There have supposedly been incidents in the past where we have relied on other countries to restrict and keep watch on threats to the U.S. and these threats traveled out of said country multiple times before being caught....

But, I can bet that those Taliban members that met with U.S. special forces during the trade-off are being watched carefully.
I don't know of any other country we could trust with terrorists we set free. Why does our govt. think these countries will help us?

I'd take a guess that since we give so much foreign aid that we expect something in return. Silly us...

Some very disturbing reports from all sides on this one. We might have been better off leaving him there. I don't care about who to blame (do any of us really know!), but I feel that getting promoted while being a POW is insane. We might as well promote women faster in the military because they're women.....oh wait....we already do that.
