I like your post....wondering who your WH sources are. I’d like to cultivate a few.
I don’t believe this Bergdahl thing was part of an effort to improve PR due the VA scandal.
I believe the administration paid big bucks to the Hokkani tribe, forgive my spelling....to get Bergdahl back just to fill the Democratic coffers with cash for the upcoming mid-term elections.
They know the peeps are going to vote against them big time. The Democrats told Obama that they’re going to start dropping him big time so Obama(Jarrett) told them that their election coffers would soon be full, hang in there.
They knew the Bergdahl story would come out. Oh I’ve no doubt that they planned to play it up, to make like they were releasing a hero.
But it was all to get money for the Democrats, I don’t know how they’re laundering the money. They were using the VA to launder money, other methods right under our nose.
I think they were desperate to keep the Democrats from bolting so they pulled this stunt and paid money for Bergdahl and GOT money for those five terrorists, I don’t know from where but that’s how the deal went as I see it.
What do they have to lose? Obama is now a lame duck and he knows he will never be impeached, even if he raped a boy scout on national TV.
They never cared for America’s safety. What boob would announce when they will withdraw from hostilities....what idiot does this? Big Arab oil money pouring into Democratic coffers cause the Mooselimbs want to take over the world.
The administration knows the Republicans won’t do anything. Lindsay Graham, you got to smile, came out and said, I am not making this up, that if Obama does this AGAIN there will be impeachment proceedings.
Why must he do it AGAIN? Why are there not impeachment proceedings now?
Not saying it’s the thing to do but every abuse woman or man, even Ruling Class slick-haired, spit-shined shoe Republicans, reaches a height when they will take no more.
One of these days the Republicans will take a stand cause guys, there’s a slew of things they can do.
And yet all they do is threaten impeachment for the NEXT time.
I’d be careful about “Whitehouse sources”. Just keep in mind they are all in the enemy camp, bar none.
I think President Obama is taking a calculated risk with the Bergdahl situation, but he didn’t count on social media and the Internet overrunning him in no time flat. This is the type of thing that could haunt the Democrats in the 2014 Congressional elections.
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.
