They’re Gone? Martha Coakley Clueless on AF-PAK Strategic Theater

As I've reported many times, the Taliban's active terror cells in the AF-PAK security theater constitute a regional network grouping that knows no national borders. The Waziristan region of the tribal hinterlands is especially ripe with Taliban jihadi activities, with operations being conducted from Kabul to PesHawar.

It's thus extremely troubling to listent Democrat Martha Coakley, who's running against Scott Brown in the Massachusetts special election, to suggest that the Taliban "are gone" from Afghanistan, and thus it's time for the U.S. to come home:

“I think we have done what we are going to be able to do in Afghanistan. I think that we should plan an exit strategy. Yes. I’m not sure there is a way to succeed. If the goal was and the mission in Afghanistan was to go in because we believed that the Taliban was giving harbor to terrorists. We supported that. I supported that. They’re gone. They’re not there anymore.”

Of course... and the Viet Cong were patriotic democrats fighting Yankee imperialism.

How bout Martha sets out for a month-long camping and hiking expedition in the Afghani hinterlands, and then report back to us on the situation... if we ever hear from her dumb ass again.

Radical Islam's got their useful idiots too, apparently...

Do the RIGHT THING, Massachusetts!

i have a feeling that she was not referring to the Taliban being gone but that the terrorists were gone.
