U.S negotiating with Taliban?
U.S negotiators were supposed to be negotiating with a Taliban named Mullah Akhtar Mansour. This Taliban negotiator was recommended by General Stanley McChrystal and met Karzai many times and he also met General David Petraeus. Now it turns out that this guy was no Mullah Akhtar Mansour and was a fake. U.S negotiators found out about this fake guy when he had already gotten hundreds of thousands of U.S dollars for being a good Taliban and willing to negotiate. Now he has completely disappeared. In other words, U.S and NATO maybe were financing Taliban. Good one, eh! We are making such a big fool of ourselves. So sad.
This is indeed very scary. Now there is talk of training the Afghan army. Are we sure? Maybe we are training Taliban who then will be better equipped to fight U.S and other NATO forces. This is a big time fiasco.
