Taliban Statement Boasting ‘Victory’ Regarding Afghan War POW’s Release Raises Serious Questions

When your enemy is praising what you are doing, you know you are doing something very wrong.
Check it out:

Mullah Mohammad Omar, the former Taliban leader of Afghanistan released a statement, according to AFP, describing the negotiated release of 5 Guantanamo Bay detainees as a big win. The statement:

I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the entire Afghan Muslim nation, all the mujahideen and to the families and relatives of the prisoners for this big victory regarding the release of five Taliban leaders from Guantanamo prison.

I thank the government of Qatar, especially its emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad (Al Thani), who made sincere efforts for release of these leaders and for their mediation and for hosting them.

The implication is that the value of the 5 Taliban prisoners is very high.
