Senior intel official suspects U.S. paid cash ransom for Bergdahl too « Hot Air

Can’t be true. Ransoms are paid for hostages, and Jay Carney assured me Bergdahl was a prisoner, not a hostage.

“Obama’s government” was desperate to get him back for a number of reasons:  As a “Look, Squirrel” distraction from the exploding VA scandal (which accounted for the sudden haste; as a means of releasing the worst of the worst of the barbarian savage Taliban leadership held at Gitmo, as prelude for dumping the rest of them; and as a presumed political triumph for Obama, leading into the fall election.

So, how’s that working out for “your government,” President Dumbtard?

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. Speaking of monetary concerns…anyone know whether Sgt. Bergdahl has yet been proffered his “back pay” for those years he was being “held prisoner by the enemy”?

    Which would, of course, include a premium sum for “combat pay”, yes? Plus some sort of “compensation” for other benefits he accrued while he was a “prisoner”?
