Clinton: we 'helped to create the problem we are now fighting' in Afghanistan
Hilary Clinton has made a rather shocking admission during an interview with Fox News's Greta Van Susteren:
"To be fair, we had helped to create the problem we are now fighting. Because when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, we had this brilliant idea that we were gona come to Pakistan, and create a force of Mujahaddin, equip them with stinger missiles and everything else to go after the Soviets inside of Afghanistan...and we were successful, the Soviets left Afghanistan, and we said, great, goodbye, leaving these trained people who were fanatical in Afghanistan and Pakistan, leaving them well-armed, creating a mess frankly, that at the time we really didn't recognize, we were just so happy to see the Soviet Union fall, and we thought ok fine, we're ok now, everything's going to be so much better. Now you look back, the people we're fighting today, we were supporting in the fight against the Soviets."
