    [W: 19] Trump envoy is selling out Afghanistan in Taliban peace talks: senior Afghan official

    From NBC News

    Trump envoy is selling out Afghanistan in Taliban peace talks: senior Afghan official

    A top Afghan government official on Thursday blasted the Trump administration's peace talks with the Taliban, accusing a U.S. presidential envoy of shutting out the Kabul government and betraying the trust of a close ally.

    "We don't know what's going on. We don't have the kind of transparency that we should have," Hamdullah Mohib, Afghan national security adviser, told reporters during a visit to Washington.

    Asked if President Donald Trump's envoy for reconciliation in Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, was consulting the Afghan government on his talks with the Taliban insurgents, Mohib said: "No. We get bits and pieces of information."

    He added: "The last people to find out are us."

    COMMENT:-

    A VERY seniour White House person, who agreed to comment off the record and anonymously, is reported to have responded

    "Who the *** do those *** Afghananiggers *** think they *** well are? I'll *** well tell them what the *** to do and they'll *** well do it or else Ill *** them over so much that they'll never *** recover.".

    I don't know if that is true or not, but it doesn't appear to be out of character.
    I was told that the best things for me were to eat healthy foods, walk up hills, stop smoking cigars, and cut out drinking Scotch.
    With my record, I don't deserve the best. What's second best?

    Trump doesn't want the US to have troops in a nation that's next door to Russia

    Who, exactly, IS the "VERY senior White House person" and who reported his comments?
