Obama places a bullseye on American soldiers backs

Captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was traded for five Gitmo Taliban detainees. Now – these were not just a bad guys suspected of a wee bit of terrorist activities. No – these guys were the worst of the worse. In fact, the Taliban has tried to get them released for close to a decade. These guys have been considered extremely high risk detainees and believed that if ever released would pose a threat to wage war against the United States.

To put this in as simplest terms as possible: The Obama Administration negotiated with terrorists and now every American soldier has a bullseye on their back. That’s right – terrorist organizations around the world now know that if they capture a US soldier they may be able to gain a negotiating position they just didn’t have before.

What is unbelievable is how right out in the open this Administration is in their actions. Look at the pathetic amount of attention the VA has received and even after campaign promises to create a better and more streamlined experience for our veterans. The American people should be protesting in the streets over the actions of this government.

I just saw a Facebook post that read, “This administration is displaying a very dangerous incompetence.”

Understatement of the Year.

I am beginning to think the Obama Administration is capable of most anything.

  1. I was not in the military, so I hope my question isn’t out of place. But, have you ever heard of the Taliban, AlQuida, Jihadists holding another American solider for 5 years? I seem to remember some disturbing videos they could not wait to air, videos that showed death. Have the Muslim extremists suddenly become kinder? Or, does something just stink to high Heaven about this whole thing?

  2. Lee it really does smell.
    It may come to light that he cooperated and assisted the Taliban and there is no way we can count the men that may have died because of his cooperation. His knowledge of troop stength, FOB location, tactics, strategy, communication intel, and such.
    He may be free, but he will live in fear and under guard for the rest of his life.
    As far as Bergdahls father, read the UK telegraph about the story of him in the Rose garden with Obama. He quoted the Koran in Pashtun quite precisely. And got a hug from Obama.
    Petition your DC representatives for a “petition of redress”. We are completely upside down!

  3. What reality does this administration live in? They claim they didn’t negotiate, that this won’t give another reason to the terrorists to grab Americans, that Bergdahl served with honor & distinction and that these released terrorists “somehow” won’t be a future threat!

    You can cage a rattlesnake for biting someone but when you let it out… it’s still a rattlesnake.

  4. What I want to know is how did this guy get promoted to sergeant? The news reports indicate he was a PFC when he disappeared. Did some moron decide to promote him during the 5 years he was absent, even though it appears he deserted?

    • TXM1836 –

      Possibly one of our military readers can comment on this. From my understanding there are military bylaws that awarded the increase in rank automatically. Not sure – good question.

  5. I would say what is going on is unbelievable, but that would deny what is actually happening in this country under Obama. This morning I called my Congressman’s local and Washington office to make my feelings about this guy and why we haven’t done anything about a Marine jailed in Mexico. I also want an investigation into whether any laws were broken in this prisoner trade.

  6. This will help accelerate the trade, turnover and subsequent release of all Gitmo prisoners back to the battlefield. I expect the “Blind Sheik” to be traded soon. Curious the senior undercover intel chief in the area was “accidentally” outed just two days prior to the trade. Future kidnap victim? Trading asset?

    • Elvis –

      Glad to see you are still alive and kick’n.

      I suspect the negative effects the story is having will likely eliminate the chances of it happening again. But with Obama who knows?

  7. Yes, it is typical to get increases in rank while a POW. It’s not required, but based on their time in they come up for promotions along with everyone else and that is the typical course of action. A POW (or their family) also continues to receive whatever allowances they were receiving at time of capture, so you can imagine situations where they might be getting an off base housing allowance and other oddities.

    I actually can sympathize with the situation where someone ends up in a situation where they’re scared, disagree with the orders being handed down that are putting them at grave risk, they don’t see a way out, etc. That being said, you man up and finish the commitment you made. You don’t put other’s at risk. This guy was an idiot, he was planning on hiking to China and defecting or something – Darwin’s law should have sorted him out already. It’s kind of like the stupid kid in California who got drunk and killed 4 people and got off due to “Affluenza” – sure, he probably didn’t go out that day intending to harm others, but he did, and he should frankly be put down for it. This guy put his own selfish interest first and caused multiple deaths of good soldiers who were trying to find him – at the risk of sounding to harsh, I think he should be executed.

    Obama trading him for 5 high value prisoners defies all logic.

    • Well said Dark Space. I sat dumbfounded last night trying to put some sort of logic behind the deal. The only one I came up with and I have not heard anywhere else – that the terrorists from Gitmo were turned and are now on our side as informants. Now – I do not really believe that is what happened but that would make sense.

      Insanity.

  8. I agree with you 100% Has anyone besides me written to their reps in Washington letting them know how much this pisses me off ?
    Robert W

  9. John and Robert and all- yes I will call and write to my rep. re this foolish dealing with the terrorists.I was sick when I dObama say theres a slight chance these Taliban may try to hurt Americans.Is he living in La La Land -or trying to PURPOSEFULLY
    kick down America? NO negotiations means NO. If they were to negotiate why wasnt it one for one?
    We rarely travel but have noticed no Bibles in motels.I urge us all to complain to the motel chains about his. (I usually bring my own but its the principal of this issue)
    After planting most of my garden this am we had a severe thunder storm that brough HAIL !!! UGH.Poor tomatoes and peppers that I had planted from seed. Good for the other
    seeds though. Arlene

  10. Rourke, your feeling dumbfounded is understandable, as is the need to know the logic behind it…. it’s a hopeless search, no logic will be found. I have thought long and hard on what drives Obama, what makes him do the things he does? I have come to the conclusion that although he often seems it, he isn’t evil, he is a product of the progressive movement, a Keynesian, a totalitarian, a true believer. He is also incompetent and ill equipped to deal with the responsibilities his popularity and silver tongue have gleaned. He is also a politician willing to say and do anything to win.

    You can imagine now how bewildered and confused and even desperate Obama and the other progressives have become … nothing has worked… They had the congress and the presidency, the oceans would recede, the planet would heal. Peace and harmony would spread around the world and a new prosperity based on fairness and equality would lift up us all… FAIL! You can see the desperation in their actions and hear it in their lies, which are now aimed at their fellow zealots and the stupid…. they’re all they have left.

    Obama was supposed to be a game changer and I believe history will view him that way, though not in the light he had hoped. The Obama years will be viewed as a dangerous failed experiment, a costly yet valuable lesson that America would be wise never to repeat.

    We have 30 months to go, 30 long months…. but you don’t need a weatherman to know what way the winds blowing…. and I think it’s finally at our backs…

    Hoping for change… John G.

  11. John G -good thoughts.I agree. I just e mailed my own NYS and other states Rep.
    Sen . and Congress -we MUST impeach Obama now ! He has broken the law by NOT contacting
    Congress before releasing any prisoners from Guantamino (sp?).He broke our national policy
    to NEVER bargain with terrorists.Kelly covered this well on Fox news tonight.
    Theres another serious issue the Democrats are pushing.A proposal to alter our free speech by creating this ” 1-A ” which would limit everyones First Amendments rights. We have a lot at stake at this moment-lets spread the world near and far to win these two battles a.s.a. p. Arlene
    PS. Even Feinstein said the President should have followed the proper protocal and that he has broken the law. ( maybe there is some hope after all)

  12. Hopefully they were implanted with a remote explosive device to be discharged when they get together with their fellow terrorists.

  13. Arlene-
    The Gideons put the bibles in motels, not the motels. You should contact them if you find a motel without bibles and they will supply them at no charge. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gideons_International

    I think its great they’re usually there, but don’t think there is any “principal” being violated when they’re not – not everyone that stays in motel has the same belief system as you or I.

  14. Tim, As
    more details emerge I believe we will see deeper collaberation between the Sargent,his father and the Tailbans.
    Dark Space, Yes I understand and respect others belief systems and I usually bring my own Bible and spiritual reading.I will take your advice and check with the Gideons-and the motel to see what their policy is.We need to keep as many Judeo-Christian signs of faith as possible as we are in a war with Terrorists on every level. Arlene

  15. Arlene, I sympathize and share your desire to impeach our now disillusioned & dejected president but alas, it won’t happen. His hazelnut colored skin makes him far to important an historic figure for impeachment to ever be considered, and to be honest I think I agree with that thought. Impeachment would tear the country apart and would do more long term damage than suffering through the next 30 months and long term damage he is committing.

    It’s true that on the most basic of his oaths of office -to faithfully execute the laws of the land- he has failed, not just miserably but purposely. We still imagine ourselves a nation of laws, not of men. This is not merely an article of faith but a bedrock principle of the United States Constitution. Personally I would be satisfied seeing his reign end with impeachment, and taking into account the breadth of damage he has done, his toes dangling a foot from the ground… suspended by the rope around his broken neck… but I suspect that with this I will remain unsatisfied. To the unknowing this will seem a somewhat harsh punishment…. O well…

    I think I can take comfort in his failures, after all he is doing irreversible damage to his brand and to the progressive movement…. I’d bet it continues over the next 30 months. In 2 recent polls he can’t muster more than 38% approval on any of the most important issues of our country… the economy, healthcare, foreign affairs and so forth. Oh how it must eat at him that the main target of his blame and excuses -George Bush- has higher approval ratings and is held in higher esteem and trust than he is.

    Obama, his legacy and his party now suffer from their own relentless incompetence, which has morphed from “suspected” to “unmistakable”. Unfortunately they will not suffer alone, the rest of us must suffer along with them….

  16. J.G. You seem to see a light at the end of that tunnel. Remember that just might be a train! These maniacs are far from done…do you really think that they are gonna throw in the towel after all of their patient years of corruption.
    D.

  17. D., I have only a short term confidence. I believe that for the near term we have some opportunities to begin to set things right again. Depending on what we do with these opportunities lies the future. This confidence comes from 2 things; 1. The public’s reaction to the totalitarians overreach and incompetence. 2. History…. I’ll explain.

    “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.”
    – Norman Thomas, American socialist- 1920something

    Liberals have, since the turn of the 20th century been working to take over, they have had some success. In fact many people don’t realize how close they came to complete success. From 1940 on they carried the day, but the people grew tired of the Carter malaise and elected Reagan, who then saved the conservative movement. If not for Reagan’s election it would already be to late. I believe we are at a similar point, the people are weary and ready again to elect a true conservative… I hope.

    No, the totalitarians won’t give up, they never have. For over a hundred years, the Progressives have plotted and planned a Marxist takeover of our country. They have positioned themselves in every position of power imaginable… from our legal system, banks, politics, schools and the media. As a battle plan, theirs is long and comprehensive. Patience is a weapon utilized over time and they are masterful at it. But I believe our side is finally catching on. I think we will win some important elections in the near future. Some national elections and we will add more state governors to the 30 we have now. These are risky times, but they are not without hope.

  18. John Gault- Right on !!!The John Birch society predicted that America would fail if it followed socialist policies.
    I agree re the elections-more conservatives will win.
    Some very liberal people I know are now upset with Obama-so yes theres hope !!!
    Arlene
