Obama Negotiates With Terrorists

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama has negotiated with Taliban Terrorists, with Al Queda links, to secure the release of Sargent Bowe Bergdahl, who was captured by them in June, 2009 in Afghanistan.   Obama traded five high level Taliban Commanders, that were being held in Guantanamo Bay for Bergdahl in violation of the law that he inform Congress of his actions first.   So what's new.  Obama ignores the laws on the books all the time.  These Taliban Terrorists will be released to Qatar, supposedly rather than going back to Afghanistan to attack our soldiers.   Anyone who believes that is going to happen is delusional.    These five Terrorists will end up back in the field in Afghanistan within a year or less.  It is only a matter of time.

Naturally any parent would give anything to get back their son or daughter, which it totally understandable.  However,  in negotiating with these Terrorists, Obama has now set the price for one American at five Terrorists released from captivity.   This is a first and a very bad precedent for our nation.  Sadly, while it is great that Sargent Bergdahl will soon be home with his family and friends, Obama's trade just insures that we will see more kidnappings of other Americans by Terrorists around the world. 

Negotiating with Terrorists never has a long term happy ending.  What will we give the next time around.  Releasing five Terrorists from captivity will now be the starting point in the negotiations for each kidnapped American.   Finally, Obama has wanted to close Guantanamo Bay (GITMO) since the day he was first elected, which has bi-partisan opposition in Congress.  Let us hope this is not Obama's way of getting rid of GITMO in the next few years.  To be sure, we have not heard the end of this story.
