The Obama administration has taken operational steps to move five Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay as part of a confidence-building measure to further peace talks with the Afghan Taliban a development that comes in advance of a hearing Thursday where senior intelligence officials will testify on national security threats, a senior congressional official told Fox News.
The five detainees were said to be "hand-picked" by the Taliban preparing for the talks.
The Taliban transfer issue will be a significant focus of the hearing on worldwide threats. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said ahead of the hearing that the administrations efforts to talk with the Afghan Taliban smack of desperation.

This should work out well. /s
We can only hope it costs Obama the election
Any doubt that Obama is a muzzie?? If this isn’t treason, I don’t know what is.
What could go wrong? This is the same Admin that brought us “transparency”,fairness, TARP,HARP,Cash for Clunkers,the Chevy Volt, Solyndra, Fast and Furious, a 15 Trillion Dollar tab...
If this isnt treason, I dont know what is.
"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"
--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."
"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."
"What happens next bears watching closely, as does the response of the president, ex-Speaker Pelosi, and others on the left. Encouraged by leftists in the Democratic Party and funded by left-leaning nonprofit organizations and celebrity contributors, Occupy Wall Street may in time morph into something resembling the radical factions of the late 1960s and 1970s."
Don't need no Weatherman to see which way the wind blws.
It should certainly build the Talibans confidence.
We have a good chance that this Muslim will go back into the White Hut for another 4 years.
God help us.
Still helping his brother muslims.
What could possibly go wrong ?
I don't know what faith he has, if any, but I know he is in no way a Christian. It's possible to hate America, hate whites, and hate Jews, without being Muslim. As for treason, that's nothing new from Obama.
This tribe hasn't seen "peace" for 5,000 years.
The Taliban selected the prisoners they want freed. Those are probably the key leaders they need to re-take Afghanistan as soon as we leave. Real good Barry. Way to lead from the rear. Why not just send the five home each with a brand new shoulder launch Javelin and a good supply of rockets.
“The Taliban selected the prisoners they want freed. Those are probably the key leaders they need to re-take Afghanistan as soon as we leave”
Yes, according to the article, the ones they chose are the worst of the worst and were recommended to NEVER be freed.
SO much for THAT recommendation.
Nothing to see here.....move along...
“I don’t know what faith he has, if any, but I know he is in no way a Christian. It’s possible to hate America, hate whites, and hate Jews, without being Muslim. “
Providing aid and comfort to the enemy. As well as the strange news story the other day saying detainee terrorists in GTMO had classified papers in they’re cells?
neat trick since Islam dates only from 642 AD..
