Would releasing captured enemy combatants be providing “comfort” to our enemies?

Maybe Obama is just going all-in, now.

Hmmmmmm.....didn’t Obama and Hillary just have a private meeting, and now five enemy combatants are released? Hmmmmmm......

Is it unwise to question every last little thing this Administration does? I say it’s a smart thing to do.

Right now Chuck Hagel and David Gregory are spinning their heads off.

How wonderful this, and will lead to peace, and other good stuff.

YUK.

I’ve been reading through Robert Bergdahl’s twitter feed and he’s been talking about releasing prisoners from Guantanamo for months.

Yep, not a one time deal, that’s for sure. He’s got more than a few disturbing tweets up, that’s for sure.

It’s so easy to play with Americans’ minds. This is designed to take the heat off the VA issue, just as the VA issue conveniently removed scrutiny from the 36,000 criminal illegals having been released onto our streets.

And it works.

For some reason my computer wont accept twitter so im kinda flying blind on this article but i find it unnerving this guy can’t get away with this with almost no scrutiny.

Obama is running with negotiating with terrorists and the spin cycle is trying to play it off like the law only means kidnapped hostages once again will Obama get away with breaking the law and how many GOP will go RINO on it ?

Seems repaying for the deaths of 3000 innocent Americans that were killed would matter first. We weren’t over there to attack Afghan children. We were over there because they attacked us.

Go do an image search on Bob Bergdahl. All the pics I have found are either AP or Reuters so they can’t be posted here. Take a look at this guy’s daddy.

*EVERY* single action of this administration either harms America or helps radical Islam.

Two and one-half years of this poisonous asp to endure. 50/50 we make it.

Stunning isn’t it, and it will once again expose the Boehner/McConnell Republicans foot draging reluctance to ever answer the now mountains of administrative lawlessness, and yes-we-can governance, circumventing the legislative body, with impeachment and removal.

Whether impeachment results in removal, in Reid’s Senate, or not, the House has a DUTY to answer multitudes of abuses and lawless tyrants with impeachment and use it’s power of the purse.

We are being betrayed by Republican cowardice, failing to use the constitutional protections which duly authorize them to impeach a tyrant for the good of the nation.

It’s not been shown that “captive he” is not a traitor, was obviously AWOL, and perhaps an enemy sympathizer, aka., Daddy’s boy, in this case.

That may be true. Except for the tweets out there from soldiers out there who seem in the know that he was wondering off the reservation for no “good” reason that was helpful to the United States military.

The guy has been through much. This one needs time to make a valid judgement. After 5 years he know doubt developed a kinship with those that held him. I’m no expert but I don’t think that breaks down instantly.

I’m willing to wait and see what happens before passing judgement.

What one needs to do...is read enough to make a valid judgement...not time.

I've read quite a bit..and discerned much from what I've read.

The guy didn't drop far from his seed...so to speak.

I'm not buying your position but grant you have read more on this than I have.

You seem to discount much in coming to a quick conclusion in my view, denying consideration of time as a necessary part of sound decision making.
