US Says Freeing Prisoners a Security Risk – in Afghanistan

...but not for Israel.

The United States, which muscled Israel into freeing dozens of terrorists who murdered Jews, thinks that releasing prisoners is a security risk if they are in an Afghan jail.

“The Afghan Review Board has exceeded its mandate and ordered the release of a number of dangerous individuals who are legitimate threats and for whom there is strong evidence supporting prosecution or further investigation,” said Colonel Dave Lapan, a spokesman for American forces in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan plans to release 88 prisoners from the Bagram jail, whose control recently was transferred from the United States to Afghan officials.

American officials said that 35 of the prisoners were directly responsible for killing or wounding Afghan civilians and soldiers, and that at least 25 of them were involved in attacks on American and coalition troops.

In Israel, hundreds of prisoners, freed before their terms for murder expired and many of them sentenced to multiple life terms in prison, have returned to terror after their being released and have killed more than 120 Israeli soldiers and civilians.

The American government does not consider freeing them to be a security risk because keeping them in jail would mean that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry cannot keep busy muscling Israel and the Palestinian Authority into agreeing to sign a piece of paper for President Barack Obama, without which there would be a severe security risk for the power of the U.S. State Dept.
