I discussed this on my show today and low and behold, I see this article by Michelle Malkin: "Analysts to Obama: There are no Taliban "moderates", you nitwit". He is clearly out of touch with reality unless, the Taliban are his friends and he doesn't want to see the continuance of thinning out the Taliban gene pool.
From al Reuters: Obama's call on moderate Taliban useless - analysts
