Gerald Posner has private cell number of Afghanistan's leader's brother - accused of CIA ties
Early Wednesday morning at nearly 1:00 A.M., I checked my email for a final time and saw notice of a newsbreak from The New York Times that Ahmed Wali Karzai, the brother of the Afghan president and the man often called the Pablo Escobar of the country’s heroin trade, has been on a CIA payroll for the past eight years. I immediately called him.Hmmm. How would Gerald Posner get the private cell number of the brother of the so-called President in Afghanistan if not through a contact at CIA?
I reached him on his private cell number. When I asked if he had seen The Times story, he seemed surprised. His Internet access was down.
So a guy who claims not to be CIA but shows remarkable CIA access (Posner) calls another guy accused of working with the CIA (Karzai), and Posner uses their subsequent conversation to attempt to prove Karzai is NOT working with the CIA?
Can we say "implausible denial" here?
Sheesh, Gerald. I had given you more credit than that. Try not to be so open about your love affair with the agency next time, okay?
And Keith Olbermann - why do you have this guy on your show? He's a joke, to those of us who know a little something about history. Perhaps that's the price for being able to do your special comments now and then?
