Afghan Taliban open letter to Congress

Published:

Most so-called news outlets begin this story with

In a rambling “open letter” to Congress...

then proceed to not provide the actual text (lest it make a valid point or two) but rather give a dismissive description of its contents and critique its spelling. Given the awful spelling, grammar, and syntax I catch in "mainstream" articles written by people who speak only english (and poorly, at that), I'm inclined to give a break to folks who can get by in 3 or 4 languages.

So much for them informing and you deciding.

Anyway, here's a full text version.

Thanks. The second to the last paragraph says it all..."I would like to bring one last point to your notice, what was your goal to come to Afghanistan? what have you achieved so far (through the war) and what will possibly you achieve in future? Will you be able to obtain your long-term goals in the region only through the war in Afghanistan?"

The American people would like to know the answers to those questions as well.
