Taking Some Time Off but Wanted to Link to this Excellent Article About the Return of our POW

This is one of the best articles I have read about the POW that has been exchanged for five terrorists sent to Qatar who worked on the exchange.  We don't leave American soldiers behind and as this article points out the people making all the comments from the right don't have a clue anymore then most people what happened.  

If Bergdahl is guilty of desertion, he will be subject to the Code of Military Justice but what if he is not and these lunatics went over the edge against President Obama because he is black -- face facts that is the reason for a lot of the hatred coming from Congress which some now admit.  One person on a site said Obama should advocate 'breathing' so the hard right would stop 'breathing' and pass out.  Pretty well sums it up.

This is an excellent article about how far the right has gone in their hatred of President Obama.  A Bush Administration official said that Pres Bush would have done the same thing and in fact, they released hundreds of prisoners.  What does Cheney have to say about that?  Condemns Pres Obama for releasing five prisoners as we don't negotiate with terrorists which is Bravo Sierra as there have been many instances including get our embassy people back from Iran.  

The worst one to comment is Sen McCain who came back to this Country as a POW when they were released due to negotiations in Paris by Secretary of State Kissinger at the time, met by his father and whisked away.  Then Lt McCain did not go through normal debriefing and has been under a cloud of suspicion for years about what he told the Viet Cong or the fact he was involved in multiple crashes of Navy planes or that he finished near the bottom of his graduating class at the Naval Academy and shouldn't have been in pilot training.  How dare he even make a comment except to say we don't leave our soldiers behind.

For years groups have been combing the jungles of Vietnam looking for any signs that someone who was MIA is found so they can return their remains to their families.  They have followed every lead trying to find the remains of our soldiers left behind.  Many pilots who have flown the remains back to the States for identification talk about how heart wrenching it is but at the same time they are bringing our soldiers home which is a priority.

Read this article by retired US Navy Chief Warrant Officer Jim Wright and ask yourself which category you fall in -- do you condemn a soldier without the facts and say we shouldn't bring him home or do you believe we bring him home as he is still one of ours and find out what happened?  What I have witnessed from the right is beyond pale as they have sunk to a new low on Bergdahl.

Negotiating with Terrorists

I get that they are so utterly terrified of the world that they piss themselves in abject fear at the mere thought of going to the grocery store without a goddamned gun stuck in their pants like an extra oversized prick.  
More than anything, I get that they are afraid of Barack Obama, everything about him, every single thing about the president terrifies them. Obama stalks their feverish nightmares and he is the very symbol of their shameful impotence – so much so that they’ve written him into their precious bible, in a starring role as the devil, the destroyer of worlds.
