Edward Snowden Reveals That The “ISIS Tunnels” That The US Just Bombed In Afghanistan Were Simply Tunnels Built By The CIA

By Theodore Shoebat

The US government just dropped the most destructive non-nuclear bomb its military has in it arsenal on Afghanistan. The bomb was supposedly dropped to destroy an “ISIS tunnel” system in the Achin district of the Nangarhar province in Afghanistan.

What is interesting is that it was in this very province where the CIA financed the construction of tunnel systems for the Taliban as a fortress in their fight against the Soviets. Edward Snowden has identified the “ISIS tunnels” as the same tunnels that the CIA financed, as he has revealed on his Twitter account:

On his tweet, Snowden linked to a 2005 New York Times article which reports on these tunnels in the Nangarhar province. I read through the report and found some interesting excerpts. In part of the report it says:

Rising to more than 13,000 feet, 35 miles southwest of the provincial capital of Jalalabad [capital city of Nangarhar], Tora Bora was a fortress of snow-capped peaks, steep valleys and fortified caves. Its miles of tunnels, bunkers and base camps, dug deeply into the steep rock walls, had been part of a C.I.A.-financed complex built for the mujahedeen.

The report goes on to talk about a mujahideen operative named Yunis Khalis, who was fighting the Soviets and who had received tremendous funds from the CIA:

Khalis, among the seven resistance leaders, would receive the third-largest share of the more than $3 billion of weapons and funds that the C.I.A. invested in the jihad.

 The author of the report, Mary Ann Weaver, recounts a conversation that she had with one mujahid named Masood Farivar in which he told her of how impenetrable these tunnels are when they endured the onslaught of the Soviets:

One evening earlier this summer, I asked Masood Farivar, a former Khalis officer who had fought in Tora Bora during the jihad, to tell me why the caves were so important. “They’re rugged, formidable and isolated,” he said. “If you know them, you can come and go with ease. But if you don’t, they’re a labyrinth that you can’t penetrate. They rise in some places to 14,000 feet, and for 10 years the Soviets pummeled them with everything they had, but to absolutely no avail. Another reason they’re so important is their proximity to the border and to Pakistan” — less than 20 miles away.

In a 2011 report published by The Guardian, it speaks of these CIA financed tunnels:

Osama bin Laden got to know the mujahideen leaders during the anti-Soviet jihad after traveling to Peshawar in 1980. Two years later, his construction company built tunnels in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan that the CIA helped him to finance and which he was later to use to escape US bombing after 9/11.

When I did research on these “ISIS tunnels” that the US supposedly bombed, I could not find any reports specifically on tunnels in Afghanistan ran by ISIS published before today. In other words, the only articles seen on these “ISIS tunnels” were published on the day the US dropped the bomb. However, I did find numerous reports on tunnels in Afghanistan being used by the Taliban.

It appears that these “ISIS fighters” in Afghanistan are just former members of the Taliban who have pledged allegiance to ISIS as a way to reenergize themselves. In one 2015 report we read:

experts say that the entities that now call themselves ISIS in Afghanistan are not fighters from Iraq or Syria. Rather, they’re primarily disaffected Taliban members and insurgents from other groups who seized an opportunity to “rebrand” themselves as ISIS.

Now there is fighting between Taliban fighters and those who owe their allegiances to ISIS. With the deal of the Taliban’s leader, Mullah Omar, there has been intense disagreement on whether or not the Taliban should enter into negotiations with the Afghan government. Those who refuse negotiating are claiming to be a part of the ISIS. “You have the leadership saying, well, it’s time to negotiate, time to look at peace” says Anand Gopal, and the other side is claiming, “‘We’re not the Taliban … we’re not going to enter these negotiations. We’re part of this global movement now that’s been so successful in Iraq and Syria.”

I suspect that this bombing of Afghanistan is simply a distraction from what the US is doing in, and planning on doing to, Syria.

    It could be a distraction. Maybe a statement to others saying ‘look what we can do to you’. The thing is though, I watched them drop this bomb by parachute. If they tried this in a country with any surface to air defence systems it isn’t happening. The plane and bomb on board will be toast.
    But not to worry. The all new Donald Trump says they aren’t going to invade Syria. Don’t you believe him? No, me neither. Not now!

    It was to show might and try to intimidate Russia. It did not take long to new Nero shows his claws. Lies, lies and more lies.

  • Because we are not Russians. We are Americans.

    What you propose here is like me telling you why don’t you move to Gaza.

    Has anyone thought about Snowden and Assange been the 2 witness of Revelation? they are bringing to lite the evil and lies of the Beast. Maybe they are front runners of the 2 witness which will be killed in Jerusalem.

    • Cuzick


      Have you read this yet ?

      • susan

        Exactly Cuzik! 😀

      • filomena seiffert

        I just said front runners of the 2 witness because they both are exposing the lies and evil of the beast. I read what you send me.

    • Are you serious?

      • filomena seiffert

        Just a thought as the front runners, not the actual witness.

        • The problem lies with a couple of things: the Two Witnesses are said to have power. Neither Snowden nor Assange have those power. Sure, they have helped exposed the corruption of the United States’ government, that part is undeniable.

          However, to expose the moral decay of sins? That power lies with the cooperation of the Church and the Holy Ghost.

          • Cuzick

            That’s talent, rowing wth one hand and responding in wisdom with the other.

          • It’s tough to multitask, I’ll tell you for sure. The wisdom I gain is through, I pray and hope, the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and experience. However, what also helps is jettisoning Protestant’s one dimensional thinking and applying a more Catholic-Orthodox thinking where Scripture are viewed in layers instead of in linear fashion, or as Walid likes to call it, flow-chart method.

          • So Trevor,

            How was it like for you to have taken your first [real] Communion?


          • Overwhelming. Humbling.

            When he placed the Bread in my hands, I could no longer hold back. Tears poured out of my eyes. I had been desirous of partaking of Christ’s Body and Blood for a long, long time.

            To receive it while on my knees was to be in the presence of the King who gave His life for a hypocritical wretch like me.

            It recalls why St. Paul solemnly said, “Do not use your freedom to indulge in the flesh.”

            Now I want to throw myself fully into the mystery of the Faith to become more involved with the Church.

            He’s handy with a toothbrush too.

          • Now how did I miss that? I must have worn out 20 toothbrush cleaning the deck. More bird droppings from chewing grasshoppers.

          • Grandmere

            Tell me she didn’t say they were the two. Oh Lordy!

          • I mean this whole time I was 100% convinced that the two witnesses is Trevor and 41.

  • susan

    “I suspect that this bombing of Afghanistan is simply a distraction from what the US is doing in, and planning on doing to, Syria.”

    I wonder how effective the bomb was…at either.

  • ” But seriously… Why stay in an evil protestant country when you could be so influential in Russia?”

    Because I am KGB. I am also Mossad.

    Therefore, how can I convert Protestants if I am in Russia?

    When it comes to American Protestants in Russia they too move to Russia to CONVERT the Orthodox. Yet you do not complain about these.

    Tell me then, where are all your comments to all these ministries to Russia? Why have thou not told THEM to get the hell out of Russia?

    Therefore, I am glad to be a KGB and also a Mossad, especially since Nazism is growing leaps and bounds throughout the west.

    Have you done anything to combat these? Or are you simply busy in hunting only the KGB and the Mossad while forgetting the Nazis?

    • Cuzick

      You forgot Jezzuit spy…

      • Shshshshs, no one is supposed to know about this secret.

      I’m glad he’s our president. And I’m especially glad our young men and women have a commander in chief who cares for them like i do.

  • Grace Ziem

    The intrigue of the military-industrial complex; using our money to build tunnels, later more money to blow them up. And deception to the people both times. Not much for me to feel pride in with this.

  • Grace Ziem

    You don’t understand the meaning of their caliphate agenda? Tried studying Islam? (Giant bombs won’t stop ISIS but Erdogan hopes it will help)

    I live in a communist ruled part of China when I could be striding like a colossus around the land of the brave and the home of the free, twirling my semi automatic, exercising my first amendment rights, and ridin’ along in my automobile every time the fancy takes me.
    You have a problem with that too?

    You know Art, you could join us in our efforts through Rescue Christians. We put our money where our mouth is and have rescued thousands of persecuted Christians. The people here work very hard. They don’t play at Christianity. And we prefer falafel to Cheetos.

    You got that right.

    I was thinking the same (NK)….not as a beta run, that’s more likely perhaps…i was thinking NK intimidation.

    Then again, it MIGHT even be a psy-op drop if u will (“for the US citizenry”)…u know, “acclimate/warm up the mind to coming nuke strikes”…I mean the 2 things we all now know about the bomb used is what??
    What its acronym is & means (‘M.O.A.B.’)… and,
    We all conveniently know that it’s the most powerful weapon in the arsenal before the nuke….well a 3rd thing would be that it’s never been used until now (which makes zero sense considering the “prior bombing of caves/mountains during Bush W’s dictatorship.”)…hell that’s what i remember most about the invasion.
    1 thing is certain…DECEPTION is increasing like never before ya.
