Remember when Bush was in office and we lived by the statement, “We don’t negotiate with Terrorist“? That statement was held almost in a reverence until Barry Obama was elected.
He was challenged about that early on in his presidency when it came to Iran. He was prepared to make some meetings with Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with negotiated rules for the meeting. Obama was going to let the idiot Ahmadinejad tell him where the meeting would be held, who would attend and exactly what they would discuss. So instead of Obama telling the idiot Ahmadinejad how the horse eats the apple, he was going to let the idiot set the rules.
Actually the phrase ‘WE DON’T NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORIST‘ is pretty plain and simple to understand. It’s well stated. There’s no room for misunderstanding. Not a single word needs to be explained. It’s short and to the point. But it seems Barry, with all his high and mighty education, has trouble with just what the phrase says/means.
With much thanks to Bare Naked Islam, here’s the story:
Barack Obama surrenders to the Taliban
Posted: January 4, 2012
But while he’s working out the details, he’ll let thousand of troops stay in Afghanistan with the same Obama-directed suicidal rules of engagement.
The Guardian The US has agreed in principle to releasing top officials from Afghanistan terrorist group in exchange for starting process of negotiations.
The US has agreed in principle to release high-ranking Taliban officials from Guantánamo Bay in return for the Afghan insurgents’ agreement to open a political office for peace negotiations in Qatar, the Guardian has learned.
According to sources familiar with the talks in the US and in Afghanistan, the handful of Taliban figures will include Mullah Khair Khowa, a former interior minister, and Noorullah Noori, a former governor in northern Afghanistan.
More controversially, the Taliban are demanding the release of the former army commander Mullah Fazl Akhund. Washington is reported to be considering formally handing him over to the custody of another country, possibly Qatar.”To take this step, the [Obama] administration have to have sufficient confidence that the Taliban are going to reciprocate,” said Vali Nasr, who was an Obama administration adviser on the Afghan peace process until last year. “It is going to be really risky. Guantánamo is a very sensitive issue politically.”
