White House Says Taliban Not A Terrorist Group. Wait, What? | The Daily Caller

ISIS is a terrorist group. The Taliban though? Nope. Not at all.

That’s apparently what the White House believes, with deputy press secretary Eric Schultz making that known during Wednesday’s White House briefing.

When pushed by ABC News’ Jon Karl as to how the the U.S.’s swap with the Taliban for Bowe Bergdahl is different from the Jordanian’s swap with ISIS for the release of Japanese prisoner Kenji Goto, Schultz explained that while ISIS is indeed a terrorist group, the Taliban is an “armed insurgency.”
