He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    There were rumors about this guy being a deserter long before the deal was struck, and certainly the president had to be aware of them also. Unless, he just read about it in the morning paper--which seems to be the way he gets most of his information...
    It's a shame that rumors don't actually mean much. Did you know there is a rumor about Obama being a Muslim? Real serious stuff.

    Well, I thought it was pretty obvious that we shouldn't trust your obama to make decisions in our best interests.

    He didn't. He brought back a soldier that was supposedly giving information to the Taliban. If it took 5 of the 1000s of terrorists running around Afghanistan to get that done, I'm alright with that. Your feelings on the matter are irrelevant.

    You are going to find this hard to believe, but I don't disagree with that. Even if it were well known that the man was a deserter, negotiating his release was probably the right thing to do. The problem is, Obama went about it the wrong way. He was required, by law I believe, to notify congress in advance of any releases from Gitmo. He didn't. He should have conferred with people like McCain and others about a potential swap before pulling the trigger. This was one instance where he might have gotten people on his side had he bothered to try.

    Except this rumor turned out to be true now didn't it. And the point was that the possibility of him being a deserter was not something that came out AFTER the release. The military knew exactly what happened and were likely the source of the rumors. Obama was aware of them, or should have been.

    The two charges news conference is going on now. No discussion about the 2014 investigation will be discussed to keep impartiality during the USMCJ. An article 32 preliminary hearing (like a Grand Jury hearing) will be coming. IF found guilty on both charges, a maximum incarceration of life in prison could be levied. No death penalty was discussed so that is not an option according to the press conference.

    This is quite a difference and contrast from Susan Rice, National Security Adviser saying Bergdahl “served the United States with honor and distinction.”
    Indeed, if he's convicted of anything, a big embarrassment to the Obama administration.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Referring to the twice-elected president of the United States as "your Obama" doesn't make you appear clever or witty.
