While US terror arrests show a frightening acceleration from recent years, the five Taliban leaders exchanged for deserter Bowe Bergdahl could be released as soon as Monday.

The five former Guantanamo detainees have been under close monitoring in Qatar and subject to a travel ban since their release last year. The agreement with Qatar is set to expire June 1.

While the Washington Post reported earlier this month that the administration was in talks with Qatari officials about potentially extending security measures for the group, it’s unclear if any restrictions will remain in place after the end of the month.

Asked this week if the talks produced any agreement, a State Department official told FoxNews.com, “We don’t have any updates.”

Remember when Obama described his own foreign policy doctrine as “don’t do stupid shit?”

Good times, good times.
