I don't understand this. "The U.S. military" almost talk like these meetings and the minutes from them were in the Society Column of the local newspaper, they know so much about them. How can they know so much about these men and what they say yet not know where they are?
Leaders of al-Qaida and the Taliban have held a series of meetings in Pakistan to discuss how to disrupt Afghanistan's upcoming elections, the U.S. military said Monday.
"Relatively high-ranking" members of both groups as well as rebel Afghan faction Hezb-e Islami Gulbuddin have held several meetings on how to derail the Oct. 9 vote, spokesman Maj. Scott Nelson said.
Considering the problems people in Afghanistan and Iraq are having just to hold an elections our grips about how our election are held really seem minor in comparison.
