    That's why BO is also wrong about releases with these guys. We don't need to make the mistake Bush did when he released some. As thats how the schmoe who wasn't a Leader. Left went back to the fight. Was praised and given props. Became a leader, He then became the Head of AQIL.

    Except for one difference here......who BO released. Again.....I keep saying what most think and what the Afghans themselves think. No battlefield for them. They will sit back in their limos and use phones we can't tap. Then decide the battlefield.


    BO has increased the Risk on All Americans overseas, going overseas, and Our Military Personnel. While Putting a sign on the Backs of the 9800 he will be leaving in Afghanistan. He also Has increased the Risk to the country.....with the release of these guys.

    Sorry, but in this case I don't think that's the reason. After all, it was Senator Feinstein, a Democrat, who publically objected that she wasn't told, and she Chairs that committee! Obama tried to go around the rules and it backfired - but why didn't Obama trust his own people not to leak something of this importance?

    Changes nothing at all. For demands and desires of the Taliban do not override our LAW.

    Doesn't change anything. Congress has routinely been trusted with bigger, more important and more dangerous secrets than this.

    Heya Sarge ......it goes back to even when Karzai released a bunch of them. Of course BO protested.


    Afghanistan Releases 65 Prisoners from Parwan Facility ......


    Afghanistan has released 65 accused militants from a former U.S. detention facility near Bagram Air Base, despite warnings from the United States.

    Afghan officials said Thursday that the prisoners were freed from the Parwan Detention Facility earlier in the day. Among those scheduled to be released was Mohammad Wali, whom the United States says is a Taliban explosives expert who targeted U.S. and Afghan forces.

    The United States has protested the release of those prisoners since President Hamid Karzai announced several weeks ago that the prisoners' cases had been reviewed by the government and they had been cleared for release.

    In comments to reporters during a visit to Ankara (,Turkey) Thursday, Mr. Karzai defended the release saying the action "is of no concern to the U.S."

    Mr. Karzai says he hopes the U.S. will "stop harassing" Afghanistan's procedures and judicial authority and begin to respect the country's sovereignty. .....snip~

    False. Congress has routinely been entrusted with bigger, more controversial, more dangerous and more important secrets than this.

    We will be holding hearings. I’m sorry this is being portrayed as a Republican issue,” Rep. Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) said on MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown.”

    McKeon said Obama “broke the law” by not informing Congress 30 days before he released the five Taliban detainees from Guatanomo and sent them to Qatar. …

    McKeon noted that National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Sunday said the deal had been in the works for some time, and said Congress should have been informed along the way.

    I don’t know who they were talking to. I have not been a part of this and I’m the chairman of the committee,” he said.

    Now we’re 72 hours after the fact, and they still haven’t told us how they’re going to ensure that these five, top-level Taliban terrorists are not coming back into the fight,” McKeon said.....snip~

    That's the problem with jumping in the middle of conversation...you apparently missed the fact we were talking about the Bin Laden raid.
