US Says Freeing Prisoners a Security Risk – in Afghanistan

...but not for Israel.

Newly released terrorists are welcomed in Ramallah, Sunday, Dec. 18, 2011, after Israel released them in the swap with Hamas which brought home Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit after being held captive for five years.

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.

  1. “do as I say not as I do”- interesting-big O is a big fool and much of the world knows it-it’s a real shame because he really could have made a difference if he was serious.

  2. Hillel Akiba says:

    So why is the US asking Israel to do the same

  3. Dont make others do what you yourself not want to do, …

  4. Jonathan weisman says:

    Hypocrisy! ! By the way, is Jonathan Pollard a “security risk”??

  5. Alan Kardon says:

    Anyone see this on TV or other media. I haven't seen it. I guess they still have their heads up Barack Hussein's butt.

  6. Why does Israel listen to the muslim brotherhood leader obama, and the traitor kerry? If the death penalty was carried out for captured murdering terrorists, there would be a huge drop in terrorist acts. The terrorists know that they will eventually be released before their sentences are served, so they carry on commiting the appalling acts. HANG THEM ISRAEL, they deserve nothing less, and the families of the victims would feel a sense of justice.

  7. Gil Gilman says:

    Hypocrisy abounds…

  8. Morris Gavant says:

    Another double standard for the Jews?

  9. Florence Kerstein Sutker says:

    It Is time Israel leaders get tough and react to all of the double-standard requests put upon them. They also need to counteract the negative and erroneous statements made against them by known enemies and so-called allies including America. We have to tout our numerous achievements and let the world know we are an asset to the world given our contributions Jews have made in the fields of medicine, science, business, technology, and charity, etc.
    We have to blow our own horn, if you will. Keeping silent does no good because the ugly and hateful people that want to gas and bury the Jews only get stronger and louder because they think we Jews are cowards. Didn't we learn anything from the demise of 6 million?

  10. Bobby Lo says:

    Hag them and their leader from the tallest tree…
