Crocker: Moderate Taliban Just Want Peace | Antiwar.com

Hope, like the war, springs eternal.

At least if you’re outgoing US Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker, who today gave an interview to the Associated Press predicting major moves forward in the peace process with the Taliban, despite years of such predictions amounting to nothing so far.

Crocker went on to say that the moderate Taliban figures, naming leadership council member Agha Jan Motasim, were interested primarily in peace and had been “sending out feelers.” He insisted only a few “hard-liners” were opposed to the peace process.
