Barack Obama Frees Top Taliban Commanders in Trade for Army Deserter

At the peak of the Veterans Affairs scandal and after a cool reception at West Point for Barack Obama's commencement speech  comes news of the release of Bowe Bergdahl in a prisoner exchange for 5 top leaders of the Taliban from Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba.  Despite the legal requirement that Congress be notified of Gitmo transfers and a no-negotiations with terrorist policy, Barack Obama and his administration went ahead with the prisoner swap anyway. A trade for 5 top terrorists for a deserter  raises a few questions.  Some background on Bowe Bergdahl can be found in the following article, with the excerpt taken to establish Bergdahl's state of mind before leaving his base.....

From Michael Hasting's  Rollingstone Article: America's Last Prisoner of War
On June 27th, he sent what would be his final e-mai­l to his parents. It was a lengthy message documenting his complete disillusionment with the war effort. He opened it by addressing it simply to "mom, dad." 
"The future is too good to waste on lies," Bowe wrote. "And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be american. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting." 
The e-mail went on to list a series of complaints: Three good sergeants, Bowe said, had been forced to move to another company, and "one of the biggest shit bags is being put in charge of the team." His battalion commander was a "conceited old fool." The military system itself was broken: "In the US army you are cut down for being honest... but if you are a conceited brown nosing shit bag you will be allowed to do what ever you want, and you will be handed your higher rank... The system is wrong. I am ashamed to be an american. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools." The soldiers he actually admired were planning on leaving: "The US army is the biggest joke the world has to laugh at. It is the army of liars, backstabbers, fools, and bullies......
- Bowe Bergdahl then walked away from base without his military gear and was 'captured' by the Taliban or their allies. Bowe Bergdahl has been gone for 5 years and has been a propaganda coup for the Taliban. His release on Saturday was great news for his family and has thrown the spotlight on Bowe's father Bob and his conduct, some of which can be found on Twitter.

Now check out the father Bob Bergdahl.....

 Barack Obama promised to close Guantanamo Bay prison in his first year of office and has failed because of heavy opposition. By not placing any more enemy combatants in Gitmo and slowly releasing all the prisoners under many guises, Barack Obama and the leftists may get their wish, all by bypassing Congress, again. It would appear that Barack Obama and the Bergdahl's conduct are placing the country in even greater danger.
