We all know that they’ll return to the jihad, so why did Obamawitz (Jewish in his Soul) release them?
Pentagon returns four Guantanamo detainees to Afghanistan
NOW PLAYINGFour more prisoners transferred out of Gitmo
The Pentagon said Saturday it has released four Afghan detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention center to their home country, President Obama’s most recent effort to reduce the detainee population toward his goal of closing the facility.
They will be given to the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, reducing the number of Guantanamo detainees to 132, including eight Afghans.
The four were released after the interagency Guantanamo Review Task Force conducted a comprehensive review, including whether they were a security risk, as directed by the president’s Jan. 22, 2009, executive order.
U.S. officials said they were cleared as a kind of reconciliation and an indication of improved U.S.-Afghan relations and that the exchange is a sign of their confidence in new Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.
There is no requirement that the Afghan government further detain the men, identified as Mohammed Zahir, Shawali Khan, Abdul Ghani and Khi Ali Gul.
The facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was opened in the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks.
Administration officials, speaking on a condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, say more transfers are expected in the coming weeks.
