Oh and BTW, good.

If I am allowed to give a brief overview of this man, he was Bin Laden’s mentor, not the other way around.
He was involved with the group that assassinated Sadat in Egypt in 1981.
Later trying to ferment an uprising (or rather a second chance at the one he thought would happen after Sadat’s death 16 years before), as well as Algeria in the 1990’s.
Both failed but as far as he and now Bin Laden were concerned, it wasn’t their ideology that was flawed, the Muslim population in these and other nations were brainwashed by the West in general, the US in particular.
Therefore the adoption of the ‘far enemy’ strategy.
So snark away at this event but if you want to be partisan, who was in the WH when the event him and Bin Laden are most notorious for?
We know who ordered the offing of now both the number 1 and 2 of the organization that did it and a whole lot more.
Who let those thousands of Taliban out in 2020, then who had to try to clear up the mess?
On topic enough?
