Bin Laden's group in the Mujahideen was called Maktab al-Khidamat, abbreviated as MAK. It is frequently claimed that the CIA directly funded this group, though top CIA officers say that this is not the case. It has been confirmed, at least, that the MAK did receive funding from the ISI, the CIA's primary conduit for conducting their covert war against Russia.

CIA Station Chief in Afghanistan Milt Bearden has stated that he was well aware of Bin Laden in the Mujahideen, and welcomed his efforts in funding, though he never met with him personally. Bin Laden also brought in construction equipment from his fathers company Saudi Binladen Group, considered the largest construction firm in the world, to build training camps, in collaboration with the ISI and CIA.

In 1986, Osama used his construction assets to build a CIA financed tunnel complex to serve as a major arms depot, training facility and medical depo for the Mujahideen in the Peshwar mountains near Pakistan, that would be later used by Al Qaeda.


Al Qaeda was formed sometime between 1987-88, with the radical elements of MAK joining after the latter group split.


The Taliban


The origins of the Taliban can be traced back to the Mujahideen. The Taliban is actively involved with al-Qaeda as well, a widely reported fact confirmed by such documents as this 1998 State Department cable claiming that "Taliban Leader Mullah Omar lashed out at the US, asserting that the Taliban will continue providing a safe haven for Bin Laden."

There is plenty of evidence that Pakistan's ISI currently actively funds the Taliban and other terrorist cells, while barring the US military from operating in the tribal areas. This is hugely significant because since 9/11, the United States has given Pakistan over $15 billion, much of which goes to the ISI and military.

Vice President Joe Biden said himself in 2003 that the ISI was either turning a blind eye or cooperating with the Taliban. The linked New York Times article further states that some members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee contend "contend that the intelligence service may have provided money, weapons and broadcast equipment to Taliban fighters now in Pakistan to transmit anti-Karzai, anti-American messages into Afghanistan."

BBC has reported on a secret NATO report which notes: "Pakistan's manipulation of the Taliban senior leadership continues unabatedly".

A report published by the London School of Economics gave 9 in depth interviews with Taliban insurgent commanders. They suggest that the ISI has members on the Taliban leadership council, though they expressed fear of assassination if they went into to much depth on this topic.

A 2009 New York Times article noted that the ISI was giving the Taliban money, military supplies, and strategic guidance, citing US officials. This occurred during the same time that Obama was beginning his troop surge and within months of a $7.5 billion US aid package to Pakistan, with the military and ISI being the primary recipients according to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Thus US funding was not only putting troops in harms way, but also actively contributing to the proliferation of the danger they faced.

And so on. The CIA wrote a report that I posted on here about 2 years ago that foreign oil, mostly Saudi oil, was supporting terrorism. The report stated that the number one way to stop funding terrorism was to develop renewable energy resources and get off oil dependency. I guarantee every oil executive in America and every congressman on Capitol Hill knows this. The Republicans have vowed to fight every effort to combat global warming by developing renewable resources. Call it a conspiracy theory if you want, but it is happening.

Arizona's pension fund was invested in a charity that Ben Laden had, and that money was used to train terrorist in Arizona that did 911. I knew two of them working with them. The owner of the Marriot and part owner of Four Seasons is from Saudi Arabia. Solitary
There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.

So what you're saying is rich people profit from war and feed both heads of the snake..
Wow! Tell us something we don't know..
We have an enormous war machine whose only function is to keep growing and the only fuel to keep growing is war. It's called military industrial complex and since the cold war has been a growth industry. The only way out is to have such a brutal war on our soil that everyone becomes so utterly disgusted with war the people selling war run out of customers. Good luck with that because oil independence isn't going to cut it. They'll just invent a new reason to go to war.
All hail my new signature!

Admit it. You're secretly green with envy.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if the only reason the US can get away with while the rest of the developed world doesn't, is because all countries here have experienced plenty of war first-hand, while most in the US only have stories of how the US military "went out and liberated the world".

It gives you a very different perspective on war to be on the receiving end of it.

What percentage of Europeans were on the receiving end of any war?  The population of Bosnia, compared to all of Europe, is tiny.  And most of the Europeans who could remember WWII are dead now.  A few more may remember the hardship of rebuilding after the war, but not many remember the war itself.
Afflicting the comfortable for 70 years.
