Obama: “Absolutely no apologies” for swapping five Taliban leaders for Bergdahl

posted at 12:01 pm on June 5, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

First off, take a listen to the question that prompted this answer. It’s a marvel of incoherence, leaping not just from Barack Obama to David Cameron but from the Bowe Bergdahl swap all the way through to Qatar’s hosting of the World Cup next decade. Diagramming that question might need a wall-sized Venn diagram.

Nonetheless, Obama responded on the swap that he had “absolutely no apologies” to make over the swap:

President Obama said Thursday he would make “absolutely no apologies” for ordering the controversial prisoner swap to rescue Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the last American prisoner of war in Afghanistan.

Obama said he was never surprised by “controversies that are whipped up in Washington,” but deflected criticism from members of Congress and the military over the trade of five Guantanamo prisoners for Bergdahl, who has been accused of abandoning his post in Afghanistan before his capture.

“I make absolutely no apologies for making sure we get back a young man to his parents,” Obama said at a joint press conference with in Brussels with British Prime Minister David Cameron.

None? None at all for, say, using the Bergdahls for the big announcement before even bothering to notify the relevant members of Congress, like the chairs and ranking members of the intelligence committees? Apparently not, because Obama says he needed to “humanize” the swap:

The president also defended the decision to appear alongside Bergdahl’s parents during an announcement of the deal on Saturday. Some have argued that decision elevated the soldier’s profiles and invited the tougher examination of his conduct on the battlefield.

But Obama said he felt it was important to humanize the decision, and said he wrote “too many letters” to parents whose children don’t return from war.

“I think it was important to understand this is not some abstraction, not some political football,” Obama said.

Clearly that turned out to be an utter failure, as well as a total contradiction in terms. He didn’t want to turn the swap into a political football, but then brought the Bergdahls into the Rose Garden for public-relations purposes. Huh?  Obama had weeks to notify Congressional leadership of the pending swap and didn’t because either (a) Bergdahl was too ill to wait, and/or (b) it went too fast to make the calls — but they just so happened to know that the Bergdahls were in DC and where to find them. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Chuck Lane notices something else about Obama’s argument from the transcript:

He’s Bob Bergdahl’s “child,” but not a child on his own. We don’t have “child” soldiers in the US Army, nor in any of the service branches. Bergdahl fils was and is a young man, responsible for his own actions.

Speaking of total failure — if Obama hoped to accelerate the closing of Gitmo with this trade, it’s about to backfire in a very big way. Members of Congress of both parties are so angry over his violation of the law that they’re going to make it harder to do more transfers of those left at the detention facility:

President Barack Obama’s goal of closing the Guantanamo Bay prison is facing re-energized opposition from Republicans and increased questioning from fellow Democrats amid widespread anger in Congress over the swap of five Taliban detainees for the last American prisoner of war in Afghanistan.

Obama appeared to advance his effort last month when a Senate panel approved greater authority for him to transfer suspected terrorists to the United States, on condition he presented a plan to close Guantanamo and Congress approved it.

But the deal that freed Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl after five years of captivity has driven a new wedge between the president and lawmakers of both parties who accuse the Obama administration of breaking the law. …

Members of Congress say the prisoner trade almost surely will end with the Taliban commanders returning to the battlefield. Lawmakers also say Obama ignored the law and his administration’s own pledge to provide Congress with notification at least 30 days in advance. The White House insists it acted lawfully.

The disagreement is prompting some lawmakers to try to tighten rules on transferring prisoners from Guantanamo.

Obama expected euphoria over the release of five dangerous Taliban figures when packaged with the return of one soldier who was captured after going AWOL. He also apparently expected Congress to do nothing while he high-handed them over a swap that had almost unanimous bipartisan opposition in both the House and the Senate, when considered with even tougher restrictions than the five Talibani have now in Qatar. That’s about the level of competence we have seen from this White House all along, and incompetence has dangerous consequences at this level. Apologies for it do little to mitigate them, but a few might at least signal that this administration might learn from some of its errors and arrogant overreach.

My prediction is that we are a day or two out from a royal temper tantrum.

He declared what he did on Saturday in the Rose Garden with Tali-Bob. That was supposed to bring about universal euphoria that Tali-Bowe had been freed. So much so that the details were inconsequential.

That didn’t work.

He defended his actions to Congress Monday by claiming it was an oversight that they were not notified ahead of time even as they managed to find time to get Tali-Bob to the White House on Saturday. Administration officials yesterday explained to the Senate why they were left out of the loop.

That didn’t work.

Today we have administration officials smearing everybody who worked with Tali-Bowe as liars. And, of course, the rat-eared wonder has now declared that this matter is “settled.”

This isn’t going to work either.

At some point soon, Obama will get angry that people are still asking him about freeing those terrorists for a filthy deserter. And he’ll stomp his feet and declare this was the right thing to do. Which, of course, translates to HOW DARE YOU QUESTION ME!

Obama spiked the football, and it bounced up into his nose.

With the Taliban 5 loose in Qatar, we should boycott the World Cup, otherwise our soccer team will get kidnapped to trade for 60 Taliban guys in Gitmo.

Obama says he needed to “humanizePoliticize” the swap

FIFY

The reason why Jugears didn’t include congress is because it is all about him. HE got our men out of Afghanistan. HE is closing GITMO. HE is combating climate change and saving lives through the EPA. HE is saving children from fun violence. HE ordered UBL killed. HE ordered the release of the five from GITMO to trade for the deserter. HE is fixing immigration by allowing illegals to stay in the US…and the newly arriving from Central America.

It is all about what HE has done, not what he got done. Which isn’t much.

Patriot Vet on June 5, 2014 at 12:50 PM

Close, but you just missed the point.

The reason Obama doesn’t include Congress on this or anything else he thinks he can get away with is he doesn’t want to give them the chance to TELL HIM NO.

Just hear on FBN about 1/2 hr ago that the administration is NOW saying that they reason they didn’t/couldn’t notify congress was that the Taliban claimed they would kill Bergdahl if news of the swap leaked out before it took place.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Inside the White House’s decision to free Bergdahl

While Vice President Joe Biden was neutral on the prisoner swap, Obama and two top White House advisers, then-national security adviser Thomas Donilon and his deputy Denis McDonough, were all in favor, one official said. Donilon resigned a year ago, but McDonough went on to become Obama’s chief of staff.

I’m thinking “neutral” as in “out of the loop”. That or he’s lying.

GUTSY CALL!!! Mk 2, Mod99.

BigWyo on June 5, 2014 at 12:35 PM

Sure was! I just read this on Politico…..

President Barack Obama made a “very gutsy call” to send some un-armed guys into Pakistan to pick up that deserter douche , former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said in an interview broadcast Sunday.
“I gave deep-tissue massages to a lot of these guys. And this is one of the most courageous calls – decisions — that I think I’ve ever seen a president make,” Gates lied to CBS in a wide-ranging interview aired on “60 Minutes.”
Gates, a veteran government official and enthusiastic nudist who also once served as CIA director, said he was very concerned about the quality of the President’s intelligence.
“My worry was the level of uncertainty about whether Bergdahl was even in the compound. … There wasn’t any direct evidence that he was there, although there was quite an odor of flop-sweat, with undertones of chickenshit. It was all circumstantial, wait, I mean circumcisional… But it was the best — information that we had — since probably 2010, when we read the letter he left stating he was breaking up with the US” he said.

No apologies for releasing the ‘worst-of-the-worst’, 5 Taliban Leaders responsible for the near genocide of an Afghanistan tribe, who are personally responsible for slitting the throats of Afghan men/boys in front of their wives/mothers/daughters, who are 5 of the ‘Most Wanted’ by the U.N. for WAR CRIMES.

Somebody IMPEACH this $0B already for violations of both Constitution and Law and for TREASON – admittedly releasing enemy combatants while knowing they would return to the battle field where they will be responsible for MORE AMERICAN DEATHS!
