But she doesn't, and proved today she's willing to overlook extremism if it prevents making her party and her President look bad (Washington Examiner).
A Democratic House member said Tuesday she sees a role for the Taliban in Afghanistan's future government after U.S. forces withdraw.
The Taliban are "part of the fabric of Afghanistan. They were part of the leadership of that country before we engaged there," Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., told host Kristen Welker on MSNBC, noting that the Obama administration is trying to push the government of President Hamid Karzai to negotiate with the Islamist extremist group "because there will be some cooperation, some level of coordination between the two if that country is going to survive and move forward. So, to say that they are terrorists, at this point, is not necessarily accurate."
Speier was responding to comments by House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who said the deal to free five Taliban leaders in exchange for captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl would come back to haunt the United States.
“We're going to pay for this,” he told reporters Tuesday. “There is not any doubt in my mind there are going to be costs — lost lives associated with what came out of this.”Jackie Speier will spend days on the House floor, yelling and screaming about an imaginary "war on women" being allegedly waged by Republicans, but she thinks this kind of extremist attitude below, shown by the Taliban pre-9/11, is "part of the fabric of Afghanistan."
Are you kidding me, Jackie? You claim to care so much about women's issues and you turn a blind eye to the way the Taliban treat women lower than dogs, all because your President cannot be made to look bad?
"My Party...Right or Wrong" The Democrat Mantra that Speier and the rest of them blindly chant. Which is why I've said and written for at least the last ten years that the Democrat Party is a Part of Treason that doesn't give a damn about the security of the American people, and definitely don't care about the lives lost in defeating this extremist group who harbored those that planned the attack on America on 9/11.
