While the vast majority of this book examine Taliban narratives and associated stories, the chapter focuses on the propaganda of Hezb-e-Islami (Gulbuddin) and its variety of IO delivery mechanisms: Oqab (Eagle) Website; EID messages, printed media (Shahadat – Martyrdom; Tanweer – Enlightenment), internet and social media, DVDs and videos. The major themes of HIG’s propaganda include: exploiting collateral damage by the U.S. Coalition, HIG’s inevitable victory, permanent of coalition military bases in Afghanistan, fraudulent Afghan elections, and a HIG peace proposal. The chapter also assesses the very significant role of Pakistan in the development of HIG narratives and associated stories.
