Even more bazaar is the name, "Al Qaeda" means "the base" if translated to english and look what I found on the net:
Shortly before his untimely death, former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook told the House of Commons that "Al Qaeda" is not really a terrorist group but a database of international mujaheddin and arms smugglers used by the CIA and Saudis to funnel guerrillas, arms, and money into Soviet-occupied Afghanistan. Courtesy of World Affairs, a journal based in New Delhi, WMR can bring you an important excerpt from an Apr.-Jun. 2004 article by Pierre-Henry Bunel, a former agent for French military intelligence.

So every time you hear the words, "Al Qaeda" go ahead and translate it to it's real meaning for more perspective of what is really going on. As with every war after the civil war, the Ruling Class has been both sides of the war to line their pockets with gold.

Talk about being had, most Americans have no clue how much wool has been pulled over their eyes to keep them from seeing the truth.

It is an accepted fact of the military logistics operation in Afghanistan that the US government funds the very forces American troops are fighting. And it is a deadly irony, because these funds add up to a huge amount of money for the Taliban. "It's a big part of their income," one of the top Afghan government security officials told The Nation in an interview. In fact, US military officials in Kabul estimate that a minimum of 10 percent of the Pentagon's logistics contracts--hundreds of millions of dollars--consists of payments to insurgents. "
