    The idea that Obama has committed treason is weapons-grade stupid.

    Cool. I am not surprised that you defend the traitor. How much more aid and comfort could he provide than to return their top people?
    Impeach the SOB. Then arrest him, try him, convict him. I want the death penalty. You just want him to remain your king. Got it.

    Treason is not a word that I would use to describe his actions in this case. I would, though, characterize those actions as "tactically symbolic".

    I truly believe that he believes he is poking a stick in the eye of everyone who supported our military actions post 9-11 and by making a defacto hero out of a deserter he is saying that the real heroes are the ones who refused to support our post 9-11 policies.

    You can't tell me that he didn't know every single little piece of dirt on this guy before he agreed to this deal.

    Because he's not a deserter - yet. He's simply AWOL. To be guilty of desertion he has to have intended to be away from his post permanently, which I don't think they can ascertain without actually talking to him. It also requires a court martial.

    You do know that we've been doing prisoner exchanges with the enemy since the Revolution don't you? If those weren't treasonous acts, if those didn't give aid and comfort to the enemy how is this any different?

    And as practical matter you also do understand that no former President will likely ever see the inside of a jail.

    Taliban prisoner swap was ILLEGAL claims GOP as former federal prosecutor says it could lead to Obama's impeachment

    The president ignored a law which he signed last year requiring him to notify Congress 30 days before releasing anyone from Guantanamo Bay
    The Obama administration never told Capitol Hill until after Bergdahl was in American custody and the US Taliban prisoners were preparing to leave
    A former federal prosecutor told MailOnline that while the 30-day-notice law is probably unconstitutional, putting enemy combatants back in a position to harm Americans is an impeachable offense
    A White House insider said Obama administration officials didn't anticipate how controversial Bergdahl's rescue would be, and compared it to the 1981 release of 52 US hostages in Iran
    If there is a God.

    Time will tell what the military will classify him as, but he seems to have given aid to the enemy and cost US service men's lives.

    He was suspect of desertion and treason almost immediately according to his platoon critics. You don't need a court martial not to promote someone under suspicion.
