Fantastic. Maybe avoiding General McChrystal’s phone calls was not the president’s best idea?
On the day of President Obama’s glorious Nobel Appease Prize victory, a Taliban henchman gloats in Afghanistan in the aftermath of the Kamdesh siege:
Speaking by telephone from an undisclosed location, Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said the U.S. bombarded the outpost with airstrikes after leaving, as well as the local police headquarters.
“This means they are not coming back,” Mujahid said. “This is another victory for Taliban. We have control of another district in eastern Afghanistan. Right now Kamdesh is under our control, and the white flag of the Taliban is raised above Kamdesh,” Mujahid said.
Provincial police chief, Gen. Mohammad Qasim Jangulbagh, said the pullout “has had a direct affect on the morale of Afghan forces.” (H/T – Michelle Malkin)
This may be the worst thing that has happened in Afghanistan in recent memory. The victory has emboldened the Taliban, and like the Somalis after the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu, these rat bastards are going to be a pain in the ass to wipe out.
President Obama needs to stop polishing that worthless Nobel peace Prize and give the general what he needs to finish this war, post haste!
