Did Al-Qaeda Ever Exist?

Writer Arjun Walia is out with a brilliant new essay (see here). Walia cites recent revelations by the highest-level CIA agent in charge of the Osama Bin Laden unit.

The agent has now admitted that “Al-Qaeda” (which means “the base” in English) never existed! It was a CIA operation the entire time.

A number of intelligence analysts have suggested that “Al Queda” began as a CIA data base of known anti-Soviet muslim rebels in Afghanistan which were known operatives of western intelligence (‘the base’).
