And we let these guys go free?!?!!?

The government of Pakistan has released 17 men who were imprisoned in Lahore for some months after being freed from Guantanamo Bay:

The men were apparently released (from GITMO) on the theory that they were innocent, but all six who were interviewed by the Associated Press acknowledged that "they were arrested in Afghanistan after going there to fight the U.S.-led coalition that ousted the hard-line Taliban regime in late 2001 for harboring Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaida network." One said, "If I get a chance to fight jihad again, I will definitely go. I will not miss it." Keep that in mind next time you read about those poor innocents who have been released from Guantanamo Bay because they had no connection to terrorism.
