    The Illegal Bergdahl Deal: Sordid Details, Troubling Implications.....

    The evidence of his desertion is overwhelming. Other facts suggest that he may have crossed a line into active collaboration with the enemy.

    White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice declared that his service was marked by "honor and distinction" on national television.

    the Obama official at the center of these political machinations is the now-infamous Ben Rhodes, of course. The administration denies that Al-Marri's early release from federal prison -- which we wrote about just last week -- was tied to any quid pro quo. Why should Americans believe that claim?.....snip~

    Oh, I agree. I just find it incredibly funny that now everyone is calling for Obama's head when a multitude of Republicans bashed Obama for not doing everything he could to bring the guy back. Obama did everything he could, and it brought results. Continuing to bash Obama over doing what Republicans wanted just makes them look hypocritical.

    "What" Its taken you six years to figure out those in an opposite party would look to try and catch BO and his transparent Administration in a Catch 22? Would talk **** about him just like the left does with those on the Right. Blame him like he blames Republican for all his woes and failures.

    So now that you are up to speed.....how does it help Bo peep with this situation and what came out of his and his teams mouth?



    The Governement Accounting Office also issued a report last August which concluded that the administration did in fact violate the law when it failed to notify Congress about the impending prisoner swap as required by law.....snip~

    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.”
    Gee, who saw that coming?

    Stopped here. If this is a catch-22 for Obama, and you admit it, there is nothing to respond to. Republicans are being hypocrites after calling for Obama to do everything he could.

    Pointing at the other party when you've got nothing else to argue makes you look like you don't have an argument. You've already admitted that Republicans want to play gotcha with Obama on this issue. How do you feel about it?

    I think the exchange was a horrible idea...but do think they should have negotiated to get him back. Maybe offered a case of pork free SPAM or 6 herds of goats...something they would really appreciate.

    They should not have traded terrorists and they should not have done so under the pretense that our lost hero is now home. They SHOULD have said...we bring ALL servicemen home...even the ones that will stand trial for desertion.
