    So we gave up five hacks who had been in Gitmo without a trial for over ten years and now we are totally paranoid that they are a big threat. Makes a mockery of land of the free, home of the brave.

    “Except when we do "
    Then only for a deserter.

    The Taliban are not ‘terrorists’.

    For a captured soldier. The rest is as yet not determined.

    He could have just admitted “I have no idea what I’m doing…”

    Well when the White House agrees to do this 100percent (both GOP and DEM) then there is something going on that we don’t know about. As for him being a deserter.. we need more facts before we lable him. Could of been shell shock or something else going on. He could of just mentally lost it.. need more facts before start throwing on labels.

    You mean like when Dubya swapped prisoners for POWs? Or when Ronnie Raygun swapped weapons with Iran to try to destabilize Iraq?

    Besides, it wasn’t long ago the GOP was demanding the White House bring Bergdahl back. But whatever the President does, they’ll just whine.

    McCain: “I support a prisoner exchange to get Bergdahl back. Except if Obama does it.”

    We get one of our own back, who btw, knows a lot of things we don’t… and we give up 5 people who know all about…. and put them into ‘protective custody’ far from their home.

    Or perhaps, this is just big swing at the Afghans…..

    For what it is worth, it is my understanding that the Taliban is not, technically, designated as a terrorist group; we are at war with them, so that they were holding what’s his name as a prisoner of war. And there are often exchanges of prisoners of war. Just sayin’.

    The prison has brought so much international shame to the US that the government has made several attempts to repatriate those men to their original countries, none of which will have them. The prison can’t be shut down until it’s empty, so this got rid of several. After all, the alternative would be to keep them imprisoned for the rest of their natural lives at taxpayer expense.

    @Tigger

    What if some say he deserted and some say he didn’t? Then did he both desert and not desert?

    Iran-Contra: to the ’toon. (Maybe the tune should be "Know when to fold ’em.)

    And GW Bush let him so Bush would have an excuse to attack Iran.
