WASHINGTON (AP) - The Taliban's new top operations officer in southern Afghanistan had been a prisoner at the Guantanamo Bay detention center, the latest example of a freed detainee who took a militant leadership role and a potential complication for the Obama administration's efforts to close the prison. U.S. authorities handed over the detainee to the Afghan government, which in turn released him, according to Pentagon and CIA officials.
Now, we can't let one example like this ruin it for everyone at Gitmo and Obama's promise to close it down. A campaign promise. But wait, there is more, on the night B. Hussein Obama was elected he did state that some of his promises would have to be broken. I knew something was up when he came out of his first high level defense meeting looking like a deer on a freeway during rush hour.
