The Taliban Condemns ISIS

It's pretty bad when the Taliban are the moderates.

The Taliban has strongly condemned a graphic Islamic State video which showed captives being blown up with explosives - an act the Afghan group labeled intolerable, perpetrated by irresponsible ignorant individuals.

Only a short while ago, the two groups were out of each other's way - Islamic State over in Iraq and Syria, and the Taliban in its native Afghanistan and Pakistan. However, as the June footage from the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar seems to indicate, the battle for supremacy is well underway there now.

Gee, I don't know who to root for...
