    Catch-and-release of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan angers troops

    By: Sara A. Carter 12/06/10 8:05 PM
    National security correspondent


    More than 500 suspected Taliban fighters detained by U.S. forces have been released from custody at the urging of Afghan government officials, angering both American troops and some Afghans who oppose the policy on the grounds that many of those released return to the battlefield to kill NATO soldiers and Afghan civilians.

    And those numbers understate the problem, military officials say. They do not include suspected Taliban fighters held in small combat outposts or other forward operating bases throughout the region who are released before they ever become part of the official detainee population.

    Agreed...and from the other over 100 countries that the United States has troops stationed in as well.
