COL (Join to see), seems like we've heard this song before, sir. Four more released with no strings attached (at least that we know of) ... Four more to get back into the fight. Seems that President Obama wants to close the GTMO detention center before he leaves office, so he'll unload these guys anyway he can (my personal opinion). 132 more to go.

I have strong feelings in regards to these prisoners being released especially since they won't be detained further in Afghanistan.

I have had a personal experience of a terrorist rejoining the fight in Iraq. Back in 2008, I was deployed to the Air Force Theatre Hospital in Balad. One double trauma that came in was an Iraqi (who was blindfolded) and a U.S Soldier. The Soldier had been shot by the Iraqi. The Iraqi was missing 2 fingers that had already healed (from a previous injury) in addition to his other injuries. One of the docs there, recognized the man with the 2 fingers that were lost from 2007 when he was deployed the last time. They apparently had released that Iraqi in 2007 after being treated and he had rejoined the fight once again causing injury and death to as many Americans as he could. No doubt those four Afghans are going to do the same thing.

Disclaimer: I don't know for sure that it was the same man, it was hearsay by the doctor not firsthand knowledge.
