South Bend Welcomes Spook Mayor Back Home: What Have You Done For Us Lately, Pete?
Several dozen South Bend residents greeted Mayor Pete Buttigieg at the airport as he arrived back in town after a seven-month deployment to Afghanistan where he served as a naval intelligence officer as a unit of one. The public up there still hasn't figured out that the man they elected as mayor has likely been working for the CIA all along. This wasn't Buttigieg's first trip to Afghanistan. He worked there while he was employed by McKinsey & Co., a management strategy consulting firm renowned for employing covered CIA operatives. He also previously worked for The Cohen Group, which was founded by former U.S. Senator and Defense Secretary William Cohen.
South Bend residents should be asking just what the hell Buttigieg was doing in Afghanistan that was of any importance or value to the people back home. Publicly, he claimed his work involved targeting Afghanistan's drug traffickers. In his farewell address this past week, Afghanistan's outgoing president, Harmid Karzai, denounced the United States as a curse upon his country despite the more than one trillion dollars in military and financial aid spent there courtesy of the American taxpayers, not to mention the tens of thousands of American soldiers who were killed or wounded during our country's occupation of the God-forsaken land. Instead, Karzai praised China and Iran as his country's greatest allies. Karzai also offered praise for Japan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, India, South Korea and Germany. The departing president had not one word of praise for the United States.
The CIA openly admits that it delivered suitcases filled with millions of dollars of cash to Karzai and his cronies over the past several years. Billions more given to the country simply disappeared without a trace. Perhaps the only thing people on the streets of South Bend can see for our efforts there is the flood of heroin hitting the city's streets and elsewhere around Indiana and across this country since heroin production and exports from Afghanistan exploded during the American occupation with the assistance of our own government and, in particular, the CIA, which is probably the world's largest drug smuggler. Will anybody in the South Bend media bother to ask Buttigieg what he did in Afghanistan before patting him on the back for his service there? As his mother says, he can't discuss his work there because it's all classified.
