Only in Obama’s vida loca can the release of a traitor warrant a press conference in the White House Rose Garden and an Arabic phrase of praise.
But don’t expect Obama’s heaping helping of crow change anything, except how Obama and his minions spin the deal.
As reported in the Washington Post regarding the legality of the move by Obama,
“I believe it made Americans less safe,” Boehner said. “Knowing that the United States does not negotiate with terrorists is one of our greatest protections, and now it is compromised.” Bergdahl’s case has prompted questions over whether the Obama administration handled the prisoner swap legally. Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, also provoked criticism when she said after Bergdahl’s recovery that he had served “with honor and distinction.” She later acknowledged the remark was controversial and said she was referring to the soldier’s decision to enlist in the first place. “That, in and of itself, is a very honorable thing,” she said.
Anybody expect Obama to walk this statement back. Or will he do as he does in all scandals, and that is pretend they don’t exist. Let’s see if Congress get enough balls to hold Obama to the standard of white, non-affirmative action presidents.
