Running for positions in the Obama administration is more like it. Yet he does seem to back Taliban more than AQ. Which is more pro Iran? Taliban or AQ?
In all fairness, the Taliban gave AQ safe harbor in Afghanistan. So I don't know why Obama is talking to the Taliban.
"Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future."
