If there has ever been a slap in the face to our wonderful military personnel, it has been done by our radical, pacifist, activist, commander in chief, Mr. Obama.

To swap one of our soldiers, who (by his own platoon’s account), deserted his unit, for five hardened terrorists is just a totally travesty. And then the gall of Chuck Hagel, and Susan Rice to say the swap was carried out because of serious health issues that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was having. More lies from this administration. According to the Army hospital at Langstuhl, Germany, where Bergdahl was being examined, Bergdahl was in stabile condition and doing fine.

People, do you know what Article 85 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice states? I will quote it for all. “Any person found guilty of desertion or attempt to desert shall be punished in time of war by death or such other punishment as a court martial may direct.”

This swap puts all of our armed forces in much greater danger. Not a single person in Congress was aware of this swap. There should be a full investigation, and the people of this country should demand it.
