Kerry Defends Bergdahl-For-Taliban Exchange

john-kerryThe five Taliban figures who got out of Guantanamo in exchange for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s release would be taking an “enormous risk” if they return to the battlefield, Secretary of State John Kerry told CNN in an interview that aired Sunday.

“I’m not telling you that they don’t have some ability at some point to go back and get involved (in fighting). But they also have an ability to get killed doing that. ” Kerry said in his first public comments on the controversial prisoner exchange.

Kerry defended the swap and told CNN the former detainees will be monitored closely — and not just by officials in Qatar, where they were flown after being released. He wouldn’t say who else will be watching, but he said the United States is confident the conditions of their release will be honored.

“And if they’re violated, then we have the ability to be able to do things,” he said, warning that the United States would do whatever is necessary to protect Americans “if these guys pick a fight with us in the future, or now, or at any time.”

  1. “I’m not telling you that they don’t have some ability at some point to go back and get involved (in fighting). But they also have an ability to get killed doing that. ” Kerry said in his first public comments on the controversial prisoner exchange.”

    Kerry conveniently omits that these bloodsoaked troglodytes also very much have the ability to terrorize and kill innocents in the name of Jihad.

    Its like saying that, yeah, we’ll leave the leash off the vicious pit bull because there is a possibility it will get run over by a car.

    Kerry’s “logic” is totally illogical.

  2. He still doesn’t get it. “Enormous risk” and “the ability to get killed” is not a deterrent for those beings! The Americans still don’t know with whom they are dealing or “working with”!

  3. We can always kill them with drone strikes. And in any case, five more Taliban adding to the tens of thousands they already have makes no difference whatsoever.

  4. Kerry must be right. These terrorists will surely just want to play things safe, go home and maybe raise some pigs on their farm. No baloney.
