al Qaeda didn’t follow the Russians home from Afghanistan

just sayin….

Osama bin Laden got his start helping to boot the Ruskies out of Afghanistan back in the late 90’s. Last time I checked, he and al Qaeda didn’t follow the Russians home. And Russia was a lot closer to Afghanistan than we are to Iraq.

One response to “al Qaeda didn’t follow the Russians home from Afghanistan

    Al Qaida didn’t follow the Russians home because Al Qaida didn’t exist in 1989. It was the Taliban who fought the Russians. Al Qaida was formed as a reaction to the American presence in Saudi Arabia during and after Desert Storm and the Taliban offered them a safe haven. It is good to have the facts straight, though uninformed opinions are always more fun.
