    You are correct Juanitia.

    I have the balls to say I'm mistaken and stand corrected.

    You are correct, it is the father of Bowe Bergdahl.

    But this could be worse for Obama. The Bergdahl's sure don't look like they ever voted smart in their lives.

    Not really DS and not for this matter.....all due to BO not bringing the matter before Congress. The 30 day notice is minor. It whats he has to point out how these Taliban leaders and Terrorists have been mitigated. Compromised and will not be bringing anything back our way.

    Why was this guy Bergdahl (don't even want to refer to him as a soldier) promoted twice in rank when he was being classified by Obama's DOD as a POW ? This is totally unheard of in the past 236 years in America's history. Something stinks.

    Technically, isn't Bergdahl still in the U.S. military ? Why was he allowed to keep wearing his Taliban beard while being honored at the White House yesterday ? Definitely a violation of Army regulations here. Something stinks.

    Aren't Berdahl parents known lefty anti war/military activist ? Nothing smells here.

    Heya Apache. Has any brought why he was promoted twice? Are any defending these promotions. Did any bring up the Rolling Stone Article from those who had served with Bergdahl?

    This guy was actually walking around in uniform talking about.....How the US Military was a Joke. Constantly talking Anti Military talk. They have his comments even reported to Officers. Yet they still promote him while in captivity?

    The bizarre tale of America’s last known POW | New York Post

    Apparently there's more to this dude than the press is letting on. He sounds kind of screwy.

    Read about whom they gave up for this guy.

    I guess he wants to free all Gitmo prisoners.

    Yeah -that's SOP. Not only do you get promoted while you're a POW, but you get promoted non-competitively.

    But yeah, he sounds like a real winner. And that was before he wandered off and was captured.

    Heya CPW. Do they know he told his CO.....what equipment would be considered important to not let fall into the hands of the enemy. His CO told him the Night Vision goggles and his weapon. So he left them.....took a knife, canteen, camera, and diary. Headed off thinking he could make it over the mountains to Pakistan. He failed!

    Did you hear Susan Rice yesterday on this issue. This woman is Joke and embarrassment to all Americans.....and BO keeps her incompetent and failed ass Right up in the Peoples face. On Purpose!

    I also question the timing of all of this.....as BO and his Team are the Laughing stock of the International Community. Being treated like Patsies......made for the taking.

    Never negotiate with terrorists.

    It legitimizes them AND gives them incentive for more terror/kidnapping's.

    Not 5 for 1. The Taliban got back five dedicated high ranking warriors bent on the destruction of America. We got back one soldier that is suspected of desertion and possibly was never a threat of any proportion to our enemies. Judging from the verbals from his parents he was raised a weak kneed sissy. His mother sounds like she is one step from the Senile House of Panflakes. I have an issue with Obama walking to the podium with his arm around her waist as if she was his old lady. What is that about? This is a bad deal all around and totally indefensible by a president that may go down as the worst president in history. The Taliban is rightfully celebrating a huge victory over America.
