    No, but trading away 5 top value prisoners is the wrong way to go about it.

    Look, we sent in a Seal team to land in the backyard of the Worlds most wanted man, killed him and his bodyguards before they could get a shot off, and did it all with out one casualty.

    The fact is he wanted to dump Gitmo detainees.

    With no concern for the future threat on American soldiers OR Afganis who have been fighting the Taliban along side American soldiers.

    And to top it off, he thought nothing more of the American people than to offer up blatant lies.

    Believing in our intelligence community is entirely different from what you said. You do amuse me though. I wonder how you will try and twist this into something I did not say...

    That's an assumption. I don't want to see anyone killed either, but I'd rather Bergdhal's actions be investigated and acted upon.

    Yes but releasing these guys instead of waiting for a complete surrender and withdrawal by us increases the chances of our guys getting killed. Oh and make no mistake about it Obama is surrendering to his radical Muslim buddies.

    I am afraid once we leave there will be a bloodbath of Afghans who supported us. They are not ready to take over.....

    Unlike Vietnam, Afghanistan is landlocked and there will be no millions of Afghan Boat People fleeing Afghanistan like what happened to those South Vietnamese who were friendly to American soldiers during the Vietnam War and had to flee for their lives after the North occupied Saigon.

    And those 4,800 troops who will be forced to remain there. Leaving these men behind is just looking for trouble, much as was predicted in Benghazi. This notion of Obama's 'no man left behind' policy only serves to highlight again his lying ways.

    What happened to the "Navy Pride" that just 10 days ago was on this site proclaiming that Obama's big mistake was that he didn't get him released sooner? Oops....I guess the Limbaugh talking points hadn't made it to him yet.....

A better comparison would be dealing with a defeated and occupied Germany...because even though there are terror attacks going on even today in Afghanistan, terror attacks were going on in Germany for quite some time after we defeated her. We have occupied Afghanistan, and we occupied Germany...and we allowed many thousands of Germans - many of whom almost certainly believed strongly in the Nazi ideal - to go home. But we're not doing the same for the Afghans because the Republicans are afraid of what they might do.

    But that's the real difference between what we were then and what the Right is today. Then, we did not let fear of what somebody might do rule our actions. Today, our Right does.
