Afghan prisoner eleased from GitmoThe Guantanamo Bay Periodic Review Board approved the release of an Afghan man 14 years after his initial apprehension.

The board, which carries out parole hearings for prisoners of the detention camp, released a three-paragraph statement with some details about the release of the man named Obaidullah.

"The Periodic Review Board, by consensus, determined that continued law of war detention of the detainee does not remain necessary to protect against continuing significant threat to the security of the United States," the statement read. "The Board found that the risk of the detainee presents can be adequately mitigated."

Obaidullah has "not expressed any intent to re-engage in terrorist activities," and "has not espoused any anti-US sentiment that would indicate he views the US as his enemy," since his apprehension in 2002.

TVNL Comment:  We invade their country.  Then fight back.  We imprison and torture them for acts or even intentions against the invaders of THEIR country, Someone please explain that to me.  Oh, yes... it's American Exceptionalism.
