The Obama administration has tentatively agreed to release four Taliban leaders from Guantanamo prison and allow them to resettle in Afghanistan, Paul Sperry of the Hoover Institution wrote in the New York Post. Sperry, the author of the book Infiltration, said that Afghan President Hamid Karzai wants to free some top Taliban commanders who led deadly attacks on American troops when the United States invaded Afghanistan after 9/11. Among the prisoners are some of the most dangerous detainees remaining at Gitmo, and include a former Taliban deputy intelligence chief, former interior minister, defense chief and military commander, Sperry wrote. Shockingly, the Obama administration has tentatively agreed to release the four suspected terrorists if Karzai can certify they no longer pose a threat, he said. They must disavow terrorism and any allegiance to al-Qaida. Karzai claims his government obtained such assurances in a recent trip to Gitmo, according to Sperry. He noted that a recent intelligence report found that more than one in four of the 600 former Guantanamo detainees rejoined the jihad. The agreement comes as there appears to be rampant infiltration of Taliban insurgents in the Afghan national army and police, he wrote. The Obama administration agreed to the deals, according to Sperry, in order to help stabilize Afghanistan ahead of the 2014 withdrawal of troops. They also help Obama fulfill his 2008 campaign pledge to empty and shutter Gitmo, he wrote. Antiwar activists among his base are upset hes freed just 70 detainees, leaving 168. The White House last month confirmed the president still plans on closing the prison camp.

Because, you know, there is no trend of muslims we release coming back to attack our troops the minute hey get home. That would NEVER happen!
Not that I doubt their extremism (WH STAFF); I tend to think it’s a wee close to November to carry on with bs like this...
Ohhh yeah - I believe that!
Obama is crazy.
Can we lay odds on how long it will take them to reappear and kill Americans?
The blood will be on Hussein 0bama's hands!
How nice - and how very broadminded - of the president to allow these characters another opportunity to kill our troops and plot attacks on American citizens and infrastructure.
You’ve got to give him credit where credit is due - President Hussein is quite the internationalist.
OK, let’s say the four promise to stop messing around. Suppose we tell Karzai that if one screws up, we’ll take out them and their families, bomb their home villages and take out a few Karzai family members for good luck.
Why does this not surprise me?
...and when they come back and kill Americans in a year or two, the media will say this happened on a Republican president’s watch...
Obama wants to appoint them to his administration as decapitation Czars?

That should bring in at least $100 million into the Obama campaign.
Obama orders a billion bullets to deal with
pesky native Americans, and frees America’s enemies
after making THEM citizens — and immune to ObamaCARE.
And Congress is silent as a good Moslem dhimmi.
Neither, it is all a part of his plans. Why people are incessant on taking his actions as those of a man who is crazy, stupid, ignorant and more are delusional in that someone of those traits could have attained the office he now holds.
Those making the assumption of any one of those descriptions or a combination thereof are only fooling themselves and not capable of recognizing the existential threat he poses to our country as long as he is in any position of power.
Seems to be the optimum word used when describing anything obammy.
Soooo, you’re what, one of seven conservatives left in la la land???
Yes, And I’m desperately trying to get a job elsewhere!
