Democrats - are you satisfied with the 5 released terrorists for the one POW?
32% of Democrats are satisfied. That's not many. Even they're disgusted?
Yes. I am a Democrat who disagrees with Obama's decision to make an unfair trade with the Taliban.
I haven't really heard anything about it except on FOX "BENGHAZI!" news. I can't trust one side of of the story. I have to YouTube it or something.
There is something really fishy about this. 5 for 1 makes no sense.
It's politics in play. Nothing more, nothing less.
Anything and everything to attack the president. We just got our last POW home from Afghanistan but let's focus on the five guys we released after holding them in Guantanamo Bay for years w/o a trial. Really it's a travesty, let's just impeach him.
You can filter polls according to political parties btw. So for example republicans won't see this question if not directed at them. :)
I didn't on purpose.
Ok thanks for letting me know I was just wondering :)
Who were they?
Right. Nobody knows. Nobody cares.
So who were they? And did you know before this news broke?
Your second question is irrelevant.
No, it's not. That's the problem. Out of sight and out of mind is how this has going on for so long, while those guys are still in Guantánamo, and while that guy who lingered with the Taliban for five years. Your apathy matters.
I am sure you have read Robert's twitter feed. This is an anti-American family.
We should not ever negotiate with terrorists.
Pol - father has removed some of his tweets but their are copies of them
You don't think a POW, an American soldier deserves to brought home at all costs?
He was an America hater. They could have negociated something else. I hope he is not hailed as an a hero because men died trying to find him
Political please share. You have different followers than I do.
An America hater? I have not heard that but I haven't followed the story closely.
Well when the family's goal is to release all the gitmo detainees.....
Tom - he had sent his family emails that he did not like this country or what it stood for and ashamed to be an American. Again men died trying to find this non hero.
Instead our commander in no back bone gives terrorists 5 of their own.
You know he mailed his uniforms home, abandoned his weapon and walked off his base, right? The only American the Taliban ever took prisoner in 13 years of war. He obviously defected.
They better not give him the medal of honor. He should be court marshaled .
I didn't know all this. FYI I did vote no.
Desertion in wartime is I believe the only charge remaining in the UCMJ for which you can be hung.
I sure hope there is more to this story, on the face of it I can't perceive anyone approve
If you tried to target the poll it didn't work. It's an interesting dilemma, I had thought about a similar question, I think it's relevant for all no matter the political affiliation.
I did not target but I am interested specifically in what they say. Often they don't respond at all. Did same with other poll.
I don't know what I think. If you say no, you say no to get a POW home. If you say yes, you're negotiating with terrorists and you expose us to future kidnappings because this one paid off.
I say no!
Tom, he was a deserter & six other soldiers died trying to find him when he went AWOL.
Someone on here said that last night ^^
