Who cares if American lives are now more in danger thanks to an illegal prisoner swap? The White House doesn’t give a shit.
Why Bergdahl was captured in the first place remained a mystery by the time high-level US government talks began in 2012 regarding a trade for his release.
“Frankly, we don’t give a s–t why he left,” one White House official said at the time. “He’s an American soldier. We want to bring him home.”
There was fierce debate over exchanging him for the five Taliban combatants. Sen. John McCain, himself a former POW, once described the five as “the five biggest murderers in world history,” according to Rolling Stone.
The White House also doesn’t give a shit who cares. Just imagine what they might give up to free Andrew Tahmoressei from his Mexican captivity:
Maybe if Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi becomes a traitor and his parents become islamic sympathizers Obama will get him released as well… #FAIL
