    I don't hear the rightists quoting Krauthammer on this one.
    Nor the usual Hyper-partisan Rep. Labrador, whose congressional district Bergdahl lives in .

    Exactly this, and if people read up on the situation Obama himself said he was acting with executive power, which is completely constitutional.

    Then perhaps you should try constitutional conservatives. We don't like establishment republicans nor statist democrats either.

    I just happen to like intellectual honesty.
    Maybe so but it has not prevented you from being wrong.

    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.
    Actually not.

    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.
    Whether they kill soldiers or murder other innocent people is not relevant. They have murdered innocent people in the past and they will murder innocent people in the future.

    So Obama, in addition to giving aid and comfort to our enemy in war time is also an accomplice to all of their future murders. So Obama must be impeached, arrested, tried and executed for his crimes.

    Not a dodge. That is the point.

    I think this kid was very impressionable, and I think his Father helped to coach him right off that base and into the first Taliban outpost.

    If you read the E-mails between him and his Father it's like his Dad was building him up, affirming his twisted and growing anti US sentiments.

    Once the Taliban got him, he was all too willing to help them in anyway possible.

    I'm not trying to justify what he did, and he should pay for the crime of desertion and maybe worse but it seems this kid was pretty easy to manipulate.

    In which positive and negative ways.
    My Father had more respect for the Israeli military soldier than any in the World.

    Is that all you have? Ask Israel? Did they swap war criminals for a deserter?

He was one that was briefed on Bergdahl by members of the administration last night. He said he had to be very careful what he could state only that the questions he directed during the meeting go to the heart of the same things listed in this file obtained by Fox and he was assured that there was nothing of the sort to be concerned over. He went on to say if the things in this file turn out to be true then the administration has lied to him and everyone that was being briefed last night. Stay tuned.
