It was announced today that Army Sargent Bowe Bergdahl who was a Taliban prisoner in Afghanistan was released, today. It is reported that SEALS are escorting him home.
The Obama Administration traded five Afghan Taliban prisoners at Guantanamo to secure Bergdahl’s release.
This is a good thing. One American soldier is worth a lot to us. Thank God we will have him home.
Now, the President needs to get to work to get others released from foreign imprisonment. Marine Sargent Andrew Tahmooressi was jailed after he took a wrong turn at the US/Mexican border and was detained by Mexican military authorities because Tahmooressi had weapons in his truck. These weapons are legal in the United States, but not in Mexico.
So far, the US government has not shown interest in rescuing this American Marine who is unjustly in a Mexican prison where he is being beaten regularly.
Mr President. It’s time to get busy. Free Sgt. Tahmooressi.
It is shameful. The recently exposed video of four US Marines urinating on the corpses of dead
ragheads Taliban freedom fighters is turning out to be another scandal of international proportions.
Our nation is in a tough fight. This war on terror is having more setbacks than my New Year’s resolutions. It seems like every time things are going OK, somebody just has to screw it up to make it tough on everybody else.
Where did those Marines learn their manners? I’ll bet their mothers did not teach them to urinate on corpses, Muslim or not. We have sent our best and brightest into a thankless war with the aim of being examples of the best America has to offer.
So, what was going on? Did those Marines just leave a beer party, shoot a bunch of Muslim terrorists, and then urinate on them? Why do things like Abu Ghraib persist to take place and embarrass us?
Those damned Marines got it all wrong.
You are supposed to piss on the bastards, and then shoot them.
