The five Afghan detainees who were released from the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba Saturday could resume their previous roles as Taliban commanders, according to a terrorism expert.



"Looking at the profiles of these individuals, I think there’s a valid reason for concern about what lies in the near future,” said terrorism analyst Evan Kohlmann.

The men were flown off to Qatar in a C-17 aircraft Saturday as part of a controversial deal with the Taliban to secure the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
