Release of Guantanamo prisoners?

I hope the reports that the US is about to release a number of senior Taliban officials from Gitmo aren't true. If they are, the Obama Administration is being extraordinarily dumb. Releasing these guys would send a terrible message of weakness to the Taliban. Especially at a time when America needs to show more resolve. We cannot negotiate with the Taliban if they believe that all we care about is getting out of Afghanistan as soon as possible.

This reminds me of when the Administration stated that the US contribution to the removal of Gaddafi did not amount to hostilities. The President's team seem to think that they are always right.
