A lot is being said about the exchange of five high level terrorists for one Sgt. "Bowe" Bergdahl. Some claim that he deserted, and walked into the hands of the Taliban.
Based on all the evidence presented thus far, the President broke more than one law in releasing prisoners. Judge Andrew Napolitano explains it to Shepard Smith of Fox News in the video:
But there were five others released nearly a year ago, that did not get mentioned on the nightly news!
In late July of 2013 there was a release of 5 Guantanamo detainees as a good will gesture to the Taliban. In other words, they got five of their people back and we got the right to open peace talks with them. Do you find that the least bit submissive? It was not widely reported, because compared to the news of that time it seemed relatively insignificant.
Many are angry because there were many others who were wounded or killed in ambushes while searching for Sgt. Bergdahl.
Pictured above (from the Daily Mail) is one of the soldiers killed while searching for Bowe Bergdahl. The caption under the photo states:
"Hero: Second Lieutenant Darryn Andrews died in a Taliban ambush on Sept 4, 2009, after he tried to save colleagues who had been injured in an IED explosion. Top brass had told his parents that he died searching a Taliban commander. Now former comrades have come forward to say they were really looking for Bergdahl."

What I find is the most important fact in all of this, is that once again, the person occupying the White House has used executive fiat to circumvent the law and do as he damn well wants. The Dictator didn't stop there though.
It seems that Obama is going to by-pass the rule of law and have the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) write regulations that will cripple the coal industry if not completely destroy it, while not allowing the Keystone XL pipeline to be completed, and knowing quite well (he said so!) that it will force energy (electric) prices to soar. And that, he says will drive alternatives and efficiency initiatives. No, Barry. What it will do is create more unemployment and poor people. What it will do is make us even more dependent on foreign sources for energy. What it will do is deprive private industry of what control they have left, given excessive regulations, restrictions, and limits imposed by government, and done so by bureaucrats who know nothing about energy nor economics, and continue to erode freedom and free market enterprise.
What we have now is clear to see; there is an interloper holding the reins of the most powerful national military and he is aiming directly at the People.
