    I said many, I didn't say all or even a majority. However, just because I don't put "And the left does it too" after EACH instance of me pointing out something doesn't me I support it either. There is nothing mischaractizing saying many people want him left there with the Taliban.

    I disagree, I think there would still be a problem with the trade, but at least he wouldn't have given the optics of aiding our enemies, while holding a military criminal in higher regard than a decorated honorable solider.
    And that is your opinion which I disagree with. And no, I don't think my opinion is fact on it either, just my opinion.

    You're building a strawman argument here...I never said we should send US troops in...But, yes, it is the same damned thing....One man or one hundred. The result on moral, and military cohesiveness is the same.
    Again, no it isn't. Bergdahl left because he felt the war was immoral. The Iraqi Army left because they were afraid.

    So desertion is ok as long as it isn't whole units at a time?
    Where did I say desertion it ok? I even stated it should be investigated and if necessary a trial. How you get that I think desertion is ok is beyond me.

    Just curious. This is the first report I've seen that this soldier we traded for in Afghanistan has said anything? I'll be curious to know who is directing his comments? Are these his words or has the obummer regime given him the best PR firm a government can buy?

    These comments are almost to politically correct. His email, his statements as reported by others and the concerns many had about his collaboration, treason and desertion are they "swift boating" him? Is that orchestrated by Fox? I see at least 6 young men coming forward and blasting this man....so do you believe one or six?

    This guy could say anything. Why would anyone believe anything he says?

    This administration abandoned that soldier in Mexico as well as the Ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi. Americans in Iraq, including workers in the US Embassy, should not count on any support from this government.
