    Different Taliban claim responsibility

    Different Taliban Groups Claim Role in Afghanistan Bombing - NYTimes.com

    In another stark reminder that we are at war and that we are losing civilians....

    KABUL, Afghanistan — Both Afghan and Pakistani Taliban groups claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing this week that killed eight Americans — seven of them C.I.A. officers — suggesting that the attack was viewed as a success and could be used to gain recruits and financial support.
    Our enemies fistfight over who gets credit. In another thread, it was being asked who we are at war with, what is the target, who is the enemy, where are they, all of your answers....right there.

    And here...

    Both the Afghan and Pakistani Taliban rely in part on money from foreign donors. Attacks that kill members of the international coalition make the groups seem successful and prompt donors to believe that their support is buying results and to send more money.
    we're at war with 'donors' mentioned here as well.

    Are there anymore questions concerning who we're at war with?

    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    Nope.

    For some all the evidence in the world won't be enough.

    The Obama administration. By insisting on treating terrorists like criminals instead of terrorists sends a very clear message.

    Also his administration's redefinition of war on terrorism.

    In a memo e-mailed this week to Pentagon staff members, the Defense Department's office of security review noted that "this administration prefers to avoid using the term 'Long War' or 'Global War on Terror' [GWOT.] Please use 'Overseas Contingency Operation.' "

    'Global War On Terror' Is Given New Name - washingtonpost.com

    He also has not given one single speech his entire presidency that's main subject was the war on terrorism.

    They're not camel jockeys. They're trained and intelligent engineers, soldiers, assassins. Many have knowledge of explosives, many specialize in every type of mercenary warfare, nearly all inspired by a religion that has been inspiring men who are heedless of death into killing the infidel for centuries.

    And ask this Cat who leaped over two rows of seats and onto our Nigerian undergarment bomber on board a fkight into the US where the potential airlner bomber pays cash for a ticket, a one way ticket, and then hops on a US bound flight without but a small carry on. Ask him if they're 'rowing' over here in dug outs. He might ask you if you've been sound asleep though....just sayin.

    What if we sneak a nuke over to Tora-Bora and then fire it at Iran. Then they retaliate by firing theirs at Tora-Bora.
