    Is it no surprise that Ahmed shaw mousoud was assasinated two days prior to 9/11/2001?

    I didn't speak to OBL or al Qaeda in this. I was refereeing first to Carter and then to Reagan's policy of support for MILITANT ISLAMIC GROUPS, a policy that has carried through to the present, and is responsible for the chaos we have in the Middle East today. Lets keep on topic.

    And again, What Islamic militant groups have the US supported? The mess in the Middle East is not the fault of the US Government, and the mess in Afghanistan is not the US fault either (that fault lies withe the Soviet Union). Islamic militancy has been around forever. Read Thomas Jefferson's accounts of the Barbary pirates, and earlier than that. This is nothing new.
