Back in 2012, Barack Obama is quoted as saying “the Taliban are not our enemies and we don’t want to fight them.” Two years later, he would release five of the most notorious Taliban leaders, despite being warned of the dangers by his advisers, in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who is believed to have renounced his American citizenship, deserted his troop in search of the Taliban. Questions still remain whether Bergdahl was a prisoner of war or whether he was friendly with the Taliban. This morning, the world has come to know once again just how brutally dangerous the Taliban terrorists truly are.

Early in the morning, hours after Barack Obama spoke about the end of U.S. missions in Afghanistan, Taliban terrorists launched a terror attack at a military school in the city of Peshawar in neighboring Pakistan. Witnesses say at least six Taliban terrorists stormed the school and began shooting people at random. More than 120 people were killed, at least 84 of them children in the 1st through 10th grade. The attack was bloody and brutal. Officials fear that up to 500 additional teachers and students are being held as prisoners by the Taliban in the school.

Fox News is reporting that the school was specifically picked because it where the children of Pakistani Army staff attend. In addition to the death count, which is growing by the minute, more than 250 were injured and hospitals are overflowing trying to care for them.

One news organization is reporting that the Pakistani Army exchanged gunfire with the terrorists killing five, but more are believed to be inside holding hundreds more teachers and children hostage.
