    I still disagree with the illegal part, but it is refreshing to see CNN finally attack the president on something instead if protect him.

    I would have preferred a rescue, but then I don't know enough of the facts. The setting matters. It would be an international nightmare if such a rescue occurred in an urban setting.

    Supporting the troops suddenly became a lot less popular once Obama started doing it.

    I beg to differ with you LOP. While you make the case that the laws are illegal passed by Congress, many could make that claim on several issues. Nevertheless, currently they are the LAW.
    Obama did not make a wise trade. PFC Bergdahl (he was promoted to sergeant while being held captive) is well documented that he was a disserter and good honorable paratroopers lost their lives searching for this bastard. Various sources from Bergdahl’s unit, the 501st Airborne Infantry are reporting in around the Web with this information:


    PFC Matthew Michael Martinek, Staff Sgt. Kurt Robert Curtiss, SSG Clayton Bowen, PFC Morris Walker, SSG Michael Murphrey, 2LT Darryn Andrews, were all KIA from our unit who died looking for Bergdahl. Many others from various units were wounded or killed while actively looking for Bergdahl.

    Here’s Article 85 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the statutory regulation dealing with desertion:


    (c) Any person found guilty of desertion or attempt to desert shall be punished, if the offense is committed in time of war, by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct, but if the desertion or attempt to desert occurs at any other time, by such punishment, other than death, as a court-martial may direct.

    And the damning evidence against PFC Bergdahl from those in his unit is being made known via the Internet. He made no secret of his disillusionment with America, sending emails to his parents, one of which contained this statement, “The system is wrong. I am ashamed to be an american. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools... I am sorry for everything here”
    A fellow trooper, Jason Fry, has gone on the record that Bergdahl told him, "If this deployment is lame, I'm just going to walk off into the mountains of Pakistan."

    So justify anyway you can the release of 5 rabid Taliban who will be out soon orchestrating more killings of Americans in exchange for what is shaping up to be one lame ass dissserter.

    The ACA should have had some support by the GOP. The mandate (the only thing conservatives hate about Obamacare) was a free market solution developed by the Heritage Foundation and adopted by Romney before it was implemented by Obama.

    What do you expect the Dems to do when the GOP walks away from their own ideas?

    The American prisoner converted to islam and is a jihadist. So Obama let 6 jihadists go, not just five! How groovy is that!

    I see you do not understand the constitution. Look up separation of powers.

    Good or bad trade, I think it is worse that now they will look for taking more Americans as hostages/prisoners. The president has acknowledged he will barter with terrorists.

    Please notice, I never said it was a good trade. I only said it was within his rights as president.

    I think you are not serious about this debate. Maybe you watch too much Homeland?

    Please define 'illegal law' and post links.

    Of course not. Neither side of the Republocrats actually want to open up that can of worms. They just want to point fingers and feign righteous indignation.
