    Freeing an accused deserter and giving away the highest level Taliban planners who killed thousands? Easy peasy, but I'd still suggest not to.
    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.

    He wont be impeached.

    I mean Boehner would have to schedule time between his crying fits to do something like that, and he's been hiding anyway.

    Let Obama stay, he's his worse enemy, and hew the Democrat partys worst enemy too.

    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    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?
    The confederate army wore uniforms. They were not unlawful combatants. The confederate army had a visible chain of command with badges of rank. The confederate army was an army. And the rebellious south was a nation. They acted as a nation and they were defeated as a nation.

    You are wrong. You are, I am sure, a die-hard Obama supporter.

    No. He is the nation's worst enemy. He needs to be impeached, then arrested, and tried.

    Why do I get the impression that you know very little about the military? Do you believe promotions are automatic?

    I am interested in hearing why he was promoted. There is a classified report about him. I want to see it. The traitor-in-chief can release it tomorrow.

    And as practical matter you also do understand that no former President will likely ever see the inside of a jail.
    Really? How many war criminals are usually swapped for each deserter?

    Die hard? Nope. Did vote for him simply because I liked Romney even less. Didn't like Bush 43 either - his starting the Iraq war was criminal. Last President I liked was Bush 41. Don't see much different between most democrats and republicans. The all pretty much suck in my book.

    I just happen to like intellectual honesty.

    The Confederate States were not, and could not be, a nation in the eyes of Lincoln's government. They were essentially insurrectionists. The fact that they wore uniforms is irrelevant to that fact.

    But that still doesn't answer the essential point. You, and most people who complain about the releases of those prisoners, make all kinds of noise about them going back into the field and killing our soldiers as if this is something novel that hasn't happened hundreds, if not thousands of times in the past.

    Nice dodge. Are you doubting that we haven't been doing prisoner exchanges for hundreds of years and that other nations have done it for thousands of years before that?
