Anybody believe this diagnosis by Dr. BoneSpurs?
of course, no matter what withdrawal the Genius Negotiator finally gets, the Taliban will wait a respectful 2 weeks and then take the whole country. This has been a disaster ever since Bush withdrew our forces to invade Saddam in Iraq.


Trump says he canceled secret Camp David meeting with Taliban leaders
[www.cnn.com]

President Donald Trump said Saturday that Taliban leaders were to travel to the US for secret peace talks this weekend but that the meeting has been canceled and he's called off peace talks with the militant group entirely.
Trump tweeted that he scrapped the meeting after the Taliban took credit for an attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, that killed a dozen people, including an American soldier.

Inviting Taliban leaders onto American soil is an unprecedented move and a significant development in America's longest running war just days from the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. It comes after Trump said as recently as late last month that he is planning to withdraw thousands of US forces from Afghanistan but will keep 8,600 troops in the country at least for the time being. It's not clear if Trump's Saturday night announcement will impact that plan.
"Unbeknownst to almost everyone, the major Taliban leaders and, separately, the President of Afghanistan, were going to secretly meet with me at Camp David on Sunday," Trump tweeted Saturday night.

Trump claimed that before traveling to the US on Saturday evening, "Unfortunately, in order to build false leverage, they admitted to......an attack in Kabul that killed one of our great great soldiers, and 11 other people."
"I immediately cancelled the meeting and called off peace negotiations," Trump added.

He demanded a 200-foot gold statue of him with a "TRUMP" casino at its base and they told him to go to hell.

He should build windmills all over the country and give them cancer.

In any discussion, please remember to mention that the Pakistanis have been backing the Taliban for decades. They want to remove the influence their arch-enemy India has had with the various governments and warlords.
Trump should have been arm-twisting the Pakistanis this whole time. (and that goes for Bush, Clinton, Bush the lesser and Obama as well)

Trump was forced to cancel the meeting. NOAA issued a urgent warning about a Category 5 weather calamity heading towards Camp David from Alabama.

I keep checking around and find no definitive attribution. Does anyone know if this is real?:

Anyway, that's the way he observes the anniversary of Sept 11...just like he sent congratulations to Poland for being Invaded by the Nazis.

The Treasonous Republican Party and the artless Democrats are responsible for ridding us of this foul blot on American history.

When they found out that he wanted them to pay for the wall as part of the deal, they said "do we look Mexican?" and cancelled the meeting.

I think he cancelled when he found out that Camp David is NOT one of his golf resorts and he does not get any revenue out of it. Will be rescheduled soon at Mar-a-Lago

Hosting the Taliban at the anniversary of 9/11 is brilliant. Why not just do it at ground zero, I'm sure that there are many from the Bronx who would be happy to give him a cheer..

In his defense, Drumpf really can't tell the difference.
