    What the other funny part is. The Taliban isn't the ruling government of Afghanistan. Yet we are talking to them like they are. Imagine that!
    I've been reading pieces posted on the web of those who "served" with Bergdahl. They paint this guy as a dissenter and the blood of those lost looking for him is on his head.

    This has to be the first we ever negotiated with a terrorist organization instead of a government for the release of an American. Damn if that doesn't set a new all time low for precedence in the future. Can't think of anything that would empower the enemy more! Assholes.

    Heya V. Yeah I know.....I put up a thread catching BO again with his own words. Naturally the left around here will avoid it.

    In reading up on this, its infuriating. The wiki article on Bergdahl also states diverted resources used in searching for him was the reason a combat outpost was delayed in being built, which led to another 8 Americans being killed. I remember when that happened, one of my Paramedic students had a friend killed there. Im pissed.

    Here's something worse... inviting the deserter's parents to join the president at the white house for a photo op.

    Is Barack Obama evil or just plain stupid? That's the question of the day.

    That's a good question, which I suspect won't be answered anytime soon.

    The Taliban is the ruling government of those who do what the Taliban tells them to do.

    The Afghanistan government was shifting towards democracy in the 1950s and 60s before the Taliban took over. Women could work, become educated, dress casually and use many of the modern day services that men could.

    Makes me wonder WTH we didn't stomp these roaches into sand long before now. Guess we didn't see that slippery slope lefties claim doesn't exist.
    you understand that the Taliban come into existence in 1990s right, you understand that many on the American right wanted to work with the Taliban right? You understand that conservatives attacked President Clinton when he wanted to stop the Taliban right? No....more's the pity.

    Heya SN.....they may be the ones behind the scenes. But they are not the ruling authority.

    Currently after they held their Election over there, evidently someone on BO's team failed to inform them of this exchange that was taking place this week.

    This story has exploded on the Internet. Drudge is all over it

    Reintegration: Military hides Bergdahl from public view...
    FLASHBACK: 'Converted to Islam And Taught Captors Bomb Making Skills'...
    NYTIMES: Left note explaining desertion before going AWOL...
    Pentagon knew whereabouts but didn't risk rescue for 'deserter'...
    Never Officially Listed as POW...
    CHARGE: Soldiers died searching for him...
    Former fed prosecutor: Release of Gitmo terrorists impeachable offense...
    CHENEY: U.S. will 'pay a price'...
    Freed Taliban leaders given hero's welcome...
    Toobin: Obama 'Clearly Broke Law'...
    Three years since consulting Congress...
    FATHER: 'I am still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners'...
    Anger explodes...
    WAS HILLARY IN ON IT?

    Anymore it's as if this president and his administration makes another crap sandwich each day and expects us to eat it.
