Letter: President is putting our country at risk

In return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a Marine held captive for five years in Afghanistan after he left his post, President Obama released the five most dangerous Islamic terrorists at Gitmo. They are supposed to be monitored in Qatar for a year, but Qataris are already disavowing that agreement — a heavy price to pay for a deserter.

The White House and Susan Rice say he served honorably while his platoon-mates say he left them, and the White House staff have literally called them liars for saying he deserted. Subsequent searches for him also cost lives.

These terrorists should have already been tried and convicted of crimes against their people and us. I am sure Qataris have computers and cellphones they can use to plan their next attack against the U.S. and its interests. Surely a better deal could have been brokered.

Getting this Marine back was the perfect excuse for Obama to release these monsters. He’s wanted to let them go since he became president. From the beginning he’s bent over backwards trying to please Muslim nations, praising the Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt. He can’t do enough for Muslims.

He should have already been impeached, but the House of Representatives doesn’t have the courage to indict, and the Senate worships him. Shamefully, now that he can’t run for office again, he’ll do whatever he pleases, with his lawless compadre, Holder.

What kind of president puts his own country at risk?

    Ms Bobin you are correct there is nothing in Ms Glicks letter of any substance. It is all hearsay from where ever. Some people when they hear something from someone they think is important they believe if they repeat it they will sound important too. Little do they know...

    Ms.Glick said no such thing, She said, "I am sure Qataris have computers and cellphones they (the 5 released terrorists) can use to plan their next attack against the U.S. and its interests."[rolleyes]

    Liebich, I`ll stand by what I said, you seem to be a YES man. I am aware Barry traded 5 terrorists for a Sgt. in the Army, he was not a Marine. Susan Rice and others in the White House say he served honorably, until he deserted. More is not known than known, or perhaps you can fill me in.

    If we were all "convicted" on the hearsay of our neighbors, there wouldn't be a free person in the world.

    And wasn't it the Republican Congress who went up in arms about transferring these "detainees" - a misnomer if ever there was one - to US prisons? And a refusal to have them tried on US soil?

    Maybe we should have listened to racist radio personality Laura Ingraham who suggested that we should have traded Eric Cantor - one Jew - instead of 5 Taliban leaders. SHE thought it was a BETTER deal.

    Most of it.

    Have the Qataris EVER attacked the US - THAT IS WHAT MS. GLICK states.

    All the rest is hearsay.

    Where is your PROOF that the Qataris have renegged on their part of the deal? InfoWars?

    [lol]

    Anyone with a brain would know that Ms. Glick has copied and pasted her information from chain emails and from watching FOX News.

    "Who" am I, Ed?

    Someone who HAS the brains to not listen to misinformed people like Ms. Glick who love to spread nonsense.

    The letter states the should have been tried. Didn't Obama attempt to try them and was stopped by the right wingnuts in congress?
    "Surely a better deal could be brokered" Glick has no way of knowing this.
    "Getting the Marines back was the perfect excuse to set these monsters free", speculation at best.
    "He's wanted to set them free since he became President", again I guess Glick lives in Obama's head. He wanted to shut down Gitmo and try these people.
    He should have already been impeached, false and for what exactly and I ask exactly what crime has been broken.
    Is that enough false information and misrepresentation? Lose accusations and falsehoods are childish and ignorant and serve no purpose in intelligent debate.

    1. Leave no soldier behind. End of story
    2. Sort the facts out later and deal with it.
    3. Just how long are you to keep detainees at Gitmo. Would we stand this if Americans were still being held in Viet Nam because they were considered "dangerous".
    4. Serving honorably means he signed up, volunteered for service. Sort out the facts later hopefully after a hearing of evidence not this rush to judgement trial by media.
    5. Why haven't the detainees been given hearings to determine their "Dangerousness". Isn't the exchange of prisoners a neat way of getting our soldier back and CLEARING OUT the biggest shame on America: Gitmo?
    6. Congress failing to impeach may be due to the fact that therei is no evidence of malfeasance. I know you and other conservatives (Tea Party types) think just being democrat is enough to raise the impeachment chant. Sorry to inform you, this is a free country.

    Ed, wondering which part of this bag of fabricated and misinformation YOU think is true?

    Maybe the part about Qatar's "next attack" on the US?

    [lol]

    Glick: Most of what you had to say in your post is correct, however Sgt. Bergdahi served in the Army, not the Marine Corps. The people that know little to nothing concerning Sgt. Bergdahi had the most to say concerning the release of five Dangerous Islamic Terrorists, since at no time were they there and had to rely on second hand information. Now for the troops that were searching for this " deserter", and lives lost in the process, I would take the word of the troops that looked for Bergdahi, since they were on sight at the time. All in the White house should stick to facts, though that might not be a good idea since they are not aware of the facts, what you don`t know, make up.
