White House Spokesperson: Taliban Not Terrorists

Latest from Washington, DC and the United States White House Spokesperson Department of OOPS.

Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schulz, when pressed by ABC news reporter Jonathan Karl about prisoner swaps said:

As you know, this was highly discussed at the time and prisoner swaps are a traditional end-of-conflict interaction that happens. As the war in Afghanistan wound down, we felt like it was the appropriate thing to do. The president’s bedrock commitment as commander in chief is to leave no man or woman behind. That’s the principle he was operating under.

When pressed further, Schultz got in deeper.

I would also point out that the Taliban is an armed insurgency, while ISIS is a terrorist group. So, we don’t make concessions to terrorist groups.

Washington Free Beacon posted the video on You Tube.

At least Jen should be happy that this time she did not step into it..
