Funding the Afghan Taliban

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. If there is even the smallest amount of truth in this report,it cannot be a surprise to anyone who has been there.As I haven't,I'd welcome other,more enlightened observations...
  2. For a long time there was a rumour the white fleet helicopters we use for logistics were paying the Taliban Council in Quetta for protection which would explain their lack of evasive flying.

    After the one was brought down in Sangin, maybe this was wrong, or Abdul is getting his arrse kicked for bringing down the wrong chopper.
  3. And contractors in Iraq weren't paying off the local militias either....

    Wonder if the SFO will investigate this one like they did the Saudi Tornado project if it is shown that British money is being used to pay off the Taliban? Doubt it.
