The Taliban "Dream Team" Has Not Dribbled A Ball In Thirteen Years

The starting five of the released Taliban are now an average age near 50 years. The team has been imprisoned all that time in the most notorious prison in the world, tortured, force-fed, humiliated, separated from each other. They still have another year in the penalty box under house arrest in the sands of Qatar.

So WTF is everyone talking about, would you put these guys in the game? They are probably barely able to wipe their own asses, let alone ever be collectively or individually of great concern......but the return of the Last Warrior is cause for celebration, screw the media and the GOP.

Edit: By the way, every brown man wearing turban and a beard is not AQ, you simple, lying, racist morons. And that includes the Duck Dynasty crowd and their bandana, put a turban on any of them and you could call them AQ also, you idiots and traitors.

Fox News and the GOP have lost their minds in attacking military tradition and ethics.

“There’s something strangely inconsistent about a nation and a press that will praise you when you say be nonviolent toward Jim Clark, but will curse and damn you when you say be nonviolent toward little brown Vietnamese children. There is something wrong with that."

Martin Luther King, Jr., speaking at the height of the racial and Vietnam wars of the '60's.


Bengazhi two weeks ago and since forever, then the VA thing, now the prisoner swap thing, nothing seems to stick. The incredible quick pivot to the latest, greatest nouveau outrage is an overplayed hand.

GOP operatives seemed to have two ex army guys at the ready to offer their opinions that Bergdahl was a deserter, they must have known from someone this was about to happen, and their pathetic denials that they are not is a story unto itself. Not to mention soldiers attacking other soldiers for personal profit and gain is going to win them few friends in the public and fewer in the military.

The thing is, Bergdahl is an American soldier, the last in enemy captivity, at the end of a WAR. He is part of a prisoner swap with the enemy, a POW swap. Just ask Israel which routinely swaps dozens of prisoners for a single soldier. How outraged are the GOP with America's greatest ally?

It is Fox and the GOP versus the military and military codes and ethics, that is what this is boiling down to. And when the GOP votes against VA benefits increases this week (again), will America finally wake up to the evil they represent?

The GOP have followed Roger Ailes right off a propaganda cliff this time, because if there is one thing the American military does very well it is counter-propaganda.

Post posted thought:

Is it the same guys who scream that First Amendment rights include unlimited, un-disclosable cash to any and all unlimited candidates in a fair democratic election process the same guys screaming a soldier has no free speech rights at all in critiquing government war policy, even while speaking in private? Because that is one big hypocrisy booger right there.

The Commander In Chief made another tough call, (remember Bin Laden) and the praise he deserves

will destroy the Republican years long campaign of Obama is a weak President and the hateathon that keeps their brainwashed minions obedient, high on hate, junkies enslaved to outrage, will fade.

There is no measured debate or any debate with these extremists, nothing will satisfy them, all things Obama does are reacted to with justified measure of rage usually reserved for serial killers and pedophiles.

Any lie and deflection is fair game to protect the brainwashed from the truth. Hate is the grease that is the easiest balm to apply to turn every action into a reaction of pure frothing at the mouth hate.

All coming to a cable network near you because they love that kind of stuff to fill the endless panels and never ending airtime.


"Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl (who was captured when he was an E-3, and promoted twice while in captivity) has been released.

In just about every comment section of any article about the release you will find some right wing nuts calling him a "traitor", "deserter" and "collaborator". (most of those making these accusations have zero military experience of course)

I think the reasons for this are two fold: first that he was released under Obama's watch. That irked them to no end. second, he was released due to negotiations and not a massive deadly assault into another nation - like with bin Lauden.

These right wing nuts feel they have the Sgt. pegged as a "traitor" because the Taliban said he was helping them. That he is a "deserter" because the Tailban said he had walked away from his post…or gone out drinking…or left the FOB to use a makeshift latrine…or go AWOL for a few days. That he is a "collaborator" because he appeared in several (4) videos produced by the Taliban instead of fighting to the death or escaping.

It seems that the Taliban is a more reliable source of information about a US Soldier than the US Military which has stated:"The Taliban are known for lying and what they are claiming [is] not true" and "I'm glad to see he appears unharmed, but again, this is a Taliban propaganda video. They are exploiting the soldier in violation of international law.""

Edit: The Taliban are not AQ, you freaky morons, and lying about it because it makes your hate of the President more palatable to your freaking voter base, and so you can fundraiser on it get on the freaky cable TV news shows to screech said sad lies, makes you freaking traitors.
Is the problem the exchange rate, should it have been 3 for 1, 4 for 1?
