Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, Barack Obama comes back to haunt America…on Halloween of all days.
Obama, famous for many blunders but also finally getting pre-existing conditions covered, stunned the world when he made the ridiculous trade for the traitor Bergdahl. Trump and many others bashed this 5 terrorists for one traitor trade but Obama dug in and followed through with it. Now the chickens are coming home to roost. From The 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.
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.”
The five are really bad dudes, here’s what we know. Mohammed Fazl oversaw the deaths of thousands of minority Shiites in 2000. Khairullah Khairkhwa was bosom buddies with both Taliban founder Mullah Omar and Osama bin Laden. The other three, Abdul Haq Wasiq, Mullah Norullah Nori, Mohammad Nabi Omari, were close to Omar and were leaders in Gitmo.
Thank’s Obama. Good job.
