Itís something of an urban myth that arms and training provided by America to the Mujahideen were later turned against America. Itís not true. The only way in which American aid to the Mujahideen contributed to later terrorist attacks is that it helped eliminate the Soviet enemy and left them looking for a new enemy.
And I hope this doesnít sound too callous, but even if Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, the Cole
and 9/11 are the price we paid for bringing an end to the Cold War... it was worth it.
