They are two different groups with similar goals. They often work together, which makes it more confusing. Al-Qaida is an international terrorist group. They have cells throughout the world. The Taliban is based in Afganistan and were the rulers of that country until the U. S. invasion. Both favor a very extreme brand of Islam.
