Afghanistan Is President Trump’s War Now: Fighting Without Purpose Or End

The president presented escalation as a means to redeem the lives of those who have already died. Economists call this the fallacy of sunk costs. Those who have died cannot be resurrected. The best way to honor the dead is to send no more to die needlessly.

Hire Bush’s People, Get Bush’s Wars

The notion that by sending a few thousand more American troops to Afghanistan we can broker a peace and some sort of coalition with the Taliban is a folly born of desperation to save political face, not win the war Islam has declared on the West.

Time for U.S. To Leave Afghanistan

It would be wonderful if the U.S. could create a liberal future for Afghans who desire to escape the past. But that task is beyond Washington’s capabilities and cannot justify expending more American lives and monies.

End America’s Busted Nation-Building in Afghanistan

Afghanistan is now even more dangerous than it was a year ago. The Taliban now controls more territory than at any time since 2001. Despite pouring $113.1 billion into Afghanistan, Washington has surprisingly few sustainable, long-term benefits to show for it.

On Wednesday, Afghan officials announced that they believed Omar had died in a Pakistan hospital sometime in 2013.

VE Day Anniversary: What if the Greatest Generation Had Simply Declared Victory and Gone Home?

In the lead-up to World War II and throughout the war President Franklin Delano Roosevelt prepared Americans for a war to preserve our way of life, not to simply reclaim the territory Hitler and his dark legions had conquered. Contrast that clarity with our situation today. Americans have never been told by their President that this is a religious and cultural war and, most importantly, Americans have never heard from their President that we are in a war for the preservation of western civilization with a foe every bit has ruthless and genocidal as Hitler’s Nazis.

FRANK GAFFNEY: Congress Should Declare War On Sharia, Not Islamic State

Those who adhere to and seek to impose, whether through violence or by stealth, brutally repressive, totalitarian, misogynistic, homophobic, intolerant and anti-constitutional shariah on others – have made no secret of their determination to conquer and destroy us and the rest of the civilized world.

Oversight Report: Obama Violated Law by Freeing Taliban Members

Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon

A GAO report finds that the Obama administration violated federal law when it released five Taliban leaders from prison without notifying Congress, as is legally mandated, according to an investigation by the Government Accountability Office.

There Are No “Good Guy” Radical Islamists in Iraq

Obama’s policy makers like President George W. Bush’s before them have failed to grasp the real lesson we should have learned from the rise of the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan. The enemy is not a nation state or a government, but the idea of Islamic supremacy deeply ingrained in Muslim culture.

What if the Greatest Generation Had Declared Victory and Gone Home?

It is long past time for our leaders to tell Americans the truth about the war we are in -- the war the radical Islamist jihadis declared on us -- and to mobilize the full weight of our national power and culture for the battles to come.

Top 8 White House Lies On Bergdahl

Joseph Miller, Daily Caller

The admin. has pushed the narrative that Bowe Bergdahl was ill; his life was threatened; Congress was informed; this wasn't a negotiation with terrorists; he served with honor; the 5 released aren't a threat & will be monitored by the US; and this was the “last, best chance” to bring Bergdahl home.

The Bergdahl Trade’s Greatest Damage

As the media readily promotes the line that Bowe Bergdahl left his post because America is the oppressor in Afghanistan, the misogynistic Hell that the Taliban made is conveniently forgotten – replaced by Bergdahl’s strange identification with the enemy.

Palin: Obama Timed Bergdahl Release to Distract From VA Scandal

Tony Lee, Breitbart

Sarah Palin believes Obama timed the release of Bowe Bergdahl to distract from his administration's Veterans Administration wait-list scandal in which at least 40 veterans reportedly died after they were put on secret waiting lists. 

Smoking Gun? Obama Knew Bergdahl was a Deserter in '10

Greg Campbell, Tea Party News Network

A Pentagon report clearly indicates that as early as 2010, the DOD knew that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had deserted his unit. This means that the Obama Administration had long known that Bergdahl was a deserter and still traded 5 dangerous terrorists for the release of a man who deserted his unit.
