The Global Research team pays tribute to Robert Parry and his unwavering commitment to independent and honest journalism. His legacy will live.
On January 1st, I sent a short note to Robert Parry. Today our thoughts are with Robert Parry and his family.
Robert Parry was a powerful voice, incisive in his analysis of complex foreign policy issues, with a longstanding commitment to peace and social justice.
Below is Robert Parry’s incisive and timely April 2013 article on Hollywood’s slanted interpretation of the Soviet Afghan war. The US supported “Freedom Fighters” were Al Qaeda. The Afghan Mujahideen were jihadist mercenaries recruited by the CIA. It was all for a good cause: destabilize a progressive secular government, occupy and destroy Afghanistan, undermine the Soviet Union.
