National Security: Federal law prohibits any person repeat, any person from providing material assistance to terrorists, including human assets. But that's what the president did in releasing five Taliban commanders.
When iconic interviewer David Frost asked former President Nixon about the legality of his actions in the Watergate affair, Nixon said "when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal."
That's an attitude seemingly shared by the current occupant of the Oval Office.
As former congressman and Afghanistan veteran Allen West points out, President Obama signed into law only months ago the National Defense Authorization Act, which makes it a crime to offer or provide any material support to terrorist groups. It makes no exception as to who and under which circumstances.
The Taliban is considered a non-state terrorist group to which Obama has returned five of the worst terrorists held at Guantanamo. They are not foot soldiers and this exchange was not at the end of a war, when prisoner swaps often happen. They are four-star general equivalents who will return to the battlefield to target and kill Americans again. If that's not material assistance, what is?
"Is there the possibility of some of them trying to return to activities that are detrimental to us? Absolutely," Obama said during a news conference in Poland.
But fear not, he said, because "we will be keeping eyes on them." Oh, good, we can always risk more American lives on top of those already lost capturing them the first time.
"This is aiding and abetting the enemy, which goes along with the collusion of this administration with Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations and supplying weapons and arms to Islamists," West wrote in the Washington Post.

Deserter Bergdahl Ping
I am sure that Eric Holder is having the paperwork generated to charge the president as I type this...

The Taliban are not our enemy.
White, Christians, Jews, Hindus and US veterans are."
Some high level military resignations in protest would be a good start.
They are all too chicken chit
DESERTER BERGDAHL PING
Maybe we can offer them some F-22’s and air-launched, nuclear-tipped cruise missiles in a very historic deal for peace.
The only thing that surprises me is that Investor’s Business Daily dared to write and publish this article — and with this title to top it off!
Deserter Bergdahl Ping
Judge Napolitano has said what I thought that Obama could be in danger of jail time over this. A good case could be made for aiding and abetting the enemy.
Obama WILL release all Gitmo prisoners by December. It’s time to get out of Aghanistan. Obama cares nothing about our worthless cyberspace bitching . He is a difiant dictator
That means Obongo has committed TREASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Obama: I Have Never Said I Would Negotiate With Terrorists
Great find, thanks for posting it!!!
The Constitution defines treason as either waging war against the United Sates or giving aid and comfort to its enemies. The only two specifically delineated impeachable crimes in the Constitution are treason and bribery. The Mahdi has committed both.
By releasing the Taliban’s general staff on the pretext of a fake “prisoner exchange” for a definite deserter who might also be a collaborator and traitor in return for nothing else, the Mahdi gave aid and comfort to his co-religionists, the Taliban and Al Quaeda, who are our declared enemies. That’s treason.
Bribery goes back to his days as a U. S. Senator from Illinois. Moochelle, who’d been squeezed out of the Illinois bar like the putrescent contents of a malignant pustule, was a PR consultant for the University of Chicago Hospitals Corporation earning about $130,000 per year before the Mahdi was elected to the U.S. Senate. Then, for no logical reason related to Moochelle’s performance, she was prompted to a VP position and got a raise to over $300,000 when the Mahdi was elected to the U.S. Senate. Then a miracle occurred. The Mahdi got a $1,200,000 earmark for the same corporation. The infamous former Gov. Blago of IL was convicted of bribery for a similar transaction/offense. That makes bribery.
