The news has recently broke that our last service person held captive in Afghanistan has since been released back to the United States. What isn’t being reported on is the price we paid to bring that soldier back home. I more than anyone understand the significance of bringing home our service men and women from war, but the question remains at what cost. To bring home our solder, our president released five, count’em, FIVE terrorists from our military installation in Guantanamo Bay. It has been reported that these terrorists will be released to the authorities in Qatar, but from there who knows where exactly they will end up.
“@ABalkhi I am still working to free Guantanamo prisoners. God will repay for the death of every Afghan child, ameen!”
This tweet has since been deleted. But the question still remains. What exactly was behind the release of our prisoner and the subsequent release of the five terrorists back into the hands of the Muslim bortherhood.
Another question that must be addressed is why are we putting so much effort into getting this one particular prisoner back when we also have a marine, Andrew Tahmooressi, trapped in a Mexican maximum security prison for more than 60 days.
We currently have a president and an administration who is more concerned about political gain and political capital than the true security and safety of our service men and women at home and abroad. The only time this president acts is when he can in some way, shape, or form benefit directly from the situation.
