Harper And The MSM Seem Unaware That Karzai Previously Supported The Taliban

"There were many wonderful people in the Taliban".
Hamid Karzai - 1998
The Washington Post

Our Prime Minister was shocked this week when Afgan President Hamid Karzai, expressed his frustration by saying that he may 'join the Taliban'.

Too bad that Stephen Harper doesn't read my blog. If he did, he would have seen my posting from November, 2007 where I pointed out that Hamid Karzai had previous involvement with the Taliban.
Buckdog Politics

"When the Taliban emerged in the mid 1990s, Karzai, like many other Afghans, supported them, because he saw them as a force that could finally end the violence and corruption in his country. However, he later broke with them and refused to serve as their ambassador to the United Nations, telling friends he felt the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) was wrongly using them.[18] Karzai recently stated that "there were many wonderful people in the Taliban."

Canada's military mission (war) in Afghanistan continues with only some of the facts and a whole lot of failed militaristic ideology.

.... oh and let's not forget the day that President Ronald Reagan met the Taliban and PRAISED THEM!!!

Of when UnoCal brought a Taliban delegation to Sweetwater, Texas. Or when then Halliburton CEO Cheney sought to get US sanctions lifted against the Talibs.

Of course Karzai supported them early on. They're predominantly Pashtun and, at the outset, they were the only viable (i.e. Pakistan ISI-supported) alternative to Hekmatyar.
