Diana West on ‘Catch and release’ policy in Afghanistan.

Add this to the piece we republished on the policy towards Somali pirates even caught with booty, weapons and slaves.

This is the beginning of the article. Please click here to Diana West’s webpage to read it all.

Recon Marine Cpl. Todd Love (above) got a hero’s welcome in his hometown of Acworth, Georgia this week. Love lost both legs and his left arm in an IED explosion in Afghanistan a few months ago. The Washington Examiner story below by Sara Carter tells us that even if US  forces had photographed the bomber in the act and captured him with bomb traces on his hands, they would then have had to feed him, clothe him … and let him go.

This is another Afghanistan scandal that should get Congress pounding tables and demanding answers from the Pentagon and the White House. It should get readers doing the same. After all, we pay $350 million a day for this.

Carter writes:

Several Taliban detainees who had been captured in February after being observed placing bombs in the culverts of roads used by civilians and military convoys near Kandahar were fed, given medical treatment, then released by American troops frustrated by a policy they say is forcing them to kick loose enemies who are trying to kill them.

  1. IT sickens me that over and over Political Correctness, and insane, so-called rules of engagement are getting our troops killed, maimed, dismembered, and ruined for life. The US should never be engaged in this ludicrous program of ‘nation building’ which is nothing more than a piggy bank for the ‘military industrial complex’. The sole object of the mission in Afghanistan should be to eliminate as many of the Taliban or others showing no softness. We will never get these people to like us ever but they can be made to fear and respect us.

  2. BTW it has been brought to my attention that the regime of our ‘Dear Leader’ BHO has disbanded the interrogation sites run by the CIA and since he has been in office not one high value terrorist has been captured and question.

  3. When the Canadians forces learned that their detainee transfer problem was causing problems back home ..(and would result in their hands being tied..) it became fairly self evident amongst observers that the number of successful surrenders by Taliban forces dramatically decreased. In other words no prisoner, no problem..
