Confirmed: Obama to Release Five Taliban Detainees From Gitmo
Humanevents ^ | March 10, 2012 | Jim Hoft

Another brilliant forreign policy move by the community organizer in chief...

The Obama Administration will release five Gitmo Taliban detainees in a 'peace' deal with the Islamist terror group.

This comes two days after the Taliban murdered six British troups.

Reuters reported:

Five Taliban detainees held at the Guantanamo Bay military prison have agreed to be transferred to Qatar, a move Afghanistan believes will boost a nascent peace process, President Hamid Karzai's spokesman said on Saturday. The transfer idea is part of U.S. efforts to bring the Taliban to the negotiating table to avoid prolonged instability in Afghanistan after foreign combat troops leave the country at the end of 2014.

"We are hopeful this will be a positive step towards peace efforts," Karzai's spokesman Aimal Faizi told Reuters, adding the Taliban detainees would be re-united with their families in Qatar if the transfer takes place.

"It would be one of a series of good-faith measures that could set in motion the first substantial political negotiations on the conflict in Afghanistan since the Taliban government was toppled in 2001 in a U.S.-led invasion.

A year after it was unveiled, the Obama administration's peace initiative may soon offer the United States a historic opportunity to broker an end to a war that began as the response to the September 11, 2001, al Qaeda attacks on the United States."

"Peace initiative" indeed. Sheer madness.

Afghan men shout anti-U.S slogans during a protest in Kabul February 23, 2012. The Taliban urged Afghans on Thursday to target foreign military bases and kill Westerners in retaliation for burnings of copies of the Koran at NATO's main base in the country as a third day of violent protests began.

After Obama apologized to terrorists, now he's releasing some more, waiting for them to kill more American troops, in order to apologize again!

As is the case with EVERYTHING this moron does, he’s engaged in treasonous mental masturbation. He obviously finds it

God save us if his next term is not in Leavenworth.

Could this be Hāmid Karzay's blackmail to Obama's pitiful apology for American soldiers who mistakenly burned some of the precious Korans used as vessel's for messages between Muslims and were part of the trash left behind?...didn't the Palestinians (throwing 100s of Korans into a sewer?) Obama and the Media are throwing these brave soldiers under the bus...Obama is a disgrace...he jumped the gun again - he hates America, especially White Americans. Korans are destroyed daily but only this half Black, half American abuses his office and his soldiers like this...is it because Obama is Muslim? Obama is a fool.

I’m Jewish.

When I saw that, after 9/11 tragedy, the Americans elected a man with his middle name Hussein and family name O(s)bama, son and step-son of Muslims, I just knew a huge disaster was on its way ...

I wonder how many Americans will die because of this dreadful decision? Quite likely there will be some.

I don't expect OMuslim cares a whit. After all, they are probably not any of his countrymen. All he cares about is himself and his Muslim buddies.

He is not a fool, but a dangerous enemy of the United States and the Western world.

Meanwhile ...

At least 14 youths have been stoned to death in Baghdad in the past three weeks in what appears to be a campaign by Shi’ite militants against youths wearing Western-style “emo” clothes and haircuts.

At least 14 bodies of youths have been brought to three hospitals in eastern Baghdad bearing signs of having been beaten to death with rocks or bricks ...

The moral of this to our troops - the muzzie usurper in chief doesn’t give a damn about you or America, so when dealing with his Taliban bros “when in doubt, take ‘em out” !

“... waiting for them to kill more American troops, in order to apologize again!”
