The 100% do not deal with a terrorist idea was a GOP idea in the first place and I did not agree with it. At the time it did some good and was okay but I am sure NO ONE actually believed it to work forever as it is an age old, tried and failed concept. I think any military leader will tell you that taking a 100% position on anything only makes limitations on yourself. You NEVER tell the enemy exactly what you will or will not do.For the love of Country and Veterans President Obama brings home POW
The President has constitutional authority to make prisoner exchanges as
Commander-in-Chief and responsible for foreign affairs. Can anyone
seriously think a highly confidential negotiation for prisoner release
should be subject to Congressional grandstanding? The Far Right GOP
politicians taking cheap shots about the President bringing home a
solder after five long years of capture should be ashamed of themselves.
President Obama was twice elected and made clear his intention to get us out of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. Our country's tradition includes bringing home those captured by the enemy. Far Right GOP cheap shots harm to the confidence of future solders that our country will not leave them behind in enemy dungeons in future wars.
Good Job Mr. President
How would you people like to be a soldier that fought for your country, was captured, got released by the efforts of your country, and then came home to people who wish you were still a captive? How would you like to have your home turn it's back on you after you put your life in jeopardy for them? You people MAKE ME SICK!!!
