Assange described 1970 as “year zero” of recent times, noting that a decision by the CIA, together with Saudi Arabia, to plow billions of dollars into arming the Mujahedeen fighters in Afghanistan to give the USR its own Vietnam, had led to the creation of al-Qaeda. This, he noted, led to 9/11, the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the creation of ISIS.
