Taliban tells Obama there are no ?moderates? in its ranks
( Mar 10 2009 )

Kabul, Mar. 10 (ANI):  The Taliban has squarely rejected US President Barack Obama’s call for negotiating with its ‘moderate’ arm to bring the ‘War on terror’ in the region to end.

A self styled spokesperson of the outfit, Qari Mohammad Yousuf termed Obama’s tactics of adopting a strategy similar to that of Iraq, as ‘illogical’.

“This does not require any response or reaction from us as this is illogical," The News quoted Yousuf in a media report, as saying.

He said that the Taliban were united, and has only one aim, which was to throw out foreign forces from the region.

"The Taliban are united, have one leader, one aim, one policy.I do not know why they are talking about moderate Taliban and what it means?” Yousuf added.

Earlier, Obama had admitted that Washington was open to dialogues with the moderate elements of the Taliban, however, officials at the same had said that the US is planning a dramatic intensification of the Predator drone attacks on the Taliban in the tribal region along the Afghanistan- Pakistan border.
