A CNN documentary reports that the key suspects in the World Trade Center bombing had one thing in common-the Afghan War against the Soviet Union. The documentary shows that the war brought the terrorists together and strengthened their Islamic extremism. It also found that the training for the bombers was funded indirectly by money from the CIA, which had been supporting the Afghan resistance against the Soviets, Jan. 16, 1994.
