With all due respect, the Haqquani Network pays nobody money for anything. They are a criminal Mafioso type of organization who just so happens to use the Taliban as their private army as long as they can convince the Taliban they are working in their best interests.
My take is that the Haqquani Network, or some body/group has the goods on the phoney bologna persona everyone has been sold as to the true “who is he” of one BHO. With the crap storm they were expecting over this whole deal, just imagine why they would even venture this direction in the first place.
We know that these particular five have been the subject of at lest two other release attempts made by this administration. There is someone else driving the reasons for these five and they have a huge bargaining chip in the game. The Congress on both previous attempts have shot it down big time, ergo the reasons why they had to exact the unilateral move this time. The biggest unanswered question is why?
May I speculate that for now years the administration has been promising the holders of his dirty secrets that they would get Congress to approve this. Finally, the holders have run out of patience, especially since there is a great chance the Democrats will no longer hold the upper house after this next election and they called in their markers.
Give them to us now, or we spill the beans. The money exchange was not with the Haqquanis giving us anything, it was instead we gave them the money. It has been rumored it is at least 5 Mil but this dirty little secret will also be known one day as well.
Whatever communications the Taliban or the Haqquanis were having with Bergdahl’s father, must be though to equate when Andy Dufresne kept sending those letters to the state legislature about his Shawshank library needs. They finally got tired of the letters and sent boxes of books and some money. Apparently, there was no propaganda or PR to be extracted any longer from this loser so they decided it was time for him to go and the “Five” was a convenient excuse. Does anyone wonder why being that the “Five” were released five days before Bergdahl was?
They got their five leaders back and they don’t have to baby sit this loser anymore. Plus they got paid for their efforts.
The 0bama Brotherhood thought they’d have a home run with the public and it turns out to be a strikeout as far as voters know. Maybe this time the media won’t be able to save his nasty ass.
With all due respect, the Haqquani Network pays nobody money for anything.
Yes, thinking of Daniel Pearl’s fate, they must have had reason to keep Bergdahl around.
