Col David Hunt ‘we lost 14 soldiers’ looking for Bergdahl


All we need to know. Obama keeps on giving. He simply claims  our wars have ended. After all, this is the President that claims he can make the oceans  recede.  He claims we never leave anyone on the battlefield. Forget that he was a deserter. For that, we will bear the cost of letting loose five terrorists to wreak havoc on the world. I cannot imagine how the families of the soldiers killed looking for this fellow must feel.

    How do we prosecute an alleged AWOL grunt for treason when the commander in chief has made his term about little more than a plethora of treasonable acts from crippling our economy to undermining our borders, our constitution, our international standing, giving aid and comfort to our enemies, along with stirring up antimosity between the races, etc, etc, etc.

      If he is not prosecuted, which he will not, the morale factor for our military will be in the toilet. Mission accomplished.

        I’m sure you recognize the “How do we prosecute” as sarcastic rhetoric. I agree he should stand trial in military court. That being said, most likely, while many veterans languish in the VA system, this “hero” will be treated with priority status not unlike the men of the peaceful religion detained in GITMO.

    If everything we are learning is true than he should be tried as a traitor and he should be held responsible for these deaths. As for Obama saying we don’t leave people behind, perhaps he should explain that to the families of Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods…..

      I am with you. Deserting has always been one step away from traitor, and he may be that as well.

    You don’t negotiate with terrorists, period. By negotiating for that man’s release, the United States has opened itself up to future demands for the release of terrorists that it holds prisoner. The soldiers that died looking for him died for nothing because of the President’s actions. The American public is endangered by the President’s actions. American credibility is weakened by going back on our policy courtesy of the President, and our allies are also at risk courtesy of this deal. How is any of this a win?

    We should never abandon an American soldier for any reason, even desertion. But neither should we abandon our principles and our honor to get a soldier back. When Admiral Jim Stockdale was in the Hanoi Hilton, he was bitter about America compromising it’s values regarding the POWs being held there. He remained true to his honor and took torture to defy his Vietnamese captors. He felt betrayed by his country when he learned of his government’s weakness. It was a weakness that allowed men to cooperate with the enemy and get away with it, and that infuriated Admiral Stockdale who sacrificed much for the sake of honor.

    Now America has gone even further down the road of dishonor by negotiating with wanton killers. What we are witnessing is the inherent weakness of the left. Liberty demands strength of both character and moral fiber. The left only requires obedience and this is why the weak find a home in Marxism and socialism. As we watch our President and his minions duck and dodge and appease, know that lives will be abruptly cut short for the weakness displayed by them.

    The one question that should be asked by the media as they mouth slogans such as “America doesn’t leave anyone behind,” is if that is so, why did Americans die in the dessert of Benghazi awaiting reinforcements that never came?

      Well said. This is now the beginning of the next phase of terrorism. Here and abroad.

      There’s nothing new about trading prisoners. There’s nothing new about losing men, even when searching for alleged deserters. And there’s nothing new about unpleasantness in war. Luckily, we currently have a President who is not a sleazy con looking for war, so at least we’re not making any new unpleasantness.

        It must be a real comfort to the families of those who died searching for this fine fellow who strangely packed up his belongings the day before and sent them home. Wrote a letter stating he was deserting according to the NYTimes, not exactly a right wing rag. We have indeed left men behind. That is a urban legend that we always get our men. Thanks for your thoughts.

        It must be a real comfort to the families of those who died fighting for who the hell knows what in Iraq and Afghanistan that that we accomplished essentially nothing but to bring misery on ourselves and others over there, bunkerville. I can understand why they wanted this guy. Apparently it’s too complex for you. But then you cons are always shooting first and never care to get any answers anyway.

        You may be surprised, but I was opposed to the war as it unfolded. At best it should have been in and out. The discussion is about this fine fellow, not the war. That is for another post. There are not many so called cons that believe in Nation building. Be careful in lumping us all together, There was no way we were going to win an Afghan war. The British first, and Russia later learned that lesson. The world needs to take care of its own problems, we need to solve are own.
