First of , to the soldiers and their families who lost a loved one in the search for this "POW", I extend my deepest condolences for your loss and I feel even worse that this "president" has now brought this "POW" back into the lime light for these families to relive the horror that was felt when these soldiers were lost. I and many others pray for your family and also for the safe return of all of those who serve our country honorably overseas.
To make things even worse and more confusing, I find it very coincidental that this whole story breaks lose after a huge VA scandal (one of the many of this so-called administration), escalated conflict in the Ukraine, the continued Chinese effort to strengthen their military and a Chinese alliance hidden in plain sight with the one force that is more deadly and poisonous than any terrorist organization, Russia.
I have never seen Administration emphasis or media headlines dramatically change course so much in the past year, give or take a couple months, than in any year of the Bush or even Clinton Administration. Why is it that we hear about a new Communist regime rising in Russia trying to disrupt the Ukraine's effort to join the EU with their defiant and extremely deceitful dictator, I mean President Putin to an aircraft that was suddenly "lost" in Malaysia, an uprising in Thailand, a Twitter feed in regards to kidnappings in Nigeria and Now this.
I must say Mr. "President" that you and your cronies did not think this one through, you have been careful and manipulative enough up until now to keep media opinion in your favor, but on this one you have failed miserably at deceiving the American Public. Like they say, no one is perfect, humans are fallible and this would include you Mr. "President". Whatever angle your were going with here clearly went wrong, you now have liberal newspapers slamming your decision and now public opinion has really turned against you.
Why now would this circus administration do this, never mind the REAL threat of communism (who would back anyone, to include any Terrorist group, that opposes freedom and democracy) spreading in Asia and reaching its tentacles to Europe that might just have the capability of igniting a world war! Not to mention the fact that thousands of American lives have been lost in the Middle East, the continued descent in the value of the American dollar and the many American jobs have been lost and their healthcare system severely damaged in our own country on Mr. Obama's watch. Now to make things more difficult you hand over 5 more dangerous enemies that could help make this situation even better for our enemies.
I say this to anyone who loves America, keep informed on world issues that are relevant to the safety of our military, to democracy, and finally ourselves. This cancer in Washington must be peacefully removed by a strong American opposition voice to prevent the complete destruction of the American way of life.
Lastly keep the faith in our country and may God help us all in keeping the sanctity and security of our nation.
