1984: Bin Laden moves to Peshawar, a Pakistani town bordering Afghanistan, and is running a front organization for the mujaheddin known as Maktab al-Khidamar (MAK), funneling money, arms and fighters from the outside world into the Afghan war. [New Yorker, 1/24/00] "MAK was nurtured by Pakistan's state security services, the Inter-Services Intelligence agency, or ISI, the CIA's primary conduit for conducting the covert war against Moscow's occupation." [MSNBC, 8/24/98] He became closely tied to the warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, and greatly strengthened Hekmatyar's opium smuggling operations. [Le Monde, 9/14/01] Its interesting that Hekmatyar has ties with bin Laden, the CIA and drug running, since he's also been called "an ISI stooge and creation" by the Wall Street Journal. [Asia Times, 11/15/01]
