Taliban News, Obama Response

WRAL runs with an AP story it headlines:

Taliban extend hold, advance near Pakistan capital
I wouldn’t blame intelligent Americans for thinking the follow-up story headline could be:
Obama Offers Taliban Apologies; Blames Bush
What about you?

Don't be unkind. These are the "moderate" Taliban that the Obama administration can work with.

Darn! I should have remembered the "moderate" Taliban.

They're the ones who oppose beheading and any other form of capital punishment except suicide bombing in Allah's name.

Do I have that right?

Thanks for your Swiftian comment.

The moderate Taliban only maim eloping couples instead of beheading them.
Thanks, John
