Judicial Watch: Gitmo terrorists Obama traded for Bowe Bergdahl now ‘reinforce’ Taliban in Qatar

Remember when President Obama from swapped five Gitmo prisoners for a disgraced Army solider, Bowe Bergdahl, who was captured by the Taliban after deserting his post in Afghanistan.

Now Judicial Watch details how that horrible move is even worse than we knew.

Judicial Watch begins:

The Guantanamo terrorists released by Barack Obama in exchange for a U.S. Army deserter have joined the Taliban’s “political” office in Qatar. The move reinforces the terrorist group’s operations, according to the Spanish international news agency that broke the story this week. The five men were incarcerated at the U.S. military prison in southeast Cuba because they held positions of great importance with the terrorist group, including Chief of Staff of the Taliban Army and the Taliban Deputy Minister of Intelligence. One U.S. Senator referred to the freed jihadists as the “Taliban Dream Team.”

“Bergdahl left his post and was held captive by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in Afghanistan from June 2009 until May 2014…. He was released on May 31, 2014 in exchange for the five terrorists, Mullah Muhammad Fazel Mazlum, Mullah Noorullah Noori, Mullah Abdul Haq Wasiq, Mullah Khairullah Khairkhwa and Maulavi Muhammad Nabi Omari. All of them held high-ranking positions with the Taliban before going to Gitmo,” Judicial Watch recounts in their post.

Bergdahl was charged as a “deserter” for his “misbehavior.” Of course, there was “no jail time” for Bowe, a move Trump called a “total disgrace.”

“The five terrorists released were the hardest of the hard-core,” a veteran U.S. Senator wrote in a letter  to the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee after Obama freed them.

“They held positions of great importance within the hard-core anti-American Taliban, including the Chief of Staff of the Taliban Army and the Taliban Deputy Minister of Intelligence. They have American blood on their hands and surely as night follows day they will return to the fight. In effect, we released the “Taliban Dream Team.” The United States is less safe because of these actions.”

Judicial Watch investigated the controversial Bergdahl trade and sued the Department of Defense (DOD) for records involving then Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s determination that the terrorists were “no longer a threat to U.S. national security.” Judicial Watch also litigated to obtain the bilateral Memorandum of Understanding between the U.S. and Qatar relating to the terrorist release.

The article details how those release rejoin Taliban or terrorist factions all over the globe, particularly in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Somalia.
