    Not to nitpick, but the CIA never had a formal relationship with Bin Laden. Though Bin Laden was indeed in Afghanistan fighting the Soviets, he was doing so of his own agency and using his own (considerable) funds. He was associated with more radical elements of the Mujahideen, and many members of the Afghan Mujahideen viewed the so called “Afghan Arabs” who’d joined the fight with a great deal of suspicion. He never received formal training, funding, weapons, or any other support from the Agency. Though the Agency was aware of his activities, and they had a mutual enemy, they were far from close.

    I agree with Kevin. The main recipients of aid were the Northern Alliance which became a part of the current Afghan Gov’t after the beginning of the war.
