AFGHANISTAN: Taliban leader Mullah Omar was on the U.S. State Department’s most wanted terrorist list from 2001 until Barack Hussein Obama took office….

Now he is being considered as a potential presidential candidate for Afghanistan. And Obama has just pledged to give them another $16 billion dollars of our money?

(To refresh your memory, Mullah Mohammed Omar, referred to as Mullah Omar, is the spiritual leader of the Taliban. He was Afghanistan’s de facto head of state from 1996 to late 2001, under the official title Head of the Supreme Council. He has been wanted by the U.S. State Department since October 2001, with a ten million dollar reward on his head for information leading to his capture. He was the one who gave safe harbor to Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda terrorists in preparation for the September 11th attacks, while leading the Taliban’s ongoing war against the U.S.and Coalition forces as well as the government of Afghanistan)

UK Telegraph  Afghan President Hamid Karzai called on Thursday on Taliban supreme leader Mullah Omar to give up fighting his US-backed government in return for the chance to run for president of the war-torn nation.

Mullah Omar, the one-eyed Taliban leader who has been on run since the United States toppled his regime in late 2001, is one of the world’s most wanted men and is leading a Taliban insurgency aimed at ousting Karzai. Karzai has repeatedly called on Omar and other insurgents fighting against his administration to renounce violence and accept peaceful reintegration.

“I repeat my call on all Afghans, those who aren’t the puppets of others and have (only) issues with us at home – they’re welcome for any talks,” he told a news conference.

“Mullah Mohammad Omar can come inside Afghanistan anywhere he wants to. He can open political office for himself but he should leave the gun.  “He along with his friends can come and create his political party, do politics, become a candidate himself for the elections. If people voted for him, good for him, he can take the leadership in his hand,” Karzai said.

The Taliban have repeatedly turned down Karzai’s peace offers and earlier this year withdrew from exploratory talks with the United States in Qatar.
