Obama security team ponders black ops mission to kill Taliban 5 in Qatar (Dude, what?)
The Examiner ^ | June 8, 2014 | Jim Kouri

Posted on 06/08/2014 5:17:09 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

A former U.S. intelligence official, who worked on covert operations throughout the Middle East and Latin America, claims the scuttlebutt among Beltway security experts is that there may be an a abrupt end to the freedom of the Taliban terrorists released from Guantanamo Bay's detention center, he intimated on Sunday.

"With all the negative publicity generated by [President Barack] Obama's Taliban prisoner swap for an Army sergeant, Bowe Bergdahl, the Commander in Chief is being offered plans for covert operations to 'terminate with extreme prejudice' the five terrorists now living relatively free in the Arab nation [of] Qatar," said the deep background intelligence source.

Qatar's Al Udeid Air Base is home to the United States Central Command and United State Air Force Central Command. It would not be difficult to bring in a squad of special forces troops to launch a covert operation to kill the newly released five Taliban members especially since they are being allowed to roam that nation and are even heralded as heroes by some of the Qatari people, he said.

"Obama's releasing of Taliban detainees from the U.S. prison in Gitmo [Guantanamo Bay, Cuba] without notifying the appropriate member of the House and Senate has led to Republicans calling the prisoner swap the beginning of the end of the controversial military detention center and the continued release of detainees back to Middle Eastern nations," said political strategist Mike Baker.

Baker said he would not be surprised if Obama decides to demonstrate that should any of the detainees he releases return to the battlefield, they will be killed. He also points to Obama's alleged narcissistic character trait that make him prone to seeking adulation of others and avoiding criticism....

Political decision after the outrage of the swap of 5 terrorists for one deserter.

Clickbait. Not biting.

Obama doesn’t admit mistakes. He doubles down and moves on.

The problem with this article is that it is illegal to simply kill someone in a friendly country which has diplomatic relations with the US. Not that this would bother Obama, but it would set off a diplomatic nightmare that he would have no ability to deal with.

Prisoners in a war where we don’t actually defeat the enemy will always be a problem.

After WWII we released POWs to nations that were truly beaten and even if the POW wanted to continue the fight, he would find little support among his countrymen.

He's considering it in the media - since such trial balloons are his preferred method of acting tough.

Did you know....

The Taliban opened an Office in Qatar last year.

Seems folks were having trouble contacting the Taliban.

Who in the Obama administration visited Qatar last.

What a set up. I'm inferring that the USA helped to set up this office.

Re smart chips in their hineys

That's the one I was hoping for. If US military was too dumb to do that, then the second option is to make their comrades WONDER if they have smart chips or if they were perhaps turned in captivity, since even our obamified military isn't likely to have let them loose without a better motive than we seem to have had. One can only hope.
