    Is there some written rule that everything quoted, the poster must be in agreement?
    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.

    It was released Hot News at the time.....so it was out early. Which is why I put up the Poll and I stated he deserted and have put up the material to show so.

    Indeed. So in an attempt at damage control for the VA scandal, he decided to trade a deserter for a bunch of thugs that America's military has been fighting for 15 years. What the hell is he thinking? And then he trots out this deserters hippy ass parents on tv.

    Oh, and its worse for him with the Afghanistan government over this as they didn't know about this exchange. Also.....since now the Taliban Leader we were hoping to get the rest of the Taliban to come to the negotiating table.....has now come up missing. He was in Qatar. Even his family is now wanting to know where he is.

    I just cant believe how inept our politicians are. You have one side arguing that "we don't know the truth about his dissapearence" and that "he was at deaths door". When clearly there are many indications that we know some evidence that he had deserted his post. And we have video clearly showing he walked on his own power to the helicopter. Hardly on deaths door by a long shot.

    Then you have the other side trying to politicize the fact that they released a bunch of bad guys without notifying congress properly. Which I think completely misses the concert of the average American. I don't think any voter really cares much about properly notifying them of a deal to bring him home.

    I think the average American is highly disturbed by the massive amount of evidence that this guy deserted his post.

    My personal curiosity is that if the reports are true that he was against the war in Afghanistan there is potential he not only deserted, but defected. Which if he did, he does not deserve the label of POW. Either way, I agree that he should be brought home, but if the evidence is to be believed, he should be brought home to face justice not a fanfare hero welcome.

    My concern is that the administration will try as hard as they can to cover the evidence of his possible defection because it would heavily damage them. There already seems to be attempt thru the media to try and ignore the evidence he may have defected.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Im ****ing pissed. And his little robot susan rice is out there saying he "served with distinction" and was "captured on the battlefield". He deserted, and he distinctly betrayed his nation, fellow soldiers, and those dead Americans who died looking for him, as well as those who died catching those taliban and AQ thugs. ****ing amazing.

    My sentiments exactly. If the story about Bergdahl's desertion turns out to be true... this will be Obama's legacy.

    Don't rush to judge - let's see what happens with the UCMJ investigation. The cats out of the bag and a few of his platoon mates have already gone on record the guy was a deserter. Let's see if Obama tries to cover this up too, or he does the right thing and lets the process go. Rice is a little puppet who will say anything Obama tells her to say - she lies like the rest of us breathe. I still a few doubts about the whole story of Bergdahl. There's more to this than we know right now.
