Skip to comments.Why did President Obama ransom Sgt. Bergdahl and what about Iran?

Is He stupid, out of touch, Preparing to close Gitmo, or did He just do His best to emulate Joe Btfspik? Does it augur well for a good outcome of the continuing Iran Scam?
I wrote an article about the ransoming of Sgt. Bergdahl on June 2nd and updated it through June 6th. The thrust of that article is that Sgt. Bergdahl must be tried by general court martial so that legally cognizable evidence (not opinion and not speculation) can be presented and made public. Unfortunately, for the reasons stated, I do not think that will happen. There has been more speculation since June 6th, but little if any significant, adequately verified and legally admissible evidence has become available since then.
Here's a YouTube video of a June 6th PJTV discussion about why "our" Commander in Chief ransomed Sgt. Bergdahl by returning five high-ranking Taliban commanders to active duty. The discussion includes Tammy Bruce, a conservative talk radio hostess and Ebony K. Williams, an attorney, radio show hostess and Democrat who voted for President Obama in 2008 and 2012. The consensus seems to be that He screwed up royally and appears to have acted for political reasons, hoping for popular approval. Ms. Williams' conclusion is that He is not necessarily evil but lives in an echo chamber, where He now receives undiluted support from His underlings regardless of what He wants to do or how incredibly incompetent or worse He will seem if He does it.
There are any number of other reasons why He may have acted as He did, including these:
He hates America and wants to
destroy transform her in His own image;
He hates the U.S. military and approves of Sgt. Bergdahl and others who also hate it;
He approves of and sides with Islamists;
His definitions of honorably and with distinction, as Susan Rice characterized Sgt. Bergdahl's behavior, are abnormal;
He is stupid and/or incompetent;
He hates reality and favors fantasy;
He is nuts;
He wants to help Vice President Biden seem competent by comparison;
All of the above;
None of the above.
There are doubtless other possibilities. What do you think?
The Iran Scam
Whatever may have been His reasons, they are important if for no reason other than that by ransoming a probable deserter or worse by freeing five extremely dangerous terrorists -- likely to result in the killing of honorable U.S. military personnel serving with distinction -- and the taking of more hostages, He may well have suggested the outcome of His dealings with Iran.
President Obama's emissaries are scheduled to meet with Iranian emissaries on Monday and Tuesday in Geneva.
TEHRAN Irans chief negotiator said Sunday that direct talks agreed between Tehran and Washington are essential, as discussions on his countrys disputed nuclear program are entering a serious phase.
. . . .
We have always had bilateral discussions with the United States in the margin of the P5+1 group discussions, but since the talks have entered a serious phase, we want to have separate consultations, said Abbas Araqchi, Irans chief negotiator in comments reported by state news agency IRNA.
. . . .
Araqchi said the talks with the US in Geneva will only address the nuclear issue, referring to Irans ballistic missile program that Washington had hoped to include in negotiations. [Emphasis added.]
The US delegation will be led by Deputy Secretary of State Bill Burns and Jake Sullivan, a White House adviser, previously part of a tiny team whose months of secret talks in Oman brought Iran back to the P5+1 negotiating table last year.
Having apparently agreed with Iran that its missile delivery systems development is none of the business of the P5 + 1 negotiators, what else will the Obama Administration agree is unworthy of discussion because it might undermine the Iran Scam? What does President Obama seek? The public approval of an amorphous "deal" that prevents Iran from having nukes -- or, if she has or gets them, from using them -- until after He leaves office in January of 2017? Peace in His time?
Until President Obama leaves office in January of 2017 we are unlikely to learn what happened in Geneva or its consequences for the P6 + 1 negotiations. We can expect Him to tell us only pleasant fairy stories. Reasons not to accept them will be deemed racist and therefore unworthy of serious consideration.
Because any time there is a choice of courses to take, The Won always takes the course least-beneficial/most-harmful to not only this country, but all of Western Civilization.
There are doubtless other possibilities. What do you think?
1. He was blackmailed.
2. He was bribed.
Questioning why obama does anything is fruitless, everything he does; he does because he can, that was his campaign theme “yes we can”.
And nobody, nowhere, nohow is going to stop him, how much more evidence is needed.
I think he was forced by the enemy to see how strong their blackmail remains. They found out.
Watch out for what they’ll ask for next. They have the Democrats by the short hairs and they are pulling.
My guess is air support for our enemies in Syria.
However, it is clear that Obama foremost sympathizes with America's enemies. He thinks we're evil and whatever these five slugs have planned we have it coming to us.
And all committed leftists/progressives agree.
Follow the money: In the last days of the Clinton admin. The pay window was open for business, for example, Marc Rich, paid $50 million for a pardon. If Qatar, will pay $250 million for a worthless cable TV franchise, how much is the Taliban Dream Team Jailbreak worth? Obama wants to leave office a billionaire. Look for the Obama Presidential Library, to be the best endowed ever. Liberals, do not bother to deny that you do not know that this is going down. You are not THAT stupid, and neither are conservatives. What liberals should be concerned about is: “Is Obama going to share that stash with me, or is he going to keep if for himself?” Answer: When was the last time you were offered a ride on Al Gore’s jet?
$50 million ?
No kidding. Obama hates America and is doing all he can to destroy it, and lower it’s power and prestige. He wants to do all he can to help create a middle east Caliphate that is of equal or better power with China, Russia, and America/Western Europe. Obama hates the American military and likes to screw them up, and then place blame on them. He hates white people, but loves their adoration. He also wants to be adored like a rock star, play lots of golf, and get Mooch off his back. He also desperately wants a statue of himself erected in Washington D.C., but fears that it won’t happen in his lifetime. Beyond this, it gets weird.
$50 million ?
Sounds about right for blackmail. An order of magnitude too low for a bribe. Plenty of Arabs with enough money to pay it and a compliant MSM ready to fight to the death to hide it.
If this turns out to be accurate or even close, November should be a walk over.
Why? Because he was
Lusting for a PR win to offset the VA debacle. It just backfired on him. Poooor Barry...can’t do anything right!
Don't be so sure it will backfire on Barry, remember the MSM has his back, and will make the narrative fit in a way that makes him come out looking good.
Re: “if turns out to be accurate . . . November should be a walk over.”
In a sane world, you would be correct Eric, but alas, we do not.
If the regime can take a black hispanic turn him into a white hispanic. Who was doing his job rightfully checking out a suspicious activity into a racist stalking. Portray that modest income integrated gated community where he was working security and turn that into an exclusive white rich jews neighborhood. Then make a victim out of his attacker because he could have been my (Obamas)son or later even could have been me (Obama).
Then have that story go unchallanged by any in political opposition getting repeated for months as truth. Resulting in at least a dozen or more whites,hispanics and asians being murdered by black youths attributing their activity to that episode.
Why cant they take a traitor converted terrorist and make him into a national hero ?
Why ? It’s done because they can set the narrative.
My question is, How did the Obama administration know where the Bergdahls were located in order to hurriedly put together a Rose Garden event? If this wasn't a staged event I will kiss obamas ass.
I suspect the administration flew these people in from Idaho, now have lied about it, and ..WHY? Lies built upon lies upon lies. The father seemed to have no problems communicating with al Quaeda why not Obama?
No, this was Obama's dog and pony show, staged and choreographed in an attempt to, as Rice said, to put some (political) points on the scoreboard. Obama was happy to do it and put every American at risk for his personal political fortune.
“If this wasn’t a staged event I will kiss obamas ass.”
If I were to kiss it, ik would be with a blow torch! About 10 minutes of HOT! And if he has any ass left after that, YOU can kiss it! :)
True...MOST of the MSM are Obama boot-lickers...but NOT all. Someone, somewhere will out the truth and then Barry will be more “toast” than he already is.
