Verse 76 of the Obama Impeachment song. Taliban as important partner.

According to Pakistani Today:

US is no longer conducting counter-terrorism operations against the Taliban in Afghanistan because it views the group as an important partner in its efforts for restoring peace in the war-ravaged country, US Department of Defence said.

“What we’re not doing (is) counter-terrorism operations against the Taliban,” Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis told a Wednesday evening news briefing in Washington.

“We actually view the Taliban as being an important partner in a peaceful Afghan-led reconciliation process. We are not actively targeting the Taliban,” he added.

Meanwhile,  six NATO service members were killed Monday in a motorcycle bomb attack in Bagram, Afghanistan, all American, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said.

A suicide bomber on a motorbike carried out the attack on a joint patrol of Afghan and coalition forces at about 1:30 p.m. in the Bajawri area of Bagram district, said Waheed Sediqi, a spokesman for the governor of Parwan province.

This brings us to verse 76 of the Obama Impeachment song (as if sung by President Barack Hussein Obama to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)

Talibans are getting hot:

My partners, they have upped the pot.

Six men killed, I say: So what?

A traitor I am, don’t give a squat!

Here is the complete impeachment song: https://lenbilen.com/2015/02/25/the-complete-obama-impeachment-song/

Karzai and Obama in Chicago. “Our taxpayers’ money” at work. A Limerick.

Yes, Karzai gave thanks for “our taxpayers’ money”

to grease the corruption, it’s sweeter than honey.

The eleven year war

makes them ask for much more.

Surrender to Taliban? This is not funny.

Looking to a day when “the Afghan war as we understand it is over,” President Barack Obama met Sunday with President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan to discuss NATO’s withdrawal from that strife-torn country by the end of 2014.

“I’m bringing to you and to the people of the United States the gratitude of the Afghan people for the support that your taxpayers’ money has provided Afghanistan over the past decade and for the difference that it has made to the well-being of the Afghan people,” the Afghan President Karzai told Obama. He did not give thanks for the sacrifices the troops have made.

The price tag for Afghan forces after 2014 is estimated to be $4.1 billion per year. Afghanistan is expected to pay $500 million of that. Karzai has said his country will need at least $10 billion per year in overall aid through 2025.

Obama looked ahead to a future “in which we have ended our combat role, the Afghan war as we understand it is over, but our commitment to friendship and partnership with Afghanistan continues” and evoked “a shared vision that we have in which Afghanistan is able to transition from decades of war to a transformational decade of peace and stability and development.”

Obama underlined “the enormous sacrifices that have been made by the American people, most profoundly by American troops, as well as the troops of our other coalition partners” and said Americans “recognize the hardship that the Afghan people have been through.”

“The loss of life continues in Afghanistan. There will be hard days ahead. But we’re confident that we’re on the right track,” he said.

Afghan Red Cross worker,sentenced to die for converting to Christianity freed..

A therapist worked hard in Afghanistan.

He did lose a leg but became a new man.

Among Muslim strife

Christ gave him new life.

He is to be hanged, that’s the Muslim God’s plan.

Afghans face death penalty for converting to Christianity

Right:Said-Musa-With-Amputee-Child. Right 2,3,4 Pictures of Afghan hangings.

Said Musa, a physiotherapist for the Afghan Red Cross, will be hanged in three days if he does not convert back to Islam.

He was arrested in May of 2010 after a television show broadcast a video showing some western men baptizing people in secret.

He was on his way to seek asylum at the German embassy when he was seized and imprisoned. He told a news agency he has been raped and tortured by both prisoners and his guards. He tells of being visited by a judge who told him he would be hung in three days if he did not convert back to Islam.

BC Forums reports: An Afghan physiotherapist will be executed within three days for converting to Christianity. Blazingcatfur comments: Our troops are fighting for the right of the Government of Afghanistan to hang Said Musa. Don’t expect much Hue and Cry from the Red Cross they actively aid the Taliban.

Ad Orientem tells us: He told the Sunday Times: “My body is theirs to do what they want with. Only God can decide if my spirit goes to hell.” Mr. Musa has no legal representation as appointed defense lawyers have refused to defend him and other lawyers have abandoned the case after receiving death threats. He maintains he will remain a believer in Christ and will die for his religion if necessary. Mr. Musa lost his leg to a land mine and has been helping amputees for fifteen years for the Afghan Red Cross. Some bloggers are saying that the Red Cross in Afghanistan will not help him or even try to talk with government officials.

Update : Feb 25, 2011.“An Afghan Red Cross worker who was arrested last spring for converting to Christianity has been released from an Afghanistan prison.

The worker, Said Musa, 46, was released from prison last week “after aggressive international diplomacy engaged Afghanistan’s government,” International Christian Concern, an organization that worked directly with his case, said in a written statement Thursday.

Musa, who left Islam roughly eight years ago, was arrested in May after an Afghan TV report showed locals being baptized and called for the government to crack down on apostasy.

The father of six who lost a leg to a land mine and was working to help amputees reportedly was abused in prison and threatened with death if he did not renounce his faith.

According to ICC, Musa wrote in a Feb. 13 letter that U.S. and Italian Embassies offered him asylum but that Afghan officials subsequently told him that he would only be released if he wrote a statement declaring that he regretted his conversion to Christianity.

“I refused their demands,” he wrote.

Even so, on Feb. 21 an official from the U.S. Embassy in Kabul told the organization Musa was released and safely out of the country.

“We cannot be more thrilled about Said Musa’s release. It has been encouraging to see the international community, including churches, reporters and government officials in Europe and North America, work together for the common goal of freeing Said,” Aidan Clay, ICC’s regional manager for the Middle East, said in the statement. “Many sleepless nights, prayers and tears have paid off.”

The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, which advises the federal government on international violations of religious freedom, said Musa’s release is a good start in addressing a bigger problem.

“While the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) welcomes Said Musa’s release, the fact that he was in jail demonstrates the serious deficiencies in the Afghan legal system,” USCIRF chair Leonard Leo told FoxNews.com. “The U.S. government and international community need to seriously engage the Karzai government about protecting the religious freedoms of all Afghanis.”
