That didn’t take long.

One of the five Taliban leaders freed from Guantanamo Bay in return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl‘s release has pledged to return to fight Americans in Afghanistan, according to a fellow militant and a relative.

“After arriving in Qatar, Noorullah Noori kept insisting he would go to Afghanistan and fight American forces there,” a Taliban commander told NBC News via telephone from Afghanistan.

Noori pushed to return to Afghanistan after learning that the U.S. had provided written assurances that no country would arrest any of the five freed for a year as long as they lived peacefully, one of his relatives told NBC News by telephone from Afghanistan.

Under the terms of the deal, the former commanders would remain under the control of the government of Qatar for one year and be subject to “restrictions on their movement and activities,” a senior U.S. official has told NBC News –- including a one-year travel ban. A diplomatic source later told NBC News that their movements within the Arab emirate are not restricted.

And we can totally trust Qatar on this. Totally. Every bit as much as we can trust the idiots who struck this deal.

when the Arabs wanted to humiliate their prisoners and free them, they would shave their heads and let them go []

Well, there exists the drone option to shut down Noorullah Noori - permanently. Qatar isn't very big.
