Taliban Breaks Off ‘Negotiations’ With US

From Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s favorite media outlet, Al Jazeera:

Taliban suspends talks with US

Afghan group says in a statement that obstacles to talks was "shaky and erratic standpoints" of Americans.

15 Mar 2012

The Afghan Taliban have announced the suspension of all talks with the United States to seek an end to the ten year war.

"The Islamic Emirate [sic] has decided to suspend all talks with Americans taking place in Qatar from today onwards until the Americans clarify their stance on the issues concerned and until they show willingness in carrying out their promises instead of wasting time," the armed group said in a statement on Thursday.

The Taliban calls itself the "Islamic Emirate."

The statement said the US kept changing the terms of the negotiations, and had presented a "list of conditions" in their latest meeting that was in contradiction to with the ealier [sic] arrangements.

"The Americans initially agreed upon taking practical steps regarding the exchange of prisoners and to not oppose our political office but with the passage of time, they turned their backs on their promises," the statement said.

"An American representative presented a list of conditions in his latest meeting with the Islamic Emirate which were not only unacceptable but also in contradiction with the earlier agreed upon points."

Maybe the US is having second thoughts about giving the Taliban so much power and handing over so many top level terrorists to them. Especially, since even some Democrats are complaining about it. Or maybe the Taliban don’t feel like we are giving them enough money.

In any case, the Taliban know they are in the driver seat as long as Obama is in the White House.

    What You Should Know About Leon PanettaSecretary of Defense Leon Panetta partnered with a group that promotes world government to co-chair an initiative to regulate U.S. oceans and cede them to United Nations-based international law.
    Panetta also keynoted the conference of a pro-Soviet, anti-war group during the height of the Cold War, and has previous unexplained close ties to the Institute for Policy Studies, a pro-Marxist think tank accused of anti-CIA activity.
    And that’s just the start of Panetta’s controversial background and radical associations exposed in the recently released book, “Red Army: The Radical Network that must be defeated to save America,” . The book also charges Panetta with anti-CIA activity. Penatta served as CIA chief under President Obama until his appointment to the secretary of defense post earlier this year.

    Until his ascent to CIA director in 2009, Panetta co-chaired the Joint Ocean Commission Initiative, which is the partner of Citizens for Global Solutions in a push to ratify U.S. laws and regulations governing the seas. The oceans initiative, dissected in the “Red Army” book, bills itself as a bipartisan, collaborative group that aims to “accelerate the pace of change that results in meaningful ocean policy reform.”
    Among its main recommendations is that the U.S. should put its oceans up for regulation to the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea.
    Obviously, Panetta is an enemy of the US, to read the entire post and to make a comment, go here.Laura J Alcorn
