Large Cash Payment Might Have Been Added to the Five Top Terrorists Traded for Deserter Bergdahl

Why would our terrorist enemies settle for five of their leaders in return for a deserter and probable collaborator? They knew that when dealing with Obama, they could get even more:

Tuesday on NewsMax TV, former U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. Oliver North said U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was not a prisoner of war because he was actually being held “hostage” by the Haqqanis, a terrorist group separate from the Taliban and associated heavily with al Qaeda.

North said he knew there was at least a $1 million dollar ransom being demanded for Bergdahl some time ago so he estimated the price paid to release the hostage must be close to $5-6 million now.

Doubt has been expressed as to whether releasing top Taliban commanders really benefited the Haqqanis, who are as much a criminal gang as a political entity. Why would they give up a guy who was reportedly helping them turn cell phones into detonators?

They would be more likely to make the deal for money. The Taliban leaders were thrown in because Obama wanted them freed, to help clear out Gitmo or for ideological reasons.

No need for outrage; $5–6 million is a drop in the bucket compared to the expenses run up during the pointless campaign to find Bergdahl just in terms of money, leave alone the precious lives lost. Anyway, taxpayers still have plenty of cash, for the time being.

money down toilet
Better than giving it to terrorists.

    If a tree fell in the forest and no media outlet would cover it regardless of how much damage it did, would anyone hear about it or care?

    No matter what Obama does, it immediately becomes a non-story. Pursue it and it becomes an “attack on the first Black President”. The media will NOT let their precious boy, their “historic” king, their man-god be responsible for ANYTHING. Protect the Boss at all costs.

    Pay off the terrorists? Swap Taliban leadership for a deserter? Make the U.S. look weaker than ever? Paint a target on the head of every American?

    Yup…and not a word will be said about it.

    This is the sound of one hand clapping.

    Maybe it doesn’t matter but; Shouldn’t someone be asking how many US Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines “jumped the fence, dropped the weapon, violated his/her oath to the Constitution, went to the other side, defected/deserted/abandoned the post, life and nationalism”, during the “war” which is still active in Afghanistan? Why is there no comparison as to how many other “deserters” there have been
    since the start of the “war”, I won’t count that Fort Hood COCKSUCKER islam convert. Was, or is Bowe the ONLY one to do this?

    What is your point? Is Bobo the ONLY one to ever defect? No. So what? He’s the only one that we’ve traded terrorists for. He’s the only one who’s dad praises Allah in the Rose Garden, then hugs the President. He’s the only one of who it’s been said he “served with honor and distinction” by the White House (flunky S. Rice).

    Bottom line, deserters should get life in prison. Collaborators should be shot.

    Period.

    Wait… your story comes from Ollie North? THAT Ollie North? Well, I suppose if anyone understands dealing with terrorists and funding an illegal war, and providing Iran with thousands of missiles, all against the law… wait. Obama didn’t do all that stuff. Just did a legal exchange for a U.S. soldier for five guys we couldn’t even make charges stick against. The reason these attacks on Obama disappear is because they are all lies and fantasies and speculation. It’s so easy for all of America to see through your ridiculous fake conspiracies that you come out with every time Obama moves a muscle. Boy. Cried. Wolf. And in this case, there is NEVER going to be a wolf. Obama’s a bog standard politician, center right.

    Mr. Mentalo, Was there any other deserter/defection/abandoned post person in the entire Afghanistan conflict?
    My point was…that Dave should get the story here first, and I was giving him insight to what people will want to know, SOON. Also, how much of my comments are being edited, without my permission.

    The complicit media hasn’t reported any other deserters, particularly not any others who abandoned their posts, so how do you expect Dave to know? What makes you think someone is editing your comments? Paranoid much?

    Obamacare, straight out of a Republican think tank in the 90s. The Heritage Foundation: http://www.forbes.com/sites/theapothecary/2011/10/20/how-a-conservative-think-tank-invented-the-individual-mandate/

    You didn’t like a 2,000 page law? Any liberal would have put it like this: one page, one sentence fragment, one phrase: Medicare for all.

    You know, this is just a version of ‘blame Bush’. The left always tries to blame TRUE Consevatives when their grand plans (in this case the PPACA, aka obamacare) go down in flames. Yes, there are some who call themselves conservatives who’s actions and words prove they are not. Finding some evidence to show some questionable ‘conservatives’ paid lip service to the individual mandate during the effort to defeat Hillarycare (note they talked about it, but never actually implemented it) makes it a conservative idea? REALLY? Is that the best you got? And then you use that to blame conservatives for obamacare and it’s obvious failures?

    yeahRITE, so you’re claiming that Obama and the Democrats, who wrote that 2,000 page law, aren’t liberals?

    You know, I give credit where due and Obama is a master at the Clinton playbook:

    Do as little as possible, take credit loudly when things go right even when you had NOTHING to do with it, act surprised and angry and point a lot of fingers when anything goes wrong, proclaiming loudly, “I had nothing to do with that but it really chaps my hide!”

    I think Obama was floundering to find some way to make himself look good and divert attention from the whole VA scandal. So he jumped at this opportunity to both achieve his goal of closing GITMO before he leaves office AND looking like he was pro-military, when we all know he isn’t. He didn’t think it through. UPDATE on the released taliban: We know they’re all going to go back to using terrorism to target and kill Americans, one has now come forward and stated so publicly.

    First of all, blame Bush? Obamacare and it’s 90s origin have nothing to do with Bush. I only blame Bush for what he’s actually responsible for. Which is quite a bit of stuff, regardless of how many years have passed and who has been President since him.

    Second, you acknowledge that there are “conservatives in name only” but you can’t make the leap that not every Democrat is actually liberal? Really? Okay. Just remember you can never call another politician ‘the most liberal ever’ because you already pinned that on Obama. You’ll regret that if Bernie Sanders or Alan Grayson runs.

    Third, I’m not trying to separate Obama from Obamacare. It’s a limited success now, and will have lasting positive effects. And it will ALWAYS be associated with Obama. You’ll regret nicknaming it that.
