Didn't you see it coming? The release -- let's call it a rescue -- of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from the clutches of the Taliban after 5 years should have been a feel-good story for all of us as well as his friends and family in these days of supporting the heroic troops, but a country pleased with anything, even for an afternoon, just can't be allowed by the party that has long made it it's business to tell us just how awful things are and just how it's Obama's fault. As you know, some Guantanamo "detainees" yet to be tried for anything, were taken custody of by agents of Qatar in exchange for Bergdahl's release. Even an old cynic like me went looking for a flag to fly.
Before the rest of us had finished saying "welcome home," Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe, the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, sternly warned America that this would have dire but unidentified consequences for all of us and of course "the troops." Let the Inquisition, the disgusting denunciations and fear mongering begin. What did you expect?
That Obama, said Oklahoma Jim, “clearly violated laws” that require him to notify Congress 30 days before any transfer of terrorists from Guantanamo Bay. He betrayed us all, as is his wont, by failing to explain to Congress how the threat of releasing the satanic horde had been substantially mitigated before uncorking the Guantanamo bottle and thus denied the Grand Old Bastards the opportunity to filibuster, stall, vilify and ultimately prevent the recovery of Bergdahl, who, up until now, had been an illustration of Obama's uncaring negligence.
So stop your anti-American celebrating, Jodi and Bob Bergdahl and the town of Hailey, Idaho. This is an impeachable offense, and your favorite son be damned. And don't you dare bring up the sale of arms to our enemy Iran to bargain for the release of hostages because that's entirely different. Reagan was a Republican and it's OK when we do it. Besides Obama has deprived the depraved party of their ability to denounce him for neglecting Americans in captivity and that's unforgivable.
And of course, say some of the True American Patriots: sometimes our sainted troops aren't worth supporting.
"Bergdahl is a stank-ass hippie who accidentally joined the Army and decided to smell some Afghan flowers one night"So he wasn't worth the time and effort even searching for him and it was, as when that Communist Clinton tried to punish al Qaeda with his "Monica Missiles," all a cover up for the Benghazi scandal, or the VA scandal or whatever scandal we are selling this week.
"And, oh, yeah, Bergdahl will be treated as a hero instead of the little coward deserter that he is. If he makes it to a court martial, he’ll get slapped on the wrist, get an honorable discharge and go on his merry way to co-write a book."He's a traitor and deserter for sure say the patriots in and out of the military, proving, if proof is needed that there is no God who punishes those who need so badly to be punished. Of course the punishment of living in a country that doesn't punish the Republicans is punishment for the rest of us.
