The AP reported last week that "U.S. officials from the State Department and White House plan to continue a series of secret meetings with Taliban representatives."
The AP report went on to say that "one member of the Taliban negotiating team has been publicly identified as Tayyab Aga [Agha], an emissary of Pakistan-based Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar."
But sadly, and ironically, while the Obama administration is desperately reaching out to Mullah Omar, Mr. Omar is strengthening his resolve to kill US troops and to wreak havoc upon Afghanistan.
From the Times of India:
Taliban militants in Afghanistan and Pakistan have formed a new grouping which has pledged to stop targeting Pakistani security forces and focus their attention on US-led Nato troops in Afghanistan at the intervention of their elusive supreme commander Mullah Omar.Likewise, the Long War Journal reported:
One of al Qaeda's top leaders has reached out to the most powerful Taliban commanders along the Afghan-Pakistani border to create a new alliance to battle the US and NATO forces in Afghanistan...Hence, while the Obama administration is desperately grasping on to straws and reaching out to Mullah Omar, Mr. Omar is creating "a new alliance to battle US and NATO forces in Afghanistan."
The members of the Shura-e-Murakeba agreed to cease attacks against Pakistani security forces, refocus efforts against the US, and end kidnappings and other criminal activities in the tribal areas.
The deal was brokered by senior al Qaeda leader Abu Yahya al Libi as well as by Sirajuddin Haqqani, the operational leader of the Haqqani Network, and Mullah Mansour, a senior Taliban leader who operates in eastern Afghanistan... Mullah Omar, the overall leader of the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, is said to have dispatched Siraj and Mansour to help negotiate the agreement...
Ironic indeed; if it weren't so sad, I would laugh......
Some additional tidbits from the.......
Mullah Obama meet Mullah Omar.
Another for the “Why am I not surprised?” file.
It just boggles my mind that so many people do not get it. The Mullahs have no desire or motivation to engage us because the absolutely biggest thrill of all is kicking Uncle Sugar in the nuts.
This is why overtures to their better nature never work. From a purely political standpoint, the United States is more valuable to them as an opponent than as a friend.
I think Obama is probably sitting in the White House laughing while the Taliban representatives spit in the faces of whoever Obama sends over.
There is but one way to deal with the Taliban.You kill them before they kill you, and if someone gets in the way, they had better move.
And by, "Taliban representatives", I take it they mean his Czars.
The hell you say.
