Real News Video with Pepe Escobar: The Taliban riddle

Pepe Escobar: Everybody is making a mess out of the AfPak theatre, including Washington

"In the first part of this report Pepe Escobar examines how the Obama administration is fed up with corrupt, inefficient Afghan President Hamid Karzai. And how the Obama administration is also fed up with his neighbor, corrupt Pakistani President Asif Zardari, who keeps making deals with the Taliban. To make matters worse, Pakistani Taliban groups have now formed an alliance to better fight the Americans. And to top it all "Taliban" means a lot of groups with different agendas. What remains constant is Washington's strategy to talk only to "good" Taliban."
