The Afghan government said on Monday it would release 88 prisoners seen as posing a security threat by the United States, ignoring warnings from Washington ahead of a planned pullout of international forces from the country later this year.
We found no evidence to show these people having hands in terrorist activities, said Abdul Shakoor Dadras, who heads a government-appointed panel reviewing the prisoners' cases.
They have passed long terms in detention without being assessed. So, we decided to free them, he added.
The government made the announcement last week when it released some 650 prisoners.

I hope they tagged them first.
time to get the eff out of there. mission accomplished, Bush set the advanced interrogation into play in time to get the skinny on the tall Saudi prick to eventually kill him (with little help from the Kenyan who didn’t want to do it).
he’s gone. time to leave them to their opium poppies....
Hope the NSA tracking implants work.
Not sure about the Afghans, but the US would have tagged them. That way we can create stats on how many return to the field to fight us again.
Take prisoners only log enough to question them then kill them.
I’m confused. Why are we in Afghanistan? And what are we trying to accomplish there?
President Hillary will fix this.
Thank God it’s not Gitmo...oh wait... what ? never-mind.
