A conspiracy theory verified? If so?

One conspiracy theory it appears has legs: a pipeline through Afghanistan being a cause for war:

Last week, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Richard Boucher said the U.S. government has a ?fundamental strategic interest? in Afghanistan that goes well beyond ensuring it is not used as a launching pad for terrorism, which was the original justification for the UN-sanctioned NATO mission of which Canada is a part."

Has the pipeline being a prime cause of Operation Enduring Freedom - Afghanistan been verified? If so, should this question be presented to Canadians for their consideration: in that a commercial venture is in process should


the task of providing the conditions for its success, making "the path free of Taliban influence", be that of Canadian Forces ?
