Al Qaeda

is not a homogeneous organization. I realize the US government sowed the seeds for the for the beginnings of the group in Afghanistan, in order to defeat the Soviets. To say that the Al Qaeda that our CIA trained is the same group that is in current day Afghanistan or Libya is a stretch. They are an opportunistic gang of thugs that will take money from whoever gives it to them. More like mercenaries than allies or enemies. Much like our own government. They support you when convienient and kill you when you don't coooperate.

But I do agree that the driving reason for the violence toward the US is because of US government violence toward the Middle East. It's not rocket science.
