    And how many taken during the Bush years did nothing, but after being tortured, ’er excuse me, having “enhanced techniques” used on them, got home and became jihadist and suicide bombers?


    When our little note-writing deserter, I had no sympathy for him, just like a certain NG who deserted, but we don’t leave ours behind. Take note in fact of how many have died, rather often, going so far as being determined to recover the dead, and creating more.


    There’s more at work here than on the surface, and NOT telling our blabbermouth morons on the right in Congress, or even Feinstein, may not be so dumb. For example, I wouldn’t let Issa know the proposed actions of a janitor in the House Office Building.

    I have no idea what this cartoon is about. Did someone convince someone to trade a cow for a bean? What happened after that? Is there anyone who knows the obscure story on which this cartoon is based who can explain it to me?

    If the five guys sitting in Gitmo for years represent our nations security then we have a different concern to address.

    Mr. Enoki: Funny you should mention “Turnip Truck”. Here’s a week of THE MAN WHO JUST FELL OFF A TURNIP TRUCK. Enjoy.

    It’s an allegory about the boy who traded a cow for a magic bean. Obama traded 5 Taliban VIP’s for 1 deserting soldier. 5 guys died trying to find him and bring him home after he abandoned his post and went AWOL, and now we are trading 5 terrorists for 1 deserter. I feel bad for the families of those who died trying to find that worthless sack of crap.

    Republicans in Congress, including McCain, were ready to trade Bergdahl for the five Taliban members. GOP cheerleaders were all praying for the return of Bergdahl by any means necessary (their words) including the swap. A GOP candidate had a Facebook message up thanking God for his safe return — and 25 minutes later, she got the memo and took it down.

    The first commandment of the GOP: hate anything Obama does, even if you were begging for it five minutes ago.

    We don’t hate everything Obama does. Just the stupid things……….oh wait; I guess that is everything.

    Bush traded 500! Remember a thing called “Iran-Contra” where we gave weapons the US Army was short of to Iran? We have always gotten our soldiers back, now we decide what to do with him. These folks were the Gov’t of Afghanistan, what gives us the right to kidnap or hold members of a legal Gov’t for years and not charge them with anything? If your educated remember the “Star Courts” of England.

    Please give it up. Bush is truly responsible for what happened when he was in the White House. It doesn’t go away just because he changed residences and started painting his feet in the bathtub.

    Put it another way: are you going to stop blaming Obama for anything that happened between 2009 and 2017, and start blaming it all on President Gingrich (lord help us)?

    No, the bad that Obama does will still be his responsibility after he leaves office. Please try to learn from this. Otherwise, you’ll soon be blaming Angela Merkel for the Holocaust.
