    The politics in Afghanistan (and probably Iraq) are a serious detriment in the war on terror. The US needs to quit trying to fight the PC war. When this prisoner gets to HQ, there is no doubt in my mind they will release him. The Special Forces team would have done well to just kill the bastard.

    killed while trying to escape would be the best story i think, you're 100% right about the local politics messing up the mission for the US

    Only problem with killing them is that any intel you might get from them is gone.
