The Taliban was created by Iran to be the militant faction that would head the Islamic Caliphate in Afghanistan, yet our Secretary of State is currently in Afghanistan urging Karsai to continue the “reconciliation process” with these terrorists. Why did we fight this war? Apparently, it was so that our government could help Iran make a new Caliphate possible. Karsai is understandably frustrated by this U.S. policy, considering the recent assassinations within his administration. Americans should be equally as angry at a policy of appeasement and reconciliation with the very terrorists that have killed or maimed hundreds of our troops.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Afghanistan to encourage President Hamid Karzai to continue efforts to reconcile with the Taliban.
Mr Karzai has expressed frustration at the process after the assassinations of several key Afghan leaders.
US officials say Mrs Clinton also wants to convince Afghans that Washington is committed to a long-term relationship with their country.
The US is planning to withdraw troops and hand over security to the Afghans.
“She wants to signal US support for a secure and stable Afghanistan,” a US official told journalists travelling with Mrs Clinton.
Her visit to Afghanistan was not announced until she arrived in Kabul late on Wednesday.
“She wants to emphasise that the United States remains committed to Afghan reconciliation and will support President Karzai in his efforts, recognising the difficulties that process has undergone since the assassination of [Burhanuddin] Rabbani,” the official added.
Burhanuddin Rabbani was a former Afghan president tasked with trying to reconcile the Taliban with Mr Karzai’s US-backed government. He was killed last month by a suicide bomber posing as a Taliban envoy.
Just maybe, when the person appointed to make this reconciliation work gets assassinated by the people he’s trying to make peace with, it might be advisable to RETHINK YOUR POLICY.
