  1. Scandal, after scandal, after scandal, after scandal…………….etc.

    It’s not just America being the victim of having stupid people running the planet, it’s that it’s beginning to snowball – except the snowball isn’t accidentally out of control, it’s deliberate.

    Frances Fox Piven said it would be necessary to overwhelm the system.

    Now consider that the already massive snowball is just getting started.

  2. this trade stinks to high heaven, wasn’t this the guy that disappeared under strange circumstances?
    and what’s with his dad quoting the filthy Koran?

  3. They have been treated so well at Club Gitmo, that they might be back of their own volition. Wonder if we even provided them goats for their recreation at Gitmo. Naw, I don’t want to know.

  4. Anything Obama can do to denigrate America, he does.

    We should execute all the maggots in Guantanamo, stop taking prisoners, and unleash Hell on islam.

  5. …The only way for me to wash the Moooslim
    shit out of my mind is to play “Onward
    Christian Soldiers”…That song always
    makes me feel a lot better…You should
    try it!!!

  6. And this is a surprise?

    Bergdahl taught the Taliban everything he knew, and they didn’t need him any more. They wanted the Gitmo 5, they got the Gitmo 5. And BHO wrung some Rose Garden PR out of it.

    All-around win for the bad side, wouldn’t you say?

  7. Like Groucho said, the only upside to this mess is that these morons are usually killed on some battlefield within two weeks of getting out — and not that Ovomit has anything to do with it.

    I figure some of the few patriots left in the feral gubmint tell our guys in the field the GPS of the tracking signals these dirtbags have one them.

  8. John Boehner response: “….derp, derp, herderp…”

    ‘Effin’ sad excuse for leadership traitor.
