As if talking to fanatics was going to get anywhere. Hope some int emerges from gentle treatment in Pakistan.
QUOTE Mr Eide said he believed it was the only way to end the war, and stressed: "This has to be an Afghan process." UNQUOTE
Exactly - but Afghanistan is NOT part of Pakistan and the Pakistan government has done what they felt was appropriate in the interests of their OWN citizens to prevent further loss of life due to terrorist activities on Pakistani soil.
FFS when will the UN wake up and smell the coffee?
Sounds a bit like all Government negotiations with Terrorists, here from Mr Eide.
"The first contact was probably last spring, then of course you moved into the election process where there was a lull in activity, and then communication picked up when the election process was over, and it continued to pick up until a certain moment a few weeks ago," he said.
Ah so the Terrys left off comms during the Election process whilst the pressure (Read intimidation, murder etc etc.) was put on the electorate and when they lost they go back to the 'Table' to continue negotiations.
Hmm, time for a Hellfire drone strike on Mr E's swede as a wake up call?
And I wonder what that "certain moment a few weeks ago" was.
These were 'secret' talks, so no blame can be put on Pakistan if they didn't know that these men were being talked to. They should have kept Pakistan in the picture.
If they weren't being talked to and Pakistan had a chance to arrest them and didn't, they would have been criticised for that as well.
Seems they can't win.
