How many have to be slaughtered before the fantasists let go of their delusion and address the ideology that inspires jihad? Obama is still stalking the Taliban as a peace partner. Such anti-freedom, pro-jihad foreign policy is madness. These open attacks on coalition forces and less devout Muslims are daily now.

A SUSPECTED Taliban infiltrator has opened fire, killing 11 Afghan policemen, a day after two attacks by Afghans on NATO soldiers and police killed six.
The latest incident, in the Delaram district of Afghanistan's western Nimroz province, is the latest in a series of shootings in which members of the country's security forces have targeted local and foreign colleagues.
"Unfortunately 11 of our brave national police were killed in this cowardly attack," Nimroz governor Abdul Karim Brahawi said.
"Initial investigation shows the shooter was a Taliban infiltrator. He was also killed when police returned fire," Brahawi said.
Provincial deputy police chief Abdul Majid Latifi confirmed that 11 police had been killed by "a man in police uniform", adding that an investigation into the attack was under way.
The shooting came a day after six international soldiers were killed by Afghans they were working with.
Three American soldiers were shot by an Afghan policeman who invited them to a meal in Helmand province and three other troops were killed by an Afghan civilian employed on a NATO base in the same province, officials said.
