'Open Season' on Americans Now That Obama Negotiates with Terrorists
On May 31, a scandal-ridden Barack Obama announced the Taliban had released Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl after five years of captivity. His release follows negotiations in which the Obama administration agreed to trade five prisoners from Guantanamo Bay for Bergdahl.
Author Brad Thor tweeted a number of responses to this act of negotiating with terrorists, including his assessment that Americans are now vulnerable because terrorists see they can get what they want from the Obama administration.
Thor also noted that the negotiations somehow came at the same time that numerous scandals were pulling the administration down. He wrote:
Negotiating with terrorists is itself an act of weakness that sets a template of capitulation for the days, months, and years to come.
