    Re: Kerry: 'Offensive' to leave an American behind

    My problem with this whole event has nothing to do with getting the US soldier back. It has to do with how it was done.

    Of course we don't leave anyone behind, except when we do, and we have, because it isn't always possible.

    What Obama did, has weakened this country, and put all the lives of civilians and military alike that are overseas at risk of abduction for ransom, or worse.

    This has nothing to do with getting a guy back, but everything to do with how it was done.

    Please stop, both sides that is, using Bergdahl as an excuse to either make the trade, or not make the trade. No honorable person in the military would agree with having their life saved in trade for those that these five terrorists will surely kill now that they've been released.

    Bergdahl didn't make that choice. Obama did. We have no idea if Bergdahl would have agreed or not agreed given the choice? No one knows, but Bergdahl. It wasn't offered to him to choose. It was Obama that chose for him and for the nation. It was Obama's job to choose, and he chose against the safety of many for the safety of one, if not for some other reason that we know nothing about.

    Please, stop using this young man as a political football, when the true debate should be regarding freeing five terrorists, and doing so without following the law requiring that the people's representatives in Congress be informed and given a chance to overrule the choice.

    If Congress had been informed, and they agreed to this, I would be just as upset with them.

    I've broken my promise to myself to not comment in this for a few days, but I had to interject in this thread in an attempt to put some sanity into the discussion.

    This isn't about Bergdahl or getting a soldier back. It's about endangering the country and it's people. And, that should be enough for anyone to write novels about on here.

    Kerry is the single greatest disappointment od all politicians. While he did serve in Nam and did toss his medals I thought he would at least have some backbone to stand up to his own party when he thought them to be wrong. Instead he lives as a spineless drip deceit and cowardice.

    This whole thing is strange.

    Even Sen. Fenistein thinks it stinks.

    Re: Kerry: 'Offensive' to leave an American behind

    The white house talking point is that we don't leave our military behind. We know that and we all agree with that. No point in making that the argument. We're all on board. The issue is the timing and methodology and rose garden photo op. There is no excuse for any of that.

    Re: Kerry: 'Offensive' to leave an American behind

    I wonder if Kerry will think it is 'offensive' if/when innocent Americans are killed by one of the men Obama released in trade?

    Sure, you make reasonable costs to get your soldiers home...but not at ALL costs.

    I wonder what all of the other officers and men in Kerry's swift-boat squadron had to say ?

    Well we can go here and find out. -> WinterSoldier.com - <p>Swift Boat Veterans
    LOL....are you seriously going to post a link to the discredited Swift Boat liars? Some of whom came out and admitted that they lied and it was nothing more than a political smear? Too funny....

    The photo op was disgusting. I could not watch it.
