All things considered, Obama just aided and abetted the enemy, again.
Congress’s investigative arm (GAO) stated flatly that Obama broke the law in the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap.
Remember PFC Bowe Bergdahl, the only American ‘POW’ in the Afghanistan war? He walked away from his base camp, with three Afghan counterparts and meandered right into the waiting arms of the Taliban. He served as a propaganda tool, saying he “wanted to learn more about Islam”.
Well, the illustrious SCOAMF-in-Chief has just exchanged this fucking sad sack deserter for 5 muzzie terrorists who were held at GITMO. It’s a clear violation of the law, which he ignores and breaks on a regular basis, and it’s another example of his craven pandering to the enemy.
He’s just released 5 of the most dangerous terrorists held at the facility:
Mullah Mohammad Fazl (Taliban army chief of staff): Fazl is “wanted by the UN for possible war crimes including the murder of thousands of Shiites.” Fazl “was associated with terrorist groups currently opposing U.S. and Coalition forces including al Qaeda, Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin (HIG), and an Anti-Coalition Militia group known as Harakat-i-Inqilab-i-Islami.” In addition to being one of the Taliban’s most experienced military commanders, Fazl worked closely with a top al Qaeda commander named Abdul Hadi al Iraqi, who headed al Qaeda’s main fighting unit in Afghanistan prior to 9/11 and is currently detained at Guantanamo.
Mullah Norullah Noori (senior Taliban military commander): Like Fazl, Noori is “wanted by the United Nations (UN) for possible war crimes including the murder of thousands of Shiite Muslims.” Beginning in the mid-1990s, Noori “fought alongside al Qaeda as a Taliban military general, against the Northern alliance.” He continued to work closely with al Qaeda in the years that followed.
Abdul Haq Wasiq (Taliban deputy minister of intelligence): Wasiq arranged for al Qaeda members to provide crucial intelligence training prior to 9/11. The training was headed by Hamza Zubayr, an al Qaeda instructor who was killed during the same September 2002 raid that netted Ramzi Binalshibh, the point man for the 9/11 operation. Wasiq “was central to the Taliban’s efforts to form alliances with other Islamic fundamentalist groups to fight alongside the Taliban against U.S. and Coalition forces after the 11 September 2001 attacks,” according to a leaked JTF-GTMO threat assessment.
Khairullah Khairkhwa (Taliban governor of the Herat province and former interior minister): Khairkhwa was the governor of Afghanistan’s westernmost province prior to 9/11. In that capacity, he executed sensitive missions for Mullah Omar, including helping to broker a secret deal with the Iranians. For much of the pre-9/11 period, Iran and the Taliban were bitter foes. But a Taliban delegation that included Kharikhwa helped secure Iran’s support for the Taliban’s efforts against the American-led coalition in late 2001. JTF-GTMO found that Khairkhwa was likely a major drug trafficker and deeply in bed with al Qaeda. He allegedly oversaw one of Osama bin Laden’s training facilities in Herat.
Mohammed Nabi (senior Taliban figure and security official): Nabi “was a senior Taliban official who served in multiple leadership roles.” Nabi “had strong operational ties to Anti-Coalition Militia (ACM) groups including al Qaeda, the Taliban, the Haqqani Network, and the Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin (HIG), some of whom remain active in ACM activities.” Intelligence cited in the JTF-GTMO files indicates that Nabi held weekly meetings with al Qaeda operatives to coordinate attacks against U.S.-led forces.
I cannot fathom great Generals like Patton, MacArthur, or McAuliffe tolerating this kind of chickenshit from a so-called “Commander-in-Chief”.
You don’t negotiate with the enemy, you annihilate them. You don’t relinquish cutthroat terrorists for the sake of ‘look at me, I’m magnanimous’ crap. You crush them to the point where they will never again have the ability to do harm.
The hadji slugs held at GITMO are treated to some pretty sweet amenities. They get lavish meals for their holidays, they are allowed to order fast-food takeout from the base, have access to a phone booth for weekly calls, and were given laptops complete with web training.
Obama also splurged with our tax dollars to enroll the little ass lifters in classes to learn landscaping, pruning, and calligraphy.
Obama is a stupid, dangerous scatterbrain, with no clue how to run a country or a war. The “community organizer” in the White House thinks his Dhimmi approach is a nifty idea. The terrorists who get released and returned to their Islamic cesspools, usually pick up where they left off.
He’s just given a big fat green light for bounty hunting of Americans in harm’s way.
As for Bergdahl, he should be marched right up in front of a Court’s Martial and convicted for desertion and giving aid to the enemy.
