President Obama: Start the Afghan Peace Talks

President Obama should move immediately to transfer Afghan prisoners from Gitmo in exchange for the release of Bowe Bergdahl and start peace talks with the Afghan Taliban to end the war in Afghanistan.

Why is this important?

Afghan President Hamid Karzai is refusing to sign an agreement with the U.S. unless the U.S. agrees to transfer Afghan prisoners from Gitmo and start peace talks with the Afghan Taliban. These are just demands; they are stated U.S. policy. Transferring the Afghan prisoners is key to the return home of U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl and key to the beginning of peace talks to end the war. Peace talks are key to the safe withdrawal of U.S. troops. President Obama should implement the prisoner transfer without delay and start the peace talks without delay.
