Vice President Joe Biden: “Who is that?”
Not published yet, the comment on Joe Biden to the Rolling Stone Magazine might cost General Stanley McChrystal his post as top US commander in Afghanistan.
Gen. Stanley McChrystal have had grown tired of questions about Biden since earlier dismissing a counterterrorism strategy the vice president had offered.
“Are you asking about Vice President Biden? Biden?” McChrystal says with a laugh. “Who’s that?” Hastings writes.
“Biden?” suggests a top adviser. “Did you say, ‘Bite Me?’ “
The article paints McChrystal as a man who “has managed to piss off almost everyone with a stake” in the Afghan conflict, including U.S. Ambassador Karl Eikenberry, Special Representative to Afghanistan Richard Holbrooke and National Security Adviser Jim Jones.

US gives Afghan war lords 2,1 Billion USD
The U.S. military is funding a massive protection racket in Afghanistan indirectly paying tens of millions of dollars to warlords, corrupt public officials and the Taliban to ensure safe passage of its supply convoys throughout the country, according to congressional investigators.
The security arrangements, part of a $2.16 billion transport contract, violate laws on the use of private contractors, as well as Defense Department regulations, and “dramatically undermine” larger U.S. objectives of curtailing corruption and strengthening effective governance in Afghanistan, a report released on Monday said.

What is the mistake of the the Obama Administration?
With a semi-Muslim and a Roman Catholic as their head, they do not acknowledge that Islam is the real enemy.
Any words that recognizes the enemy has been deleted from all documents related to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The US do no longer fight the evil of the religion of Islam. The US is only fighting “extremism”.
The quickest way to end the 1o year old war in Afghanistan is to loose it, by declaring that there is no war.
Obama seems to have this long term strategy:
” If Islam is not the enemy, better make Islam our peace partners against “extremism”. To get rid of “extremism”, we need to feed the Taliban, and make them “moderate” Muslims”.
