Levin and other US Senators targeted with US Military Psy-Ops Effort in Afghanistan

February 24, 2011

On Monday, we reported on a talk given by Michigan Senator Carl Levin based on his 2-day trip to Afghanistan in January. Levin said that the US military occupation of Afghanistan was showing signs of progress.

Levin did mention in his talk that he met with US military leaders and some Michigan combat troops, but what Levin did not mention and probably did not know is that the US military was engaging on a psychological warfare campaign on him and other visiting US officials who came to Afghanistan for an update on the war.

According to an article by Michael Hastings in Rolling Stone magazine Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, a three-star general in charge of training Afghan troops, was charged with the psy-ops campaign. The Rolling Stone articles states that, “a military cell devoted to what is known as “information operations” at Camp Eggers in Kabul was repeatedly pressured to target visiting senators and other VIPs who met with Caldwell.

It appears that the US military is becoming more desperate in its attempt to win public opinion on the 10-year US occupation of Afghanistan. Rolling Stone Reporter Michael Hasting notes, “Those singled out in the campaign included senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman, Jack Reed, Al Franken and Carl Levin; Rep. Steve Israel of the House Appropriations Committee; Adm. Mike Mullen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; the Czech ambassador to Afghanistan; the German interior minister, and a host of influential think-tank analysts.”

This revelation certainly sheds light on the message that Levin delivered to people on Monday at the World Affairs Council hosted event and should give all of us additional cause for concern about what is really happening in the costly and brutal US occupation of Afghanistan.
