New Army Manual Orders Soldiers Not To Criticize Taliban

Judicial Watch

Here is a strong indicator that the Obama Administration’s crusade to appease Islam has gone too far; a new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other outrageous things.

It gets better; the new manual, which is around 75 pages, suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture— not Taliban infiltration—is responsible for the increase in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces.

The soon-to-be-released Army handbook is still being drafted, but a mainstream newspaper got a sneak preview and published an article that should infuriate the American taxpayers funding the never-ending war on terror. The manual is being created because someone with authority bought the theory that cultural insensitivity is driving insider attacks on U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

More than three dozen insider attacks have killed 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year, according to the article, and some blame “American cultural ignorance.” The bottom line is that troops may experience social-cultural shock and/or discomfort when interacting with Afghan security forces, the new military handbook says. “Better situational awareness/understanding of Afghan culture will help better prepare [troops] to more effectively partner and to avoid cultural conflict that can lead toward green-on-blue violence.”

The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”

At least one high-ranking military official had the backbone to publicly criticize the new manual, albeit through a spokesperson. U.S. Marine General John Allen, the top commander in Afghanistan, doesn’t endorse it and rejected a proposed forward drafted by Army officials in his name. “He does not approve of its contents,” according to a military spokesman quoted in the story.

Earlier this year the Obama Administration changed the way federal agents are trained to combat terrorism and violent extremism by eliminating all materials that shed a negative light on Muslims. Under White House orders, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) destroyed instructional material that characterizes Muslims as prone to violence or terrorism in a government-wide call to end Islamophobia.

Under Obama practically every major federal agency has been ordered to participate in Muslim outreach initiatives, including the Justice Department with a special program to protect Islamic civil rights, Homeland Security meetings with extremist Muslim organizations and the nation’s space agency (NASA) with an unprecedented mission to focus on Muslim diplomacy.

Additionally, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a special order to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties long banned them from the U.S. and the administration sent an America-bashing mosque leader (Feisal Abdul Rauf) who blames U.S. foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks on a Middle Eastern outreach mission. The Obama Administration even ordered a government-funded meal program for home-bound seniors to offer halal cuisine prepared according to Islamic law.

Wild Thing's comment..................

Obama's Muslim friends are insulted so he orders more Political Correctness in the war.

At least U.S. Marine General John Allen realizes when at war we kill the enemy with weapons and not kindness.

You coddle the enemy, you lose.

Can you imagine if Obama had been president during WWII?

New Army Handbook for troops fighting Japanese soldiers. While storming Islands held by Japanese soldiers, troops are to remover their boots when entering dwelling places of Japanese soldiers or civilians. Do not refer to Japanese soldiers as "Japs" or "Nips". Do not make cartoons of them with big ears, slanty eyes, and buck teeth.

I hate obama! I hate PC!

That being said, I go back to George W. Bush and his timidity to define the enemy in the war with islam. With the early exception of the speech from the rubble, GWB never inspired us with a Patton type rousing or informative blast at islam or islamists. Instead he gave us the blundering, costly, questionable DHS. I really believe that GWB's lack of leadership helped give us the devil we have in the White House today.

obama is a muslim himself. The only question being whether he is principally a sunni or shiite.

To saddle our troops with leftist PC is to endanger them even more.

You're right Tom. GW was the start of a lot of this crap. We can't forget his ROE's where our troops couldn't return fire if Iraqi insurgents were firing from a mosque.
