Obama’s Peace Partners the Taliban Kill 3 More NATO Troops in Bomb Blast

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

9 days ago the White House told us that the Taliban was not our enemy.

Today the Taliban blew up 3 more NATO troops in Afghanistan.
The Washington Post reported:

 

Three NATO service members have been killed by a roadside bomb in eastern Afghanistan, the alliance said Wednesday. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the target was a U.S. military convoy.

NATO’s statement said that the deaths occurred Tuesday, but provided no further details about the incident or the nationalities of the troops.

The Taliban said the attack took place in Paktiya province, about 100 kilometers (60 miles) south of Kabul.

The latest deaths bring December’s toll of foreign troops killed in Afghanistan to 23, for a total of 539 deaths so far this year. The yearly tally is considerably lower than for 2010, when more than 700 troops died. The number of wounded has remained high, dipping only slightly from last year’s total of more than 5,000 service members.

Someone tell the White House.
