Turki Faisal and the founding of Al-Qa`idah

If there is one man who can be (and should be) most blamed for the phenomenon of Al-Qa`idah, it is this prince Turki Faysal.  This is the man who still talks about his friendship with Usamah bin Ladin and talks about him as a nice gentle man (until he was corrupted by an Egyptian, according to him).  He here provides a sectarian history of Al-Qa`idah and maintains that Shi`ites were behind it. Kid you not.  If he said those words in English, he would be laughed at but he wrote in the mouthpiece of his uncle, Salman (Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat).
