Hussein’s White House declines to call Afghan Taliban ‘terrorists’

WASHINGTON: The White House on Thursday declined to describe the Afghan Taliban as a terrorist group, prompting consternation from the right, which accused President Barack Obama’s administration of being out of touch.

“They do carry out tactics that are akin to terrorism, they do pursue terror attacks in an effort to advance their agenda,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest.

“What’s also true though is that it is important to draw a distinction between the Taliban and al Qaeda,” he said, pointing to a difference in designation.

Once out of office Hussein will announce his “reversion”.

    99% of Afghastlians believe almost everything the Taliban believes, from wife-raping to hand-chopping. In other words, the Afghastlians are practically all primitive, 7th century barbarians at heart. For that reason, the US government is trying to go easy on the vast majority of Afghastlistan that doesn’t believe Islam is a religion of peace…not at all.
