COME FOR THE FOOTHOLD, STAY FOR THE TOETAG:

Thought of Taleban deal alarms jihadists (Frank Gardner, 10/24/08, BBC)

There is a growing fear among some hardline supporters of al-Qaeda that talk of an eventual peace deal between the Taleban and the Afghan government could lead one day to al-Qaeda losing its foothold in the region. [...]

In the shadowy world of extremist internet forums, even talks about talks are enough to provoke alarm in some quarters.

Are the Taleban preparing to sell out their old allies, al-Qaeda, as the price for getting back into government?


Which is why the jihadi prefer Mr. Obama to Mr. McCain.
