I'm guessing Hamid Karzai missed that memo:
KABUL (Reuters) - The Taliban freed a French aid worker on Saturday as President Hamid Karzai marked the anniversary of the end of communist rule with a fresh offer of olive branch to the resurgent Islamic guerrillas.WHA?????
Let's take a closer look at this:
At a colorful ceremony in Kabul for the 15th anniversary of the fall of the Soviet-backed communist regime, Karzai again pleaded with the Taliban to talk peace.And those three thousand dead Americans, the nation that put you, an Unocal puppet, back in charge, including the natural gas pipeline Unocal is building to Pakistan?
"Today, while celebrating the jihad victory, we once again invite those who have sided with aliens because of seduction against their nation, to give up sedition and evil and join peaceful life," he said.
Wouldn't it be nice if the those men and women could join you at your festival of peace?
The real kicker was the Taliban response to this offer:
France's Foreign Ministry confirmed that one member of an aid group who had been kidnapped in Afghanistan early this month had been released.
Why are we fighting in Iraq again?
