Report: FBI Quietly Removes Mullah Omar From List of Most Wanted Terrorists…

The State Department still has him on their “Rewards For Justice” list, so who knows when and why the FBI removed him. One has to assume it’s because of the Obama admin’s not-so-secret high-level negotiations with the Taliban.

(Express Tribune) — The Unites States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has removed the name of Afghan Taliban supreme commander Mullah Muhammad Omar from its list of “most wanted terrorists”.

Earlier, reports about the US establishing contacts with Omar had surfaced. The reports said that the US wanted to bring the Taliban to negotiation table in order to end the conflict in Afghanistan.

So far, several claims have been made by the US about negotiations with the Taliban, but Islamabad and Kabul have never been taken into confidence over the much speculated-about talks.

According to reports, the US had offered Taliban control over the south of Afghanistan, while leaving the north for the other political forces under American influence. However, this was rejected by the Taliban.

After 10 months of secret dialogue with Afghanistan’s Taliban insurgents, senior US officials said the talks have reached a “critical juncture” and they will soon know whether a breakthrough is possible, leading to peace talks whose ultimate goal is to end the Afghan war.

US also considered the transfer of an unspecified number of Taliban prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay military prison into Afghan government custody.

In the past, US officials have held about half a dozen meetings with their insurgent contacts, mostly in Germany and Doha with representatives of Omar.
