… Capturing Osama Bin Laden's Former Fortress In Tora Bora

"Tora Bora, the mountain redoubt that was once Osama bin Laden's fortress, fell to the Islamic State early Wednesday, handing the extremists a significant strategic and symbolic victory, according to Afghan officials and local elders and residents.

Taliban fighters who had previously controlled the extensive cave and tunnel complex fled overnight after a determined, weeklong assault by the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, according to villagers fleeing the area on Wednesday.

Hazrat Ali, a member of Parliament and a prominent warlord from the area who helped the Americans capture Tora Bora from Al Qaeda in 2001, said that the offensive was prompted by the American decision to drop the so-called mother of all bombs on an Islamic State network of tunnels in Achin District in April. The 20,000-pound bomb was thought to be the largest non-nuclear bomb ever deployed…"

This is a huge symbolic victory for the Islamic State …. and (equally) a huge shock to both the Taliban and the Afghan government….

How on Earth do you conclude that the Taliban and IS are "the same thing?" Do you mean that they are literally the same organization? Or only that their ideologies are effectively identical?

The major difference between the two groups is that the Taliban are followers of Islam but on the other hand the members of ISIS are mostly supporters of Muslims.

Competing "brands". May they compete to mutual destruction.

The key to red on red is to have your blue forces far far away.

they are definitvly the same thing….hate toward free world people..common goal to impose their medieval evil vision to the whole planet…are they any other important things to take into account or just subtilities? and i really don't believe they are fighting each other

@Italian: Not to the death, and that's a pity. But I don't see why you would doubt that at this point there is serious infighting.

Regardless, it's a good thing when our enemies are killing each other.

@Italian: Are you saying that they are so clever that they are making us think that they are killing each other?

In 2015 there was talk of a merger, Al-Qaeda and ISIS, but nothing since then.
