Unavoidable

When critics of the deal have suggested that releasing five senior Taliban members was too high a price to pay for Bergdahl, the Obama administration has maintained that the U.S. military’s commitment to rescue all of its members held in captivity meant that the deal was unavoidable. Rogers made it clear that he disagrees.

Would it have been too high a price to trade Obama for Bergdahl?

I would have supported that deal myself.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Agreed – with only one stipulation, they wouldn’t be allowed to send Barky back.

    Oh, and he’d have to take Moochelle with him (they could leave the kids here; it might still be possible to “de-program” them…), but his golf clubs would have to stay here.

    I’m sure his “soul-brothers” would be able to fit him out over there as needed…

  2. Gee, I don’t know. That’s a tough choice. Not sure I can go for that. Oh, ok you can have Obama but only if you take Moochelle, Biden, Pelosi and Reid and Fauxcahontas and Billary. Oh, and Sean Penn. Fast Times at Kandahar High for him.

    Oh and on second thought you can keep Bergdahl. Just make sure he is locked in a cell with the others.
