Afghanistan:  Wikileaks revealed that the ‘Mother Of All Bombs’ targeted the Tora Bora caves that housed miles of tunnels, bunkers, and base camps, dug deeply into the steep, rock walls, that were built for the mujahedeen in the 1980s when they were fighting the Soviet occupation.  This complex was built by the Bin Laden family’s construction company and was financed by the CIA. 

Wikileaks: ‘Those Tunnels The U.S Is Bombing In Afghanistan? They Were Built By The CIA’

Wikileaks pointed out Thursday night that the tunnel network America just dropped the “mother of all bombs” on in Afghanistan was “built by the CIA.”

Whoops.

As the New York Times reported in 2005:

The first time bin Laden had seen the Tora Bora caves, he had been a young mujahedeen fighter and a recent university graduate with a degree in civil engineering. It had been some 20 years before, during Washington’s first Afghan war, the decade-long, C.I.A.-financed jihad of the 1980’s against the Soviet occupation. Rising to more than 13,000 feet, 35 miles southwest of the provincial capital of Jalalabad, Tora Bora was a fortress of snow-capped peaks, steep valleys and fortified caves. Its miles of tunnels, bunkers and base camps, dug deeply into the steep rock walls, had been part of a C.I.A.-financed complex built for the mujahedeen. Bin Laden had flown in dozens of bulldozers and other pieces of heavy equipment from his father’s construction empire, the Saudi Binladin Group, one of the most prosperous construction companies in Saudi Arabia and throughout the Persian Gulf. According to one frequently told story, bin Laden would drive one of the bulldozers himself across the precipitous mountain peaks, constructing defensive tunnels and storage depots.

Indeed, by December 2001, when the final battle of Tora Bora took place, the cave complex had been so refined that it was said to have its own ventilation system and a power system created by a series of hydroelectric generators; bin Laden is believed to have designed the latter. Tora Bora’s walls and the floors of its hundreds of rooms were finished and smooth and extended some 350 yards into the granite mountain that enveloped them.

The CIA money literally went to the Bin Laden family’s construction company, lol.
