The Taliban is happy to see their 5 ex-Guantanamo prisoners in Afghanistan.
The 5 Guantanamo are being traded for the release of the United States soldier ‘Bowe Bergdahl’.
Bowe Bergdahl had been taken hostage by the Taliban in 2009. 5 years later, he has been released as Barack Obama and the Taliban agreed to exchange persons.

Taliban prisoners traded
The 5 Taliban prisoners which have been released from Guantanamo are responsible for the killing of thousands of Afhanian minitorites.
A February 2008 Pentagon document said Fazl served as Taliban deputy minister of defense and as a senior commander who was chief of staff of the Taliban army. The U.S. military said he was wanted by the United Nations for possible war crimes including the murder of thousands of Afghanistan’s minority Shi’ite Muslims between 1998 and 2001. It said he was born in 1967 in Afghanistan’s Uruzgan province. According to U.S. military documents, Fazl was also on the scene of a November 2001 prison riot that killed CIA operative Johnny Micheal Spann, the first American who died in combat in the Afghan war. There is no evidence, however, that Fazl played any direct role in Spann’s death.
Mullah Norullah Noori
A February 2008 Pentagon document said Noori was a senior Taliban military commander in the Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif during fighting in late 2001 after the U.S. invasion. It said he also was the Taliban governor for two provinces and was wanted by the United Nations for possible war crimes including the murder of thousands of Shi’ite Muslims. It said he was born in 1967 in Afghanistan’s Zabul province.
A March 2008 Pentagon document said Khairkhwa was a senior Taliban official serving as the minister of interior, governor of Herat and a military commander. It said that after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, he represented the Taliban during meetings with Iranian officials seeking to support hostilities against US forces in Afghanistan. It said he was born in 1967 in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province.
Abdul Haq Wasiq
A January 2008 Pentagon document said Wasiq served as the Taliban deputy minister of intelligence. “He was central to the Taliban’s efforts to form alliances with other Islamic fundamentalist groups to fight alongside the Taliban against US and Coalition forces after the 11 September 2001 attacks,” the document said. It said he was born in 1971 in Afghanistan’s Ghazni province.
