Reported details of the high-profile prisoner swap that freed Bowe Bergdahl over the weekend are not telling the full story ... The Haqqani Network, a terrorist group operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan ... the details of that exchange do not add up.

Amazing! While our wounded warrior vets are being denied treatment and some dying because of the delays.

The OboZo thugs/thugettes who hate America did this:

“The theory has not been confirmed—though State has yet to deny it either—but the senior intelligence official expressed concern that the United States may have “enriched a terrorist network.”

“We just funded them for the next 10 years is my guess,” he said.

"Those who cannot remember the past
are condemned to repeat it
"
George Santayana



President Ronald Reagan:

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
"

Maybe Obama is betting on the Haqqanni network to be the ones to come out on top of the upcoming civil war in Afghanistan.

If true, it might be wise to stay out of high rise buildings and indoor shopping malls for the next 10 years.

We have to wait to confirm, but if so, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is even too much for the Dims to ignore, i.e. Impeach and Remove.

This could be part of what the unexplained money missing from the State Department.

I don’t believe anyone from the State Department has ever been asked where the missing funds are.

This is what happens when a platoon of psycopaths de-rails a winning war strategy in Afghanistan. Obama is forced to fund islamic terrorists in order to set things right. /s

Situation Normal.

Accountability in the government is non-existent. In fact those “responsible for managing” the money probably got promotions and/or awards. I’ve witnessed many such cases. Failure is rewarded in the gubmint as a suppression tactic; cover up the malfeasance lest the senior managers get unwanted attention.

The general attitude is, not coincidentally, like that of the three monkeys: Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.

Something else being overlooked.

Obama, by having America brought to it’s knees by the Haqqani Network, has made the Haqqani Network “the big dog on the block” in the terrorist world.

Bill Clinton did the exact same thing with Osama bin Laden and al Qaida when America was brought to it’s knees and run out of Somalia.

The Haqqani Network got a big payday and a prisoner!

The Taliban got 4 senior management & command leaders back.

The Obama Network gets closer to shutting down Gitmo.

The Bergdahl Family got their deserter, likely traitor son back home.

Robert Berghal got to thank our enemy, in their language, in the Rose Garden.

We know what America got!!

That doesn’t stop the Taliban or Al Qaeda from also paying the Haqqanis.

Sheesh people don’t be so surprised.

He promised even before his coronation that, when the chips were down, he would side with Islam, which means, NOT with the US!

And now we act outraged?

Dear DC,

How can I send taxes or money to the federal government when its executive funds terrorists ? Would I not be breaking the federal law that prohibits providing funds or material aid to terrorists or those who support terrorism ?

Although my comment seemed to me, to be dripping sarcasm I better add the /S tag to the above comment.

They sell drugs and have lots of money; maybe, given the way they have Obama dancing to their tune... they have offered to fund the next DNC convention.

“They sell drugs and have lots of money; maybe, given the way they have Obama dancing to their tune... they have offered to fund the next DNC convention.”

Or like the Opecker Princes have paid off Carter for decades, OboZo may be getting a great retirement program from the Taliban.
