White House: Yes, The Taliban Is a Terrorist Organization


Tuesday Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, called on the administration not only to clarify how the deal went down, without Congressional approval, but to show “what steps the president has taken to guarantee this exchange is not a signal that it is open season on our fellow citizens, both military and civilian personnel, serving our country abroad.”

“We must all be mindful that the United States has diplomatic, civilian and military personnel deployed in other countries with both challenging security environments and active terrorist networks interested in targeting not just our facilities but our people,” Boehner wrote in a statement today. “One of their greatest protections--knowing that the United States does not negotiate with terrorists – has been compromised.”
