You obviously didn't even read the article.
“We regard the Taliban as an ENEMY COMBATANT in a conflict that has been going on, in which the United States has been involved for more than a decade. In this case--as you know we dealt with the Qataris in order to secure [Bergdahl’s] release--it was absolutely the right thing to do.”
Definition: Enemy combatant is a term historically referring to members of the armed forces of the state with which another state is at war.
The Taliban is an enemy combatant. Al-Queda is a Terrorist organization.
The National Counterterrorism Center makes no distinction between "Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGT)" (organizations that aided Al-Queda) and an actual Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) like Al-Queda.
That doesn't mean that the Afghan Taliban isn't a merciless group guilty of horrific acts. It just means they are not a Terrorist Organization along the lines of Al-Queda.
The Afghan Taliban’s leader, Mullah Mohammad Omar, who was the president of Afghanistan during the Taliban’s rule. The Afghan Taliban is a merciless group guilty of many crimes but that does not make them a terrorist organization.
I can't explain it any clearer. You are stuck on stupid.
What difference does it make????....

Quote the USGS on groundwater gold...
"•What are some positive products from volcanoes?
Groundwater heated by large, still-hot magma bodies can be tapped for geothermal energy. And over many thousands of years, heated groundwater has concentrated valuable minerals, including copper, tin, gold, and silver, into deposits that are mined throughout the world.-- From: Brantley, 1994, Volcanoes of the United States: USGS General Interest Publication."

Hillary Clinton took a good-natured shot at Karl Rove, who last month reportedly suggested she may have suffered a "traumatic brain injury," while discussing her health in an interview that aired Friday.

"I know he was called 'Bush's Brain' in one of the books written about him, and I wish him well," Clinton said when ABC News' Diane Sawyer asked what she'd like to say to the Republican strategist.

That Marine you are talking about illegally smuggled a gun into Mexico. He broke Mexican law. Funny when the DOJ allowed gun smuggles into Mexico in hopes of breaking up a smuggling ring, you conservatives were all over that. Now that a Marine is caught red handed....you defend him.
so what you are saying is that American exceptionalism should allow Americans to break laws in other countries without facing justice.

Thomas Jefferson’s Iftar

“Ramadan,” said President Obama at a White House iftar dinner in 2010,“is a reminder that Islam has always been a part of America. The first Muslim ambassador to the United States, from Tunisia, was hosted by President Jefferson, who arranged a sunset dinner for his guest because it was Ramadan — making it the first known iftar at the White House, more than 200 years ago.”

The dinner to which the president referred took place on December 9, 1805, and Jefferson’s guest was Sidi Soliman Mellimelli, an envoy from the bey (chieftain) of Tunis who spent six months in Washington. The context of Mellimelli’s visit to the United States was a tense dispute over piracy on American merchant vessels by the Barbary states and the capture of Tunisian vessels trying to run an American blockade of Tripoli.

Mellimelli arrived during Ramadan, and Jefferson, when he invited the envoy to the president’s house, changed the meal time from the usual hour of 3:30 p.m. to “precisely at sunset” in deference to the man’s religious obligation.

Jefferson’s knowledge of Islam likely came from his legal studies of natural law. In 1765, Jefferson purchased a two-volume English translation of the Quran for his personal library, a collection that became, in 1815, the basis of the modern Library of Congress.

Bush was not a very good president, not very good but better than the boy currently in office nobama. Folks on the left, at least the far left like you, never have a reasonable answer for nobama's actions so you always go to your fall back positions;
- It is Bush's fault
- But Bush did the same thing
- Nobama did not know, at least until he heard it on the news
- All who denounce nobama are racists
You are simple trolls who spew the company/party line.

Yeahoo, for a Demorat, you push the envelope to a died-in-the-wool Socialist? You're right in Barack Hussein Obama's wheelhouse? The only things you worry about are your trips to the welfare office? Oh that's right it's Saturday, you'll have to wait until Monday?
