You must give credit, where credit is due. These guys obviously bribed many guards and others in authority to pull off such a daring plan. While it sickens me personally that it worked, it shows we must never, let me repeat that, NEVER, underestimate our enemies resolve. Regardless of their vile hateful philosophy, they are patient, intelligent and are a formidable enemy. They put together a prison escape that reminds me of the famous movie "The Great Escape". With actors, Steve McQueen, James Colburn James Gardner and host of fine British actors. It also reveals what terrible Allies the Afghan's are for the Western coalition against terrorism. Clearly the Afghan's have been penetrated at the highest, and lowest levels with Al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorists. Whether it's money, or even more dangerous ideology, they have numerous traitors.

did Karzai and family members get on a secret bank account for turning a blind eye on such a wide-scale escape? Just wondering!
4. "Escape"?
Sidney ,   USA   (04.25.11)
The U.S. should get out of Afghanistan. Some of our people died to capture these "escapees".
