Breaking: Two Western hostages released in exchange for Three High-Level Taliban Commanders

So let’s see if we are all on the same page on this one?

Two “College Professors, took leave of their former positions and went to teach at the American University of Kabul.

I hold University professors right up with members of congress who look out for themselves and not the people they are teaching.

So we are being led to believe that they didn’t anticipate things going sideways for them at some point while they are there.

How does trading three high-value Taliban fighters match well with releasing the university trolls?

If the CIA believes they have rung all useful information out of them then cutting them loose on the downside would be they join the fight in sand land.

On the upside, they could be hit by a bus or their plane could crash, all acceptable to this reporter.

Of course, we would have have to leave it up to the Trump Administration because we we are not privy to and of the decision-making made in the Oval Office.

Two Western hostages held by the Taliban for more than three years have been released in exchange for three high-level Taliban leaders, a U.S. government source confirmed today.

American Kevin King and Australian Timothy Weeks, professors at the American University of Kabul, were freed in exchange for three Taliban members.

The Western hostages were released Nov. 19 in the Taliban-controlled Zabul Province, a U.S. government source with knowledge of the exchange told the Washington Examiner.

Haqqani and two other Taliban top commanders are scheduled to be released by the Afghan government in an apparent exchange for the release of two captive professors of the American University of Afghanistan three days ago.

They were swapped for three insurgents, including Anas Haqqani, brother to Taliban leader Sirajuddin Haqqani, the source said.

“This was a very delicate process, and it went off well,” the U.S. government source said.

King, 63, and Weeks, 50, were kidnapped at gunpoint on Aug. 7, 2016, near the American University in Kabul, where they worked as teachers.

The men were snatched off the street around 8 p.m. on a Sunday while driving on Dar-ul-Aman Road.

Four assailants wearing uniforms smashed a window to the teachers’ vehicle and pulled them from their car.

Two rescue raids to recover King and Weeks failed in August 2016.

“We had them in our sights, but one rescue was aborted and the second was four hours too late,” the source told the Washington Examiner.

King and Weeks are being taken to a Western medical facility for treatment, the source said.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    Very interesting development. Just have to wonder what the truth is behind this exchange?? As an alternative, why not just snatch a couple of Imam off the streets of America and offer them in exchange.

    The time has arrived for America to wake up to the realities of the War of Terror. This is a Religious War and at stake is the free world as Americans know it. The Muslims live by their oath to the Quran. The Jihad against all non-Muslims is very real and is terrifying to knowledgeable people.

    The Cult of Islam is very clear that their intention is to rule the world and allow only Muslims to live. Islam allows only one religion and is a CULT not a religion. Just exactly why or how America decided to allow these ignorant terrorists into our country needs to be reviewed and all Muslims need to be deported – IMMEDIATELY!

    The Islamic Jihad is very clear and these Muslims intend to kill all non-believers – no exceptions.
