He's been a captive of the Taliban since the Obama administration has ruled America and they just now found out his life was in danger?  The same Taliban that beheads people and just now his life is in danger?  Give me a break.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Exactly....I am not buying into this at all...Obama needed a *good news* story re the military and this is it...

btw..how about getting the release of Sgt Tahmooressi in Mexico....Mexico is an ally it should be easier...how about swapping him for 1000 illegals... :shrug:

Everyone needs to keep in mind that THIS particular soldier was not captured in battle but as a result of his own personal choice to walk out of the compound to which his unit was assigned. Remembering that will put all of this in a very new light!

The defector's father tweeted YESTERDAY that he will continue to work to close Gitmo and free all the prisoners.  That all the killed Afghan children's deaths will be avenged.

The defector sent his uniform home to his parents and said he was ashamed to be an American and was thinking of defecting

Anyone surprised that O freed five Taliban Commanders in exchange for a fellow muslim.

yep...which makes team Obama, Kerry & Hagel look even more ridiculous than usual.  The new White House Press Secretary will be getting his baptism by fire on Monday.....

We've let defectors to the Norks rot before, I see no reason why Abu Bowie ar-Ameriki should not be allowed to live with his decision as well.  The Taliban should have given him a chance at martydom....send him out in the field where the Apaches can hunt him down and give him a Hellfire suppository.....

I am going to hold off judgement, brother. We've been there - a lot of us on this forum. Seen people make less than optimal choices and have their crisis of faith and judgement. I will wait for his own words. Figure I owe him that courtesy.

I'm making no judgments. Just reporting FACTS! And none of us have enough of those to make any judgments.  But what I'm seeing so far does not look good at all!

It sounds like he was messed up BEFORE he was kidnapped!  There is a possibility that this kid was trying to defect and presented himself as an opportunity to the enemy. 

The marine being abused in a Mexican jail is in danger too and was not disloyal to the military.  Where's the deal for him?  Are they even trying? 

Exactly....I am not buying into this at all...Obama needed a *good news* story re the military and this is it...

btw..how about getting the release of Sgt Tahmooressi in Mexico....Mexico is an ally it should be easier...how about swapping him for 1000 illegals... :shrug:

Sounds like a good deal to me!   :beer:

Hagel: Captive's Life Was in Danger  Ok, so these clowns decide to fix this defector's life being in danger, by putting every Amercan's life on the planet in danger. Good move, moron.
 
This is a major, major, victory for the Taliban. You can bet they are dancing in the streets all over the M.E.
 
And you can be sure, now, that they will certainly try to repeat this victory with someone else.

With his apparently 'fake' captivity, this guy did more to help the Taliban than Ben Laden himself could have ever done. He is a hero to our enemies.

I will give this soldier the benefit of doubt, instead of condemn him based on what could be enemy propaganda.

He may be brainwashed. He may have acted under duress. He may not currently posses "capacity."
