Monday’s attack at Kabul University is looming large between the government and Taliban, even though ISIS claimed the attack, the Taliban denounced it, and there’s no evidence to the contrary. Some Afghan officials are still blaming the Taliban,, or al-Qaeda.
That’s not without purpose, as the US deal with the Taliban was clear about them cutting al-Qaeda ties. The Taliban reiterated that they’ve done so, saying there is no al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and they won’t allow them to have a presence.
The Taliban accused government VP Amrullah Saleh of being part of a conspiracy against them by trying to blame them. This is just the latest source of disagreement that is holding back the peace process.
And while the government tries to assign blame, at least 13 police have been arrested over the attack, and are facing charges of negligence.
