How much did we divert to Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden back in the 70's-80's when it was fashionable among conservative republicans?

CIA provides it to them.
An invented enemy can't run a war without money. Can't expect Bin Laden to pay for everything.

Just because that's "the way its always been done," aint no good reason to keep doing it when it don't work.
I wasn't indicating it was ever a good idea, far from it. Just pointing out how we got to where we are currently. Unfortunately most peoples' nationalistic egos require repeating this over and over, so long as their party is running the show anyway.

And on that very topic, I thought I'd remind the Republican lovers that gates posted over in Econ to let everyone know that a certain party just filibustered the full disclosure of campaign contributions - shut it down.
It was the Republicans.
So the 'R's could sweep the House back, and I wonder exactly what is going to change? Bush started TARP, and R candidates are taking Wall St. money for their campaigns.
Who is going to change the status quo?
