Osama bin Laden was NEVER supported by the CIA or in any other way by the United States. That oft repeated parrot call has even made its way into a few books, unfortunately. Bin Laden himself started a boycott of all things American in 1982 and would not have accepted American help even if they wanted to help him. What little involvement the US had in Afghanistan was through the Pakistani ISI who had sole discretion of dispursing funds and equipment. It is apparent that they got a hold of stinger missiles through this indirect channel. Those with an unhealthy taste for the ironic have to stop spreading this falsehood.
