While the idiots that think you can negotiate with evil people are all surprised that the Iranian Mullahs have decided to thumb their efforts. I have to admit that I expected nothing else. When GWB chose to let the Europeans talk and talk instead of acting back when, I pointed out the result would be the same. Obama, the narcissist that he is, ignored that record, and did all but drop to his knees … Read more

BEIRUT (Reuters) – Iraqi pilots who have joined Islamic State in Syria are training members of the group to fly in three captured fighter jets, a group monitoring the war said on Friday, saying it was the first time that the militant group had taken to the air.
The group, which has seized land in Syria and Iraq,
While I will admit that anyone making the case that there is plenty of competition for all the lying done by this WH, the argument can be made that the ludicrous claim they are transparent in their dealings and want an independent press can be seen as taking the cake. With so many key Obama people, all under investigation, destroying subpoenaed evidence, or the history of Obamacare and the lies and vote buying that … Read more
Keeping Bergdahl front and center in the news may seem counter productive (why rub our nose in it) but since this administration views his release (and the price paid for it) as a smashing success, much like bagging OBL, I suspect we will see no end to the Bergdahl Reunion Tour, I smell a WH beer summit in the offing. But is putting him back on active duty really a smart thing?

The differed between a dangerous and stupid cowboy-esque president, like, say GWB, and any much more enlightened man-of-the-world Nobel Peace prize holders, like, say Obama, and it was not that hard. All it took was the recent Bergdahl incident and things like this. And you know what it is? The leftist love the process and pretense of following the law. Yes, I said “pretense of following the law”, and I meant it.
This whole … Read more
That seems to be the strategy of this WH when it comes to the Bergdahl deal. It went from Obama got Bergdahl back and deserves your worship, to it was someone else is responsible now that I am getting hammered for doing this stupid thing, to oh shit!, they are on to us, so lets double back on what we said to deflect the anger. I have no doubt that had the raid to … Read more
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 … Read more
Many people wonder what, if anything, the military is going to do about Bergdahl. We know that everyone in his unit, everyone that has direct knowledge about the specifics of his disappearance were ordered to sign non disclosure agreements, a promise to keep their traps shut. But word has gotten out and although we don’t have all the facts (really, in this administration is that even possible?) we know enough to wonder why Bergdahl was … Read more
We knew he was really sucky at being President, who’d a thought he was equally abysmal at negotiating;

President Barack Obama apparently traded five jailed jihadis held in Guantanamo for one American soldier, despite federal law, which requires Congress to be notified before prisoners are transferred.
Obama used a Rose Garden press event to tout the surprise trade — which he won by making critical, last-minute concessions — while the parents of the freed
Well, the politicians in Washington got what they wanted, Shinseki resigned, they can all pat themselves on the back with a collective ,”See, the system works, this administration does in fact hold people accountable, and heads did roll, now, can we get back to talking about the Redskins?”, thereby washing their hands of the whole affair. Who says life is complicated on The Hill?
So, Shinseki resigned? BFD as far as I’m concerned, since this … Read more
