Make sure you wear your Support Our Troops pin on your shirt while doing it. 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?

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.— Christian Ziegler (@ChrisMZiegler) June 01, 2014----------------------------------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.

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.
