Today, Thursday, September 11, 2014, we remember thirteen years earlier the horrific attack of the United States of America, in New York City, at the World Trade Center Towers, in Washington D.C., at the Pentagon, and in a field in Pennsylvania. Despite that this very same USA is under threat once again in time to being attacked, still America and Lady Liberty still stand. God Bless America!
I have been reading how those Americans in uniform are reacting to the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from the Taliban this past weekend. There responses have been very much angry responses. Can you blame them?
This release also comes in the realization that it cost the lives of six American solders in an effort to rescue him. How is their families reacting to this recent revelation? I would not be surprised if they are very much outrage also.
From The Weekly Standard:
“That’s not true,” says Specialist Cody Full, who served in the same platoon as Bergdahl, and whose tweets over the weekend as @CodyFNfootball offered an early firsthand account of Bergdahl’s departure. “He was not a hero. What he did was not honorable. He knowingly deserted and put thousands of people in danger because he did. We swore to an oath and we upheld ours. He did not.”
“He walked off—and ‘walked off’ is a nice way to put it,” says Specialist Josh Cornelison, the medic in Bergdahl’s platoon. “He was accounted for late that afternoon. He very specifically planned to walk out in the middle of the night.”
“He was a deserter,” says Specialist Full. “There’s no question in the minds of anyone in our platoon.”
The sad thing about all this is that it will not only drive decent and good armed forces people from the armed, but may end up help to discourage via word of mouth those who want to join.
First, I want to thank those who served including those six who died looking for Sgt. Bergdahl. Second this releasing of the six “dream team” terrorist group will in time, come back to haunt the United States of America in a horrible way.

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.

Do not be surprise if there is going to be more to come from the Boston Marathon Bombing.
“A Quincy man has been charged with obstructing the investigation of the Boston Marathon bombings, the U.S. Attorney’s Office just announced.
Khairullozhon Matanov, 23, is charged in an indictment that was unsealed today, with one count of destroying, altering, and falsifying records, documents, and tangible objects in a federal investigation, specifically information on his computer, and three counts of making materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements in a federal terrorism investigation.

Now Mr. President Barack Hussein Obama, what is it going to be, for the United States of America, to lead as a global leader or to show that you are now “weak” as in “show restraint” ?
United States of America President Obama, giving today the graduation speech at the Army West Point Academy today explains what has been going on in regards as of late to the planned withdrawal of USA armed forces troops in the country of Afghanistan by 2016.
What it now all comes down to is that, to the new graduates from West Point and I do extend my congrats to them and to their families, that the United States of America is NOT your parent’s or even your grandparent’s United States of America.
Safe to say, to both America’s friends and enemies, that is NOW going to be viewed as WEAKNESS, no ifs, ands, or buts.
This is the United States of America in 2014, a nation that has now showed that being weak now pays off as well as being POLITICAL CORRECT.
WELCOME to United States Army leadership West Point Academy Class of 2014 and to the United States of America of 2014.

Today is Monday, May 26, 2014, Memorial Day.
The United States of America today pays tribute to the men and women who had not only have given their lives today in heroic service to the nation, and by addition, their very dear families as well. Not only those military men and women who died in service, but also those who have come home to deal with the injuries of war in both body and mind.
Though their day is in November, today at the yearly Memorial Day Parade in East Hartford, Connecticut, USA, today while recording a video of the parade on my cell phone, I was using very often two simple words which can be the theme for today: THANK-YOU. Using those two words to both the veterans who have served and to a large group of army national guards who also marched and are at the present time serving. The words thank-you never wears out and is the very best words Americans can offer on this day.
Offer these two words not just to the families of those who gave their all, the war injured, and the veterans, but also to all our first responders, police, fire fighters, and emt’s as well for they both serve and protect their communities 24/7.
Now more than ever, with the recent disgraceful VA medical scandal, it is much more important than ever before that we must say “thank-you” to those who have served our country.
