Taliban say Obama's call on moderates "illogical"
Reuter ^ | Tue Mar 10, 2009 | Reporting by Sayed Salahuddin; Editing by David Fox

Posted on 03/10/2009 5:27:46 PM PDT by the anti-liberal

Afghanistan's Taliban on Tuesday turned down as illogical U.S. President Barack Obama's bid to reach out to moderate elements of the insurgents, saying the exit of foreign troops was the only solution for ending the war.

snip

"The Taliban are united, have one leader, one aim, one policy...I do not know why they are talking about moderate Taliban and what it means?,"

"If it means those who are not fighting and are sitting in their homes, then talking to them is meaningless. This really is surprising the Taliban."

Duh, even the Taliban knows there's no such thing as 'moderate Taliban.'

Reported by Reuters, no less. Can't wait to hear the Marxist Imbecile in Chief's excuse this time - too tired?

Didn't see this posted and thought a few of you here would be interested...

LOL. The Taliban is mocking Plugs and Ears. Or can we just call the team “EarPlugs”

This is definitely a snub. Wonder who'll be next - are they queuing in line? Seems like it.

Thanks Democrats (or is it 'Democratics'?)

Heard on Fox that Bush and Petraeus wanted to do this...so what were they thinking on this issue or did the media twist that around?

This isn’t satire, is it?
LOL, i know i’m seeing Reuters, but it could have just as well be written by the Onion.
I guess Obama needed to hear it from the horse’s mouth that there’s no such thing as a moderate Taliban. I wonder if obama also thinks he can find some moderate Al Qaeda.

Hmm, sounds like one of those "teachable moments" that liberals are always blathering about. Hopefully someone in Washington will use this one to point out to Obama that there are, in fact, no moderate Taliban.

The kicker was at the press conference—

One of the media asked 0—”Can you define the term ‘Moderate Taliban’ for us, Sir?”

And 0 said “You know, kind of like me...”

Chas Freeman was not looking forward to answering questions, I'm sure:
Feinstein said she did not have any concerns over Freeman as of lunchtime Tuesday but that she might change her mind depending on his answers before the intelligence panel.

What’s really sad is that he will continue to speak over their heads and speak to imaginary Taliban moderates in a political ploy that he’s trying to wage on the world stage. Sooner or later more and more people will realize that Obama is nothing but a BS/Conman.

There you have it! The Taliban just called Obama illogical. George W was called much worst, but this is in keeping with change and hope and possibly another great defining moment in his presidency. Maybe he should send the Taliban some classic American movies on DVD and a bag of popcorn.

Zero (at State staff meeting): Well, we tried Kumbaya, that didn't work. What else can we try?

Hillary: We haven't tried singing "We Are The World" yet, have we?

Rahm: Well, not yet, but I'm working on a plan to stab knives into a Hammond Organ like Keith Emerson used to

Zero: Hmmmm, not a bad idea ... give it a try. Otherwise, I'm tapped out and gonna hit the sack.

Obama’s comment resemble a dream more than reality,” said Waheed Mozhdah, an analyst who has written a book on the Taliban.

“Where are the so-called moderate Tal iban? Who are the moderate Taliban?” asked Mozhdah, who was an official in both the Taliban and the Karzai governments.

That reminds me, isn't the Marxist Imbecile in Chief supposed to have a 'team' (army) of 300 advisors advising him?

Not one of them suggested to him that maybe, just maybe, he was - gasp! - wrong on this?

Or maybe one or two did, and he ignored them. Or they're all 'yes' men and women. I'm guessing the latter.

I'm thinking he's intentionally surrounding himself with folks who'll say what he wants to hear, effectively cutting him off from reality. In other words, he's blinding himself.

Just what we need - a blind Pres_ent. How long can this status quo last before something serious gives?
