Al Qaeda Is a Construct of FBI and U.S. Prosecutors

As backdrop accentuating the absurdity of Barack Obama's decision to escalate the execution of war crimes in Afghanistan, this portion of BBC's "Power of Nightmares" traces the origins of the group eventually labeled "Al Qaeda". Making war against ideas like "Terrorism" comes full circle when a facetious label is used to describe a group that initially never existed. "Al Qaeda" was a name generated by one false witness for the FBI to enable prosecution of Bin Laden for the embassy bombings in East Africa. Later, Arabs that took up arms to fight the U.S. invasion in Afghanistan and Iraq were often linked with this fabricated group, "Al Qaeda".
