I don’t want to get into whether or not U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is a deserter of a muslim confer or anything. For the moment we are going to leave him out of the conversation. The fact he abandoned his position and weapon in a combat zone are for a court martial committee to decide. The more concerning issue is that this administration has set a precedent, by negotiating with the Taliban (a known terrorist organization), this administration (once again) has done nothing but embolden our enemies. The Taliban who have nothing to lose were able to trade Bowe Bergdahl for the Gitmo 5. For those who haven't kept up with the news, the Gitmo 5 are some of the most dangerous terrorists that were captured in Afghanistan.
The problem is, the Obama administration was looking for the “Hail Mary” play. A feel good story to divert the countries attention from __________ (Insert scandal here. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, VA, Obamacare Failures, and the list goes on). However once again they put their keen minds to the task and came up with the worst solution. I’m sure they thought “No one can find fault with us bringing home one of our “POW’s”. In doing so emboldening our enemies all over the planet to take American hostages, then enter negotiations.
The next question you have to ask is why Congress was NOT notified. (Full disclosure: The new report is that Harry Reid was notified, then again it is well known that this administration lies and Dirty Harry swears to it). Break a law that Obama himself signed. The fact that they unilaterally break the law then come up with excuses as to why they had to break the law. Reminds me of the adage “It is easier to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission”.
This leads me to another question, why is it that EVERY President prior to this one had to observe the balance of powers, yet this one “goes rogue” every chance he gets. From changing the rules for Obamacare by fiat, launching an attack on Libya, or releasing prisoners form Gitmo. But worry not American patriots as the champion of truth and justice Lindsey Graham, has said if this happens again there will be a push for impeachment. AWESOME. However Senator, now I have a question for you. How many treasonous acts with this President have to commit before there are actual impeachment proceedings?
I have many more questions, but I am sure I will never get an answer to any of them. For example: How did Bowe Bergdahl become a SGT.? When we “disappeared” (for lack of a better word) he was a Private. What meritorious act did he commit as a POW to warrant a promotion?Another good question is why is this administration trying to slander the rest of Bergdahl’s platoon by cling them psychopaths? Why were they FORCED to sign non-disclosure agreements concerning the original Bergdahl search and rescue mission where six soldiers lost their lives? And lastly, how many warriors lost their lives in pursuit of the Gitmo 5, that the administration just returned to the combat theater?
If you have an answer to any of these questions, please leave it in the comments.
