Obama Offers Taliban 6 Provinces for 8 Bases
This may be the major reason for Obama's delay in deciding what to do about Afghanistan.
When Obama stated that he was going to reach out to the Islamic world, he was not kidding. The weakness of Obama has lead to the Taliban getting stronger. He has even given the Taliban the OK to participate in the future political landscape of Afghanistan. Apparently none of this was enough though, and now Obama is willing to share power in Afghanistan with the Taliban thugs. This is straight out of the Twilight Zone.
Negotiations have apparently been going on for weeks, with denials all in place from the US Embassy, from Pakistan, from the Taliban. Proposal has also been turned down by Taliban.
ISLAMABAD – The emboldened Taliban movement in Afghanistan turned down an American offer of power-sharing in exchange for accepting the presence of foreign troops, Afghan government sources confirmed.
"US negotiators had offered the Taliban leadership through Mullah Wakil Ahmed Mutawakkil (former Taliban foreign minister) that if they accept the presence of NATO troops in Afghanistan, they would be given the governorship of six provinces in the south and northeast," a senior Afghan Foreign Ministry official told IslamOnline.net requesting anonymity for not being authorized to talk about the sensitive issue with the media.
He said the talks, brokered by Saudi Arabia and Turkey, continued for weeks at different locations including the Afghan capital Kabul.
This seems like a betrayal to me, to the people, especially the women, of Afghanistan, as well as our country, the United States of North America, as well as all the other countries who have been involved in Afghanistan. Please note the involvement of our 'good friends', Saudi Arabia.
