Good News: One of Obama's GITMO Five Releases Helped With Lead-Up to 9/11

Again, what could possibly go wrong with the recent release of five high-level Taliban commanders in exchange for Sgt. Private Bowe Bergdahl? Just about everything.

Writing in the Weekly Standard, Foundation for the Defense of Democracies Senior Fellow Thomas Joscelyn writes that the "Taliban 5" are worse "than we've heard." In fact one of them, Mohammad Fazl, played a key roll in the lead-up to the 2001 9/11 terror attacks.

  1. I can hardly wait until we hear Obama did not know anything about the release until he heard it on the news like the rest of the country.


  2. Let's quote from the article>:
    "Mohammad Fazl, who served as the Taliban’s army chief of staff and deputy defense minister prior to his detention at Guantánamo, did not have a hand in planning the actual 9/11 hijackings. "
    Read that part again: DID NOT HAVE A HAND IN PLANNING THE ACTUAL 9/11 HIJACKINGS. The Drudge headline is merely added hysteria. This guy supposedly killed an Afghan leader, which, supposedly, bin Laden "regarded" as part of the 9/11 plan.
    No contact between them whatsoever, but somehow, this was part of the plan.....

    1. Thanks. I didn't see the Drudge piece as I posted the Townhall synopsis of the Weekly Standard's one.
