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

    Evil, no doubt about it. Last two years of his term and you will see him turn on us with a vengeance.

    I am speculating here, but from my time in the field and from what little information I've come across as this story pans out, I'm betting this guy is an intelligence officer. I'm definitely not buying into the idea that he's just an infantryman who abandoned his post.
    Be skeptical of anyone who wears a political label - party or ideology - with pride. Most of our problems are because people love to "debate" (it isn't debate, but they pretend it is), but are not interested in developing solutions. Solutions require empathy, thought, and compromise, and most folks aren't interested.

    Obama breaks our laws more than Al Capone. This could hopefully break the back of the dems come election time. He goes to West point, denies help to vets and then makes the single most atrocious hostage trade deal in American history, not for a soldier rather for a deserter and possibly a traitor. Why only 5 for 1, why not 500 for 1? Let's listen to the dems squirm out of this one as they already tried to do last Sunday.

    Obama is just incompetent.

    The job of POTUS is larger than Obama and Obama knew it by February of 2009.

    Incompetent and DANGEROUS.

    Shame on the Dems for being so naive, but just wait. They'll being us another unqualified candidate in 2016. They've lost the ability to see past their party line.

    No man left behind is a motto that comes to mind.

    But lying is never good, so that army should have told the truth.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    I'm afraid your speculation is little more than wishful thinking. At least according to reports from those who served with him.

    He's a deserter who sympathizes with those who would destroy America.

    Yes, Obama played that 'no soldier left behind' card this morning. Doubtful America fell for it from him either.

    I question the reliability of those reports. At any rate, if he is an intelligence officer, it's unlikely anyone in his unit knew, save for maybe 1 or 2 individuals. At least in my experience. I worked intelligence for 9 years before anyone I directly served with knew.

    But again, speculation. He could be a traitor. I just think this story is too fishy. But I also freely admit I don't like believing it, so there's my bias.
