U.S. To Free American Killers In Iraq

As a show of reconciliation, the United States is preparing to release members of an Iraqi militia known to have killed American soldiers. This is not the first time the U.S. military has freed members of the Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq, which translates into League of the Righteous.

Of course, the United States military has been taking on a diminishing role in Iraq and - eventually, all U.S. soldiers will thankfully be withdrawn. But it would seem to me that the prudent thing to do is wait until then to release the militia members on the Iraq populous. Let's at least wait until the American troops are out of harm's way!
