(INN) — Taliban insurgents told newly re-elected President Barack Obama on Wednesday to admit that the United States has lost the war in Afghanistan and to act accordingly by pulling its troops out of the country immediately.

“Obama must by now know that they have lost the war in Afghanistan,” said spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid in a statement posted on the Islamists’ website, as reported by AFP.

“So, without further lying and delays, they should leave our sacred land and focus on their own country instead.”

“The American administration should stop acting like police in the world and focus on solving their own people’s problems, and don’t make the world hate Americans even more,” the spokesman said, according to AFP.
