Our country missed an opportunity. As soon as we had our soldier back safely, a drone should have taken out all 5 Taliban dirtbags.
What makes you think a drone didn't take them out; or still won't?
Disagree. Wait until they have a bunch of friends around....then drone their asses.
Maybe not those 5 because we negotiated in good terms faith, but a few guys.
I disagree. We negotiated with Taliban through intermediaries in good faith, and will probably need to in the future. It would not be in our interests to prove untrustworthy. I am confident if Taliban had acted in bad faith, hell would have erupted.
Negotiated in good faith with terrorists who now see us as weak and chanted while they freed our solider?
Do you know they didn't? ;-)
We would have heard from Taliban or Qatar. But we will be tracking them and it may happen in the future.
