sir you are correct. it's much the same for al queda and bin laden. u.s. special forces trained and supplied them during russias war in afghanistan to repel the "communist scourge". manuel noriega, the list goes on. it seems to me u.s. policy tends to ignore future repurcussions in the interest of makin a couple of bucks. the all powerful u.s. omnipresent as always has managed to put some awfully charming people in power. seems to come back and bite us in the ass.
