Skip to comments.Taliban say Obama's call on moderates "illogical"
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.
"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."

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”
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?
“I do not know why they are talking about moderate Taliban and what it means?”
Good Lord we miss Dick Cheney!
You heard wrong. They were talking locals and tribesmen, not taliban.
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.
Duh! Which proves that even a bunch of primitive, illiterate, sub-human animals are smarter than all the American 'rats combined.
Obama’s not to tired...He’s too busy working on his surrender plan...
Is there such a thing as moderate be-headers?
didn’t Biden say something about 70% being moderate??
based on his own imagination
i am getting sick of Obozo calling them “ Tolly-bahn.” Yeesh and then “Poki-stan” ...what a jerk he is and Biden going on and on about how in “my opinion” as if he understands warfare, etc.
Very different, I imagine!
The Taliban leader said:
“What a disappointment! We’re sorry we voted for him...”
“Laughing-stock” is too mild a word for what America’s standing has become in the world. No one takes Obama seriously.
I think FDR should have reached out to moderate Kamikaze pilots.
The Taliban know that Obummer is a fool.
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...”
In other words, he's the perfect American Pres_ent for our enemies.
And the very worst for America and her allies.
The Marxist Imbecile in Chief is satire personified.
Covering this tonight on Covert Radio.
LOL! Good one!
Geez, even the Taliban knows 0 is a fool to suggest that there are moderate Taliban. Evil cave men with Kalashnikovs know this but the president of the US doesn’t. That is really really sad.
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.http://michellemalkin.com/2009/03/10/and-another-one-bites-the-dust-charles-freeman-out/
If Feinstein said this, how much more so the others?
Yeah, you’d think the Sec. of State would’ve clued him in. Oh wait... never mind.
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.
How freakin' sad is that?
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.
Amateur hour at the White House, with your host Barak Obama.
Man, things are bad.
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.
Perhaps because Obama considers himself a “moderate” Marxist?
(shakes head) sad, yet plausible.

Obama’s call on moderate Taliban useless - analysts
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.
ZERO strikes once again making America look like a Fool thru ZERO’S Stupidity, Arrogance and Naivete’! ZERO is the kind goofball that everyone felt was a Nitwit in School! No WONDER AXELROD makes ZERO read Teleprompters, the Crackhead burned out any brains that were in that Skull along time ago:-)
Similar to my first thought. What are the moderates, the ones who cut your hand off instead of your head?
Somebody ping Newt Gingrich and David Frum.
Woo hoo. There will be hell to pay now.
Moderate Taliban is like saying Moderate William Ayers!!!
Only a True Dope could believe either existed:-)
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?
Real American's will want Zero to fail, the fake American's can't stand the truth.
The Taliban won’t even talk to President Karzai.
It's illogical to everyone in the world except liberals, whose mental disorder invariably prevents them from seeing the obvious.
