Afghan peace talks dead 'for the time being' and US won't enter any agreement - Pompeo

Deep State wins again. Surprise, surprise! Afghan peace talks dead 'for the time being' and US won't enter any agreement - Pompeo | 08 Sept 2019 | US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that peace negotiations with Afghanistan's Taliban are dead and that Washington will not enter any future agreement without "commitments" from the militants. Appearing on a round of cable news shows Sunday morning, Pompeo told one of these, Fox News, that negotiations with the Taliban are dead "for the time being," adding that Washington is recalling its special envoy to Afghanistan to work out its next steps. Also appearing on CNN, Pompeo said that the US would not enter into any future agreement with the Taliban without "significant commitments" from the fighters, who now control more Afghan territory than at any point since the US invasion in 2001. [Wow! Looks like lots of wasted billions so the CIA could maintain its Afghan poppy fields and opium routes.]
