Obama on Bergdahl Swap: We
Had to ‘Act Fast’ with ‘No Publicity’

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/7/2014 7:58:53 AM

President Barack Obama capped off the 70th anniversary of D-Day by sitting down for an interview with NBC Nightly News host Brian Williams. While the president did touch on the historic moment, what Williams and everyone else really wanted to know about was the decision to release five Taliban detainees in exchange for U.S. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. “When somebody wears our country’s uniform and they’re in a war theater and they’re captured,” the president said, “we’re gonna do everything we can to bring them home.” Echoing statements he made the day before, Obama said, “We saw an opportunity and we

To finish the statement: Because if we didn´t act fast with no publicity, Congress and the American public would have been so outraged, I couldn´t have pulled it off.

And btw, we never tried to convict them. We needed to release them to fulfill my deepest desire to continue my fundamental transformation of the United States into a third world country.

Well Brian, you see, my photo op for D-Day was coming up and I needed something to distract from that pesky VA thingy. If word had leaked out it would have killed that opportunity er I mean killed Bergdahl.

When Obama speaks of US military tradition he does so out of complete ignorance.

Then why announce the exchange before it occurred?

This was all about "publicity", but not the kind he expected.

Trying to see the endgame of the MSM/White House strategy, it would seem the "war on women" lie is too dated to be used again this year, and a Republican "war on POWs" too implausible, but we can be 200% certain that whatever outrageous lie the MSM/White House is concocting to hold the senate in the midterms is being set up at this moment, probably right in front of our eyes. Oh, to listen in on a strategy session...

Obama lies and tears down the United States. Its what he does best. At this point he figures he can do whatever he wants. His actions are criminal. He also knows nobody in Washington will stop him. He also knows most people don´t know what he is doing because the media will cover for him.

It´s too bad the jerkweed in the White House didn´t "act fast" when our people were dying in Benghazi and there were troops within striking distance. He might have saved some lives but then that would have been helping America, something that goes against his muslim grain.

In reality, despite what Obama said the war in Afghanistan has not ended. Obama proclaimed that the war there, for Americans, will end on a date certain, but the problem is the enemy, the Taliban and other radical Islamist organization say that they will continue to fight on to take over the country of Afghanistan. Clearly Obama´s objective in Afghanistan is to release all the enemy functionaries at Guantanamo and bug out of Afghanistan as soon as he can, irregardless of the battlefield situation, so that he can manufacture a political legacy that he ended the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. That´s the liberal Democrat way of ending modern wars. In the end we will have two more wars where a lot of Americans gave their lives and body parts for zilch.

Let me see if I can folllow the neurons in Obama´s brain:

"We had an opportunity because after 2 years trying to get by their board of directors back from Gitmo the Haqqani were getting bored and might decapitate their plaything.

The Congress and the military smelled a rat and wouldn´t change the threat assessment of the Gitmo 5.

If we had publicity leak out, there went Bergdahl. So we had to stay mum. Wad to ignore congress We had to ignore military assessment. We had to now"

Did it ever occur to the neuron that Bergdahl was the sole bargaining chip they had and if they dumped a headless body on us, their board of directors would NOT leave Gitmo?

Man, is this one screwed up DUDE.

For years I’ve been wondering…

Would it be considered déclassé to refer to an internationally known serial prevaricator as a power-crazed male offspring of a female canine?

Of course, there would be no question as to its accuracy. It’s demonstrably true. Nonetheless, I’ve pondered first running it by Miss Manners. Then again, upon further review, I’ve finally decided, “Nah!”

Note that 86% of American casualties in Afghanistan have come under Barack Obama´s leadership. The ONLY American soldier Barack Obama has EVER worried about is Bowe Bergdahl, an American Traitor and convert to Islam who abandoned his post, renounced his citizenship, and ran off to join the Taliban.

Barack Obama hates America.

That´s why his decisions ALWAYS benefit America´s enemies.

When Obama says that he does not regret what he did re Bergdahl and would do it again - that you don´t leave someone behind - if I was a reporter in that room and had a chance, I would ask him to say that all again - as infuriating as it is - then ask, so how come you didn´t go to the aid of your ambassador and other people in Benghazi? How arrogant is Obama to not realize that to common sense people this does not compute.

Let´s see. We had to act fast for Obamacare. We had to act fast for QE. We had to act fast for immigration reform. We have to act fast for income inequality. And act fast about global warming.
I´m sick of it. How many times will idiotic low foes buy the same snake oil?
Instead of acting fast, I propose we just fast forward about 900 days.

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

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.

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.

Under the new system, the board, which had previously operated in secret, must notify an applicant if a law enforcement agency lodges a credible objection to his or her application and must give the applicant 10 days to rebut the objection.

He must have. “Only those of sound moral character and integrity may lift Mjolnir,” according to the Marvel Universe wiki.

“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.
