US Furious With Karzai for Releasing Taliban Terrorists, As Palestinian Murderers Are Released at the Request of Kerry

The US military is furious with Afghan President Karzai's planned release of Taliban terrorists. As reported in a New York Times article entitled "Afghans’ Planned Prisoner Releases Anger U.S." (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/01/world/asia/afghans-planned-prisoner-releases-anger-us.html?hp&_r=0) by Matthew Rosenberg:

"Just months after American officials ceded control over all detention operations in Afghanistan, President Hamid Karzai’s government has quietly planned dozens of prisoner releases that American and Afghan officials said on Tuesday would include committed insurgents who had attacked Americans.

. . . .

'These are guys that are tied directly to killing and trying to kill our forces and Afghan forces,' an American military official said. 'This is an issue of deep concern. It is serious.'"

Meanwhile, however, Israel on Monday released Palestinians guilty of murder pursuant to the demand of US Secretary of State John Kerry (see: http://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-published-list-of-palestinian-inmates-to-be-release/).

What's that you said, John? What me worry?
