Some have accused Obama of responding to the crisis in Iraq with empty words, followed by parties and golfing in Palm Beach and claiming that the Republicans are causing Global Warming at UC-Irvine.
But it’s not true that Obama has remained uninvolved in foreign policy during this crisis. He has followed his tried and tested policy of meeting terrorism with appeasement.
The Taliban and Al Qaeda have tried and tested the policy and they recommend it to 4 out of 5 infidel states in the Dar al-Harb.
Barack Obama, in a letter to Congress released on Thursday, informed U.S. lawmakers that about 38 non-Afghan prisoners remained at the Parwan detention center outside of Kabul, down from around 50 a few months ago.
A U.S. defense official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that a Frenchman, a Kuwaiti and 10 Pakistani prisoners were sent back to their respective home countries at the end of May.
The remaining detainees include Yemeni, Tunisian and more Pakistani nationals, and a Russian who the United States is also considering trying in a military or civilian court.
As expected the Bergdahl deal was a precedent for freeing more Jihadists. The timing is terrible, from an American perspective, but the timing couldn’t be better if you were an Islamic Jihadist or one of their liberal anti-war allies.
