My 1981 story on a new Islamic mosque in south Kansas City, MO. 

If you're not familiar with the history of US involvement in Afghanistan, the arms supplied by the Reagan administration in the 1980's to Afghan rebels turned that group into Al-Qaeda, led by Osama Bin Laden, at the time a low profile rebel leader. 

The 1981 bumper sticker provides a vivid reminder of Reagan's ill fated Afghan policy.
