Taliban suspends talks with US over trading US soldier for five Taliban prisoners because of ‘complex political situation’ of Afghanistan | Mail Online

‘The leadership of the Islamic Emirate has decided to suspend the process for some time due to the current complex political situation in the country,’ the statement read. ‘The process will remain suspended without the exchange of the prisoners until our decision to resume.’

Mujahed did not elaborate on what ‘political situation’ in Afghanistan led to the suspension of talks or say when they might resume. Afghanistan is in the middle of a presidential campaign ahead of an April 5 election. Two-term President Hamid Karzai cannot run again for office under the Afghan constitution.

The U.S. State Department has refused to acknowledge the negotiations, but the U.S. official previously told the AP that indirect talks were underway.

I’d tell the Taliban that either we get Sgt. Bergdahl back today, or they get Kandahar in radioactive ruins tomorrow.

That’s what they would do if the situation were reversed.  Actually, they wouldn’t.  They’d write Bergdahl off as “the Will of Allah,” and keep right on attacking us with the most effective weapons they could muster.

We could learn from them.  Well, if we were actually interested in a real victory over them.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
