What made him this beast? Maybe here's an explanation?

"In the twilight of the Cold War, the United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings, part of covert attempts to spur resistance to the Soviet occupation. The "Primers", which were filled with talk of jihad and featured drawings of guns, bullets, soldiers and mines, have served since then as the Afghan school system's core curriculum. Even the Taliban used the American-produced books, though the radical movement scratched out human faces in keeping with its strict fundamentalist code."

Unless it can be proven to be fact, I will be highly skeptical that the Paki soldier in the picture is really Bin Laden. Note that the soldier is sporting a parachutist badge, and is part of a regular Paki unit. Ben Laden is not a citizen of Pakistan. Also, there are thousands of ugly, skinny and tall muslims out there, who look like 'you know who'.

What's your problem with that pic of Brzezinski with bin Laden? Don't you like to remember that you installed your boy Bin Laden to fight against the Russians in Afghanistan, and would later spread Islamic terror to the Central Asian Soviet Republics? And that you stirred up and financed this whole Islamic terrorism in general?
