I saw that this morning, the Obama administration is already changing their story in less than 24 hours after coming out announcing that they traded five extremely dangerous high ranking Taliban leaders for one American deserter.
Why didn't they in the beginning announced they broke the law and gave the reason when they first announced the exchange ?
You watch, the Obama White House excuses and story will keep changing.
The Obama White House still hasn't explained why they brought this deserter to the White House still wearing his Taliban beard and treated him as a hero.
Deserting from your unit in a combat zone is worse than buggery, it's worse than surrendering, it's worse than falling asleep on your post in combat. Why isn't this guy in the stockade right now ? Why is he still wearing the Taliban beard ?
Is this another attempt of covering up the incompetencies of the Obama administration ?
I think Obama really stepped in it here. I just can't fathom why anyone, including his advisors did not see what a disaster this could turn into. What if it turns out that this soldier deserted and skirted his oat and responsibilities as a soldier by being "captured" by the enemy? There are two disturbing conclusions I can think off right off the top of my head. He either cares very little for the military in the sense where good order and discipline need to be maintained. Or he just really did not think of the consequences at all....
I mean just paint the picture yourself. You have the President of the United States shaking hands and giving a warm welcome to someone who may have deserted his unit and got several soldiers in his unit killed trying to find him. You have the President of the United States warmly welcoming someone who's beliefs run contradictory to the war effort he is sending troops in to fight. You have the President of the United States standing next to someone who may hold extremist beliefs that continue to kill Americans all over the world. Does anyone else but myself see this, or is everyone wearing the same blinders? I really am beside myself..... I am not even a politician and I can even understand why Obama would have distanced himself from this situation. Maybe mention that they have secured his release and give a brief statement that he is glad he is able to bring an American citizen back to America, but leave it at that. Even that may have been to much...
- There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
- Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
- Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
Qatar is the one offering assurances. Well.....if anything. We should be making an Offer to Qatar. One that THEY can't Nor wont refuse.
Forget about Obama breaking the law again, it's expected.
It's about a "sad sack" of a soldier who committed a capital offense and let down the soldiers of his unit, the U.S. Army and America and deserted his post in a combat zone. During war time, desertion (Article 85 UCMJ) death by musketry. That's how serious this is. And this low life shows up at the White House still wearing his Taliban beard and is treated as a hero. What the **** is going on ?
