Krauthammer: ‘Embarrassing,’ ‘Preposterous,’ For White House To Claim Taliban Aren’t Terrorists


krauthammerSyndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said on Fox News’ “Special Report” that it was “embarrassing” and beyond parody that the Obama administration refuses to call the Taliban a terrorist organization.

KRAUTHAMMHER: It slits throats. It attacks buses. It drives car bombs into markets and it isn’t a terrorist organization. Look, you can’t parody this administration. The idea that the United States would not do this is preposterous. Of course we do. And also, the idea that the war is winding down, tell that to anybody who lives in Afghanistan. This is a fantasy. Obama pretending that the war on terror, the war in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq are all winding down, and the wars are all back. I mean, this is sort of embarrassing.

  1. Why would President Obama refuse to acknowledge
    that the Taliban are terrorists, or that there is such a thing as Radical Muslem. These postions seem blind to reality However suppose Mr. Obama has his eye on some other position after he leaves office. Lets say he wants to be the Secretary of the UN. Then it would make perfect sense for him to deny the obvious so that he would be able to garner the votes of the Arab countries.
