Both Hal and Rich have visited the insane deal where the WH released some seriously dangerous people held at Club Gitmo so they could bring home a deserter and traitor. Rich hit it on the head when he pointed out that the WH did this over objections from the military and the intell community, going completely around congress and the law, which is very problematic. And I definitely agree with Hal that they did this now specifically to get the VA scandal, which bodes really ill for Obamacare and the idiots that keep pretending Obamacare won’t be an epic disaster that destroys the American healthcare system, out of the news. But there is another angle to this that is not being discussed by the LSM, and I suspect it’s because this is a ticking time bomb.
Sure, Obama might have released these jamokes and given the military orders to just drone strike them to death as soon as possible, but I doubt that’s going to work out that way. If Obama actually let these people out so they could just kill them, then he has some serious balls and I guess I would have to point out that he is far more blood thirsty than I would have credited him with. Certainly earns that Nobel peace prize of his in my mind. Mind you, I have no problem with killing these terrorists, because I believe dead terrorists are less of a problem, but that the fucking leftist scumbags that treat terrorists better than our own troops suddenly adopt this policy, after crucifying Boosh for doing the same and pretending that killing terrorists just made more of them, is something worthy of scorn. But that’s not the time bomb I am thinking about.
And yes, there is going to be some nasty political fallout from the fact that Bergdahl was a deserter and a collaborator with the enemy. When the people that died trying to get this scumbag back are being dissed by this idiotic decision, there should be some nasty fallout, and while I see the LSM trying hard to provide the WH cover, it is going to cause harm to the leftards. I expect a lot of retaliatory strikes from this WH against anyone they feel has not helped them contain the damage. There is a history of retaliation there. But in the end, this is going to hurt the WH beyond their calculated distraction to the VA scandal doing damage to Obamacare. But this is also not the time bomb I foresee.
The big question I have not heard anyone ask is what happens if one of these clowns they released to get the deserter/collaborator back has a successful operation that kills Americans, especially if it happens before this administration is out of office. I guess the LSM would help the fucking crooks in the WH hide that if the target was military, definitely if not in the US, and probably even if it was there, considering the way they have handled terror attacks against US targets, but if the target was not military, and especially if it was in the US, it would be a PR disaster for the class warriors. I am sure they will cover it up – LOOK! A video about Islam! – but this should be something so disastrous that it would kill this administration.
And no, I am not rooting for people to die, just because I think that would harm this administration. That’s the way progressives with their eye on victory at any cost think and work. But that these losers have not contemplated this scenario, or worse, have contemplated it and think they can avoid it, shows me how inept and unworthy of leadership they are.
