In Spain, investigative authorities found photos, names and data of elite soldiers from the Austrian fighter commando on an Afghan asylum seeker. They had trained government forces in Afghanistan to fight the radical Islamist Taliban. Now they are apparently hunting down the Austrians – in the middle of Europe.
how the courier on Sunday reported in an exclusive story, an unknown number of members of the Austrian armed forces are likely to be in mortal danger. Through their training activities in Afghanistan, they have apparently become targets for radical Islamists, who are now very likely to seek revenge.
An Afghan who was apprehended in Spain was carrying the name, photos and other data of two Jagdkommando trainers. It is unlikely that he wanted to establish a pen pal relationship with them. A total of nine army elite soldiers feel threatened by the situation. You have applied for a gun pass.
Secret data obtained through US withdrawal
The article also describes how the Afghans got hold of the data – and photos – of the Austrian soldiers. It is assumed that the Taliban regime “gained access to all secret files of the international operation”.
As usual, the Afghan asylum seeker was not arrested in Spain but is now at large at an unknown location. No one knows what terrorist plans he might be hatching at the moment. One thinks with horror of the terrorist attack in Vienna, which was made possible above all by the sloppiness of the ÖVP Ministry of the Interior under today’s Chancellor Karl Nehammer.
Trainers as popular terrorist targets
The trainers were already in particular danger to their lives in Afghanistan. Sleepers and agents among the trainee local forces could have carried out an assassination at any time. This is how the Kurier describes the practice of always providing an armed guard during shot training to protect the trainer, who can fend off “surprising attacks” – which would have been necessary on some occasions.
The Austrian government refuses to issue a weapon pass to those who are threatened in this way. This is the only way to legally carry a firearm to protect your own life. This also shows what the black-green federal government thinks of its own soldiers. Abroad, they are welcome to risk their lives for someone else’s cause, but they are not allowed to protect themselves and their families against the resulting dangers.
