Reagan Called bin Laden "Moral Equivalent of Our Founding Fathers"

Anonymous Comrade writes: "There is an excellent lecture by the late Dr. Eqbal Ahmed entitled
"Terrorism: Theirs and Ours" on the A-Infos Radio Project:


The lecture was given shortly after the US embassy bombings in Africa,
which were attributed to Osama bin Laden. In the talk, Ahmed describes when
Osama bin Laden "was actually a guest in the Reagan White House" when the
US was funding bin Laden to fight the Red Army in Afganistan. He and
other Afghani "freedom fighters" were praised by Reagan during that visit
as "the moral equivalent of our founding fathers". Really damning stuff."
