    BTW.....I don't think it matters much to who we talk to. Now they just shoot us in the back. Then surrender!


    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~

    "I thank the government of Qatar, especially its emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad [Al Thani], who made sincere efforts for release of these leaders and for their mediation and for hosting them."

    When Qatar takes the role of intermediary, it plays this role on a humanitarian basis which is the whole concept of Qatar foreign relations," he said.

    The five Taliban are understood to be limited to living in Qatar for their first year of freedom, a condition that the Afghan government on Sunday said was against "international law" and called for their immediate release.

    A White House official told Al Jazeera on Saturday that the US administration would not have transferred prisoners from Guantanamo "unless the threat they may pose to the US can be mitigated".

    He said the Taliban prisoners would be "subject to restrictions on their movement and activities"......snip~

    Now the Taliban will re-nig on the deal.....and they Still will refuse to talk to us other than thru Qatar. There goes BO's plan for Getting the Taliban to the table for Peace Talks.
    To be fare, we have to give Obama a brownie point for not using Air Force One to fly these five Taliban leaders to Qatar.

    Wait a sec, has anyone looked at Air Force One's manifest for last weeks flight to Afghanistan ?

    Nothing would surprise today.

    Just think, we still have two more years and six months of more lies, cover ups and revelations to be exposed.

    Re: Parents of fallen soldier: Our son died looking for Bergdahl and the military lie

    It seems an odd story, suddenly a group of soldiers sworn to secrecy suddenly ignore the 'letter' they signed and so far at least with no names mentioned start making claims. I do note Bethea (now a CREATIVE writer teacher at Brooklyn College ) who claims a fellow Officer died searching for Bowe Berdahl makes no claim of a 'letter'- did he claim he signed a non disclosure letter?

    If the Army is making up a cover story for the search (why do that, I'd say America would eat-up the search for a missing American like they did the lies about Jessica Lynch) then the death of SSG Curtis is a lie as well... he is said to have died in a firefight to clear a hospital.

    I'm a little leery of claiming the deaths of American combat troops in firefights for hospitals and IEDs while on vehicle patrol is the same as searching for Berdahl.

    It will be interesting to see with the soldiers step forward and publicly make their claims.

    Sort of reminds me of Jessica Lynch where the World Nutt Dully printed the bio Ms. Lynch penned claims her bones were beaten by her guards until splintered, and she was raped and sodomized repeatedly. WND 11/06/2003

    The Army tried to say she fought back hard, was stabbed and shot, only surrendering when she ran out of ammo....

    She infact was treated well by her captors, given medical treatment and her 'rescue' was a staged PR stunt.

    Then there is Pat Tillman and the coverup on how he died, which had even the eventually disgraced General McChrystal helping conceal the 'friendly' fire incident.

    But none of them could keep the 'secret' for longer than a month- this one was held up for 5 years, and one about what the whistle blowers all consider a deserter...

    I'm going to wait and see if the accusers are named and if Bethea's story about how LT. Andrews can be verified by the Officers running the 'search'...

    I posted a link to this site in the bar... some historic photos that are pretty damn amazing. One in particular has haunted me since I saw it.

    Afghan women at a public library during the 1950s.



    The Afghanistan government was shifting towards democracy in the 1950s and 60s before the Taliban took over. Women could work, become educated, dress casually and use many of the modern day services that men could.

    Makes me wonder WTH we didn't stomp these roaches into sand long before now. Guess we didn't see that slippery slope lefties claim doesn't exist.

    No, it wasn't the Army or the Pentagon who made that claim. That story was started by someone else who passed it on to the Washington Post. Rumor has it that their source was a Congressman from Lynch's home state. The Pentagon never said anything about what Lynch did.

    But any old lie will do to s*** on the American military.

    Even ABC News and NPR are reporting this stuff now. This looks really bad for the White House.

    What does renig mean.

    To "renig" is to go back on something.

    In cards renigging often occurs when, for example, the players are forced to follow suit such as spades, and a player follows with a heart, but another spade leads, and the same player who played the heart plays a spade. In pinochle, it is penalized by forfeiture of the hand, and either you going set or your opponents automatically making their bid. In hearts, the player who renigs is forced to take 26 points, while the other players have no change to their score.....snip~
