Why in God’s name would you release five ultra-terrorists who could in reality direct the destruction of a New York City or a Washington D.C. or any U.S. city with a 9/11 type attack as a condition for the release of a U.S. soldier? Or for that matter the release from captivity of any one of our citizens. It is an idiotic and reckless trade with terrorists who are out to destroy us.
There is no compelling reason for this act executed by President Obama, even considering humanistic impulses for the soldier and his family. And the outrageously stupid reason given by the White House that we never leave our soldiers behind is an absolute distraction and convenient misuse of the armed services directive in this case. You never endanger whole cities for the release of one soldier. Any private in the Army would be able to tell you that. If you are a responsible president, you do not endanger masses of your people for the life of a captured soldier. That White House reason blasted over the media by the president and his sycophants was a public relations fabrication wrapped in an armed services commandment that does not apply.
My anger at this decision is comprehensive and intense because it places America in extraordinary danger from terrorist attack for the sole purpose of making a president look good. The arrogance and ineptitude of it is abominable and despicable and indefensible. To demonstrate the insanity of the release of these five Taliban terrorist leaders, here is an apt analogy: Suppose during World War II, just as Hitler began his invasion of France on May 10, 1940, subsequently conquering that country and the whole of Europe in three weeks, that by some miraculous stroke of luck, British and French secret forces captured Hitler, Goering, Goebbels, Himmler, and Rommel on that date. And at the same time, a Nazi military unit captured a British private and then negotiated with the newly appointed British prime minister for this soldier’s freedom with the price being the release of those five Nazi tyrants. I know what the new Prime Minister Winston Churchill, named to that leadership position on May 10 as well, would have done. He would have told those Nazis in no uncertain terms to go to hell and to shove their ludicrous deal up their derrieres.
Anyone who has ever studied history and its lessons would know what Churchill would have done. So, we recognize Churchill as a magnificent and inspiring leader who would never have jeopardized the security of the world for one individual. Obama has never been a Churchill and never will be a Churchill. In fact, he’s worse than President Andrew Johnson, considered by many before the age of Obama to be our worst president. In fact, Obama is a reckless political hack and narcissist who just happens unfortunately to be our president.
Finally, here is another reason why this deal is so deadly. Any American, especially Americans in the armed services, is now a target for kidnapping by terrorists. Right now, the terrorists from Kabul to Islamabad to Sanaa to Tehran to Benghazi to Khartoum are all dancing in the streets and firing their AK47s in the air at their unbelievable victory over the Great Satan. And Obama and his apologists in his administration and in the Congress and in the media are making lame excuses about how great the One is to have negotiated this ridiculous fiasco, a disaster that is potentially worse than the Munich “peace” accord with Hitler in 1938.
