The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Biden: Those people we’ve been fighting and killing the past decade? Not our enemy

Back when I lived in New York and was working in Irvington, I used to get Mark Levin on the radio on the drive home. He routinely called then-Senator Joe Biden “the dumbest man in the U.S. Senate,” and then usually followed that pronouncement with the latest idiotic statement from the Delaware Dunce, a man who has never held a real job in his entire life.

Stumblin’ Joe is at it again, but more shockingly, the Drone King’s talking head is actually backing this latest idiocy.

The White House on Monday defended Vice President Joe Biden for saying that the Taliban isn’t an enemy of the United States despite the years spent fighting the militant Islamic group that gave a home to Al Qaeda and its leader Usama bin Laden while he plotted the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

“It’s only regrettable when taken out of context,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said of ┬áthe vice president’s remarks in an interview published Monday.

“It is a simple fact that we went into Afghanistan because of the attack on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001. We are there now to ultimately defeat Al Qaeda, to stabilize Afghanistan and stabilize it in part so that Al Qaeda or other terrorists who have as their aim attacks on the United States cannot establish a foothold again in that country,” Carney continued.

The Taliban have been a primary target of U.S. forces in Afghanistan since our SF operators went in on horseback with the North Alliance to call in airstrikes on Taliban positions in 2001, and we’ve been fighting them ever since. To assert otherwise is idiotic.
Carney is either borderline delusion, or is signaling Obama’s hope to declare this war “over” as well and, withdraw our military forces.
