Awesome: Afghanistan Begins Releasing Captured Jihadists
Exactly how is our little project of state-building in Afghanistan going? Not good:
The US government has condemned an ordered release of the first wave of 88 prisoners from Bagram prison, saying that more than 40 per cent of the prisoners who are set to go were involved in direct attacks against the US and Afghan forces.Michelle has more.
The Afghan Review Board (ARB), led by Abdul Shakoor Dadras, has ordered the release of the first 37 of 88 from Bagram, which the US military categorised them as “dangerous”.
As I've come to realize over the past 10 years of blogging, there's not much we can do to improve the sh*thole that is Afghanistan. The best strategy moving forward is to put them on notice that should they ever allow the Taliban to come back to power that we will not hesitate to wipe the country from the face of the Earth. And yes, I do mean that literally.
