    is the one recognized by our government, would the action of rohrbacher, bachmann, et. al. fall into the category of "giving aid and comfort to our enemies"?

      This is not so much about the Obama administration being against the ANF as much as they believe they have to accept the current president, even if they do not always do his bidding.

      This administration has not done anything to keep these guys out of power in Afghanistan.

      The National Front is a political party, not an alternative government.  The United States recognizes the national government in Kabul...right now led by Hamid Karzai.  Nobody has asked the United States to recognize any other government.

      These "enemies" you refer to are the people who fought the Taliban for many years before our intervention, and toppled their government at our behest and with our air support in 2001.  The real "enemies" in Afghanistan are the Taliban, not the National Front.
