The White House on Tuesday defended its controversial swap of Taliban detainees for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl....
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.
traitor should give part of his salary to this guy’s family
Bergdahl was just a convenient excuse for Obama to score points with his Islamic terrorist buddies, and to start clearing out GITMO.
He has more flexibility now.
So does Putin and our other adversaries abroad. Just saying.
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?
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.
If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Period.
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.
Like any American, he is innocent until proven guilty.”
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...
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.
exactly.... but then letting people die unaided is noble and heroic don’t ya know
This is a 100% success!
The VA issue is off the front pages.... it was getting too much attention!
