— Saudi Arabia said during a visit by Afghan President Hamid Karzai Tuesday that it will not get involved in peacemaking in Afghanistan unless the Taliban stops providing shelter and severs all ties with Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaida movement.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai is visiting Saudi Arabia hoping for an active Saudi role in his plan to persuade Taliban militants to switch sides. He will meet with Saudi officials today after performing the pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca.

Saudi Arabia has a unique relationship with Taliban since it was one of the few countries to recognize the regime before it was ousted in 2001 and has acted as an intermediary before.

"Saudi Arabia has a unique relationship with Taliban since it was one of the few countries to recognize the regime before it was ousted in 2001 and has acted as an intermediary before."

The real bond between the Saudi nation and the Taliban is the fact that they both are members of the Wahabi Islam sect, the most reprehensible, vile regressive refuge for human scum invented in recent centuries.

The Saudi dictator princes know full well that in all probability that Bin Laden has been dead and buried under a mountain of rubble in Afghanistan for years. Bin Laden is deader than Elvis, we just arent saying so to prevent him from becoming a martyr. Al Queda is cooperating with this myth for their own purposes.

I find it somewhat ironic that western military, intelligence and political establishments are cooperating with Al Queda to keep Osama bin Laden "alive".
