Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday called concerns that some of the recently-freed Taliban leaders could resume their violent anti-U.S. campaign “a lot of baloney,” but an intelligence assessment touted by his department just days ago shows that three in ten former Guantanamo Bay detainees are either known or suspected to have returned to “terrorist activities.”
“I just think that’s a lot of baloney, to be truthful with you,” he told CNN’s “State of the Union,” when he was asked about concerns that the five senior Taliban figures freed and flown to Qatar in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could return to the fight and kill Americans again.
“And to whatever degree it may be true, they will wind up putting themselves at the mercy of those people who are very effective, who are there [in Afghanistan], who will deal with those matters.”
