The Huffington Post cites the Atlantic Council for cohosting an event with Afghan presidential candidate Dr. Abdullah Abdullah:
One of the men vying to become Afghanistan’s next president said Thursday he was worried that the five Taliban detainees swapped for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl would return to the battlefield.
“Our main concern is about those who have been released, that they will not join the battlefield — because those are criminals which had committed crimes, [in] a massive way, against the Afghan people,” said Dr. Abdullah Abdullah, one of two candidates in a Saturday runoff for Afghanistan’s presidency.
He made the remarks during a Skype interview at a Washington event held by the Atlantic Council and the Center for American Progress.
