    Thanks! Looks like more detainees in Guantanamo will be leaving soon, doesn't it? Who can resist the pleas of a woman with a young child?

    Yes it does. These 5 being released was the "rip the bandaid off quickly" to get over the pain. The rest will be easy by comparison ... this isn't about Bergdahl, or any other American being held, it's not about law, it's not about doing the right thing, it's about Obama's legacy. Period.
    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.

    Democrat Dianne Feinstein: Obama Broke The Law With Bergdahl Swap....




    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss said the administration violated the law by failing to address serious concerns they had about the deal to swap Bergdahl for five Taliban detainees. Chambliss said he had not had a conversation with the White House about a possible exchange for at least 18 months.

    "It comes to us with some surprise and dismay that the transfers went ahead with no consultation, totally not following law," Feinstein told reporters following a closed door meeting. "And in an issue with this kind of concern to a committee that bears the oversight responsibility, I think you can see that we're very dismayed about it ." .....snip~

    Slander is not erroneous. Slander involves intent.

If they start stall tactics then we will know that the last institution has now been corrupted.

As people find out that 5 American killers of innocent civilians were swapped for an American deserter this administration tried to depict as a man who served honorably, more and more people will become outraged. This goes beyond partisan ideology. This goes to the lack of National Security currently on display in this administration. This goes to the willingness of this administration to break the law for political gain. They thought by releasing Bergdahl it would bring fanfare. Instead, it was met with Vets who know what really happened coming forth at the risk of violating a gag order to tell the American people the truth. This administration while trying to use Bergdahl's health as an excuse to break laws in order to recover Bergdahl was blown out of the water when the Taliban produced to NBC full coverage of the exchange and Bergdahl and very much looked to be in very good health. So sit and spin if you like, the majority can smell the rat.
    Berghdahl has not been convicted of treason as someone stated earlier. He is a deserter. He should be tried by a military tribunal for desertion and thrown in the brig. I don't think it was reasonable to make any attempt to 'rescue' him. He took his chances when he deserted, pretty much like any other lone American would do in the middle east. THEN to top it off, he converted to islam. This is well documented. Whether he is a radical muslim remains to be seen, but he was in the hands of radicals, and he converted under the tutelage of radicals. If there is a pot going around I'll make my bet on him being a radical.

    So, if Obama's intent was to release as many radicals as he could in one fell swoop, he managed to let go of 6 this go around. He, himself, signed into law the requirement that he consult with Congress about it and he broke that law. Yes, that is an impeachable offense. But then so was his sleeping through Benghaze.
