Oh, I thought it was going to be the Onion, but turns out just New York Post. Equally reliable. Less funny.

Almost as funny as trading 5 Taliban generals for a deserter. LMAO

I saw this headline in the grocery store today. I put little stock in it. NY Post writers have written some of the best headlines in the biz, though (Headless Body Found in Topless Bar comes to mind).

I have mixed feelings about this. I said years ago that taking these people into US custody was a mistake. Should have just let the Northern Alliance kill them. Once the US did take them into custody, it becamse inevitable that eventually we'd have to start letting them go. So part of me thinks that the Obama admin is stuck with a mess they didn't create.

That said, I don't like the idea of portraying these guys as reformed or non-threats. If you want to let them go because we can't legally hold them, fine. But there is no reason to lie about who and what they are.
