What Hillary was most likely going to say next, which is probably why she was cut off is that after we helped the Mujahidin expel Russia from Afghanistan we basically patted ourselves on the back and told the Mujahidin “good luck with that whole rebuilding your country thing.”
Without support the Mujahidin fractured into several factions, one of which became al Qaeda.
So in a sense yes we sort of had a hand in al Qaeda but it’s not nearly as cut and dried as the tinfoil hatters will have you believe.
It's all in the video TFH.
