How the CIA created Osama bin Laden http://www.greenleft.org.au/back/2001/465/465p15.htm In 1986, bin Laden brought heavy construction equipment from Saudi Arabia to Afghanistan. Using his extensive knowledge of construction techniques (he has a degree in civil engineering), he built ?raining camps? some dug deep into the sides of mountains, and built roads to reach them. These camps, now dubbed ?errorist universities?by Washington, were built in collaboration with the ISI and the CIA. The Afghan contra fighters, including the tens of thousands of mercenaries recruited and paid for by bin Laden, were armed by the CIA. Pakistan, the US and Britain provided military trainers. Tom Carew, a former British SAS soldier who secretly fought for the mujaheddin told the August 13, 2000, British Observer, ?he Americans were keen to teach the Afghans the techniques of urban terrorism ?car bombing and so on ?so that they could strike at the Russians in major towns ... Many of them are now using their knowledge and expertise to wage war on everything they hate.? Al Qaeda (the Base), bin Laden's organisation, was established in 1987-88 to run the camps and other business enterprises. It is a tightly-run capitalist holding company ?albeit one that integrates the operations of a mercenary force and related logistical services with ?egitimate?business operations. Bin Laden has simply continued to do the job he was asked to do in Afghanistan during the 1980s ?fund, feed and train mercenaries. All that has changed is his primary customer. Then it was the ISI and, behind the scenes, the CIA. Today, his services are utilised primarily by the reactionary Taliban regime. Bin Laden only became a ?errorist?in US eyes when he fell out with the Saudi royal family over its decision to allow more than 540,000 US troops to be stationed on Saudi soil following Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ AND THE MAYOR OF LONDON AGREES ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Decades of British and American intervention in the oil-rich Middle East motivated the London bombers, Ken Livingstone has suggested. The London mayor told BBC News he had no sympathy with the bombers and he opposed all violence. But he argued that the attacks would not have happened had Western powers left Arab nations free to decide their own affairs after World War I. Instead, they had often supported unsavoury governments in the region. Suicide bombers Mr Livingstone said he did not just denounce suicide bombers. He also denounced "those governments which use indiscriminate slaughter to advance their foreign policy, as we have occasionally seen with the Israeli government bombing areas from which a terrorist group will have come, irrespective of the casualties it inflicts, women, children and men". He continued: "Under foreign occupation and denied the right to vote, denied the right to run your own affairs, often denied the right to work for three generations, I suspect that if it had happened here in England, we would have produced a lot of suicide bombers ourselves." He replied: "I think you've just had 80 years of western intervention into predominantly Arab lands because of the western need for oil. "We've propped up unsavoury governments, we've overthrown ones we didn't consider sympathetic. "And I think the particular problem we have at the moment is that in the 1980s... the Americans recruited and trained Osama Bin Laden, taught him how to kill, to make bombs, and set him off to kill the Russians and drive them out of Afghanistan. "They didn't give any thought to the fact that once he'd done that he might turn on his creators
