Hillary: US Responsible For The Taliban

From Iran’s Press TV:

US responsible for Taliban existence

Sat, 25 Apr 2009

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has acknowledged that the United States had a share in creating terrorist groups such as the Taliban.

Clinton in a congressional hearing explained how the militancy in Pakistan was linked to the US-backed proxy war against the Soviets in Afghanistan, Dawn reported on Saturday.

"Let’s remember here… the people we are fighting today we funded them twenty years ago… and we did it because we were locked in a struggle with the Soviet Union," she said.

The US along with Saudi Arabia, UAE and Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) created the Taliban in 1980’s to counter then Soviets’ influence in the volatile region.

"And great, let them come from Saudi Arabia and other countries, importing their Wahabi brand of Islam so that we can go beat the Soviet Union," Clinton said.

"… and it was President Reagan in partnership with Congress led by Democrats who said you know what it sounds like a pretty good idea… let’s deal with the ISI and the Pakistan military and let’s go recruit these mujahideen," she added.

Moderate Sunni and Shia Muslims believe that the Wahabi order has nothing to do with Islam and was created by the global powers to fuel extremism…

Mrs. Clinton is almost as good as Mr. Obama at blaming the United States and giving our nation’s enemies propaganda points.

No wonder she almost got the Democrat nomination.

Mind you, Mrs. Clinton is the same ignoramus who is such a fan of Ms. Benazir Bhutto, who really did help create the Taliban.

    Well, Steve, she has never denied any of the many contradictions in her past. Her M O is to merely ignore the inconsistencies as if they had never happened. Note how deftly she impugned Reagan. And even though she did note the democrat-controlled congress, her intent was to exonerate them of any culpability.

    Now she has to more or less parrot the Obama’s party line. The fact that she agrees with it is only icing on the cake. And since when have this current crew ever let facts get in the way of a good cover-up?

      “Her M O is to merely ignore the inconsistencies as if they had never happened. ”

      That’s got to be rule number one in the lock step leftist rule book.

      Seems that is the one consistancy in all their behavior.

      “Don’t listen to what I said…just what I say…today. Forget the rest.
      In other word…shut up and do what you are told”

    In related news, the Hildabeast has confessed that the United States is responsible for Nazi Germany.

    “Let’s remember here… the people who gassed the Jews, we share a gene pool with them… and we did it because we were locked in a struggle for human survival,” she said.

    “… and it was Jesus in partnership with the popes and Martin Luther who said you know what it sounds like a pretty good idea… let’s continue to procreate and let’s do it even with humans who may later prove to be sinners,” she added.

    If we set up the Taliban, how come we didn’t recognize their government? This is scary to see the ignorance, incompetence or both on display by the U.S. Secretary of State.

  4. catie

    Honestly, I’m surprised she didn’t come out with that before now. I have a crazy cousin (I’m sure we all do) and this was his mantra shortly after 9/11. Unfortunately we live in a nation of fools who will swallow this hook, line and sinker.

  5. jrmcdonald

    Thank you for the current events report Ms Clinton. Now what are you going to do about it?

    • JohnMG

      Answer: Nothing. It’s Bush’s and Reagan’s fault. They should have to fix it!

      By the way, I have a caption for the picture above this thread;

      “Hey, buddy. Don’t Bogart that joint–pass it around!”

    • jrmcdonald

      Thanks John. Pehaps Hillary is right. If only there had been a President after the Cold War who had the wisdom, and – guidance at home- to reach out.

    • JohnMG

      Maybe we should ease up on the old girl. Her real problem is that she has a tough act to follow as SecState so it’s understandable she would look like a “light-weight” (figuratively, of course) by comparison.

      Our real sympathy should be directed to Condoleeza Rice, however. Imagine being sandwiched between Madeline Al(or is it half?)bright and Hillary Clinton? (sigh)

    What is her point? She is sickening. We really need to select, then elect people who will be advocates for us and our country. When I hear about her spewing her nonsense all over the world, I keep reminding myself that she lost the nomination and would now be President of the United States. There is some comfort there, but not much.

  7. canary

    What Congressional hearing is this relevant to, that she would give such written testimony for? More wasted words such as repeatedly telling the Taliban they must stop it. Where is her head at?
    We know she experiences halucinations, when it comes to dodging bullets, and her daughter jogging during 9/11. Her reality is further confused by her moonlighting; writing her new book on how she helped destroy the American village. Hatred of America shown by the Clinton pardoning Bill Ayers.

    • canary

      Is Hil agreeing with Irans recent blaming U.S. AP reported:

      “Dirty hands and evil brains that founded this blind and uncontrolled terrorism in Iraq should know that the fire will burn themselves,” Iran’s state TV quoted Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as saying on Saturday.

      Clinton said it was “disappointing for anyone to make such a claim since it is clearly traced to the al-Qaida remnants and other violent groups who wish to disrupt the progress of Iraq.”

  8. She is such a traitorous bitch. I truly hate her and all she stands for.

    Not once could she frame the reality of the Taliban in such terms: “We gave the Afghanistan resistance every tool necessary to beat back their invaders, The Soviet Union, and after it was all over, they turned on us. We should teach them a lesson.

    Could she have personalized the Afghanistan War with Charlie Wilson, as she did our great Ronald Reagan? Nope. She just meekly says “Democrat congress.”
    Frankly, Charlie Wilson should be singled out as one of the last Democrats who didn’t shy away from fighting communism.

    Keep in mind: Every one of these leftist pieces of scum are in it for themselves. They stick together only if it seems to benefit themselves. They are only as strong as their self interest takes them. We can defeat them if we can agree that they do not have convictions beyond their own self interest. Their personal power is more important to them than the power of their party.

    • proreason

      Sage advice anna.

      When the torrent from the media seems overwhelming, we should always remember….I’m going to take the generous understatement off your comments…..they are insipid, selfish, self-loathing, corrupt bastards who can’t help but shoot themselves in the foot just in the normal course of events.

      Which reminds me what I always say if some libwit spouts the usual garbage about right-wing media….I tell them I don’t have to seek out loonie left-wing propaganda. I couldn’t get escape from it if I dedicated my life to it.

    • annabetsy

      True, Proreason. They are digging a pit for us and sooner or later (hopefully sooner) they will trip and fall into it.

    Maybe Hillary should give Charlie Wilson a call. He’s still alive, after all. Perhaps he can tell her how he worked his tail off to stop the genocide in Afghanistan being committed by the Russians by providing the mujahadeen with weapons that would take out the dreaded Russian helicopters that reined down on Afghani men, women and children. Perhaps she could get Charlie to tell her how he, and President Reagan promised the Afghanis that we would not desert them, and we would help them create a democratic government. Then perhaps Charlie can tell Hillary how the Congress, THE DEMOCRATIC HELD CONGRESS, defunded all aid to the Afghanis, just as they did to the South Vietnamese.

    Perhaps Charlie can explain to Hillary how we left the Afghanis hanging out to dry and their system, not understanding western styled democracy and how to put it in place, was ripe for the Taliban to come in and implement their form of “Islamic” government.

    After all, maybe Hillary will listen to Charlie Wilson, a fellow Democrat.

    Yeah, Hillary, the U.S. is responsible for the Taliban if you take into consideration that it was a Democratic controlled Congress that defunded all the aid we had promised them. But I doubt you would ever be willing to admit that. Just like your party had never admitted that the reason Vietnam is now totally communist is because your party changed it’s mind on the aid we had promised them.

    The Democrats have not changed since their convention in 1864 when the Copperhead ruled and wanted to allow the Confederate states to just go their own way in order to end the war. They were “cut and run” then, they were “cut and run” for both Vietnam and Afghanistan and they are “cut and run” now.

  11. JohnMG

    C’mon Retire. Hillary listen? We’re talking about the smartest woman in the world, remember?

    Not a chance. Besides, Charlie Wilson couldn’t have been a REAL democrat. He doesn’t look, think, or act a thing like Kerrey or Murtha. You know. REAL democrat heroes! (extreme sarcasm)

  12. VMAN

    OF COURSE IT”S OUR FAULT. It’s also our fault that there was a flood and Noah had to build an ark and I think we are responsible for the Vikings and the Spanish inquisition and global warming and global cooling and the dinosaurs becoming extinct and the ice age. We, the USA, are to blame!!! It’s all our fault. We are such an evil, vile disgusting country just ask Obama he will tell you.. Somebody PLEASE STOP ME BEFORE MY HEAD EXPLODES!!!!!

  13. VMAN

    I’m going to go take a nap now

    • proreason

      Vman……take a RBtini and a few hours of shut-eye.

      We’re with you on just about everything you say.

  14. joeblough

    It’s so pathetic to have our back-benchers on the field.

    And so dangerous that the rest of the world knows it.

  15. ptat

    As soon as I think she may have made a better president, she does something as stupid as Obama. How about her speech in Baghdad where she pointed out that the US had voted for an “African American” to be president? Wow, how amazing! I am more sure every day that being half black was the only reason this idiot made it to the white house.

    • JohnMG

      The ultimate result of affirmative action. No qualifications. No background. No record of accomplishment. No nothing! But the white guy STILL doesn’t get the job.

      Should we be surprised? Nah!

    • Liberals Demise

      We are witnessing the “Dumbing Down” of America. What better way of doing it than to call the “A” Team off the field and send in the bench warmers and non achievers.

  16. Rusty Shackleford

    It’s like an episode of “The Simpsons” where Homer’s brain is tasked with having to respond to a question and it’s saying “Don’t say something stupid” and yet, the inevitable dumb thing comes out of his mouth.

    But for Hitlery who LOST THE NOMINATON, HENCE THE ELECTION, which I find pleasingly notable, is having to play second fiddle, unfortunately at the American People’s expense but her channeled anger is now aimed at trying to make herself important. Thus, Bill-Jeff is relieved cuz he can to down to the local all night liquor store and massage parlor without her interference, or possibly even noticing for that matter.

    They probably not only don’t sleep in the same bed as in white house days…but probably live in separate houses, in different parts of the country.

    Yet, the altruistic public still thinks because she’s a bra-burner who had “courage”, she is worth listening to. I consider everything she says to be unimportant. I do not hear her words.

    • I’m with you, Dale, er, Rusty!

      I think that Hill’s Secy of State is a chance for her to express her inner woman’s rage better than she would have had a chance if she had gotten the POTUS position. If she had been POTUS, she would have been hemmed in a little more, having to “play nice” with her cabinet, 535 members of the legislative branch, and having to worry about passing the next election.

      Here, she can let her freak flag fly a little more, be the activist she always wanted to be, and damn the detractors. All at America’s cost, of course.

  17. It was Hillary that said that the Bush tax-cuts, which hadn’t been implemented yet, caused 911.
