Do you think it's helpful to the troops still in harm's way that Obama has sent a clear message to terrorists that kidnapping U.S. troops will pay off, and the going rate is a 5-for-1 swap?

Are the Taliban really terrorists? They gave bin Laden safe haven for sure,  but they did not attact us, we invaded their country. Using that logic, the American Revolutionary War soldiers were terrorists. Remember Bush had the Taliban visit the US in 2000.

I'm trying to help you to understand that being in position to be kidnapped by the Taliban was never a winning proposition.

Re: American soldier held by Taliban for years is released 


That's just what this crap was.............A PR MOVE.

Well, let's see, if there are say 100 evil bastards still at GITMO, that means the Taliban just have to capture about 20 Americans, to empty the jail....

This isn't about some poor soldier......this is about, trying to plug the hole in the sinking ship.......YET ANOTHER POLITICAL MOVE...


Pinocchio just put increased risk on any American within range of the Taliban...

Obama didn't KNOW he was breaking U.S. law.....no one every told him, he was not briefed on this, he heard about it on a news broadcast, and rush-ordered the teleprompters to be in place, when some AWOL soldier exited the plane.   The Taliban are laughing in Afghanistan, thinking, "MAN, WHY THE HELL DIDN'T WE THINK OF THIS BEFORE?"

Re: American soldier held by Taliban for years is released 


So, one Obozo political move, at Benghazi, leaves 4 Americans murdered...and no response or help given, because to do so, would indicate it was a terrorist attack=bad press, just pre election...

So now, yet another Obozo political move, to stop the hemorrhaging, in the press.....and he gives away 5 of the most evil bastards on earth, FOR A SOLDIER WHO DESERTED HIS POST TO SEE THE TALIBAN....

That went out the window as soon as Reagan sold 1,500 missiles to Iran for five American hostages.

Were those Iranian hostages...deserters?    Don't think so...

But then again the Democratic Party has been a HUGE SUPPORTER of traitors.......see Kerry and Fonda....   Treason.....desertion to the enemy...no big deal..

There are about a half-dozen legitimate reasons this was a bad move, but the concept that negotiating with the Taliban somehow puts the US troops in more danger? I don't find the argument compelling.

If it came out in the news that Obama turned this deal down,  would the GOP have supported him, or attacked him for not getting this soldier back? I think we all know the answer.

We sure do, Zombie. Where was all this concern over terrorist hostage-taking when Reagan sent 1,500 missiles to Iran for five American hostages?

Geez, even the release of a guy who was a POW for close to 5 years has the cons questioning said POWs patriotism.

I rest my case with these azzclowns..........rolleyes

There are numerous stories that this guy went UA and caused some of our guys to get killed.

IF those stories are partially true, I would have left him.

Hodor.

I've heard about the "wanting to walk the earth" account about him several times.  If true, trading five Taliban leaders for his dumb ass was a mistake.

As Twitchy has reported, President Obama ordered the release of five Gitmo detainees to secure the return of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from his Taliban captors in Afghanistan.

Recently, a tweet was published from the account of Bowe Bergdahl’s father, Robert, which stated a desire to see all Gitmo detainees released:


Wow. This is the father who appeared alongside Obama today. RT @bobbergdahl: I am still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners.—

----------------------------------
I'm going to go out on a limb and say this father is a terrorist sympathizer.  He has since deleted his tweet but once it's out there, it can't be deleted.

First and foremost glad he is recovered.

However the story you are hearing is not accurate. He literally walked off (deserted) his OP in the hopes of finding the Taliban and being accepted. Obviously the Haqqani network didn't. He wasn't captured during a battle, he literally walked away. This isn't classified, this is all open source. With that said I was in Afghanistan in 2012. Kid is and was a deserter.

We released five very bad and evil people to recover a deserter. Glad he is recovered just wish it could have happened another way.

Thank God I have done my duty!

I understand his dad was speaking at the WH in Pashtun or Urdu yesterday when he talked.

This stinks to high heaven to me.  Now, maybe there is a logical story to this, but this one could have significant blow back as we learn more.
