  • SPECIAL NOTE: There is no evidence that the people sitting around Mr. Reagan are Afghans. The Mujahideen were based inside Pakistan, trained by and under the control of Pakistan's military. The people sitting around Mr. Reagan appear to be wearing Pakistani style clothes. In addition to that, it was very easy for anyone in Pakistan to secure an Afghan passport in order to travel to the United States. The number 5 guy clearly appears as a Pakistani due to his Punjabi style moustache and turban. Therefore, these may be Pakistani imposters who fraudulently presented themselves as Afghans to the White House. If you have information as to who these individuals are please share that information on my talk page or remove the "Unknown" and add the person's name. Thank you.
