Dear President Obama: Only a moron would "negotiate" with the Taliban. So what does that make you?

Mr. President, you have guided this country as if you've completely missed the "clue" train.

You've lied about pork and earmarks in our budget... appointed criminals to cabinet positions... lied about lobbyists in the White House... sent an idiot overseas to deal with Russia... done your best to sell out Poland on missile defense... and buried us in trillions of dollars of debt that will keep us buried for generations... lied to us about troop withdrawals from Iraq... and you've managed to screw THAT all up in a matter of weeks!

That puts you WAY ahead of Carter. It took him YEARS to screw this country up, and you've managed to do it in a matter of DAYS!


You truly are a dangerous child when it comes to foreign policy. Hell, Mr. President... why don't you appoint your terrorist ally, Bill Ayers, as special envoy to the Taliban Terrorists that you SHOULD be doing everything you can to eradicate?

After all, it takes a terrorist to know a terrorist, and Ayers and the Taliban have a LOT in common. PLUS, he's one of your best buds! In fact, you could have him take that traitorous scumbag Wright with him to interpret!

WASHINGTON (AFP) — US President Barack Obama said, in an interview published Sunday, that the United States is not winning the war in Afghanistan and hinted at possible talks with moderate elements of the Taliban.

Highlighting the success of the US strategy of bringing some Sunni Iraqi insurgents to the negotiating table and away from Al-Qaeda, Obama told The New York Times that "there may be some comparable opportunities in Afghanistan and the Pakistani region."

The strategy in Iraq had been developed by General David Petraeus, then commander of US forces in the country.

"If you talk to General Petraeus, I think he would argue that part of the success in Iraq involved reaching out to people that we would consider to be Islamic fundamentalists, but who were willing to work with us because they had been completely alienated by the tactics of Al-Qaeda in Iraq," Obama said in the interview published in the online edition of the Times.

But Obama warned that Afghanistan was not Iraq, and that reconciliation efforts could face difficulties.

"The situation in Afghanistan is, if anything, more complex. You have a less governed region, a history of fierce independence among tribes. Those tribes are multiple and sometimes operate at cross purposes, so figuring all that out is going to be a much more of a challenge," he said.

But Afghan President Hamid Karzai said his government had long supported dialogue with those members of the Taliban, who are not connected with the "terrorists" waging an increasingly bloody insurgency in Afghanistan.
