Hillary on Afghanistan: “if we simply leave and allow the Taliban to return, al-Qaeda “would come right back, and we’d be worse off in Pakistan.” & Sens. Kyl & Levin on Afghanistan strategy & FOX Panel Plus…

First some much needed humor:

Mashup by FleetwoodFactor

In this Parade piece on 24 hours with Hillary, an important insight into her position on our role in Afghanistan and the dangers posed by the Taliban:

(…)We sit at a table away from the crowd. Clinton has a hard edge to her foreign-policy views and generally positions herself to the right of her colleagues in national security. Yet she staunchly defends President Obama and his prerogatives. While she’s “not satisfied that we’re executing as we should” in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and elsewhere, she nonetheless argues for continuing “present directions” in most areas.

When I question whether the U.S. really has vital interests in Afghanistan, she shoots back that if we simply leave and allow the Taliban to return, al-Qaeda “would come right back, and we’d be worse off in Pakistan. She continues: “Despite how hard Afghanistan is, we have to make progress. And what we do and what happens in Afghanistan will affect Pakistan…

As we have noted here before, the British press has reported that Hillary and Gates while keeping their positions close to the vest, want increased troop levels in Afghanistan, it is essential. The mumbling of Juan Williams on the FOX Panel Plus (clip below) wondering why we should stay in Afghanistan is just ridiculous.

When Dana Perrino, former GWB press secretary points out the important progress we have made in security that allows women to participate in the Afghan society and educate themselves (which will lead to their economic freedom and an amazing economic renaissance for Afghanistan, we see this all over the world when women are able to educate themselves and enter the economy-and Hillary Clinton is very focused on this as well) Juan Williams actually says ‘it is nice for women to rule the world but that’s no reason to be in Afghanistan” He thinks this is funny. Incredible.

WHAT HAPPENED TO HUMAN RIGHTS?

MEMO TO ‘NEOPROGRESSIVES’ AND JOURNOLISTS: WOMEN’S RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS (Sen Feinstein gets it)

THE TALIBAN ARE OUR ENEMY AND PROVIDE AID AND SUSTENANCE TO AL QAEIDA

Variety:

…Beginning with a toilet joke — a spaceship essentially empties its lavatories on a pumpkin patch near poor, picked-upon Modesto, Calif., mutating the crop into anthropomorphic little gremlins — the spec reintroduces Ginormica (voiced by Reese Witherspoon), the Missing Link (Will Arnett), Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie) and B.O.B. (Seth Rogen), who are quickly dispatched to neutralize the threat.

Halloween, of course, allows most of the group to roam about freely, and Dr. Cockroach to lament about a lost lollipop. Eventually, the candy-munching pumpkins assemble for a pitched battle, though despite the occasional glimpses of pumpkin guts, it’s fine for the kids — though writer Adam F. Goldberg and director Peter Ramsey do indulge in some older-skewing references, from using a favorite “Scarface” quote (“Say hello to my little friend.”) to dressing Ginormica’s parents (Julie White, Jeffrey Tambor) as Frankenstein and his bride.
