Here is a post from the Friends of Uzbekistan listserv with resources on Afghanistan:

Here are some insightful articles' web addresses
relating to current events that I found very
informative, well-researched and by reliable authors.

Coming to Grips With Jihad: "The Roots of Muslim Rage"

The CIA poured billions into a jihad against
Soviet-occupied Afghanistan, creating a militant
Islamist brigade believed to have been involved in
bombings from Islamabad to New York.

The tribal lands of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border
reveal the future of conflict in the Subcontinent,
along with the dark side of globalization.

The Taliban embody a lethal combination: a primitive
tribal creed, a fierce religious ideology, and the
sheer incompetence, naiveté, and cruelty that are
begot by isolation from the outside world and growing
up amid war without parents.

Militant Islam, Oil and Fundamentalism in Central
Asia: Today, the U.S. has a "get Osama bin Laden policy" but
no effective Afghan policy.

I hope you find these articles useful and informative.

Best regards,
