Five more foot soldiers are headed back to the front lines of the real war on women thanks to President Obama. Abdul Haq Wasiq was a deputy minister of intelligence for the Taliban and helped al-Qaida. He has been accused of murder and torture.

Mullah Norullah Noori was a military commander for the Taliban. He fought American forces in Afghanistan and, according to Fox News, "Noori has been implicated in the murder of thousands of Shiites in Northern Afghanistan." Noori said the killings were necessary as the Taliban worked to create their "ideal state."

Mullah Mohammad Fazi is the Taliban's former deputy defense minister. He commanded a division of the Taliban's army and served as the chief of staff to the Taliban Army. He maintained ties with various terrorist groups and coordinated with them.

Mullah Khairullah Khairkhwa is the former governor of Herat province. We know he represented the Taliban in meetings with Iranians and had close ties to Osama bin Laden. The government is also pretty certain he trafficked in opium in addition to maintaining a terror training camp in Afghanistan.

Mohammad Nabi Omari smuggled weapons for the Taliban and possibly al-Qaida. He maintained close ties to the Taliban's leadership in Afghanistan and with local terror networks.

For all the Democrats' shrill rhetoric against Republicans being engaged in a "war on women," these men really were. They were foot soldiers in the Taliban's war on women before they turned to war with al-Qaida against the United States. They believe women should be fully covered. They believe in stoning women and keeping them from an education. They believe if a woman is raped she deserved it. They also believe in death to America. They have been released from Guantanamo Bay on orders of President Obama for an American soldier named Bowe Bergdahl.

Bowe Bergdahl appears to have walked off his military base in Afghanistan without permission. His colleagues believe he deserted. They suggest he was sympathetic to the Taliban and disillusioned with the American military.

On CNN, his former squad leader, Staff Sgt. Justin Gerleve, told Jake Tapper that Bergdahl "totally deserted." While Gerleve said, "I can't say for sure the leakage was from Bergdahl," he noted that after Bergdahl left, the base attacks from the Taliban "did get more direct, the IEDs did get more pinpoint to our trucks rather than the side of the roads, and everything like that." Gerleve also confirmed Bergdahl left the base in search of the Taliban.
