An ‘armed insurgent’ who used ‘terror tactics’ slaughtered three American contractors in Afghanistan. We can’t call him a terrorist because the White House said the Afghanistan Taliban are not terrorists. We are not calling it a terror attack either.
Watch Eric Schultz call them an armed insurgency:
Three Americans have been murdered by a Taliban operative who infiltrated Afghan security forces while wearing an Afghan uniform.
The attack came Thursday evening at a military base at Kabul’s international airport, and also left one Afghan dead.
The Taliban took credit.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, who said the attacker’s name is Hessanullha,”penetrated into the security forces and was waiting for such a target for a long time,” Mujahid said.
“Yesterday in the evening he managed to get to a crowd of invading and infidel American military forces where he turned his gun towards them and opened fire,” he added. “During the gun battle, Ehsanullah was also killed by the enemy.”
Most would think that is a definition of terror but it’s not according to our administration.
Yesterday Josh Ernest doubled down on Schultz’ comments saying the Taliban “carry out tactics that are akin to terrorism, they do pursue terror attacks in an effort to try to advance their agenda.”
That’s all they do is use terror tactics but this is an administration that lies every day about most everything.
The State Department won’t even label it an act of terror, that’s how crazy this is:
The administration claims they don’t negotiate with terrorists but they do. They negotiated with the Taliban to release five “armed insurgents” for one deserter.
Earlier yesterday, the Taliban also set off a roadside bomb that killed four. Earlier in the week, they killed 17 in a series of attacks.
The Pakistani Taliban slaughtered 138 school children last month but the White House said they are a different Taliban. These Afghan Taliban are the good guys apparently.
