How Obama Convinced His Spies to
Support the Taliban Prisoner Release

Daily Beast, by Eli Lake

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/2/2014 9:20:49 PM

Leaders of the U.S. intelligence community and military were opposed to freeing five senior Taliban commanders in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl when the White House first began exploring the prisoner swap in 2011 and 2012.The U.S. military wanted to bring Bergdahl home, but releasing Mullah Mohammad Fazl, Mullah Norullah Noori, Abdul Haq Wasiq, Khairullah Khairkhwa, and Mohammed Nabi Omari was seen as too dangerous at the time. James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, according to three U.S. intelligence officials, flat out rejected the release of the five detainees, saying there was too high a risk

Comments:
I have never seen so many weak, incompetent morons who will not stand up to Obama. Clapper was absolutely against it and then caved? “This was an example of forcing the consensus,” one U.S. military official said. What does that mean? Why won´t those in the military stand up???

The whole point of Zippie´s latest escapade was not to bring Bergdahl home...it was to release the most heinous of the Taliban/terrorists...Bergdahl was the cover. Or at least Obama hoped Bergdahl would be his cover.

When Susan Rice went on TV yesterday and proclaimed Bergdahl to be a wonderful soldier who serve honorably, you know it had to be a lie because Obama only uses Rice for cover.

With Obama, you always have to see what his other hand is doing. In this case the whole idea is to rid Quantanamo of inmates so closing is a moot point. Enter Bergdahl.

It doesn´t matter that their networks were decimated. Today 10,000 men pledged to give their lives for jihad, Death to America. Tomorrow 10,000 more and they will follow these 5. We´ve unleashed the devil. It makes no sense.

How about ´getting their cooperation´ by "accidentally" publishing the name of the top CIA officer in Afghanistan........

My bet is that he probably wouldn´t go along, and perhaps even threatened to go public with his disagreement. Suddenly he was in severe personal danger in Afghanistan and they have permanently destroyed any possible undercover value - career over. "Just an unfortunate accident, you see, but maybe ther folks should cooperate more, wouldn´t want any more accidents to happen."

I quit believing in coincidences with this Chicago Pres quite some time ago, and they would literally do ANYTHING if they thought it would advance their cause. It´s the Chicago way.

I´ve been watching the video of Bergdahl´s family and Zippy in the Rose Garden on Fox tonight and Zippy is standing there grinning like the Cheshire cat while the father is speaking Pakistani or whatever to his son. Remember him saying something to the effect that the sweetest sound in the world was the muzzie call to prayer.

Obama Skips Border Visit to

President Barack Obama visits Texas later this week. As will also be the case when he visits Colorado this week, local Democrats will run from being photographed with him. Wendy Davis avoided being seen with the president the last time he visited the state. The president is taking some heat for his decision not to visit the Texas-Mexico border while he is in Texas. That border is in chaos, thanks in no small part to Obama’s lax policies. A leaked DHS memo makes it clear that the Obama administration has slowed down deportations, and that policy is driving much of the

When asked about who composes or approves tweets sent from the President´s @BarackObama account, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest pointed out that "The @BarackObama twitter handle is maintained by OFA," which is Organizing for Action, the political organization that is the "offshoot" of Obama´s campaign machinery, Obama for America.

Obama to immigration groups: I’ll

Just making sure that this Major Garrett scoop from late last week doesn’t get lost in the holiday shuffle. Takeaway: Obama’s going big on executive amnesty. Obama told the groups what they had been dying to hear—that he was going to condemn House Republicans for inaction and set the most expansive legal course permissible to beef up border security, slow deportations of noncriminal aliens, and provide legal status to millions of undocumented workers—all by himself… Obama made it clear he would press his executive powers to the limit. He gave quiet credence to recommendations from La Raza and other immigration

Illegal immigrants continue to pour across the southwestern U.S. border, overwhelming both the border security apparatus and the immigration system. The flood of tens of thousands of people, mostly children, from Central America has reached crisis proportions, with temporary camps opened in military bases to house them as authorities decide how to deal with their cases. Given the high level of emotion surrounding the issue -- and accusations by Republicans that his actions spurred the flood -- you´d think President Obama would want to get a personal view of what´s going on when he travels this week to Texas, epicenter of the

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki stated Monday that the U.S. government does not believe Hamas plays a role in the Palestinian government. CNN reporter Elise Labott questioned Psaki about the United States’ continued support for the Palestinian unity government, saying, “You’ve seen the comments that are coming out of Hamas.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that Democrats will take up legislation in the “coming weeks” to address last month’s Supreme Court decision that allowed some employers with religious objections to opt out of Obamacare’s contraception mandate. Democrats on Capitol Hill have overwhelmingly criticized the high court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case and are working to craft a response that would restore the coverage, though no specifics have yet been outlined. “We’re going to do something about the Hobby Lobby legislation,” Reid said on the Senate floor Monday as he ticked off the Senate’s to-do list over the

This is… troubling. The ongoing and apparently worsening calamity at the southern border as protected individuals like Central American women and children stream across the border is not merely a humanitarian and political crisis but a health crisis as well. While the influx of immigrants is not being curtailed, the health risks associated with that inflow are apparently being mitigated. “It’s getting better,” said U.S. Border Patrol Council Shawn Moran in an interview with San Antonio’s WOAI. “Everyone is being screened and receiving medical care.” That’s nice, but buried at the bottom of that report was a deeply disturbing revelation that the federal

One of the IRS officials whose emails were lost in a “computer crash” was responsible for spinning Congress about the agency’s targeting of nonprofit groups, according to 2012 emails obtained by Congress. Nikole Flax served as ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s point person on delaying and reviewing all IRS responses to questions about what Lerner called “c4 stuff” and was tasked with ensuring that every IRS response on the matter contained an “affirmative message.” Flax, a frequent White House visitor, is one of seven IRS employees whose emails were allegedly destroyed in a wave of computer crashes that afflicted the IRS’

Most mothers would be shouting from the rooftops if their daughter snagged George Clooney. But the mom of Clooney´s fiancée, Amal Alamuddin, is not so impressed with her daughter’s choice - and instead wanted her to marry within their strict Lebanese religious sect, according to close family friends. High-profile human-rights lawyer Amal, 37, was born in Beirut to a prominent and highly respected family within the Druze sect, a medieval offshoot of Islam, who are forbidden to marry outsiders. For traditional Druze families intermarriage results in excommunication and social boycott.

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me. Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago. A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008.

When the German botanist Philipp von Siebold sent a variety of plant specimens to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in August 1850, he had no idea what he was unleashing on the world. Among the various floral and tuberous growths he dispatched was a plant which, 164 years later, is leaving a trail of mayhem all across the planet. It goes by the name of Japanese knotweed, or Fallopia japonica. It presents a pleasing appearance to the eye: heart-shaped leaves, bamboo stems and pretty, little white-flower tassels. What is less obvious is this plant’s relentless killer instinct. Look through the

The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article. A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States. The 290,000 illegals — so far — are exploiting legal loopholes that allow them to get temporary permits to stay in the United States. Experts say that

Would you buy a bargain-priced airline ticket, but the catch was you had to stand for the entire flight? A new university study says the idea of standing-only sections on planes is no joke. An airline that removes seats can fit about 20% more passengers and, as a result, offer discounts of as much as 44% compared with airlines that offer big comfy seats, according to the study published in the International Journal of Engineering and Technology. Airlines in Ireland and China have looked into the concept, but none have yet put the idea into practice. Major carriers in the
