You can't make this stuff up! On the same day the press reports on the Wiki Leaks secret Guantanamo prisoner files (which sounds like sadistic Larry, Curly, and Mo's are running the prison), the Afghans lose 1,050 prisoners! So, the U.S. decides a prisoner can be repatriated back to Afghanistan safely and voila! they're out. Gee, think there was collusion among the guards? In this War on Terror, it's becoming obvious that the U.S. is more incompetent than these ragtag Arab men.

what a waste of the troops lives and time.america needs to wake up!!!!!!!!!!

Monday April 25, 2011, 7:31 pm
Yes, of COURSE it was an inside job: from the assistant-warden on down (if not the WARDEN himself!)!

This expensive, MISGUIDED adventure in Af/Pak was ALWAYS a false construct by Shrub & Co., now perpetuated by my MISGUIDED President Obama!

Propping up FAIL(ING) states is NEVER our job!

We need to pull out of W Asia & Iraq ASAP!

NATO forces only controls Kabul other places in Afghanistan are not in their control they are to scared to go out of Kabul limits believe me moment they step out of then you suffer casualties so my sincere advise is to with draw you forces as you have already lost the war it has been over TEN years now what is you achievement please ask your Govt

US army is still in Afghanistan GUARDING American Interests(OIL). The
Taliban are branded as insurgents, so the war will be acceptable to
The american people. War was started to arrest OSAMA Bin Ladin!!!
So where is he ??? , after 8years of this WAR, we don't hear even the mention
Of Osama!!!. Suddenly the Talibans are the Enemies!!! How come the Taliban
are NOW invited to
Participate at the negotoiating table ??? Its all a game to US, to
Use whatever means it can, to snatch and STEAL other countries

The Elite Few get Richer while, YOUR good soldiers and innocent
Afghani men, women and Children DIE daily, to Fulfil the
GREED, of the Power Hungry, Evil, Elements in the American Government.

Mary P. I wonder how your life would be as a woman under the Taliban. Firstly you would not be sending your elucidating well researched comments as you would be denied education and more than likely, have no access to a computer (A relief to some of us) Outside of your house you would view the world through a slit of gauze along with your other 3 fellow wives as you compare the finer points of your last domestic beating. I could go on but maybe you are already enjoying part of this liberated picture already.

Bernard, don't go painting ALL women, under Taliban Rule, with
The same brush, due to all the lies and false information,
YOU hear on your mainstream media.

I have female Afghani relatives, who are well educated; who are the ONLY
Wives of their husbands; who have never been beaten; and who
Cover themselves out of their OWN choice!!! Women who are loved,
Honoured and respected by their husbands, which FYI, ISLAM teaches..

America, always have to have an enemy to justify all their
Numerous Wars(OIL) on other Countries; Murdering their Innocent citizens.
At lesst, Under the Taliban rule, people still had a chance of a LIFE; which
Have been mercilessly taken away, due to the american invasio

I wonder if YOU have NEVER heard
Of WOMEN Abuse, in America and other parts of the world!!! and
MARRIED MEN having couple of MISTRESSES!!! Ever wondered
How their wives must be feel about their Adultrous husbands???
