I just happened across this story at CNN today, “Officials: Detainee swapped for Bergdahl suspected of militant activities.”
If it wasn’t so serious it would be comical. MSM actually thinks this is a shock?
Kudos for Barbara Starr and Jake Tapper for reporting on this. But is anyone other than Main Stream Media elitists stunned at the revelation that very bad Taliban leaders, once released from Gitmo, return to their calling of terrorism?
And where do they get the statistics that claim 12 – 17% of released Gitmo detainees return to terrorist activities? Were the other 83 – 88% smitten with love and peace and affection for infidels after their stay at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp complete with prayer rugs and halal food?
Barbara Starr writes:
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, CNN has learned exclusively.
The development has led to an ongoing debate inside the administration about whether there is a new threat from this man, and potentially the other four.
