Dem Rep Says Taliban Same As American Soldiers During the Revolution
When you’re doing backflips to justify Obama’s illegal actions, you’re going to say some stupid things:
According to sources, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., made the comparison during a House briefing late Monday with administration officials on the trade of Taliban members for American Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
Nadler apparently made the point that the Taliban, as non-state actors, have a status similar to that of American soldiers who fought the British during the Revolutionary War.
Enter, Brenda Lee:
He said: “In no way was I comparing their values, their efforts, and their cause to that of our founding fathers, and to suggest otherwise is absurd. Obviously, I strongly oppose everything the Taliban stands for — from their horrendous support for terrorists and their suppression of human rights to their treatment of women and murderous hatred of America.”
Saying something like this isn’t surprising. I mean, it’s not easy to justify surrendering the authority of Congress.
