The mujahedin narrative was much more honest than that of the communists.
I used Ramadi and Haditha because they were both dangerous and deadly, both of them centers of mujahedin resistance.
But Rabbani was one of the mujahedin leaders who fought against the Taliban to the end as a member of the Northern Alliance Front.
The opposition was discredited, especially the mujahedin e Khalq, which supported Saddam and Iraq.
The mujahedin that defeated Moscow were based across the border in Pakistan.
What was it Ronald Reagan called the Contras and the Afghan mujahedin?
In 1992 Dostum “defected” to the side of the mujahedin and joined in the battle to take Kabul and oust Najibullah.
CIA operatives said they knew the mujahedin (future Taliban) after the war with the Soviets in Afghanistan.
Only some 50 or so CIA officers were ever engaged at one time in helping the mujahedin.
Unlike the mujahedin or the government, they did not fight among themselves.
