Skip to comments.Military officials urged Obama not to trade Taliban ‘4-star generals,’ source says
Posted on 06/06/2014 2:46:47 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Senior military officials had advised President Obama not to make the Taliban-for-Bergdahl trade, a senior Defense official told Fox News, likening it to "handing over five four-star generals of the Taliban."
The claim adds to the picture that is emerging about the tense internal debate over whether to proceed with freeing five hardened Taliban leaders from Guantanamo in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's release.
Sources told Fox News earlier this week that the Obama administration largely bypassed the intelligence community to green-light the swap, after such an exchange was first floated several years ago.

Did they ask Sheik John Brennan?
Wouldn’t have made in difference he had been told by 5 American 4 star generals. Not that we have any who dares stand up to him...
Yeh, that debate has to be on record to make things look real.
He’s one of them.
And before anyone falls for hitlary saying she didn’t want this deal let’s mot forget that her scumbag husband released 18 terrorists to get the Puerto Rican vote in New York city.
"Fools. I wish they all had one neck I could behead at once."

US places bounty on senior Taliban and al Qaeda leaders
By Bill RoggioMarch 25, 2009
The US Department of State has issued multi-million dollar rewards for two senior Taliban leaders and an al Qaeda leader and propagandist.
Up to $5 million dollars has been offered “for information leading to the location and/or capture” of Pakistani Taliban commander Baitullah Mehsud or Taliban and al Qaeda ally Sirajuddin Haqqani. A $1 million bounty has been offered for information leading to the capture or conviction of al Qaeda propagandist and ideologue Abu Yahya al Libi.
We spent a fortune, in treasure and more importantly, in blood, and he just lets them go.
Even though the military, Congress and anyone with a lick of sense was saying, “No Mr. President, don’t do that.”
OK. Now let's find out who Obama DIDN'T bypass.... those people need to be outed...
At least Catherine Herridge is on this. Great Fox reporter.
If these guys all submitted letters of resignation, perhaps some people would wake up.
Lest we forget, the current thug running the CIA is John Brennan, an Islam convert and eraser specialist.
It would have been nice if even one general or admiral had resigned in protest. Or are a couple of more years for a pension calculation more important?
He “got Osama” and brags about it but deliberately let 5 other murderous top commanders go.
Let's not forget...there are attorneys in the DOJ today who defended some of the terrorists. These were people who were saying that poverty creates terrorism yada yada yada.
And let's not forget that this administration has been directly and through Muslim broker nations, negotiating with the Taliban for many months. What they are negotiating is the Taliban's place in "post-war" Afghanistan.
Wonder why Barzai is mad at us? Obama and his cohorts are letting the people we were sent to eradicate back in ... and back in at the top.
What the sheeple are not getting ... while blinded perhaps by righteous anger over the deserter ... is that these 5 Taliban are not ordinary Joes. They were top Taliban government officials in the Taliban Administration we overthrew. Minister of Defense, Minister of Education, Foreign Minister, etc ...
Obama is reconstituting Taliban Power to come in after our troops depart on the announced date (!).
White House Press Release Bullet Points:
1. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s continued stay in hospital has been for health reason’s as well as extensive debriefing.
2. With full knowledge and at the specific direction of President Obama, Sgt. Bowe Bregdahl was intensionally embedded into the highest levels of the Afgan Resistence.
3. Even with the limited intellgence provided thus far by Sgt. Bergdahl’s continued debreifing, the United States Military has, based on information from Sgt Bergdahl,taken action against the enemies of this country and continue to do so.

Obama admin unilaterally changes law to allow immigrants
with 'limited' terror contact into US The Daily Caller
| 2/5/14 / FR Posted by Nachum
The Obama administration has issued new exemptions to a law that bars certain asylum-seekers and refugees who provided limited material support to terrorists who are believed to pose no threat from the US.
The Department of Homeland Security and the State Department published the new exemptions Wednesday in the Federal Register to narrow a ban in the Immigration and Nationality Act excluding refugees and asylum seekers who had provided limited material support, no matter how minor, to terrorists.
These exemptions cover five kinds of limited material support that have adversely and unfairly affected refugees and asylum seekers with no tangible connection to terrorism: material support that was insignificant in amount or provided incidentally in the course of everyday social, commercial, family or humanitarian interactions, or under significant pressure, a DHS official explained to The Daily Caller.
Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry signed the exemptions. DHS contends that the law change is commonsense and that immigration procedures will remain the same in other respects. (Excerpt) Read more at dailycaller.com ...
