    If it elevated to the point of probable cause, I would agree with you. Suspicion... no. I know it doesn't look good for him, but if he's guilty, he will be busted down to E-1 anyway.

    This was not a prisoner of war exchange. Obama gave aid and comfort to a terrorist organization by returning five of their top terrorists to the battlefield. In return he received a deserter who probably collaborated with the enemy. The deserter, his commander-in-chief and the attorney general need to be tried, and executed for treason in a time of war.

    These were unlawful combatants who will kill more human beings. These were not soldiers.

    So Holder, who is Obama's accomplice, needs to share a cell or a firing squad with the Chief perp. And the soldier turned deserter needs to be courts-martialed and executed. I suppose one question is should there be one firing squad or three?

    No - let him continue to **** up for the next two years please. Impeaching him only will give the lefty loons more "racist" labels to hand out. Obama and his administration is a walking abortive nightmare for Democrats. Is it too late to elect him again so Democrat policy gets set back 100 years and is ridiculed for another 100?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Correct. If executive power were not limited we would have a full on dictatorship. Then again............it's beginning to feel a lot like we actually do.

    We can agree to disagree. He is an evil monster who needs to pay for this crime against his nation and against innocent civilians everywhere. He needs to be executed for this heinous crime against all of humanity.

    The United States didn't recognize Jefferson Davis' government either. From that perspective the entire Confederate Army were unlawful combatants. Yet we swapped prisoners with them. Is Lincoln guilty of giving aid and comfort?


    And in any case it's a distinction wholly without merit. You speak as if released "legal combatants" didn't go back to their units and kill our soldiers.

    What's your axe to grind with Holder?

    Yeah, that's why, OR you guys impeach him for freeing a POW. Get real.

    If you're going to criticize it, criticize it honestly. The impeachment would be coming about due to him violating the law in an effort to free a POW. This is as dishonest as claiming Clinton was impeached for getting a blow job. When one is intentionally being dishonest and factually incorrect on an issue it highlights the weakness of their claim.
