You know, I’m glad Obama wants to talk to the “moderate” Taliban members, as if there is such a thing. Maybe the “moderate” Taliban kill only with kindness? Yeah, that’s it. This was reported in an AP story today:

Baitullah Mehsud, who has a $5 million bounty on his head from the U.S., said Monday’s attack outside the eastern city of Lahore was in retaliation for U.S. missile strikes against militants along the Afghan border.

Soon we will launch an attack in Washington that will amaze everyone in the world,” Mehsud told The Associated Press by phone (emphasis added).

Let’s snuggle up by the fire, share some hot cocoa and have a nice chat. That sounds like such a great idea.

So the real question is: What is Obama’s true purpose in wanting to speak with the Taliban? There seems to always be an ulterior motive with this administration.
