Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said on Fox News’ “Special Report” that it was “embarrassing” and beyond parody that the Obama administration refuses to call the Taliban a terrorist organization. (VIDEO: Josh Earnest: Not ‘Accurate’ To Call Paris Terrorism ‘Radical Islam’)

KRAUTHAMMHER: It slits throats. It attacks buses. It drives car bombs into markets and it isn’t a terrorist organization. Look, you can’t parody this administration. The idea that the United States would not do this is preposterous. Of course we do. And also, the idea that the war is winding down, tell that to anybody who lives in Afghanistan.

This is a fantasy. Obama pretending that the war on terror, the war in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq are all winding down, and the wars are all back. I mean, this is sort of embarrassing.
