Taliban Commander Who Launched Bombings in Kabul Is Now a Police Chief in Charge of Security
Wall Street Journal ^

KABUL—Mawlawi Zubair Mutmaeen used to run Taliban suicide-bombing squads in Kabul. On a recent day, in his new role as police chief for one of the Afghan capital’s districts, he was busy mediating a marital dispute.

A woman clad in a burqa complained she could no longer live with her interfering mother-in-law. Clearly used to being in command, Mr. Mutmaeen lectured the husband that under Islamic law he must provide his wife with “shelter and other basic necessities.”

More seriously, since all of these terrorists are now out in the open, can we not tag everyone of them and eliminate them all at once?

Don’t worry . Joseph Stolen Dementia Been Hidin’ has it all under control. You see the Taliwhackers told him that they would help us in every way possible. “ Sarc off”

This administration has been taken to the venerable woodshed by EVERY foreign advasary they have faced since they took office. The Iranians, Russians, Hatians, Chinks, and islamakazis of every stripe. One could say , “well they are just stupid” but even an idiot gets lucky once in a while. They are not stupid they are destroying this country , brick bay brick , line by line , on purpose so we can all become serfs of the New Feudal Order that they are desperate to usher in. For what purpose I will never understand. I mean after one is worth a couple hundred million what in the world could you want , that you cannot purchase? Good question. Maybe their “desires” are so despicable that it takes a completely subdued and mashed world population for them to get that thing they cannot buy. They desire to be our Monarchs whose very word is law.

Best friends with Biden, Austin and woke piece of schiff generals that can’t fight their way out of a paper bag because they care more about the military industrial complex and all the graft that goes with it.

This is disgusting, but really not much different from how the Allies dealt with post-war Germany and especially Japan. A few Nazis got hung. Fewer Japanese. Plenty of guilty Nazis were put back in positions of power. Heck murdering German psychiatrists came to the USA to teach and practice. One great murdering Nazi who use slave labor was put in charge of US missile and space research. They were “good” Nazis don’t you know.
