Aljazeera and US government

When Aljazeera (after its launch) was run by secular Arab nationalists, it was fiercely opposed by the US government which constantly protested against its coverage. But when Aljazeera became run by militant Islamists, the US governments because quite pleased with the network and its coverage.  Which proves my point: the US in its contemporary history, always sided with religious reactionaries and obscurantists against progressives and enlightened Arab people.
