I still haven't read the answer for that, by the way, because a one-for-one swap would have made more sense to people. Then we read that the terrorists were to stay in the country they were deported to, but they didn't even do that, but left at will. That was the icing on the cake for most people, since those terrorists, in effect, gave this Country the one-finger salute in gratitude for giving them their freedom! Nice, huh?

    Oh yeah they did Lady P.....some even changed what they had said originally as the issue dragged out.



    News of the desertion charges thrusts the administration's terrorist-releasing policies back into the spotlight, raising fresh questions:

    Before he was released from a U.S. maximum-security prison last week, a confessed al Qaeda sleeper agent was offered up in a potential prisoner swap that would have freed two Americans held abroad. The Daily Beast has learned that the proposal was floated in July 2014 to the then-U.S. ambassador in Qatar by an individual acting on behalf of that country’s attorney general. According to two individuals with direct knowledge of the case, the proposition was made shortly after the Obama administration traded five Taliban fighters for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Those fighters were also sent to Qatar, where they’re to remain under government watch until later this year. U.S. officials have said they’re at risk of plotting further attacks against the United States. The proposed swap involving the al Qaeda agent, Ali Saleh Al-Marri, raises troubling questions about whether the Bergdahl trade opened a kind of Pandora’s box, signaling to foreign governments that they can pressure the United States to make concessions on terrorism by trading American prisoners abroad for dangerous extremists held in the United States.....snip~

    That's about as dishonest an attack as you will find anywhere.

    That's like you being told a little girl from Virginia was kidnapped by terrorists, and you demanding that the government meet the demands of the terrorists to get her released, only to find out when they did meet the demands, that the kidnappers were actually her father and grandparents, she was never kidnapped, was never in danger, and the government knew that was her father and his family the entire time but never bothered to tell anyone.

    Geez... Why is it that so many progressives like you willingly lie and exaggerate to attack the people you disagree with politically? Is your ideology really that shallow and weak that fooling people has become necessary in order for your beliefs to gain acceptance?

    LOL....until you got your FoxNews talking points, you were all over here condemning Obama for not bringing him home sooner. What a difference a day makes in the right-wing world.

    Re: Bowe Bergdahl, once missing U.S. soldier, charged with desertion

    The DOD had not issued any charges of desertion on him until NOW. Until he was convicted of desertion...its our duty to bring ALL our servicemen and women home.

    Sad that people can't get this.

    whats really sad.. is a president can use outright disinformation to trick the country into a war (costing billions of dollars and thousands of lives) knowing full well that the information was wrong. and some turn a blind eye..

    But then they go bat crap crazy because the next president brings a soldier back..and after brining him back.. the doj charges that one soldier with desertion..

    No wonder this country is screwed up... no perspective at all...

    How, exactly, was Bergdahl treated like a "returning hero"?

    "Desertion" and "treason" are not synonyms.

    Come on, you know better. The mainstream media NEVER reports on anything that might be construed as negative for Obama, except, of course, when they do.

    Bergdahl's own GOP Representative from Idaho, Raul Labrador, not only defended him but went after the rest of Idaho's GOPs for trashing Bergdahl .

    Then it would appear that Mr. Labrador owes a lot of people apologies.
