US soldier held by Taliban in Afghanistan freed after five years

Best wishes to Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl on being released.
However, it is a great shame that the media and world public opinion does not get as aroused about the detainees incarcerated without trial in Guantanamo Bay prison.Some inmates have been incarcerated in Guantanamo for over 12 years, without trial or legal representation.

While this stain on civil liberties and human rights remains in operation, we should not become overly excited about the release of one Taliban prisoner.
