Actually they are saying "Noble" because spelling is important.

I wonder if all the righterds that were apolplectic about Obama releasing five taliban from Gitmo will bother to comment here.

Well the article does say they have no evidence that the prisoners will return to the fight, so easy peasy.

But but Obama gave Iran back their own money so that makes it ok for Trumpy to release 5000 angry terrorists into the Wild.

Nobel. Noble. Same thing. I'll take either one. I've already got the Fifth Avenue Sharpshooter Award, for firing on that guy outside my building...

I mean it's been 20 years almost.

I'm not as afraid of the Senior Tour, and it has to end eventually.

Not that Trump uses any of this type of logic, he just likes terrorists.

"We're getting along very, very well with the Taliban troops to whom Russia pays bounties for killing American soldiers."

Putin is doing Trump a favor by getting Americans killed. It helps Trump fan the flames of terror, from which only Trump can protect us. Fear is the centerpiece of Trump's campaign.

That wouldn't have helped W get re-elected.

I'm sure you recall how giddy he was, and your Republican and Independent Texas neighbors were, for him to be a "Wartime President."

Free them. It's time. How long were they going to hold them anyway? If we can build goodwill with this,why not? Sometimes even the ----------- gets it right.
