The good news is that Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl is being released by the Taliban after almost five years in captivity. That is good news.
However, in order to secure his release, Obama released five terrorists from GITMO described as “the worst of the worst.” According to the Pentagon, there is an extremely high likelihood that the release terrorists will unleash new attacks.
Also, Obama violated US Law that requires Congress to be notified before terrorists are released from the prison complex at Guantanamo Bay. But then, Obama has firmly established that laws do not apply to him, and it is very, very racist to point out his lawlessness.
Obama needed the PR boost; the VA scandal has been kicking him in the pants for the past week.
People are going to die because of this trade.
There’s an American Marine being held in a Mexican prison in Tijuana after accidentally crossing the border with legally owned guns. Obama isn’t lifting a finger to help Sergeant Tahmooressi.
I can’t help but think if a Russian Marine were being held in a prison in just over the border, Putin would send in Spetznatz and get that situation straightened out in a hurry.
