Exclamation Obama Admin Quietly Releases Taliban Inmates From Gitmo To Open Peace Talks In Afghan

Obama Admin Quietly Releases Taliban Inmates From Gitmo To Open Peace Talks In Afghanistan

by AWR Hawkins29 Jul 2013, 11:57 AM PDT63post a comment

Without an official announcement or any publicity, the Obama administration released five members of the Taliban from Gitmo in order to open peace talks in Afghanistan. reports that "a top U.S. official said the prisoners were released under the condition that they will not engage in any violent activity."

The terror activity of those released is not in question. Rather, their release is intended as a gesture to get peace talks rolling between the U.S., Afghanistan, and the Taliban.

Although this release is a stark departure from the standing U.S. policy of "zero tolerance [of] negotiations with terrorists and releasing of prisoners," Obama's State Department has may have found a loophole via their reluctance to define the Taliban as a terror group as of late.

One thing is for certain--the more prisoners Obama can release from Gitmo in a piecemeal fashion the quicker he can justify asking Congress to cut off funding for the prison altogether.

Of course Obama ordered that the: "QUIET RELEASE of Taliban Prisoners from Gitmo".

Such is so typical.

The Imperial One usually sneaks things that most Americans despise and now even what Muslims much prefer past scrutiny, on Friday nights.

All have gone home and there's none around left to contest his even enemy friendly dictates.

My Salute & "GarryOwen" to all TRUE Patriots.
