VIA| Now we know that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who went AWOL, did so on purpose. President Barack Obama is receiving heavy criticism from both parties for his illegal swap of 5 high-profile terrorist detainees in exchange for Bergdahl – a man who dishonored his uniform and his country.
Six soldiers died while looking for Bergdahl, but Obama hasn’t honored their memory. And if you weren’t already convinced Obama loathes the military, please note how he has remained strangely silent about ‘American Sniper’ and Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, even after Michelle let her opinion be known.
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, a conservative champion, has always stood proudly with our men and women in uniform. And she went on Facebook to tell Obama just how tired she is of his disgraceful attitude toward the military. She doesn’t hold back:
Here is what her post says (above):
Yet again Mr. President, you lie. You boasted that your exchange of an obvious traitor for a group of known terrorists hell bent on America’s destruction is because “we leave no man behind.” You lie. You left an entire nation behind in the Rose Garden while celebrating a military deserter whose treasonous act you smiled at for all the world to see. You hold the proverbial hand of a traitor, but don’t have the character to do the same for deserving souls who consistently give their all to protect America. Have you spoken up for the likes of American sniper Chris Kyle or so many other fallen heroes? No. You have no guts for that.
Astute, commonsense patriots, you were right all along. I said months ago (June 2, 2014 post below), “You blew it again, Barack Obama.” Read Bristol’s post for truth about Bowe Bergdahl. (Bristol Palin article below)
As Bergdahl’s father spoke his scripted Arabic greeting while Barack Obama nodded approvingly, I’ve never been more ashamed of a President’s action than this arrogant, destructive exchange of another stone in our foundation of freedom – for evil men who hate our freedom. Our once solid rock upon which we were built turns to sand with astounding anti-American acts praised by Leftists. We will – we MUST – survive this President, but God help us survive the people who still support this.”
– Sarah Palin
President Obama has no guts. He is a political being, and thought this act would help Democrats. Clearly, that idea blew up in his face, and he is unwilling to take responsibility.
Sarah’s comments were echoed by her daughter Bristol:
Wow, Obama was a real hero here! (and YES, I’m being sarcastic.)
Lots of people were mad when our President released 5 Taliban leaders from Guantanamo and traded them for 1 American soldier named Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Immediately we started hearing about how he left his company without permission and how others even died trying to find him.
Now it turns out those stories have been confirmed by the Army, and Bergdahl is about to be charged with desertion.
Retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer went on Bill O’Reilly’s show to reveal that the Army’s investigation has finished and Bergdahl’s lawyer has been told about the charges that are coming.
This makes me sick. We traded prisoners for a guy that deserted his platoon and our country. Lt. Col. Shaffer says those 5 Taliban members weren’t even briefed by the Pentagon’s senior leaders before being released. And I’m sure that our soldiers have DIED capturing those prisoners too.
Of course, immediately the Pentagon denied that a decision has been made. Shaffer knew they were trying to keep the decision hush-hush and told O’Reilly what he knows about the “titanic struggle behind the scenes.” The Army wants to do the right thing according to its rules, but the White House for obvious reasons doesn’t want this story out.
Well, they won’t be able to deny the facts in the end… and they can’t change what happened. They’re just making themselves look worse by dragging it out.
