Karzai suspends security talks with U.S.; Taliban rockets kill 4 Americans
washington post ^ | 6/19/2013 | Tim Craig and Ernesto Londoņo

Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Wednesday suspended negotiations with Washington over a security agreement that would regulate the presence of U.S. troops here beyond 2014, apparently angered by the U.S.-backed initiative to start formal peace talks with the Taliban in Qatar.

The announcement came a day after Taliban envoys appeared before reporters to give a U.S.-demanded statement that they did not want to plan or launch attacks on other countries from Afghan soil, and were open to talking with other Afghans. Those pledges met U.S. conditions for opening a Taliban political office in Qatar.

However, the Taliban representatives also told reporters that their group would continue fighting NATO and Afghan troops inside Afghanistan even as the U.S. and Taliban delegations explore the possibility of peace talks. In keeping with that statement, the Taliban asserted responsibility on Wednesday morning for a rocket attack on a large U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan that killed four American troops.

Hours later, the Afghan government charged in a statement that Washington was being erratic in its Afghan policy.

“In view of the contradictions between acts and the statements made by the United States of America in regard to the peace process, the Afghan government suspended the negotiations,” over the terms of the bilateral security agreement, the Afghan government said.

...a traitor.

He has consistently sided against the US and with every Islamist force in the world ever since taking office. The “Taliban talks” are simply official surrender negotiations.

I feel bad for the Afghanis who initially trusted us and thought that we were serious about fighting back against the Islamists. And I feel sorry for all of our people who have been killed and whose deaths are now being insulted and made meaningless by our Islamist president.

We have a contract with Karzai to provide him with hard cash for the next ten years at least.

What the WP article doesn’t say, is that Obama was talking to the Taliban, WITHOUT the Afghan government!!!! Just review it again — Obama is talking to the Taliban, WITHOUT THE AFGHAN GOVERNMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What is he negotiating — how to hand over Afghanistan back to the Taliban and Al Qaeda???????!!!!!!

The AP article does say it:

“Hamid Karzai is upset over a U.S. and Taliban announcement the day before that they would begin preliminary peace talks in Qatar without the Afghan government.”

Karzai sets new conditions for talks with Taliban

You need to realize the magnitude of this — the US government ignores and excludes the legitimate government in Afghanistan to talk to the Terrorists in Afghanistan— remember that the Taliban supported Al Qaeda, that’s why we went into Afghanistan and got rid of the Taliban government in the first place. And now Obama is negotiating with the terrorists, behind the back of the legitimate Afghan government.

Karzai suspends talks with U.S. over Taliban agreement

http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-karzai-suspends-talks-with-us-20130619,0,4873635.story

“The Afghan president on Wednesday suspended talks with the United States on a new security deal to protest the way his government was being left out of initial peace negotiations with the Taliban meant to find a way to end the nearly 12-year war.

Karzai’s statement followed an announcement Tuesday by the U.S. and the Taliban that they would pursue bilateral talks in Qatar before the Afghan government was brought in.”

Karsi is about to learn the hard way not to trust nor believe the United States Government.

And as for as the deaths of the four Americans goes, only their families and insurance companies care. The majority of voters damn sure don’t. If they did, they would not have put a son of a bitch like obama in charge of them. All that matters to them is that they continue to receive their freebies and are made to feel secure. The media surly don’t. Their joy and concern is they each get their share of kissung obama’s ass and sucking his penis. So again it comes back to their family and insurance companies. Their family, because they are family. Their insurance companies because they have to pay out money. If America the Nation gave a rat’s ass, they would not put bastards such as Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and obama in command of them.

Instead of being nice to secure a refuge for himself an his family, Karzai is giving what 0b0z0 is used to getting from all, the finger!

Obama has sided with the terrorists and/or Islamists over and above the governments that were (at least in theory) cooperating with our anti-terrorism measures EVERY TIME. Iran, Libya, Egypt, Syria, and now we can openly say Afghanistan as well.

Obama told the Egyptian ambassador in January of 2010 that he would start on the “Muslim agenda” once he got Obamacare passed, and that is the ONE promise he’s made good on.

US taxpayers are arming the Al Qaeda “opposition” in Syria - those who have said once they finish the job in Syria they’re coming for America. Maybe that’s why Obama needs to arm them, eh? They’re taking too long finishing up in Syria and not getting to America in time to beat the leaks coming out now that, if taken seriously, could put that illegal usurper and those who accomplished his coup in the slammer (or worse) where they belong. Now he’s making sure the Taliban in Afghanistan ca help out when Al Qaeda in Syria is ready to attack us...

It is NEVER, NEVER, NEVER a good idea to have a foreign enemy combatant in control of your entire government. When will Congress figure that out and actually do something for this country, for once?

Whoever has to try to pick up the pieces once the foreign enemy combatant is finally out of our White HOuse will have a very, very difficult time finding any allies willing to stand with us. Obama is destroying this nation’s future. The only people who still believe in the US government are the ones sucking off the government, and they’ll never quit believing until the teat runs dry because all the people pitching into the system have been bled dry and/or executed.

And that includes the members of Congress, with very, very few exceptions.

<....”the US government, (Obama)ignores and excludes the ‘legitimate’ government in Afghanistan to talk to the Terrorists (Taliban) in Afghanistan”....>

The same in Syria...bypassing Assad.
The same in Egypt...bypassing Mubarak
The same in Libya...bypassing Qaddafi

All of these leaders ‘refused’ to be a part of the NWO. The powers that be are eliminating all who oppose or are not cooperating with the Global Agenda.

I should clarify: In Iran it was the opposition who were resisting the terrorist Islamist official government, and Obama would not support the opposition. In all the others the official government was cooperating with the US and Obama made sure they fell - in Libya through the use of force, ensuring that Ghadaffi’s weapons went to the terrorists.
