The USA is willing to exchange Guantanamo prisoners for missing military men
Guerrillas have captured five more American military men in Afghanistan. This is the extension of the list of 40 American soldiers, who have been missing for more than a year now. This information was published in the Pakistani newspaper Frontier Post, with reference to the so-called Afghan resources.
The mentioned newspaper did not inform, where and when those five American military men disappeared. The newspaper reported that the unit of soldiers that disappeared in late September of the year 2001, consisted of commando soldiers, Afghan interpreters and guides. The unit was conducting a secret operation against the Taliban movement and Al-Qaida groups, somewhere deep in Afghanistan.
Despite searching operations with the use of up-to-date technology, including space intelligence, huge bribes for Afghan commanders, it was not possible to find any traces of the missing military men. America’s efforts to conduct negotiations regarding a possible exchange of Guantanamo captives yielded no results either.
The information of the newspaper Frontier Post concerning the exchange of American soldiers for the prisoners of the Guantanamo base, was indirectly confirmed with another piece of information. The Americans released four prisoners (three Afghan men and one Pakistani national) at the end of October. It was a big surprise for everyone. The official wording of the release was as follows: the prisoners were not posing threat anymore.
By the way, a piece of news arrived from Pakistan today, which is not likely to be good news for the Americans. The leaders of the alliance of six religious parties of Pakistan are intended to prohibit further operations to search Al-Qaida terrorists in the north-west border province of the country. The alliance is going to prohibit any kind of operations with the participation of American FBI agents there. Furthermore, religious parties want to stop rendering Pakistani airbases to foreigners for conducting military operations in Afghanistan.
