EXCLUSIVE: Correspondence with top Taliban webmaster

We have been having some Correspondence with top Taliban webmaster about the
GWOT in Stan. Since Nov 2008.
We have made it eminently clear I speak only for my self, not the US Government
and all opinions are my own.
The crux of our messages revolve around USA's targeting
al Qaeda, the Taliban are only a target as they have interceded
on al Qaeda's behalf.
We have talked about the Guest that wouldn't leave.
And how the Guest treat the host as a dog.
I have told him that the Taliban are not the primary target
of the USA, al Qaeda is. al Qaeda attacked on 911
and USA will follow them to hell and back to kill them.
About the possibilities of the Taliban giving up al Qaeda
and how USA could in most part go home.
About how both sides are tired of this war,
but how USA is willing to spend its self into
a Depression even to get al Qaeda.
Paradigm Intel indicates this was passed up the chain of command
at the Taliban.
Taliban chief proposes formula to end crisis in Afghanistan

KABUL, Dec. 20 (Xinhua) -- Taliban elusive leader Mullah Mohammad Omar has forwarded a formula to end conflicts and bring about peace in his war-torn country, a local newspaper reported Saturday.
"Mullah Omar delivered his plan through Saudi Arabia King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz," daily Outlook quoted Iranian television channel Press TV as saying.
Without going into the details of the formula, the newspaper added that the adamant Taliban chief, contrary to the past, in the plan stressed for timetable for the withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan.
"Peacekeeping troops from Muslim countries should replace the NATO and U.S. troops to ensure a smooth transition until the Afghans can reach a consensus government," Omar insisted in the formula, according to the newspaper.
Another demand made by Mullah Omar is about sharing power with the current Afghan regime as he also demanded the consolidation of the Taliban fighters into the Afghan army and amnesty for them.
Taliban spokespersons were not immediately available for comments.
Omar, who has not been seen in public since being ousting from power by U.S.-led troops in late 2001, had previously conditioned any talks with President Hamid karzai's government with the pullout of more than 70,000-strong international forces from Afghanistan.
With mediation of Saudi Arabian Kingdom, a meeting was held between Taliban and pro-government figures including some Afghan parliamentarians in Riyadh some three months ago.
President Karzai, besides appreciating the talks, called on Saudi Arabian leader to play a role in strengthening security in Afghanistan.
Nevertheless, the fugitive Taliban chief, whose name is among the wanted men by the United States, in the formula warned to intensify attacks on foreign troops if the White House sends additional troops to Afghanistan.
Its up to the Taliban now.
Giving up al Qaeda, Biny and Big Z wouold go a long way
towards taking the pressure off the Taliban.

Rashwan told Al Arabiya that there is an ongoing debate between two forces within the Taliban on whether to give up Al Zawahiri or not. He believes that the outcome depends on who has the final word. if the Taliban nationalists had their way, then Al Zawahiri will be handed over dead or arrested, but if the Taliban Islamists have their way, then the negotiations may fail specifically due to differences on how to deal with al Qaeda.
Another major obstacle for the success of the negotiations is the leader of the Islamic party, Kalb Al dean Hikmatyar, who has alleged his allegiance to both Bin Laden and the Taliban in fighting the occupation. His role in helping the Taliban expand its control in Afghanistan is crucial, which makes him an important part of any future negotiations, according to Rashwan.
President-elect Barack Obama has vowed to use additional force to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan. However, it seems what is needed is less force and more talk. The U.S.’s willingness to talk with the Taliban is essential in isolating them from Al Qaeda.
Recently, the U.S. agreed to consider dropping the name of Mullah Omar from the terror list because of possible talks. On October 31, Press TV cited Patrick S. Moon, U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs, saying, "The U.S. intends to remove Mullah Omar from the black list in a bid to provide a suitable seedbed for holding contacts with the Taliban."
There is evidence that these gestures are paying off in the form of more moderate positions within the ranks of the Taliban. In fact, Rashwan believes that the recent bombing of Al Qaeda fighters in the Tribal areas may have been based on information provided by elements within the Taliban as a "good gesture" for what they view as a change in U.S. polices
