Members of Congress have expressed anxiety about U.S. government activities in Libya. Some have recalled that weapons provided by the U.S. and Saudis to mujahedeen fighting Soviet occupation forces in Afghanistan in the 1980s later ended up in the hands of anti-American militants.
Funny how they buried that at the end of that article. But even so they left out the most important effect of that action in the 1980s: UBL and al Qaida. And aside from the fact that our former friends could again become our current friends, are we spawning the next AQ here?
