Now we know why VP Biden refused to characterize the Taliban as "enemies". The sellout is in the works.

I guess I misunderstood. I thought we were in Afcrapistan to defeat/punish the taliban, not aq. It was that taliban that gave safe haven to the aq for their training camps and why we went after them. Or am I wrong?

Andy, you are right as I remember, but Obama doesn't let the facts and history get in the way of his re-election and the down grading of the USA! Retfed

I do recall Bush saying that anyone not with us would be considered to be against us. Or words to that effect

these negotiations began over a year ago when Robert Gates was SecDef, I think he's still a big supporter of talks.

Depending on how far you want to go back in time, the CIA created the Taliban and helped them come to power in Afghanastan.

We didn't exactly create them all by ourselves, but we certainly helped. Pakistan played a big part in their rise, as did Saudi Arabia (financially).
