WH: ISIL A TERRORIST GROUP, BUT TALIBAN IS AN ‘ARMED INSURGENCY’


Just in case there is any confusion as to who is who and what is what, we have this clip from the latest presser with the new mouthpiece by the name of Schultz. Anyone want to bet he will be put in mothballs? No wait, this is the Obama policy. Charles Krauthammer gives us his rebuttal.

“The Taliban is an armed insurgency,” began Schultz. “ISIL is a terrorist group. We don’t make concessions to terrorist groups.”

“You don’t think the Taliban is a terrorist group?” ABC’s Jonathan Karl asked.

“I don’t think that the Taliban… the Taliban is an armed insurgency,” Schultz continued haltingly, pointing out that the United States negotiated Berghdal’s release during the “winding down” of the war in Afghanistan.

Schultz reiterated that the prisoner swap with the Taliban was an “end of conflict” action in support of the president’s commitment to “leave no man/woman behind.”

H/T and more: Breitbart

Then we have Charles Krauthammer’s reaction to this absurdity- short version

Published on Jan 28, 2015

Charles Krauthammer on Fox News’ ‘Special Report’: It slits throats. It attacks buses. It drives car bombs into markets and it isn’t a terrorist organization. Look, you can’t parody this administration. The idea that the United States would not do this is preposterous. Of course we do. And also, the idea that the war is winding down, tell that to anybody who lives in Afghanistan.

This is a fantasy. Obama pretending that the war on terror, the war in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq are all winding down, and the wars are all back. I mean, this is sort of embarrassing.

    Schultz’s response to the nature of the Talcumbrand is simply the wrong choice of words. I do not think he meant “Insurgency.” I think he mean’t “Insanity.” For my part I would choose the words, “Insane Infuriating Insufficiency” requiring application of a universal panacea at the hands of all Humanity … a magic bullet of some kind .. or a billion magic bullets of any kind … so long as they can be applied in a humane manner. Don’t want to be advocating for violence here … might offend the Region of Pieces and enter onto politically incorrect ground … a cardinal sin these days …LOL

    Of course. If we are financing them, they can’t be a terrorist, silly bunkerperson! How many spokesfokes does this White House have anyway? It takes an entire team to keep up with which spin must be spun with which audience, and a bakers dozen “pooper scoopers” to run interference and damage control to keep the narrative adherent to the “party line” with Crazy Uncle Joe and His Royal Hindass popping off left and right and actually saying out loud what their real views and goals are. The gig is never up, for they have been conditioned to wholly believe that they can actually make truth by repeating certain words, and banning others.
