Fundamental principle:  never trust anybody who claims
to know the will of God or anything else that is too
complex for anybody else to understand.    (02)

Reagan also funneled money through the CIA to support
Osama bin Laden in the fight against the Soviet Union
in Afghanistan.  He even sent money to the Taliban to
recruit and train more fighters against the USSR.    (04)

That was another example of people who thought that they
were doing what was right.  Things would have been far
better for the Afghan people, Pakistan, the US, the
Russian people, and the entire world if Reagan and the
CIA had done nothing.    (05)
