The US creating Al Qaeda is unquestionable

We funded, trained, and provided weapons for the Mujahideen. This was an attempt to fight off forces in the Middle East without the US actually being involved.

The members of the Mujahideen eventually all quit and joined Al Qaeda - bringing with them everything we had originally provided to the Mujahideen, including knowledge and skills.
