West's romancing of the Taliban

By Praveen Swami

January 18, 2012

People of Afghanistan will pay the price for the West's looming deal with the Islamic Emirate it destroyed after 9/11.

The West's Afghanistan policy marks a return to these geostrategic roots —this time founded on the hope that religious-authoritarian regimes will provide a volatile region stability. Its growing engagement with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, its tactical embrace of jihadists in Libya and Syria, its use of the right-wing cleric, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, as a mediator with the Taliban form other parts of this mosaic. -- Praveen Swami
