Driving The VA Scandal Away (Bergdahl Release)

Driving The VA Scandal Away (Bergdahl Release)


What took place this past week in the release from captivity, of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl simply is being done to drive away the recent VA scandal. While it is important to not leave any military service people behind, what took place this past weekend is simply very disturbing.

From The Hill website:

“The Sunday shows were packed with administration officials defending the decision and Republicans launching into political attacks against President Obama and the administration for transferring five Taliban members from Guantanamo Bay to Qatar in exchange for the release of Bergdahl, the 28-year-old whom the Taliban released on Saturday.

“Disturbing” was how Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) put it on ABC’s “This Week.”
“Dangerous,” echoed House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) on CNN’s “State of The Union.”

“We need more information about the conditions of where they’re going to be and how,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on CBS’s “Face The Nation.”

 This indeed is disturbing and my biggest concern is that these released terrorists could very well kill more Americans in the future. I wonder very much what must the families of the victims and heroes of September 11th, 2001 must be thinking?

All the more reason why this will just make the United States of America look much weaker in the eyes of the world.

While it is wonderful to get this former POW release back to his family, how this was done brings up a lot more questions then there are answers.
