Author's Note

Baby Ricochet
President Obama's administration recently negotiated the release of one Sargent Bowe Bergdali from the hands of the Taliban in exchange for 5 prisoners from Guantanamo bay. That's the place Obama said he's close back in 08. Naturally the right wing media machine attacked the president for "negotiating with terrorists" and claimed the deal was illegal. America "negotiates with terrorists" every fucking day. One of our strategies in Iraq was paying off war lords and imams with large followings who were fighting against us to play for our side against the heavy influx of foreign fighters coming into the country and it was a damn good strategy. We bribed Clerics, imams, government officials, we promised jobs, we promised stability, we promised weapons, we promised aid of all sorts, we used threats, we used corporal punishment. We negotiated with anyone who we could make listen to move things forward in Iraq and now the right wing machine is attacking our president for what has been accepted policy decades. The captya reads "Smackful.' I can think of a few on the right I'd like to give a smackful;

Sometimes we just have to do what we gotta do. Gotta give a little to get a little. I see nothing wrong with that. I believe in no man left behind. If we gotta give up a few prisoners to get some of ours back, so be it. Let's trade em, and when we're done, we'll find a way to make up for what we lost. But if we aren't willing to do what we must for our own soldiers..... Let's ship some of our politicians over there, let the enemy take them for a while, and see how fast they are crying out for a rescue. I bet they'll break pretty quick.

I agree brother. Those sanctimonious sycophants need to be slapped! They don't support us they use us until we are no longer needed.

Hi Baby, you are right here, I am of the same feeling. What do you make of some of the soldiers feeling Bowe should not be treated as a 'hero.' I have only heard a little here and there, and I know it is a separate thing from your piece.

America negotiating with terrorists? Do I not recall a hissy fit and a party acting like terrorists to shut down the government last year?
Excuse my bastardization of politics but I could not let the opportunity for a good joke pass.
In all seriousness I find their actions disgusting at the very least and I feel that their breed of intellect is fortunately dying out. Well expressed.
