Wow. I bet they get a corner office with a nice view of downtown.
From Fox News.
Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Friday endorsed the opening of a “Taliban office” in a third-party country to “facilitate” reconciliation talks — just one plank of the post-war plan the two leaders discussed during Karzai’s visit to Washington.
……Obama said the purpose would be to facilitate talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban. The U.S. earlier had gotten behind Afghan-led negotiations with some factions of the Taliban, though this is the first time the two leaders have formally endorsed an official Taliban office.
The Taliban continue to fuel unrest in the region, though. Their Pakistan affiliate was linked to the attempted Times Square bombing in 2010. The group continues to commit brutal attacks on civilians. Referring to the Afghan side of the border, Obama nevertheless said that the Taliban have been driven out of their strongholds in most major cities.
Obama is a stupid, dangerous scatterbrain, with no clue how to run a country or a war. The “community organizer” in the White House thinks his socialist ideology and his Dhimmi approach are wonderful ideas.
While he plays patty cake with the bad guys, they continue to attack American troops and NATO facilities.
I cannot fathom great Generals like Patton, MacArthur, or McAuliffe tolerating this kind of chickenshit from a so-called “Commander-in-Chief”.
Trying to win the hearts and minds of a gutter culture stuck in the perverted philosophy of a 7th century Islamic zealot, won’t stop them from jihad. Killing them will. We should be sending them to hell, not shaking their hands.
The so-called partnership between American Soldiers and Afghan troops is an epic fail. The Taliban and Al Qaeda have infiltrated the Afghan forces and most certainly have influence in Karzai’s regime.
Obama’s asinine announcement of complete troop withdrawal in 2014, has the Taliban giddy with anticipation. They can hardly wait. Not only do they get the benefit of knowing when we will leave Afghanistan, they get the green light to pick up where they left off before we invaded.
You don’t negotiate with the enemy, you annihilate them. You don’t give them office space, you crush them to the point where they will never again have the ability to do harm.
The whole point of going into Afghanistan was not just to get Bin Laden, (even though he escaped to Pakistan), but to defeat one of the enemies responsible for the 9/11 atrocities. They have not been defeated, they’ve been propped up by a SCOAMF who is totally incapable of making good decisions.
Yep, the country’s in good hands.
