Ah ok so releasing 5 cleared poeple from Guantanemo under the Bush adminisntration is the same as paying 135 to an ACTIVE terrorists organization.What you seem to be avoiding is Obama's administration set a precedent - that was to negotiate a prisoner exchange, e.g., randsom, for a low level US military member who may or may not have abandoned his post and went AWOL or deserted. That has been lauded by many as the "right" thing to do. So, now we have a US citizen who was held for ransom and a deal was not made. Why was that the "right" thing to do and it is directly contrary to the former precedent. Are US military MORE valuable than US Citizens and if so - why?
To answer your question - since the Obama administration paid a ransom of 5 taliban leaders for Bergdahl - he should have had no problem with a paltry 135 million dollars for a US citizen and news reporter.... I fail to see the clear difference here. Explain it to me.
Your comments are beyond pathetic and show a clear agenda to be Anti-Obama no matter what. I've criticized him over and over again but even I see that leaving a service member in the hands of terorrists is wrong.
But hey, that doesn't matter because you are for burning America as long as a Dem is president.
