Fuller helped get us in this mess
The policy of guiding the evolution of Islam and of helping them against our adversaries worked marvelously well in Afghanistan against the Red Army, explains a former CIA analyst. The same doctrines can still be used to destabilize what remains of Russian power, and especially to counter Chinese influence in Central Asia. In a certain sense, the Cold War is still going on. For years Graham Fuller, former Deputy Director of the National Council on Intelligence at the CIA, has been talking up the modernizing virtues of the Islamists, insisting on their anti-Statist concept of the economy. Listening to him, you would almost take the Taleban and their Wahhabi allies for liberals. Islam, in theory at least, is firmly anchored in the traditions of free trade and private enterprise, wrote Fuller. The prophet was a trader, as was his first wife. Islam does not glorify the States role in the economy.

That's a load of crap. Islam is a self described socialistic "Religion"
Article 21 of the Hamas Covenant.
Mutual social responsibility means extending assistance, financial or moral, to all those who are in need and joining in the execution of some of the work. Members of the Islamic Resistance Movement should consider the interests of the masses as their own personal interests. They must spare no effort in achieving and preserving them. They must prevent any foul play with the future of the upcoming generations and anything that could cause loss to society. The masses are part of them and they are part of the masses. Their strength is theirs, and their future is theirs. Members of the Islamic Resistance Movement should share the people's joy and grief, adopt the demands of the public and whatever means by which they could be realised. The day that such a spirit prevails, brotherliness would deepen, cooperation, sympathy and unity will be enhanced and the ranks will be solidified to confront the enemies.

Note that Richard Labevier was the guy who claimed Osama bin Laden had kidney problems and needed dialysis. [Which incidentally is the same claim made about Saddam Hussein when some folks wanted him to be left alone because due to the alleged illness he’d be gone soon anyway.] Not sure how reliable his reporting of the quotes of other people may be.
