Taliban Travel?

One of the lasting questions surrounding the failed Taliban-Camp David summit is how the terrorist organization would actually travel to the US. Would they arrive on a military jet or fly on a variation of “Not Quite United” air?

Trump says he was set this weekend to meet at Camp David with leaders of the Taliban. But Trump says he called off that meeting, and a separate one with Afghanistan’s president, after a Taliban bombing that killed an American soldier and 11 other people.

Still, it’s becoming apparent that Trump tried to use the anniversary of 9-11 as a political opportunity for his struggling presidency. Former Defense Secretary General Mattis, appearing on CBS news, said that Obama and Bush knew not to trust the Taliban, but Trump, who banned peaceful Muslims with from entering the US was willing to allow an organization that still cheered the deaths of 3000 Americans 18 years ago in order to bail out his floundering administration.

To answer the travel question, the only possible means of travel were somewhere buried inside Trump’s imagination, a narrow and dangerous territory in and of itself.
