No one can say Obama doesn't take bold action or America wouldn't even be considering talking to the "Taliban". The thought of engaging these thugs is enough to make the bravest cringe in reaction. This past weekend Obama told "The New York Times" America might outreach to moderate elements of the Taliban. What really is an element? Where is there a moderate group of Taliban? Obama bases this thought process on the fact that we were able to communicate with Sunni enemies in western Iraq with great success-but let's thank the U.S. Marines for this, and their outreach was first backed up by military might.
