Osama and Alija - Partners in Crime

The judge at The Hague thinks it's 'irrelevant' that Osama bin Laden was seen entering the office of Alija Izetbegovic, the neo-conservatives favourite Islamist. Pro-war western media seem to think so too, judging by the way they have complete ignored these revelations.
I wonder what Osama and Alija chatted about?
Could it have been to discuss how much support both had received from Washington down the years? Or maybe, what a good idea it would be to form a society named after the late, great, Henry Jackson?

Osama bin Laden received support from the US, did he?

When? For what purpose?

Or have you confused him with the Taleban?

On reflection, in my previous comment, I should have used the term "anti-Soviet mujaheddin" rather than "Taleban" - the US government of the time having given assistance to many different groups that were fighting the Soviets.
