Taliban Attack Air Base, Kill 4 US Soldiers, After Obama Praises Them for Agreeing to Negotiations

"Is it peace in our time yet?"

“Is it peace in our time yet?”

Obama doesn’t seem to realize that the Taliban negotiate by killing people.

Obama called the Taliban’s announcement “an important first step toward reconciliation,” but cautioned that it was only “a very early step.”

“We anticipate there will be a lot of bumps in the road,” Mr. Obama said.

That was yesterday. Today one of those “bumps”, which is how Obama tends to describe murdered Americans, appeared.

Sky News reports that the Taliban acknowledged it was behind a rocket attack last night on Bagram Air Base, launched just hours after the US announced it would be holding peace talks with the Islamist group on Thursday. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said: “Last night two big rockets were launched at Bagram which hit the target. Four soldiers are dead and six others are wounded. The rockets caused a major fire.

Meanwhile the Afghans are disgusted by Obama’s Taliban appeasement and are breaking off negotiations with him.

Separately, the US and Afghanistan had been discussing an extended presence for American troops in the country past 2014, when NATO forces are set to withdraw from all combat operations in the country. But in a statement released by Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s office, the government said today that it was suspending those talks “in view of the contradiction between acts and the statements made by the United States of America in regard to the peace process.”

Although the initial statement did not elaborate on the contradiction, a senior Afghan official told Reuters that the issue was over the “official identity” being given to the Taliban, who opened an office in Doha, Qatar, on Tuesday.

“The Doha office gave the Taliban an official identity, something we didn’t want,” the Afghan official said.

“The U.S. officials told us the office will be used to move peace talks forward, but not to give them an identity.

“The Taliban’s flag and the banner of the Islamic Emirate was something we did not expect at the office,” the official said, referring o the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the name the Taliban used during their rule.

The Taliban made it clear in their statement that they intend to reestablish the Emirate. By negotiating with them, Obama has essentially agreed to those terms.

Now the Afghans want American soldiers gone because they suspect Obama Inc. will try to force its version of a Taliban government on the country through a “democratic election”.

It’s another diplomatic triumph for the Post-American tag team of Obama and Kerry.

    Sounds like another case of “workplace violence”……

    See the Islamic Supremacist flag Obama has behind him. It is wrong for that flag to be standing next to the American flag. It is treason for Obama to be building the Islamic Supremacist caliphate while destroying America’s foundation and economy.

        Why has Obama not been impeached?

  • Berceuse

    Another four dead Americans on this president’s watch. At least these are considered a “bump in the road.” That’s a step up from “a sideshow.”

      Obozo called the death of Ambassador Stevens and the deaths of the three other Americans in Benghazi, “bumps in the road” (Obozo said this on the program “Sixty Minutes”).

    There is no clearer proof that Obama’s allegiance is with those who kill US troops.

    • OfficialPro
