That is the only way I can describe what will happen from now and into the future. At the request of provisional Iraqi authorities, the U.S military has agreed to start releasing detainees from Abu Ghraib prison before the October 15th constitutional referendum. 1000 such prisoners have already been released.
This is a very boneheaded move. Surf over to Michael Yon's blog and read the article titled Gates of Fire and ask LTC Kurilla. LTC Kurilla is no longer with his combat command because he was almost killed by a thug released from Abu Gharib.
Ask the Israelis or the British how such prisoner releases worked with the PLO or IRA. All they got was more violence and death of innocents. All the jihadi scum will see from this is one 'conciliatory move,' is the Coalition [the US] is more concerned with positive PR than being thorough. And weakness encourages would-be warrior fanatics.
