who compassion freedom." - Ronald Reagan, March 21, 19831985 National Security
Decision Directive 166,29 is a secret plan to escalate covert action in
Afghanistan dramatically: Abandoning a policy of simple harassment of Soviet
occupiers, the Reagan team decides to secretly let loose on the Afghan
battlefield an array of US high technology and military expertise in an effort
to hit and demoralize Soviet commanders and soldiers.
CIA supplies mujahideen
rebels with extensive satellite reconnaissance data of Soviet targets on
the Afghan battlefield, plans for military operations based on the satellite
intelligence, intercepts of Soviet communications, secret communications
networks for the rebels, delayed timing devices for tons of C-4 plastic
explosives for urban sabotage, and sophisticated guerrilla attacks, long-range
sniper rifles, a targeting device for mortars that was linked to a US Navy
satellite, wire-guided anti-tank missiles, and other equipment.
1986 The mujahideen are provided with more than 1,000
state-of-the-art, shoulder-fired Stinger antiaircraft missiles.

Intelligence (ISI) headquarters in Rawalpindi. At any one time during the
Afghan fighting season, as many as 11 ISI teams trained and supplied by the CIA
accompany mujahideen across the border to supervise attacks. The teams attack
airports, railroads, fuel depots, electricity pylons, bridges and
CIA operations officers help Pakistani trainers establish schools
for the mujahideen in secure communications, guerrilla warfare, urban sabotage
and heavy weapons. Mujahideen trained in these techniques using chemical and
electronic-delay bomb timers supplied by the US carry out numerous car bombings
and assassination attacks in Kabul.

Foundation supported via a whole series of federal privatization studies (on

Two tangible accomplishments followed from these efforts.
The first was the successful privatization of Conrail, the northeastern freight
railroad taken over by the federal government from the bankrupt Penn-Central.
It was sold via a stock offering to investors in 1987 for $1.6 billion.
The other was the appointment of the President's Commission on
Privatization in 1987.

lasting achievement on that front was slashing marginal rates for the wealthy -
