Russia Shares Intelligence With Taliban Killers of Americans
December 23, 2015
Russia says it’s sharing intelligence with the Taliban on the Islamic State as "the Taliban interest objectively coincides with ours," according to the Russian foreign ministry, as reported by the Washington Post. The move makes for strange bedfellows, as the group sprang out of the ashes of the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan and the Taliban remains on Russia’s official list of designated terrorist groups. The Taliban and the Islamic State have been waging a low grade war with each other recently as disaffected Taliban have defected from the group and taken on the mantle of the Islamic State to challenge their former organization.
