The United States has for several years been secretly releasing high-level detainees from a military prison in Afghanistan as part of negotiations with insurgent groups, a bold effort to quell violence but one that U.S. officials acknowledge poses substantial risks.

“Obama is a fool.”
Maybe he’s doing it to gain friends and influence people?
Looks like Obama’s going to create the excuse he needs to close GITMO; “It’s EMPTY!”
More than 2 years is “several years”. You’re correct in that it’s worded to protect Obama by implicating Bush.
We need our people out of Afghanistan NOW!
Oh, what sting?
Hey! Anybody seen the body? Anybody?
I'm afraid even your sarcasm doesn't go far enough in the case of Obama and his ilk.
The word is not "appeasement" but outright "collaboration" - for the goal is NOT "peace" and coexisting but the destruction of what he & his ilk call the "privileges" & power of America and white/non-third-world Americans. Obama's entire biography and all his past associations speak to no other purpose.
He has and will always stand with Black against White, Muslim against Christian, the 3rd World against the West, global socialism against capitalism, etc.. Everything else that Obama and his propagandists, in and out of government, tell you to the contrary are strategic lies.
What this is all about is the Obama administration demonstrating they can be a good “go along, get along” kinda outfit ....a real player in coming world government.
They are demonstrating they are “big enough” to trash the “region they rule” for the “bigger picture”. None of these parochial local sentiments.
Opening sentence, emphasis mine....” The United States HAS FOR SEVERAL YEARS been secretly releasing high-level detainees from a military prison in Afghanistan as part of negotiations with insurgent groups, a bold effort to quell violence but one that U.S. officials acknowledge poses substantial risks.”
I was going to make the observation that it sure hasn’t worked, but then, like you my FRiend, I realized that in fact, it has, and IS working extraordinarily well : |
The most recent evidence can be found here, on the prayer threads for Justin Lansford, and Travis Mills. Two young warriors who, with their friends and families, are paying the price for 0’s “bold” strategy.
It is well past time to bring them home, and draw up charges of treason against this sitting _resident.
May God guide our course.
Ya know if it wasn’t suicidal and treasonous, it’d be damn funny. Don’t know what to say.
Pissed Off is not a good way to start off my monday.
2nd, you do realize that at that level of this Administration, 'treason' is just another option for international diplomacy. They don't care what you call it. Their ends justify the means. And worse still, his supporters (including and outside media) feel the same way.
Elections have consequences, but the people keep believing in magic. That somehow a politician really can create something from nothing.
According to the left, these people commit acts of violence because of Western Exploitation.
Hollywood,Academia and the rest of the left firmly believe this to be factual.
I think not, Evil Genius is more like it, they will call this one the "Fast and Facetious" gunnerwalker operation,
on release, Obame will give each "Arab Sprout" a sniper rifle, crate of ammo and GPS location of our troops
I hope they at least secretly implanted a GPS tracker in their buttocks.
Only one of two things going on here....this White House is full of fools OR they are the enemy. You guess which.
