Doesn't America provide arms to the Talibans because the latter are fighting the Russians?

At one point the US was the weapons provider for the mujahedin (the so-called "freedom fighters" who were fighting the Russians during most of the 80s). Within the mujahedin there were many factions (the Taliban being one of these) which fought for control of the country after the Russians withdrew from Afghanistan in 1989. The Taliban ended up seizing power in 1996.

hey, I can be blamed for many things, but I've never waged war against Russia! A cold war, maybe...
