The point I was trying to make is that there was no "Taliban along with the brave mujihadeen" at the time. The Taliban post-date the end of the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan. Once the Taliban came into formation it gained the support of many other groups, including the I.S.I, but it would also be a mistake to view them as the creation of some external power.
