    Not the United States.

    Next time I suggest that you learn something about Bin Laden before you make these stupid assumptions.

    What's next? Are you going to repeat the stupid claims that we "armed Saddam" or "supported the Taliban?"

    The US of course! Osama Bin Laden has never been what Bush told us he was. He was/is a friend of Bush and Bush helped his family out of this country during the "no fly" time after 9/11. I think they were in it together to pull off 9/11.

    It is discusting!

    OSama Bin weighted down hated u . s . a . of america as quickly as he found out we've been presenting Iraq with weapons and armament interior the 80s. He became pissed that we could do considered one of those component. purely he became meant to be receiving arms from the U. S. governement.

    we did "arm saddam" and we did "support the taliban" although in supporting the taliban the only major support we gave was giving them money to eradicate their opium (no large shipments of arms like to saddam).

    you should form your opinion around the facts, not the other way around.

    by the way, every time you use a gallon of gas, you're supporting other reactionaries that are way more dangerous than osama. a true patriot is willing to make a sacrifice for his country.

    Oh wait... oh wait... This means the U.S. is responsible for the extremist views of Osama bin Laden and his desire to destroy the Western World!

    Twisted logic.

    I supported humanitarian Aid, not stinger missiles which they have used for reverse technology!!

    We support every Terrorist and Fascist who comes along, then end up speeding more on getting then out than we did on aid,

    Oh I know, weapons are sold to everyone by us!!

    we did, of course. why do Ameicans refer to the "U.S." when they should say, "it was us?" there is personal responsibility in allowing a purportedly elected government to do whatever half a dozen rich guys feel like doing.

    No-one, he used cash embezzled from his father's contracting company.
