    When US Rep Charlie Wilson took it upon himself to recruit fighters to repel the Soviets back in the '80s, bin Laden was among the volunteers. He met Al-Zawahiri and was radicalized.

    After the Soviets withdrew, we just came back home, leaving Afghanistan to recover on its own, and resulting in the Taliban.

    A lot has changed since then, of course, but many more could die, given the circumstances.

    Tragic.
