Why Bergdahl is Obama’s BFF

By Jim Berlin

Now that the Army has finally done what we knew they would — charged Bowe Bergdahl with deserting in Afghanistan and hooking up with the enemy — you might think that mess on President Obama’s face is rotten egg.

After all it was Barack who freed five of the most notorious Taliban leaders from Guantanamo – all killers of American boys and girls — to trade for Bergdahl. Five, when just one would likely have sufficed.

Not content with that, Barack grandly announced the swap in a Rose Garden ceremony with the deserter’s parents at his side. We were all moved by the sight of Bowe’s proud papa, a student of Islam who came equipped with his very own jihadist-looking beard. (Notably absent from the ceremony were any parents of the real soldiers killed while searching for Bergdahl.)

So why did our president pretend it wasn’t a traitor he was bringing home but some kind of soldier hero – a modern-day reincarnation of General George Patton?

People who want to give the president an out say the swap was simply a necessary subterfuge – a cover story for his vow to close that evil Guantanamo Bay. What better way to speed the process than by releasing the five baddest actors in the joint? No prisoners…no prison.

The stink in that story – besides being false – is everyone knew the five Taliban leaders would get back to their terrorist networks as soon as their one-year probation was up. And sure enough, U.S. intelligence says three of the five are already planning a return to the battlefield.

So, again, why would Obama celebrate the

release of five Taliban leaders with American blood on their hands…knowing they would add fresh American blood to those hands in the future? Five leaders exchanged – not for a General Patton – but for a two-bit deserter who joined forces with that very same enemy?

I’ll tell you why. When the swap took place in 2014, Obama spokesman Susan Rice – certainly with his approval – defended the trade by saying Bergdahl “served the United States with honor and distinction.”

There it is. To Obama, a man who turns his back on the U.S.A. and goes over to the enemy is an honorable man worthy of a Rose Garden ceremony. And men who war against America – and will war again in the future – cannot be allowed to rot behind bars at Guantanamo Bay. To the president’s twisted thinking, the trade was a win-win situation.

Only one of the two men at that Rose Garden ceremony wore a Muslim beard. The other still shaves every day, but when he leaves the White House in 2017, I’m betting he leaves the razor, too.

Harry Reid Loves Prisoner Swap
But First Family Still Fears Him

  By Jim Berlin

Barack Obama’s most ardent supporter on earth, Senate majority leader Harry Reid, today tearfully defended the president’s release of five dangerous jihadists from Guantanamo as an “heroic” action.

The Nevada senator’s emotional defense came as no surprise to Washington insiders. In 2008 Reid sought to legally adopt Mr. Obama, saying at the time, “I just want to be the daddy he never had.”

When Obama politely declined the adoption offer Reid countered by establishing a trust fund to finance the college educations of the president’s children.

“Now that we will accept,” Obama said. “But Creepy Uncle Harry, as the kids call him, still can’t come near us in the White House. The restraining order against him remains in effect.”

The “restraining order” refers to an embarrassing period in 2013 when Sen. Reid began loitering at night near the White House entrance to the Obamas’ private living quarters.

“I just wanted to get a glimpse of him,” Reid told Secret Service agents sent to investigate. “Maybe he’d see me and say something personal like, ‘Hi, Harry, how’s it going?’ I didn’t mean to scare the children.”

While the senator was clinically diagnosed in infancy as “non-human” (born with no trace of a personality), he becomes strangely emotional at any mention of President Obama. This has led to a game among the Washington press corps in which they unexpectedly shout “Barack” or “Obama” in Reid’s presence.

“It’s a gas,” one reporter laughed. “Harry’s thin little lips start to quiver, and suddenly he’s bawling like a big ol’ baby.

“It’s a sickness and we shouldn’t do it,” he continued, “but it’s the only evidence we have that the man’s not a robot.”
