A major controversy erupted inside Kabul’s presidential palace last week after the country’s interim government announced internal clashes over who deserved credit for America’s return to power, a report said. status has been abolished.

BBC report On Wednesday, citing senior Taliban officials, said the fighting was between two factions who wanted to take credit for defeating the US.


The BBC reported that the Taliban’s deputy prime minister, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, and Khalil ur-Rahman Haqqani, a senior leader of the Haqqani network, “exchanged strong words as their followers were at odds with each other.”

Baradar’s position is that diplomacy in Qatar drove the day, while the infamous Haqqani network insists that the victory was won by his unrelenting desire to fight.

Baradar has not been seen in public and there are rumors that he may have been killed. The Taliban have denied that there ever was a brawl and released an unverified video that claimed to show Baradar alive and well.

Following the withdrawal of Western troops last month and the Taliban’s abrupt return to power, the US and its allies have used funding, possible recognition and warnings of isolation to steer clear of repeating their repressive regimes of the 1990s. At the time, the Taliban implemented a harsh interpretation of Islamic law, including severe restrictions on women and minorities.

The Taliban has been trying to establish itself as a moderate group since taking control of Kabul following widespread criticism of the US departure. But critics say Sen. Lindsey Graham has done little to build trust in Westerners after setting up a “lineup of thugs and butchers”.
