New Army Manual Orders Soldiers Not To Criticize Taliban
Judicial Watch ^ | December 11, 2012

Posted on 12/11/2012 1:03:07 PM PST by jazusamo

Here is a strong indicator that the Obama Administration’s crusade to appease Islam has gone too far; a new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other outrageous things.

It gets better; the new manual, which is around 75 pages, suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture— not Taliban infiltration—is responsible for the increase in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces.

The soon-to-be-released Army handbook is still being drafted, but a mainstream newspaper got a sneak preview and published an article that should infuriate the American taxpayers funding the never-ending war on terror. The manual is being created because someone with authority bought the theory that cultural insensitivity is driving insider attacks on U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

More than three dozen insider attacks have killed 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year, according to the article, and some blame “American cultural ignorance.” The bottom line is that troops may experience social-cultural shock and/or discomfort when interacting with Afghan security forces, the new military handbook says. “Better situational awareness/understanding of Afghan culture will help better prepare [troops] to more effectively partner and to avoid cultural conflict that can lead toward green-on-blue violence.”

The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”

At least one high-ranking military official had the backbone to publicly criticize the new manual, albeit through a spokesperson. U.S. Marine General John Allen, the top commander in Afghanistan, doesn’t endorse it and rejected a proposed forward drafted by Army officials in his name. “He does not approve of its contents,” according to a military spokesman quoted in the story.

Earlier this year the Obama Administration changed the way federal agents are trained to combat terrorism and violent extremism by eliminating all materials that shed a negative light on Muslims. Under White House orders, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) destroyed instructional material that characterizes Muslims as prone to violence or terrorism in a government-wide call to end Islamophobia.

Under Obama practically every major federal agency has been ordered to participate in Muslim outreach initiatives, including the Justice Department with a special program to protect Islamic civil rights, Homeland Security meetings with extremist Muslim organizations and the nation’s space agency (NASA) with an unprecedented mission to focus on Muslim diplomacy.

Additionally, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a special order to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties long banned them from the U.S. and the administration sent an America-bashing mosque leader (Feisal Abdul Rauf) who blames U.S. foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks on a Middle Eastern outreach mission. The Obama Administration even ordered a government-funded meal program for home-bound seniors to offer halal cuisine prepared according to Islamic law.

Another Obama outrage, his Muslim friends are insulted so he orders more Political Correctness in the war.

At least U.S. Marine General John Allen realizes when at war we kill the enemy with weapons and not kindness.

"orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia"

Makes sense, because this man was a child rapist:

Yep, you’re both correct. This administration sounds more and more like the antiwar hippies of the Vietnam era, it’s our fault.

We can expect the obozo to tell us US citizens that the Muslim terrorists will afford us the same courtesy when they attack us on our home land. That will really throw the obozo for a spin because at that point he won’t know who he should command, us or the invading Muslims.

Just another example of Zippy aiding and abetting the enemy that Congress turns a blind eye to.

Muhammad was a brain-damaged epileptic Satan worshiper, a terrorist, a mass-murderer, a thief, a slave trader, a serial-rapist and a pedophile.

Did I miss anything?

I thought the first rule of war was to demonize the enemy.

We lost WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam war, the cold war and the war against Islam at the ballot box last November.

Every single person who gave their life for our country since 1918 did so in vain, as the Republic is lost.

Islam is a war plan. A critical fact.

There needs to be some major Courts-Martial on high ranking Generals and Admirals.

Even with Obama as President...we should have some military “leaders” to take a stand against this nonsense

Kille the Taliban, don’t coddle them.

Can you imagine, General Patton, saying “well, those Russians are really sweet people...we should bow down to them”

Once you coddle the enemy, you begin to lose

Given this information, one may only conclude that it is time to quit the country. Leave the Afghans to their own devices, and save our military forces from their C-I-C.
This is pathetic...

Zippy is the enemy and the US is occupied territory. Obama is rallying and unifying the Islamists throughout the world and paving the way for a major assault on what remains of the West.

Lowlife, dirtbag, goat-humping, subhuman POS. Other than that, you got it well-covered.

Kiss the a$$ of the violent, military wing of a violent, angry, hate-filled death cult.
