The Obama administration’s decision to trade five senior Muslim terrorists who were being held at Guantánamo for a cowardly deserter appears to have had unintended consequences. It now looks like that decision combined with Obama’s dithering when the military found out where Kayla and other hostages were being held is responsible for this young woman’s death.
After six years “unintended consequences” and “dithering” are the twin hallmarks of Barack Obama’s presidency.
The one thing that will never be a homework of the Obama administration is “accountability.”
As Kayla’s brother Eric said “Well, if they’re gonna let five people go for one person, why won’t they do this?” And it’s a good question. The Obama administration brought nothing but confusion and misdirection to this whole mess, starting with the botched pullout of US troops from Iraq.
The pullout was nothing more than window dressing for a failed president and his failed foreign policy, and a sop far left base of the Democratic Party.
That now brings us to the question of Bowe Bergdahl. Months ago we heard that the Army was moving forward with the General Court Martial charging Bergdahl with desertion. It appears that the White House put that decision on hold.
Will Pres. Obama pardon Bergdahl? Or will he force a nonjudicial punishment? It looks like, in terms of accountability, Bowe Bergdahl is the Army’s equivalent of Barack Obama.
