I do not understand your question.
I was inquiring as to which "foreign policy of the U.S. at the time the episode was written" that you were referring to.
"I" wasn't - the writers were. Foreign policy can be broad-sweeping, not specific. The foreign policy of the U.S. at the time was moving to a "policing of the world" as the Soviet Empire crumbled leaving one Super Power. As I explained in my reply above, I was not agreeing or disagreeing with Rikers statement, just noting that the writers had put it there. Although I am surprised that someone would think that "arms to rebels helped" the situation in Afghanistan.

Nice to meet you btw, and nice to have someone new join the "episode of the week" thread. Hope you'll stick around.
One day soon, man is going to be able to harness incredible energies, energies that could ultimately hurl us to other worlds in... some sort of spaceship.
