Obama Admin Quietly Releases Taliban Inmates From Gitmo To Open Peace Talks In Afghanistan

AWR Hawkins | Big Peace | Without an official announcement or any publicity, the Obama administration released five members of the Taliban from Gitmo in order to open peace talks in Afghanistan.

Ynetnews.com reports that "a top U.S. official said the prisoners were released under the condition that they will not engage in any violent activity." The terror activity of those released is not in question.

Rather, their release is intended as a gesture to get peace talks rolling between the U.S., Afghanistan, and the Taliban.
