Obama Losing Ground in Afghanistan As Taliban Behead 15, Slaughter 70 in Ghanzi Province

This is what happens when you let a liberal take the reins in a war:

Hundreds of Taliban fighters have stormed a strategic district in an Afghan province southwest of the capital and are on the verge of capturing it after killing dozens of people and beheading some in days of fighting, officials said on Friday.

The Ghazni provincial government has lost contact with police in the province’s western district of Ajrestan, said Asadullah Safi, deputy police chief of the area. An army unit reported that fighting was raging late on Friday afternoon, another provincial official said.

“If there is no urgent help from the central government, the district will collapse,” Safi said earlier.

The battle for Ajrestan illustrates the grave challenges facing Afghanistan’s new president and the security forces in holding territory as foreign combat troops prepare to leave at the end of the year.

No longer pinned down by U.S. air cover, Taliban fighters are attacking Afghan military posts in large numbers with the aim of taking and holding ground.

Ghazni is on the main highway linking Kabul to southern Afghanistan, where the Taliban have been making advances in recent months.

Fifteen civilians were beheaded, some of them children.

This is some next level evil we are dealing with here.

And Obama never saw it coming.

If only he read all those briefings…
