Qatar allowing freed Taliban men to move freely in country: Gulf official
YAHOO! News -Reuters ^ | 6-3-2014 | Amena Bakr

Posted on 06/03/2014 9:33:11 AM PDT by servo1969

Qatar has moved five Afghan Taliban prisoners freed in exchange for a U.S. soldier to a residential compound and will let them move freely in the country, a senior Gulf official said on Tuesday, a step likely to be scrutinized by Washington.

U.S. officials have referred to the release of the Islamist militants as a transfer and said they would be subject to certain restrictions in Qatar. One of the officials said that would include a minimum one-year ban on them traveling outside of Qatar as well as monitoring of their activities.

"All five men received medical checks and they now live with their families in an accommodation facility in Doha," the Gulf source, who declined to be identified, told Reuters. "They can move around freely within the country."

Scrutinized by Washington?

Oh, Noes!

You don't think Obama will send them a strongly worded letter, do you?

Jeez. The whole world is laughing at us.

Free to roam Qatar ? How convenient. Our Predator Drones are ALSO free to roam the airspace over Qatar.

Sometimes, a plan just comes together. . . . (evil grin)

Obama was cool with it when the Lockerbie Bomber was released to a hero’s welcome in Libya.

They will be allowed to move freely about the country til they find an area on the border they can slip across and disappear.

The media people, the politicians, the military folk, the CIA, The State Department, all these bastards know what is going on and say nothing to keep their gravy train jobs. The rare few who squeak are smashed by the fascist machine. Ths socialists are fine with the demise of this country and the others are quite willing to look the other way as long as they get their paychecks and perks.
This damn cancer needs to be cut OUT!

0bama is always cool with what he does. Until he decides to do the opposite and then he’s cool with that.

Qatar is hosting the World Cup in 2025. During the summer it should be about 115 degrees in the shade.

2022. But there are recent allegations that they bribed their way to that. So maybe the World Cup will awarded to another country instead? (I won't hold my breath. FIFA is known for corruption.)

I don't know. Actually, there are mulitple stadiums. One weird factoid: because a small country like Qatar doesn't need a lot of big stadiums, after the world cup, most of them will be dis-assembled and given to poor countries!

That’s something that bugs me, why do they pronounce it gutter or cutter? It is Quatar, so Qua-—tar (kwa-tar) should be the pronunciation.
