NPR Sunday Puzzle (June 3): Drop First Letter, Add a B

Drop First Letter, Add a B:
Q: Name a European nationality, drop the first letter, insert a 'b' somewhere later in this string of letters and the result will name a group of people found mainly in Asia. What groups of people are these?
Is it vital I answer this week? You can figure this out on your own, can't you? Okay, I'll give clue... think of being hidden in a place associated with Carroll O'Connor.

Edit: The first part of the answer was hidden in "Is it vital I answer..." and the second part referred to the Taliban hiding out in bunkers and caves in the border regions of Afghanistan.
A: ITALIAN - I + B --> TALIBAN
