For the last few days a White House spokesman, Eric Schultz, has been doing everything not to call the Taliban a terrorist organization. On Wednesday, Schultz called the Taliban an “armed insurgency.”
Why would White House do that? Because a few months ago on the urgent need for any success in Afghanistan, the White House negotiated with Taliban the release Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. But, US as a matter of principle does not negotiate with terrorists. So, they decided to simply stop calling Taliban the terrorists and call them insurgents instead.
Unfortunately for the White House the Taliban, as the good terrorists would, killed 3 Americans and then claimed responsibility for doing that.
Mr. President, please don't try that hard, we already know that "emperor has no clothes".
A Russian woman from the city of Smolensk, mother of seven, warned Ukraine's embassy that troops stationed in the base near her house have disappeared, and were possibly sent on the mission. She was promptly arrested by FSB (Russian FBI) and sent to infamous Lefortovo prison (know as KGB prison, center of torture of political prisoners under Stalin).

Władze Kuby tak się cieszą z perspektywy normalizacji stosunków z USA ze stawiają nie możliwe warunki. Chcą reparacji za szkody wyrządzone embargiem, zwrotu zatoki Guantanamo i zaprzestania pomocy dla dysydentów. Dla Amerykanów to warunki nie do przyjęcia, z wyjątkiem prezydenta Obamy.
Obama bardzo potrzebuje sukcesu dyplomatycznego, o czym wie Castro, i te warunki to cena którą może zapłacić. To może także tłumaczyć pospieszne wypuszczanie terrorystów z obozu na Guantanamo. Budzi to głośne protesty opozycji ale Obama się tym nie przejmuje.
