The 65 prisoners released by Afghanistan are considered dangerous insurgents and possibly a threat to the US. It is believed they would have been convicted in Afghan court of being insurgents. Afghanistan has chosen to free them in spite of US opposition. For that reason, the US should impose sanctions on Afghanistan for them releasing the prisoners.
In addition to pulling out U.S. troops by the end of 2014, Congress should withhold foreign aid to Afghanistan if leadership in the war-torn country can't figure out what to do with its prisoners. Although the release of its own prisoners is up to Afghanistan itself, as long as our military provides security there will be issues. Starting in 2015, it won't matter anyway.
The United States needs to send a strong message to Afghanistan and President Karzai that they need to co-operate. In response to the release of dangerous prisoners, America should create sanctions against them. This is the only way to make it chear that America will not stand for such insubordination.
Yes, the US should place sanctions on Afghanistan for releasing prisoners in spit of the US' opposition, because the United States is doing all that it can to improve life in Afghanistan and around the world. Afghanistan needs to show that it is willing to work in good faith with us and improve their own society by following our directives.
If the United States opposes these sanctions, the it would be in the United States governments best interest not to put them into effect. If they go ahead and do, it will cause a lot of problems with the public, and that is something the government does not need now.
