Tony Blair Aide: Let's Chat With Hamas, Al Qaeda and the Taliban

You really have to wonder what's inside the head of these appeasers. If they haven't figured out yet that there is no talking to the monsters who want to murder you, then they're really beyond hope.
Jonathan Powell, one of former Prime Minister Tony Blair's top advisers, said Western governments must talk to terror groups including Hamas, al-Qaida and the Taliban to persuade them to stop their campaigns of violence.

Powell, Blair's chief of staff from 1995 to 2007, said the Northern Ireland peace settlement was made possible through a secret channel the government established with the Irish Republican Army - and that similar lines should now be created with other terror groups.
Is he so naive to compare the IRA with these Islamofascist killers?

Apparently so.
Powell told The Guardian: "There's nothing to say to al-Qaida and they've got nothing to say to us at the moment, but at some stage you're going to have to come to a political solution as well as a security solution.

"And that means you need the ability to talk."
Of course, if Barack [deleted] Obama is ever elected, and that really looks doubtful now, he's probably up for it.
"It's very difficult for democratic governments to do - talk to a terrorist movement that's killing your people," he said.
Hmm, funny how that is, no?

On the upside, this moronic modern-day incarnation of Neville Chamberlain no longer has any influence, and probably should just shut up and disappear.
A Foreign Office spokesman said: "It is inconceivable that HMG would ever seek to reach a mutually acceptable accommodation with a terrorist organisation like al-Qaida."
