    For Westerners, it’s not easy to join the Taliban
    Group has ample local recruits, sees little need for foreign fighters

    WASHINGTON (AP) - As five U.S. students are alleged to have discovered, joining Afghanistan's Taliban insurgents isn't easy for outsiders — one reason the flow of foreign fighters to Afghanistan so far is a small stream compared to the tide once seen in Iraq.

    Unlike foreign recruits who found porous borders and easy entry into Iraq, potential jihad fighters heading to the Afghan-Pakistan border face forbidding terrain and closely watched travel routes as well as precision drone attacks. And they are often looked on suspiciously by insular Afghan militant groups who tend to depend on their own tribal members to enlarge their fighting ranks.
