Afghan High Peace Council Blames US for Insecurity in Afghanistan
Afghan High Peace Council has released a statement saying that the United States is a source of insecurity in Afghanistan and that the U.S. martyred Osama bin Laden. The High Peace Council is made of a number of influential politicians, statesmen, academics, business leaders, government appointees, and even former (or maybe current) Taliban members. Thus far it has been relatively ineffective in negotiating with the Taliban and has a dismal record of implementing the reintegration program. Powerful words from an organization appointed by Karzai to represent Afghanistan in peace talks with the Taliban. Time for the "Zero Option"?
