An Unholy Alliance


This remarkable Australian production made in 1995 has not been seen on a wide scale in North America. We have been given permission by Essential Viewing, (the latest incarnation of Aspire Films), to share this 1 hour documentary in a scaled-down internet version.

This video features rare footage of the Mujahadin, and explores the murky relationship between drugs, war, the CIA, the Mujahadin, Pakistan's ISI, and the general milieu which gave birth to "Al Qaeda".


This film also explores the heroin trade during the Vietnam war, and features rare interviews with Alfred W. McCoy, Michael Levine, and the late, great Dr. Eqbal Ahmad. For more detail about the episode before you download, click here. A true podcast will follow, and this blog will be updated when it does.

To purchase a high-resolution version, send an email to: info@evg.com.au

WARNING:
This video depicts disturbing sequences of drug use and the effects of heroin abuse. By downloading, you agree to release 911blogger.com from any liability that may result from watching said video.

"An Unholy Alliance" available at 911podcasts here: http://www.911podcasts.com/display.php?vid=134.

A special thank you to Peter Scobie for making this happen.
