7.5 years after W kicked the Taliban's butt!

Pakistani Taliban vows White House assault

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan - The commander of the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility Tuesday for a deadly assault on a Pakistani police academy and said the group was planning a terrorist attack on the White House that would "amaze" the world.

Recall - W sent troops to Afghanistan in Oct 2001 to drive the Taliban from power, destroy al Qaeda, and get bin Laden & Mullah Omar.

So why - seven-and-a-half years after W's awesome "Dead or Alive" military initiative - why are the Taliban still threatening terrorist attacks against the White House? If W/Rummy/Cheney had succeeded, wouldn't these guys be... dead?
... and for at least 6 of these 7.5 years we were in partnership with Pakistani President Musharraf - W's best bud in Pakistan!

Me? I'm hoping Obama is taking this threat more seriously than W took the warning, "al Qaeda determined to strike U.S." back in summer 2001!

Never forget: the current foreign-policy mess in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan is W's doing!!!

  1. If the Talibs DO succeed in mounting a 'remarkable' attack and it includes the WhiteHouse, it will inevitably result in declaration of martial law...

    Which, once declared, will never be rescinded...
