Good News and Bad News About the Bowe Bergdahl Prisoner Swap

I’ve got some good news and some bad news about that prisoner swap Obama arranged last week without Congressional approval…

Apparently, contrary to my last blog on the subject, we didn’t really release five unrepentant terrorists from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for one America-hating deserter.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that what we actually did was release five unrepentant terrorists from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for one America-hating traitor.

That’s according to serious speculation from a CNN report. And if CNN is seriously speculating about something that makes Obama look bad, it’s probably a lot more than just serious speculation. It’s probably verifiable truth.

Here are the article’s first several lines:

“Former Army Sgt. Evan Buetow was the team leader with Bowe Bergdahl the night Bergdahl disappeared.

“‘Bergdahl is a deserter, and he's not a hero,’ says Buetow. ‘He needs to answer for what he did.’

“Within days of his disappearance, says Buetow, teams monitoring radio chatter and cell phone communications intercepted an alarming message: The American is in Yahya Khel (a village two miles away). He's looking for someone who speaks English so he can talk to the Taliban.

“‘I heard it straight from the interpreter's lips as he heard it over the radio, said Buetow. ‘There's a lot more to this story than a soldier walking away.’”

Oops?

If that’s all true, not only did we disprove the notion that this country doesn’t negotiate with terrorists, but we also proved what utter, reckless dupes we are. Which, I suppose we’ve been doing for a while now, especially under this arrogant dictator-wannabe of a president.
