... U.S. officials said the talks would involve the Taliban Political Commission, a newly formed group authorized by fugitive Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar.

Bull....This is all about MONEY. We’re gonna wind up funding these guys just like alqueda in Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iran, the Palestinians..........
The US taxpayers now support al Qaeda that attacked America in the 911 Atrocities.
Peace With Honor!!!
They killed four Americans today... obama loves these rag heads.
Our country is being run by maniacs.
Not only Obama, but every Democrat in Congress and half the Republicans.
Thanks for the reminders. Elected officials should take a good, long look at those pictures. Maybe just a few will feel a little differently about negotiating with those who did that to us.
I agree... but it may be as high as 70% of republicans.
I cannot see how men can lay aside their conscience when they enter politics.
Surely there must be some Democrats who know they are following a man with intentions to destroy this nation. Yet they follow him like Lemmings.
Does power and position mean so much to these people that they keep selling our nation down the river?
Yes, to be a rat is to be of satan... half or more of the republican party have also sold out to evil. evil exists and it is rampant in DC. That is the only explanation that makes sense... that and the Bible warned us.
Afghanistan also has mineral riches.
"There is only one thing in Afghanistan that is important to the powers that be, and that is who controls the poppy yield.
"That is what so many Americans have died for even though there is not a single redeeming quality anywhere there on either side.
"No one and nothing worth fighting for, only the poppies and not for their pretty flowers."
