06/13/2003 Entry: "The Return of the Evildoers"

"KARACHI - Such is the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan, compounded by the return to the country of a large number of former Afghan communist refugees, that United States and Pakistani intelligence officials have met with Taliban leaders in an effort to devise a political solution to prevent the country from being further ripped apart.

"According to a Pakistani jihadi leader who played a role in setting up the communication, the meeting took place recently between representatives of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), the US Federal Bureau of Investigation and Taliban leaders at the Pakistan Air Force base of Samungli, near Quetta.

"The source told Asia Times Online that four conditions were put to the Taliban before any form of reconciliation can take place that could potentially lead to them having a role in the Kabul government, whose present authority is in essence limited to the capital:

"Mullah Omar must be removed as supreme leader of the Taliban.
All Pakistani, Arab and other foreign fighters currently engaged in operations against international troops in Afghanistan must be thrown out of the country.
Any US or allied soldiers held captive must be released.

Captives? What captives?

"Afghans currently living abroad, notably in the United States and England, must be given a part in the government - through being allowed to contest elections - even though many do not even speak their mother tongue, such as Dari or Pashtu."
"US turns to the Taliban, by Syed Saleem Shahzad, Asia Times, June 14, 2003

Isn't this what the US thought in, what? 1993, when the Taliban first took over Afghanistan, that they would be a stabilizing force in chaos? And then the Taliban became the EvilDoers(TM) and we kicked them out. But now they're a stabilizing force in chaos (again) and they're back. Wait, I think I have conceptual whiplash. Where's my lawyer?

How soon before we offer the Iraqi Minister of Information a talk show on Faux?
