Saudi Arabia, US teamed up to invent Takfirism: Book
The United States teamed up with Saudi Arabia in the 1990s to conceive Takfirism, says former CIA officer Robert Baer in his book.
In his 2003 book, Sleeping with the Devil, Baer traces the Saudi government’s finance of Takfiri terrorism in Chechnya.
“After I left the CIA, I found my answer in a batch of Russian intelligence reports that drew a convincingly direct link between the Saudi government and the Chechen rebels. It was not a question of Saudi charity money finding its way to the Chechens,” writes Baer.
In June 1998, he said, forty Chechens were “quietly brought to a secret military camp located seventy-five miles southeast of Riyadh” to undergo military training for four months.
“A lot of time was set aside for indoctrination into Wahhabi Islam. [Prince] Salman, the governor of Riyadh and the full brother of [then Saudi ruler] King Fahd, was the camp’s sponsor,” writes Baer.
Baer, who spent 21 years with the Central Intelligence Agency, said Saudi Arabia was “directly sponsoring terrorism.”
He noted that the money US pays for crude oil supplied by Saudi Arabia serves terrorist activities.
“For American arms makers, Saudi Arabia is an industry subsector all its own, with its own peculiar rules. We buy oil from Saudi Arabia, refine it, and put it in our automobiles, and a certain small percentage of what we pay for it ends up funding terrorist acts against America and American institutions at home and abroad,” wrote Baer.
He said the center of the global economy is a “kingdom built on thievery, one that nurtures terrorism, destroys any possibility of a middle class based on property rights, and promotes slavery and prostitution.”
Baer makes it clear in the book that the US has ignored Saudi Arabia’s support for terrorist groups like al-Qaeda in a bid to keep business afloat with the oil-rich monarchy.
He referred to the 9/11 attacks in the US, saying the wife of then Saudi Ambassador to the US Prince Bandar bin Sultan had been sending money to the plane hijackers.
“One report sent to the United Nations Security Council indicated that Saudi Arabia transferred half a billion dollars to al-Qaeda in the ten years beginning 1992. Old assumptions are off the table. And the new realities are far from comforting,” wrote Baer.

US forces neither won the war in Iraq or in Afghanistan Nor it has lost the war.
USA has definitely wasted thousands of its soldiers, and five to ten times soldiers lost their limbs and are disabled for rest of their lives.
USA also lost trillions of dollars in wars and made USA in debt of China. This is shameful for USA. Now US government is cutting down number of soldiers in Navy, Army, and Air force to cut expenses of having large forces to be present in all seas and foreign lands. USA will certainly avoid to get into wars in future for many years or decades to come and concentrate on economic developments to provide jobs to Americans and spend more money on education and training of unemployed people to make them able to work in new industries.

But whose financial supports do the mujahideens from?
Maybe from USA, Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, etc.
Mujahideens are being used by their foreign government sponsors whose motive is LAND GREED. They are being USED to help foreign governments covet lands and their riches beneath.
Americans once sponsored Talibans, al-Qaeda, etc in the earlier decades and helped them grow in size. It was to help them fight against Russians in Chechnya. Now that Russia and USA are at peace with each other, Americans realise their mistakes of having had supported Talibans and suchlike, and now they are trying to get rid of them.
@Abdulmalik, LMAO, that is so rich from you. You quoted: "... As a result, many Muslims retuned to their Religion in a better way, and many non-Muslims accepted Islam. ..."
You are very funny. You are one exception who hasn't yet returned to Islam, unless you are a part-time Muslim or an occassional Muslim or maybe a seasonal Muslim. As to "Democracy" and "Freedom", you abuse your freedom on vices. Oooh boy, I have heard too much about you from your poor victims, namely young Muslimahs.
How is your hobby video voyeurism going? Be honest with number please, how many naive girls have you asked to strip for you on cam, all those poor lovesick girls that you had pushed them to prove their love to you? Abdulmalik, you are truly sick and you need help.

"Stop oppressing your own people!"
See the pathetic fool!
Us saves from oppression, and generously does this by killing several thousand civilians where it goes to save them from oppression.
And it also went into Afghanistan to save people from terrorism? and from Shariah?
however, the same America is long term friends with Saudis who ban women driving (as reported by their agencies)
Why is that?

The underground Christians church does have ex-Taliban members so no, the US has not lost the war.

A pointless exercise by both US and GB Afghanistans will just carry on killing each other regardless.

U.S. would not lose; however, if we do not like the idea or the objective is filled to near completion, we would just back out. Stop oppressing your own people!
