    Do You Think Obama Is Fufilling A “sacred Obligation” By Releasing Other Violent Terrorists To Combat Violent Terrorists? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/01/bowe-bergdahl-obama-pow-release_n_5427698.html?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000592

    quoting…

    We have a sacred obligation that we have upheld since the founding of our Republic to do our utmost to bring back our men and women who were taken in battle. And we did that in this instance.”

    Cruz suggested that Bergdahl himself would have disapproved of the exchange.

    “Can you imagine what he would say to his fallen comrades who lost their lives to stop these people who were responsible, either directly or indirectly, for threatening or taking U.S. civilian lives?” Cruz said. “The idea that we’re now making trades, what does that do for every single soldier stationed abroad? It says the reason why the U.S. has had the policy for decades of not negotiating with terrorists is because once you start doing it, every other terrorist has an incentive to capture more soldiers.”

    How Come Obama Without Consent Of Congress, Released 5 Taliban Terrorists To Trade For A Soldier That Went AWOL? Obama Releases 5 Taliban Terrorists In Exchange For Only U.S. POW In Afghanistan, Brags About ‘Leaving No Man Behind’ Despite Doing That Very Thing In Benghazi

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The only American solider held prisoner in Afghanistan has been freed from Taliban captivity in exchange for the release of five Afghan detainees from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Obama administration officials said Saturday.

    Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was handed over to U.S. special forces by the Taliban Saturday evening, local time, in an area of eastern Afghanistan, near the Pakistani border. Officials said the exchange was not violent and the 28-year-old Bergdahl was in good condition and able to walk.

    In a statement, President Barack Obama said Bergdahl’s recovery “is a reminder of America’s unwavering commitment to leave no man or woman in uniform behind on the battlefield.”

    The handover followed secret and indirect negotiations between the U.S. and the Taliban, with the government of Qatar serving as the go-between. Qatar is taking custody of the five Afghan detainees that had been held at Guantanamo Bay.
