Opinion page editor Rick Holmes and other writers blog about national politics and issues. Holmes & Co. is a Blog for Independent Minds, a place for a free-flowing discussion of policy, news and opinion. This blog is the online cousin of the Opinion section of the MetroWest Daily News in Framingham, Mass. As such, our focus starts there and spreads to include Massachusetts, the nation and the world. Since successful blogs create communities of readers and writers, we hope the \x34& Co.\x34 will also come to include you.

What, exactly, was the Obama Regime thinking when it got the bright idea of having bilateral negotiations with the Taliban in Afghanistan? As might be expected, the Taliban got the immediate message that the US isn’t even pretending any longer that Karzai is anything other than a puppet, and the Taliban remember the delightful outcome of the withdrawal of American troops from Vietnam in 1973 and see the joys of history repeating itself. Karzai may be a puppet, but he’s no fool, and he knows when he’s being sold out. (maybe karzai should refuse to engage in negotiations until settlement buildings on occupied Indian lands near Washington is stopped) But the broader message is that Obama is willing to sell out friends and allies for political expediency, which is a great message to send to places like Israel, who are being told to be patient about Iran. In the meantime, looks like the Obama Regime, which is in a scandal ridden death spiral, is about to have the tail wag the dog, as he marches us into war in Syria. If the United States has a foreign policy, other than glorification of the regime on an ad hoc basis, I’d like someone to explain it to me.
