Terror suspects freed by Obama admin. were labeled high risk in 2008: report
May 31, 2014
All five terror suspects the Obama administration exchanged for the release of Sgt. Bowe Berghdahl on Saturday were deemed in a 2008 Pentagon dossier to be high risk for launching attacks on American interests if released.
They are undoubtedly among the most dangerous Taliban commanders held at Guantanamo, said Thomas Joscelyn, a senior editor at the non-profit Long War Journal.

Taliban Gloats Over Jihad Victory
Taliban leaders claimed a jihadi victory following President Barack Obamas decision to release five of their top leaders held at Guantanamo Bay, in exchange for one U.S soldier who walked off his base in 2009.
The five leaders were released due to the benevolence of Allah Almighty and the sacrifices of the heroic and courageous Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate, which is formal name of the Talibans movement, said the June 1 statement.
Obama described the trade as a recovery of the U.S. soldier.
But the Talibans press release described it as a trade.

6 soldiers killed searching for deserter POW, fueling backlash
June 2, 2014
Six soldiers died in the frantic search for Sgt. Bowe Bergdhal immediately after his mysterious disappearance five years ago, fueling the increasing backlash over the POWs recovery.
Former platoon mates of the now-recovered serviceman accused Bergdhal of deserting his post and blamed him for the unnecessary deaths of comrades.
I was pissed off then and I am even more so now with everything going on, former Sgt. Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahls platoon, told CNN.
Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him.

WH apologizes to Senate intel chief for prisoner swap secret
The White House has apologized to Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) for failing to alert her in advance of a decision to release Taliban commanders from Guantanamo Bay.
Feinstein told reporters that she received a call from Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken on Monday evening apologizing for what the administration is calling an oversight.
I had a call from the White House last night, from Tony Blinken, apologizing for it, she said.
He apologized and said it was an oversight, she added.
Feinstein also said leaders of the House and Senate Intelligence panels were almost unanimously against a prisoner trade when it came up in 2011.
Mike Rogers: No Hill briefing since 2011
President Barack Obama, speaking in Poland earlier Tuesday morning, said administration officials have consulted with Congress for quite some time about the possibility of a prisoner exchange.
But Rogers, appearing on MSNBCs Morning Joe, said Congress hadnt heard anything from the White House in years and that the administration only informed them of the deal after it had already taken place.

Bowe Bergdahls Vanishing Before Capture Angered His Unit
JUNE 2, 2014
Sometime after midnight on June 30, 2009, Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl left behind a note in his tent saying he had become disillusioned with the Army, did not support the American mission in Afghanistan and was leaving to start a new life.
He slipped off the remote military outpost in Paktika Province on the border with Pakistan and took with him a soft backpack, water, knives, a notebook and writing materials, but left behind his body armor and weapons startling, given the hostile environment around his outpost.

[George Washington wasn't president at the end of the Revolutionary War. Abraham Lincoln wasn't alive at the end of the Civil War. Harry S Truman, not FDR, was president at the end of the World War II.]
Obama Compares His Actions to Washington, Lincoln, FDR
June 3, 2014
"This is what happens at the end of wars," President Barack Obama said Tuesday when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban terrorists.
"That was true for George Washington, that was true for Abraham Lincoln, that was true for FDR. That's been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back. And that's the right thing to do."

Democratic challenger Tom Wolf leads Governor Corbett by 20 points in poll !!!
Tom Wolf, the businessman from York County, who won the Democratic nomination for governor in a primary race last month, tops Gov. Tom Corbett, 53 to 33 percent, a poll released this morning says.
The Quinnipiac University Poll of registered voters across the state shows that voters disapprove of Mr. Corbetts performance by 55 to 35 percent and 58 percent of voters say Mr. Corbett does not deserve to be re-elected.
"The election is five months away, but Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett looks like easy prey for Democratic challenger Tom Wolf," Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a press release.
Thirty percent of voters who disapprove of Mr. Corbett, in an open-ended question permitting any answer, point to education as the main reason; 8 percent explain their disapproval for Mr. Corbetts handling of fracking and the environment.
Nineteen percent of voters who approve of the governor point to the state budget, finance and taxes, and 12 percent cite the economy and jobs.
Mr. Wolf also tops Mr. Corbett on character traits, the poll says. Voters say that Mr. Wolf is honest and trustworthy (50 percent to 16 percent), that he cares about their needs and problems (55 to 18 percent), and that he has strong leadership qualities (58 to 13 percent).

Third poll shows Wolf with at least 20-point lead on Corbett !!!
Three polls in four days have all shown York County businessman Tom Wolf with at least a 20-point lead on Gov. Corbett. This morning, a Quinnipiac University Poll put Wolf ahead, 53-33 percent.
That follows a Public Policy Polling survey from yesterday, which put Wolf ahead 55-30 percent. A Rasmussen Reports poll on Sunday put Wolf ahead 51-31 percent.
The Quinnipiac release says Wolf escaped "apparently unscathed" from the four-way May 20 Democratic primary. It also showed voters disapproved of the job Corbett, a Republican first elected in 2010, is doing by a margin of 55-33 percent, with 58 percent saying he shouldn't be given a second term.
Corbett's policies on education were the biggest reason the registered voters in the poll say they won't vote for him. More than 50 percent of those polled said Wolf would do a better job on that issue, along with the economy and jobs, energy and the environment and health care.

More bad news for Corbett !!!
Raleigh, N.C. PPPs newest Pennsylvania poll finds Democrat Tom Wolf with a significant lead over incumbent Republican Tom Corbett in the race for Governor, despite support for Corbetts decision not to appeal a recent court ruling on gay marriage.
Tom Wolf currently holds a 25-point lead over incumbent Governor Tom Corbett, bolstered by their diverging approval/favorable ratings, as Wolf picks up 55% of the vote to Corbetts 30%. Pennsylvania voters have a strongly negative view on Corbetts job performance, with 27% approving and 58% disapproving of his performance.
On the other hand, voters have a favorable opinion of Tom Wolf by a similar margin, with 47% viewing him favorably compared to only 20% unfavorably. Wolf naturally has strong support amongst Democrats, with 79% of the vote, but also picks up almost a quarter (24%) of the vote from Republicans, and a large majority (63%) of the vote amongst independents.
