Does the WH believe that all terrorists are equal, it's just some terrorists are more equal or rather worse than others?
If the Obama administration is willing to use third parties (such as Qatar) to procure the release of individuals such as Bergdahl, and in the process, undesirables such as the 5 GITMO detainees are released, then the issue isn't the use of third parties, the issue(s) rather are which terrorists will the WH consider for release/swapping?
If the WH says that they won't ever swap Al Qaeda for U.S. soldiers because AQ are terrorists (and they are terrorists -- and the WH should never swap and/or release them), then why release any who deem themselves to be part of the Taliban, if the WH considers the Taliban to also be terrorists?
The only possible answers are that A.) the WH doesn't consider the Taliban to be terrorists, which means that perhaps some explanations about comments concerning the Taliban or Karzai over the past 5 years will need to be forthcoming, or B.) the WH does consider the Taliban to be terrorists, which would necessarily mean that evidently some distinction is being made by the WH concerning the Taliban and Al Qaeda - such as the idea that the Al Qaeda are really, really bad terrorists, and the Taliban (terrorists though they may be) are, well not so much... and the WH will now take a morally and ethically relativistic standpoint concerning whom they will consider making swaps for.
What say you?
Why don’t we swap all of our illegal aliens (even the ones not from Mexico) for the US Marine being held in Mexico. We can’t send them all at once so just start rounding them up and keeping going till Mexico cries “uncle.” Well, that’s one option if we had a president that liked America.
He just put a price tag on every Americans head and the Taliban will be scooping up bodies for ransom his logic is beyond questioning now.
$humer,Waxman,Pelosi,or all Demorats in Govt.
What difference does it make? As long as Obama can get rid of five denizens of Guantanamo at a pop, he’ll soon be trying to figure out how to get more of our soldiers kidnapped so he can fulfill his dream of closing it.
Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army major and psychiatrist.
Think about this.
This bastard released FIVE DANGEROUS TALIBAN to secure release of an AMERICAN TRAITOR.
SIMULTANEOUSLY, he REFUSES to assist an American Citizen whose wife and children are being held hostage in Sudan or lift a finger to help an American Marine held in Mexico because of a border mistake.
This bastard is an evil villain, a hater of America, a black racist and a closet Muslim Taliban sympathizer.
WHAT MORE do those idiots in Congress NEED to IMPEACH this bastard, Holder, Rice and their entire cabinet????
Great link. And Congress and the American people will do nothing. An even broader issue is that with each demonstration that Obama can do whatever he wants without consequences - guns to Mexican narco terrorists, EPA rules, IRS targeting, arming Al Queda, etc. - Obama moves closer to becoming a dictator with a facade of a democracy, like Hugo Chavez was. The day may come when Obama simply declares Congress in recess, since he already assumed that power with his definition of recess appointments, and rules without even the pretense of democracy - who is going to stop him
WOE, to the Obama Family and all those associated with that Slime Ball, if one American is harmed by the Freed Five!
WOE, to all that perpetrated the scourge that has befallen our government!
Inclusive, are those that languish in Congress, on our dime, allowing this treasonous usurper to reign, without censure.
WOE, to those who voted, some more than once, who voted blindly for the jug-eared charlatan that is now in power!
WOE, to the deserter and his family at the center of this travesty!

His name is Hussein!
Let’s just win the House and the Senate and impeach this inept ideologue!
I disagree. He's not black! He's Indonesian.
If he were really a brother,the repeal of cannabis prohibition would have been job 1 day 1.
He's just using his dark complexion to Tom naive US citizens black and white.
I don’t know about “undesirables,” however, emptying Gitmo is THE goal of this regime and its communist constituencies.
But I know that the regime will avoid checks and balances illegally as they just did in case of Bergdahl by releasing al Qaeda and traitors imprisoned for life for political “accomplishments:”
1- Pollard, to conclude a Mideast Peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. Our intelligence agencies consistently refused to even discuss it since the Klintoon administration
2- the blind sheikh, to appease the Moslem Brotherhood.
I wrote about this a few days ago. If you are interested, you can read the article and my posts #8, #18 and #19 where I tried to connect some dots about the infamous video lie.
I believe that the Bergdahl affair is the circumstantial evidence of a deal between Morsi and 0b0z0 involving releasing the blind sheikh that was about to be pulled off in Libya on 09/11/2012, if things went as planned.
I think Obama swapped those five to make room at Guantanamo for the terrorists he really fears, Dinesh D’Souza, the Koch brothers, James O’keefe and Joe the Plumber.
“The day may come when Obama simply declares Congress in recess”
Yeah, Obama will declare that Congress exists for ceremonial purposes and that his executive powers force him to take action to protect public heath (now that he controls our health care which touches every aspect of society) and save the planet from global warming trumps any and all laws.
WOE, to the Obama Family and all those associated with that Slime Ball, if one American is harmed by the Freed Five!”
I am thinking of a truly wonderful young man I know, a former student, who recently graduated as an Army Ranger. This guy is a strong leader, popular, extremely fit and an excellent marksman. he is also a strong believer in Jesus Christ. He is somewhere right now (he can’t reveal where) in harms way.
OBAMA JUST PUT HIM AND THOUSANDS OF OTHER US SOLDIERS IN DANGER!
This guy could be killed by one of these hardened terrorist OR the people they train in their one year of war planning provided by the government of Qartar.
Obama is such an outrage. Could it get any worse?
