Obama-Backed Taliban Bomb US Consulate in Afghanistan

The Taliban claimed responsibility for a dawn attack on the US consulate in Afghanistan today that killed at least three people. Violent incidents in Afghanistan have been on the rise as US ever since Obama took office. Year after year, the death toll of US troops breaks the previous year’s record. 

For the whole of his presidency, Obama has been strong-arming the Afghan government to partner with these savages. Obama demanded that Karzai negotiate with them.

Obama used the NATO summit to pressure Afghan leader Hamid Karzai to engage with greater urgency with the Taliban about a political settlement in Afghanistan. “Political settlement” is a euphemism for surrender to jihad. And the cows in the media remain silent on Obama’s unprecedented failure in Afghanistan.

Karzai has said that Mullah Omar (a designated Muslim terrorist with a $10 million bounty on his head) can run for president.

The Obama Administration announced that it wanted to meet with the Taliban in Doha for “peace talks.” The Taliban laughed and never showed. 

Video below:

The Taliban behead Afghan children and slaughter Afghans who dare to attend a party where dancing takes place. Mullah Omar sheltered Osama bin Laden prior to the 9/11 attacks; he had a hand in the 9/11 attacks; and he has directed the Taliban’s ongoing war against U.S.-led NATO forces. On what basis could a peace conference move forward?

Obama has been quietly releasing Taliban terrorists from Gitmo, trying to open the failed “peace talks” with the Taliban. This isn’t embarrassing. It’s suicide. It’s beyond treacherous, it’s treason.

What is the point of the past ten years of US involvement in Afghanistan? The Taliban aided, abetted and provided shelter to Osama Bin Laden. What are we doing there? Obama is pursuing the same irrational, nonsensical approach to Syria.

Attack on US consulate in Afghanistan may cast a shadow over Syria debate (+video) CSN Monitor, September 13, 2013

Taliban insurgents in Herat explode truck bomb outside former five star hotel killing three local security force members.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for a dawn attack on a US consulate in Afghanistan Friday that killed at least three locals, and that underlines continued security woes in the country 12 years after the US intervened ther.

The attack may also underline for critics the risks of striking Syria, as the US scrambles to respond to the alleged use of chemical weaponry in late August by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The event took place in Herat in the western part of Afghanistan reports Reuters, when a bomb in a truck exploded outside the gates of the US consulate and a gunbattle between security forces and gunmen ensued.

The US State Department said in a statement that a truck approached the US consulate at 5:30 a.m. local time with a group of attackers carrying rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles.

They opened fire on the consulate before the truck exploded, damaging the front gate. “It appears American and contract security personnel addressed any attackers who managed to enter the compound,” the statement read. “It appears some attackers were wearing suicide explosive devices.”

Violent incidents in Afghanistan have been on the rise as US and allied forces begin to draw down and then formally depart in 2014. As the BBC notes: “This attack – carried out in the shadow of the anniversary of 9/11 – is a demonstration of the ability of insurgents still to disrupt Afghanistan 12 years after the US toppled the Taliban.”
