Pakistan security released Taliban
Pakistan security continues the catch-and-release program having caught the Taliban leaders and then letting them go. What could be going on? Speculating, Pakistan security is learning something from Taliban leaders, such as “Where is Osama.” Having gained new information, they let them go.
As the story says below, Pakistan security sees Afghanistan elected government as the enemy, and wants Afghanistan to be controlled by the Taliban?
The enemy of my enemy is my friend gets very convoluted in these parts.
Such a fractured situation makes intervention by the US and other foreigners ineffective toward achieving stability.
“U.S. officials say Pakistani spy agency released Afghan Taliban insurgents

The recent capture of the Afghan Taliban's second in command seemed to signal a turning point in Pakistan, an indication that its intelligence agency had gone from helping to cracking down on the militant Islamist group.
But U.S. officials now believe that even as Pakistan's security forces worked with their American counterparts to detain Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar and other insurgents, the country's Inter-Services Intelligence directorate, or ISI, quietly freed at least two senior Afghan Taliban figures it had captured on its own.
U.S. military and intelligence officials said the releases, detected by American spy agencies but not publicly disclosed, are evidence that parts of Pakistan's security establishment continue to support the Afghan Taliban. This assistance underscores how complicated the CIA-ISI relationship remains at a time when the United States and Pakistan are battling insurgencies that straddle the Afghanistan border and are increasingly anxious about how the war in that country will end.”
