US Responsible for Surge of Al-Qaeda in Middle East

“The Shiite-Sunni sectarian conflict that Bush and his neocon advisers stirred up by invading Iraq in 2003 has now engulfed the entire region and has given Al-Qaeda and its affiliates footholds in countries where they hadn’t existed before the Iraq War,” Robert Parry said in an article for Consortiumnews.

He added that the invasion of Bush to Iraq in 2003 destroyed the balance that existed between Sunni and Shiite and helped to the expansion of Al-Qaeda, which existed in remote areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan before that.
