U.S.-Taliban Secret Oil Diplomacy and the Failed Hunt for Bin LadenBook - 2002
The result of three years of investigation by a leading French investigative journalist and an intelligence expert, Forbidden Truth is the untold story of the Clinton and Bush administration's attempts to stabilize Afghanistan and make it safe for US energy companies to build a pipeline through it. In particular, it details the secret diplomacy between the Bush administration and the Taliban between February and August 2001, talks that ultimately led the US to make threats that may have helped stoke the horrifying attacks on New York and Washington on September 11, 2001.
