Oh wow! 'They are genocidal terrorists, but it's ok to rekease them!'

"... To be sure, the five Taliban are still enemies of the U.S. They're bad men: Two of them have been implicated in massacres of Shiites, for instance. Also, it's an awkward complication that some of Bergdahl's fellow soldiers apparently suspect him of desertion -- hardly the ideal case for ensuring "no man is left behind." Nonetheless, since the Taliban isn't going to be crushed, it will have to be talked to. Scruples about good and bad negotiating partners must yield to that reality...."
