Exclamation Half of Taliban Fighters Return to Terror After Release From Prison

Half of Taliban Fighters Return to Terror After Release From Prison


Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, February 23, 2013, 2:48 PM

A Taliban prison in Afghanistan.

At least half of the Taliban members in Afghanistan released from prison return to the insurgency according to a Pakistani official.

3News reported:

At least half the Afghan Taliban recently freed from Pakistani prisons have rejoined the insurgency, a Pakistani intelligence official says, throwing into question the value of such goodwill gestures that the Afghan government requested to restart a flagging peace process.

A senior Western official who spoke on condition of anonymity so he could talk freely confirmed that “some” newly freed Taliban have returned to the battlefield.

The development underscores the difficulties in reaching a political deal with the Taliban before the end of 2014, when NATO and US troops are scheduled to have completed their withdrawal from Afghanistan. Many Taliban released from the US prison at Guantanamo Bay have also gone underground.

Despite some recent signs from the Taliban that they are willing to share power and want to avoid a civil war, the militants may well be playing for time until 2014.

As to nationally suicidal: "Goodwill gestures", I guess it's fair stating that the Afghan Government is just as asinine and stupid as America's ruling elite Political Warlords.

This Veteran believes that The U.S. Military most certainly deserves Much Better!!!
