Know Your History
Ronald Reagan hosted the Taliban, the Islamic mujahideen, IN the White House in 1985. The Soviets at that time occupied Afghanistan.
Under Reagan, the CIA armed, financed & trained Osama Bin Laden and others to counter the Soviet influence then in the region.
Most Americans still do not realize (or remember) that the CIA supported & trained Osama Bin Laden & the mujahideen. They are, in part, an enemy of our own making.
Ronald Reagan said of the Taliban at the time (and I quote): "These gentlemen are the moral equivalent of America’s founding fathers."
People need to remember/learn what really happened in the 1980s and stop believing the mythology.
