MI6 ‘held peace talks with Taliban’

The British secret service has engaged in peace talks with senior Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan, it has been claimed.

MI6 agents held a number of discussions, known as “jirgas”, with members of the hardline Islamist group, according to a Daily Telegraph report.

If true, the revelation could embarrass Prime Minister Gordon Brown, coming just weeks after he told MPs: “We will not enter into negotiations with these people.”

Embarrass? Why? Gordon Brown is a politician. Hence, he only speaks nonsense to keep his subjects distracted while he does whatever he wishes.
