SHOCKING CLAIM: US considered nuking Afghanistan after 9/11 – German diplomat
A nuclear strike against Afghanistan was on the table in Washington in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, a senior German diplomat told Spiegel magazine.
Michael Steiner, the current German ambassador to India, served as foreign and security policy aide to then-German Chancellor Gerhard Schroder at the time of the 9/11 attacks.
“The papers were written,” he said, confirming that the nuclear option was under consideration. “They had really played through all possibilities.”
