(by Rick Wells, GOP The Daily Dose) -- Two senior members of the notorious mafia-style Afghan terrorist organization, the Haqqani Network, recently visited the Obama Gitmo terrorists at their new temporary home in Qatar.
Catherine Herridge reports that the Taliban has issued a statement saying that two of their members, Abdul Rasheed Omari and Anas Haqqani, were recently arrested by the Afghan government. They were apprehended as they made their way back from a week-long visit with the “Taliban Dream Team” members.
The Taliban are upset that the supposed assurances received by the Gitmo Five which granted the two safe passage were in their opinion, violated.
Herridge reports that a former Bush administration official, Charles Stimson, who heads the Heritage National Security Law Program, believes that this visit was likely only one of many and that the indications are, in his view, that the five have already become actively reengaged in the terrorist operation.
He said, “I would expect that not only those two guys talked to the Taliban Five, but others have already talked to them and they’ve been in constant communications, preparing for their eventual return.”
Herridge also notes that it is significant that, while there has been no confirmation of the Taliban accounts of the events, there has also been no denial issued by the U.S. government.
