Origin of Al-Qaeda

Isn't it interesting, that the origins of this organization is never discussed in the mainstream media.
BBC -- Al-Qaeda:
"Al-Qaeda emerged in Afghanistan in the late 1980s, as Arab volunteers joined US-backed Afghan mujahideen fighting to expel the occupying Soviet forces.

Bin Laden set up an organisation to help the volunteers, which became known as al-Qaeda, or 'the base'."
