US created Taliban and abandoned Pakistan. Hillary Clinton acknowledged that the United States too had a share in creating the problem that plagues Pakistan today.
problems we face now to some extent we have to take responsibility for, having contributed to it. We also have a history of kind of moving in and out of Pakistan, she said.

Lets remember here the people we are fighting today we funded them twenty years ago and we did it because we were locked in a struggle with the Soviet Union.

They invaded Afghanistan and we did not want to see them control Central Asia and we went to work and it was President Reagan in partnership with Congress led by Democrats who said you know what it sounds like a pretty good idea lets deal with the ISI and the Pakistan military and lets go recruit these mujahideen.

And great, let them come from Saudi Arabia and other countries, importing their Wahabi brand of Islam so that we can go beat the Soviet Union.

And guess what they (Soviets) retreated they lost billions of dollars and it led to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

So there is a very strong argument which is it wasnt a bad investment in terms of Soviet Union but lets be careful with what we sow because we will harvest

saint reagan helped create the taliban and osama bin laden. reagan fought a proxy war with the soviet union by training, arming, equipping, and funding islamist mujahidin fighters in afghanistan. reagan funneled billions of dollars, along with top-secret intelligence and sophisticated weaponry to these fighters through the pakistani intelligence service. The taliban and osama bin laden ó a prominent mujahidin commander ó emerged from these mujahidin groups reagan helped create, and U.S. policy towards pakistan remains strained because of the intelligence servicesí close relations to these fighters. In fact, Reaganís decision to continue the proxy war after the soviets were willing to retreat played a direct role in bin ladenís ascendancy.

Of course, none this appears in the reagan years re-write.

As a rational non-patriotic global citizen i am of the view that the whole system smells like the gutter/sewage.
As long as you uphold this rotten despicable system the problems will prevail

If i were Obama
i would have given a speech like this.
"Yes I had promised but failed.
Not because of my dreams but because the whole system is rotten to the core.
You had put me in a toilet house where i have no support"
