Having a Get Out of Jail FREE card in the game of Monopoly was always a great thing to have. What do you think of giving the same sort of break to a acknowledged terrorist who waged war on you in the past? Also note that this terrorist is pledged to always continue the fight and kill you. Lying is not an issue as it is acceptable to his morals. So why the do gooder pledge? It is all smoke and mirrors. John Kerry can point to the pledge and say he shouldn’t do that when the pledge is broken. The pledge will be broken. Read all about it in this article.

Acceptance of Mistakes, Credible Desire to Not Repeat Them Gets Taliban Terrorist Out of Gitmo.
In the frantic effort to close the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo the Obama administration keeps freeing the world’s most dangerous terrorists, this month a Taliban soldier who served as Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard. The Yemeni, Majid Mahmud Abdu Ahmed, will be released to an Arabic-speaking country with “appropriate security assurances” and “reintegration support,” according to the Periodic Review Board (PRB) created by the president to clear out the compound at the U.S. military base in southeast Cuba.
“The Periodic Review Board, by consensus, determined that continued law of war detention of the detainee is no longer necessary to protect against a continuing significant threat to the security of the United States,” the board’s Unclassified Summary of Final Determination states. “In making this determination, the Board noted the detainee’s relative candor in discussing his time in Afghanistan, acceptance of the mistakes he made, and a credible desire to not repeat those mistakes. Further, the board considered the detainee’s age when he went to Afghanistan and having matured since entering detention, the detainee’s compliance while in detention at Guantanamo, and that the detainee has taken opportunities to educate himself while at Guantanamo.”
Ahmed’s Department of Defense (DOD) profile says that he’s a high risk detainee likely to pose a threat to the U.S., its interests and allies and that he’s of high intelligence value. “Detainee is a member of al-Qaida and a bodyguard for Usama Bin Laden (UBL),” the DOD profile says.
