    Strawman. I have been. I lean libertarian just like you. Bring our soldiers home from everywhere in the world where they arent fighting a direct threat to the states. But that has nothing to do with a policy of releasing enemies to terrorist groups.

    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.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taliban_five

    Bowe Bergdahl’s Father on Twitter: “I Am Working to Free All Guantanamo Prisoners… ameen” | The Gateway Pundit!

    I guess he wants to free all Gitmo prisoners.

    I have to agree with some of the posters on Gateway Pundit you posted....This guy does sound like at the very least a Taliban sympathizer, and should be looked at if he compromised any sensitive information about his unit to the Taliban he left his post in search of to join....

    I also agree that his father sounds a little batty as well...

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.
    I agree.

    His mom is kind of good looking at least in one pic I've seen.

    I'd have to hear her thoughts....If she follows suit with her Taliban supporting husband, and possibly son, then I have no thoughts on what she looks like because that would make her ugly to me.

    A Taliban sympathizer? Holy Cow, what a dangerous guy.

    I wonder if Colin Powell was a Taliban sympathizer when he hand carried a check to the Taliban, from the US government, for $40 some odd million, back in April 2001?

    Lots of good info at this link: Fellow soldiers call Bowe Bergdahl a deserter, not a hero - CNN.com
    Seems I heard of this several years ago. But from what source I don't remember. Deserters and those going awol are not new even in combat zones.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Morning HD...Why bring a strawman into the discussion? I said nothing about him being dangerous I don't think...So, using your line of logic, you think this was a good trade?
