What if it wasn't Bowe Bergdahl?
Look at the headlines above... You know Obama must be floundering if even CNN, Time and Newsweek aren't backing his latest foible.
I'm fairly sure we'll all agree that this is a disaster. That the fact that six soldiers died on missions searching for what appears to be a deserter (not to mention enemy sympathizer) is bad enough, but to know that FIVE top operatives were released that could orchestrate the deaths of many, many more...is virtually unbelievable.
But, my question is...what if it wasn't Bowe Bergdahl (Weird dad a Ziggy Stardust fan or just can't spell?)?
What if if were Matt Maupin (RIP) or Pat Tillman (RIP)? What if it were an honorable, American loving soldier that was serving and fighting for their country with pride. And we knew they were being tortured or their health was in jeopardy.
I know it's easy to say we don't negotiate with terrorists, but I am also not a hypocrite and I know if it were my son, I'd want anything to be done to get him back.
And I know people say this opens the door to military members being kidnapped for money --but I think I'd rather them kept alive for the hope of money than decapitated fro the glory of Allah...
