    (If true, total complete meshugenah! The man is totally insane and wholly oblivious to history. Apparently this would be the icing on the cake for Obama, after cutting and running from Iraq, transferring the Gitmo detainees to Taliban custody is promises kept.
    This is exactly why after WWII ended, the Allies insisted on the Nuremburg trials, because when WWI ended the Western Allies left the handling of the German War Crimes to the Weimar Republic, and the Weimar Republic simply didn't. The world got WWII instead.
    Obama has to go, NOW! Don't worry Obamabots, MTV, VH1 and Nickolodian will still support him despite the sound of many more jetliners crashing into major American structures)

    "Reuters— After 10 months of secret dialogue with Afghanistan’s Taliban insurgents, senior U.S. officials say the talks have reached a critical juncture and they will soon know whether a breakthrough is possible, leading to peace talks whose ultimate goal is to end the Afghan war.

    As part of the accelerating, high-stakes diplomacy, Reuters has learned, the United States is considering the transfer of an unspecified number of Taliban prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay military prison into Afghan government custody.

    It has asked representatives of the Taliban to match that confidence-building measure with some of their own. Those could include a denunciation of international terrorism and a public willingness to enter formal political talks with the government headed by Afghan President Hamid Karzai."

    The President should have all options available on the table in negotiating. That said, he better have a damn good reason before he releases them.

    The Treaty of Versaille remains one of the biggest reasons for WWII.

    That is one of Woodrow Wilson's biggest, of many, blunders. The fact is there are a number of things the US and especially the Brits could have dont to avoid war WW2.

    Pride and a lack of forgiveness caused WW2. And it may cause WW3 someday too.

    I wouldn't call it Wilson's blunder, as I don't believe he was in favor of heavy-handed reparations, but had to acquiesce to his allies or possibly lose his pet project, The League of Nations.

    As soon as they give those Taliban prisoners back to Taliban or Afghan custody they will be re-activated, debriefed and sent back into the field to fight against us, any "negociations" with the Taliban are a joke and won't yield any successful results for us.

    I think the Taliban will reward the prisoners and celebrate the stupidity, or just compliance, of Obama.

    Obama has never taken sides, though it would be nice if he had a modicum of loyalty to the country he was elected to represent.

    There is NO damn good reason. This is nuts. If he does this we are just asking for a repeat of 9/11. Insanity.
