"Where exactly is America going in this Handbasket?

America - on its way to Hell in a Handbasket
Note: Included in my daily newspaper "The Bee Sting Daily"  is an article posted by our friend, Bare Naked Islam (BNI).  In glancing over many of the daily news blogs this morning, I noted BNI's latest post is the Number One post of the day, and for good reason!  It relates to a major shift in USA's foreign policies - a frightening shift that demonstrates Washington is negotiating with America's enemies.  Is it too late to ask when or if Congress will WAKE UP and SPEAK UP, or has everyone decided to collect their paychecks while turning American into another Islamic State?  After ten years of fighting Islamic terrorists, we're now sharing cupcakes and tea with them!..... Let's read BNI's "Post of the Day":

Barack Obama surrenders to the Taliban

But while he’s working out the details, he’ll let thousand of troops stay in Afghanistan with the same Obama-directed suicidal rules of engagement.

The Guardian  The US has agreed in principle to releasing top officials from Afghanistan terrorist group in exchange for starting process of negotiations.
The US has agreed in principle to release high-ranking Taliban officials from Guantánamo Bay in return for the Afghan insurgents’ agreement to open a political office for peace negotiations in Qatar, the Guardian has learned.
According to sources familiar with the talks in the US and in Afghanistan, the handful of Taliban figures will include Mullah Khair Khowa, a former interior minister, and Noorullah Noori, a former governor in northern Afghanistan.
More controversially, the Taliban are demanding the release of the former army commander Mullah Fazl Akhund. Washington is reported to be considering formally handing him over to the custody of another country, possibly Qatar.
 ”To take this step, the [Obama] administration have to have sufficient confidence that the Taliban are going to reciprocate,” said Vali Nasr, who was an Obama administration adviser on the Afghan peace process until last year. “It is going to be really risky. Guantánamo is a very sensitive issue politically.”

Read some of the comments at BNI's blog ...

Is BNI the only conservative blog concerned about the shift in US policies?  Hardly!  Check out the latest entry at Jihad Watch, by Robert Spencer: - "Historic shift in U.S. foreign policy: Obama seeks ties with Muslim Brotherhood."  And, read the following from The Independent Sentinel,  "Obama to Release Major Taliban Leader Who was Captured at the Expense of Soldiers' Lives."


Some may argue that since the Islamists have taken over most of the ME, after dictators of those same countries were toppled this past year, the U.S. has no other option but to sit down with terrorist organizations.  Wrong!  How well did all the apologizing to Islam by Obama go since he took office?  Go no further than Iran, a country on our enemy's list for over 30 years; the country Obama planned to "sit down" and chat with; only to hear Iran threaten the U.S. just two short days ago!  Is it a matter of stupidity; ignorance of Islamic history; or is someone in Washington actually pushing all the wrong buttons to send America to "Hell in a Hand basket?"

Apologies to terrorists NEVER brings about peace, terrorists are not in the business of peace-making.  Ask our friends in Israel!
