According to The New York Times on March 28, 1993, “The United States and the Central Intelligence Agency invested close to $3.3 billion in the foreign volunteers [that served with the anti-Soviet mujahadeen efforts in Afghanistan during the 1980s]; Saudi Arabia was reported to have matched the CIA dollar for dollar.”
