Do Not Reward Taliban Treachery
IBD Editorials ^ | February 27, 2012

War On Terror: As the Taliban assassinate U.S. military officers and poison troop chow in Afghanistan, the president secretly plans the release of Taliban prisoners from Gitmo.

Whose side is this commander in chief on? Just days before members of the Taliban took credit for infiltrating the Afghan Interior Ministry and murdering two American officers, the Obama administration was finalizing a secret deal with the terror group.

"If all goes as hoped," reported Reuters, "U.S. and Qatari negotiators will meet soon to nail down final details for transferring Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo prison — a momentous step for President Obama, the Afghan war and perhaps U.S. foreign policy as well."

The deal reportedly includes a political office for the Taliban in Qatar and possible power-sharing for the banned terrorist group in Kabul. What does the U.S. get out of the deal? More treachery and bloodshed.

On Saturday, a Taliban agent planted inside the high-security Interior Ministry murdered in cold blood a U.S. major and lieutenant colonel while they were visiting the building. The Taliban operative, posing as a ministry employee, pulled out a gun and shot the two unarmed officers in the head at close range.

The Taliban also claimed credit for infiltrating a NATO base in Afghanistan and poisoning fruit and coffee with bleach in a mess hall.

The murder of the two soldiers, which was carried out by an insurgent wearing an Afghan national army uniform, was not the first instance of Afghan security forces turning on U.S. or NATO troops.

Our foreign policy is truly upside down with the appeasers in charge.

1. Do they not remember that the Taliban was ground central for al-Queda who attacked us on 9/11?
2. Do they not remember the photos of women being shot in a soccor stadium by the Taliban and all the other atrocities that so many women and children have endured?
3. Do they not pay attention to countless reports from the CIA, NSA, NSC, DOD listing various Islamis plans to kill us every day around the world? Thankfully, we still have some loyal people who make it a big deal.
4. Do they not read a frigging newspaper or web about the daily atrocities by Islamists in Afganiscrap and Pakicrap, not to mention around the world?

I am so disgusted with our children in DC. And here I thought Bill Clinton was bad for getting BJ's in the oval office. Sheesh, that's light weight compared to bambi bowing and hilliary's suck up job to the Taliban/Islamists!

I actually now hate our representatives. Sure the word hate will put me on a list, if I'm not already. Don't care...getting to old to hold my tongue. Of course, I won't do anything about it, but I will stand by...

5. What will it take for DC to finally understand that we are under a slow-motion clandestine plan to insinuate Islamic doctrine into our Republic? What?

I am so disgusted with the children in DC. And here I thought Bill Clinton was bad for getting BJ's in the oval office. Sheesh, that's light weight compared to bambi bowing/apologizing and hilliary's sucking up to the Taliban/Islamists! Sheesh, I'm a simple ex-aviation sailor and just read some and know what works and what doesn't.

I actually now hate our representatives. Sure the word hate will put me on a list, if I'm not already. Don't care...getting to old to hold my tongue. Of course, I won't do anything about it, but I will stand by...

Our foreign policy has been one of Muslim appeasement beginning with overlooking the Armenian genocide.

We sided with the Muslims in Koscovo.

The last President to have a pair and stand up to the Muslims was Thomas Jefferson in taking on the Barbary pirates.
