The Taliban must be beside themselves in awe of their amazing luck in getting Barack Hussein Obama as President of the United States. His de facto abandonment of Afghanistan means that a return to power by the Taliban is pretty much inevitable. And then on Friday, the Taliban was delighted to have five members of their top leadership released by President Obama in exchange for an American POW widely believed to be a deserter.
In rare public statement, Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammad Omar hailed the five-for-one trade and thanked Qatar for mediating the deal.
“I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the entire Afghan Muslim nation, all the mujahideen and to the families and relatives of the prisoners for this big victory,” the world’s No. 1 terrorist said.
The president who won’t give an inch to Republicans seems very comfortable giving away entire countries to Mohammedan terrorists, and releasing Islamist War Criminals from Guantanamo.
Bergdahl’s pappy gave a pretty interesting speech at news that his son had been exchanged for five of the Taliban’s most brutal terrorists.
At the end of brief event, the soldier’s father, Bob Bergdahl, recited the most frequent phrase in the Koran — “Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim” —which means “In the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Compassionate.”
After Bergdahl finished his statement and his praise for Allah, Obama hugged him.
The Taliban echoed Bergdahl, saying the trade happened “due to the benevolence of Allah Almighty and the sacrifices of the heroic and courageous Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate.”
Imagine if FDR had traded Josef Mengele, Adolph Eichmann, Heinrich Himmler, Josef Goebbels, and Ernst Kaltenbrunner to the Nazis in exchange for one American deserter; and during the announcement of the release, the deserter’s father had yelled “Heil, Hitler!” That’s pretty much what happened here.
[Comparisons to the German National Socialist Workers Party are usually way over-the-top, but considering the goals and methods of the Taliban Islamists, they may actually fit in this case. Agree or Disagree?]
