Here is what I emailed to my Dem Congresswoman.
Hi Congresswoman Delbene. Just wanted to let you know how shocked we are about the release of the five high risk, top Taliban fighters from Guantanamo. Here is a list of reasons why this decision by the Obama administration is objectionable.
1. The Administration negotiated with terrorists, violating a long standing policy to prevent the inducement of kidnapping (a common practice in northern Africa by Al Qaeda).
2. The five prisoners chosen are the five worst terrorists held at the base — some have killed thousands of people. (see WSJ, June 2, 2014 Page A 12).
3. These fighters after a year in Qatar (preparing future war plans) are guaranteed to return to killing American soldiers. (I am thinking right now of a young man I know, a former student, who is a new Army Ranger who could be killed by one of these hardened murderers).
4. This exchange increases the likelihood that civilians will be captured by Al Qaeda for ransom.
5. Sergeant Berghahl deserted from his post in time of war, making him a disgraced soldier who should be held accountable in military court. According to CNN, after he deserted, other Americans died looking for him. http://www.cnn.com/2014/06/01/us/bergdahl-deserter-or-hero/index.html
6. The exchange takes a valuable bargaining chip off the table to encourage peace talks with the Taliban. We get a disgraced deserter back home (which is nice for his family and friends I understand). They get their five best fighters back and do not have to do anything to end the violence in Afghanistan.
7. Finally the administration kept the elected government of Afghanistan and congressional leaders in the dark, violating the President’s commitment to transparency and directly violating the 30 days notice law that he signed. I am concerned when the president is able to break the law and nothing happens. This reminds of the Iran-Contra scandal during the Reagan administration with Reagan broke a congressional mandate not to fund the Contras. That was considered the biggest scandal of the Reagan years.
Well, I know that as only one member of Congress and a Democrat you probably can’t do much about these concerns. Or perhaps you agreed that the exchange was in our national interest. I can’t see how it is and had to vent a bit.
Thanks for the great job that you are doing in other areas.
It is time to try Obama for high crimes.
Anyone know what the father tweeted here:
The ironic thing is that had these five not been in Gitmo they probably would have been taken out by drone strikes years ago. Taliban and al Qaida leadership positions tend to be relatively short term and fatal. So they might want to think of that before resuming their former positions.
This needs to be common street knowledge, as well as Obama’s affinity for it and islam.
How many died to capture those five? Obama spits on their graves. Impeach Now!
Tell me that is photo shop. He doesn’t have his hand THERE, does he?!
My son and his SF Team captured one of these guys down near the border with Pakistan during his first deployment to A. There were no shots fired in the operation because the target thought their compound was not targeted and the SF team was just doing a routine check, but they had a good tip off and got him.
The CIA sent a special help to get him and the pulled a bag over his head..and that was the last my son saw of him.
First, thank your son for his service.
Though no one may have died at the moment of his capture, many did die to get us into the position to get him. That is indisputable.
that the rat is going to throw the letter in the trash...
