    Changes nothing and is only being told about to protect the now criminal president.
    That has got to be the shortest article ever, which just screams BS.

    Just means the President is an idiot who can't figure out a simple thing like informing congress without the enemy finding out. The excuse doesn't sound at all real.

    Actually he would be an idiot to tell Congress anything without expecting a leak.

    Now it's even more heavily "negotiating with terrorist", because now we've let them dictate the terms.


    Literally, a group of people have demanded our president break the law...and he did. Because they told him to.

    Lets see Trade five known terrorist for One deserter possible traitor. Why would the Taliban threaten to kill one of their own members? Makes no sense at all.

    BS the Senate Armed Services committee knew in advance of the Bin Laden raid.

    OMFG.

    "Let's see . . . what do we have to say to make this go away?" I don't believe it for a moment.

    Is this excuse, then, a reason the president may always act unilaterally? It's bull****.
