However, after this amazing accomplishment, The United States refused to listen and reason with Wilson's pleads to continue to fun Afghanistan to help them recover and rebuild from the damages the Soviets had done. This ignorance of Country's leader (excluding Charlie Wilson) led to an unstable country where any one or group could take over with ease. And that person was of course...OSAMA BIN LADEN
So many could say that Carlie Wilson was not a hero, or something of the sort, but that is simply not true for 2 reasons.
First of all, what he DID manage to accomplish was getting rid of the Soviet Union, a group much more potentially devastating to our way of life than Al Queda could ever be. Second, it was not at all his fault for leaving Afghanistan open for terrorism; in fact he was one of the only few congress men at the time who supported doing something to stop it!
