Dushanbe, (PNB NEWS). Ahmad Massoud met Erik Prince, the founder, and chief of the Blackwater, US private volunteer army unit in Dushanbe, a credible source informed Tehran Times.
Al Clark and Erik Prince established Blackwater on December 26, 1996, in North Carolina, to provide military and law enforcement training support. Blackwater is private America’s volunteer army unit.
Political analysts saw Massoud this action as a disaster for anti-Taliban fighters in Panjshir’s valley.
US intelligence said that CIA backed Ahmad Massoud fled to Tajikistan shortly after the Taliban seized control of the Panjshir.
Panjshir is one of Afghanistan’s thirty-four provinces, situated in the country’s northeastern corner.
There are 512 villages in the province, which are split into seven districts.
During the Taliban’s previous reign in Afghanistan, which lasted from 1996 to 2001, they were never able to rule the Panjshir valley.
From 1996 until 2001, Iran, Russia, the U.S, India, and NATO largely supported Ahmad Shah Massoud’s forces against the Taliban.
This time, without Iran, Russia, America, Blackwater, and NATO’s help, opposition forces crumbled like a house of cards in Panjshir.
Today, neither side is willing to assist opposition groups in their fight against the Taliban.
In the longest war in American history, the world’s most powerful and advanced forces have failed to defeat the Taliban.
