May 22 2001 LA Times. Bush gave $43 million to Taliban. US is their major funder
by 8 million inmates worldwide.
From the May 22, 2001 Los Angeles Times article. " ... the recent gift of $43 million to the Taliban rulers of Afghanistan, the most virulent anti-American violators of human rights in the world today. The gift, announced last Thursday by Secretary of State Colin Powell, in addition to other recent aid, makes the U.S. the main sponsor of the Taliban and rewards that 'rogue regime' for declaring that opium growing is against the will of God."
