I don't want to give anything away, taint anyone's answers, or ruin the chance to learn something, so I will let some people answer before responding. With that said... 1) what is your understanding of both the pakistan & afghan taliban? 2) what was their relationship leading up to 9/11 and what is now? 3) What did either/any taliban have to do with 9/11, if anything? 4) what are the taliban's international goals? 5) what is each taliban's relationship with al qaeda both in their own countries and abroad? 6) what is the taliban's thoughts relationship with iran? 7) what is al qaedas thoughts and relationship with iran? 8) would either group take assitance from iran if offered? 9) what is each group's connection to saudi arabi? 10) what is each group's connection to irsael? I am hoping to get some good answers to either some or all of the questions. I think it could go along way to get a bunch of information out not normally talked about in great detail or in stand alone form.
