Afghan Taliban members freed from prison, rejoin insurgency

Peace talks with the Taliban are not exactly rolling along, and the past seven days have offered little new hope. A Pakistani intelligence official says at least half the Afghan Taliban members recently freed from his country’s prisons have rejoined the insurgency.

In a much more embarrassing admission, U.S. military officials in Kabul say they miscalculated stats from last year that showed Taliban attacks were actually in steep decline; in truth, there was no change at all. The Pentagon attributed the mistake to a “clerical error.” If only figuring out the Taliban was so simple.
