[Terroir-ism]
Juan Cole, Professor of History at the University of Michigan, has a very insightful photo essay about the history of the creation of Al Qaeda, the Taliban, America's training of Bin Laden, support for Saddam Hussein's gas attacks on Iranians, Saudi involvement and much more. It's a concise time-line of how the United States created the very enemies that are attacking us. One year these people are "Freedom fighters", the next they're "terrorists." One minute the U.S. is funding them; the next they're making back-room deals with their former allies' enemies and leaving them to die. Very interesting stuff. This isn't editorial -- these are the details that are regarded as factual issues leading up to the current situation.
