Once Again, Obama Extends Hand to Taliban… Once Again, Taliban Vows to Continue to Fight
The definition of insanity…
Yesterday, Barack Obama once again reached out to the Taliban terrorist organization.
The White House reported:
Over the past year, we’ve dramatically increased our civilian presence, with more diplomats and development experts working alongside our troops, risking their lives and partnering with Afghans. Going forward, there must be a continued focus on the delivery of basic services, as well as transparency and accountability. We will also fully support an Afghan political process that includes reconciliation with those Taliban who break ties with al Qaeda, renounce violence and accept the Afghan constitution.
The Taliban released a statement in response to the former community organizer’s speech.
All Voices reported:
In their response, the Taliban claimed that the exit or withdrawal of U.S. troops is not the result of success but rather an effect of increased U.S. casualties and the cost of the Afghan war, which the U.S. can no longer afford.
Mujahid vowed that the Taliban would continue the fight agains coalition forces. He said that “with the presence of foreign forces in our country there will be no peace and security. The interference of foreign forces in the affairs of Afghanistan … will only increase casualties.”
Last year Taliban militants said the idea of reconciliation offered by Secretary of State Clinton was a “lunatic idea.”
In May of this year a Taliban-linked terrorist tried to blow a hole in Times Square.
