I was surpised to see the second episode of The Power Of Nightmares on SBS tonight. For those of you who haven't seen it, the final installment is on tomorrow night (or you can go to the internet link above and watch the whole thing in lower resolution).

Tonight this series continues its assessment of whether the threat from a hidden and organised terrorist network is an illusion, examining how the radical Islamists and neo-conservatives, two groups with seemingly opposing ideologies, came together to defeat a common enemy, the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.
