It's amazing to see the extent that Obama apologists go in trying to cover
for his obviously flawed decisions. How this situation is perceived should be a
no-brainer since basic important facts of this matter are already known.1) Bergdahl sent an email before going AWOL claiming that the war was
wrong and that he was embarrassed to be a soldier of the U.S. military. And that
is paraphrasing mildly. 2) He tried to cash out as much of his pay as
possible just before going AWOL and left instructions to send his computer and
other personal belongings to his parents. 3) He left his rifle when he
went AWOL, meaning he had no intent of engaging or fighting the enemy. 4)
Literally his entire platoon considers him to be a deserter.5) Fellow
soldiers were killed when searching for him.7) The 5 Taliban officials
traded for Bergdahl weren't ordinary combatants. They are high ranking
officials who've taken a sworn oath for the destruction of the United
States. They're already responsible for killing thousands of civilians and
soldiers and will undoubtedly kill many more.This was a very, very
So the people that sent him over there think we should have turned our backs on
him. Chicken Hawks who never served calling him a traitor. Disgusting.
Maybe a better question would be whether the person polled regards the Taliban
as an enemy. I believe that would provide better insight into a person's
@brio So do you have any actual proof to support any of your
"facts?" simply because some talking head says it on TV doesnot make it
Releasing five terrorists who have killed thousands, and in 2013, released
36,000 convicted criminals from American prisons.What kind of
president do we have?
intervention--do some homework, and you'll find the truth.It's just that simple.
@?rio......Nice job! To think your comments were based upon some talking heads
on tv, shows the daft that is represented by those on the left......I too saw those brave soldiers who served with Bergdahl and they are the true
HERO'S who Obama tried to silence!
@worfThe truth is worf that there is no proof supporting the claims
above. The truth is we do not know much of anything at this point which I
suspect is why you also provided no proof.
Last week the Obama haters wanted impeachment. This week they're willing to
settle for being right that this was a "bad trade," as if we are
discussing their fantasy league moves. Spare me. Next week you'll move on
to the next scandal. Although I have to hand it to them on this one--we've
seen the big leagues of hatred here. As McClark said above, 'chicken hawks
who never served, calling him a traitor.' Well, I served and I'm again
thanking a very brave President Obama for making a move to bring one of ours
This was not a trade of prisoners of war. It was a trade of one U.S. soldier,
for 5 war criminals, who should have been tried for crimes against humanity, not
released to fight another day. The War on Terror is NOT over just because we
are leaving Afghanistan. That is the difference between this war and others
where both sides quit fighting. Al Queda, Taliban, will all go on with their
war against the U.S. and others. And we, Obama, put 5 of their starting lineup
back on the terrorism playing field. Stupid move anyway you look at it.
I think a good question to ask in the poll was where do you get the majority of
your news source from? Republicans respondents would have been Fox or talk
radio, and that's not a news source. BO is a great American who
brought one of our service men home. Shame on any American who supports leaving
a soldier behind.
FTIn your dreams and hopes Fox News is not a news source. They
provide a more balanced and COMPLETE look at the news than any other outlet
I'm aware of. Care to mention who you believe to be a legitimate news
source. Just about anyone you mention I could likely give you examples of where
they didn't cover stuff that was seen a bad for Obama. The fourth estate
has sold their sole for Obama. Shame on them for being cheerleaders instead of
Woodward and Bernsteins. Our country needs all reporters to be skeptical of
political leaders and power, not just the ones they vote against. And we know
factually that some 80% of journalists are Democrat. If it wasn't for Fox
News, we likely would never have known about many of these Obama scandles. You
just don't like the message of the messingers. Well, welcome to what it
was like during the days when many were trying to defend Richard Nixon. They
tried to shoot the messenger. It didn't alter the truth though.
intervention,like I said.Do some homework! The
information is clear.
