It was the deal of the century: We got our beloved deserter back, and we only had to release five high-value Taliban prisoners from Gitmo. No wonder Obama was so proud…
Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim indeed.
But it gets even better! Barbara Starr, CNN:
The U.S. military and intelligence community now suspect that one of the five Taliban detainees released from Guantanamo Bay in return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in May of last year has attempted to return to militant activity from his current location in Qatar by making contact with suspected Taliban associates in Afghanistan, multiple officials tell CNN…
The officials would not say which of the five men is suspected. But an ongoing U.S. intelligence program to secretly intercept and monitor all of their communications in Qatar turned up evidence in recent months that one of them has “reached out” to try to encourage militant activity, one official said.
You do realize what this means: Four out of those five Taliban freedom-fighters haven’t returned to battle yet! That’s 80%. That’s a B-. Not bad, right?
Another big win for the Smartest President Ever.
