Obama’s Peace Partners, the Taliban, Attack Bagram Air Base on New Year’s Eve

“Look, the Taliban, per se, is not our enemy.”
– VP Joe Biden
December 2011

Two weeks ago the White House told us that the Taliban was not our enemy.

Iran Press TV reported that nine missiles were launched in the attack on Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan. There were initial reports of several casualties.

UPDATE: Press TV has more on the attack:

The U.S. Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan came under 2 missile attacks on Saturday, as the American soldiers were celebrating the New Year’s Eve.

Taliban militants have claimed responsibility for the attacks, saying they have fired 9 long-range missiles on the strategic base, killing dozens of soldiers.

Afghan officials have confirmed the attacks, but ruled out any fatalities.

The latest attacks come as the Obama administration is trying to reach some kind of a cease-fire agreement with the Taliban. Press TV

One goal of renewed talks with the militants would be to identify cease-fire zones that could be used as a steppingstone toward a full peace agreement.

The Obama administration hopes to restore momentum in the spring to U.S. talks with the Taliban terrorists that fell apart in December because of objections from Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

    muslims performing their holy acts of worship.

    OK, muslims, we’re learning more and more about you and your phony “religion” every day.

    Our task of course is teaching lessons on islam to our up to now stupid politicians,

    Isn’t PressTV an Iranian propaganda organ?

    48-hour rule.

  • jhump

    Time to test out the new MOAB.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Then again, AP and Reuters and AFP are also Iranian propaganda organs, so….

    If Obama wants to gather around the Gaggle Table with these murderers this Spring, he will need to stand on something other than his round rubber heals.

    Remember you own words, Obiwan: Never bring a knife to a gun fight.

    It didn’t take long for failed foreign policies to turn this region into another gun fight.
    Or are we now not allowed to shoot back?

    Obama’s goal is to return control of Iraq and Afghanistan to those that now control Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, Egypt, Syria and Iran. If you can’t see that you are either brain dead or a liberal.

    Then again, if a blogger in Afghanistan posted this report, with a first-hand account, I’d be more likely to believe it over PressTV, AP, Reuters, WaPo, AFP, or any other Mainstream Propaganda outfit today.

    Because that’s where we are. Walter Duranty on mega-steroids, from nearly all Mass Media outlets.

    Tom Clancy couldn’t have even thought of this 15 years back, in his writing prime.

    Do we have troops at Bagram right now?

    Three years ago I commented here that Obama would never “Bring Home The Troops!” as the fake anti-war movement screeched incessantly during the eight years of GWB’s administration. The SCOAMF wants them all dead, and will do every single thing he and his Ayers-like commie friends can do to make it so.

    The intentional execution of Seal Team Six comes to mind. Dead men tell no tales about killing men who aren’t OBL to distract attention from officially-released obviously-fake birth certificates.

    “With friends like these…”

    Too bad they don’t teach Common Sense at Harvard or any of the other puppy mill pedigree farms. If you don’t willfully teach these elite dullards, they never learn it on their own.

    Er, no offense, but is there a significant difference?


    Turn the crap country into a nuclear kitty litter box

    Since the base has been attacked before, the latest, I believe was in September, I would say it is a good bet an attack did take place. My gut tells me the Taleeban (not our enemy, per se/sarc), will increase the attacks. I bet Prez Zero is thrilled. Everything is going as planned. Let’s not leave Billiary out. She deserves alot of the credit as well.

    How does Tapper stay so calm in the face of such B.S.? He’s being way too nice to Carney. This is a problem – the main stream press seems to always be pulling their punches and risk being kicked out of the press poll if they don’t. Their job is to hold accountable and give the administration a hard time. When is someone going to stand up and say “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore”?

  • bigL

    Thanks to the crummy GOP, who are doing nothing except throwing their collective skirts up-over-their-heads…What an embarassment. At least with the Donks, we know what we get.With the GOP we get-“lets have lunch” and “let’s go to the golf course”
    Permanet Loser Party!
    (and lets nom “Mr Twenty-nine percent”. No one mentions he spent $200 million o his own mony last time for 29%.)

    The Taliban think they’re winning. So do the Afghans.

    And why shouldn’t they?

    The President of the United States has surrendered to them.

  • Kermit the Frog

    I’ll jump out and Blame Bush for this one (as I did back then…) – After the Taliban refused to turn over OBL all Bush did use as little military force as needed to push the Taliban off the throne – what Bush have have done, dramatically and with faux reluctance, is recognize the Taliban as the government of Afghan people, recognize their act of war against the US in supporting OBL, and demanded nothing less than unconditional surrender and occupation of Afghanistan – easier than it sounds as the muslims are practiced in unconditional surrender.

    Unfortunately the Compassionate Conservative failed to realize that the afghan people had already chosen their government, the Taliban. Failure to recognize our enemy and blaming their chosen party in power is what led us to where we are today.

    BUT, that has all been said before, we did not wage war against Nazis, it was Germany, not against shinto warlords, but against Japan. blah, blah, blah.

    Not that I back Obama, he’s worse than any other President, eveh, but Bush made the situation near impossible to get an absolute victory.

  • saveus

    maybe kermit it’s the afgans who made things impossible, not GWB

  • bigL

    We still haven’t found out about who ordered the Seal Team in that rickety old supply crate of a copter.I’d like to see a trial on that and see how far up the line it goes. I bet far too.

    Also does anyone in the Fed read history of the ME? The strong Horse wins, everytime. The muslims only appreciate and respect strength and violence. All this appeasing and cowering is bull. Not a one of the ‘Arab Spring’ countries dared to riot when REagan or GWB or even GHWB were in power.
