Skip to comments.The Evidence: Obama Is Undermining U.S. Troops in Afghanistan to Put the Taliban in Power

President Obama has spent the last three years trying to figure out how to turn over Afghanistan to the Taliban without taking the political heat for it. In the process, the Obama Administration has committed a betrayal of our troops so stunning that anything done to them in or after Vietnam pales in comparison.
While the Taliban kills our troops and innocent bystanders in Afghanistan, the Obama Administration is fighting to give them the one thing they can't seem to win on the battle field: control over the whole country.
It is no accident that despite the deployment of 33,000 troops under Obama, the Taliban in Afghanistan has thrived and grown, as documented by a recent Congressional report released earlier this week. This has happened while the Pakistani Taliban and insurgent groups have been assassinated or bombed into relative submission by our drones next door in Pakistan.
Why haven't we been as successful, or as aggressive, in Afghanistan? Evidence is mounting daily that the Obama Administration has not only held back in Afghanistan, but has deliberately undermined the war effort there.
A stunning Washington Post piece on Sunday documented how we've been secretly releasing captured combatants from Afghan jails to placate the Taliban and other insurgent groups and entice them to negotiate with us. Administration officials wouldn't say if these terrorist thugs went on to murder our troops, probably because they have.
Why are we so interested in kissing up to these thugs? Obama ultimately intends for the Taliban to rule Afghanistan again, a development that could destabilize the whole region.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
And the answer, according to this writing:
“It is part of an administration policy called “legitimate Islamism,” and conservatives need to wake up and understand what it means. Basically, as explained by an Obama surrogate in the National Journal recently, Obama is seeking to put radical Islamists in power in country after country on the theory that if they have a “legitimate” government to run, they won’t join Al Qaida and attack us.”
Yeah, doesn’t it say somewhere in the Bible, “He who is murderous in a little shall be given a lot”? (obvious /s)
I thought it was impossible for me to despise these jerkwads any more than I already did. I hate it that this usurper is in a position of power to jerk around our troops.
Obama's announcement of troop withdrawal timelines served one purpose and one purpose only.. To give 'aid and comfort' to the enemy.
I await with bated breath for them so show their face and TRY and defend to this Nam Vet (and all other Vets who support our Military and are appalled at this practice--in addition to the INSANE Rules of Engagement--which puts our Warriors at more risk than they already are) that their refusal to support the R candidate thereby perhaps help re-elect Dear Leader is NUTTIN' to worry about???
“legitimate Islamism” bump
