Obama Foreign Policy! US Says Taliban Can be Part of Afghan Government as Taliban Murder 21 Outside of Mosque

I keep hearing how awesome Hillary Clinton was as Secretary of State and about her "legacy". This will be her legacy:

US Ambassador to Pakistan, Richard Olson, has said the United States is ready to open the door for talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban, adding that the Afghan Taliban could be part of Afghanistan's future if they met conditions to ensure long-term peace and stability in the war-torn country.
Peace? Are you sure he didn't mean piece? You know, a piece of a Shia here, a piece of an infidel there?
An explosion in a market in northwestern Pakistan on Friday killed at least 21 people and wounded 33 in what police described as a suicide bombing...

Abu Omar, a Taliban commander in the neighboring tribal region of North Waziristan, said in a telephone interview that the attack was in revenge for the killing on Thursday of a Sunni cleric....

Friday’s explosion occurred just after Friday Prayer as worshipers filed out of a Sunni mosque and a nearby Shiite place of worship, police officials said. “People were coming out of the mosque when the explosion occurred,” said one officer in Hangu, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

Another police official in Hangu said a suicide bomber had detonated his explosives. While Shiites were the likely target, the dead included people from both Islamic sects, he said. “There are Sunnis and Shias killed.”

Sure, let's make peace with these people. What could possibly go wrong?

Obama's diplomacy: speak loudly and carry a tiny stick.
