Obama’s regime is living in a fantasy world and desperate to have everyone join them.
At Wednesday’s White House press briefing, deputy press secretary Eric Schultz wouldn’t call the Taliban a terrorist group, instead referring to it as “an armed insurgency.”
“The Taliban is still conducting terrorist attacks. You can’t really say the war has ended as far as they are concerned,” ABC’s Jonathan Karl said at the briefing.
“Well, I’d also point out that the Taliban is an armed insurgency, ISIL is a terrorist group. So, we don’t make concessions to terrorist groups,” Schultz said.
“You don’t think the Taliban is a terrorist group?” Karl asked.
“I don’t think that the Taliban, um, uh — the Taliban is an armed insurgency. This was the winding down of the war in Afghanistan and that’s why this arrangement was dealt,” Schultz responded.
On Twitter, Adam Housley had a few things to say.
And one of my responses to this dangerous absurdity only Orwell could truly appreciate:

And Bush led the way. In 2008, the Extremist Messaging Branch of the National Counter Terrorism Center issued a memo on what words to use and to not use. For example; Don’t say, jihadist; say, violent extremist.
My question; Why do we have an Extremist Messaging Branch?
