CIA and other US agents – fearing a diplomatic incident – rarely ventured into Afghanistan. Generally speaking, soldiers from the British elite Special Air Service (SAS) most likely worked with and train the mujaheddin. The SAS provided weapons training in Afghanistan until 1982 when Russian soldiers found the passports of two British instructors in a training camp. After that, mujaheddin were trained in secret camps in remote parts of Scotland. When the US decided to supply Stinger missiles to the mujaheddin, it was the SAS who provided the training in how to use them. But the SAS was taking orders from the CIA. The CIA also indirectly gave weapons to Osama Bin Laden and other mujaheddin leaders. One former US intelligence official will say in 1999, "[US agents] armed [Bin Laden's] men by letting him pay rock-bottom prices for basic weapons." But this person notes the relationship will later prove to be embarrassing to Bin Laden and the CIA. "Of course it's not something they want to talk about."
Guns for the Afghan Rebels,
And the rest the rest they've go to label
The hammer and sickle seems so fickle
When the tanks are rolling in

They fight with muskets
But never surrender
The tanks are rolling in…

Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan

As the gold goes cold the rich are told
There's rebel men and rebels boys
Rebels with a cause

Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan

Guns for the Afghan Rebels,
Or the countries will start to tremble,
Not the first not the last,
As Afghan is trying to...

Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
Taking guns to Afghanistan
