Regardless of the circumstances, we still get an American soldier back if he's held in captivity," Obama said. "Period. Full stop."

The military knew exactly where he was for years.

They didn’t want to waste any more resources on rescuing this POS.

Bergdahl was just a convenient excuse for Obama to score points with his Islamic terrorist buddies, and to start clearing out GITMO.

Any excuse that covers up the truth will suffice. Trading the entire leadership of a major terrorist cabal is a reasonable price to pay for the release of a war criminal. The stink level is deadly.

i hate it when people misquote this... he has the right to be "presumed" innocent until proven guilty... it cannot be that he is innocent until proven guilty, because what if he is guilty? he cannot be innocent while being guilty...

Agreed. This is one of the most insulting things that has come out of his mouth so far regarding this event.

In other words, “shut up, you stupid Americans.”

Why wouldn’t dumBO want a traitorous deserter back, they are kindred spirits? The curiosity is, why in 2009, the era of zerO, Bergdahl became disillusioned?

Oh, reeeeeally??
What about:
100-150 GIs left behind in the Baltic after 1919?
12-15,000 POWs (mainly airmen)left to the Russkis in Eastern Europe after WW II??
~5,000 left after the Korean War to the tender mercies of the NORKs???
AND ‘NAM??? We got back roughly 1/3 of our POWs!!!! That’s no secret, either.

Its a lousy damn record, IMHO.

I listened to NPR news this morning for the first time in a couple of months. I wanted to see what their twist on this story was.

They didn’t even talk about it. In fact, what they did talk about was pointless “slow news day” tripe.

What a waste.

Benedict Arnold came back after he defected too: burning, killing American soldiers, marauding, chasing Thomas Jefferson out of Monticello, devastating Virginia. etc.

Don’t remember any humanitarian exchange for him.

Bergdahl became disillusioned?

I'd rather say Zero's crowd became further delusional, thinking here was the perfect opportunity to move Barry's co-religionists out of captivity and back to the field of terrorist mayhem. First released were the plausible 5:1 (of course, to include the most senior baddies), then clear out whatever's possible under the guise of Bergdahl's ongoing activism.

Absolute blatant high treason. When do the impeachment proceedings begin? Let me not hold my breath. I can’t believe what this guy gets away with. They could catch him on video handing a nuke over to Al-Qaeda and helping them to set it off in New York city and Repugnicans would still hide under their desk being the pussy ass mofos they are “Oh if we impeach him we’ll look raaacist! Waaah!” Meanwhile he’s completely run amok.

Exactly, he planned on releasing the Gitmo terrorists anyway and was hoping to score a few points by trading terrorists for Bergdahl, not counting on the actual circumstances of his desertion getting out so quickly.

This is an indictment of the corrupt DNC-run media who doesn't call him out on this blatant contradiction.

Hello?! The implicit contradiction between #Benghazi and #Mexico would be laughable and absurd, if it weren't so appalling.

Getting the VA story out of the press was the short term goal. I think the long term goal was to release the worst of the worst so that they can go back home to unleash terrorism either here or abroad. If they are successful, then baraq will have a crisis to take advantage of.
Combine this event with baraq arming up every federal agency to the teeth and it makes sense.

Now the purple-lipped liar will try to quell criticism of this unbelievably evildeal by imploring those who care for our military to give this poor hero time to heal. And, of course, the Obamedia will be the first ones on the compassion bandwagon.

Call your Congressman and Senators. tell them you consider this an act of treason against the US and the President has now endangered all of America with another 9/11 attack by releasing these dangerous criminals.

Tell them you expect them to uphold their oath to the Constitution.

The President must be impeached and removed from office for this treacherous act. That is the remedy under the constitution.

My reps are all Dems, but they heard from me this morning.

If you do nothing, nothing will change.

... For the first time in my life ... I actually fear for this country!!! I know that I keep seeing and hearing the term "Needs to be Impeached" but I believe we have moved beyond all of that. This loose cannon needs to be not only Impeached but also removed from office by any means possible available to the American people.

... This President has now .... not only become a threat to the Constitution and to this country ... but he has now become a dangerous threat to the lives of her citizens. This person who is comically referred to at times by many on this site and others as "Our Dear Leader" has passed the point of being a bad President and is now a Threat to the lives of both this country and it's people. There is no longer anything remotely humorous about this. This situation needs to be forced into a solution. before it arrives at a Socialist Event Horizon where true freedom will cease to exist.

.... He needs to go .... and soon! This country cannot survive any more of these despicable foray's into Unconstitutional Territories. She cannot survive if he remains in office.

Exactly. This is another head fake by the #ICan’tManage-in-Chief to suck all of the air out of the media reporting on his failure to fix the broken VA system, which he’d promised to do many times, going back to when he was running in 2007 and 2008.

In the corporate world, we called this management by crisis or by fire. Instead of managing to provide for a smooth running operation, this kind of manager waits until the flames are licking at the ceiling, ready to burn the building down before he decides that maybe that sprinkler system and fire extinguisher installation would be the right thing to do anyhow.

I live next door to a commercial milk dairy here in rural Florida. When I ask the owner how things are going, his usual line is, “I’ve managed to avoid stepping in most of the cow pies so far today.” Obama, on the other hand, seems to have are penchant for being able to step in one cow pie after another, mismanaging the executive branch to the point of an epic failure to lead.

If Bergdahl were the biggest hero in American military history 0bama still committed high treason by letting the five highest level terrorists in custody go.
