From the Washington Post:

We discovered a base with tents, food, weapons. It was here that Taliban coming from Pakistan would stay before moving out to other parts of the country,” said Fazluddin Agha, district police chief of Spin Boldak.

…Evidence is mounting in the southern regions of Afghanistan that the Taliban is reorganizing and has found an ally in Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, a rebel commander who has been labeled a terrorist by the United States and hunted by its troops.

But this last bit shouldn’t be news to anyone! Not only is it old news, but guess who was the largest recipient of US military aid (via Pakistan’s ISI) during the war against the Soviets?
