Biden Releases Who From Prison?

This is not good.

Thanks to the Biden Administration and the Defense Department an Afghan prisoner who was held at Guantanamo Bay for around 15 years has just been released.

According to the Washington Examiner, Asadullah Haroon al Afghani commonly known as “Gul” was released from Guantanamo Bay and the Taliban’s deputy culture and information minister said that he was one of the last two Afghan prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay.

Asadullah Haroon al Afghani left Guantanamo Bay on Thursday and was sent to Qatar via a U.S. Air Force plane before he was handed back off to the Taliban Government in Doha.

Haroon was apprehended in 2007 after the United States accused him of being the top commander of the Hezb-e-Islami militia.

Human rights group Reprieve defended Haroon’s release and said, “Asadullah has suffered severe physical and psychological torture during his detention, including being beaten, hung by his wrists, deprived of food and water, and prevented from praying. He has been subjected to sleep deprivation, extreme cold temperatures and solitary confinement.”

Many Americans believe it wasn’t a wise idea for President Biden and the Defense Department to release someone like Haroon back into the public.
