Meanwhile, Obama is urging Karzai to come to a settlement with the Taliban, has secretly dropped charges in the case of a Florida man accused of funding the Pakistani Taliban, and is considering sending Taliban detainees back to Afghanistan as a gesture of good will.
Note also that Mahmood characterizes the Americans as enemies of his religion. Yet American authorities insist that this conflict has nothing to do with religion, and that even to study Islam in order to understand the motives and goals of people like Mahmood is unacceptable. Thus have Muslim Brotherhood elements in the U.S. rendered us complacent and defenseless before the advancing jihad which we refuse to understand.
"Video: Taliban Welcomes Rogue Afghan Who Shot US Soldiers as a Hero," by Muhammad Lila and Aleem Agha for ABC News, August 7 (thanks to Block Ness):
A new online video shows a rogue Afghan soldier receiving a hero's welcome from Taliban commanders, after returning from a mission where he killed an American soldier in cold blood.
The video, released by the Taliban's media propaganda wing, shows the soldier returning to a Taliban village in Ghaziabad in Kunar province, with dozens of Taliban men lined up to greet him. The soldier, wearing an Afghan Army uniform, identifies himself as Ghazi Mahmood, or "Warrior Mahmood."
Men with white Taliban flags, some with their faces covered, others carrying rocket propelled grenade launchers, throng around him, parading him through the village as insurgents shower him with flower garlands and chant "Long Live Mahmood."
"I opened fire on three Americans who were sitting together," the man explains calmly in the video. "The reason I killed them is because they have occupied our country. They are enemies of our religion and they kill our innocent people."
In another scene, the rogue soldier is seated outside a wooden structure, surrounded by armed insurgents, some of whose faces are blurred. Standing in a row in front are dozens of young madrassa students, who pump their fists into the air cheering "Jihad, Jihad" and "Long Live the warrior."...
On May 11th, a shooting took place in a camp run by the Afghan National Army, where American troops had gone to train Afghan soldiers. A rogue guard at the camp opened fire, killing at least one American and injuring two others before escaping. The Taliban immediately claimed responsibility, saying that a gunman named "Mahmood" was responsible and that he had returned to a Taliban camp in the remote region. The gunman's name was later confirmed by Afghan officials....
In the past, NATO and Afghan officials have said most of the attacks are motivated not by support for the Taliban, but for "private reasons" including grievances against local Afghan commanders, ethnic feuds, and depression. Senior U.S. officials have insisted the attacks don't indicate a high level of Taliban infiltration into the army.
NATO is populated by idiot dhimmis suffering from denial and self-delusion. "Grievances against local commanders, ethnic feuds, and depression"? Compare that to what Mahmood himself says below: "There are some people who are looking for the opportunity to kill infidels."
Today's video shows otherwise, suggesting that rogue Afghan soldiers who kill their American counterparts will find strong support among insurgents....
No kidding, really? Now, why is that? Why so many Misunderstanders of Islam?
"Are there others who will carry out attacks similar to what you have?" the rogue soldier is asked during the video.
"Yes" he replies. "There are some people who are looking for the opportunity to kill infidels. They will carry out their jihad and join us."
