In "The Jem'Hadar", three Jem'Hadar frigates defeated a Galaxy class with ease. Their polaron weapons went right through the Odyssey's shields. It wasn't till the Federation had rapidly upgraded its ships that they were a match for the Jem'Hadar.

When a heroin user is on withdrawal, they're irritable. When a Jem'Hadar is on withdrawal, they tend to shoot people - watch "Rocks and Shoals". So withdrawing the white would weaken them, but they'd still be capable of doing a lot of damage before they die out.

It's not a matter of intelligence - they were genetically bred to revere the Founders as gods. And I think most diplomats would be afraid if they were facing down a dangerous enemy without bodyguards.

As already stated, releasing her was necessary to dissolve Kar'ukan's forces. Even after it didn't work, recapturing her would have enraged the Dominion and likely started another war.

And personally, I think letting her rot in prison for the rest of her life is a much harsher punishment than an execution.
