So, naively, his team of ignorant, arrogant and incompetent people, which includes himself, thought why not empty GITMO it by releasing the imprisoned jihadists rather than trying them…. Like in fishing, “catch and release”…. Most of the released GITMO terrorists have returned to fighting the West, and the majority has been involved in the murdering of Coalition Troops.
What should one call that? Another “Catastrophic Obama Policy Failure”? Or worse…. It really is criminal. And Bergdahl should be made to pay for his desertion, having caused colleagues to be killed seeking to take him back from his terrorist captors.
Meanwhile in Afghanistan, 28-year-old Farkhunda was wrongly accused of burning the Koran and beaten to death in an act of violence that has shamed the country. It is strange to think that Kabul and Tehran were two of the most liberal and modern cities in the Middle East/Central Asia 40 years ago, were women studied and were encouraged to engage in business and policies. Since then, the Islamists have turned back the clock, unfortunately assisted by ignorant Western countries not understanding the hidden forces they were playing with, when the US betrayed the Shah of Iran and engaged the Mudjahadin to fight the communists.
Then we walked away and declared victory…., total nonsense.
We, the West, owe it to the women of Afghanistan and Iran not to forget them, to keep on supporting them as we also know that they are our key allies to fight jihadism locally, thereby denying the jihadists their new recruits.
How will Hillary escape trouble or worse this time? In the end, it will be about Benghazi. I wonder how Gen. Grange managed to become involved in this scandal? Bizarre.
