Here is what I found online, do you know anything about this?
Two US Presidents (Reagan and I think the other was Carter) gave support to the Mujihadeen, because they helped bring down Russia in the Cold War - and that was successful.
However, one Mujihadeen recruit was Osama bin Laden, and after the USSR fell we all know what happened next...
So, was US support for the Mujihadeen a mistake? What could the Presidents have done better? How does the world get itself out of these violent cycles?
