Back when the russians took over afganistan, you had the Moshajden rebels fighting the russians 1980's. Represenitive Charlie Wilson took up the project to fund the afgan rebels in congress from a few hundred thosand to a few billion in military hardware. Even shoulder launched stinger missiles. To shoot down the russian Hind-D attack helecopters. The CIA trained these so called rebels , and int he end the russians gave up and retreated back home. So when the media says there are terrorists etc. You have to remember "WE" trained all these people in the first place.
