    i'm in shock. i cannot ****ing believe that you guys are making this political. i have disliked fox for a while now, but now i am starting to hate it along with the whole partisan media on both sides. stop ****ing up my country with this nonsense.

    a POW who spent five ****ing years as a captive just got sent home, and the right is launching a conspiracy theory because it still hates Obama. who gives a flying ****? just be happy that the dude is home.

    i'm really having difficulty controlling my anger about this.

    Heya Helix ......can you show the Army fielded by the Taliban? When did we issue a declaration of War on the Taliban?

    This has nothing to do with just the GOP questioning. There are Democrats questioning to.

    How can BO state these 5 Taliban leaders will be mitigated from going after US assets and US citizens?

    What don't you get about.....no matter how flowery BO makes his speech. The rest of the Planet just got done watching us Negotiate with terrorists. The US.....who says it absolutely refuses to negotiate with Terrorists.

    hi, MMC. hope that you are well.

    i think this topic makes me too angry to be civil. this dude being held hostage in a war that i want us to completely withdraw from has bothered me for a long time. when it came across the wires that he was being let go yesterday, my reaction was relief. ****, i've never gone through anything like that, and wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. i really didn't expect anyone to make it political, but i probably should have. i should probably walk away from this thread for an hour or so until i stop seeing red.

    as for the prisoners from Guantanamo, i support closing down the whole thing. holding people for 13 years without trial does not jibe with my vision of America.

    anyway, hope you guys are enjoying good weather up in Chicago. the GF said it got pretty cold there the other night.

    All is well brutha.....hope you are too. Yep we did go down in temp after having an 80 degree day. It was weird. Should have seen the fog in the early morning. Well you couldn't miss it.

    I can understand how you feel. Know most Vets are happy this guy is out of the ****. Yet its the cost.....and as some have pointed out. Others have been killed and or wounded out looking for this guy.

    Which says nothing about our Enemies and now for sure, AQ.....who has been directing their message to now. That's now......go after US Citizens so that they can negotiate the release of their people. Seeing this take place for the Z-Man.....he must be dancing a jig and hitting his Hookah Pipe. Just sayin!

    So when Rolling Stone magazine talks to people that were in the unit with this guy, and they all say he just walked away. When emails from the guy talk about his disgust with America and the army and days later he supposedly 'walks off'… well all that is a right wing/fox news conspiracy?

    That dog don't hunt dude… not even close.

    He was a POW because he deserted his unit; a desertion that was possibly motivated by a desire to turn his coat.

    Which is another point.....if he wouldn't have went walkabout. Would he have been taken?

    Purdy much a 100% chance he wouldn't have.

    Re: US soldier freed from captivity in Afghanistan

    Actually this deal has been in the works.....once we gave the Taliban an Office. Which like I said.....once the Z- Man found out. He didn't waste any time.



    Al-Qaida Chief: We Must Kidnap Americans to Exchange for Prisoners.....

    DUBAI — Al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahiri has called on Muslims to kidnap Westerners, particularly Americans, who could then be exchanged for jailed jihadists including a blind Egyptian cleric convicted in 1995 of conspiring to attack the United Nations and other New York landmarks.

    In a wide ranging audio interview, the al-Qaida leader expressed solidarity with the Muslim Brotherhood which is facing a violent crackdown by the army-backed government in Egypt and urged unity among rebels in their fight against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

    Reuters could not verify the authenticity of the Zawahiri tape, but the voice resembled that of the al-Qaida leader.

    "So everyone should prioritize the interest of Islam and the Ummah over his organizational or partisans interest, even if he gives up for his brothers what he sees as right.".....snip~
