Obama says 'absolutely' a risk in freeing Taliban inmates, but defends Bergdahl swap
Fox News ^ | 6/3/14

Posted on 06/03/2014 5:23:58 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

...Obama, in his first public comments on the controversial trade of five Taliban prisoners for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl since the deal was announced, acknowledged Tuesday there's "absolutely" a risk that the former Guantanamo inmates will try to return to the battlefield -- but nevertheless defended the deal as in America's interest.

"I wouldn't be doing it if I thought that it was contrary to American national security," Obama said.

"I wouldn't be doing it if I thought that it was contrary to American national security,"

BS.
This is his motivating factor - the more damaging it is to American national security, the more likely he is to do it.

Mr. Boehnor, Mr. John Boehnor, please pick up the yellow courtesy phone in the lobby outside the lounge entrance.

I really wonder just what it is that this administration has on gutless Johnny. An honorable man would have stepped down long ago, but as long as he gets all those free drinks because of his status, why would this pitiful alcoholic do anything to disrupt his lifeblood?

One would hope these five terrorists were GPS mirco chipped so the second they step outside the agreement for their release...we can turn them into a pretty pink mist...by drones...

I’m sure Obama would never agree to that, but maybe the CIA went behind his back...

So now is Sudan going to want some bad guys released in exchange for that Christian woman sentenced to death and her baby? And is Mexico going to want some killers released from US jails in exchange for the Marine held in a Mexican jail? And are there any BokaHaran maniacs held in jails? At Obama's ratio, 300 Christian girls held in captivity in exchange for 1500 terrorists could end up being the going rate. Aren't we still arming terrorists who kill Christians in Syria?

I'm deeply disturbed that there are cases where there were diplomatic paths to save Christians that weren't taken, while the priority seems to have been to free Muslim radicals.

Expect more of the same. Remember obama is the QUEEN of the doubledown, if people express displeasure with what he has done, he’ll do it again or something worse just to stick it to the American people. Seen him do it numorous times in the past.

I think someone should start that GPS chip rumor. They wouldn’t be able to join another terrorist cell again for fear of being located.
Has anyone seen the hero’s welcome these inmates received in Qatar?

-The Taliban commander told NBC News the exchange was the first time its ‘enemy’ had ‘officially recognized our status.’

Over 51% of the voters agree with the son of a bitch. To the Democrats, he is worshipped as a god. This is evidenced by the fact that they did not boo the mention of Obama on National Television at their Convention three times in succession.

We are still having to live with the aftermath of the Carter Middle East policies.

Obama’s releasing 5 of some of the worst terrorists of this century surpasses Carter.

We will be living with the aftermath of this release for the next half-century and more.

The excuse: Bergdahl was ill, Qatar was willing to broker the exchange, now was the only time and these 5 were the terrorists the Taliban wanted.

{shaking head}

{wonder what the intended deal for the capture of Amb. Stevens was, had it not be flubbed up?}

Well, well, well, another screw-up of bamaboy....no surprises here...along with all the other screw-ups in his years in our White House, (shaking head) What is going to be left when this idiot leaves?

He was just looking out for his ‘gitmo’ buddies so his ‘kind’ will like him because anyone with any brains surely don't...I hope when we vote for a new POTUS in 2016 our heads are straight and clear, because we have a lot of work to do....fixing the budget (he used as his private checkbook); getting rid of this ridiculous obamacare (his private health plan for his buddies); fixing the VA and making sure our vets have the best care there is; denying open borders and sending back people that are taking our programs (he thinks these people are his ‘friends’ and they need help)...its going to take a lifetime to get this mess even looked at let alone fixed....

Put on your thinking caps and start paying attention of who your going to vote for....
