...All five of the now ex-Gitmo detainees were closely allied with al Qaeda prior to their detention. And Bergdahl was initially captured by members of the Haqqani Network, which remains one of al Qaeda's strongest allies to this day.

The Long War Journal has published extensive profiles of the five former Guantanamo detainees previously....

The profiles below, which are based on declassified and leaked documents, are culled from these previous accounts.

Giving “aid and comfort to the enemy” is a treasonable offense under the Constitution. Article III, Section 3 reads:

“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

It is a very much more serious crime than a felony committed under domestic criminal law.

.... Of course the Obama mouthpieces are now coalescing the narrative of following the Bush precedent where the Bush Administration released the Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir (a.k.a. Abdullah Ghulam Rasoul) in 2007. After his release, he then proceeded to become one of America's fiercest enemies in the region.

... in other words they were forced to do it because ..... "Bush." Yes, they are very creative when it comes to spin.

Why, the Democrats are trading Al Qaeda murderers for a guy who renounced his American citizenship.

I need to find a Democrat car dealer.

“So, we’ve decided on this new Mercedes. How will you pay for it?”

“I’ll give you five rocks for it.”

“Nope! I can’t accept more than three rocks.”

The more I think about it the more I’m of the opinion that this exchange of Bergdahl for five heinous Gitmo prisoners springs from the same minds that thought they could engineer an October electoral surprise by getting Amb. Stevens ‘captured’ and then exchanged for the Blind Sheik.

Let’s take a moment to humor the stories we are fed.

Let’s say AQ is really independent of the US, it really is comprise of bloodthirsty killer types, that hate the US.

Now, imagine you are one of those evil AQ leaders. You’re a leader of the crazed killers.

What would you do if 5 of your guys who have been held at Gitmo get release by the US and come back to rejoin your group ?

You’s suspect immediately that they had been recruited as double agents. You know you could never trust them again.

You’d welcome them back, so they wouldn’t get away. You’d be very calming to them so as to not scare them away. Until you got ready to off them all. Then you’d have them all murdered, problem solved.

This won’t happen.

In reality, AQ is working for new world order financial elites. So are the upper echelons of the US gov’t.

The war of US vs the middle east “radicals” provides a reason for the US military to be in the middle east.

We must remember that financial elites think of war the way ordinary people think of football, it’s a sport.

The goal is globalization under totalitarian slave states.

The things the globalists need to do are: completely subvert Christianity and finish the disarmament / registration of Americans.
