The United States has agreed in principle to release high-ranking Taliban officials from Guantánamo Bay in Cuba in return for the Afghan insurgents’ agreement to open a political office in Qatar for peace negotiations.  Meanwhile is the US negotiating with the Northern Alliance warlords who were invited to a meeting in Berlin in January 9 at the Aspen Institute. The Warlords met with a group of four members of the U.S. House of Representatives for private talks. The label for the meeting was:
AFGHANISTAN 2014 – OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES: MEMBERS OF THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IN DIALOGUE WITH LEADERS FROM NORTHERN, WESTERN AND CENTRAL AFGHANISTAN

Representatives from the Northern Alliance:
Dr. Abdullah Abduallah Head of the National Coalition for Hope and Change
General Abdul Rashid Dostum Leader, National Islamic Movement of Afghanistan
Mohammad Karim Khalili Leader, Islamic Unity Party of Afghanistan
Ahmad Zia Massoud Chairman, National Front
Haji Mohammad Mohaqiq Leader, People’s Unity Party of Afghanistan
Ustad Atta Mohammad Noor Governor of Balkh Province
Yunus Qanuni Former Speaker, Wolesi Jirga
Amrullah Saleh Former Director, National Security Directorate
Hussain Yasa Chairman, Afghanistan Group of Newspapers
Faizullah Zaki Vice Chairman, National Islamic Movement of Afghanistan

Rumors on various websites claim that the agenda for the meeting was to develop a federal system and state.  By gathering warlords and leaders of all minority groups from Afghanistan and excluding the majority ethnic group, the outcome will never be welcomed by Afghans. Afghans will not allow anyone, for its own political and economic intentions to develop scenarios and make decisions for Afghanistan as a nation.  These war criminals that is responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent people and who have gained from the conflict by filling their own pockets are not considered as representatives for the Afghans. These leaders should instead be directed to the Haag Tribunal to stand trial for their acts. These types of meetings will in no way accelerate the peace process but only undermine it since the decisions are made with war criminals.
