One of the five senior Taliban leaders transferred to Qatar in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl played a key role in al Qaeda's plans leading up to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Mohammad Fazl, who served as the Taliban's army chief of staff and deputy defense minister prior to his detention at Guantánamo, did not have a hand in planning the actual 9/11 hijackings. Along with a notorious al Qaeda leader, however, Fazl did help coordinate a military offensive against the enemies of the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan the day before. And Osama bin Laden viewed that Sept. 10 offensive as an essential part of al Qaeda's 9/11 plot.
The 9/11 Commission found that the hijackings in the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, were the culmination of al Qaeda's three-step plan. First, on Sept. 9, 2001, al Qaeda assassinated Northern Alliance commander Ahmed Shah Massoud in a suicide bombing. Massoud's death was a major gift to the Taliban because he was their chief rival and still controlled parts of the country. The assassination was also intended to weaken opposition to the Taliban and al Qaeda within Afghanistan before the United States could plan its retaliation for the most devastating terrorist attack in history. The Northern Alliance did, in fact, play a role in America's response.
The following day, Sept. 10, al Qaeda and the Taliban took their second step. A "delayed Taliban offensive against the Northern Alliance was apparently coordinated to begin as soon as [Massoud] was killed," the 9/11 Commission found.
Fazl and one of bin Laden's chief lieutenants played key roles in this setup for 9/11. . .

Well, color me shocked :0
Friends of Obama.
Friends of the democrat party.
More to come.
In Obamanation, Taliban Murderers can do no wrong, and crybaby Speaker Boehner refuses to actually do anything about it.
The Taliban is in the White House.
So...? Our Muslim president is brother to all Muslims. Have you heard of the Muslim Brotherhood?
The notion Obama did NOT know this prior to the swap is simply NOT plausible:
That means he did a deserter-for-9/11 swap.
Anyone doubt that Bengazi was a swap gone wrong ?
THIS MAN WILL DO **ANYTHING**.
I remember Ahmed Shah Massoud very well ; The Lion of the Panjshir (valley) The one who repeatedly held off the full might of the Russians , for years . Defeated many attempts on the Panjshir , dealt with the Soviet AF , and a darling of the CIA . I used to read about him in Soldier of Fortune magazine all the time . And after the Soviets left he was the only one in all of AFG that stood up to the taliban pussies . Al Qaeda killed him , with 2 operatives posing as cameraman and reporter from some Arab news service . The camera was a bomb . Right before 9/11 , I remember it well .
We cannot let these Taliban pricks win . It’s better to conduct regime change here at home and prosecute that fight , than to just let it go down the hole . Like Iraq
Massoud killing ping
Terrorist swap ping.
I read alot abt this man. From what i read he was pretty decent. They assassinated him.
This whole transaction was financed by the Sunni oil states.
Whenever the White House pushes a policy that defies all logic—rejection of the Keystone pipeline project, for example—it is because the Gulf oil states are transferring cash into DNC coffers.
