14. ABSTRACT
The Taliban is a largely Pashtun insurgent movement operating throughout Afghanistan andPakistan. Much of its ideology is based on Saudi Arabian-influenced Wahabbist thought, and assuch is alien to Pashtun culture. It is in direct conflict with the traditional Pashtun socialcode of Pashtunwali and has subverted the traditional tribal structure of the Pashtun. CoalitionForces should support and strengthen traditional Pashtun tribal leaders and their traditionalsocial structure in Afghanistan and Pakistan in order to isolate the Taliban insurgency, enablingthe achievement of Coalition end state objectives.
