Is it true that the CIA actually created Osama Bin Laden and Al Queda?
CIA created al-Qaeda and gave $3 BILLION to Osama bin Laden
The US government trained, armed, funded and supported Osama bin Laden and his followers in Afghanistan during the cold war. With a huge investment of $3,000,000,000 (three billion US dollars), the CIA effectively created and nurtured bin Laden's al-Qaeda terrorist network using American tax-payers money. Afghanistan is one of the world's poorest countries, where such an enormous sum sum of money would have had extraordinary value.
BBC news article:
"...Bin Laden left Saudi Arabia in 1979 to fight
against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. The
Afghan jihad was backed with American dollars
and had the blessing of the governments of Saudi
Arabia and Pakistan. He received security
training from the CIA itself."

The CIA is good at manufacturing and prefabricating propaganda to support their twisted, demonic and diabolical agenda. Call it hypocritical, dishonest, yes it is that, but it seems to be working. Being gullible Americans actually seem to believe them, and everything they see on television in the USA.
The CIA currently have many initiatives underway to undermine Americans mentality and how they are globally see on the whole planet as being obese low educate under developed simplistic minded morons. Whether it be the feminist man hating agenda, homosexuals, gun reform or abortions etc. To keep Americans asking questions and stupidly USA USA patriotic, while committing corruption. Which makes Americans the laughing stock of the world, because they are doing this, right under your noses. Even foreign children in jest stick pillows in there tee shirts to look fat and act and talk like imbeciles, saying 'look were Americans'.
Americans don't realize their own US government monetarily supports, this propaganda, terrorism, darkness and evil. As a way to undermine countries and foreign citizens which try to live right and in peace, to not fall prey to these perverted groups that are CIA trained and monetarily funded by the United States government
The US government only claims they support democracy because it makes them look good in the world. But at the end of the day, they will do anything to control and subjugate other foreign nations.
American foreign policy is about empire building, and not about the spreading of democracy. In the 1800s, the Cherokee people established their own democracy in North American, but Washington made war and destroyed it. President Andrew Jackson crushed the Cherokee Nation. This event is well documented, within American history.
The true American version of bringing democracy is based on shoot first, ask questions later. Also using incarceration, torture, rape, assassinations, military drones, death squads, extortion, money laundering, corruption, bullying, removing foreign leaders and creating Marionette governments around the globe. When it comes to Uncle Sam's means of democracy, the list just goes on.
The US government and the media lie about most things and the irony is that the American sheeple believe everything that they are told. It's very disturbing how 8 out 10 Americans actually believe in angels, yet none of them ever believe how truly corrupt the CIA and US government are.

Yes. Just one more example that goes to show... many of our biggest problems, are problems that we only brought on to ourselves. Back when the CIA trained Osama Bin Laden, nobody even had any idea what our actions were getting ourselves into.
Our current occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan are only going to create a new generation of people in the Middle East angry at us. We don't even know the extent of what kind of future problems we're creating right now, with everything we do today.

During Reagan/Bush years, with Rumsfeld and Wolfowicz, Cheney and James Baker pulling the strings behind the scenes, 'tis true that our CIA actually trained a then-teenage Osama bin Laden to help go up against Russia. The crime-prone Bush family (see "The Bush Crime Family Tree" site) has been a long-time close and personal friend with the extended bin Laden family of Saudi Arabia, and GW is close buddies with Prince Bandar, a trained military pilot for the Saudi Army and also a loyalist to the bin Ladens and Saudi Arabia's royal familly---the same Prince Bandar whose wife laundered money through the Bush-family-run Riggs Bank for two of the 9/11 Saudi hijackers, oddly enough. The Bush family members involved with Riggs Bank (maternal uncle and cousin of GW, Wirt Walker I and Wirt Walker III, and his brother Marvin Bush) were and remain on the Board of Riggs Bank, and this same motley three also were principles (on the Board) for Securacom (named changed to Securatec, Inc. after 9/11), the firm that provided "security" for the World Trade Center, for United Airlines (two attack planes were United planes), and for Dulles International Airport from whence two 9/11 planes flew.
"Created" might not be the correct word, but "CIA-trained" is certainly true.

OSama Bin weighted down hated the us once he learned we were offering Iraq with weapons and armament within the 80s. He was pissed that we could do this type of factor. Best he was once imagined to be receiving hands from the U.S. Governement.

Yes it is 100% historical fact. Unsurprisingly, it is left out of most background information given by the mass media, but it is well documented in academia.
You could say that Osama bin Laden being armed and trained to fight against the Soviets backfired HORRIBLY once the Soviet Union broke down.

Yes, it's true. A case of "My enemy's enemy is my friend." It is all so easy to be a Monday morning quarterback, but even if we suspected the lurking danger of radical Islam at the time, it is probable that we would have chosen to deal with what was then the here and now. Islam had not threatened to "Bury us," the Soviet Union had.

What i read was that they trained terrorists to sneak box cutters and guns onto a plane. Started those wars to protect the investment.

The more I look into this stuff the more convinced I am that Bush had an idea that Bin Laden was going to attack
