The five Afghans released were Mullah Mohammed Fazi (former Taliban Deputy Minister), Abdul Haq Wasiq (former Taliban Deputy Minister of Intelligence), Khairulla Khairkhwa (former Taliban Governor of Herat), Mullah Norullah Noori (Personal associate of Osama bin Laden), and Mohammed Nabi Omari. All five of these men are listed by the Defense Department as high risk, i.e. "Likely to pose a threat to the U.S., its interest, and allies."
In releasing these five terrorists, Obama violated a law he himself signed barely six months ago that requires the notification of Congress thirty days before any Guantanamo detainees are released. That this President would recklessly break the law or thumb his nose at the Congress of the United States should surprise no one. But that he would deliberately break a long tradition of not encouraging terrorism by negotiating with terrorists, and in so doing promote kidnapping as a means of achieving his goal of closing Guantanamo is, in a Commander-in-chief, nothing short of treason.
Obama is a Muslim, and he is doing everything in his power to help the Muslim Taliban. He's told them to the day exactly when he's pulling American troops out of Afghanistan, and now he has returned to them five of their major officers. And just last week he told them the name of the Station Chief at the American embassy in Kabul.
Now, for those of you who don't know what a Station Chief is, he is arguably the most important man in an embassy. Very few people in an embassy know who their Station Chief is, and they are not supposed to know. He always has a cover job, but his real job is spying. He knows how to get information. He knows who can be trusted and who can't. And he knows things about the host country for which he could be killed.
So what Obama did was tell the Taliban who our spymaster is in the American embassy in Kabul. In doing so, he endangered the man's life and the lives of his family. But that was not his purpose. His purpose was to give aid to his Muslim brethren – who happen to be enemies of the United States – and that is treason.
