Hagel Hopes Terrorist Swap will Help ‘Peace Process,’ Taliban Laughs

This Administration is a joke. An absolute joke.

As a supposed defense of the decision to release five terrorists to gain one American who at best was a deserter and at worst was a Taliban sympathizer, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel pointed to the release of these prisoners as hopeful sign that terrorist will now engage in the peace process.

They won’t. They’re terrorists.

The five high-ranking terrorists were held in Guantanamo Bay as they were “high-risk” terrorists who posed a threat to the United States. However, seemingly favoring a terrorist catch-and-release policy, the weakest administration in history traded the five terrorists in exchange for an American who had been held since 2009 after he deserted his post and wandered off into Afghanistan.

On Sunday, Hagel defended the decision on Meet the Press and claimed, “So maybe this will be a new opening that can produce an agreement” between the Taliban and the United States.

“Maybe, just maybe if we give the terrorists what they want, they won’t hurt us.” This is the most cowardly foreign policy this nation has ever seen, and that includes Jimmy Carter.

This admin really does believe if they are nice and give the enemy what they want, the enemy will be nice kids and join in the great New World Order led by Dear Leader Obama.

Releasing the terrorists shows that we mean them no harm! It's a sign of good will. Certainly the terrorists will recognize this and be our friends! /sarc

I think the exchange should have been obama for the traitor, tit for tat so to speak.

From top to bottom, this administration is filled with dangerously ignorant dumbasses.

Chuck Hagel is living proof that no one is actually too stupid to live.

These terrorists will simply operate from Qatar for a year.

Can't wait till they make their first hit and their faces wind up on the front page. B........

There no “peace process”. All the Taliban understands is force. It’s either cow-tow to them and convert to Islam, or die. An ass whoopin’ is all they understand.

THE GREAT EXPERIMENT

See what happens when a gaggle of oafish, air-headed, self-righteous buffoons is placed in charge of the most powerful nation in the world.

There is enough to this shameful chapter in Obama’s regime for impeachment.
If it turns out there was a ransom as well, prison for the guilty!

Hagel is in charge.

He doesn’t know that peace does not come from surrendering.

2 1/2 more years of this.

Is it going to get worse? Is this just the beginning of scorched earth?

I expect it, and I find the idea sad. As stupid and in so many cases evil as liberals are, I want them to learn from their foolishness, not die from it.

Bergdahl was not a POW, he was a POCO.

A Prisoner of Overseas Contingency Operations.

I would not be surprised if this is not the start of a scorched earth policy for the United States, why not? Obama has been permitted to get away with so much because of our spineless congress.

These comments by Hagel just point to GHWB being the first president to welcome the New World Order.

We are no longer the "leader" of anything. We "lead" from behind.

I agree wholeheartedly, and to disagree is delusional and suicidal. (MARS ATTACKS!)
