up in the news I recognized him. It was in fact the OP image I used when I made the original thread about this incident.

It just goes to show that once again the rules do not apply to those with power, or those they favor.

Truly disgusting and abhorrent. I am very upset by this.

>During a press conference, Corbyn said the Trump administration's negotiators are "demanding" that the NHS be put "on the table" in talks over a possible post-Brexit trade pact between the U.S. and U.K.

>"That could lead to runaway privatization of our health service," said Corbyn. "Mega-corporations see Johnson's alliance with Trump as a chance to make billions from the illness and sickness of people in this country.

re: my views
I do recognize the root cause of the current worldwide economic and social problems to be the lack of direct access to resources and automation for the general population. And I do think that plain and boring government regulations can be effective to address these problems.
If it were up to me I'd introduce a proposal that would mandate that every technological product in use by a public institution be it software, hardware or wetware must be under a copyleft license.
For the second part of the equation, interestingly Hong Kong is an example that takes an interesting approach. Land is owned by the public and it is leased to private entities. Now in the case of HK that's very capital centric, but it doesn't have to be.

>Increasing costs of living amidst stagnant take home pay, and deteriorating standards of living amidst stagnant economic growth, are irrelevant in the west now? News to me.
Similar symptoms, yes but not necessarily the same intermediate causes. I do admit I am not familiar enough with the economic situation in HK.
I'm sure the housing shortage and work prospects for the current generation are a catalyst. But my point was more about the reason for the protest in general.
And that's certainly about human rights, something we can for granted in comparison to the Hong Kongers.

>The spaces have gentle names: The reflection room. The cool-down room. The calming room. The quiet room.

>But shut inside them, in public schools across the state, children as young as 5 wail for their parents, scream in anger and beg to be let out.

>The students, most of them with disabilities, scratch the windows or tear at the padded walls. They throw their bodies against locked doors. They wet their pants. Some children spend hours inside these rooms, missing class time. Through it all, adults stay outside the door, writing down what happens.

>Children were sent to isolation after refusing to do classwork, for swearing, for spilling milk, for throwing Legos. School employees use isolated timeout for convenience, out of frustration or as punishment, sometimes referring to it as “serving time.”

>The Tribune/ProPublica Illinois investigation, which also included more than 120 interviews with parents, children and school officials, provides the first in-depth examination of this practice in Illinois.

>In the nearly 50,000 pages of reports reporters reviewed about Illinois students in
seclusion, school workers often keep watch over children who are clearly in distress. They dutifully document kids urinating and spitting in fear or anger and then being ordered to wipe the walls clean and mop the floors.

>Records and interviews show how seclusion can harm children. Students ripped their fingernails or bruised their knuckles hitting the door. Their hands swelled and bled from beating the walls. In some cases, children were hurt so badly that ambulances were called.

>Several parents said their children became afraid of school. Some said their children didn’t want to sleep alone. Other families said the rooms were so distressing that their children would not talk about them.

>Even preschool children spent time in isolated timeout, records show.

>Caracas, September 25, 2019 (venezuelanalysis.com) - Self-proclaimed “Interim President” Juan Guaido and the Venezuelan opposition have been given US $52 million by the Trump administration.

>According to a Tuesday statement from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the funding will be destined for independent media, civil society, the health sector and the opposition-controlled National Assembly.

>In addition, USAID administrator Mark Green announced on Wednesday that the US will commit $36 million in aid to Venezuela, as part of a relief program led by the United Nations. It is not clear at the present time whether this sum is part of the $52 million or an additional disbursement.

>The Trump administration had previously diverted over $40 million in aid destined for Central America to fund the Venezuelan opposition. According to a USAID memo seen by the LA Times, the money was destined for salaries, airfare, training, propaganda, among other budget items.

>Guaido proclaimed himself president in January and has since led several attempts to oust the Maduro government, including a failed military putsch on April 30.

>The new aid package dovetails with a fresh round of US sanctions against Venezuela’s oil sector.

USA spent decades trying to ruin Venezuela. Only reason they had more success is pressuring Saudi to sell their oil for loss which is what real thing destroyed Venezuelan economy. Fat retarded burgers won't know such thing. Venezuela was doing very well until their economy was targeted not even by sanction but by KSA dumping oil flooding market. It's what truly fucked Russian economy too because both are large petrostates. Also, because Venezuela lost competent strong man like Chavez. I not saying, oh Maduro so bad, but Maduro is not Chavez and allowed himself to become weak against massive superpower enemy that been trying to fuck Venezualan people for decades and made mistake not taking oil money to invest and diversify industry fast enough. Socialism and march to Communism is proven only way poor countries have even fighting chance against evil US machinations. Just ask Vietnam. Vietnam now very fine country despite fighting full brunt of super rich superpower of 300 million people trying so hard to destroy them.

Venezuala wasn't fucked by the Saudis dumping, they were fucked by their product losing its entire market

not all oil is the same, theirs is extremely heavy oilsands that are hard to process, the only refineries specialized to handle it are in the american gulf coast, when the fracking explosion glutted the american domestic market and they became an energy secure oil exporter they stopped buying it
they don't have any customers, Chinese, Japanese and European refineries can't even profitably handle their product

the Saudi dumping was an attempt to shut down the american fracking boom, which if it had worked would have helped Venezuela, but it really spectacularly backfired instead

Corruption and Exploitation in America's Prison-Industrial Complex

https://reason.com/2019/11/22/west-virginia-inmates-will-be-charged-by-the-minute-to-read-e-books-on-tablets/
People who have been incarcerated in West Virginia prisons will soon be charged $3 an hour just to read books, and $15 an hour for video visitation with their families. For a bit of context, prisoners in West Virginia are paid anywhere between 4 and 58 CENTS an hour for their labor.

How is this possible? Well, the inmates have all been given free electronic tablets that ostensibly can be used to read books, send emails, and communicate with their families. But according to a 2019 contract between the West Virginia Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation (WVDCR) and Global Tel Link (GTL), the company that is providing electronic multimedia tablets to 10 West Virginia prisons, using the tablets to read books, listen to music, or play games will cost $3 per hour (or $0.05 per minute); using them to conduct video visitations will cost $15 per hour (or $0.25 per minute); and using them to send written messages will cost $0.25 per message, plus an additional $0.50 to send a photo with a message.

And dont forget, those books that inmates are being charged $3/hour to read? Every single one of them comes from Project Gutenberg, a free online library of more than 60,000 texts in the public domain. And according to the aforementioned contract, the WVDCR will receive a 5% commission on gross revenue from the tablets. A WVDCR spokesperson claims that no inmates are being forced to use the tablets and the 5% commission will go toward a fund at each of their prisons that inmates "use for such things as paying for cable TV and hosting open house visitation events for families."

At the moment, it seems the prisons are not restricting outright purchases or donations of regular print books. But from what I can tell, there is no library-esque system in place where inmates can borrow books and then return them either at a set time or once they have finished reading them. And here's the other thing: there's been a troubling trend in other parts of the country of prisons restricting book donations and forcing inmates to purchase books through pre-approved vendors or to use electronic tablets provided by private contractors like GTL and JPay. Earlier this year, Book Riot reported that numerous Ohio prisons were banning book donations by groups like Appalachian Prison Book Project. Amid media scrutiny, the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRC) announced it would lift the bans for third-party book donations, but family members are still banned from sending print material. In at least one Ohio prison, family members must put money into the inmate's account so they can order it themselves. JPay, which handles money transfers for the Ohio prison system, takes a cut on all deposits. Oh yeah, and the director of the ODRC just happens to be the former general manager of JPay.

Meanwhile, Pennsylvania, Washington, and three prisons in New York all attempted similar bans on donations of used books to inmates, then relented under citizen pressure. The prisons cited security concerns over contraband, but news investigations showed there was little actual evidence of smuggling via donated dictionaries. And last year, after Florida inked a new contract with JPay to provide multimedia tablets to inmates, inmates were forced to return MP3 players they had purchased through the state's previous provider, losing all the tracks they had purchased as well. I think there's a word for that, what is it again....uhhhh oh yeah, THEFT!

But wait, theres more! Pennsylvania also pays a private contractor $4 million a year for digitized mail services, where letters to inmates are scanned and sent to inmates as black and white photocopies while the original letters are destroyed and in 2017, the WVDCR also instituted a policy barring inmates from receiving their original mail. Isnt opening other peoples' mail a felony offense? I guess it's okay when the Prison-Industrial Complex does it!

And of course, with all this in mind, I dont think I need to remind you all of the...interesting statistics regarding the incarceration rate of poorer, nonwhite people in the USA versus that of richer, white people....

When you have a government contract you're goal is never to deliver a good product, it's to grease the wheels of the right people to get that contract renewed.

That's why America has military equipment that kills it's own soldiers, schools that don't educate and prisons that don't rehabilitate.

Turning prisoners to slaves is the direct result of making imprisonment a capitalistic structure.

Looks like the war drums are fueling up again for more never-ending wars against the middle east. No surprise since the US has been wanting to go after Iran for a long time. This is a bunch of bullshit.

I like you, China. You might be a spammer, but you're alright. I mean, I really don't disagree with a lot of what you say. Bot or human, no difference to me, you da man. I'm going to make a point to converse with you on the regular.

What do we do? How can we help? This is one of the Earth's greatest ecosystems, there must be something non-brazilians can do besides "send prayers".

Two major claims in the documents are that US officials manipulated statistics to suggest to the American public that the war was being won and that successive administrations turned a blind eye to widespread corruption among Afghan officials, allowing the theft of US aid with impunity.

The papers depict the view of many people of a conflict with vague and unachievable war aims, pursued under three US presidents, George W Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump, whose alleged successes were presented repeatedly in inflated terms.

The Taliban know what the fuck they're doing and the Kabul government is so ridiculously corrupt and incompetent that they would collapse on the day we left. And we should leave, and we should let the Taliban control Afghanistan, and we should let some other country, probably China, worry about that fucking place. It's a big sunk cost fallacy now keeping any American troops there.

And American troops still die there fruitlessly. Two SEALs who were alumni of my high school got killed when a jury rigged Taliban anti-air system hit their helicopter and brought it down. Had to have a whole ass assembly for them, it was ridiculous.

And we keep shoveling more and more in. People actually thought that this time it would be different but the same people keep doing the same things, the same reps keep voting the same ways. Loads and loads of people got absolutely tricked.
