That is right. They were instructed in defensive war, against attacking military forces. They were NOT instructed in terrorist activity by the U.S.; that came from other Arab countries.

By the way, a small ironic point in America's war against drugs:
There is none. It is a war on civil rights, using drugs as an excuse.

when the Taliban
ruled over Afghanistan, at least the heroin production stopped.
And Mussolini got the trains to run on time. Did you read any of the huge amount of literature about the oppression of women, just for example, in Taliban Afghanistan?

As a side note: what, I ask you, about the deliberate attack by Israeli forces on
the unarmed USS Liberty in 1967, an American ship? Do you actually know of that
10 U.S. investigations and 3 Israeli investigations all concluded that it was a mistake. The U.S. misreported the position of the Liberty (they had declared publicly that there were no ships within 100 miles of the fighting, but the orders to the Liberty to stay away were not received). An Israeli town was being shelled from a position approximately where the Liberty was. The Liberty was moving at near-warship speed, rather than the slower speed which noncombatants were required to observe, by both Israeli and American rules. The American flag was not properly displayed, and was knocked down, making the ship an unidentified vessel. According to CIA reports, the Liberty looked similar to an Egyption ship, the El Quseir. The torpedo attack causing the deaths on the Liberty only took place after the Liberty started shooting at the Israelis.

Once the mistake was realized, Israel offered their military to help with the rescue operations (an offer that was accepted). Later, Israel paid reparations to the United States and the families of the victims.
