Obama Admin: Taliban Isn’t the Enemy, so Let’s Fund Al-Qaeda!


The bad news is the War on Terror is still a part of daily life. The worse news is our elected leaders are so confused about who the enemy is that we’re funding both sides.

Leon Panetta became the first U.S. Defense secretary to visit Libya on Saturday. Surveying the government Barack Obama’s illegal war put in place, Panetta said the ruling National Transitional Council needs more time to control its (al-Qaeda) militias; nonetheless, he remained “confident that ultimately they’re going to be able to succeed in putting a democracy together.” The Associated Press reports, “Officials acknowledge that process [of reining in Islamic militants] could take months, and that they can’t force the militias to go along.” Panetta added helpfully, “The last thing you want to do is to try to impose something on a country that has just gone through what the Libyans have gone through.”

In the meantime, Obama has unfrozen $37 billion for the NTC and its al-Qaeda allies, dropping most sanctions against the country. White House spokesman Jay Carney said “these assets can be an important resource for the Libyan people.” These “Libyan people” include the head of the Tripoli Military Council, Abdel Hakim Belhaj, who prepared for his role as leader of the nation’s largest militia by fighting alongside Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan.

Not to worry, though; according to Joe Biden, the Taliban is no longer the enemy. Last week, the vice president told Newsweek:

Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That’s critical. There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy, because it threatens U.S. interests. If, in fact, the Taliban is able to collapse the existing government, which is cooperating with us in keeping the bad guys from being able to do damage to us, then that becomes a problem for us.

Of course, President George W. Bush announced in his September 11th address to the nation, “We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.” Since the Taliban refused to turn over Osama bin Laden, the United States entered into the most protracted war in its history.

But why would Biden care about that?

Former UN Ambassador John Bolton said Biden’s comment shined a light on Obama administration policy. “I think he is articulating what the White House strategy is,” Bolton told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “They are trying to redefine the terrorist threat to be a limited group of al-Qaeda people along the Afghan-Pakistan border.”

Obama’s foreign policy builds on the Democratic Party’s long history of funding America’s extremist enemies. The Taliban could never have come to power if not for a ceasefire brokered by Clinton administration UN Ambassador Bill Richardson, which the Islamic fundamentalists promptly exploited to subject the nation to Islamic domination. (Obama nominated Richardson as his Commerce secretary before a scandal derailed it.) Bill Clinton supported the Kosovo Liberation Army during bombing raids that pounded Orthodox Christian Serbia on Easter, although the KLA is a narcoterrorist affiliate of al-Qaeda and received funding from Iran.

Joe Biden himself had the keen idea after 9/11, telling his staff, “Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran.”

Why should he break with generations of Democrats (and some Republicans) before him who gave U.S. aid and military technology to the Soviet Union, Red China, and other nations in the Communist bloc during the Cold War?

Obama’s economic policies are not simply dangerous because of the massive, Greek-style debt they foist upon American children. They are also dangerous because of the foreign extremists and terrorists they underwrite and the American values they undermine.

    I'm surprised that they didn't claim that the head of the Tripoli Military Council, Abdel Hakim Belhaj, like Newt Gingrich, has "reformed" and that we should now support hi.

    What a great example of a puppet White House press agent bending the meek news media and spewing out the way the news of the day should be worded. It is sad to see just how intimidated our news men and women are in these White House briefings. ALL OF THE taliban IS OUR ENEMY and just because we have such an inept vice president and because the next Presidential election is near, this administration is reaching far beyond their authority to re-write their true feelings and agenda which slips out of the mouth of babes. I don't know how many signatures have been collected to date from The Brown Report, but it is time to impeach this rogue president NOW!

    • It is far past time to impeach this Taliban in disquise. He has almost bankrupted our Nation and supported our Enemys at every turn. How much can our country endure?

    This clown, who is supposed to be the "President", is really starting to piss me off! You know the saddest of all? This clown knows he won't get impeached because he can't get impeached because he owns the Justice Department and that idiot Attorney General. We are "stuck like chuck" with Obama. The only prayer we have of getting this clown out of office is elect someone else, anyone else, even Newt Gingrich. I'd even settle for Sarah Palin ( no offense Sarah but at best you would be a good V.P.) Here's what worries me the most; Obama sees he is gonna get kicked out of office or loose the elections and declares martial law thus suspending the elections. Then we will have lost The Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and the United States of America. God Bless America!

    Finding out what these people in charge will do and what has been done what these people will say and what has been said is just mind boggling. obama is not all the problem the problem is in all these people that these zombies have been electing. These idiots just can't see the forest for looking at the trees.What is going on now is why the people came to america to get away from and have abetter life. When the nwo takes over only the elite will have a good life and the people that are left alive will have to grovel in the dirt to keep these elites up.How can you get this across to the people why can these people not under stand that. why can't look at north korea that has systematicaly suppressed their people,starved millions to death to keep their military up. there has been lots of relief sent to the country and it was used for the military. That is communisum at work and they deniegh their own people.

    This fool, and I mean “Fool” as in the “court jester/fool” as in the days of old, when courts had idiots like this to “amuse the court”, Biden, is as stupid as they come. And I do mean Stupid, for he darn well knows better, Taliban is indeed the ENEMY! But then again, how would he know as he serves the Biggest Enemy that America ever had, in the form of Barrak Hussain Obama……Obama, the Murderer of America and everything she has ever been! America, and her people are in danger of losing it all, by way of the next election, by just such examples of those in “power” as Joey Dimwit Biden! We are about to lose it all, unless the Patriots of America come forth and make dead sure that this does not happen, that we do not have another 4 years a muslime enemy in office, and another 4 years of the worst, the WORST president of all times put back into that office, with his family of little muslimes in tow.
    IF that happens, then we are in worse trouble than we could possibly even begin to imagine, for the fact is that this peice of garbage is a muslime, make no mistake about that and, as one, he means to utterly destroy us all along with our country as we have always known her to be, free and beautiful, and AMERICAN!!!!!! All of those words should mean more to us than anything else, even down to being called a racist and bigots. If despising a satanic religion, which means to destroy me and my country, means that I am a RACIST BIGOT, then hello people!!!! I AM YOUR LOCAL RACIST BIGOT FROM TEXAS!!!!!

  6. Other than the American people, can anyone tell me WHO this lousy, good for nothing, self serving governments ENEMY IS???
