Thanks, Obama. You ratfuck.
KABUL, Afghanistan — Five members of the Afghan Taliban who were freed from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay in exchange for captured American Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl have joined the insurgent group’s political office in Qatar, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said Tuesday.
They will now be among Taliban representatives negotiating for peace in Afghanistan, a sign some negotiators in Kabul say indicates the Taliban’s desire for a peace pact.
Others fear the five, all of whom were close to the insurgent group’s founder and hard-line leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, bring with them the same ultra-conservative interpretation of Islam that characterized the group’s five-year rule that ended in 2001 with the U.S.-led invasion.
……The five Taliban were released in 2014 in exchange for Bergdahl during the administration of Barack Obama after drawn out negotiations.
Bergdahl, who had been held in Taliban custody since 2009 when he wandered off a U.S. army base, was given a dishonorable discharge last year and fined $1,000 on charges of desertion and misbehavior.
When Bergdahl walked away from his post, he deliberately sought out the Taliban so he could join them.
He left his gear in a nice neat little pile along with a note that explained he was running away. He willfully collaborated with the enemy and declared himself ‘mujahid’ and allegiance to Islamic jihad. The attacks his unit endured got more methodical and precise after his desertion.
Six Soldiers were killed looking for his worthless ass. Barky traded five of the worst muzzie cutthroats at GITMO for this piece of shit.
It took some time before charges were even brought against the little shitbag, since Obama treated him like a pet to advance his political agenda.
They should have left him with the Taliban. They should have considered him an enemy combatant and killed him on the battlefield.
Barring that, he should have been taken out and shot.
