From Prison To Power
Rulers of Taliban were released from Guantanamo Bay by Obama/Biden in Bergdahl Prisoner Swap
The Taliban members released from Guantanamo Bay by the Obama/Biden administration in 2014 in exchange for admitted US Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl helped plan the Taliban’s return to power and now have high level positions in the Taliban Islamist government in Afghanistan. The ‘Gitmo Five’ were labelled “hardest of the hardcore” by US intelligence officials who urged Obama and Biden to reconsider their decision.
Taliban leaders go from jail, to negotiating table, to Kabul to ruling Afghanistan
When Taliban fighters seized Afghanistan’s presidential palace, news agencies carried photos of the scene, and one of the people in those photos was a prisoner named Khairullah Khairkhwa who was held at Guantanamo Bay from 2002 to 2014.
Obama released him from Guantanamo in the Bergdahl Prisoner Swap. Now he’s part of the Taliban government! Obama freed Bergdahl the traitor for radical Islamists claiming that the radicals being released in 2014 had been fully “vetted” and were reformed! Sure thing! They reformed all right… they reformed Afghanistan!
Worse yet, they are now positioned with enough U.S. military equipment to reform the balance of the Middle East. In prophetic terms, that will have the effect of reforming the region into the image of Satan just as prophesied in Revelation 12 and as Paul warned in 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9.
In light of the disastrous, radical turn for Afghanistan, what is our State Department concerned with? The only request from the State Department is for the new Taliban government to be inclusive! You’re kidding right? It doesn’t have gays and women in key leadership positions like good old Uncle Sam?
CNN seems surprised to discover “No women or members from Afghanistan’s ousted leadership were selected for acting cabinet positions or named to advisory roles, in spite of the Taliban’s promises of an inclusive government and more moderate form of Islamic rule.”
A Coming Caliphate
The appointed new Prime Minister of the Taliban government is Hassan Akhund, who was in power the last time the Taliban controlled Afghanistan, in 1996 to 2001. Under his leadership, the Taliban first declared themselves an Islamic Caliphate.
It will be interesting to see what Caliphate strategy the Taliban employs this time around. Will they try to go it alone again or have they learned from the ill-fated attempt of ISIS to wait for an announcement from Turkey.
Followers of the dominant Sunni version of Islam, the Taliban has a long history of practicing the “Holy War” of Jihad similar to ISIS. What’s in a name! It turns out a lot. They’ve declared their name as… The Islamic Emirates of Afghanistan.
Committed to Islam
The Taliban’s campaign to portray themselves as normal citizens of a new government is a farce and demonstrates, once again, that negotiating or even attempting to influence Islam is a western delusion.
Committed Islamists like the Taliban play the west for all they can while rigidly following Shariah Law. Shariah means denying religious freedom and freedom of the press, sidelining woman as second-class citizens, beheading infidels and approving the Islamic practice of sex-trafficking. And on and on…
Taliban Slated to Celebrate Inauguration of New Government on 911
Obama and Biden may be pleased by the Taliban’s radical appointments—days before the 20th anniversary of the 911 terror attack—but the whole mess is a slap in the face to the U.S. and its Western allies and all the men and women who were killed on 911 and in Afghanistan fighting for freedom the last 20 years!
So now you have Afghanistan, that Biden agreed to desert, stocked with billions of dollars in American weapons, left there on purpose by Biden, and Taliban soldiers who were released by Obama and Biden running Afghanistan.
Could it come more full-circle than that?
Actually, yes, care to take a guess when this new Taliban terror government funded and created by Obama and Biden is going to be inaugurated?
