"KABUL, Afghanistan — Hundreds of Taliban fighters have crossed into the country from Pakistan and are claiming large swathes of territory, the American commander of coalition forces in Kabul said yesterday.
As the Taliban intensified its attacks on American and Afghan forces over the weekend, Maj. Gen. F.L. "Buster" Hagenbeck said the Taliban and its allies have regrouped in Pakistan, recruiting fighters from religious schools in the city of Quetta in a campaign funded by drug trafficking."
I'm particularly interested in that recruits come from RELIGIOUS schools. Comments?
