Allen West “Does the Obama administration really think they’re kidding?”

Written by Allen West

Globally, we are facing a crisis of respect, regard and credibility — but in particular with Afghanistan and Iran. Just this past week, Afghan President Hamid Karzai allowed the release of 65 Taliban prisoners who had the blood of Americans on their hands. In a blatant show of disrespect to the sacrifices of American men and women in his country, Karzai stated, “If Afghan judicial authorities decide to release a prisoner, it does not and should not depend on America.” Never mind the fact we were fighting to protect his people from the murderous intent of those people.

Further, Karzai said Bagram prison was “against the law and Afghanistan’s sovereignty and one of the matters of tension between Kabul and Washington.” I hope the US will stop harassing Afghan judicial authorities and respect Afghanistan’s sovereignty.”

I don’t actually recall Karzai complaining about harassment when he was receiving tens of billions in American taxpayer dollars. That’s the thanks we get.
