When the press wants to support peace talks, so pretend Haqqani aren't Taliban. However, Taliban are arranged in tribal ethnic groups to prevent discord. It isn't like a western-pattern military of strangers trained to be together.
The Haqqani Network has been a part of the Taliban since 1980, where it was supported among others by the CIA to fight Russia. they differ from Al Queda in that they're interested only in their country. They'd rather be the family gang that gets their own commodities than foreign corporations.
"Since its inception, the Haqqani Network has aimed to disrupt the Western military and political efforts in Afghanistan, driving them from the country permanently. The group is ideologically aligned with the Taliban, who seek to eradicate Western influence and restructure the government into a strictly Shariah-following state. The central goal is to disrupt the Western military and political efforts in Afghanistan, driving them from the country permanently. Global jihad has not been at the forefront of their goals or ideological foundations, thus minimizing their reach in other regions of the world."
" the Network benefits from financial support from wealthy individuals and organizations in the Gulf region, as well as through organized crime in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Network gets much of its revenue from criminal enterprises such as the illegal sale of chromite, timber smuggling, smuggling of precious jewels and metals. The Network has also utilized kidnapping and extortion in some instances, though this is not thought to be a significant portion of their activity.
It is reported that that the organizational headquarters of the Haqqani Network is in Miram Shah, where the group operates multiple base camps in order to facilitate and conduct activities such as weapons acquisitions, logistical planning, and military strategy formulation. The region is heavily Pashtun, separating the Haqqani network and their heavily centralized, tribal-emulating Pashtu leadership from more decentralized groups such as al-Qaeda. ... With more than 10,000 Taliban, al-Qaeda, and Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) militants under their control, the Haqqani Network orchestrates attacks by diverse militias throughout Pakistan and Afghanistan."
"Taliban militants attacked key buildings near Afghanistan's presidential palace and the U.S. CIA headquarters in Kabul, a brazen assault that could derail attempts for peace talks to end 12 years of war.The Taliban, who have said they are willing to take part in talks with the United States and Afghan President Hamid Karzai's administration, said they launched the early morning assault, which triggered a 90-minute firefight.
...The area is home to the presidential palace compound, the Ministry of Defence and an annexe of the U.S. embassy at the old Ariana Hotel. The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency's Afghanistan station is based there.
But Afghan security officials told Reuters they believed it had been carried out by the Taliban-linked Haqqani Network. The Haqqani Network is accused of masterminding high-profile attacks in Kabul and is believed to have close links to al Qaeda."
