When did the administration, quietly, on the hush hush, do this?

Country Reports on Terrorism 2009 Chapter 6. Terrorist Organizations (http://www.state.gov/s/ct/rls/crt/2009/140900.htm - broken link)

State Department: Taliban is not a terrorist organization | The Daily Caller - Breaking News, Opinion, Research, and Entertainment

Quote:
A new State Department report designating terrorist organizations notably excludes one group: the Taliban. The U.S. has been fighting a war in Afghanistan for almost a decade aimed at “defeating the Taliban,” Taliban members repeatedly have threatened and killed American citizens and lawmakers have increased pressure on State to add the Taliban to the list.
This must be a forerunner to obama suing for peace (surrendering) with the Taliban, so he can get the heck out.

The Taliban isn't a terrorist organization, anymore than Iran, Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, or countless other national leaders that allow, reward, and protect terrorists.

President Bush gives a good speech, but we've had lots of countries that are against us, and we didn't invade or destroy them.

But we did negotiate with the Libyan government, the sponsor of the mass murder of Americans and allow them to buy their way out. Nice work George

A great achievement of Bush's. Getting Libya to give up their nuclear ambitions and all materials.

You sure about that?

Is this the same Taliban that has been killing our soldiers, happily assisted AQ after 9/11, and before?

Quote:
Earlier this summer, a group of congressional Democrats sent a letter to Secretary of State Hilary Clinton urging her to begin the process of categorizing the Taliban as a terrorist group.

In June, Sens. Charles Schumer and Kristen Gillibrand of New York and Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez of New Jersey proposed legislation that would immediately add the Taliban to the terrorist list.
I wonder why?

Have you forgotten the car bomb in Times Square?

Three simple criteria for an organization to qualify: Must be foreign, must engage in terrorist activity and its activity must threaten the security of the U.S. or its citizens.

Hmmm, the Taliban arent terrorists? The same Taliban that killed aide workers last week that were there to HELP AFGHAN people?!

The same Taliban that murder children?

Report: More women, children killed by Taliban – Afghanistan Crossroads - CNN.com Blogs

The same Taliban that hung a 7 year old?!

Taliban hang 7-year-old boy accused of being a spy, suicide bomber kills 40 at Afghanistan wedding

Not terrorists? Not evil? Dont deserve death?

I'm telling you, our fearless leader is priming it in order to surrender to the Taliban while trying to save face, so he can get the heck out of there.

Remember, he's real good at waving carrots, this must be one of them, in the hopes they will unclench their fists.

Killing soldiers isn't terrorism, or everyone who stormed the beach at Normandy, or those sharp shooters popping off English soldiers from the woods during the Revolutionary war are terrorists.
