Pentagon Official: Why Obama Made The Taliban Trade
« on: June 03, 2014, 04:28:11 AM »
"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."
Benjamin Franklin

While I agree that the motivation for this exchange was political, it is very likely going to backfire big time. 

The hoped for all American parade with OPapaDoc and Bergdahl down Main Street USA is not going to play as the facts about this POS become known.  Even the MSM cannot resist this story of an American deserter who facilitated the deaths of several soldiers who tried to "rescue" him and may well facilitate the deaths of thousands more as the five terrorists traded for his release plan new attacks.

Add to that the fact that the POTUS recklessly and arrogantly disregarded the law to secure Beghdahl's release, and this could be a very big nail in OPapaDoc's coffin.
