The Taliban and Osama bin Laden were once called freedom fighters (mujahideen) and backed by the CIA when they were resisting the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan.

It is said that one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. In
the wake of the horrendous events of September 11, 2001 and the ensuing
hunt for Osama bin Laden, as well as the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the U.S.-led war on Iraq, one can hardly dismiss the importance of
an international agreement on just what is meant by “terrorism.” (Source scholarship.law.cornell.edu
