The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News reported that the American prisoner for whom President Obama traded five high ranking Taliban members will be charged with desertion.

    Now we just gotta charge this President with treason.

  • Why after all this time?

      The election is over; doing it now prevents the fact they gave up millions and cash and 5 truly bad people to get this POS back from becoming political fodder. If they didn’t charge him then it would have led to a congressional inquiry and I suspect Obama’s handlers are trying to have less of those running around right now.,

          What your surprised Obama used a deserter, who is most likely also a traitor, as a way to funnel millions of cash and return 5 senior terrorists back to the very people who want us dead, all the while destroying one of the fundamental policies of not negotiating with terrorists in the process and he got to throw the “no man left behind” policy in our face while doing it? For Obama’s plans to undermine the US it was a winning situation. Add in that it made the US look weak in the eyes of her enemies and it’s a great policy for Obama – of course it sucks for the US as a country.

          I also see no negatives from the terrorists point of view.
          The terrorists got to trade one not very effective jihadi convert to the US in exchange for crates of cash they can use to buy arms and plan more terrorist attacks against the US and they got 5 senior people who have planned said attacks in the past. They also get the PR bonus of having made the US abandon it’s policy of negotiating with terrorists and everyone in the world with a working brain knows they got everything they wanted with out giving up anything.

          Now Obama has to know everyone in congress with a working brain sees the trade as a bad deal and that there are likely more than a couple of people who would jump on this as another attack against him (Obama); while he can order the media not to cover this there are negatives to that. So he allows Bergdahl to be tried for desertion, if he really wants to stick it in the eye of the military he’ll ensure Bergdahl is found not guilty just to give the military a slap in the face. Or alternatively he can have him found guilty but say he was under too much stress and get a psych discharge which has all sorts of bonuses as far as claiming ex-military are unbalanced because of stress and are a danger and should not have guns.

          Not that I don’t think Obama wouldn’t have Bergdahl tossed under a bus if it furthered Obama’s plans one inch.

    Democrat math.
    One deserter.
    Gets five guys killed looking for him.
    Gets traded for five guys who would kill the five guys looking for him.
    And an undisclosed amount of cash.
    But, hey, if it saves just one life.

    Another for the Obama pardons list, should he be convicted.

    He’ll be reduced in rank (after being given a promotion while deserted), he’ll be sentenced to time served and cut loose from the Army.
