Are you sure that wasn't Tora Bora?

Desirable, mostly underground residence in the Afghan mountains,
formerly the hideout of the late O bin L and built with generous
funding from the CIA.

Only a few hours per month? Browne cannot manage that?

Browne has done it before. He knows exactly what it involves, and he
confidently states that it only needs a few hours a month. So why on
earth did he take the SI on again, only to discard it mere months
later like a used Kleenex?

Perhaps he decided to get his teeth fixed. That would explain the
lack of time. At a few hours a month, even the best dentist would
take several years. ;-)

You've been plonked, yet he responds to you.
I called it a long time ago, when he forgot he was reading my postings.

To continue the sidetrack, on behalf of the CIA, I would like to
remind people that during the Carter administration, they repeatedly
warned the State Department NOT to get involved with Bin Laden and the
Taliban, that they were not what they seemed, even if it did
(eventually) defeat the Russians. The CIA was basically forced to go
along with it.

There was no question of the US ever supporting the Taliban, Rich. The
US supported the Mujahideen, a disparate group of freedom fighters
opposed to Russian domination of Afghanistan. American taxpayers'
money funded a network of sophisticated underground command and
control bunkers with advanced communications technology that was
better then anything the US armed forces had.

The Taliban came later. The Mujahideen were not sufficiently
organised to govern the country. Neither did they have widespread
support. The Taliban satisfied both those requirements.
