    The Obama administration reportedly has released a prisoner from the Guantanamo Bay detention camp accused of attacking U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

    According to Reuters, the administration released Mohammed Jawad to his home in Afghanistan.

    Jawad had been accused of throwing a grenade in 2002 that injured two U.S. soldiers and their interpreter in Kabul. He has returned to his family, according to his lawyer.

    Kirk Lippold, former USS Cole commander and fellow at Military Families United, criticized the decision in a statement Monday, calling it part of a "sadly familiar pattern."

    "No coherent policy in the war on terror. No comprehensive plan in place to deal with the future of Guantanamo Bay detainees. No accountability for terrorists who harm our brave fighting forces," he said.

    I'm guessing they gave him a very firm tongue lashing and he promised to behave himself. :eek:

    What is even my hypocritical is the consternation this administration had for the Lockerbie Bomber being released.

    They need to just stuff a GPS device up someone's rear and wait for them to lead a missile right back to the nest.

    And don't even make it a small one either.
