Lieutenant-General Hamid Gul was a military commander in the Pakistan army in the 1980s, and served as the head of the country's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency from 1987 to 1989.

Gul's rise to fame came during the Pakistan-Saudi-US effort to keep funds and logistical support flowing to the Afghanistan mujahidin, who were eventually credited with defeating Soviet military and political forces. He talks to Al Jazeera's Kamahl Santamaria.

Talk to Al Jazeera can be seen from Thursday, February 18 at the following times GMT: 1430, 2330; Friday: 0330, 1630 and Saturday: 0830.
