Sheriff Joe: Those Guys We’re Bombing Aren’t Enemies “Per Se”

So, what, are we dropping Hershey’s Kisses from the drones in the tribal regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan?

(Fox News) The White House on Monday defended Vice President Joe Biden for saying that the Taliban isn’t an enemy of the United States despite the years spent fighting the militant Islamic group that gave a home to Al Qaeda and its leader Usama bin Laden while he plotted the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

“It’s only regrettable when taken out of context,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said of the vice president’s remarks in an interview published Monday.

Said context

“Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That’s critical,” Biden said. “There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy, because it threatens U.S. interests. If, in fact, the Taliban is able to collapse the existing government, which is cooperating with us in keeping the bad guys from being able to do damage to us, then that becomes a problem for us.”

Then why are we bombing them, Joe?

    Well it is easy to see how Biden adds foreign and national security “gravitas” to this administration.
