Posted on 06/01/2014 6:53:05 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
Behind the surprise exchange of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban detainees were secret negotiations that began three years ago and ended over the weekend with the retrieval of America's last known prisoner of war, rekindling debate over the propriety of such deals with American adversaries.

Benghazi was a WAR EVENT where Americans
were odiously and egregiously
left behind to have them conveniently (for
Huma, Hillary and Obama) raped and murdered.
This Obama-created-obfuscation-for-alQaeda is not that.
Both Chuck Hagel and Susan Rice
lied said that there were no negotiations.
And the president's new jest & liar, Josh "The Importance of Lying" Earnest(ly), will
lie to us tell us the same thing tomorrow...
No true captured American soldier has survived more than a few a weeks under the Taliban care!
This traitor looks just great.
The conspiracy theorist in me says that the negotiations broke down at more than one man from Gitmo released for this traitor - but then VA, CIA flub hit and Obama gave away five guys to have something to carry him for a week and make VA, etc. go away.
3 years, that would take us back to Hillary’s time.
Now we know what Hillary’s “secret meeting” was about at the WH.
Somehow I knew that psycho skank was involved and I don’t have a doubt the “ accidental leaking” of the CIA Chiefs name is also part of the deal.
What’s Hillary getting from the terrorist in return, another terrorist attack she can try and blame on the “TEA Party/Right Wing Extremist?
Obama needed a headline to mute the VA problem, so after a three year dance with the Taliban, he agreed to release all five bad guys so fast that he neglected to notify Congress per law. He can neglect Congress as he is Emperor/Dear Leader and the GOP is toothless.
From CBS June 8, 2012:
Bergdahl is the subject of a proposed prisoner swap in which he would be traded for five Taliban adherents imprisoned by the United States at the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The Taliban have walked away from the deal and larger negotiations with the United States, but the Obama administration is still pushing a negotiated settlement between the Taliban and the U.S.-backed government in Afghanistan.
Secret, my arse.
FUBB and your POS son.
So we don’t negotiate with terrorists... but these negotiations have been going on for the past 3 or 4 years?
EP. I noticed this Free Republic thread was up on Google also, after the WSJ, listed at 38 minutes ago.
But, but, the Repubs didn’t know.
Hmmm. Hillary oO. Would she leak?
Somehow something just doesn't seem right.
It took three years, and the deal coincidentally finally closed on the weekend that the VA scandal is destroying Obamugabe. WTF-ever.
I just saw his father on Fox. He hasn't talked to his son and won't for a long time. He said Bo has been away a very long time and if he comes back too fast it could kill him.
Luke 15:20. So he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.
I like Jesus' story the best.
Oh, no doubt there’s been talking going on for years. But, why were they released now?
The Benghazi committee starts up, and these guys get released.
Hillary and Obama were up to no good when they overthrew the government of Libya. Al Qaeda and Putin smacked them in the mouth at Benghazi. During the surrender negotiations, they let Hillary and Obama know they had the goods on them. That’s when the blackmailing started. $5,000,000,000 “missing from the State Department? American weapons, armored vehicles and night vision equipment left unguarded several months ago in Libya so they could be “stolen”? Now, five bad actors released? Our chickenshit President is paying blackmail. Thanks to him and Hillary for putting us in this situation.
Al Qaeda has those antiaircraft missiles and they are threatening to use them. Hillary and Obama are paying them to keep them quiet. The rest of the Democrats and the Republicans and the press and the bureaucrats are going along because they’re scared to death of the airline industry being shut down.
OK. Maybe that’s the way it is. Maybe we have to pay blackmail. But we sure as hell don’t have to keep the s**theads who brought this on in power. And we sure as hell don’t have to be treated like frightened children. We’re Americans. We need the truth to make reasoned decisions including who we vote for. We don’t need a Dictatorship of Deception to protect us. It only protects the jackasses that got us into this mess.
If you use a direct link, you can only see a summary.
“Our” government was apparently negotiating in the interest of the Club Gitmo guests....
The leak came straight from the WH, but Hillary wouldn’t have a problem leaking the name of CIA and blinding the intel community in that area to make a deal with muslim terrorist.
A friend of mine son just got sent back to Afghanistan a few weeks ago, he’s in the air force.
He said they were receiving extensive training on escaping capture, training beyond anything they had done before.
His son told him he felt there was going to be a major terrorist offensive and that they all felt they were “expendable”.
If his son is right and there is a major terrorist offensive, “accidently” leaking the name of the CIA chief and blinding the intel community would be a perfect way to provide cover for themselves they had no knowledge of the planned attack and it would also allow Zippo and Hillary to make the claim the planning for the terrorist attacks are short term, virtually “spontaneous”.
But Hagel said there were no negotiations
Yep like when he needed to divert attention away from his fraudulent birth certificate he killed Bin Laden. One thing he’s transparent about is how obvious he changes the subjects on all his scandals and law breaking. We can see right thru him on this.
We elect terrorists. Why shouldn't we negotiate with them?
The Arab Doctor that gave us the info on Osama Bin Ladin’s whereabouts that led to his killing is ROTTING IN PRISON while Obama Preens like a Peacock about Killing Bin Ladin!! Why isn’t the right LAMBASTING Obama for not doing anything??
Stalinist lie. ALWAYS
