    Does anyone but me wonder:

    Just who speaks for the Taliban?
    Is there any credibility at all to any promise that they might make?
    Also, I'm betting that the Taliban isn't including the foreign fighters in Al Qaeda.

    Credibility is built over time.

    They have no credibility whatsoever in my eyes, they are our enemies--anything they say or do is suspect.

    I'm pretty sure you're right about that.

    Mula Ma'soum Afghani, for one....


    Interview with Taliban Spokesperson



    And as for credibility to thier promise? one would simply look at who they are and thier history, while we rightfully attacked them for harboring al qaeda, they never involved themselves in international esecially euro-american affairs.... its a simple observation, that most can grasp.

    Nothing a "Mullah" says can be trusted. The Mullahs are terrorists.

    he asks ho speaks for the taliban, that was but one example. Technically the Taliban are afghani domestic terrorists. They don't give a crap about us.... Its the AQ they harbored that did.

    I'll give a little while to retract that statement. Fine-tune it if you will.

    Not entirely sure what you're referring to. Foreign fighters, al Qa'ida, are typically embedded into Taliban brigades because the fighters have received advanced training from, or are, a former mujahadeen from the Afghan-Soviet war; I'm not saying al Qa'ida is extremely "elite", or much better than the Taliban, but they too (just like NATO coalition) see the Taliban as needing to be told how to do what the Taliban have been doing since long before they were called the "Taliban". I guess their name of "students" gets in the way of their tribal foundations.

    al Qa'ida, or what is now know as al Qa'ida, operatives did very little of the actual fighting in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union. Much of the forces that ousted S.U. were locals.

    This is your best bet.

    68 of the top Taliban Leaders. Some of them, currently, are either missing in hiding, or their faces got splattered by American military genius.

    Mullah is the title of a religious leader or a follower of islam learned in islamic law, the position has nothing to do with terrorism unless a person in the position applies themselves to terrorism.

    Not just Islamic, but Jewish also

    [19th Century]When Rabbi Yosef Maman arrived in Bukhara, a Nasi, Mullah Yosef Hasid, who was the Parnas and head of the community and Mullah Kamliadin led the community. This leadership, composed of a twosome, one spiritual and the other secular, was the norm for Bukhara throughout the period under study. Hacham Yosef agreed to settle in Bukhara on the condition that a Yeshiva be established for the study of Torah and for training a group of students who would be teachers, ritual slaughterers of meat (Shohatim), and to serve as future leaders of the various communities. Prominent families as well as those newly arrived in Bukhara from the diaspora sent their sons to the Yeshiva to study. Among the students were Rabbi Pinhas Ha-Cohen ben Isaac of Baghdad, Rabbi Yosef Chak-Chak and his son Mullah Fuzail who came from Baghdad or Aleppo, Rabbi Jacob ben Moses Samendar and others. Over the years, these students became the leaders of the Central Asia's Jewish Communities.
