Remember the 5 GITMO terrorists Obama traded for Bergdahl? They’re back…

Remember the five GITMO terrorists that Obama traded to get Bergdahl back from the Taliban?

Just as predicted, they are back with the Taliban:

MILITARY TIMES – Five members of the Afghan Taliban who were freed from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay in exchange for captured American Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl have joined the insurgent group’s political office in Qatar, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said Tuesday.

They will now be among Taliban representatives negotiating for peace in Afghanistan, a sign some negotiators in Kabul say indicates the Taliban’s desire for a peace pact.



It’s bad enough they are back with them. What’s worse is what they bring back with them:

Others fear the five, all of whom were close to the insurgent group’s founder and hard-line leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, bring with them the same ultra-conservative interpretation of Islam that characterized the group’s five-year rule that ended in 2001 with the U.S.-led invasion.

“The Taliban are bringing back their old generation, which means the Taliban have not changed their thinking or their leadership,” said Haroun Mir, political analyst in the Afghan capital. “What we are more worried about is if tomorrow the Taliban say ‘we are ready to negotiate,’ who will represent Kabul? That is the big challenge because the government is so divided, not just ideologically but on ethnic lines.”

HURRAY! We got Bergdahl back and Afghanistan got its old-school fundamentalist Taliban jihadis back who can help facilitate another terrorist attack on American soil. WIN WIN!!

Great job Obama, great job.

Ugh.
