Late in the afternoon of Saturday, May 31, Barack Obama strode confidently to a lectern in the White House Rose Garden flanked by the parents of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, a soldier who had gone missing from his platoon in the mountains of Afghanistan in June 2009.
This morning I called Bob and Jani Bergdahl and told them that after nearly five years in captivity, their son, Bowe, is coming home, Obama said.
The president thanked service members who recovered Sergeant Bergdahl and brought him safely out of harms way. Obama also expressed gratitude to the diplomats who had handled the case, and he reported that his administration had worked for several years to achieve this goal. The president confirmed news reports from earlier in the day that Bergdahl had been freed as part of a prisoner exchange with the Afghan Talibana deal that was brokered by the government of Qatar. As part of this effort, the United States government is transferring five detainees from the prison in Guantánamo Bay to Qatar, he announced.
dahl was a hero, she suggested, an American prisoner of war captured on the battlefield who had served his country with honor and distinction.
In an appearance on CNNs State of the Union, Rice explained that the five Taliban commanders would be transferred to Qatar, where they will be carefully watched and their ability to move will be constrained.

He's a buffoon.
If the media wants to blame anyone, it's Obama first, who obviously ok'd the embedded messaging to Islam, then the father for his doing so, and then the clueless staffers of the administration for their support of treasonous acts.
To answer your question——no, Boobamba didn’t interrupt his workout for this.
But he did have to take valuable time away from tallying his vast holdings....and from all the fun he has watching Valerie Jarrett do offshore wire-transfers.
BTW, Valerie’s WH title is “senior deputy advisor”——in Chicago gangland parlance, that means “wire-transfer artist.”
The Jihad Organizer screwed up.
I get the strange feeling that their is another shoe to drop in this matter.

their there is another shoe to drop in this matter.
Now we not only send millions in a hostage deal, but send the purchasing agents along with it to buy and plan the terrorist acts in perpetuity, and the president does that?
That's typical of most of Obama's actions. There always seems to be more than meets the eye.
Making obama directly responsible for every future murder those bastards commit.
Jarrett's official WH title is "Senior Deputy Advisor" (in Chicagon gangland parlance that means "wire transfer artist") Michele Obama was hired by Jarrett---then an official in the corrupt Daley Admin.
Laura Ingraham insightfully said that all roads lead to Valerie Jarrett," noting Jarrett's involvement in secret dealings w/Iran (where Jarrett was born and raised). She has her tentacles into every issue and every topic..... at least part of her role is to serve as chief liaison to the business community, state and local governments, and the professional left, but her influence is undeniable.
Jarrett commands a staff of nearly three dozen, and has a hand in decisions ranging from invitation lists to state dinners and gifts to foreign leaders, to USSC nominees, ambassador appointees, President Medal of Freedom awardees.
When Warren Buffett visits to the White House for lunch, the table is set for three.
Here's Jarrett (in pink) at the BP extortion meeting. CNN reported 2010: Behind closed doors and after four hours of negotiations, BP executives agreed to put $20bn into an independently managed compensation fund.
BEHIND CLOSED DOORS---Obama was joined in the negotiations by VP Joe Biden, and five cabinet secretaries, including DHS Janet Napolitano, interior secretary, Ken Salazar, energy secretary, Steven Chu, Labor Secy Hilda Solis, Valerie Jarrett, and COS Rham Emanuel. / PICTURE/BP Holdings.
DOING THE DEAL---Valerie takes notes as Obama dreams about his cut and new diamonds for Michele. In foreground, then-COS Rahm Emanuel's hand holds the pencil jotting down his cut that will help make him Chicago Mayor.
At the top, in turquoise, then-Labor Secy Hilda Solis figures out her cut and how many BP executive jobs she needs for latinos. Left, Valerie Jarrett hopes Biden will remember his scripted lines.
MOB HIT VP Joe Biden Told BP: "Youll Put $20 Billion In Escrow Or Well Do It For You."
Jarrett is "The Enforcer"---making sure Obama is properly adored and worshipped. If you don't worship Oboba-- Valerie's gonna getchou.
When or how does this bunch get the boot?
At this rate? When it's far too late to matter...
Aren't the Bergdahl's from Idaho? How long would it take to get to D.C. from Idaho? If Obama truly called them in the morning, say 6 am Pacific time, (9 am on the East Coast), they would have at best 7 hours to pack, get ready, and catch a flight to D.C. from Hailey. It takes 1.5 hours to drive to Boise airport from Hailey, then the fastest flight commercial flight would be a Delta flight to SLC, then BWI, which would leave at 6:40 am, arriving in Baltimore/Washington at 4:06 pm. Even if they flew right from Bailey, they would have had at least a 3 hop, as opposed to the shortest two hop Delta flight from Boise.
Conclusion: Obama lied about telling them the news the morning of the press conference, he sent a government jet for the Bergdals, or both.
