Taliban Will Not Renounce Al Qaeda

Taliban will not renounce al Qaeda:

“They [al Qaeda] are among the first groups and banners that pledged allegiance to the Emir of the Believers [Mullah Omar, the leader of the Afghan Taliban], and they operate in Afghanistan under the flag of the Islamic Emirate,” Wazir said.

“They are an example of discipline and accuracy in the execution of missions and operations entrusted to them by the Military Command of the Islamic Emirate,” Wazir continued, calling al Qaeda “lions in war.”

This strikes me as a fairly generous assessment of al Qaeda’s operational capability and performance.  That said, this still strikes me as big news, especially given the number of defeatists who claim we’re not fighting al Qaeda over there.
