Americans were treated to the theater of the absurd as they watched a humiliated Biden administration bend over backward to paint the Taliban as some kind of trusted partner with a future in responsible governance. Apparently, nobody got word to the Taliban that they were hurting Joe Biden’s damage control international rehabilitation effort when they were committing door-to-door executions, cutting off tongues, preventing Americans from getting to the airport, and welcoming back Osama Bin Laden’s security chief and arms supplier complete with a Cheshire Cat smile. One of the worst examples of rose-colored awfulness was the States’ Department spokesman, Ned Price, opining that these savages need to meet their “commitments and obligations in Afghanistan on freedom of travel, respecting basic rights of people, upholding … commitments on counterterrorism, not carrying out reprisal violence against those who stayed, and forming an inclusive government.” Yeah. They won’t be doing any of that. Asking an organization that traffics in terror to conduct counterterrorism operations was the most laughable part of an altogether shameful statement.
