    Democrat Dianne Feinstein: Obama Broke The Law With Bergdahl Swap....

    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss said the administration violated the law by failing to address serious concerns they had about the deal to swap Bergdahl for five Taliban detainees. Chambliss said he had not had a conversation with the White House about a possible exchange for at least 18 months.

    "It comes to us with some surprise and dismay that the transfers went ahead with no consultation, totally not following law," Feinstein told reporters following a closed door meeting. "And in an issue with this kind of concern to a committee that bears the oversight responsibility, I think you can see that we're very dismayed about it ." .....snip~

    Why haven't they impeached him yet?
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    As a political strategy it would be stupid to do so.

    Right now he's the gift that keeps on giving so if it were up to me I'd just sit back while they **** up everything they put their hands on, take the Senate in the fall, and effectively neuter him for the remainder of his term.

    Also tell us who in the Obama administration uttered the words "suck it up and salute". You can't, because no one did.

    One of many opinions:

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Only comment is, who's surprised ? Even former Sec. of Defense Gates in his book says that the Obama administration refuses to listen to the military.

    Obama and those with in his incompetent administration hate the military and Barack Obama is a national security risk.

    >" The Obama administration sent a message for years to wary military and intelligence officials who believed the release of the Taliban Five would come back to haunt the U.S.: ‘Suck it up and salute.’


    Mullah Mohammad Fazl, Mullah Norullah Noori, Abdul Haq Wasiq, Khairullah Khairkhwa and Mohammed Nabi Omari were all deemed in 2008 to be at “high risk” for returning to the battlefield if released, but that did not stop the White House from releasing them in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl over the weekend.


    “Officials in the Pentagon and intelligence communities had successfully fought off release of the five men in the past,” Time reported Tuesday. “This [sudden release] was out of the norm,” he continued. “There was never [a] conversation.”

    “Obama’s move was an ultimate victory for those at the White House and the State Department who had previously argued the military should ‘suck it up and salute,’ says the official familiar with the debate,” reported Time..."<

    Foll
    Obama thinks he's some sort of "king" that can do whatever he wants....

    I would refuse to salute him or his idiots who concocted this stupidity, and as a civilian I would refuse to salute or even shake his hand (although I have shacked his hand in the past) - he has the handshake of a little 5-year-old girl btw - he doesn't shake like a man that's for sure. No wonder why he is so weak, he has no man in him and lacks balls. His handshake is feminine to say the least.

    Another problem is that one who wishes to impeach him would have to have proof that he lied or committed some sort of high crime, and that is difficult to do when he basically uses those under him to commit his treason - or lets agencies run wild and do whatever they want.

    Eventually the deck of cards will fall and someone will talk and a lot of people will be going to federal prison - that or have their political careers completely ruined.

    Remember the majority of these class act tyrants are lawyers and they know how not to incriminate themselves personally....

    I'm shocked how Lois Lerner isn't in prison yet or Eric Holder for that matter.

    Put any one of these clowns on the stand and they will all be found guilty of perjury.

    In public tho they can say whatever the hell they want.

    I never said anyone was a gentleman... in fact they look a lot like the cast of Duck Dynasty ...but tell us, if they were so dangerous, why weren't they charged with anything and why were they slated for release by next year?
