Hagel arrives in Afghanistan, says
Bergdahl´s life was in jeopardy

Fox News*, by Staff*

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/1/2014 8:56:38 AM

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel arrived in Afghanistan Sunday, one day after the White House announced that it had secured the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, America´s only prisoner of war in Afghanistan, and four days after President Obama announced a drawdown of U.S. forces that would leave fewer than 1,000 troops in the country by the end of 2016. Hagel defended the Pentagon from criticism for not giving Congress a 30-day notice of the exchange of five detainees from the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for Bergdahl by saying that officials believed that the soldier´s life was in danger.

30 day notice on releasing/moving prisoners is OK, but giving 30 notice as a condition of a prisoner swap during intensive talks is a little much.

I´m glad he´s free. I´m not happy about the high quality exchange and the ramifications down the road.

Am I the only one who remembers the confusion surrounding Bergdahl´s "capture" five years ago? The whole affair seemed less a capture than a desertion....but few facts were available.

This is pure B-ess. The only purpose of this exercise was to get the population of Guantanamo on a steep downward slope. The only goal is to close it soonest. Obama started with the top of the list in order of most dangerous and most wanted freed by the Taliban/Al Qeeda.

Michelle Malkin posted a tweet from Bergdahl´s father that said he is working to make sure every prisoner in Guantanamo is freed.

There are soldiers that were there with Bergdahl junior who said that he walked off post and was not kidnapped. Several soldiers were killed in the search for him.

Something is very rotten with this story.

How stupid! Every American soldier´s life is in jeopardy in Afghanistan, but we don´t see Obama getting personally involved, with a big photo op. and rush them off to Germany. This looks more and more like a political diversion from the VA mess.

It appears that the guy may have caused his own POW situation by going AWOL in Afghanistan. Wonder how many American soldiers were thereafter wounded and killed looking for him over there?

It is interesting to say the least that this guy´s father turns up with a big Muslim like beard, took up learning the local language spoken by the Taliban, and apparently is aligned with Obama´s policy to release all the Taliban from Guantanamo Bay?

WASHINGTON — The White House said Tuesday night that it would refuse to allow its director of political strategy to testify Wednesday before a Republican-led House committee investigating whether the administration had illegally conducted political activity in the West Wing. In a letter to Representative Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the president’s top lawyer said that as a member of the executive branch the political director, David Simas, had immunity from being compelled to testify before Congress. Mr. Issa’s committee subpoenaed Mr. Simas last week, contending that the White House should not

Rupert Murdoch´s 21st Century Fox (FOXA.O) said it made a bid to buy media conglomerate Time Warner Inc (TWX.N) but was rebuffed. The bid was worth roughly $80 billion, or $85 per share in cash and stock, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters. Time Warner´s stock jumped 22.5 percent to $87 premarket as the New York Times reported that Murdoch was determined to buy Time Warner and was unlikely to walk away despite the rejection.

WASHINGTON — The White House likes to use a phrase of tingling adventure to describe the president’s recent penchant for wandering the country talking to people: “The bear is loose.” There are three problems with this unbearable metaphor: Barack Obama is not in captivity, he’s not a bear, and he’s not loose. As Voltaire said of the Holy Roman Empire, it was “neither Holy, nor Roman, nor an empire.” When our whippetlike president travels on Air Force One from staged photo-op to staged photo-op and then to coinciding fund-raiser to coinciding fund-raiser, encased by the White House travel behemoth and

Thanks to our friends at Washington Free Beacon, you’ll never have to watch a Barack Obama speech again. Reason being, this 76-second video shows you everything he’s going to say. He will: Tell you it’s great to be back in whatever town he’s in. Tell you to have a seat – twice. Appreciate the introduction. Love you back. Recommend building more roads and bridges. Say the economy grows from the middle out. Say the wealthy have to “pay their fair share.” Blame Republicans in Congress for everything. Encourage you to vote rather than boo.

Bad news for chocolate lovers -- your favorite indulgence is about to get more expensive. Hershey Co., the nation´s leading candy producer, said Tuesday it is raising prices of chocolates such as Kisses, Reese´s, Mounds bars and other candies by 8% to combat increasing food, utility and transportation costs.

President Barack Obama sent thrills up the collective legs of his supporters (and a few journalists) last week when he quoted Martin Scorsese’s The Departed during a campaign-style event. “I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy,” Obama said, referring to congressional Republicans. “It is lonely me just doing stuff,” the president continued. “I’d love it if the Republican did stuff, too.” It is worth noting that the president resorted to this bravado while he was ignoring calls from members of his party to see the border with his own eyes.

The road was melting. Extreme heat from thermal features at Yellowstone National Park, created by the active volcano below the park, caused oil to bubble on a road surface Wednesday and damage it. Park crews had to close and repair the 3.3-mile loop road that takes visitors past White Dome Geyser, Great Fountain Geyser and Firehole Lake. Blame it on the Yellowstone Volcano. Yellowstone National Park -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- sits atop one of the world´s largest volcanoes, and some of the thermal spots have damaged the popular Firehole Lake Drive.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
