The U.S. "helped create the problem we are now fighting" in Afghanistan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton opined in 2010. Clinton contended that the U.S., in the 1980's, supported the Mujahideen against the Soviet backed Communist regime in Afghanistan. The Mujahideen later morphed into Al Qaeda, which perpetrated the 9/11 attacks, which prompted the U.S-led Afghan war.
However, it should be noted that the U.S., back then in the 80's, had no way of knowing the Mujahideen would later turn against America. On the flip side, President Obama should have known - in 2011 - that the Al Qaeda affiliated rebels in Libya - that he supported - would eventually turn around and attack Americans in Benghazi, and that the rebel extremists would help facilitate attacks against Americans elsewhere - Algeria etc.
Clearly, Obama helped create/created the problems we are now facing in Libya, and the neighboring countries. But Hillary will never acknowledge this fact, nor will she ever acknowledge her role in creating these problems.
