Abu Walid al Masri answers another reader’s questions on his blog

It seems I missed Abu Walid al Masri responding to some more questions about the relationship between al Qaeda and the Taliban.

I don’t know who posed these questions or any more details but his answers are fascinating. They provide more insight into the state of the Taliban-al Qaeda relationship  prior to the fall of the Emirate.

Abu Walid’s response to question three is particularly fascinating.  He says that at the Taliban’s last  Shura meeting (held in the days before the fall of the Emirate)  two thirds of attendees condemned bin Laden and al Qaeda and held them responsible for the war.

He also says that there was disengagement from al Qaeda at this time, for the reasons  I note Abu Walid also mentioned in his article on the capture of Baradar.

There’s more in his response, but this was what struck me as particularly interesting.
