This is a different era. If we don't give aid to those that are actively fighting our enemies, we will not have any influence in the area. We either deal with possibly bad people or we just sit on our hands and hope for the best.

I know Reagan is an idol to R's. No need to defend every single act of his presidency. He was still human and humans make mistakes. It was a big mistake made of arrogance. He has said that himself.
It was a murky business when Reagan was doing it too. It's not really any different in that respect.
