    Does anyone actually believe that we just dropped off these 5 terrorist commanders and then gave them a head start to play a fair game of hide and seek??? Of course not! We have been tracking all 5 of them since the second they left our custody. The 5 terrorists we "released" are being tracked by satellites and drones and are leading us to every terrorist stronghold in the region as we speak. Giving these guys back was a great move to strengthen our intelligence and national security interests.
