Posted on 06/10/2014 4:27:15 AM PDT by bryan999
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf downplayed the risk that the five Guantanamo Bay detainees exchanged for Sergeant Bergdahl might pose should they return to the battlefield.
Lets say the worst case scenario, these five guys do return, in no way would that substantially change the Talibans order of battle on the ground, thats just not even logical. Harf was explaining Secretary Kerrys recent statement that concerns over the five detainees are baloney.
Look, she said at a briefing Monday, is there a chance they will return to the battlefield? As Secretary Kerry said, of course. But we believe we substantially mitigated the risk enough.

Sure. We all believe that
"They Detainees helped rearrange America for the better.
We (protected) in the State Dept want more of the same."
So she knows that the 5 subhuman bearded savages still want to kill us and are going to try with every ounce of energy still left in their reptilian brains.
A warfare expert at State speaks...
Good. Maybe Marie would like a transfer to Afghanistan?
“State Dept: Five Guantanamo Detainees Will Not Have Substantial Impact on Battlefield”
Tell THAT to their victims!
The Taliban have an office in Qatar....thanks to Obama. That permits the entire Taliban organization to “do lunch” and prepare to do the USA....911 style.
The statement is not only logical, but true.
The reason...... there is no battlefield
The war is over
No War, no battlefield
war is obsolete to Moonbats
The only way I might believe the headline is if the next line was, “because we castrated and blinded all 5 prior to release”.
Kerry is such an expert on military matters, of course, because he served four months in Viet Nam before going home to his senator daddy.
And where did they dig up that new spokesperson for the State Dept.? She really shouldn’t be wearing that false nose and glasses if she wants to have credibility.
What kind of heartless, unthinking twisted b!tch does one have to be to spew such nonsense? This President and his ilk have gotten to the point where they’re not even trying to make sense anymore.
Just stand up there, filling some kind of ‘optics’ template for believable spokesperson and spout sh!t about which they know nothing. No experience, no logic, and no scruples.
It’s not just about what those 5 will or will not do. It’s about the fact that we have made it clear that we will negotiate with terrorists, and cut 5 for 1 deals with them.
Both her parents are University Professors so that pretty much explains her complete lack of logic.
I feel so comforted now that we have that great Military Strategist Marie Harf reassuring us.
Kerry said the other day that IF these five try anything funny, they will probably be killed in their attempt.
She’s right, they wont have an impact on the “BATTLEFIELD”.
They are going to be targeting the American people with IED’s right here in the streets of America, not soldiers on a far off battlefield.
This nit-wit is just as bad as Victoria Nuland.
Thank you Obama voters that you gave the nation this lying creep.
Exactly. I think one reason the current administration keeps appointing these young, dumb, ignorant (and poorly spoken) people is because Obama wants us to know exactly how unimportant all of these matters are to him.
National security? Pfah. Like, dude, who’d want to hurt The Won?
In the 70’s I had occasion to make several trips to US embassies for the company for which I worked and reported back to my boss that:
1. If the answer to my request wasn’t specifically covered in their books of regulations they were lost. No one could think out of the box.
2. The American State Department employees clearly had a “superiority complex.” The local employees were easier and more effective.
More barf from Harf.
How much effect could five men have on the battle field?
Imagine the ancient world without Alexander, Napoleon, Caesar, Hannibal, Attila.
Imagine more recent history without John Paul Jones, Lafayette, Joan of Arc, Robert E. Lee, or Rommel.
Imagine history without Churchill, Lenin, Lincoln, Washington, or Gandhi.
Imagine a world without Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Caligula, or Obama.
Sadly, we are releasing five of our enemy’s senior leaders, and these men will have added credibility as survivors of Gitmo, not to mention as those on the winning side of a trade for one treasonous deserter. What difference will they make? I suspect we will find out, and when we do, Obama will announce that he heard it on TV and is very angry at the republicans who allowed the next big terrorist attack to succeed (probably because we didn’t stop global warming, and the Taliban are just lashing out because climate change is disrupting their lives).
Substantial asymmetric warriors. Jihad continues apace.
From, The Quranic Concept of War
The universalism of Islam, in its all-embracing creed, is imposed on the be- lievers as a continuous process of warfare, psychological and political, if not strictly military. . . . The Jihad, accordingly, may be stated as a doctrine of a permanent state of war, not continuous fighting. Majid Khadduri

Remember the Station nightclub fire?
I’d like to straighten her out.
There were not yet enough murdered for the EXEMPT Congress
and the protected EXEMPT pRES_ _ent.
Taliban Mullah in Chief Hussein Obama has chosen Secretary of Defending the Taliban Hagel to continue to make Grand Bargains with Gitmo Prisoners so that Gitmo can be closed on the last day that all US Military Personnel finally abandon Afghanistan to the Taliban.
This statement from bammy’s administration makes no sense and is illogical on its face. If five significant players will have no impact, why do we bother with drone strikes, often for just one guy, knowing they may cause civilian casualties? And if these five aren’t significant players, why did we hold them for years? This is BS,pure unadulterated BS.
If they will have no substantial impact, why did we capture and hold them in the first place? My bet is those five will be extremely valuable to those who would fight against us.
Next time our troops need to do what was done in NAM. If someone was caught and later released then caught a second time, they were never seen again. there would be no third time.
We don’t even have to go very far back into history to learn the lesson of why just one man can make a difference!
General Douglas MacArthur was deemed so valuable to the war effort that President Roosevelt ordered him to flee Corregidor to avoid, even a chance, of capture. Does anyone not agree that the President made the right call and removed MacArthur from a perilous situation.
I’ll bet the Japanese sure thought he was valuable to the Allied effort.
She’d be better off in Victoria’s Secret bra and panties doing pole dances at the local strip club.
Seems like the left have no shortage of finding dopes that make Jay Carney look like Einstein.
