Joe Tries to Deflect

The President himself issued an absurd statement referring to the Taliban as "Businesslike and professional" at the very moment the Taliban were searching house to house, beating and killing those who were our allies.

Looking over the Taliban leadership we are reminded that President Obama handed them over in exchange for another misguided American idiot, Bowe Bergdahl, a military deserter.

Four of the five Taliban members released from Guantanamo Bay by the Obama administration in 2014 in exchange for admitted US Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl are part of the Islamic fundamentalist group's new hardline government in Afghanistan, according to local media reports.

The four members of the so-called "Taliban Five" who have joined the new government are Acting Director of Intelligence Abdul Haq Wasiq, Acting Minister of Borders and Tribal Affairs Norullah Noori, Deputy Defense Minister Mohammad Fazl, and Acting Minister of Information and Culture Khairullah Khairkhah.

Afghan outlet TOLOnews published a list Tuesday of members of the new "Caretaker" government, which features several familiar faces who helped run the war-torn country between 1996 and 2001 - when the Taliban were forced from power by US-led NATO forces following the 9/11 attacks.

The Taliban are back in power but it's us who have to be humiliated to get on a plane, have to wonder if what we're typing in our own homes will be used by our government to harm us, are publicly shamed if we even suggest Islam might have even a tiny bit to do with jihad, are practically forced to repeat the prog doggerel about Islam being a religion of peace, are routinely called the Taliban and domestic terrorists by people who at the same time perversely defend Islam and condemn us even though Islam is in opposition to almost everything they claim to believe in.

It's another displacement tactic - like "Look, a squirrel!" Biden is, in effect, saying the Taliban aren't the problem, those unvaccinated Americans are.
