US ‘Created the Monster’ of Taliban, ISIS – Former Pentagon Official

  • Published on May 30, 2017
    Top military advisors in the Trump administration are calling for a surge of 3,000-5,000 troops in Afghanistan, upon which US-coalition forces unleashed 460 airstrikes last month, the highest number in nearly five years. In Iraq, their security forces still seem incapable of bringing peace to the troubled region, even after a US investment of $25 billion. Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof joins RT America’s Anya Parampil to discuss. He also reflects on the legacy of former US national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, who died on Friday, as the primary architect of the US policy of nurturing the Taliban as an anti-Soviet force.
