What the Bergdahl deal is really all about

smokescreen

It’s about two words: Obama legacy. He’s emptying Gitmo. Bergdahl is a smokescreen.

Bowe Bergdahl has been described as a POW by the NY Times, the LA Times, and the empty headed Claire McCaskill.

They lie. Bowe Bergdahl is not a POW. He has never been listed as a POW by the Pentagon. POW stands for Prisoner of War. What war would Bergdahl be involved in? He is in a military action, but not a declared war. Bowe Bergdahl’s father, who appears to be Obama’s new foreign policy adviser, let the cat out of the bag.

Bob Bergdahl declared his son’s release a “Muslim victory” and Obama smiled in support.

Now he wants Obama to release more prisoners.

The five released weren’t any common purse snatchers. They were described as the “Dream Team” of terrorists. They were considered so dangerous that no country really wanted them. And they weren’t the first released. Last year Obama released five detainees as an “olive branch” to the Taliban. So Obama didn’t trade five detainees for a deserter. It wasn’t ten either. He traded sixteen for one deserter. Ten Taliban and six American soldiers who died trying to rescue the deserter.

No, we’re not at war with the Taliban. Joe Biden said the Taliban were not our enemy, and the White House stood behind that statement. If they’re not the enemy then we cannot possibly be at war with them and Bergdahl cannot possibly be a POW.

But all this is a smokescreen to cover Obama’s goal- closing Gitmo no matter what the cost.

Obama famously guaranteed he’d close Gitmo within a year of taking office. It has been a thorn in his side ever since and given his pathologic narcissism it had to hurt.

Obama let Gitmo slide for a time but it appears that it was instigation from the left that provided the impetus for this current drive to close the base.

Obama’s Promise To Close Guantanamo Prison Falls Short

April 19, 2013 CNN:

Why has Obama abandoned his Guantanamo pledge?

April 29, 2013

The Daily Beast posts this article:

Obama’s Catastrophic Guantánamo Failure

Last week President Obama stood shoulder-to-shoulder with his predecessor to help celebrate the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and the legacy of President Bush’s eight years in office. A central part of that legacy—much criticized by candidate Obama—was the creation of Guantánamo, an offshore prison in violation of our most basic constitutional and human rights principles. Now in his fifth year in office, Obama has only perpetuated Guantánamo as a symbol of human rights denied by abandoning his promise to close the prison. Today its continued existence is literally a matter of life and death.

The very next day:

Obama: Guantanamo must close

“I’ve asked my team to review everything that’s currently being done in Guantanamo, everything that we can do administratively, and I’m gonna reengage with Congress to try to make the case that this is not something that’s in the best interest of the American people,” he said. “It’s not sustainable. I mean, the notion that we’re going to continue to keep over 100 individuals in a no-man’s land in perpetuity, even at a time when we’ve wound down the war in Iraq, we’re winding down the war in Afghanistan, and we’re having success defeating Al Qaida core.”

Obama became determined to remove the thorn and salve his ego no matter the cost. Once more he would write checks that others would have to cash. He will empty Gitmo of its terrorists and extremists to boast of fulfilling his promise. The consequences of his actions will most likely be felt well after he’s out of office and someone else is holding the bag.

Sound familiar?

It ought to. It’s the Obamacare playbook.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    I believe you,
    I can see your anger, you where there,
    you know what it does to a human being to enter into hell,
    your point is taken seriously, because you lived it,

    @SGT. Rock: The issue was not whether or not to not to bring him home, no one left behind is THE standard. The issue is the way it was handled. Hell, I had a POW-MIA Bergdahl bumper sticker for my truck. I was also overseas, and along with another who posts here, went out on missions looking for SFC Galdimir Phillipe and PFC Kevin C. Ott who were reported MIA on 28 June 2003 after not responding to a radio check south of Balad, Iraq. The two were later found dead near Taji. And yes, I’m quite critical of the way this was handled. More importantly, his fellow Joes have every right to be critical of the way this was handled and they have every right to be critical of him. They were the ones, not anyone else, who put their asses on the line to find him. The family of those who lost loved ones searching for him are also deserving of the truth as they deserve closure as to why their loved ones perished. As for the POW issue, it was the Pentagon who failed to classify him as a POW, which he should have been until he was recovered. Something doesn’t smell right there either.

    He will fundamentally transform the United States. Henceforth we will be all Islam.

    Idaho will NEVER be a muslim state.

    He can do whatever he wants.

    I disagree. He can only do and say what his puppeteers say he can. We are giving obama way too much credit. By himself, he is a babbling idiot who can’t speak intelligently without his TOTUS.

    Soon Homeland Security will be at your house with a prayer rug and a Koran.

    You reminded me of the entrepreneur who invented bombs disguised as prayer rugs. He said business is booming, and prophets are going through the roof.

    Remember way back to last week when we were being bamboozled into thinking Obama and State were trying to do foreign policy via hashtag?
    #Bringbackourgirls!
    Well, Boko Haram is off the front pages, too.
    Last I heard the girls had been found but it was too dangerous to try to get them.

    Common Sense
    THE NEGLECT OF THE VETERANS IS THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS OF ALL,
    WHILE HE TRY TO MATCH IT WITH SENDING THE TERRORIST FREE,
    AT THE LEAST WE KNOW THEY WILL DIE SOON,
    BUT WE CANNOT BRING BACK THE MANY VETERANS GONE FOREVER,
    they did not ever even have the thought to convert to other terrorist movement,
    they are true AMERICANS AND DESERVED TO BE TAKEN CARE OF, more than any one,
    INSTEAD THEY WHERE ROB OF THEIR MONEY, AND LEFT TO DIE, BY THEIR OWN AMERICANS,
    WHICH THEY FOUGHT BRAVELY TO PROTECT THE FREEDOM OF ALL CITIZENS, AND LOOK WHAT THEY GOT IN RETURN,
    WE WANT TO KNOW, HOW MANY MUSLIMS WORK IN THOSE VA HOSPITALS
    THERE SHOULD NOT BE ONE allowe to touch the sick MILITARY,
    they went to war against them, and end up being cared for by them, that would be an abomination,
    and i suspect it is happening with the UNIONS,
