Afghan media reports say the United States is in contact with the Taliban in Qatar to persuade the militant group to sit at the negotiating table with the Afghan government.
The Taliban have repeatedly refused to negotiate directly with the Western-backed government of President Hamid Karzai, demanding that any negotiations be held between the militants and the United States.
This is Brilliant! Who could have expected President Obama to have tricked these cutthroat heathens into negotiating peace with the world’s lone superpower!
We, the “loyal opposition” in the United States want to warn the Taliban, tho. Obama doesn’t negotiate. Except when it comes to women negotiating with terrorists.
US Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday said a peaceful resolution to the Afghan conflict would remain President Obama administration’s first option.
Is it just me, or does it seem the Tal-e-bahn refused to negotiate with Hillary? As soon as John Kerry takes over they decide to negotiate. Naw, couldn’t be. I mean it’s not like sending a gay ambassador to a Muslim country, or something.
Naw, Hillary was just tired. She has a lot of miles on her.
If there’s a Pow Wow Chow cookbook, does that mean Obama’s cookbook is called Bow Wow Chow? (H/T SL Rob)
As Afghanistan falls apart, thanks to the One’s politically-motivated decision to announce our skeedaddle date, his campaign attempts to continue to dine out on the killing of Osama bin Laden. Did someone commit the criminal leak of the foiling of the recent attempt to blow up another airplane to help the Obama campaign have another success to use in the campaign?
At this point isn't it easier to keep track of when she's NOT on vacation? Of course, who can blame her for wanting to get out of Dodge, given the mounting number of scandals involving the Obama administration? Speaking of that, is she going to be taking Valerie Jarrett with her, assuming of course that we can find Ms. Jarrett. Back in the day, we would have put her on a milk carton over the last few weeks.

I don't always agree with everything here, but I always find it informative, and often when I read their posts, I am reminded of that old, and very true adage; specifically, small minds talk about people, average minds talk about events, and great minds talk about ideas.
