    Do you remember Whitewater? Benghazi's the same thing - just another baseless excuse for political witch-hunting, grandstanding, and fund-raising.

    Yeah that's the one.....here is some good info that will be coming out. Also I would recommend any of the Other threads up where I added more and even the New Yorker changed that perception a long time ago. Just sayin.

    Is this what Obama expects of those who serve in the military today. You don't like the war, you quit by deserting and you keep being paid and promoted. ****ing unbelievable.

    Todays U.S. military isn't the same military of six years ago.

    As Codolizza Rice pointed out, Obama is changing the purpose and culture of the U.S. military.

    If Obama hadn't purged so many warriors from the U.S. Officers Corps, I'm pretty sure this deserter would have already had charges of desertion brought up, his Taliban beard would have been forcibly shaved off and he would be sitting in the stockade waiting for his General Court Martial while tens of thousand of soldier volunteering to be part of the firing squad.

    So you are so buried with following the party line and supporting your guy, you will throw a bunch of other soldiers under the bus, suggesting they are liars. Class act. So much easier to take that route than to actually question the government…

    Well, I did wonder why the wait times kept getting longer at the VA each year he has been President.....especially after all the talk he did about helping Vets and keeping tabs on the targeting of Vets.

    What bothers me here.....there is no way Qatar can assure us these guys wont go back after our people. Especially with how long they have been locked up.

    Human nature will be telling them.....time for some payback.

    LOL. So much BS. It wouldn't matter to me WHO is president. For any president that signs something into law, then ignores it, should be looked at. Any soldier that it seems hated his country and deserted his duty, should be looked at further. What else might have gone into a deal to release 5 murderers that were marked as 'high risk' of them going back to their old ways and killing Americans, should probably be looked at a bit further and deeper. You are miserably failing with your lame attempt to push politics into someplace it does not exist, and in the process really showing a blind partisanship.

    While partisanship is tearing things apart in this country, it is those that act like you are, that are the biggest problem. "just feel this feeling that I do, otherwise you are a bunch of dumb m*****f******!" then fingers go in the ears with a loud "I DON'T HEAR YOU I DON'T HEAR YOU" … Not even an attempt at looking at the big picture or expressing a desire that perhaps there is more to it all than we know.

    I never once stood before the man. Not one NJP can be found in my SRB.

    I still remember at Camp Carrol when the Top Kick while going over my SRB and asking "What kind of Marine are you" ? "You should have at least three NJP's by now."

    ****, I made Sergeant with in 20 months after standing on the yellow footprints.

    When I was with the 5th MEB I was TAD to the Provost Marshals Office, only a ****ing chaser but I did stand in on one Summary Court Martial once. I have an idea how it works. Not like any civilian court that I've been in.

    partisanship is ruining America. when one can't even express happiness about the release of a POW without being swarmed by partisans who hate the president, there is a real problem.
