Obama Administration Arming the Taliban Enemy in Afghanistan
By Pamela Geller / THE GELLER REPORT

More of Obama’s brilliant foreign policy handiwork. The Obama nightmare never ends. The Taliban are winning.

Obama declared that the vicious bloodthirsty Taliban were to be his partners in peace. But of course, they were having none of it. They are on the vanguard of the tsunami of Islamic supremacist movements that Obama empowered, armed and supported. Their resurrection, after Bush decimated them, is Obama’s legacy.

The U.S. State Department reported that in the last 10 years, under President Obama’s watch – after the United States invaded and ousted the Taliban from leadership – religious freedom has plunged and every single Christian church has been removed from the country.

Obama laid down our weapons (even though he campaigned on fighting in Afghanistan, “the good war”) and as a result, the Taliban control large parts of Afghanistan. Bill Roggio, the editor of The Long War Journal, reports that one-fifth of the country is controlled or contested by the Taliban, but he emphasized that this was a conservative estimate. “They probably either control or heavily influence about a half of the country,” he said.

I submit that Afghanistan is one of Obama’s top failures (or perhaps in his mind, his greatest success). And there are a great many failures competing for the top spot — Syria, Iraq, Libya, Russia, Israel, Egypt, ISIS, jihad at home …..
