Tages-Anzeiger (Switzerland), 5 June 2014

Article (in German) about the Afghan prisoner swap between the US and the Taleban, with quotes of AAN’s Thomas Ruttig, saying, among other things that  fears the Taleban could learn from their success with Bergdahl that it pays to abduct US soldiers are unrealistic, that the choice of Qatar as a venue was a “clever choice” (the article doesn’t give the full quote; I said because the country is a key ally of the US and the Taleban trust it nevertheless; it also does not giv my quote that it was another US mistake to keep the Afghan gvernment outside that deal) and that it does not make sense to demonise the Taleban.
