Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
People need to do some research - not even complicated research, just basic. It's like they have their fingers in their ears and are shouting la la la half the time. How many wars is it going to take before the American people wake the hell up?
ISIS is along a similar vein. Most of its top people were former lackies of the CIA. Both the Mujahideen and ISIS members were originally supposed to serve as a buffer against the Soviets and keep Iran in check.
You seriously think that ISIS just appeared out of nowhere, and is able to battle the American army with a bunch of rag tag tribal infantrymen and some former Iraqi soldiers?
Please pick up a book before you choose to make incorrect assertions out of some misguided sense of nationalistic pride. Your government is lying by omission and not very well anymore I might add.

You can keep claiming it's a lie but it never will be. The U.S. doesn't even deny that it funded Mujahideen, just that it didn't fund ones non-native to Afghanistan. The truth is that it doesn't matter either way, because even if they only trained the native tribalmen, that training would still proliferate outward. You can't just give that expertise and weaponry to a region that has never had it before, and expect it to stay confined to your designated group. Nobody is that bloody stupid in government. They knew what they were doing.
Besides, the Saudi connection is well known, and we all know the U.S. has been in bed with the fascist Saudi regime for decades.
