Basement Wall Insulation

I am starting to frame in a block wall basement in Virginia. I want to insulate but I don't know the best way. In reading various websites on the subject, using fiberglass, as I had planned, may not allow moisture to dry out in the wall cavity and thus lead to a mold problem. I do have some insulation on the outside of the basement walls and I have painted the interior that is below grade with Dry Lock. I want to do this right. What is the best way to insulate these wall cavities? Would you please give me some advise?

When you say there is insulation on the outside of the wall is this above or below grade ?
