Karzai Calls for Pakistan's Cooperation Amid Fazlullah Disagreement
[Tolo News] Afghanistan's Caped President Hamid
Maybe I'll join the Taliban Karzai
... A former Baltimore restaurateur, now 12th and current President of Afghanistan, displacing the legitimate president Rabbani in December 2004. He was installed as the dominant political figure after the removal of the Taliban regime in late 2001 in a vain attempt to put a
Pashtun face on the successor state to the Taliban. After the 2004 presidential election, he was declared president regardless of what the actual vote count was. He won a second, even more dubious, five-year-term after the 2009 presidential election. His grip on reality has been slipping steadily since around 2007, probably from heavy drug use...
on Friday warned that without Pakistain's cooperation in fighting terrorism it will be impossible for the countries to be secure.
"We want for Afghanistan and Pakistain be secure from terrorism, but with Pakistain's honest cooperation, it's impossible," Karzai said after the Eid al-Adha prayers at the Presidential Palace on Friday.
Karzai made the comments after a tense week of the two countries arguing over the location of a Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistain leader, Mullah Fazlullah
...son-in-law of holy man Sufi Mohammad. Known as
Mullah FM, Fazlullah had the habit of grabbing his FM mike when the mood struck him and bellowing forth sermons. Sufi suckered the Pak govt into imposing Shariah on the Swat Valley and then stepped aside whilst Fazlullah and his Talibs imposed a reign of terror on the populace like they hadn't seen before, at least not for a thousand years or so. For some reason the Pak intel services were never able to locate his transmitter, much bomb it. After ruling the place like a conquered province for a year or so, Fazlullahs Talibs began gobbling up more territory as they pushed toward Islamabad, at which point as a matter of self-preservation the Mighty Pak Army threw them out and chased them into Afghanistan...
, whom Pakistain says is responsible for giving the order to shoot schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai as well as a number of attacks on its military.
Kabul has refused to accept Islamabad's claim that Fazlullah is in eastern Afghanistan, despite Pakistain sharing its intelligence dossier with both Isaf and Afghanistan on the grounds of wanting him extradited back to Pakistain.
"There are Death Eaters living on the Pak soil for many, many years and no action has been taken against them", the Afghan Ministry of Interior front man Sediq Sediqi said on Wednesday, suggesting that Afghanistan's refusal to act on the information while also denying Fazlullah's presence is a retaliatory move for Pakistain failing to shut down the Taliban and Haqqani networks in North Wazoo.
