Tyler (KETK) — Well, I guess the exchange rate now for the Obama administration is 5-1. We get back some confused army enlisted man for some of the worst leaders of Taliban.
Bowe Bergdahl, years ago, just leaves his firearms aside and grabs his knife and kit bag and walks off into the abyss of Afghanistan. He said he grew disillusioned with the war and just walks off. Then the search was on to find him.
Reports say six American soldiers were killed looking for this guy. All my life, I was always taught America didn't negotiate with terrorists. Evidentially, we do now.
If I were a parent and had a kid who was being held by terrorists, I am sure I would do and say anything to get them back. As an American watching from the sidelines, I am severely dissapointed in this and know capturing the worst of the worst terrorists who ended up on Gitmo cost time and perhaps lives of Americans. All to trade them for a kid who can't figure out who himself.
If he felt this way about the war, go and tell you supervisors. Get thrown out. Get a dishonorable discharge like he will probably get, anyway.
National Security Advisor Susan Rice of YouYube fame said he was captured on the battlefield. No he wasn't. He walked into the hands of the enemy
She said we don't leave our folks on the battlefield. What, like Benghazi?
And what about the marine rotting in a Mexican jail? Why are we not talking about him?
That's my point of view, what's yours?
