Taliban: ‘We Have Found This Way to Be Successful’
On Tuesday I wrote about South Korea’s deal with the Taliban to release Korean hostages:
Thereby guaranteeing that the Taliban will continue to kidnap and murder foreigners. Why shouldn’t they? It’s obviously achieving their goals.
But don’t take my word for it. Taliban vows more abductions as hostages freed.
The seven remaining South Korean hostages taken captive last July by the Taliban have been released, and insurgents have vowed they will abduct more foreigners.
“We will do the same thing with the other allies in Afghanistan, because we found this way to be successful,” Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi told The Associated Press by phone on Thursday.
