Typical Barry deal. Trading terrorist’s for a traitor. He let them loose to return to jihad against us. Not to mention our men that were attacked and killed while searching for that traitor Bergdahl. Pure evil.
Also, don’t forget Susan Rice saying that Bergdahl “served with honor.” And don’t forget that Obama also paid money in ransom.
Six American soldiers – Clayton Bowen, Morris Walker, Kurt Curtiss, Darryn Andrews, Michael Murphrey, and Matthew Martine – died in the course of trying to rescue traitor Bergdahl.
Think about this for a moment. Obama traded 5 hardcore Islamic terrorists to recover traitor Bowe Bergdahl, the deserter who wanted to leave his troops and join the Taliban. This is the true legacy of Barack Obama, negotiating with terrorists for deserters and traitors.
“I understand that leaving was against the law,” said Bergdahl, whose decision to walk off his remote post in Afghanistan in 2009 prompted intense search and recovery missions, during which some of his comrades were seriously wounded and other soldiers died.
At the time, Obama administration officials said Bergdahl had “served with honor and distinction.”
Americans died and this is what we are left with.
Not surprising that Fox refers to the prisoners exchanged as “terrorists”.
Many of the men picked up by rendition (a controversial practice for obvious reasons) around the world had no connections to AQ or any other terrorist organizations. In fact come to think of it, how many prisoners were ever seriously prosecuted???
In America you’re (suppose to be) innocent UNTIL PROVEN guilty. Bergdaghl was only just now convicted.
Yet they didn’t mention the honor and distinction of our heroes who went searching for him and lost their lives in the process. This piece of shit should burn in hell and a firing squad should help him get there.
Those 5 could be Obama’s sons .
Your right, the detained were absolutely nobody:
Khirullah Said Wali Khairkhwa
This 47-year-old was once the Taliban’s interior minister, actually helping to create the Taliban movement in 1994. His Guantanamo case file, released by WikiLeaks, described him as a “hard-liner in his support of the Taliban philosophy” and “known to have close ties to Osama bin Laden.”
Captured by Pakistani border patrol on Feb. 16 2002.
Mullah Mohammad Fazl
Also 47, Fazi was a senior commander in the Taliban army during the 1990s, eventually becoming its chief of staff. He is thought to have personally supervised the killing of thousands of Shiite Muslims near Kabul between 1998 and 2001. His Guantanamo case file also describes him as being present at a 2001 prison riot that led to the death of CIA operative Johnny Michael Spann, the first U.S. citizen killed in the Afghan war. “If released, detainee would likely rejoin the Taliban and establish ties with ACM elements participating in hostilities against US and Coalition forces in Afghanistan,” his case file reads.
Fazi surrendered to a Northern Alliance commander in November 2001, and was transferred to U.S. custody in December.
Mullah Norullah Noori
Noori, 47, was a provincial governor in several areas during the Taliban regime. He is also believed to have been present during Spann’s death and may have also been involved in the Shiite massacre. His Guantanamo case file says that he “continues to be a significant figure encouraging acts of aggression.”
Noori turned himself in to a Northern Alliance commander in November 2001.
Abdul Haq Wasiq
Wasiq, 43, was the deputy chief of intelligence for the Taliban. According to his Guantanamo case file, he “utilized his office to support al Qaeda” and was “central to the Taliban’s effort to form alliances with other Islamic fundamentalist groups.”
The Bush administration released 534 Guantánamo prisoners, the Obama administration 198. Guantánamo was an island outside the law that held people without due process, there’s a reason why the vast majority of them were cut loose.
Tell that to the press in the way they are reporting on the president… and still not one shred of evidence…
Bergdahl plead out. He was never convicted. He was never even tried.
He took it because he could have faced a much harsher punishment if it went to trial and things could come out that he (and the government, perhaps) wants to be buried.
Like the true coward he is he was trying to avoid the rope. He’s a disgrace to this country and America will never forget it. He has a long life ahead of him and I hope that it’s a miserable one. Another one of Obama’s legacies.
He will be sentenced in a few weeks. Probably spend life in the pokie.
Even if he gets to spend his life in prison, there are six members of the military who lost their lives trying to find his stupid ass. He shouldn’t get to live. If only he could be executed six times over.
Drop him in gen pop, throw in 3 cans of Vaseline, a case of Viagra and 20 boxes of condoms… Then all guards walk away for a few hours.
Do this daily for about a month and then take away the condoms and Vaseline.
He’ll probably enjoy it. After all he was locked up with Taliban. I’m sure he was there precious little snowflake. I mean, how could goats even compete with Bowe?
Bergdahl should be shot to remind people of why desertion and dereliction of duty are despicable acts. He is a murderer.
