Obama/Qatar Secret Deal To Reprogram the Already Guantanamo Brain-Scrubbed Akhund

[According to this report, Akhund is supposed to be re-brainwashed into a “moderate Islamist” politician while in Qatari hands.  Other press sources report that these Taliban will be settled among the civilian population, while there.]

The Obama administration is optimistic that if Fazl could be left to able Qatari hands, he could be recycled as an Islamist politician for a democratic era.

3. Biodata:
fazl_mullah_mohammadMullah Mohammad Fazl Akhund Mullah Fazl Mazlum Mulla Muhammad Fazal Akhondwas was released from Guantanamo detention facility.(20140601) He was born 1967 or 1968 in Charchno, Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan. He is a Kakar, originally from Tirin Kot  in Uruzgan, and is also old enough to have fought at a junior level during the 1980s jihad. As of Dec. 29, 2011, he has been held at Guantánamo for nine years 11 months.

Fazl is said to be responsible for the killing of thousands of Afghanistan’s Shiite Muslims between 1998 and 2001. According to US military documents made public by WikiLeaks, he was also on the scene of a November 2001 prison riot that killed CIA operative Johnny Micheal Spann, the first American who died in combat in the Afghan war. There is no evidence, however, that Fazl played any direct role in Spann’s death.

He was possibly accountable for the execution of eight Iranian diplomats in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif.
Fazl inspires visceral hatred in the Iranian mind and could create misunderstandings in Pakistan-Iran relations (which have been on an upswing in recent years) and put Islamabad on the horns of a dilemma vis-a-vis Mullah Omar.

Fazl is also a notorious personality from the Central Asian and Russian viewpoint insofar as he used to be the Taliban’s point person for al-Qaeda and its regional affiliates such as the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) and Chechen rebels. He was also in charge of the strategic Kunduz region bordering the “soft underbelly” of Central Asia where he was based with IMU chief Juma Namangani at the time of the US intervention in October 2011.

Fazl belongs to the “pre-Haqqani clan” era. Will the Haqqani network – a key component of the Taliban-led insurgency from its base in Pakistan’s tribal areas – accept Fazl’s “seniority” and give way to him? Pakistan may have to prioritize its “strategic assets”; it is a veritable minefield.

The Obama administration is optimistic that if Fazl could be left to able Qatari hands, he could be recycled as an Islamist politician for a democratic era.

In February 2011, the Afghan High Peace Council named a half-dozen it wanted released as a goodwill gesture. The list included Fazl; senior Taliban military commander Noorullah Noori; former deputy intelligence minister Abdul Haq Wasiq; and Khairullah Khairkhwa, a former interior minister.

Now it seemes not clear Fazl and four other Taliban members detained under US custody will be handed over to Afghan authorities or to Qatar.  It’s not clear if they will be set free or remain under further custody.(20111231)

It is rumored that Fazl might have the credentials to bring Mullah Omar on board for launching formal peace talks. He is certainly one of the finest products of Pakistan’s madrassas and he enjoyed terrific equations with the ISI. (Declassified U.S. State Department documents cite him as a key figure in the Taliban’s capture of Kabul in 1996.) His bonding with the Islamist forces in Pakistan and the ISI can be useful channels of communication to persuade Islamabad to cooperate with the U.S.-led peace talks or, at the very least, refrain from undercutting.  But Fazl also evokes hostile sentiments from the Hazaras but not so much from the Tajiks (Ahmed Shah Massoud negotiated prisoner exchanges with him) or the Uzbekis (he worked with the U.S. Special Forces in November 2001 while in Rashid Dostum’s custody in Qala-i-Jangi.) Fazl’s appearance can throw the erstwhile Northern Alliance groups into disarray. But Fazl is a trump card for the U.S. on because he is an antidote to Iran’s influence in Afghanistan and can create imbalance in the delicate Iran-Pakistan equations. Tehran cannot easily forgive him for his war crimes. (20120109)

One of Obama’s Freed Taliban Leaders Is Brother To TTP Founder Mullah Dadullah Akhund

[NOTICE RESEMBLANCE]

“the released ones that five heads of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan namely Mulla Muhammad Fazal Akhund, Mulla Noorulla Noori, Mulla Khairulla Khairkhwa, Mulla Abdul Haq Waseeq and Moulavi Muhammad Nabi who had been incarcerated for the last thirteen years in ‘Guantanamo Jail’”–Taliban website

[Amidst all of the uproar and noise resounded through the Western media over Obama’s exchange of 5 Top Taliban leaders for one American deserter, we learn from the Taliban themselves that one of the released Taliban is the brother of Taliban legend Mullah Dadullah, a.k.a. the Godfather of Pakistani Taliban (TTP).  No other media sites are confirming my observation, at this point, but the relationship is undeniable; the two militant leaders named Akhund are  both from the Kakar tribe of Kalai-Kakaran village in Uruzgam.]

 

 

 

 

The Inevitable End Result of Public Diplomacy In Negotiations With Terrorists

[Everybody wants to be on “Taliban TV,” to negotiate for their kid’s release.  Why were these people in Afghanistan in the first place?  It is perhaps to be expected that the next anti-American Americans to want to negotiate publicly with the Taliban would be someone like this Joshua Boyle, who is allegedly connected by family history to “al-Qaeda,” or to bin Laden (SEE BOYLE-KHADR FAMILY TREE BELOW).]

Videos Show Western Couple ‘Held In Afghanistan’

The families of Caitlan Coleman and Joshua Boyle say the deal to free Sgt Bowe Bergdahl prompted them to come forward.

Video: Missing Couple Shown In ‘Taliban Video’

The family of an American women reportedly being held captive with her husband and their child in Afghanistan has come forward with videos that show them asking Barack Obama for help.

The videos, obtained by The AP news agency, are the first clues into what happened to Caitlan Coleman and Joshua Boyle following their disappearance in late 2012.

“Boyle’s ex-wife is Zainab Khadr, whose father has been linked to Al-Qaeda and whose brother, Omar Khadr, the only Canadian citizen ever held in Guantanamo Bay.”

The two videos were emailed to Ms Coleman’s father last summer by an Afghan man who identified himself as having ties to the Taliban, the AP reported.

The families told the news agency that they decided to come forward with the videos now in light of the recent publicity over the release of US Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl.

Sgt Bergdahl was captured in 2009 after he apparently walked away from his military post in the Paktika province, along the Pakistani border.

US Army Sgt Bowe Bergdahl was released on Saturday

His freedom nearly five years later was secured on Saturday after the Obama administration controversially agreed to release five Taliban leaders from the US prison at Guantanamo Bay.

The families of Ms Coleman and Mr Boyle told the AP that they were disappointed that their loved ones were not freed as part of the same deal.

Mr Boyle’s father, Canadian judge Patrick Boyle, told the AP: “It would be no more appropriate to have our government turn their backs on their citizens than to turn their backs on those who serve.”

The couple, who relatives described as well-intentioned, but naive adventure seekers, vanished while travelling in a mountainous region near the Afghan capital. Ms Coleman was pregnant at the time of their disappearance.

The two videos sent to Ms Coleman’s father last July and September are the only proof-of-life the families have received since.

In one video, Ms Coleman, 28, appeals to “my president, Barack Obama” for help.

In the second video, she says: “I would ask that my family and my government do everything that they can to bring my husband, child and I to safety and freedom.”

Ms Coleman is seen in the video wearing a black garment that covers most of her body, while her husband is seated beside her with a long beard.

US law enforcement officials investigating the couple’s disappearance told the AP that they believe the videos are authentic, but said they provide no details on when or where the footage was shot.

Relatives said the last direct contact they had from the couple was an email from Mr Boyle sent on October 8, 2012. He told family he was sending the email from an internet cafe in a “unsafe” part of Afghanistan.

The last withdrawals from the couple’s bank account were made in Kabul on October 8 and 9.

An Afghan official told the AP two months later that the couple had been abducted in the Taliban stronghold Wardak Province.
