The Obama administration, without consulting the United States Congress which is required by law, released 5 high ranking Taliban members that were being held at Gitmo in exchange for 1 United States Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl who allegedly walked-away (deserted is more like it) from his post and have listed him as AWOL not deserter since June 30, 2009
Currently there is a decorated USMC Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi being held in a Mexico jail for simply making a wrong turn. There is also a petition on the White House web site to secure his freedom, which as of this morning isn't happening. This decorated hero Marine sits in a Mexican jail while this deserter is getting fussed over in Germany. This deserter’s home town is making preparations to welcome him home as some kind of hero while a true hero sits and waits for his fate and being ignored by this administration.
The stark contrast of the two is palm to face disappointing. This administration appears to be running in the same fashion as the Nixon administration with its "above the law" mentality with the actions it takes to get things done. Getting things done in the wrong way is just as bad as not getting them done in the first place.
When you purposely stack your house in order to protect you from any legal ramifications whatsoever, you circumvent the purpose of being accountable and held accountable for your actions. You are labeled ROUGE and detrimental to the welfare and safety of Americans here and abroad.
For those objectionable individuals that say the United States should not be at war, things about to take a turn for the worse with those detainees that were just released. According to the conditions of release the former guests of Gitmo are to remain in Qatar for 1 year. That isn’t going to happen. I bet plans are in the works to sneak each and every one of those high ranking Taliban members back out and into the fight. That's just how they roll.
You cannot trust or negotiate with terrorists, that has been a standing United States policy for as long as I can remember. You cannot trust this administration to accomplish anything sensible, legally, or correctly. We are in the mists of a total breakdown of accountability by an individual that could not even make a living as a community organizer.
The painful reality of it all is there are supporters who think and want the same things as this administration seeks to accomplish. Those individuals will be posting to this soon in lock-step disagreeing with reality while agreeing with fantasy and their leader Mickey Mouse.
America is about to be introduced to the term FUBAR!
