A senior Afghan peace negotiator has been shot dead in Kabul, officials say. Arsala Rahmani was a former Taliban minister and a key member of Afghanistan's High Peace Council, which leads Afghan efforts to negotiate a peace deal with the Taliban. Correspondents say his death is a major blow to President Hamid Karzai as Mr Rahmani was a key figure in reaching out to Taliban commanders.
Last year the chief of the peace council was killed in a suicide attack. Burhannudin Rabbani was killed by a bomb hidden in the turban of a suicide attacker posing as a Taliban peace envoy last September. His US-educated son, Salahuddin Rabbani, was appointed to replace him last month.... Police say that Mr Rahmani was shot dead on Sunday morning by an unidentified gunman while on his way to work in western Kabul, in what was described as a carefully planned attack.NYTIMES:
“His assassination is a big loss, it will affect the peace process because he played an important role in mediating the peace talks and was a trusted person among the Taliban,” Mr. Shafiullah said. Mr. Rahmani had been the minister of higher education during the Taliban regime and was known as a relative moderate.OBAMA'S POLICIES OF APPEASEMENT HAVE HAD A NET NEGATIVE EFFECT ON OUR SECURITY AND THE SECURITY OF OUR ALLIES.
EVEN IF IF THE ECONOMY WAS HUMMING AND SURGING - WHICH IT AIN'T, THEN THIS ALONE WOULD STILL BE REASON ENOUGH TO VOTE OBAMA OUT.
VOTE ACCORDINGLY: VOTE ROMNEY!
