The United States Doesn’t Negotiate With Terrorists

No wait, yes we do!

(reposted from Random Acts of Patriotism/asm826)

All in All

…it’s just another brick in the wall.

If it was my son, I would be willing to give up every swinging dick in Guantanamo to get him back. I get that part. But it’s not. And now the enemy knows what we will pay for a live American soldier. We will pay five for one. And we will negotiate.

1. Mohammad Fazl

One of the first detainees captured in Afghanistan to be transferred to Guantanamo — in January 2002 — Fazl is the Taliban’s former deputy minister of defense. He was one of the Taliban’s founding members, rising through the ranks to become Taliban Chief of Army Staff when it ruled Afghanistan. Human Rights Watch accuses Fazl of presiding over the mass killings of Afghanistan’s Shi’ite Muslims in 2000 and 2001.

2. Mohammad Nabi

The former chief of Taliban security in Qalat, the capital of Afghanistan’s southern Zabul Province.

3. Abdul Haq Wasiq

Also accused by Human Rights Watch of mass killings and torture during the Taliban’s time in power, the Taliban’s former deputy minister of intelligence is considered to have been at one time one of Mullah Omar’s closest confidants.

4. Mullah Norullah Nori

Nori was the senior Taliban commander in the strategic northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif. He is considered to be one of the most high-ranking Taliban officials ever to be held in Guantanamo. He is also accused of being involved in the massacre of thousands Shi’ite Muslims in 2000 and 2001.

5. Khairullah Khairkhwa

The former Taliban governor of Heart Province, which borders Iran, Khairkhwa has also served as a military commander and a minister of the interior.

I get that part, too.  (About willingness to give up those in Git’mo)   I grieve for every soldier, sailor, Marine and others who gave all in service to this Nation.  And those horribly wounded or held as prisoners-of-war.  It must be horrible for them and their loved ones.

But every one who signs on for this kind of service understands the risks.

ASM826 is correct – do we want to change U.S. Policy and show weakness when the enemy only understands strength?

And since this story broke, it’s come out that Bergdahl’s father is a Muslim, AND, Bergdahl himself may have given aid and comfort to the Taliban, not been a prisoner!  And there is evidence he renounced his U.S. Citizenship and walked away from his unit!

How many men died and were wounded trying to ‘save’ him?  If the above allegations are indeed true, he should be placed in Fort Leavenworth and shot.

  1. Don’t know if the guys that died searching were really trying to “save” him.
    You want to recover a deserter…even if it’s just to shoot or hang him.
    Giving up the equivalent of the Taliban Joint Chiefs of Staff for this dweeb is suspect to say the least.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
