No U.S. oversight for released Taliban leaders
June 6, 2014
A source tells Reuters that the five Taliban prisoners released from Guantanamo in exchange for former prisoner of war Bowe Bergdahl can travel around Qatar freely and will have no oversight by U.S. officials. Reports state that the men are not being treated as prisoners. Since the Taliban maintain an office in Qatar the former terrorist leaders could be supporting operations even before they are allowed to leave the country in a year.


Karzai expels U.S. special operations from Afghan province

Feb. 26, 2013
Following allegations that U.S. special operations forces have captured, tortured, and killed Afghan citizens, Afghan president Hamid Karzai has ordered U.S. special forces out of Wardak Province. An Afghan government spokesman said that the allegations targeted Afghan citizens working with U.S. special operations, but all international special operations have been halted in Wardak, which is considered to be the gateway to Kabul.


U.S. ambassador killed in Libya

Sept. 12, 2012
On the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, a heavily-armed group of Islamists assaulted the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, killing four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. At least one consulate building was looted and burned down. Muslim protestors also climbed the wall surrounding the U.S. Embassy in Egypt, capturing and destroying the American flag. An Islamic flag, similar to al Qaeda’s, reading “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet” was raised in its place.


Iran using Iraqi airspace to supply Syrian military

Sept. 5, 2012
Iran is using an Iraqi air corridor to ferry military supplies to the Syrian government. The U.S. pressured the Iraqi government to shut down such flights through their airspace earlier this year, but flights resumed in July. In addition to the flights, Iran reportedly has provided Syria with a cargo plane while Iranian operatives train Syrian military and paramilitary forces. Iraqi Shiite militia are also said to be headed to Syria to support the government. The U.S. military relinquished control of Iraqi airspace in October, 2011 and all troops and equipment were withdrawn in December, leaving Iraq without an air force until September, 2014 at the earliest.
