VIDEO Bombshell: First words of Bergdahl’s father at White House were Arabic

Clare Lopez is a former CIA operations officer, a strategic policy and intelligence expert with a focus on Middle East, national defense, WMD, and counterterrorism issues, and a friend of mine.

She emailed me this morning a very poignant analysis that only someone knowing language and Islam could ascertain. She wrote:

“What none of these media is reporting is that the father’s (SGT Bowe Bergdahl’s father Bob) first words at the WH were in Arabic – those words were “bism allah alrahman alraheem” – which means “in the name of Allah the most gracious and most merciful” – these are the opening words of every chapter of the Qur’an except one (the chapter of the sword – the 9th) – by uttering these words on the grounds of the WH, Bergdahl (the father) sanctified the WH and claimed it for Islam. There is no question but POTUS knows this.”

Folks, there is a lot to this whole episode — like Benghazi — that we may never know. And this is not conspiracy theory, it is truth based upon Arabic and Islamic dogma and tradition.

And here’s the video if you have any questions.

      • Do we know why our troops are returning home & are like ticking time bombs. Why some have murdered their own families and then themselves? I know why & how we can help them. Muslims believe like we use to believe. In the power of the spoken word that proceeds from your mouths. In fact all your Positive Motivational Speakers also know. But we somewhere along the lines forgot about it. We don’t understand the spiritual realm. Yet Phil Robertson said it when interviewed by Sean Hannity. We are in a Spiritual Warfare. We wrestle not with flesh and blood! But powers, principalities & wickedness in High places! When the prayers of the Muslims went forth all around our troops 3 times a day. The Emon were cursing the very troops risking their life’s to protect them. Why? Because Islam is woven into the very fabric of their culture and they see the West as threat to not only their way of life but also to their Belief system. Think about it? We always blame the other to keep separation of Church & State! Islamic Laws are a part of Government. We need to have prayer teams seasoned in Spiritual Warfare & pray the curses be broken & sent back to those who cursed them with Blessings of Love & Peace Upon those who cursed us! Anoint each of our troops heads with oil, olive oil and by his Holy Name Yeshua HaMoschiach be broken restore their peace & hearts of love Amein!

        We should understand that we are WAY PAST “Muslim sympathizer” and CERTAINLY PAST mere coincidences.
        Saddam Barack Hussein Osama Obama is a Muslim.

      • LibTroll says what? You read all that information I provided (extremely fast i might add) and that’s your retort huh? Impressive! But as all libs do, you keep going down the page, and asking for “evidence.” Lol.

    • Not just a deserter, but a Muslim deserter. Have you not figured by now that our POTUS is a Muslim himself and has aligned himself with Muslim countries?

      • You realize that having a middle name like Hussein doesn’t determine which religion you have? If you’re going to say outlandish claims like ‘Obama is a Muslim’ you have to have incredible proof. Next you’ll say that Jesus was the Son of God and the only proof you need for that is the Bible. And I’ll say, yeah, I knew you were crazy.

      • Basing your assumption on just that? So you are assuming. I don’t drink Koolaid, but clearly you’re the one addicted to it, fatty.

      • Typical liberal response. When you can’t defend your position to resort to base name calling. About what I expected. Thanks for confirming my expectations.

      • Oh noes, like I was actually going to convince an idiot on the the Allen B West website, one of the stupidest politicians I’ve ever heard. In a fact-free world, I’m sure you’re right.

      • Is that what you came on the website for, to belittle and run people down? I have a feeling you get pleasure from that, and it’s the only pleasure you do get out of life.

      • Oh and the fact he just released four of some of the most dangerous members of the Taliban in exchange for a soldier, who’s family happens to be Muslim, speak volumes. But denial is not just a river in Egypt, is it?

      • SEMPER FI MARINE! I’m sure my Marine Gunny Sgt Step Dad is rolling in his grave! Sad we trade top enemy combatants for a Muslim traitor! What most don’t realize is because Bergdahl committed this treasonous crime during wartime! He can & should be put to death by firing squad!

      • A liberal not judging someone? LOL, nice one, Dingle-Barry, keep clinging to Barry’s butt-lips.

      • Oh, I’m judging you because you’re retarded and not by birth, you literally decided it would be better to be retarded than knowledgeable. But I don’t judge you for being gay, you can’t control that.

      • The word is credible, not “incredible.” And you’re wrong about your Christian theology as well. But happy, no doubt, in your ignorance.

      • You are aware that Obama’s father was a Muslim and that Islam teaches his children would have been Muslim at birth, yes? Or do you have a copy of a baptismal certificate to the Christian faith Obama now claims?

      • Yes, just like the Christian Bible says that anyone with a Jewish mother was Jewish..Wait a minute..wasn’t Mary Jewish?

      • Certainly hope so. There weren’t any Christians before she did her thing. Weren’t any Muslims, either.

      • You do realize that people are pretty bad at following the religions to a t, and that they usually don’t matter. Kind of like how saying you believe Jesus is real, but that won’t save you when you die.

      • You need to stop getting your news from SNL and Comedy Central. Your knowledge comes with a huge deficit and ignorance is bliss for you libtards.

      • Should I get it from O’Reilly? Maybe blast some Nugent or Beck while I snort meth and jerk off to gay porn while going to anti-gay marriage rallies?

      • Yes & what we need to do is get his real Birth certificate and that will undo all he’s done. All laws he signed would all be null & void. Heck a Kenyan Newspaper bragged about the fact one of their native son’s was being elected to US Senate!

      • Yeshua HaMoschiach is the Son of G-D BTW I don’t have to prove it. He already is by what he said would be the signs of his return! Their called Blood Moons not just any Blood Moons! The Tetrid Blood Moons that just so happens to fall on Pesach & Sukkot! This Year & Next year. That’s not a coincidence!

      • Tell you what. Go and read the exhaustive background information at these sites, and then please come back and tell us how Obama is not a Muslim. Oh, and be sure to reply to this as quickly as possible, so we can all see you took absolutely no time to read any of it.

        Saddam Barack Hussein Osama Obama is a Muslim.

      • How do you know that Barak Obama is a Muslim? Please provide your irrefutable evidence leading to the conclusion that the President of the United States is a Muslim. Have *you* ever seen him attend worship services in a mosque? Has he told *you* directly that he is a Muslim? Do *you* have any authenticated photographs or recordings that indicate such? What are *your* sources? What are *their* sources? I suspect that your “evidence” is based completely upon punditry and hearsay, not established fact.

        If you are basing your assertions on his name, you should know that so called “religious” names may have their roots in religious traditions, but over time become cultural and regional regardless of the prevailing religious beliefs.

      • If you bothered to look at the “legal disclaimer” (included below) you would have seen that the person or persons who posted that YouTube video aren’t even *implying* that the president is a Muslim. They are simply putting forth disjointed, cherry picked sound bites of out of context video clips, knowing that uninformed viewers will *assume* that they are providing “hard proof” to support that ridiculous claim.

        In fact, without context these are simply statements containing words like Muslim and Islam. The fact that the president refers to topics that are relative to current events does not make him a Muslim either. To infer that it does implies extreme gullibility and susceptibility to sleight of hand and flim-flam.

        “Legal Disclaimer: The writers, producer, editors, and publishers of this video are not stating, claiming, or implying that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim, or that Obama himself claimed or admitted to being a Muslim. Rather the writers, producers, editors, and publishers of this video are only examining the evidence surrounding the rumor that Barack Hussein Obama might be a secret Muslim.”

      • Right so you’re still denying he’s a Muslim, even though he just released four of some of the most dangerous Taliban members in exchange for a deserter whose family is Muslim? Enjoy the Koolaid, drown in it.

      • Obama is not Muslim. The Bergdahls are not Muslim. The Taliban members who were released were considered four of the most dangerous 12 years ago – that assessment has likely been revised – something you and I wouldn’t be privy to. Oh, and by the way, there were 5 prisoners, not four.

        I’d love to sample the Koolaid, but you seem to have drunk it all.

      • Right, I can see I’m dealing with a delusional person. You just hang on to those delusions, right up to the point your exalted leader puts you in a FEMA camp after he declares martial law. You do know that denial is not just a river in Egypt, right?

    • A muslim deserter, dude. That makes him a hero in Obama’s eyes.

      I think it is safe to say that McCarthy was right about the US being infiltrated with Soviet spies like we see on the show The Americans. They are in our best universities and K-12. They devote their lives to training children to believe in the goodness of a strong centralized government that is run by only the smartest people.

      That is why almost all of our films, record labels, and news outlets are filled to the brim with Marxists.

      • Sad but true. And a almost no-one under 50 has a clue who Trotsky was, what his connections were with European international socialist and the pre WWII soon to be national socialist, and most importantly what legacy he left in Mexico. All Americans should be required to read the socialist / communist manifestos to know their enemy.

      • Randall you sir are truly informed. Reason why Obama has visited Mexico is to first get paid his portion for allowing the flow of drugs into the USA & to make sure his Southern Army is getting the weapons they need. If I told you how I found out. You wouldn’t believe me. Every bit of my Military training got me home and saved me.

    • Does that REALLY surprise you considering every action of this wh terrorist screaming that his main agenda is to destroy the Judeo- Christian foundation this country was birthed on???

  1. Are there any official reports indicating he was a deserter? I don’t believe something just because I read it on the internet.

    • It’s not just internet rumor, these claims are based on first hand accounts from the soldiers he was with when he deserted.

      • But they’ve been forced to sign nondisclosure orders so the people who KNOW will be afraid to tell the truth.

    • If you remember back when he first went missing there was much made of his statements and strange behavior leading up to his disappearance. His last known contact was with an Afghan boy who he asked “Which way to the Taliban”.Those who served with him back this up and decry the fact that they lost a lot of good men looking for him.

    • He is a deserter he left is post and went looking for the terrorists he should be in lockup and courtmarsheld

    • It makes little difference if he deserted or not. To exchange 5 terrorist for his return is unlawful in all ways…This action will only put more ;of our military in harms way!

    • There are two one that he was in the latrine going to the bathroom and got nabbed, the second was he walked off. You will not get anything official yet …

      • Please let me know how it’s possible for the Taliban to kidnap a soldier form an on-base head.

    • I don’t think they are insinuating he was a deserter. Why would the Taliban not kill him like every other US soldier? Why would they believe he would be valuable when we have a long held “No Negotiating with Terrorists”policy? Why wouldn’t they have kept Chris Stevens the Abassador instead of killing him? Does your middle American dad speak arabic and worship Allah? Does his son join the special forces to “help” the Afghan people? Not the #1 reason for joining these days. So many other questions I have. Was anybody else SHOCKED at the amout of support this family got? The dad mentioned he had a (gov issued) personal secretary, a physcotherapist since day one and they had regular briefings. Meanwhile the mom of one of they guys killed in Benghazi hasn’t heard from a soul. No therapist, No info. No explaination. Unless you count Hillary when they brought home the caskets telling the families “We re going to get the guys who made the video”

    • Yes there are they are being hidden. Maybe you should go to Mr. West’s facebook page and read the post from someone who was there. But then you might have to agree that oblama is a traitor and should be held accountable.

    • Why would he mail all his personal possessions home a week before he disappeared? Why would he ask villagers where he could find the Taliban?

  2. we are at war from the inside out. Obama is a Muslim terrorist. He traded 4 of his brothers for one in return. All done for the greater good of the brotherhood. We are at war and don’t even know it. I’ve known it for 2 years now and people always looked at me as I was a freak.. Well who is the freak now??!? wake up people!!!!

    • Terry not to mention the 4 Americans who died in Benghazi because Obama had a black op going on to transfer the Libya missing weapons to the Al Qaeda Rebels fighting against Assad ‘ s Military. Now we are going to give them monies to be equipped trained to use our weapons that most definitely gives them more that they will have to use against US!

  3. Meanwhile the CIA, FBI, Senate and the Congress sit idled while this Muslim in the White House breaks every law on the books and makes a mockery of the Constitution.

  4. When I heard what he was saying, I thought maybe my hearing was fuzzy. I thought to myself, did he just say something in a different language?

    Guess who is the next request be freed? Omar Abdel-Rahman.

  5. He, the father, can claim whatever he wants to claim. It doesn’t mean he has a right to claim it or that he’s going to get it. By what authority does he claim it?

    It’s ours. We’re keeping it and our Constitution too. They can have Obama back anytime they want him.

  6. Sure does make ya want to know where those 400 Shoulder Fired Surface to Air Missiles that obama gave Al Qaeda are…, doesn’t it??

  7. And let’s not forget that he’s not JUST a deserter… he’s no had years of training with a radical Islamic criminal syndicate, which is presently at war with the United States.

    What are the odds that he’s got some marching orders to follow through on when he gets back?

  8. Lmao, this is genuinely hilarious. People are upset about this? Even if Obama is a Muslim (he isn’t), why does that possibly matter? Disagree with his politics but his religious affiliation is irrelevant at best. Xenophobia run rampant.

    • Because he surrendered five targets people DIED to capture, in order to get back scumbag who we should hang for desertion in the face of the enemy.

      • Well yes and no. He ‘did it’ because he’s a Marxist and a Muslim. Not that there’s much of a distinction, but one CAN be a Marxist and not be a Muslim… this one is just both.

      • Obama did it Josh Boeke because he ( Obama ) is sympathetic to those who wish America and Americans harm…

      • Josh is not going to understand. Everyone of us could spend the rest of the day, bringing to life all the things that Obama has done. It’s like beating your head on a brick wall…..

      • NO, he did it because he feels WE should bow down to Islamist terrorists. And he broke the law by not giving Congress a heads up 30 notice required by (as you liberals like to quote so much) THE LAW OF THE LAND! How much longer do we have to deal with folks here in AMERICA like yourself who thinks this man is NOT out to destroy AMERICA. And lets not forget this deserter and his father. I guarantee you, something is going to happen here as you don’t spend 4 years with terrorists to not come back to the states with marching orders to destroy or blow up something here. I dang sure hope I am wrong but my gut tells me I am not!

      • Josh Boeke is a demwit libtard (most likely from Chicago ) who believes every word that comes out of Odumbo’s lying ass mouth. He wakes up every morning so submersed in the red Kool-aid that everything including his hair and teeth are permanently stained Red!! How do you Josh
        . know that he isn’t Muslim??? That’s the question! !

      • He has Muslim ties and sympathies, but that is not the point. It is his actions. What amazes me is that he continues to get away with breaking the law.

      • Not sure what Kool Aid has to do with anything. I’ll happily criticize Obama for any number of things but using his supposed religious affiliations to label him a terrorist is asinine.

      • Note how reasonable that sounds? Right up until you figure out that he needs to separate the actions of the Muslim, from the Muslim religion, which promotes those actions… and that the US is presently at war, with the religion.

        It’s called Deceit… which is FRAUDULENTLY advanced as a means to influence the Ignorant.

    • Xenophobia is not about religion, you moron, it’s about people who look different or come from different backgrounds. Islam isn’t a race; it’s a misogynistic lifestyle that allows men to act like barbarians instead of mature adults.

      • Calling me a moron without even looking up the definition of the word. Shame on you and the 26 people who upvoted your comment.

        “an unreasonable fear or hatred of foreigners or strangers or of that which is foreign or strange.”

        You fear Islam because it’s foreign and strange to you, you see only the worst of it in the news and media. I am not a Muslim, though I know plenty of good people who are. This quite literally fits the textbook definition of the word.

      • Note the qualifier: “Unreasonable”. It is reasonable to expect the same behavior from those who have CONSISTENTLY EXHIBITED THAT BEHAVIOR… In that rests the REASON that your statement is MORONIC… thus such provides a sound foundation, in the judgment that you are a MORON!

        (See how that works?)

      • It’s so crazy to me how much you guys criticize liberals as elitists and yet you treat anyone who disagrees with you like they’re the dumbest person on Earth. How can you not see the blatant hypocrisy in that? Treating all Muslims like they’re terrorists is so far beyond unreasonable that your inability to see it makes me think you’re either trolling me or willfully trying not to. Political discourse is a cesspool in this country and you embody the reason why.

      • Elitists? Liberals?

        Left-think is an advocacy of Foreign Ideas that are HOSTILE to American Principle. Liberals, are Leftists… they’re cirticized because their IDEAS are a threat to freedom. Freedom is the key to human happiness, success, prosperity… Standing against freedom is evil. Liberals are criticized because they’re foolish and as such prone to advocacies which can only promote evil, thus can only result in chaos, calamity and catastrophe.

      • Says the guy apologizing for the most racist, xenophobic and unreasonably hateful ideology on the face of the planet. In case you haven’t noticed Islamd is the most rigidly uniform belief system out there and is strictly enforced by Sharia code. 14 centuries of honor killings, taxing of infidels, taking of slaves, forced conversions, bombings, beheadings for apostasy etc. Yeah, my fear of Islam is totally unreasonable.

      • When did I apologize for anyone? So because other people are xenophobic you should be too? You only see the most extreme in everything, that’s the problem with this entire website community. Nothing is as simple as you want it to be.

      • “When did I apologize for anyone?So because other people are xenophobic you should be too?”

        Scroll up, it’s when you called us xenophobic for wanting to defend Western civilization from xenophbic 7th century barbarians.

        “You only see the most extreme in everything, that’s the problem with this entire website community.”

        Kind of like when you earlier equated all Christians to the Spanish Inquisition without any historical context. Speaking of historical context, I gave it to you when I expressed my distaste for Islam with historical examples.

        “Nothing is as simple as you want it to be.”

        Well, you’re schtick is. And Islams intentions are pretty simple to understand too.

      • “Scroll up, it’s when you called us xenophobic for wanting to defend Western civilization from xenophbic 7th century barbarians.”

        Precisely, you can’t quote me on it cause it never happened. I said this article was xenophobic for suggesting a guy speaking in Arabic somehow means Obama is claiming the WH for Islam – which is absurd. Didn’t defend Islam at all.

        “Kind of like when you earlier equated all Christians to the Spanish Inquisition without any historical context.”

        Literally did nothing close to that, in fact the exact opposite. Used The Inquisition as an example of an extreme sect of Christianity NOT representing all Christians. The fact that you misunderstood my point SO completely makes me question everything else you’ve said to this point. Also never once tried to argue against your “historic examples” – they are simply irrelevant to the point I was making.

        “Well, you’re schtick is. And Islams intentions are pretty simple to understand too.”

        The fact you think “Islams intentions are simple” as if the religion has a will of its own, just perfectly illustrates my point.

      • “Precisely, you can’t quote me on it cause it never happened. I said this article was xenophobic for suggesting a guy speaking in Arabic somehow means Obama is claiming the WH for Islam – which is absurd. Didn’t defend Islam at all.”

        Tell me then, why did he feel the need to make a political statement by speaking his opening remarks in Arabic, then call us Xenophobes for pointing that out. And why do you feel the need to clearly defend his choice of making a political statement, by speaking in Arabic, by attacking one religion(Christianity) and defend anotehr(Islam), because that’s what you are doing. The whole tenor of your argument is basically saying that one is just as bad as another. Then you attack me for bringing up historical evidence proving they are not – and then you admit that you aren’t really interested in knowing what you talking about. You need two shovels one for each hand. I mean most leftists are a study in cognitive dissonance, but your are exceptional my friend.

        “Literally did nothing close to that, in fact the exact opposite. Used The Inquisition as an example of an extreme sect of Christianity NOT representing all Christians.”

        You said:

        “You’re castigating an entire religion for its most extreme elements, God forbid someone do that to Christians (The Inquisition comes to mind).”

        Someone like you? See people like you do that all the time., and that’s what you implied here. That’s why you mentioned it, to use as some sort of equivallancy bludgeon

        I also know you said this:

        “So disagree with his politics then. I wouldn’t attack a Christian on the basis of their faith, though I may disagree with the political stance that originates from it.'”

        So, why the Christian perspective, and not and Islamic one? Because Islam is a purely political movement disguised as a religion. And yes, you would attack them. You have done it here on this thread.

        “Also never once tried to argue against your “historic examples” – they are simply irrelevant to the point I was making.”

        Oh my examples are irrelevant, how do you know that when you stated yourself that you couldn’t be bothered with understanding the history of Islam? You didn’t try to argue against them because you are willingly ignorant of them. How would my arguments be irrelevant if you have no historical context to compare them to?

        ‘..”Well, you’re schtick is. And Islams intentions are pretty simple to understand too.”
        The fact you think “Islams intentions are simple” as if the religion has a will of its own, just perfectly illustrates my point.’

        How did you eve make that logical leap. And you illustrate mine when again you stated that you are intentionally ignorant of Islam. I never implied it had a will of it’s own. I said it’s followers strictly adhere to a set of doctrines at odds with Western Civilization, either willingly, or by force. The purpose of Islam is simple, subjugation or submission – which is what Islam means – or death. Do you want some more historical examples, since you can’t be bothered to look them up, you little bomb thrower.

      • “Tell me then, why did he feel the need to make a political statement by speaking his opening remarks in Arabic, then call us Xenophobes for pointing that out. And why do you feel the need to clearly defend his choice of making a political statement, by speaking in Arabic, by attacking one religion(Christianity) and defend anotehr(Islam), because that’s what you are doing.

You need two shovels one for each hand. I mean most leftists are a study in cognitive dissonance, but your are exceptional my friend.”

        This is becoming tedious, but here goes. I couldn’t care less about why he chose to make his opening remarks in Arabic, that has absolutely nothing to do with anything. You make an art form of twisting words to fit an argument you conjure out of thin air (though not very effectively). I said it was xenophobic to extrapolate from his comments that he was a) “claiming the WH for Islam” whatever that means, and b) that Obama being present somehow means he endorses his comments. Now you’re bringing “tenor” into it because you can’t pin down anything I actually said to fit your agenda. I don’t know how many times I can say that one being better or worse than the other is SO COMPLETELY beyond the point I’m making that it has no bearing WHATSOEVER on it. My point is about individuals, not groups, and your insistence on trying to label everyone who belongs to a group as one specific thing. That’s called prejudice and it’s at the heart of all this. I didn’t attack you at all, that’s your thing, I simply said your historical examples belong in a different argument because they have nothing to do with this one. You can interpret that how you want, and you clearly do/will, but I in no way meant what you are trying to put in my mouth.

        “You said:

        ‘You’re castigating an entire religion for its most extreme elements, God forbid someone do that to Christians (The Inquisition comes to mind).’

        Someone like you? See people like you do that all the time., and that’s what you implied here. That’s why you mentioned it, to use as some sort of equivallancy bludgeon”

        Someone like me? Who am I? You seem to know so much about what I believe (hint: you clearly have no f-ing idea what I believe). Read the comment again. I said “God FORBID” someone do that to Christians. No religion should be held wholly responsible for its most extreme element. Literally my entire point is the opposite of what you seem to think it is. The only thing I was suggesting was equivalent was the wrongness of people using extreme factions to castigate any religion, Christian or Muslim. Islam undeniably has larger and more visible extreme factions than Christianity does, but that doesn’t change the point I’m making at all, which is that extremists don’t define a religion nor the people within it who are not extreme.

        “So, why the Christian perspective, and not and Islamic one? Because Islam is a purely political movement disguised as a religion. And yes, you would attack them. You have done it here on this thread.”

        If the speaker stood up and quoted the Bible in Hebrew or Greek I would be no more or less offended by it. I have not attacked Christians at all, I am one, and you trying to twist meaning to make it seem like I did is your own agenda, I can’t control what you believe I mean. I don’t know anything about your life (and unlike you I won’t pretend to) but I spent much of mine as a CHRISTIAN missionary, and I have nothing but love and respect for Christianity, though I’m not blinded by that love to the point that I can’t see some of the ways it has been manipulated and used for evil.

        “Oh my examples are irrelevant, how do you know that when you stated yourself that you couldn’t be bothered with understanding the history of Islam? You didn’t try to argue against them because you are willingly ignorant of them. How would my arguments be irrelevant if you have no historical context to compare them to?”

        Your examples are irrelevant TO THE POINT I’M MAKING!!!!! Good Lord Jesus in Heaven, why do you refuse to acknowledge that simple and critical distinction. You want to make this discussion about history, it has zero, literally zero, to do with what I’m talking about. It’s another example of you twisting things to fit inside a box you find comfortable. I didn’t “state myself” that I couldn’t be bothered to know the history of Islam, that’s just a flat out lie, I said it has no bearing on this discussion, and it still doesn’t. If you can make everything about what you want it to be then you don’t have to actually think about anything challenging.

        “How did you eve make that logical leap. And you illustrate mine when again you stated that you are intentionally ignorant of Islam. I never implied it had a will of it’s own. I said it’s followers strictly adhere to a set of doctrines at odds with Western Civilization, either willingly, or by force.

Do you want some more historical examples, since you can’t be bothered to look them up, you little bomb thrower.”

        AGAIN, saying I am “intentionally ignorant” is a flat out lie and complete distortion. Even if you want to claim that I am ignorant, (which I’m not, it just has no bearing on this discussion), making the claim that it’s intentional is simply a deception you manufactured out of thin air. You never implied Islam has a will of its own? “Islams intentions are simple” – who is intending in that sentence? It’s not a question of logic, it’s simple reading comprehension. Islam isn’t a thing that intends, it’s a religion with many many factions, and within each faction are individual people, all of whom intend different things. No, please spare me your historical examples, they have nothing to do with what is an entirely philosophical point.

        I don’t know if “bomb thrower” is some kind of internet insult or if you’re actually suggesting I have terrorist ties because I had the audacity to disagree with you, but either way I am done trying to defend myself against accusations you’ve simply made up for reasons I don’t completely understand. You hate Islam and everyone who believes in it, got it, great, that makes you a bigot. You’re welcome to respond to this post if it makes you feel superior (I’m sure it will), but I won’t be reading it. I gave you the courtesy of trying to express myself civilly and in detail so as not to be misunderstood and yet you have consistently twisted my words and when that didn’t suffice just made something up. That isn’t benefiting anyone, least of all me. I hope you change the way you view the world but I’m done trying to convince you that you should. Good luck in all your future endeavors.

      • You are telling me I don’t know how to process information when you openly admit you don’t know the facts about the topic you are discussing. What is tedious is your refusal to answer the questions of why this press conference was turned into a political statment.

        “our examples are irrelevant TO THE POINT I’M MAKING!!!!!”

        What point are you making? I am giving you some historical background on the religion you are defending by saying that the statement he made in Arabic has political meaning. The whole article is premised on this. My examples are quite relevant.

        “You want to make this discussion about history, it has zero, literally zero, to do with what I’m talking about.”

        Well it has everything to do with what this article is about. They are giving you this historic meaning of his statements from the Koran, what they mean and their intent. How can that no have any bearing on the topic? Don’t get snotty with me because you have no reading comprehension.

        “I couldn’t be bothered to know the history of Islam, that’s just a flat out lie, I said it has no bearing on this discussion,”

        The guy makes reference to the Islamic word for God, Allah, and you think it has no bearing on the discussion? Really?

        “”Islams intentions are simple” – who is intending in that sentence?”

        Islam, a religion, with written down doctrines. The intentions of the doctrines are simple. It has a clearly formulated and planned intention. How could you possibly not know that’s what I was talking about. Do you not write things with an intent? What philosophical point am I missing.

        “You hate Islam and everyone who believes in it, got it, great, that makes you a bigot. ”

        No. that means I have discernment. There are some things that deserve your hate. See, a little coward like you get’s to have lofty opinions about tolerance even though they have no idea what they should and should not tolerate. You get to have those opinions because of people like me and Lt. Col West. I am not trying to censor you, I have first amendment protections too, unlike in the Arab world. Throwing acid on your woman because she get’s uppity or selling your children, or pushing them into forced marriages should not be tolerated. As I have said and gave historical examples of – which you hate because they prove you a fool – is that Islam is the most bigoted belief system on the planet. It has a system of forced subjugation and taxation on non-believers. What do you call that?

        You also said I don’t know anything about you, well you are the one that called me the xenophobic bigot because I questions the sincerity of Bergdahl’s dad who again, made a poltical statement by opening his remarks in ARabic.

      • Allowing someone to speak at the WH and not censoring their speech is treason? That is essentially what the article is about. You all seem to be blaming Obama for something another person said in his presence.

      • Josh. The treason that aar33178 is speaking of is the fact that the POTUS went around congress to make this trade. That is against the law and is considered treason. The whole thing stinks.

      • You should really take a look in the mirror and decide if you are an American or a muslim. If you don’t live in this country and are most assuredly NOT an American, then your opinion means diddly squat. If you live here, then maybe you should look to moving somewhere where they defile and attack all American values, just like the liberal idiots have been doing for years. And yeah, I think LIBERALS should all be shipped to these wonderful and peaceful countries that allow the kind of BS that izbomb is all for. It would teach them a very valuable lesson, right before they were EXECUTED BY THESE “PEACEFUL” PEOPLE. DOH!!!!

      • That’s a terrifying stance to me. I am not a Muslim, and I am most certainly an American, though I think you’re fooling yourself if you think Patriotism somehow makes you morally superior to anyone. America is a country filled with 350 million people, of whom only a very small percentage fit into the box that you seem to think they should. I shudder to think what a country of people who all think alike would become.

      • You may be born in America.. but you most certainly are not a Patriot from what I’ve read from you.. you want to rip the constitution in pieces and take all of the guns away from law abiding citizens don’t ya?? Tell the truth!! Don’t ya!!

      • What you’ve read from me? God, you encompass everything that is wrong with this country. People who want so badly to put everyone inside some box they’ve created so that they can easily and summarily dismiss anything of substance that person might have to say. You are so terrified by the idea that you might be wrong, it’s so profoundly offensive to you, that anyone who expresses something constituting even remote dissension from your hardline stance is seen as a sheep, an idiot, brainwashed, and without value.

      • USC Art 3 Sec 3: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

        Islam/ Taliban: Enemy of the United States

      • So disagree with his politics then. I wouldn’t attack a Christian on the basis of their faith, though I may disagree with the political stance that originates from it.

      • You wouldn’t attack a Christian for being Christian?

        Even IF Christianity were built around INTOLERANCE AND HATE, SPECIFICALLY CALLING FOR THE ANNIHILATION OF EVERYONE WHO IS NOT CHRISTIAN?

        Guess that’s the difference between you and … people. And the similarity between you and FOOD.

      • You don’t think. On that much we can agree.

        Christianity is about God’s grace to humanity… Islam is about conquest, hate, intolerance and is in every conceivable sense, the antithesis of Christianity.

        Christianity rests in God: Islam rests in Satan… It is a lie, from soup to Muhammad.

      • Really, since you are such a religious scholar, maybe you could enlighten us. Because I think you are just a bomb throwing troll.

      • Not getting the point Josh, the 9-11 attackers, the Gitmo priosners being released USE THEIR RELIGION TO JUSTIFY THEIR TERROR ACTIONS? WHAT DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND ABOUT THAT?

      • I don’t recall Christians going into a nation and killing 3,000 running 2 jets into their structures filled with people and babies. Nor blowing up ppl in another country for celebrating and innocently running a marathon. Or killing an ambassador and 4 of their most elite military soldiers. Ad nauseum. Christians don’t commit actions of revenge and violence such as that. So your argument falls apart.

      • You’re very wrong about what people who call themselves Christians have done and continue to do around the world. Religion is just that, religion, it doesn’t make a person’s decisions for them. People can find any number of reasons to do horrible things, religion is just one of them.

      • Josh, you should understand there are true Christians and fence sitting Christians. Trust the first; not the second. By your missed-the-mark statement, you have unwittingly identified yourself as not good with facts. Nor, are you good at proving you case. With you it is tit for tat and this and that.

      • Hi Kay, I’m not entirely sure what you’re trying to say here (maybe I’m just poor with facts, as you say). Couldn’t the same be said of Muslims? I’m not condemning Christians for the actions of their extremists, I’m suggesting the exact opposite. I am not making a case that needs to be proven, I am simply making a statement of philosophical position – I don’t see the value in castigating an entire religion for the actions of its most extreme members, Christian or Muslim.

      • Really, what are Christians doing around the world Josh, building roads, schools, providing water and food. Compare what Christianity has done for places like Africa compared to what Islam has done. I’ll give you a hint, it was Muslim conquerors who started the African slave trade. Oh, and Berghdahl’s dad was making a political statement when he opened his remarks in Arabic.

      • Any examples I give will just be dismissed, so I won’t even bother, but there are most certainly extreme factions of Christianity at this very moment doing horrible things in the name of their religion. You want to blame Islam for the slave trade but conveniently leave out all the American Christians who perpetuated it. Like I’ve said elsewhere, it isn’t a contest to see whose extremists are worse, it’s rather the relatively simple point that every religion has them and it isn’t fair or just to condemn all people of faith for the actions of the extreme sects, that’s exactly what Atheists tend to do.

    • ROFLMNAO!

      Yeah… anyone who claims that Islam is anything but a religion of peace, with no history of hostile intent against anyone, is clearly not paying attention.

      “EVERYONE KNOWS” that Bush/Cheney planned 9-11, lied to invade Iraq and Afghanistan… BLHBLAHBLAH SHUT THE F^3K UP!

      • Haha, wow, axe to grind much? When did I suggest any of those things? You’re castigating an entire religion for it’s most extreme elements, God forbid someone do that to Christians (The Inquisition comes to mind). You’ve hit on the biggest problem in American political discourse, trying to label everything like that makes you right. I didn’t even express a political opinion, your assumptions about me couldn’t be more wrong.

      • You suggested them all, when you set aside his religion… which is based upon: ALL OF THOSE THINGS. (Hate of Non-muslims and lies which serve to defeat non-muslims.)

        Here’s a clue: LABELS: Identify the contents. They’re an essential element of sound judgment, thus critical to a viable culture.

      • Dude, the Inquisition? Really? How about we deal with actual happening events of today. Obviously there have been terrible acts committed while hiding behind a “Christian” agenda in the past, and they should have been (and was) shut down back then. We are dealing with things that are happening right now, not a thousand years ago! Muslims are responsible for the acts of these extremist today and they need to shut it down, so yes, just like you threw all Christians under the bus on the Inquisition comment, you should likewise hold all Muslims responsible for the actions of their extremists.

      • The jihadist Muslims rode with Mohammed, swarming into villages to kill all inhabitants that refused to bow to Allah. They’ve always been a part of a man made religion that would not have had a Holy Book had they not had the Bible to pilfer.

      • Please let me know when was the last time a Christian strapped explosives to themselves and suicided in a crowded restaurant?

      • Josh, don’t you see? You stood up for Obama? What you said marks your thinking as not founded on scriptural truth. You are an onion in a field of lavender. Go find an onion field where you will be recognized as you wish.

      • From a moral point, it is God that points the way to things that are righteous. I think America has been severely burned enough by Islamic terrorists, don’t you? How on earth could you say otherwise? I find it odd that you defend them, instead of Christians. I think that says more than your educated self, recognizes.

      • Muslim extremists killed more people on 911 than the Inquisition did in 350 years. You don’t know the history of Islam, After Muhomhad died in 632 they conquered the entire Middle East, North Africa and Spain. Well before the Crusades which were a response to 450 years of Muslim invasion. They are still doing it today, only a complete moron wouldn’t understand that.

      • Ah, here we go again with the name calling. I think that’s 12 people now that have called me a moron or idiot. I can count on one hand the number of times in the thousands of interactions I’ve had on the internet that this has happened previously. Maybe that says something about the people who congregate here.

        As to your point, it isn’t a contest. Nobody is defending extremists of any form, my only argument has been that condemning all for the actions of some is intellectually lazy. It’s easy to put labels on people, much harder to actually understand them.

      • You are putting on a clinic of intellectual laziness, that’s why you are being called a moron. I haven’t seen one specific answer from you when asked a question about Islams history or intentions. Let’s try again, do you know what Taqiyya means?

      • You can justify name calling all you want but any reason you give just makes you seem more immature, there isn’t a good one that exists. For the purposes of this discussion I don’t honestly care about their history, and the intention of any Muslim is his own, not that of the religion. Just like some Christians embrace turn the other cheek, others embrace eye for an eye, it’s a personal choice. Would take me a matter of seconds to list 20 passages in The Bible that are, by modern standards, atrocious. The only thing I’ve done is refuse to take the bait in engaging in some kind of religious atrocity contest.

        Your problem, and people like you, is that you want every discussion to fit inside the framework you find most comfortable. If someone refuses to let you hijack their point and make it something it isn’t you call them dishonest. My point has nothing to do with which religion has more to answer for, even if Christianity was squeaky clean my point would be the same, condemning every member of a religion because it has extreme elements is intellectually lazy and removes all nuance from a discussion that seriously demands it.

      • BTW, what is your point? Do you even have one? First you equate all religions to be equally awful, without any proof, and then proceed to defend one. The one you are defending isn’t even a religion really, it’s a gang.

      • Yeah, again, you’re not really following me at all. Never said all religions are “equally awful” in fact I’ve stated numerous times that it isn’t a contest, though even if it were that has absolutely nothing to do with what I’m saying. I haven’t defended a religion, the fact that you think I have just tells me that you can’t even effectively process information that doesn’t fit in the box you want it to. All I’ve done, and all I will ever do, is defend individual people from being labeled based on your incorrect assumptions about a group they belong to. Christian, Muslim, Mormon, Atheist, whatever, are not defined by their religious beliefs, they are as different from one another on an individual basis as you and I are (and that’s very different). Some form groups that represent certain dangerous ideologies, those people need to be fought, but assuming that those who do not belong to that group are somehow responsible for it is ridiculous.

      • ” All I’ve done, and all I will ever do, is defend individual people “from being labeled based on your incorrect assumptions ”

        How can you know if my assumptions are not correct if you don’t properly understand the differences between what these individuals believe. In fact, you refuse to, so yes you are apologizing for them. You are in no position to question my assumptions when you admit you don’t know what you are talking about.

        “Some form groups that represent certain dangerous ideologies,”

        Cognitive Dissonanc again. And you say I can’t process information. First you say you defend all of them equally, then you say some form groups that form dangerous ideologies. Yes, that ideology is Islam. I have explained the fact that they do form dangerous groups, like you pointed out, then you dismiss the evidence I give that proves it.

      • Bergdahl’s dad chose to make a political statment by speaking in Arabic, his son made a political statement by deserting. And make no mistake, that is what he did, we have testimony from his fellow soldiersin his unit and those who had to go on search and rescue missions, some whom lost their lives. Obama knows this and had no problem with his choice of words, and again, those are words deliberately used in the Islamic faith to claim territory for their own, because that is what Islam is all about, slavery and subjugation. Again Obama has no problem with this. Then there you come and say it’s no big deal, calling us bigots for pointing this out while defending the biggest organized form of gangsterism the planet has ever seen. How do I know this, because I know the history of it, you do not, you even admitted it.

        Obama circumvented the procedure for dealing with terrorist by not dealing with Congress and got the release of 5 top level terrorists who will be released within a year, if not allowed to conduct operations while in token custody. There were also 3 other soldiers held in captivity as well, did he bother negotiating for their release?

      • You are telling me I don’t know how to process information when you openly admit you don’t know the facts about the topic you are discussing. I label those people based not on assumptions, but facts. Again I am getting this lecture from the guy who says he isn’t interested in knowing this history of the ideology he is apologizing for. So tell me where is this group that needs to be fought, or not. Bergdahl and his father have gone on record saying that they want the prisoners of Guantanamo freed, even though they are terrorists, so, whose side are they on?

    • He is a muslim, and its a cult not a religion. You are the kind of people that say no it cant happen all the way to the wall. Why should we welcome a deserter back and why should we trade known mass killers for him???

    • Oh Josh, when you grow up, and use the logic that your creator gave you, to cleanse the brainwashing of your liberal education out of your very soul, you will see how wrong you are. Until then, keep being a sheep, so you do not stand out from all the other sheep, unaware that they are just sheep.

      • Classic rhetorical technique, suggesting all people who differ in their opinion are sheep controlled by some outside force or brainwashed to not think for themselves. You have to see how incredibly insulting that is. Of course you and the people on this website are the only one’s capable of seeing the truth, what a crock of sh*t. You have no clue what kind of education I had, for the record I grew up a missionary and was homeschooled on ACE curriculum – that’s brainwashing if I’ve ever seen it.

      • You’re a Leftist, thus a Relativist… therefore, you’re incapable of objective reasoning, which precludes you from the means to recognize the truth.

    • some day you just may grow up and deal with reality. hopefully it will before you are required to bow to allah.

    • A village is missing their idiot. It would be a toss up between you and Obama as to which one filled the job……

      • Wow, I’ve been called an idiot by 7 different people now. Is this how you treat everyone you disagree with? How can you call liberals elitist? I’ve never seen a more elitist group in my life.

      • Not sure what point you’re making. Obama isn’t running in an election. Not saying religion shouldn’t be an issue in elections, sure, vote for the guy who shares your faith, that’s human nature, but it is irrelevant to this particular issue.

      • Oh really? The fact that the president of the Unites States is providing aid and comfort to enemies of the United State is irrelevant now?

      • Intentionally obtuse much ? Sure he’s not running now but when he was the liberals loved attacking Romney over his being a Mormon. Now , suddenly Obama’s muslim religion is off limits ? Yeah Josh, I know, He’s not a muslim….isn’t there a bridge missin their troll somewhere ?

    • If he has lied about his religious affiliation then it is no longer irrelevant. People would probably not voted for him.

      • Politicians don’t lie to get elected? Is that the position you’re taking? I don’t believe he’s a Muslim, though even if he is that doesn’t change my stance on the issue.

    • Really guy??? You are just a big an idiot as the rest of them…Please, we really don’t need to hear your opinion!!

      • Who is the rest of them? Are you so secure in the certainty that you know everything about everything? I really hope not. Come on, Nina, I’m sure you’re a reasonable person, this isn’t the way politics is supposed to work. People disagree, minds are changed, compromises are made – that’s what it is supposed to be like, not each side only entertaining the opinions of people they already agree with. That’s a recipe for extremism akin to the very kind of radical Islam that we all hate.

      • There is disagreement and then there is treason. Releasing five enemies of the United States for a deserter is treason.

      • What does that have to do with anything? She said nobody needs to hear MY opinion. I did not release anyone, nor have I ever committed treason.

    • I would be interested in why you think it doesn’t matter? It may have a little to do with his moral code. Or do you think that doesn’t matter either?

    • obama is a Muslim… of THAT there is no potential for doubt. If he were tried on the evidence, by 12 objective, thus reasonable people, there’s little chance of him not being convicted.

  9. “Bowe I love you. I am your father,” said his dad, Bob Bergdahl, in the couple’s roughly 20-minute press conference in Boise, Idaho, on Sunday afternoon. “Please recognize we are on a mission… I’m so proud about how far you were willing to go to help the Afghan people.”

      • Depends on the army and period. Shooting is convenient, but I prefer handing as an example to others.

      • A public hanging of all this administration’s traitors, and no other, is needed to help settle the minds of Americans and appropriately deal with those who thought to destroy America from within.

      • To be honest I couldn’t stomach watching another human die in real life. I’ve seen enough crap on the internet ,to see it in real life …no thanks

      • In US military history, the last one was shot and that was WWII. Regardless, the US military no longer employs hanging or firing squad as the means of execution, and no military member has been executed since 1961.

      • Hanging is appropriate for traitors. General George Washington refused Major John Andre’s request to die before a firing squad for that reason. Andre, of the British army, went nobly to his hanging.

    • I am curious…. Speaking of women in combat: If a female soldier wondered off, and she was supposedly a deserter, would she be hung? Also, would it have taken this long to rescue her? She could have also claimed she was sexually harassed, and that is the reason for her wondering off. If she had a baby in captivity this would also change the dynamics. Food for thought…

      • No… It really would not matter. (or it least it should not) Desertion in the face of the enemy is one of the worst crimes any soldier can commit.

  10. The top five terrorists at Gitmo traded for an American soldier who deserted? We have lost complete control of our government and there is a traitor in the White House.

  11. So this guy says a passage from the Koran, while at a press conference, in a city built by Masons, from a country that allows homosexual unions and abortion. I guess I’m missing some point here…

    • Point this is the United States no matter what Clump Nugget No-bama says, we are a Christian nation not Islamic!

      • Christian? Far from it. There may be Christians that live here but you almost can’t tell with all the trash that is tolerated.

      • The amount of trash that is tolerated has nothing to do with how this country was founded, by Christian men. That is just a testament to how the system has been used to supress the Christina traditions this country was founded on. John Adams had a few choice words to say about Islam, essentially that it was a gang and not a religion. So yeah, allowing an ideology dedicated to the annihilation of this country, not to mention civilization in general as we know it should not be tolerated, nor are we obliged to.

      • I agree with John Adams, but just because he and his contemporaries happened to be Christians (I would debate that) they did everything to keep the Christian religion out of the government. All men were created equal but definitely not treated as such as a good Christian should. I think that if a country claims to be founded by Christians, then by that claim alone, laws normalizing practices that go against a Christian god’s law would not be tolerated.

      • Well, neither did they ban it (Christianity/religion) from the public square either.

        “I think that if a country claims to be founded by Christians, then by that claim alone, laws normalizing practices that go against a Christian god’s law would not be tolerated.”

        How about laws normalizing practices that go against basic human rights, as outlined by the Constitution. I would argue that the Founders believed your rights came from God and that you loan government power. Islam, the tenets of Sharia are completely antithetical to that. So I have no problem with laws that outlaw Sharia. If you agree with John Adams then you agree that Islam is essentially a cult and a gang and that gangsterism should probably outlawed.

      • Yes, I agree with John Adams, but I do not agree that this country was founded on Christian values. Universal values, as written in the Constitution, are not exclusive to Christianity. This country was founded on freedom, religious practices among them, not on Christianity or with Christian values. The government is void of religion, that can be recognized even today.

      • “This country was founded on freedom, religious practices among them, not on Christianity or with Christian values. The government is void of religion, that can be recognized even today.”

        Really, just because it is void of Christian values is a reflection on secular forces co-opting the government. Where do Universal values come from if not the creator of the Universe? Franklin called for prayer at the Constitutional convention and the New sessions of the House are started with a prayer. There is even an Office of the Chaplan; oaths are recited by placing the hand on the Bible, etc. There is no religious requirement of office, nor is there any express banning of religion in the public square.

      • That is what I was saying. He has no authority to claim anything. He is a little man with little man’s disease. He has no allegiance to God, or America. Why did this come as a ‘shock’ after the first four years.

    • Lets consider that his father has immersed himself in the Taliban tradition and Islam .. that in it’s self should tell you he is NOT on our side anymore

      • The militants holding this guy reported that he did not embrace Islam, instead he continued to celebrate Christmas and Easter- even welcoming his captures to do the same. If that is true, then he may have different beliefs than his father. This is America, it’s not about taking sides if you have different beliefs.

      • Take your pick, many news outlets reported on this. If you read my comment carefully, I wrote, “…If that is true…” Blindly follow? What a d-bag.

      • You obviously can’t understand English when I say who told them that?!? I did not say who told you that. And of course out with the insults from you. Maybe you should go to school and learn basic English then you wouldn’t be on here misunderstanding it

      • Ummm who told them that? Take your pick, many news outlets reported on this (that means it came from more than one source). If that is true… (that means I do not blindly follow whatever I hear much). So, where’s my misunderstanding or lack of comprehensions of basic (not familiar with that curriculum since it hasn’t been used since WWII, o.k. maybe still used in Asia) English?

    • Hala, All of the above are just tools of the Jesuits to undermine this nation and its liberties. The ultimate goal is a backlash which will lead to Evangelicals joining forces with Rome to “take America back.” Then the real trouble will begin.

      • First, Islam is a creation of Roman Catholicism, and is used as their tool. Reagan reestablished diplomatic relations with the Vatican after Congress had banned it for 117 years because the papacy was linked to Lincoln’s assassination and supported the Confederacy. Roman Catholicism is the enemy of America’s liberties, and therefore underhandedly supports wars and destructive policies in our government and society. Communism is also their tool, as they used it to smash the Orthodox Church in Russia and Eastern Europe. Same goes for Hitler and the Nazis, intrinsically linked to Rome. They are now polishing their image, seeking for ecumenical union with Protestants when America is wrecked, in order to become its “savior,” when they have been the source of its problems all along.

    • surprising ? Obama is nothing and has no authority to claim the W.H. as anything. Not even president. Only 2 more years.

  12. People need to call their representatives and just ask them point blank what the heck is up. As soon as my husband walk s through that door and watches our grand daughter, I will be contacting mine with serious questions. We need all the Americans we can to be calling congress and televisions stations asking.

  13. One traitor bails out another, and in the process frees five mass murderers. This president has a hard-on for Islamofascists.

    • Apparently the same doesn’t apply to the director of that islam video that Obama and Hillary pinned the Benghazi terrorist attack on

    • The evidence is shouting at you. What are you hearing? Tell us what the words of his fellow soldiers tell you. Tell us what the fathers tweet that ‘he won’t rest until all GITMO prisoners are freed’ means. The evidence is clear. What are you hearing?

    • He left his post during a military operation. He’s a deserter.
      Several soldiers lost their lives conducting a search for him. You think Weaver.

    • What???? He’s proven himself guilty on a multitude of issues. His “house of cards” his elite circle is abandoning ship. Even Jay Carny has left him. Do you watch any news that does not protect him? At last, more and more stations are leaving his side. What does it take to make you wake up?

  14. Traitors should hang, the sooner, the better they understand. I can’t believe what passes for knowledge and understanding these days. We’ll let you screw us over at the expense of our God, country, kids, and jobs. Back in the day, a man loyal to the country would take care of this. Now, we go the way of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and let our women be raped by the hood claw of the muslim while our politicians lap up the blood. What a spineless bunch of pansies we have become. If they won’t take care of business, we the people need to step up to the plate, banish PC, and banish our antagonists for good.

  15. Nice, with the Sleeper-Cell In Chief right next to him, probably praying to Allah through the bloodthirsty child molesting Muhammed as well…

  16. Bergdoll Needs to be Shot by a Firing Squad or Hung in The Public Square he Trashed our Country and Our Military before he walked off the Join the Enemy Taliban

  17. the State of Idaho is having a party for him and a parade. This guy is not a hero. We are in big trouble. thank you John Boehner and Eric Cantor for standing by Obama.

  18. If it was a female soldier would this have been treated differently? She could claimed falsely she wondered off because she was sexually harassed? if she had a child in captivity would this change the dynamics?

  19. This is one big can of stinky worms. I cannot believe that we all sit by saying…..”we cannot even try to impeach him because he is our first black president”, that makes no sense at all, just lemmings being politically correct and walking off the ledge! I am beside myself disgusted with all that is being done to our great country.

    • Obama is not our first black president, he is our first HALF-BLACK president. His mother was white. He is the worst excuse for a president, leader, or person that has ever been placed in a position of power….EVER!

      • Bush was at least a citizen. He loves America. He was 10 times more a man then Obama will ever hope to be. So stop blaming Bush for all of Obama’s failings you troll.

      • First of all, having an opinion that doesn’t coincide with yours makes me American, not a troll. Obama was a citizen in 2008 and still is, otherwise he’d not have been eligible to run. If you or every other birther can’t prove otherwise, you’re just running on fumes. What failings are you speaking of? We are out of Bush’s recession and economic collapse, Obamacare is working, home values and sales are back up, our unemployment rate is declining, we haven’t had a terrorist attack or a war start under Obama, and yet he has “all these failings” that make him less of a man than Bush. Bush was incompetent. He couldn’t run a business in a state full of oil, and he ran our country into the ground. If a brown man with a name resembling something Muslim is a threat to you, just admit it. I don’t think you can formulate a real argument to back up your statement.

      • Obama has NEVER proven he was a citizen. The 17th amendment says to be a citizen you must either be born inside the borders of the USA or be born to parents that are both US citizens. Obama’s father was NEVER a US citizen. Obama went to college as a foreign student. He even had all his important papers sealed by court order. I believe this proves he is hiding the truth of his citizenship.
        As far as Bush causing the economic issues we have been through, if you knew anything about the economy you would know the economy runs about 7-9 years behind the times. What happens in government policy now will really show up in several years. So the truth of the economic collapse was really because of Clinton’s over regulation of business which is common with democrats.
        Now to the idea that Bush could not run a business, he owns and runs a large ranch in Texas. He is a multi-millionaire because of it. While in office his vacations were not to Hawaii, Africa, Martha’s Vineyard, He went home to Texas and WORKED.
        As far as me being scared of a “brown man with a name resembling a muslim” I could care less. I believe time has proven that Barack Hussien Obama is a liar. He stole another mans name and social security number( Barry Sotoro) that has been dead since the early 1900’s. He has continually attacked all religions other then Islam. He has attacked the media that has stood up to him and exposed the truth by breaking into their computers, tracing all their phone calls, and trying to imprison them. He has continually attacked our constitution, he has selectively enforced and chosen to only partially enforce laws as he choses. This alone is enough to have him prosecuted and jailed. HE has single handedly ruined the reputation of the United States around the world. He bows down to leaders of other nations.
        The only reason the unemployment rate is dropping is that people have given up on looking for work. After you run out of unemployment benefits your name is removed from the rolls of the “unemployed”. This way it looks like you have found a job, even if you haven’t. Also if you take a part-time job or take a job that you are WAY over qualified for, you are removed from those rolls. Under Obama those that are on government assistance has more then doubled. Obamacare is a joke. Supposedly 7.5 million have signed up, but no one has paid for it, and over 2 million lost their coverage BECAUSE of Obamacare. Many of those that have signed up are receiving medicaid and will not be paying anyway.

      • Well, you got your fancy piece of paper from some college. You are now smarter than most of us. You have eaten the bile and crap that the uberlibetards spew at our young people. You have fallen from the same tree as Barry O. Nuts don’t fall far from that tree! Do you understand that several fine young men gave their lives to try and effect the rescue of your “hero” Bergdhal? Some of these men also attended the same educational system as you. Fortunately they did not buy in on they liberal tirades as you. We should be honoring these men, not the POS you seem to adore.

      • Thank you Mr. Coleman, That Ed guy is really starting to bother me. A lot of these folks don’t understand the whole story. Thanks for also pointing the whole story out. I’ll bet your a vet, as I am. Thank you for your service, and if not, then thank you for being a true American… Hooah

      • Yeah, I got a “special” email from our buddy EDDIE. It started out “You summed it up. Intelligence threatens you. Colleges are liberal. No colleges teach critical thinking”. Dumb ass, admits he knows or was taught nothing about critical thinking. just another one of the Ozombies. Just sheeple with their heads up their wooly butts. Hoorah!

      • thanks for the reply. I am really starting to think that this once great nation is stating to fail. I come from a long history of military Family. Most have gone on home, And I am kinda glad because of the shape that this country is in, and it’s getting worse every day. I don’t know how to stop it. And we have not one person that seems fit to run it any more. I really can’t wrap my mind around all the BS that teachers of all grades, and the so called higher learning intuitions. I can’t figure why the teachers hate the very country that affords them the freedom to teach, and be safe. What could they possibly want of a country that would be ran on my way or the highway ( prison ). I have endured so much for America, as well as my Family has. I really just don’t know anymore. As one could see from this rambling note shows. I wish you well in the coming months, and years. Stay low, and watch your six.

      • You summed it up. Intelligence threatens you. Colleges are liberal. No colleges teach critical thinking which means you base your understanding (or lack thereof) of a subject based on empirical evidence. I don’t adore our president, but I also don’t view him as a tyrant the way you do. I believe that he has done more to improve the country we live in than to harm it. The lack of attacks, winding down of wars, better economy, and declining unemployment prove it. I don’t like that Gitmo still exists or that gays are given the same rights as heterosexuals in terms of being federally recognized. Why? Because they are people too, not an abomination or a population with some agenda you think you’ve pinpointed. My education is in health care. I know how the system works and I know bullshit from truth where that’s concerned. I will not condemn a president who has worked tirelessly to reinvigorate our reputation with the rest of the world, and who has worked to get the indigent population health care. I won’t accept your GUESS that my education has made me more liberal than I already was or that you think you know something (presuming here you haven’t gotten a college education) about college, when you’ve never attended it. That’s what people like you do. You guess about how the world works and throw hate-speech at it, while you never really stop to examine what college is teaching “the young people.” There is nothing wrong with being educated, thinking things through, KNOWING things.

      • #1-You start out stating, in your own words, “No colleges teach critical thinking”. So, you don’t think things through, just spew your liberal taught clap-trap.
        #2-Just dispute the following;
        a; 23 million unemployed.
        b; 43 straight months of unemployment over 8%.
        c; 45 million currently on food stamps.
        d; Black poverty at record highs.
        e; Gasoline prices doubled.
        f; Black youth unemployment over 50%.
        g; Hispanic unemployment over 10%.
        h; Food prices up over 25%.
        i; Illegals set to receive $7 billion in free money-translated, taxpayers money.
        j; Middle class has lost nearly 1/3 of its net worth.
        k; Worst economic recovery in 75 years.
        l; Worst job creation record since 1945.
        m; Average household income declined $4,300.
        n; US credit score downgraded twice.
        o; $7 trillion added to US debt, more than ALL OTHER presidents COMBINED!!

        ” I will not condemn a president who has worked tirelessly to reinvigorate our reputation with the rest of the world, and who has worked to get the indigent population health care.” We support our enemies with taxpayer dollars and they still hate us. Our “allies” I am afraid don’t have much use for us anymore either, thanks to Barry. Of all the people that have signed up for Barry’s Obamacare scam, only something like 550,000 have sent in any money for their premiums. Don’t forget that over 5milliom got their insurance cancelled.

        I could go on and on, but with your logic, I am sure you will end up calling me a racist, a hater or some other keyword taught in your critical thinking libetard school. I also went to college, did a 4 year skilled trades apprenticeship and served in the military. Glad I learned to think for myself and not to think what I was taught by a professor.

      • I left out a comma. “No, colleges teach critical thinking.” That’s ALL colleges teach. How to think, how to research, how to study, how to report findings based on empirical evidence. ALL I do/did was research of reputable sources (I had to determine which were/were not reputable) and report findings for papers, journal entries, etc. Unemployment rates have, since September of 2012, been less than 8%. See:

        http://www.ncsl.org/research/labor-and-employment/national-employment-monthly-update.aspx

        As for the number of people on food stamps, the population is increasing, therefore the number will always go up. We are also in the recovery phases of a recession where millions of jobs were lost, so the numbers include those people. Black poverty has been a problem since WELL before Obama took office, so if he hasn’t made life on earth heaven for everyone in 5 years, please excuse the man for not being God. As for inflation, Obama has NOTHING to do with it. Nothing, whatsoever. Same with gas prices. You can look up on the good ol’ internets numerous articles about the president having NOTHING to do with either of those economic developments. I could go on, but you believe unemployment has been over 8% all this time, when in fact it hasn’t been for almost two straight years, so why bother?

  20. i still say something stinks about this guy who takes a leisurely stroll about the afghan countryside without no other weapon than his pee pee. i think this entire mess is something the taliban and him cooked up!!!

  21. In Arabic he said “thanks to this clown Obozo we now have 5 muslime terrorist leaders back to murder you infidels” and added don’t tell this monkey they would have traded for mooch just to get a burka on her sour ugly transgender face

  22. His whole family are traitors , speaking that language on the steps of the White House and Obama just standing there acting like it’s just fine with him but what can you expect.He doesn’t recognize our laws or anything else.

      • Arabic Islam is the enemy of modern civilization. It needs to be eradicated from the face of the planet.

      • The kettle calls the pot black. How ignorant it is to conflate Islamic religious fervor with a language, what about every non-Islamic speaker of Arabic? You said a LANGUAGE should be banned. Any real proponent of freedom ought to be disgusted at you for that. That is censorship of a high, high order. I am not saying the coward is not despicable, but what I am saying is that is also despicable that you are talking in terms no better than your enemies. Burn them all. That makes one a relative Hitler in one principle. How many women and children innocent of their fathers and husbands and uncles abuses and zealotry would be killed under such principle? How many innocent Muslims would die? And innocent Muslim is not a misnomer, it is a difficult thing to see in this age and one cannot let themselves be deluded by liberal nonsense that holds Islam as utterly harmless, but is possible to be a Muslim and not be a jihadist. It is about what forces control the discourse of Islam. It is the virulent ultra conservative forces that control the discourse and it is most definitely supported by the wealthy elite of the east because it keeps the public fighting over matters of religion while they continue to walk away with all the money. Funny how much they are like us even wile being starkly different, no? It wasn’t always that way and in fact the rise of the scourge of modern Islamic discourse is relatively recent in a historical perspective considering that out founding fathers respected the Islamic intellectuals and thinkers of their time. Much longer before that, though, when Europe was closer to what the M.E. looks like today while the East was the pinnacle of civilization, innovation, and intellectual discourse. It might be wholly impossible to regain that for ideas don’t just die like people do, but it could well be possible for a cultural shift to happen within Islam when people are courageous enough to stem the tide. I won’t hold my breath, but genocidal attitudes against an entire cultural sphere definitely does not help the situation.

      • “innocent muslim” is an oxymoron. They can convert or die. Give them the same choice they give Christians. Back it up with nukes if need be.

      • Arabic is a language, not a religion. Islam, a typically peace-condoning religion is not the death of the world. In fact, just as many lives (probably more) have been lost on account of the god you believe in throughout human history. I don’t even know how to dignify what you just said with a proper response. Arabic Islam. Oh boy.

      • Let me simple it up for you. Islam as it is practiced by radical Arabs is an abomination. Arabic as a language was developed by the people who looted the Holy Roman Empire and then centuries later passed this knowledge off as their own.

        and the only reason Christianity has a higher body count is because it has been around longer. Give Islam another thousand years or so.

      • That didn’t simple it up enough. Islam “AS PRACTICED BY RADICALS…” I know where this is going. You also then went on to agree that radicals exist not only in Islam, but in Christianity as well, making radical Christianity just as much “an abomination” or threat to the world as the radical practice of Islam. You can’t say you’re right and Islam is wrong when both produce the same sort of horrendous misinterpretation leading to death and destruction JUST because you bought into one and not the other. That’s a losing argument on all fronts. You’re simply being intolerant to the few bad apples in another’s religion while blindly excusing the ones that stemmed from your own.

      • As I said… When was the last time you had Christian suicide bombers that were touted as heroes by major religious leaders?

      • What is a “major religious leader?” The pope? The pope is a figurehead appointed by the establishment of the church. He has no bearing on anything. In fact, the current pope seems to have an awful lot of progressive ideals that very few of his followers share. He does not, however, have any influence over the rise or fall of humanity. I am not religious, and for obvious reasons. The groups on all fronts are too full of crazies for me to see myself falling into one. While fanatics might kill en masse, they will never destroy humanity because we don’t all think exactly the same or believe in the same god (or any god for that matter). We should be so lucky that is the case, otherwise you might actually be right.

      • I’ll make it simple. Cite a single case where a Christian suicide bomber was lauded by a cardinal or the protestant equivalent there of. (For the record, most imams would fit into that category as there is no muslim Pope.)

      • No, but what this man and his son stand for is…..death to all Americans, Christians and Jews that do not convert or stand for Islam.

  23. Like a cancer. This country is being consumed from within… I still remember a Russian by the name of Nikita Khrushchev telling us that many years ago. And THAT is how “these things” are planned. Because “they” know it takes time…Well, it’s far past the time for this country to wake up and fight back.

  24. Worst case scenario this soldier went “native” and his training as a jihadist muslim is complete. His first usefulness to his handlers is this prisoner trade…he awaits further orders. Best case scenario is he went AWOL and found out the poor muslims weren’t so innocent and benign as he thought and daddy converted to islam to save him.

      • Article 85 UCMJ “(a) Any member of the armed forces who—

        (1) without authority goes or remains absent from his unit, organization, or place of duty with intent to remain away therefrom permanently;

        (2) quits his unit, organization, or place of duty with intent to avoid hazardous duty or to shirk important service; or

        (3) without being regularly separated from one of the armed forces enlists or accepts an appointment in the same or another one of the armed forces without fully disclosing the fact that he has not been regularly separated, or enters any foreign armed service except when authorized by the United StatesNote: This provision has been held not to state a separate offense by the United States Court of Military Appeals in United States v. Huff, 7 U.S.C.M.A. 247, 22 C.M.R. 37 (1956), is guilty of desertion. Article 86 “Any member of the armed forces who, without authority—

        (1) fails to go to his appointed place of duty at the time prescribed;

        (2) goes from that place; or

    • No, they won’t. Atheists protest only Christian prayer, because Christians will argue their point in a civil and lawful manner. Atheists will never protest Muslim prayer, because otherwise Muslims will come, rape and kill their wives, their daughters and themselves.

  25. Only this Islamic president would tolerate such disrespect. 2-1/2 more years and we are THROUGH with him. Jesus Christ will usher in better days with a president that I am praying will be Christian. If any of the Obama-bots are still nodding and clapping for him in the midst of all the tragic failure he has brought into our country, then shame on them. We need a Redeemer for this country. The most obvious of course, Is Jesus Christ. The second is a Christian man who will counsel with our Lord upon serious matters regarding our nation. We need to reclaim the America we fought so hard for before this tyrant took over with his many immoral beliefs. Obama is as crazy as his father. They are one in the same, however Obama tries to come across, a more “polished” version. He knows better than God in how the family was meant to be structured. He knows better than God in his very “PRO DEATH” stance in the killing of innocent unborn babies. He mocks the U.S. Constitution-he is above it. Really people? You vote for a man of such poor quality? I will never understand. He’s bankrupted our country. He was responsible for Benghazi, and after 2 yrs. he has done NOTHING. He aided in giving guns to drug lords in MEXICO. He’s doing nothing to bring our soldier in MX that is wrongly imprisoned, home. He treats our military like 2nd class citizens. His “inner circle” is a crumbling house of cards. And yet…….

  26. I don’t appreciate him doing that and I am highly suspicious of him and his son, however I also don’t appreciate misinformation. Muslims say that before they go to the bathroom, before they cook, dress, go to work. I would like this CIA, an alphabet specialist/analyst to explain further her assertion that it is “claiming the Whitehouse” ?

    • Are you religious? If so, I think the judging is supposed to be done by someone else. If not, please stop being so ignorant.

      • You didn’t say which religion you were talking about. If it’s Christianity, then you are mistaken. Jesus said to judge rightly, to judge based on substance and not appearances, to use discernment.

      • First of all, the Bible never says not to judge in instances of crime or at all for that matter, don’t quote the Bible out of context….it makes you the ignorant one. Also, there is ample evidence to support people’s concerns. But you can go ahead and follow your leader without question but I refuse to be a sheep.

      • Oh, there is definitely ignorance happening here, but its not on the part Biff Wellington. I would question the intelligence of someone who trolls conservative weblogs and sites looking to start a fight they cannot possibly win. You see, we are armed with facts and truth. You have misguided opinions and dis-information. Good luck with that.

      • Why would you question my intelligence because I’m here on account of a conservative friend posting what I believe to be propaganda garbage perpetuated by the anti-Obama cult you all represent? I don’t need to win anything. Obama has done nothing wrong because you or your friends can’t prove he has. You cite facts and truth, yet can’t specify what any of that is. Dis-information is not a word. The word is misinformation, so my intelligence can be validated by my ability to articulate my side of the coin using proper grammar. You believe what you believe because you hate democrats, not because Obama is a bad person. If I am politically “blue,” you will inherently disagree with whatever I or my public officials representing me have to say. You will conspire to rip apart every motive of every decision Obama ever makes and will predictably do it until his term has ended. You will, as your friends will, slander him until the cows come home because that is what you people do. Nevermind the actual improvements he’s made to our country since he took office and the fact that our economy is no longer in the tank. You don’t like him because he isn’t you or those that think what you think. That sort of blind and divisive jerkiness is more anti-American than anything Obama has done since taking office.

  27. All this shows me is one very happy father who wants everyone including those of other religious faiths to know how blessed he feels.

      • I am qualified to sit on his court-martial if that’s what you’re asking. The son deserted in the face of the enemy. That’s a capital offense.

      • Absolutely, he deserted his post and collaborated with the enemy. Under UCMJ, that is a capital offense with the maximum punishment of death.

    • Mr. Katz , Don’t they want you and all of your people wiped off the face of the earth? We just released 5 terrorists and by the way; We can’t get a U.S.Marine war veteran out of a border Mexican jail

    • And if he had stood before the White House and thanked the God of Abraham and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the media, the left and even Obama would have fallen to the ground in foaming at the mouth convulsions and fits of hysteria. The hypocrisy of these people is disgusting and so obvious, yet you are going to sit there and act like it was nothing. You’re a blind fool, wake up and smell the truth, while you still can….

  28. Did anyone notice the smile Obama made just as the dad glorified Allah? It seemed as though it was a smile of agreement and happiness.

  29. We are in the midst of a war with Islam and this is one of the many clues. The question is, “Will we fight it or surrender?”

  30. You people will find just about everything to bitch about that suits your opinion that Obama is the devil. Get laid already.

      • And what exactly is a “liberal college?” I live in a city (Rochester) that is full of republicans.

      • Well I guess you feel very uncomfortable living in an area that you think everybody is stupid or low level voters. But back to your question, pick one, just about all of them have been infiltrated by liberal/progressive professors. There is rarely any objective teaching anymore. You proved that you do not have the ability to use critical thinking or research your own opinions. You show examples of this on just about all your post in this thread. You sound like every other parrot talking head spitting out talking points put out by this administration and MSM. You also show a lack of historical perspective on this subject. So my assessment is you were indoc’d like the majority of college grads today.

      • Who’s calling my fellow citizens stupid? I have a lot of republican friends, and we even agree on a lot of things related to politics. Being of a different political affiliation (for me anyway) doesn’t constitute being a low-level voter or in any way stupid. It’s saying things that are out of proportion or blatantly false or unfair that causes me to speak up. Most republicans on here, however, will learn only that I am a democrat and will need no other information to determine whether I have anything good to say. They will also look at my profile picture and assume that I’m a “libtard” who’s “drinking the kool-aid.” Do you find that sort of behavior diplomatic or fair? Why do you and your friends on here perpetuate it? You believe you are all psychics who can totally judge a book by its cover and that nothing I say is worth your while. That’s not going to work in the realm of politics, just as it isn’t right now. P.S. One of my professors (that I KNOW of) is republican. I also date a teacher, who has coworkers (many) that are republicans. This infiltration you speak of is based on what information? You went into my college and requested this information? You didn’t. You don’t know what you’re talking about, but on here, surrounded by fellow “spouters of no information,” you validate each others blanket assessments on how the world works or how progressive liberals infect colleges. It’s purely and simply crazy talk, and until you see for yourself, I’ll just sit here and laugh in private while those that have never stepped on a college campus tell me about the teachers I know very well and what their political motives are. It’s so baseless it’s almost sad. As for talking points, the stuff I say is no more or less a talking point than the things you’ve called out Obama on. The citizenship, the Muslim religion, the asinine takeover of traditional America by the gay and liberal agenda. It’s all nonsense, and you choose not to see it as such merely because it represents an ideology that’s not your own. Welcome to America, a melting pot of ideals, religions, ethnicity, and political preference. You’re not going to like it much if you continue to operate on the “I’m right, you’re wrong” premise just because we see things differently.

      • I’m afraid I’ll need specific examples. Benghazi doesn’t count because he didn’t screw anyone.

      • Really, Benghazi didn’t screw anyone? Please watch something besides MSNBC to get your info. For those of us who know how the military works, things could have been done to help the four Americans that were left to die. If the President had been in the room, all he had to do was tell the NMCC to issue the execute order. That did not happen. Yes Ed, people got screwed, contrary to what you saw on MSNBC or learned in school. Requests for more security were ignored for weeks if not months. Yes Ed, people got screwed. Bergdahl’s own unit says he snuck off in the middle of the night leaving his weapon and other equipment. At least six soldiers died trying to find him. Now, Obama frees the worst five terrorist leaders in exchange for the only US soldier (who snuck out of camp and went to the Taliban) to ever be voluntarily turned back over once capture by Islamic terrorist. Once those five rejoin the fight, more people are going to get screwed. Besides these examples, the IRS, NSA, Obamacare lies have left this administration with no credibility. Do you need more examples, or is this enough for you to start thinking for yourself rather than letting MSNBC do it for you?

      • 1. I don’t watch MSNBC to get my information. When I need it, I examine all fronts from all biases and formulate my own opinion based on consistencies or inconsistencies in the data. I didn’t say Benghazi didn’t screw anyone, did I? I will say, however, that Obama is not to blame for it. If you can solely blame Obama for Benghazi, then I have to ask if you solely blamed Bush for the NUMEROUS Benghazi-like incidents occurring under is watch that led to 10 times more deaths. Did you blame Bush for those? Do you know about those? Let’s at least be consistent in the name of fairness. Where do you figure my schooling has anything to do with any of my thinking in terms of politics? I’m not a political science major and they do more in college than send you from room to room, playing MSNBC on televisions for hours at a time, contrary to your belief. 2. Again, I don’t follow MSNBC as my sole source of info, just as you shouldn’t use this site or Fox News for yours. The NSA has existed long before Obama came into office, and Bush signed into law the Patriot Act, making phone tapping of civilians legal, while allowing government officials to come into your home and perform searches while you aren’t there and for no pre-stated cause. We’ve been spied on longer than just Obama’s presidency, and no amount of denial on your part will change that truth.

    • your right because he has done NOTHING to make people suspicious…Watch Homeland dude this stinks of something like that

      • You can be suspicious all you want, but if the government isn’t knocking down your door and unlawfully imprisoning you, you’re just being paranoid. Presidents before Obama have, behind closed doors, negotiated in ways that won’t please everyone. One that most republicans revere (Reagan) did it, and if you have to negotiate with bad people, there is inherent give and take, which are the principles of negotiation.

      • Well apparently you know nothing of history. No government starts knocking on your door unlawfully imprisoning people…and let me dumb this down for you. If a child old throws a temper tantrum and you give then what they want. Then does it again and again and you continue to cave do they eventua stop because you cave or do they keep going and even get worse to get there way more and more? Same thing here. You can not reward terrorists and break the law while doing it and expect everyone to think its ok. Obama has broke the constitution dozens of times and I blame congress for not doing its job and the American people for being stupid enough to keep voting for Democrats

      • No government does that huh? Do you know what the KGB is? Do you know of Saddam Hussein and his secret police? That’s just two examples of “my not knowing history.” People are oppressed and, by our standards, unlawfully detained TODAY all over the world. We are not talking about a child’s temper here. We are talking about human lives. Obama doesn’t make decisions on his own. He is surrounded by both democrats and republicans who advise him and his decisions each and every day. When, again, has Obama “broke” (I think you mean violated) the Constitution? If you can say he did it “dozens of times,” I expect a list of at least 10 (less than ONE dozen) examples of this that I can’t refute. Ready? Go!

      • lol hope reading wasn’t your major…I said no government STARTS out that way. The Nazi’s lied about the Jews starting with just blaming them for things until they put them in gas chambers. They didn’t just throw em in to begin with. Obama is not advised by many republican’s that I can think of care to name who they are? And sine you asked…

      • Congratulations on your ability to Control + C, Control + V from some some tisaboutfreedom BLOG, which is full of BS. I know a good copy/paste when I see it, and I won’t make the mistake so many on here make by just eating it for breakfast and shitting out falsities. This is the same page that talks about Obama’s “war on coal and fossil fuels.” Climate change is a thing. Continuing to use dirty fuels which are harmful to the environment both in extracting them as well as using them is a moronic thought process. Wanting to use renewable resources such as wind and solar power is not waging war.
        This is not a legit site to reference anymore than Wikipedia is. Try again.

      • Again, you’re citing a slew of “Opinion” columns. These reputable news outlets hire people to stir up conversation through opinion writing. I should know, I do the same thing about craft beer for a local paper. My job isn’t to be a brewing professional who knows everything about everything beer. I’m an enthusiast with a breadth of experience to draw from and the writing know-how to pull it off. If everything you’ve linked me to is irrefutably true, I would think his job would be much more in jeopardy than it is. Why is this information only circulating around the “blogosphere,” and not being picked up by major networks, regardless of political bias?

      • Ya climate change is so real it can’t even be proven lol. The Founder of the weather channel absolutely destroyed this myth. You think the earth just always stayed the same? it never got hot and never got cold? If it was warming so much why did basically the entire USA experience record low temps? How about the expedition that went to show the polar ice caps were melting and got stuck in ice so thick they had to send a rescue mission?

      • Jesus, Paul, you really have fallen off the tracks a long way. 1. There is no reputable scientist ON THIS PLANET that any longer disputes climate change. 2. Climate change, not “global warming,” which is a misnomer, is absolutely occurring and DOES NOT ONE BIT have anything to do with how cold the weather gets. Just because Antarctica still exists doesn’t mean that something isn’t happening. You are a classic case of the frog in hot water. If it doesn’t happen in the blink of an eye, it clearly isn’t happening. The ice caps are melting all over the planet and glaciers are retreating. With that, cold water is making its way into warmer currents, rising sea levels and causing larger and more severe storms than ever before recorded. You merely have had to be awake this past decade to see that record warm temperatures and record numbers of severe storms are occurring worldwide. I am not even going to argue with you about climate change. There is no argument to be had, and you just need to leave this republican garbage information void for 20 minutes to pick up the important data about its certainty. If I can’t convince you that climate change is real, I’ve wasted my time, and so will anybody else with half a brain trying to convince you that your perception of reality is not only askew, but horrendously wrong.

    • While Obama may not be “The Devil”, he most certainly is “The Fountain of Bullshit”. The only time he lies is when his lips are moving.

    • Like his willingness to trade 5 enemy combatants for one Islamic converted traitor who abandoned his duties and country and should be facing court marshal, while letting 4 real Americans burn in Benghazi? The fact that Obama is a Liar, Muslim, Traitor and Criminal is not changed or effected by this one event.

      • In this country you claim Obama has stolen from you, we are all innocent until proven guilty. There has been 0 proof that Obama is a liar, a Muslim, is not an American, or that he has been a traitor or criminal. In fact, I daresay that the president that keeps us in peace and builds our rapport with the rest of the world which previously hated us, is a one that doesn’t warrant such vile speculation and labels.

    • I wouldn’t be at all surprised that when the Muslim extremists, lead by Obama, will start their overall attack on America, that you and your liberal friends will be in the process of getting laid. That’s how unconcerned and blind you all are!

      • And when 2016 happens and Obama hasn’t led a hostile takeover of “your country,” do I get to call you out for being a paranoid and delusional granny?

      • That takeover can happen anytime. It can happen some years after Obama is out of office but I am sure he will lead in that takeover in some kind of capacity. If one man like Hitler can take over their whole country, it surely can happen here!

  31. If I was NSA and CIA I’d be watching the father, his son and the entire family very closely. They wouldn’t be able to fart with me knowing how much methane was release and the location of where it happened. Unlike Edwards Snowden who says people don’t need to be watched until after the crime — wrong answer… The father looks like a damn terrorist himself.

    • They won’t be watching this family. They are too busy watching “extremists” who use the words “conservative,” “patriot,” or “Tea Party” in their social media posts, emails, and phone conversations. 🙁

  32. Just shut up and act. Maybe you armchair analysts and critics could shut up and do something significant yourselves instead of blowing wind.

      • yes, I encouraged people to act, and do so every day of my life, rather than just debate and argue and pretend I know the real story as it gets filtered and twisted through our media.
        Try it sometime.

      • To share wisdom is really not a loss, so I really havent lost anything…maybe just some time.. but a good chuckle at your comments is not really a loss either. If you and others fail to see truths, I cant help you much more than that. On to acting instead of wasting time on comment feeds.

      • Talk about blowing wind? I ask you a simple question and you come back like you are talking to a 10 year old but lets break down your little diatribe shall we? ” yes, I encouraged people to act” So in your mind “just shut up and act” is encouragement? I think many would disagree. ” and do so every day of my life, rather than just debate and argue and pretend I know the real story as it gets filtered and twisted through our media ” So you complain about others who debate and argue and yet you come here and do that very thing! I could go on but I don’t think I need to.

  33. I hope Obummer was giving him his famous “crotch salute” when the traitor uttered those “holy” words…

  34. They need to protest his home coming and expose these muslim converts for what they said and those who took part in these TREASONOUS ACTS to allow 5 extremists to be released for a converted muslim sympathizer so they can return to their war against our country.And I don’t believe for a second that this traitor/deserter had forgotten how to speak his native tongue in five years,but was just a ploy to open these jihadists statements to the world on the White house steps.and Obama just stood there smiling!Knowing full well what he did and what was being said.

  35. I am having a very difficult time,determining who to be offended at most… First,when a guest speaks,at the W.H. any portion of any comments,by such an individual,ALL COMMENTS,REGARDLESS OF THE SUBJECT,SHOULD BE PRESCREENED AND APPROVED,PRIOR TO ABUSING SUCH A TERRIFIC OPPORTUNITY… THE PRESIDENT,(sticking with,his horrific policies,concerning the combative state,which has been in existence,throughout his entire presidency) continues to attempt to soften the rhetoric,of ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALISM… WONT BE LONG NOW, UNTIL HE IS IRRELEVANT,AND POWERLESS…

  36. NOT FINDING ANYONE GUILTY OF TREASON YET , BUT GOT TO ADMIT THERE ARE SOME VERY STRANGE , UNSETTLING THING GOING ON WITH THIS INCIDENT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT WILL ALL COME OUT IN THE END , I HOPE ITS NOT ANOTHER BENGAHZI !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • You need to re-read the posting policy. It clearly says “all caps” is unacceptable. This, and every one of your past posts violates the policy. Stop being lazy, and convey your thoughts like a civilized individual.

  37. WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY HAS HE NOT BEEN ARRESTED!!! WHY WHY WHYW HY IS HE STILL IN OFFICE!! REPORT THAT FOR ME>> TELL ME THE ANSEWR TO THAT!!

      • He attacked? By saying he is still in office for being black and does no wrong? hmmm where is the attack?

      • the attack is saying he is still in office for being black. why can’t you see that as a racist statement?

      • Thats not racist. That is liberal logic… He is the worst president ever and the only reason he was elected and remains a president is because he is black.

      • so you know liberal logic? how so?….Funny how your opinion, mean nothing. Yeah, I’m sure every time a black person runs for office they get elected, or is it just this black guy

      • There are plenty of black men in office, from the bottom of being Mayor, to Aldermen, to Congressmen, Senate, President and many other official heads, most of which are not corrupt like this POS in office.

      • If that’s the case then you should be outraged if someone states “Because he is black and he dues no wrong”

      • No, why would I be angry when its the truth about this president. I would only be outraged if it were a lie.

      • of course you believe its true, thats what losers do best, don’t blame the president for the sorry ass republican candidate you put out there

      • Who said I was republican? You assume too much and well you know what they say about that…. good day..

      • the attack is the stupid statement that he is still in office because he is black, insinuating that any black man is not qualified to serve as the President, especially this one that was fully voted into Office TWICE by, blacks, whites, Asians, Hispanic, Jews… and you wonder why?

      • He has a point here, if he weren’t black and if he weren’t a liberal they would be all over his ass on this for conspiring with terrorists.

      • You are really the dumb one, you make a statement to prove it then in the same breath say I can’t, without giving me the time to compose a response… Why bother when you will just ignore it the way you assume people are racist if they speak out against this president…

      • Much like you right? You have not proved me wrong in the least but yet you want to say Im wrong.. you prove Im wrong since you are challenging me.

      • you are wrong because you are an idiot or making statement like this: “He has a point here, if he weren’t black and if he weren’t a liberal
        they would be all over his ass on this for conspiring with terrorists” First of all your comment about conspiring with terrorist is bogus and wrong.. Please name these terrorist we are conspiring with, and don’t try to throw out the names of the ones that was release to another country

      • Why not use them since they were they ones who were freed to commit their crimes again. Secondly the father and son, in my opinion, as this man willingly left his FOB putting other soldiers at risk, and which many lost their lives looking for his sorry ass. So please little one, tell me where I am wrong? Why would we give the top 5 al Qaeda operatives back for one man who went AWOL to the enemy willingly? Are you that stupid? Blind? or willfully ignorant?

      • how many lost their live looking for him, is that your opinion or fact, He is an American solider, whether you like him or not

      • Since Obama has been in office the left have been protecting his sorry ass, excusing scandal that has come up, most of which he himself claims to only just heard about it on the news.

      • the sorry ass is you a the weak Rethugans in congress, that lost the presidential election twice and will try to find anything to try to take down this president, funny thing is that whatever they have tried has FAILED..

      • He will be out, hopefully with impeachment, the liberals will lose power in both houses and this nation will become American again and you can sit and spin. 🙂

      • lol, Impeachment? go right ahead, please make my day. The Rethugans are so afraid to even try, the would be a bigger laughing stock then they are now, so please go right ahead..

  38. If there’s an upside to any of this, it’s that Hillary will have to answer for her party’s decisions here. Hagel and Obama will be gone; the freed Qitmo detainees will follow others who were released and went back to their jihad; Bowe Bergdahl’s brainwashing if any, his conversion to Islam if that occurred, it’s all wait and see. The Bergdahl family can practice what ever religion they want, pray in any language they want. The facts are that the US NEGOTIATED WITH TERRORISTS, a stunt I believe timed to show Obama cares about US troops when the VA scandal shows he does not. Hillary or whomever that party nominates will have to answer for this and a whole lot more!

  39. Do we really want this person here , spoke it to clearly .. Why did they not kill this man something is up … I hope I’m proven wrong … 2016 can’t get her fast enough .. I still remember the word of this president … I have a few things to do before I leave office I’m waiting to see Mumia Abu Jamal to be set free

  40. Trying to make the American people believehe said “I’m your father Bowe”, but then says “people of Afghanistan, the same”. What? he’s their father too? This stinks to high heaven and so does our pResident.

    • It’s because we don’t understand what he really said. .. he didn’t translate what he said in Arabic he just kept talking. ..

  41. Personally, I do not like how Obama lauded Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl as a hero when we all know this soldier willingly left his post, risking the welfare of his comrades. He reminds me of those who enlist in the military just to get a paycheck then suddenly when on enemy territory, realizes he’s not cut out for battle. The people that SHOULD be honored are the likes of Edward Snowden, Gregory Hicks, Mark Thompson, Eric Nordstrom. Its a real shame when some Americans can so easily be mislead. I find it highly questionable that Bergdahl is the ONLY soldier, I recall, who was captured and DID NOT get his head cut off for all the world to see. So let me get this straight…I should feel sorry for this jerk who walked away to now think of him highly?? This soldier did nothing special in my eyes. It is further my opinion that he was brought back to the states for Obama to use for 2 purposes….to get people to believe that the Taliban and terrorist Muslims as a whole are truly not bad, and (2) if Obama did something “noteworthy”, maybe his ratings and the Democrat party’s rating will increase. Don’t you find it highly suspicious that NOW, with elections looming, that he has done this “significant” action when this jerk was “held hostage” for the past 5 years?? Oh! And what a distraction from the woman who recently gave birth in prison, sentenced to death for being a Christian and whose husband cannot even have his children. Where is Obama’s influence on this matter? Why doesn’t Obama HELP those who are CHRISTIANS?? I bet some of Obama’s cabinet members know how valuable those released terrorists are. And whether Bergdahl is guilty or not of being a deserter (I shouldn’t prejudge), he has not reached any sort of level to make me sit up in my chair and say…WOW! This guy did something great for this country, he’s a hero! What an honor!

    • Bergdahl and his father ARE MUSLIMS! What would you expect 0bama to do? After all, they’re 0bama’s “dudes.”

  42. Apparently Mr.President was unable to find a tie to wear..The class of this office has never been lower with the Obama’s in power.There was a time when the POTUS had a certain standard to keep when ever he was in the public let alone the worlds eye.

  43. Wow! The Human race is just sick. Reading these comments actually make
    me laugh, with the exception of a few positive ones. It’s no wonder the
    country is gone to hell. First off, those were NOT his first words. I
    love how so many people act like they were there! It’s a family who is
    beyond happy. If that were my son, I’d want them to trade anyone and
    everyone. It’s so easy to judge when it’s not you. Grow up and become
    human, a GOOD human being. Take some lessons from dogs, they show
    nothing but love. Most of you make me ashamed to be an American, and
    it’s a sad day for ME to say that. We are suppose to be BETTER, most of
    you are no better. Judging someone by a beard??? Really??? Let me see
    your picture, and you better look EXACTLY the way I THINK you should or
    I’ll accuse you of being, well, what ever the hell I want I guess. I
    pray you don’t have kids! ” Son, anyone with a long beard is a
    terrorist”. I’m guessing you are still young though. I believe in God, I
    GUARANTEE NOT the same God anyone else does though. I LOVE that I can
    have my OWN belief! I don’t care what any of you believe in, ya know
    why? It’s non of my business. I’m spiritual not religious. Ut OH, I must
    be evil. Well, if you all are Religious and not Spiritual then you must
    be evil. My God when will people get off their high horses and realize
    that my judging them, you ARE them! (who ever your “them” is). Be
    Better! Lead by example not by following. That’s all you’re doing.

      • So you are OK with his father tweeting that he won’t rest until ALL GITMO detainees are released? You don’t find that a bit off? You are not concerned that the POTUS, against our “No Negotiating with Terrorists” policy, traded a guy who deserted his post for 5 high level Taliban leaders? Or you really that hooked on rainbows and unicorn farts to see what just happened?

    • Look Dayna, I’m sure you are a lovely person, but you are also naïve to the world we exist in today. Your kind of thinking on acceptance and “love” of all, even when their own religion calls for your death, only shows you lack of real world exposure. You are fortunate (very fortunate) to live in a country that allows you to practice your faith in any way that you like. However, your freedom to do so is being threatened. My question to you is this, What would cause you to defend your way of life? Or are you simply willing to lay down and die at the hands of another, to avoid conflict?

    • You really are a piece of work… and quite oblivious to the world around you. Did you know that Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post and posted anti-American gibberish to his social media? We traded 5 RUTHLESS terrorists for this traitor. Rest assured that these 5 terrorists are almost guaranteed to kill again and the blood will be on this administrations hands as well as the delusional people that support it.

    • When they come for you and beat you for your funky hair style and stone you for your purported sins of the flesh you let me know if you are still going to be so tolerant. Just google Sharia Law and then tell me who is intolerant.

    • I would also add, how do you think the parents of the soldiers that died trying to capture those 5 terrorist feel about their release. This person walked away from their duty and essentially surrendered himself to the Taliban. In other words, he gave up his freedom. Now his “release” is traded for 5 terrorist responsible for multiple deaths. Which is more important to you? The justice of the dead or the life of someone who willingly gave up his freedom?

    • This soldier was AWOL and 5 American soldiers were killed searching for him…to make a switch for 5 know terrorists is reprehensible. What about the Marine that is sitting in a Mexican cell right now?? What is this administration doing for him?

    • You are correct about a lot of these comments. They are plainly ignorant. But forget anything related to Allah or all of that. Here is where we need to focus: this soldier allegedly deserted his post. He was captured by the Taliban. American soldiers lost their lives searching for him. And to top it off, now 5 high-level Taliban officers are free in exchange. I’m not saying that he should have been left to rot. But the US has had a policy of never negotiating with terrorists. EVER. It has now put the US in a vulnerable position. If gives the Taliban a new reason to attempt to combat US troops and attempt to take prisoners. It has also almost ensured that the soldiers that died while searching for him died in vane.

      I couldn’t care less about the religious aspect of this. What I see is an exchange that has possibly violated a number of US policies. I’m not calling for President Obama’s head. I’m calling for an explanation of why this happened the way it did.

    • So translate for us then.That you have your own god means trouble for you. What is his name? There are thousands of gods,but what can he do for you? There is only one redeemer and that is Jesus Christ. He is the only one who died for humanity.No other god can claim this as fact.Believe as you will for you were given a free will to make your own choices ,to follow whatever you wish. Now with that being said, I will also state as a believer it is my business to inform everyone of the only way to salvation and that is by repenting of your sins and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and savior. If you deny Christ he will deny you to our heavenly Father,our creator. I suggest you read the Living Word of God,make your decision after you make the comparisons to whatever you are being taught. Your god can do nothing for you, only Jesus Christ can and will.That you didn’t mention your gods name says you are ashamed of it. Think about it,your soul is at stake. As for this “soldier” he will receive his justice ,if not here then when he dies……..

  44. In the Name of he Lord Jesus Christ, we claim this nation, it’s people, it’s buildings of leadership, and the sacred symbols of freedom, liberty and the principles of the founding fathers, for the glory of the Almighty Father of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of the universe, the Creator of all things. We rebuke the nation of Islam and allah, the god of islam, we rebuke sharia law, the law of lawlessness and the principles of hate and intolerance it represents. We come aginst the evil Muslims bring in the wake of their jihad against Christians, Jews, et. al., in the name of their false god, allah. In the Name of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, we claim this….
    ,

  45. NOTHING this White House does shocks me anymore and since he bypasses Congress anymore to enforce his will , perhaps the people should bypass them to try him for TREASON

    • Will they tighten up the laws before they leave office so the same tactics they used doesn’t get used against them? This will be interesting to see in the near future.

  46. HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN? I GUESS SO…

    AWOL Jihad Traitor for Taliban Terrorists: Mullah Omar Rejoices, Prisoner Swap “Big Victory” for Global Jihad, Obama promises more concessions
    Afghanistan

    Here’s more on the treasonous terror deal I wrote about here: “AWOL Traitor Traded for Taliban Terrorists: “In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful,’’ AWOL soldier’s dad said in Arabic.”

    Anyone in the Obama administration that cops out to “we don’t leave anyone behind” as the reason why they traded an AWOL traitor for five GITMO Taliban leaders is lying. The Obama administration abandoned our people in Benghazi — heroes and patriots — when they needed us most.

    Obama’s contempt for our troops is nothing new. Taliban insider attacks spiked to unseen levels under Obama as he continued to sanction and reward the Taliban. Obama’s rules of engagement in Afghanistan was an invitation to murder — it was open season on US soldiers. The Washington Times recently reported that “the number of U.S. battlefield fatalities exceeded the rate at which troop strength surged in 2009 and 2010, prompting national security analysts to assert that coinciding stricter rules of engagement led to more deaths.”

    Obama’s reception at West Point was icy for good reason.

    Obama has been a Taliban supporter for some time now — despite the slaughter, the insider attacks, the destruction of schools, the attacks on girls, etc. He strong-armed President Karzai into partnering with them. He supports the Taliban. He insisted that Karzai share power with the Taliban. He insisted that NATO recognize the Taliban.
    Karzai has said that the Obama Administration actually told him that the Taliban, which provided al Qaeda its base of support for September 11, was not an enemy of the U.S.

    in 2012, Barack Hussein Obama used the NATO summit to press Afghan leader Hamid Karzai to engage with greater urgency with the Taliban about a political settlement in Afghanistan. Obama stalked and chased these jihadist murderers. Obama demanded that Afghanistan be designated a “major non-NATO ally.” The non-NATO ally declaration allowed for streamlined defense cooperation, more money, expedited purchasing ability of American equipment, and easier export control regulations.

    Mullah Omar, long known to be in Afghanistan is one of the word’s most wanted terrorists. He is the leader of the Taliban and is wanted by the U.S. State Department since October 2001. There’s a ten million dollar reward on his head. He sheltered Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda killers in the years prior to the September 11 attacks. He had a hand in the 911 attacks, and directed the Taliban’s ongoing war against the U.S.-led NATO forces and the government of Afghanistan.

    Obama negotiated this “trade” as a cover to release these jihad killers. Many called the AWOL convert to Islam, Abdullah Bergdahl, a traitor or a deserter. Company Commander at Fort Bragg, Stephen Kirouac, called Bergdahl a “dirtbag” and “sympathizer.” And it’s not just that, the soldier, who has converted to Islam, is alleged to have been teaching its fighters bomb-making skills. Bergdahl’s father praised Allah when the announcement of the trade was made. His father wants to see all the GITMO terrorists released.

    Two Republican lawmakers said President Barack Obama violated U.S. laws when he approved the exchange of an American soldier believed held by Islamist insurgents for five years for five Afghan detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
    Congressman Howard “Buck” McKeon of California and Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma said Saturday in a statement that Obama is required by law to notify Congress 30 days before any transfer of terrorists from the U.S. detention facility.

    So what are they going to do about it? Continue to sit by while Obama wages war against us?
    YES.

    • Well now, Allah is not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Allah is the muzzie moon god. Do some research. God has room for forgiveness….Allah does not. Think about it.

      • No you’re an idiot. If you say God in Arabic, you have to say Allah otherwise you’re mixing english and Arabic. Secondarily, stop thinking christians have a monopoly on the word God.

      • Oh please, get a grip on reality. Allah is the muzzie moon god. It is well documented. I have a copy of their Koran and it is nothing but trouble from page one. You keep believing they are nice people. I’ll be sure your head get buried with your body. Oh, and the only idiot I see (or hear) is you, Theo Hunt. Apparently you know nothing of the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. More leftist talking points that pure nonsense. Thanks for trying and have a nice day.

      • I apologize if I sounded angry. I am not. I do however have a copy of their Koran and there is no place in it for forgiveness. You make a mistake, lose your hand. Be an infidel, lose your head. Religion of peace by foot…..not even by a mile or any mileage that I can come up with. Just saying.

    • your point??? obviously it is as specific as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost is to other specific faiths. quit trying to be obtuse you just look stupid!

    • Wrong! Al-Lah is the Arabic words for THE GOD. The reason they say that, is that Allah, was the favorite god of U’bul Kassim’s (Mohammed) Arabian Tribe, the Quraish. The Quraish Tribe had a different god for everyday. Allah, the MOON gOD was their favorite. Allah, is NOT the same Eternal God that Christians and Jews worship. The Muslims would like you to believe that, but it’s FALSE.

      • Yes… Because I would bother reading something in a language whose primary accomplishment is goat bestiality porn and suicide bombers.

      • Ad Hominem because I proved your point incorrect. You know you’re wrong, and your pathetic little ego couldn’t handle it. Arabic used to be the language of scholars, mathematicians, historians, and scientists centuries ago. It has accomplished a lot. Characterizing people by a language though is immature and useless.

      • And calling people dumb because they don’t support your opinion is a sign of low intelligence, like Obama.

      • The languages of that time that “accomplished allot” where Aramaic and Greek……but those that spoke Aramaic and Greek back then who accomplished so much where not Muslim. And not all Scholars, mathematicians ect even spoke those languages, the ones who attributed the most spoke Greek and Latin like Thales of Miletus. The Golden age of Islam lasted maybe 200 years in which very few advancements where made in comparison to other Golden ages of different cultures. Since 1200 A.D.give or take a few years they have accomplished nothing and still behave as they did back in the dark ages.

      • FYI: Aramaic is not the same as the Arabic language. That in and of itself shows your ignorance.

      • Your both wrong. Allah is the Arabic word for God used by the Coptic Christians prior to Islam or Muhammad. However, Army Aviator is correct in that The Biblical God is NOT the same as the Qua’ranic God. You should read the Bible and then the Quaran…….. To defend an religouse cult political structure that violates all human rights known to man and then still compare it to Christianity as thought they are the same is moranic and shows the lack of inteligiance on your behalf.

      • Allah equals God. I am for freedom of religion. It is no more right for a Christian to hold a gun to a head wanting someone to denounce their God than it is for other religions to do so to Christians.

  47. Disgraceful that we traded five Taliban terrorists for one SOB… he’s not a POW, but a deserter who should be prosecuted

    • Nona–Remember Nixon was responsible for breaking in the Democrat’s offices. Really serious. We did not fire him he resigned to avoid impeachment.

      • not entirely true. History check. The Articles of Impeachment were already drawn up and approved by the House Judiciary Committee
        on Tuesday, July 30, 1974. Nixon, had enough honor which we fail to see in our leaders today, to save the time, money, and inevitable conflicts and resigned. Since then, we’ve had one President outright lie to America…get impeached by one house, but get through the Senate….so Clinton stayed in. Our current POTUS has no honor…and will ride wave until he destroys everything he’s hated about America ever since he was raised in countries that also hate America. History check.

      • Not accurate Wilfred. He was responsible for covering up the affiliation between the burglars and his re-election campaign (in other words his Administration). No evidence that Nixon knew about the plan or the burglary itself until months later.

        As for Nona, we all (except the islamic-loving trolls here) share your pain. But, Oboyma will never be fired, impeached or otherwise tossed from office. He will be the lamest of lame ducks for the next two years. Unfortunately, we will be saddled with yet another globalist, statist, tyrant from here until the country goes to her knees — and it won’t matter which of the two decrepit parties occupies the WH.

  48. This is total BS to speak to his son in Arabic!!!! I have been in USA for 8 years now and I never forgot my native language “French” even if I never use it….. that was just a slap in the face of Americans… the dad and the son and Obama…. traitors to this country.

    • Thank you for speaking sane truth. It is ridiculous to say Bergdahl might have forgotten his native language.

  49. One deserter exchanged for five full blown terrorists, what’s wrong with this picture.? Is it ineptness or something much, much worse?

  50. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen such a collection of misinformed, racist, vitriolic, uneducated, and wholly despicable posts in one place before. First off, the phrase he spoke in Arabic referred to God, not just Allah, but God; Allah is the word for God in arabic. Secondarily, even if he were to praise the Islamic God, this is a country with the ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE and a principle of religious freedom. Christianity is no more moral than Islam, nor any other religion, stop acting like it’s the pinnacle of human achievement. Lastly, he was a deserter, but don’t you think being held POW with the Taliban is much more of a punishment than going through the United States’ judicial system?

    The hate you’ve expressed towards his family, him, and Obama are regurgitated opinions you’ve had incestually perpetuated by fringe news sources. It’s disgusting and unproductive. Spewing these horrible opinions online where you’re protected behind a computer is cowardly. I’d love for somebody to prove me wrong though.

    • Thank you for being the most sensible person on this comment thread. No one here will listen to you, unfortunately, because they are too busy acting out the hate and intolerance that they preach against.

      • Really? In what way? I’m curious about the ‘once great’ country you speak of. The one where the original settlers killed the natives? Or how about 150 years ago, that pesky old Civil war? How many presidents were assassinated prior to the last 50 years? And how many since? What about that whole thing where black people were slaves and then as a show of good faith, we decided to free them only to rape, abuse and humiliate them for another 100 or so years? No, surely you’re talking about those magical 40’s and 50’s – the I Love Lucy era that everyone *loves* to envision and forgets that anyone who was not a white man was treated terribly. I could go on about gay-bashing, LSD use, and probably hundreds of other things. So again, I question, in what way has this country become *more* of a shithole than it was? Perhaps like most of us, you haven’t really been around long enough to have ‘seen it all’.

        *Note: I am not saying America isn’t a great country, I love my country and feel blessed to be here everyday, so that wasn’t my point at all.

      • JenJen U Nut….your historical data is skewed to your views. Let’s turn our focus on modern day slavery. Do you stand up against Africa on that? Let’s talk about those that stood up and fought against slavery here in this country and lost their lives…do you have anyone that lost their lives for the rights of others? Or did you and your family just ride the “fun wave”? Do you do anything about the slaughter, rape, mutilation of genitalia, of women in peaceful Islam countries or in Africa? Or do you just preach about the past? What are you doing today to help anything? Did you serve on a mission to Africa? Maybe help the forgotten AIDS victims scattered all over Africa by giving 1 year of your life? Let’s look at the quality of life in the 13 colonies to what you know as the U.S today for blacks then…and blacks now…but let’s compare it to where they were. You are probably lost. Let me enlighten your narrow mind….Did you know who enslaved the natives of Africa? Africans. Do you know who sold those people to the slave traders? Africans. They were the black africans…not the white south african ones. Do you know how many Americans bought Africans in Africa? 0. Do you know who started the trade to the 13 colonies? Let me give you one answer: Not Americans. Do you know where they still have slaves? Let me help you out….Not America….maybe Africa, do some research. While slavery was not something to “brag” about, those that were enslaved were sparred from death. The tribes of Africa enslaved the weak tribes and sold them. Do you think they let the other “weaker” people walk away? Your narrow mind says yes. They were killed. The horrible conditions in more than 90% of Africa was worse in the 16-1900s…so while conditions weren’t “ideal” for the slaves or after the civil war for the blacks….they were much better than they were and are today from their original origins. The Africans that are in power now in their “made up governments” who live lavishly were more than likely the original and current slave owners. So while you think you know, you have no clue.

      • TL; DR. Your point was only marginally tangential to *one* of the things I mentioned about *this* country’s past (because I’m not talking about Africa, because it wasn’t part of the original commenter’s argument).

      • Your rant sounds vaguely familiar… oh wait – I remember!

        “For the First Time in My Adult Lifetime, I’m Really Proud of My Country”

        Michelle Obama:
        02/18/2008.

      • In what way? The civil rights movement? Or the recent spree of gay marriage wins?

        I’m no super lefty, I think political correctness HAS gone too far in some places, but tolerance is not a bad thing.

      • Tolerance can be exceedingly fruitful and mutually beneficial. It can also kill. Tolerance, Theo, is sometimes a deadly and dirty word. Depends!

      • My favorite bumper sticker reads “Peace Had A Chance”

        Seriously though, the word “tolerance” has lost its luster because those of us who don’t agree with the screeching left are deemed INtolerant merely because we don’t fall in line (aka “evolve”). The self-dubbed tolerant left is actually the exact opposite — which is why we refuse any longer to play the PC game. That group (secular progressives) is the most intolerant and un-diverse group around — paying lip service to the very demands they impose on others. That is why tolerance died long ago.

      • Maybe you should read my post of what is written in their Holy Book Koran! if you dare!Then tell me how insensible we are!

      • Sensible? Honey,you got a problem.Acting out hate and intolerance? Did some one disagree with you again.?

      • Hey now Baby Cakes, those words are hurtful. Look, Toots, next time you feel like your youthfulness is a virtue, remember that we are all mortal and aging daily. I’m nearly 50 myself, but it wasn’t long ago that I had me some fine tail — like you, Sweetie! So, just be mindful Hot Stuff that people are people — wrinkles and all. 😉

      • Really? Please show me where I haver been hateful and intolerant unless I was attacked or spoke up against someone attacking another person? Please be so kind to show us your examples

      • And muslims would argue Islam does not condone that. Christians are liable to beat up and kill homosexuals, and catholics have repeatedly molested children. Should we still define the majority by the actions of the few?

        Don’t get me wrong, Islam is definitely a negative influence. But so is Christianity and most other modern religions.

      • Please let me know when an entire branch of Christianity condoned any of that… (Let’s keep it to the past century.)

      • Entire branch of Christianity? Westboro Baptist church? If you say that that’s not a valid example, it’s about the same size Al-Qaeda is to Islam. If not that, then the Catholic church (still refuses to allow condoms in countries that have prevalent AIDS rates, still condemns homosexuals, so on and so forth.

        There are countless examples. Even if Islam IS worse than Christianity, that does not mean Christianity isn’t wholly harmful.

      • Theo, please try to be at least remotely accurate with your statistics. The hateful cult known as Westboro BC is the equivalent to a gnat on a Rhino’s arse in contrast to the oversized influence that AQ has and is on Islam. One is isolated in a tiny outpost in Kansas. The other is firmly entrenched in every continent of the world. One has never actually killed anyone. The other has killed tens of thousands (and arguable millions if you count its precepts and edicts — aka fatwahs). I could go on and on to illustrate the contrast — but you’ve already stopped reading. Ha!

      • God condemns homosexuals,not people.What you want is for Christians to ignore God and obey you. Why don’t you walk on water then,change it to wine,then give me ac call.

      • The Westboro Baptist Church is a bunch of loons running around claiming to be Christian, but the Bible does not condone what they are preaching but in fact commands us to love everyone. As a matter of fact Jesus spoke saying that “not everyone saying Lord” will be saved as they are liars and imposters. True Christians do not condone such acts.

      • There’s been no hue and cry from “Greater” Islam over the tactics used by the Jihadists. Now I suppose you’re going to invoke a new vocabulary for what it means to be a Jihadist.

      • The way I look at it, it doesn’t matter what religion you have or support, 99 percent of everybody in this world is going to hell.

      • Any one who beats up and kills a homo is not a Christian except to people like you who is suffering from Christphobla.

      • Christianity does not condone it either and speaks out against it specifically. Where does the Qu’ran speak out against the murder of innocent people for their beliefs? Where does it command to love everyone?

    • OK, you’ve made the point that God is Allah is God in your opinion. So be it. What is your excuse for his tweet about freeing the remaining prisoners at Gitmo, and that God will “repay” us for “every Afghan child”?

      • I’m not going to doubt that that tweet is a bit odd. I understand wanting to shut down Guantanamo because there’s a constitutional and political belief behind that that’s logical, the other part is a bit harder to comprehend.

        Perhaps he was willing to say anything to convince his son’s captors to release him? I’d need more info before I speak conclusively.

    • Right on. I couldn’t say it better myself. Religion, period, is the problem here. Who cares what language it’s in. Justifying violence and hatred through imaginary deities and irrationality is poisoning our world.

      • Then go protest at your local mosque you coward!! You only denigrate christians. You are too afraid to do the same to muslims. My proof? You’re still alive and typing this “all religion is evil” claptrap

      • I’m entirely in your corner with the proposition that every organized religion has warts and has killed in its name. My point is that you cowardly secular progressives NEVER, EVER protest islam because you love life more than you believe in your mouthy statements. If you truly wanted to make a difference and give meaningful voice to your belief, the first, second, third, etc. location for your protest would be outside of a mosque. But you won’t go. Your conviction stops dead on a dime when faced with true blowback for your hollow opinions.

    • Although I am no fan of President Obama’s practices, I agree that the vile hate that is often spewed against him on blogs such as this is ignorant, misinformed and really just plain inane. But I do take issue with your comment about being held POW via the Taliban is much more punishment than the US judicial system. Would you feel the same way if your loved one was one of the soldiers that died searching for him? There is a lot of speculation that he is a traitor – or more correctly, a deserter. I guess that remains to be seen and who knows if he will asked to explain his actions. But if it is found that he charged with desertion, his years as POW should in no way replace his going to trial and paying for his crimes, should he be found guilty.

      • There is nothing “inane” about the hate for Obama. He has filled a container the size of Texas with reasons to despite, loathe and distrust him at every move, action and word. If you disagree with that, you’ve been asleep or, worse, in agreement.

      • Mike. If you read many comments about President Obama, they are often just one or 2 lines without much substance. It is my opinion that many people write the comments without really knowing anything about a specific reason for hating him. These are the same people that will make uniformed comments about a topic by just reading the headline on their facebook page instead of clicking on the link and actually reading the article.

        I am in no way defending President Obama. I did not vote for him and I do not agree with many of his policies. I am angered by this not so much because of what his father said but because this guy apparently deserted and caused other soldiers to die searching for him.

        Just because I don’t like when people throw out insults and hateful comments doesn’t mean I support the administration. I don’t support the culture of social media giving people the ability to write what they want without knowing what they are talking about and without fear repercussion.

      • Don, that was a very solid reply, so thank you. I agree with you. Too many “drive by” commentators these days. Be well.

      • I find it extremely interesting how you enlightened souls keep useing the words racist,bigot.spewing vile hatred to get people to agree with you.

      • Well, John – if you had decided to read past that you would see that my reply was taking to task a point made by Theo and that my stance is once against what has happened.

        If your idea of a rational argument is to throw out insults, rhetoric and other words tainted with hate, then that’s fine. But to me it reminds me of debating with a child more than with someone who has clear, thought out ideas. I’m not going to pretend I am smarter than anybody else or know more about this topic, but I’m not going to debate someone who throws out ignorant comments.

    • Unfortunately, Theo Hunt, it’s what you’re going to see on a site run for that disgusting cretin, West. The man is a failure at almost everything he’s done, and a disgrace to his uniform.

      Update: I just read some more of the posts from the so-called Christians on this site, and am giving up in disgust. These are the kinds of people who support animals like West and Palin. So be it.

      • I noted your “Update” refused my request. Predictable. I don’t need to defend West, but I’m interested why he’s a “disgrace to his uniform.” He rose far above the rank Bergdahl obtained, never abandoned his post, deserted, etc., but your hatred is laser focused against West. I would just like to know why. Waiting with breathless anticipation

      • You are a real A— HOLE. Col West was a real hero although a draft dodger like you would not be able to know the difference.

    • So is your remedy that we should all meet in public to hash this out? Islam doesn’t allow for that. You’re preachiness is very off putting as you think you know more than others. It’s not “hateful” to disagree. And I’d venture to say that our judicial system is much more judicious than that of the Taliban’s.

    • The God I worship is not Allah, does not support Sharia Law, or religion by force. Allah is NOT the God of Christianity, no matter what the Arabic bible says.

    • I could give a crap about your ‘racist’ name calling. It means nothing to me because it’s used as a pi$$ poor weapon to try to get people to ‘tolerate’ your evil.
      We’re on to that game as well as your others.

    • allah is the devil.. disguising himself as God.. of course it makes sense he would mention Christianity.. if you bother to read the quran and the Bible, you will notice an opposite take on how things end.. one is an ultimately pleasant ending the other results in calamity filled calamity which destroys everyone.. not to mention if you look at the two religions from the perspective of who is peaceful or not.. moslims are the terrorists.. Christians are not.. seriously, look at the numbers you you many more of one than the other and the point is it is a reflection of which faith actually worships God and which worships the devil disguised as God… highlighted, Christianity = peaceful, islam = violent, yes, there are exceptions on both sides, that is not the issue. Also, NO, being held POW in an Afghan village is not the same.. Afghan POWs are under lock and key inside a hut, not kept in a Vietnam style hot box. stop being so pretentious that you think you have all the answers and are the only clever person in the chat room

    • and your diatribe is as wrong as they who think they are the same.and FYI Islam hasn’t been a religion ever since Mohammed hijacked it and turned it into a geopolitical paramilitary cult.When was the last time you saw a Christian murder a muslim? or when have you witness the killings and raping of women and kidnapping 300 young girls.Have you ever witnessed a Christian behead anyone then proceed to play soccer with their disembodied head screaming allah akbar.Don’t try and tell me that islam is more moral than Christianity.And the facts that you seem to think he was punished while he was a so called prisoner you should watch some of the things he said on videos he was a part of,and all you have to do is research how many terrorists acts they have committed against non military targets.Once again we are talking to someone who has never served his country but stayed home and reaped the privileges that they that stood in the gap for others and can sit back on their back side and rant and support something you seem to know very little about! That is if you can stand to read it in it’s entirety!

      And here’s the teachings straight from their holy book and tell me how moral they are :

      Proof that Islam is Evil, Violent, and Intolerant- Straight From the Koran

      IN UNCATEGORIZED / BY JAN MORGAN / ON MAY 13, 2014 AT 12:41 PM

      Islam..VERSES FROM THE QURAN.. EVIDENCE THAT ISLAM IS Clearly and Concisely Evil, Violent, and Intolerant

      Every time I write and article that sheds Islam in a negative light, my life gets threatened by muslims, I get hate messages from liberals, and I’m labeled a ‘racist’ by idiots who do not realize that Islam is not a race.
      Islam is also not a religion,
      It is a theocracy and terrorist cult that hides behind the mask of religion in order to acheive its mission of world domination.

      Furthermore, people, including news anchors who call islaic terrorists “extremists and radicals”, are wrong… They are DEVOUT muslims simply following the dictates of their koran.

      I have read the koran and studied it thoroughly. I have read the muslim brotherhood’s documented plan for the destruction of America from within.

      I will not submit or convert and I will not allow the death threats, the name calling, and the pack threat mentality stop me from telling the truth about Islam.

      Here it is folks… straight from their own so called holy book.. You read the verses below and you decide..
      Peaceful religion…??? NO WAY…

      Fact: in the 1400 year history of islam, muslims have murdered over 270 million people.
      Fact: Since 911, muslims have committed over 21 thousand deadly terror attacks around the world.
      Fact: Islam can not and will not peacefully co exist with any other religion on earth. Never.
      Fact: Where are all those so called “peaceful” muslims when the terror attacks occur? Why do they not stand publicly against the attacks as a religious group? The reason….. is in the verses below… It goes against their koran.

      The Quran:
      Quran (2:191-193) – “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]… but if desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”
      There is a good case to be made that the textual context of this particular passage is defensive war, even if the historical context was not. However, there are also two worrisome pieces to this verse. The first is that the killing of others is authorized in the event of “persecution” (a qualification that is ambiguous at best). The second is that fighting may persist until “religion is for Allah.” The example set by Muhammad is not reassuring.

      Quran (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

      Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding caravans with this verse.

      Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

      Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).

      Quran (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.” The martyrs of Islam are unlike the early Christians, led meekly to the slaughter. These Muslims are killed in battle, as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the cause of Allah. Here is the theological basis for today’s suicide bombers.

      Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

      Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

      Quran (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-” This passage criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah’s eyes. It also demolishes the modern myth that “Jihad” doesn’t mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle. Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption. (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man’s protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).

      Quran (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…” Is pursuing an injured and retreating enemy really an act of self-defense?

      Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

      Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.

      Quran (8:15) – “O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey’s end.”

      Quran (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah” From the historical context we know that the “persecution” spoken of here was simply the refusal by the Meccans to allow Muhammad to enter their city and perform the Haj. Other Muslims were able to travel there, just not as an armed group, since Muhammad declared war on Mecca prior to his eviction. The Meccans were also acting in defense of their religion, since it was Muhammad’s intention to destroy their idols and establish Islam by force (which he later did). Hence the critical part of this verse is to fight until “religion is only for Allah.” According to Ibn Ishaq (324), Muhammad justified the violence further by explaining that “Allah must have no rivals.”

      Quran (8:57) – “If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.”

      Quran (8:59-60) – “And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah’s Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape. Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy.”

      Quran (8:65) – “O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight…”

      Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” According to this verse, the best way of staying safe from Muslim violence is to convert to Islam. Prayer (salat) and the poor tax (zakat) are among the religions Five Pillars.

      Quran (9:14) – “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace…”

      Quran (9:20) – “Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah’s way are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight. These are they who are triumphant.” The “striving” spoken of here is Jihad.

      Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” “People of the Book” refers to Christians and Jews. This was one of the final “revelations” from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military expansion, in which Muhammad’s companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the Christian world in just the next 100 years. Islam is intended to dominate all other people and faiths.
      Quran (9:30) – “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

      Quran (9:38-39) – “O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.” This is a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.

      Quran (9:41) – “Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew.” See also the verse that follows (9:42) – “If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them” This contradicts the myth that Muslims are to fight only in self-defense, since the wording implies that battle will be waged a long distance from home (in another country and on Christian soil, in this case, according to the historians).
      Quran (9:73) – “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.” Dehumanizing those who reject Islam, by reminding Muslims that they are merely firewood for Hell, makes it easier to justify slaughter. It also explains why today’s devout Muslims have little regard for those outside the faith.

      Quran (9:88) – “But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper.”
      Quran (9:111) – “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.”

      Quran (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”

      Quran (18:65-81) – This parable lays the theological groundwork for honor killings, in which a family member is murdered because they brought shame to the family, either through apostasy or perceived moral indiscretion. The story, which is not found in any Jewish or Christian source, tells of Moses encountering a man with “special knowledge” who does things which don’t seem to make sense on the surface, but are then justified according to later explanation. One such action is to murder a youth for no apparent reason (74). However, the wise man later explains that it was feared that the boy would “grieve” his parents by “disobedience and ingratitude.” He was killed so that Allah could provide them a ‘better’ son.

      Quran (21:44) – “We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?”

      Quran (25:52) – “Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness…” “Strive against” is Jihad – obviously not in the personal context. It’s also significant to point out that this is a Meccan verse.

      Quran (33:60-62) – “If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while. Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.” This passage sanctions the slaughter (rendered “merciless” and “horrible murder” in other translations) against three groups: Hypocrites (Muslims who refuse to “fight in the way of Allah” (3:167) and hence don’t act as Muslims should), those with “diseased hearts” (which include Jews and Christians 5:51-52), and “alarmists” or “agitators who include those who merely speak out against Islam, according to Muhammad’s biographers. It is worth noting that the victims are to be sought out by Muslims, which is what today’s terrorists do. If this passage is meant merely to apply to the city of Medina, then it is unclear why it is included in Allah’s eternal word to Muslim generations.

      Quran (47:3-4) – “Those who reject Allah follow vanities, while those who believe follow the truth from their lord. Thus does Allah set forth form men their lessons by similtudes. Therefore when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners,” Those who reject Allah are to be subdued in battle. The verse goes on to say the only reason Allah doesn’t do the dirty work himself is in order to to test the faithfulness of Muslims. Those who kill pass the test. “But if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.”

      Quran (47:35) – “Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost (Shakir: “have the upper hand”) for Allah is with you,” This very important verse asserts that the Religion of Peace is not to grant peace to the broader society until Islamic rule has been established.

      Quran (48:17) – “There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom.” Contemporary apologists sometimes claim that Jihad means ‘spiritual struggle.’ Is so, then why are the blind, lame and sick exempted?

      Quran (48:29) – “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves” Islam is not about treating everyone equally. There are two very distinct standards that are applied based on religious status.

      Quran (61:4) – “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way” Religion of Peace, indeed! This is followed by (61:9): “He it is who has sent His Messenger (Mohammed) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam) to make it victorious over all religions even though the infidels may resist.”

      Quran (61:10-12) – “O ye who believe! Shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Penalty?- That ye believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that ye strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah, with your property and your persons: That will be best for you, if ye but knew! He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Gardens of Eternity.” This verse was given in battle. It uses the Arabic word, Jihad.

      Quran (66:9) – “O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.” The root word of “Jihad” is used again here. The context is clearly holy war, and the scope of violence is broadened to include “hypocrites” – those who call themselves Muslims but do not act as such.
      From the Hadith:

      Bukhari (52:177) – Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

      Bukhari (52:256) – The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).” In this command, Muhammad establishes that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. This provides justification for the many Islamic terror bombings.

      Bukhari (52:220) – Allah’s Apostle said… ‘I have been made victorious with terror’

      Abu Dawud (14:2526) – The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist)

      Abu Dawud (14:2527) – The Prophet said: Striving in the path of Allah (jihad) is incumbent on you along with every ruler, whether he is pious or impious

      Muslim (1:33) – the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah

      Bukhari (8:387) – Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah

      Muslim (1:149) – “Abu Dharr reported: I said: Messenger of Allah, which of the deeds is the best? He (the Holy Prophet) replied: Belief in Allah and Jihad in His cause…”

      Muslim (20:4645) – “…He (the Messenger of Allah) did that and said: There is another act which elevates the position of a man in Paradise to a grade one hundred (higher), and the elevation between one grade and the other is equal to the height of the heaven from the earth. He (Abu Sa’id) said: What is that act? He replied: Jihad in the way of Allah! Jihad in the way of Allah!”

      Muslim (20:4696) – “the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: ‘One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihid died the death of a hypocrite.’”

      Muslim (19:4321-4323) – Three separate hadith in which Muhammad shrugs over the news that innocent children were killed in a raid by his men against unbelievers. His response: “They are of them (meaning the enemy).”

      Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.” Ashraf was a poet, killed by Muhammad’s men because he insulted Islam. Here, Muhammad widens the scope of his orders to kill. An innocent Jewish businessman was then slain by his Muslim partner, merely for being non-Muslim.

      Tabari 9:69 “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.

      Ibn Ishaq: 327 – “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

      Ibn Ishaq: 990 – Lest anyone think that cutting off someone’s head while screaming ‘Allah Akbar!’ is a modern custom, here is an account of that very practice under Muhammad, who seems 4to approve.

      Ibn Ishaq: 992 – “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.” Muhammad’s instructions to his men prior to a military raid.

    • Incorrect. Do your research. Allah is not a name for God. Allah is the Muslim god, but it is not in reference to all gods anywhere.

      • And Mohammed was an illiterate hold up in a cave freakin’ out as “his” God told him to go arm the people to make them submit to him. Who gives a damn who’s God Islam claims?

      • Allah is a derivitive of the moon goddes, and a direct spin off of Balal, STUPID. Do your own indwpendent research and find out for yourself, not what OTHERS tell you to believe, stupid. And quit calling people stupid, stupid. It makes you look… well, STUPID, stupid.

      • Calling people “idiot” is a great way to win hearts and minds 😉 (Might I recommend Matthew 5:22?)

      • If “Allah” means “God,” why have Islamic authorities disallowed Christians in Muslim countries from referring to their god as “Allah?” (This is a sincere question, BTW).

    • Our God has a name and their god has one and they are as different as night and day,When they kill Christians they scream Allah akbar,when Major Hassd killed the 20 plus unarmed people and a unborn baby they screamed Allah akbar.and you wouldn’t make a pimple on Allen West back side.You speak as if you are as blind as those who think freeing a traitor /coward is some how acceptable for a soldier,which I have doubts that you are not now or have EVER served your country!and haven’t the right or credentials to past judgement on someone who has served with HONOR! Your lack of understanding the difference in the names that differentiate between the god who tells their followers to kill jews,Christians and infidels(who is anyone that is non muslim)and maim their children for stealing ,or Honor killings that they murder their families and spouses for the least of any infractions is a god that claims is merciful, tolerant of other religions ! Makes you either a muslim or just ignorant of any factual truth who is the true merciful and forgiving God.

    • Why are you insulting people? Are you incapable of making a point without calling other people stupid? Whatever you believe, however you express it, should always be done with respect.

    • What on earth does that have to do with muslim extremists being released without due process? Thanks for chiming in, Gary Abdullah.

    • Allah is NOT God! Muslim’s god does not recognize Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, as God’s One and Only Son, who was tortured and killed for our sins. That in itself tells us Allah is NOT God, the One and Only Father and Creator.

    • Allah is the Arabic word for God but not his personal name which is Yahweh. Allah could be any number of gods mentioned in the Holy Bible and the Holy Bible does not argue there are other gods, but namely refers to them as ‘false gods”. Jesus himself was referred to as a god but with the lower case g whereas the creator or Yahweh was always reference to as the only true God, the Alpha and Omega.

  51. Sometimes, military people are ordered into situations that civilians can never understand. I have no knowledge of Sgt. Bergdahl’s military career or his orders or whether he did this on his own like people are now saying. I am just glad he is now free. His recovery will be long.

  52. They shouldn’t speak that filthy pig latin crap in the White House! Why do we have to listen to this scumbag muslim tyrant that calls himself our leader.

    • Benedict Arnold was not a citizen of America. At the time there was no America as a nation. He was a British citizen that originally fought for the rebels and only switched sides because he felt unappreciated when he was passed over for promotion.

      • He fought on our side then sold out what’s the difference!We were all under British rule until then and were the first americans.I guess if you can sympathize with this traitor you can sympathize with with anyone even Benedict Arnold.

  53. No the saddest part is they are doing this to our country and we do nothing about it. Led to the slaughter without recognizing it until it’s to late.

  54. Allah is NOT the God the christians, and Jew’s, serve and worship; my God was clear on what he should be called, I am that I am, Alpha, Omega…but never Allah. We our to love our enemies, so I pray for muslims but we have a right to be concerned understanding why this man stood up and said what he said, that he meant to lay claim to our country.

    • ” I am that I am, Alpha, Omega”… um, you realize that was originally in Hebrew, and what you’re quoting is an English translation using Latin terms, right? Nowhere in the original scrolls that make up the Bible does it say God either… that’s an English word. In German it’s Gott. In Arabic it’s Allah.

    • Allah is the Arabic word for god, it does not, however, mean he was the almighty God (Allah) whose name in Hebrew is Yahweh.

  55. This is the stupidest thing I have ever read. what you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

  56. Reading the comments here, it’s no wonder so many people around the world hate America. Intolerance and hatred are the way to go, it seems. Before you shout your mouths off, I suggest you learn a little about Islam.

      • Because he, like most self professing Muslims, knows very little or nothing about the religion of death he is defending.

      • Then mind your own business when it comes to extremist muslim terrorism and the United States. You don’t know sh!t. And, stay where you are.

      • Odds are pretty goo that I know more anout islam than uou, having lived among muslims in Nigeria for quite a while and having read the koran. Islam still sucks. Evil to its core.

      • Then feel free to butt out of our politics, you ignorant twerp. Go back to your navel gazing so as to not disturb the adults… OK?

      • Peewee has better comebacks… want to give it another shot? You are just proving your ignorant trollness to the rest of us.

    • oh you mean the Islam that mutilates the genitals of women. The Islam that sentences homosexuals to death. The Islam that forces 9yr old girls into marriage. The Islam that murders its own in the Sunni vs Shia divide. The Islam the will use children to fight its wars. The Islam that makes use of suicide bombers to murder innocent women and children just because they are not followers of Islam. Yeah I know all I need

      • so what about the America that mutilates its males genitals?? oh that’s right since its good olde ‘murica its ok right??

      • I don’t hear of any “MAN” screaming in agony getting his rocks of from it, let alone thousands.

      • you mean the thousands of tiny babies screaming in pain and going into shock.. and the 117 that die yearly do not count?? seriously??

      • Right an average of 100 newborns die from complications from circumcision. out of how many that are born in a year, much less for the years over which they have been performing the procedure.. Not even 1 tenth of one percent. And it is vastly different from the deliberate intent to ruin a life as done my Islam.You are clutching to straw man arguments .seriously, no more of you. Least not for me.

      • so i guess it is totally ok for those 100 to die for a very unnecessary cosmetic surgery?? and no in now way am I implying what islam does its ok.. but neither is it ok what America does..

      • Its not cosmetic. I can site studies that it decreases HIV infections ins sub saharan africa. I can cite studies that it reduces the chance for males to carry the cancer causing strain of HPV. Studies to show it reduces the chance of carrying Syphilis,chancroid and genital herpes. Circumcision has a protective effect against the risks of penile cancer in men, and cervical cancer in the female sexual partners of heterosexual men. All of these studies are out there and some as recently as 2012, Also 1/3 of men worldwide are circumcised. Im not going to post more links. You ant the truth about circumcision you look those studies up. Some of which were conducted by the CDC.
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Global_Map_of_Male_Circumcision_Prevalence_at_Country_Level.png

      • you do know condoms do that too?? and yes it is cosmetic.. and also for curving hiv.. the US is one of the highest with HIV infection.. I have looked all those studies up.. again Europe and other countries are not using excuses to mutilate its children.. again keep making excuses for it.. Islam has nice excuses too..

      • right, but condoms are not readily available in many countries world wide. You are a dolt. and I am done with you. your bitch is about 100 males that die from complications from circumcision our of the 4 million babies born each year in the U.S. as your platform. GTFO with that BS

      • you do realize the majority of circumcised men in the world are Islamic right?? oh thats right lets hate on Islam but follow their lead when it comes to mutilating our children.. and I far from hate America.. it is my country but I do hate what America is becoming.. circumcision is a very new thing to America.. our founding fathers were all intact.. but thats right if we dont agree with you then we are haters.. grow up.. and you know what?? I would bitch about 1 child dying due to a very unnecessary surgery.. every life is worth fighting for..

      • How about an AMA or JAMA… sorry, but an out of country report seems a bit suspect on a supposed in country issue… especially when we record EVERYTHING. How about an NSA wiretap on the subject? 😉

      • who mutilates male genitals ? If you are referring to circumcision. You are misguided. First its not done to remove pleasure from sex . It is not forced upon males by any religion. It is done for hygiene reasons. And circumcision is done in other countries besides America.

      • very few other countries do it.. most if not all of Europe, Mexico and most of south america is intact.. it is to remove sexual pleasure do you know why circumcision became so big in America?? research Dr. Kellogs.. it was to curve the need to masturbate from young children.. there is not hygienic reason enough to mutilate a child.. it is mutilation.. just under a “pretty name”..

      • The Islam that sentences a pregnant mom to beheading because she is a Christian and won’t convert to Islam, or an imprisioned American pastor who won’t denounce Christ so he is beat and persecuted and of course Obama won’t lift a finger for either!

      • no worries good ole America will be there soon.. we already have cops beating young children at school, parents getting away with killing their innocent child.. yeah not long to go..

    • Islam is the one religion that goes around killing and terrorizing people in the name of their religion. No, not all of Muslims do it, but in this case, this guy is a deserter, and his father should not invoke Quran on the whitehouse steps.

      • Yes it is innocent of that in the past several hundred years. Islam is currently THE only religion killing people world wide.

      • when was the last killing done between christian and catholics BTW both are of the Judeo-Christian faith. How many Christians are blowing themselves up world wide ? Hmm quit playing semantics.YOu know what was meant

      • Catholics ARE Christians. Just like Shi’ites and Sunni’s are both Muslims. It is just a branch of Christianity.

        There have been deaths every single year up until 2010 thanks to The Troubles, killing Christians either side.

        You made a sweeping statement about how it is the only religion killing people, which is not true.

      • Catholics are Christian – just another branch, just as Sunni’s and Shi’ites are both Muslim.
        The last killing was last year – the records online are updated until 2010, and showing deaths.

      • Oh, and what about Israel?

        And of course Northern Ireland. There might be peace at the moment, but it could all start again.

      • What Christianity did that it does not now do. In comparison of what Islam has always done, Is not gerund anymore. Its not the Christians around the world killing. They did once upon a time. But that stopped many,many years ago. So yea Islam is the one religion currently killing people around the world.

      • Christians had the crusades and other events of that sort but they’ve evolved past barbarism and forced participation under threat of heinous atrocities and death. No Christian in the world subscribes to this mantra of exclusionary intolerant genocidal enforcement of their religion.

    • I had a hard time getting past their Prophet being a pedophile. When a man marries a 6-year old then consummates that marriage when she is ~9, what else do I need to know about the “faith?”
      That is the heart of Islam and all of its adherents believe and accept that. What should I think about people who would excuse such evil as holy?

    • How do you support your premise? CNN, MSNBC….Al Sharpton… MR O….
      We are “hated” you dolt becuase we stand for something…straight up.

      • Actually those who are Islamic probably do hate us because of our freedoms. Our women are too free to think for themselves as with everyone else. Can’t have the and be Islamic at the same time…

      • So why don’t they hate the Canadians, Australians, French, Germans, Dutch, Belgians, Swiss….. the list goes on of countries who have freedom but aren’t hated.

      • well once they kill off America who will save the rest of those countries you mentioned. What you think they will stop with us ? if you do, you are a naive moron. And lest you forget there has been terror attacks in Europe over the years.

      • Do you think they don’t? We are the last country to give in. England has given in by allowing Sharia law, not sure about Canada. But is it will known they do not like our values and wish to change us as they are doing one country at a time. Even in, I believe, Sweden, they have allowed sharia law… And fyi, these countries have been attacked by Islamic extremists. Just because its not in the news doesn’t meant its not happening.

      • There is no Sharia law in the UK. There is guidance for lawyers who are dealing with Muslims, but there have been no laws passed.

        They attack you because of your foreign policy. They don’t care what you do inside your own country.

      • As I said, this is just about giving guidance to lawyers when drawing up a will. These will still need to be tested in the courts. Just another misleading newspaper headline.

      • Its the beginning. You do know the story of the frog and the pot of boiling water? If not read it. The Brits are having trouble in many areas with Muslims forcing their sharia law on citizens, where they are condemning the women and claiming areas to be Muslim and follow Sharia Law. Open your eyes and do some research.

      • America is not perfect… however the concepts that brought this nation to being are improved vs what came before. It is only leftist dividing progs that detract from what America and Americans are capable of. As to Freedom.. we are loosing it more and more daily not just to Dems but to R’s as well because those are the power mongers and the Eliteists that feather thier vote boxes with promises of ease and $$ earned by the sweat of others all the time taking individual liberty by creating laws that that make the average man a criminal where he should be free.
        What is your perfect world THX 1138?

    • Ian, I know all I need to know. Too bad you weren’t in the World Trade Center on 9/11. Reality and truth do not equal hatred you buffoon. As for everyone hating Americans… they sure don’t seem to act that way when they need help or when they are looking for a place to run to. I suggest you learn a little. Period.

    • Only thing we need to know about anything connected to Islam is how to stop it. We don’t want it or those connected to it here.

      P.S. Big towel sale at Walmart so all you Muslim bastards can go get some new stuff to wrap around your frickin’ heads for $1.99.

    • Here’s a little tidbit that ought to get your butt in a nice tight little spasm.
      Ever heard of nanotechnology? It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if our guys didn’t inject a little tracking device during the last round of pecker inspections at Gitmo before the Obammy’s pukes were released. Just like ants with a sugar cube they’ll run right back to the nest.

  57. FACTS put out by his own unit
    He deserted , resulting in being captured by the Taliban
    Where are the accolades for the 6 service members of his unit who died looking for him??

  58. Obama traded 5 enemy prisoners for a traitor? It was so urgent that he broke the 30 day notice to Congress law?

    • I challenge any one of you who label him a traitor to spend 5 years in
      captivity with the Taliban or Haqqani, then come back and accuse him
      again. Whatever his intent when he walked away or was captured, he has
      more than paid for it.

      • Really? And why are you so sure he isn’t a traitor? If he IS a traitor the Taliban aren’t going to hurt him so spending 5 years with them in order to attain their goal would be a walk in the park. And since he’s been with them for 5 years, why did Obama bypass the law of waiting 30 days and go ahead and negotiate for his release? What’s 30 more days? Why the sudden rush?

      • He needs to pay for the men or got killed looking for the stupid bastard Traitor, They should have just let him go. Jackass, but he is NO H ERO

    • Ron, Thanks you said it all. I wish America would wake up, but untill it comes and bites them in the ass..He is a traitor and so is Obama, He was not in prison, he was well taken care of. Daddy had it all covered.

  59. For being such a devout Christian, Obama doesn’t seem to have any issue with letting a blessing from the Qur’ an put a heartwarming smile across his face.

    The reason this bearded traitor made is statement in Arabic is so “stupid Americans” wouldn’t understand it ( or even care to find out what he said – INCLUDING THE MEDIA ), he knew it would mean something special to Obama, and more importantly, he knew what it would mean to the Islamist terrorists around the globe.

    Here’s a question for the President – If we don’t leave any of our boys behind; please explain Benghazi.

    • Exactly. I was wondering how he managed to keep a straight face when making his speech about rescuing Bergdahl. Does he think we are all stupid or does he think we have very, very short memories? I, for one, will never forget Benghazi. Someone needs to fry for that and I’m hoping it’s Obama.

    • It’s ignorant fundamentalist people like you in America that absolutely disgrace what our nation stands for. You honestly think your being patriotic with your intolerance and insensitivity?

      “Bismillah al rahman al rahim” = “In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate”.

      I don’t agree with the actions Bergdahl took walking off his OP and putting lives in danger to recover him, but don’t understand how his father saying something that nearly every chapter(but one) in the Qur’an starts with being distasteful for anyone but ignorant Americans that are only in touch with whatever Religion was put infront of them at birth.

      • First – I’m agnostic – NOT FUNDAMENTALIST! So, your assumption that my opinion is based on religion is incorrect and illustrates just how ignorant YOU are.

        Second – words matter – especially when being said AT THE WHITE HOUSE with the President of the United States standing right behind you. I don’t have issue with his faith, more power to him – what I have issue with is what he said & where he said it.

        Furthermore – Whenever a muslim utters this phrase, they are not just talking about a god, they are referencing Allah – the one and only GOD – and according to the Qur’ an, anyone who DOES NOT BELIEVE ( infidels ) should be beheaded / killed:

        “When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds, then set them free, either by grace or ransom, until the war lays down its burdens”. – Qur’ an 47:4

        Am I intolerant of people who still live in the stone age using the verses of the Qur’ as a motivation to wage war on everyone else on the planet? You bet your ass I am. If that hurts your sensitivities, so be it.

        Lastly – YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS DO NOT TRUMP MY RIGHTS AS A HUMAN BEING!

      • It’s ignorant fundamentalist people like you in America that absolutely disgrace what our nation stands for. You honestly think your being patriotic with your intolerance and insensitivity? lmao Stick to nascar and leave your ignorance out of politics please.

      • Go back to supporting the KKK, Jim Crow laws. That is and what progressives liberals do. They support hate groups. Now it is islam. There is sunshine outside that dark hole you have your head in.

      • And you are so tolerant? Don’t sit up on your high horse as you spew your intolerance of other people on here! Hypocritical much?

  60. Ian, intolerance and hatred are pretty much the code of Islam, granted there are many who do not profess to be the militant Islamist but there are many, many more that are. So in saying that what I know about Islam is that thousands were killed in its cause on 9-11, hundreds more daily by suicide bombers or other attacks, dehuminizing acts against those who chose another path, say something contrary to it or even to deny it it will mean your death. Ian, we all pretty much know about it, it is you who does not.

    • And most of the ones not committing jihad is simply because at the moment, they are not surrounded by other muslims…The peaceful ones who are still practicing Islam…are probably the only ones who are by themselves at the moment…Once they have a group of them around them..they will practice their “religion” as it says in their demon book!

      • you are such a reared that have no idea what islam is i dear you to bring one word in Qur’an that refer to sword or killing

        VS look at the bible and check Luck 19/27 were Jesus called for killing and the word sword was mentioned in Quraan 0 times while in bible was mentioned more than 500 times check 19/23

        i have prove by chapter what you got

        I’m not saying Christianity is bad I’m saying don’t start throwing rocks

  61. This article is very misleading. “Allah” isn’t the name of a muslim God, it’s just the Arabic word for God. If you’re an arab Catholic saying the lord’s prayer in Arabic you’d say Allah… because that’s the word for god in that language.

    The translation would be “In the name of God the most gracious and most merciful”. But that’s not nearly as scary and makes this article a non-event.

    • “Allah” is NOT the word “God” in Arabic. Allah is the NAME of their god. Mohammad’s parents were pagans that worshipped 350 deities. The chief deity was Allah. Mohammad dropped the other deities when he started Islam

    • funny how people like you think if you dont like useing a muslim word to say god then your scared of muslims by the way is not one color or group or your scared of islam im not scared of any of it i say go by there action not there word hmm killing people all over the world trying to rewrite every western nations law to shria law think its ok to rape men and woman own and sell slaves kill people for converting away from islam and the list keeps on going all adds up to islam is more like a cult then a peaceful religion

      • Funny how responses like yours start with “people like you”, as though pointing out a linguistic nuance defines everything about my political and/or religious ideology.

      • “Allah” is the name of the Moon god from the village where Mohammad lived as a boy. Mohammad promised “Allah the moon god” greatness if “Allah” would give Mohammad greatness. It is a simple study to find that Allah of the Koran is not God of Bible or Hebrew fame.

      • You have obviously never met an Arabic speaking Christian. Allah originally may be the moon god, but now much like the word gay its meaning has changed… to mean God. Arabic speaking Christians refer to the God “of the bible” as Allah. Its just that simple. Im not taking up for the idiot in this video just letting you know that allah means God it is up to you what God you associate it with.

      • Mike I’m not sure about that. They have the Crescent Moon on their flag, their young men are trained in the Quran and prayers, they would like us to believe that they worship the same God, but they know better. They are the descendants of Abraham, Ishmael and Nabit……. The bible is clear, that the prophets and all believers are the descendants of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, the descendants of faith.

      • Im not defending “them”, just simply stating that we can not assume everyone who uses the term Allah to refer to God is a terrorist. I am native born Floridian Christian American and I speak Arabic because my job requires it, there is just simply no other word in Arabic to refer to God(regardless of which one you choose to refer to). As for their flag having the crescent moon last time I checked speaking Arabic does not make you Muslim or even middle eastern born! Once again there are droves of American born Arabic speaking Christians. Just like there are thousands of American born Spanish speaking Hispanic Catholics doesnt mean they are drug lords!

      • “Allah” was merely the moon god from a village where the epileptic Mohammad was raised as a boy. Nothing more. Mohammad promised Allah he would elevate the name of Allah if Mohammad got what he wanted. It seems Mohammad kept his word.

    • I would say for you to talk to a Muslim, they would disagree. Western society (non Islamist) believe there are many words for God … Muslims do not. Allah is what WE translate to God, not the other way around.

      • You can say that all you like; it doesn’t make it true. Allah is the word in Arabic for God, hence why even Arab speaking Christians and Jews use that word.

  62. The religious intolerance of many of my fellow Americans is breath-taking. This was an exchange conducted through intermediaries. The fact is, there were a large number of Muslim people engaged in this process. Acknowledging their help and support, with a most cherished blessing, is absolutely appropriate. I applaud him for doing that.

    • Islam is *NOT* a religion, it’s a CULT. Religions do not force people to convert or kill them if they leave. Cults do.

    • Islam & the Koran calls to kill “infidels” or make them servants. You are free to tolerate your oppressors if you like. I for one, will not.

      • Until those people (Americans, specifically the father we are referring to) actually attempt to oppress, then they are not oppressors. Or are you one who would oppress his freedom of speech? Trade one oppression for another?

  63. Chuck Hagel said they had to act swiftly and not inform Congress because Bergdahl’s health was a concern. Kindof like thousands of our veterans on secret waiting lists at the VA? Where is the urgency for the true American heroes?

    • How do they know what his health was? So, if they knew where he was, why didn’t they send in a Seal Team to rescue him…Instead of giving them 5 terrorist killers?

    • Oh, *those* vets weren’t able to further Obama’s plan to close Gitmo. He has his priorities as commander in chief, none of which include taking care of veterans.

  64. this traitor deserves what I can’t say because I don’t want my door busted down at 4 a.m. from the NSA sent mercenary killers that want to kill me and my innocent family and destroy America, but let it be known I am in prep mode!! For that day Molon Labe!

  65. The Koran is hate through out . It states to kill all infidels (Christian, Jew, Catholic, Mormon, etc). If that is not clear enough. It means all must submit to Islam or die. CLEAR ENOUGH?

    • As disturbing as this whole exchange is….We can’t just knock the Koran….the Holy Bible is also filled with outdated nonsense of complete demented beliefs.

      • ROFLMAO!!!! Your wiki-link cites the KKK as a Christian group.
        Hahahahaaa!!!! No true Christian associates themselves with the KKK. Jesus said to love God with all of thy heart and soul, and to thy neighbor as thyself –and has absolutely nothing to do with hate, racial divide or bigotry, and certainly nothing to do with strapping bombs to one’s self and blowing up innocent people. The KKK is a not a church or a religion.
        MEN twist religion to suit themselves. Following Christ is following love, not hate, and anyone who tells you otherwise is a fool and a liar, and not to be trusted.

      • I personally love the IRA, who were an insurgency that went to great lengths to only attack legitimate military targets… (Not to mention that the troubles were only tangentially over religion in the first place.)

      • are u remembering the Oklahoma City federal building Booming too in the name of Jesus back int 1990’s

      • Great my point is he was a non Muslim terrorist that did some thing y arent u saying Christianity is bad as wen a muslim does h people interpret it as if isl am said to do so and start making things up and offending people’s belives

        Before start a war on any thing dont just say as tv or other retarded would do
        Read about islam from trusted source
        not just go to u tube and listen to an islam hater

      • I don’t recall ever saying there weren’t any domestic terrorists here. What I did say is that his bombing of the Murrah Federal Building was not done “in the name of Jesus” as you tried to say. I asked you to prove that it was and you have not done so. I have tried to find any link that you said there was and have not found any.

        I also study the Qu’ran so that when I come up against people like you I know what it says and only “quoting from tv or other retards would do”. But apparently you do seem to only go by what others say because you haven’t proved anything, but to parrot talk someone else.

      • I made a point
        And an example every one here is cursing islam for the act of a perosn or a group of terrorists
        And if u do kjow what exactly quraan say
        Yiu5 would have known that it never asked to kill innocents in fact it describe it as of killing all humans but looking at the bible lucke 19:27 where is exactly say to kill who ever not believe in jesuse also 19:23

        Im done talking wz people like you

      • Your point that I had replied to was that McVeigh bombed the Murrah building in the name of Jesus. You made the statement about Mcveigh not the Bible. I asked you to prove he did it in the name of Jesus, which you still have not done. You made no point about that at all.

        You can be “done talking wz people like” me but it still remains you proved nothing as far as McVeigh goes and his bombing of the Murrah building.

      • If its muslims then its allover the news
        But mass shooting in schools the guy would be crazy
        Killing 20+ kidds in school and teachers
        By a non muslim its nothing at all lol
        But if a muslim do any thing is ISLAM is evil WTF people

      • Ok, I watched the whole thing and no where did they mention that it was in the name of Jesus. Try again.

      • The fact that you would cite an article that lists the IRA as terrorists proves you have nothing to add to this conversation.

      • Wikipedia is hardly a credible source. Did you link to it before, or after, you edited the entry?

  66. Nice from a supposed military officer. I guess that shows what kind of a leader you were/are. Never leave a comrade behind, West, remember? Or was your oath that long ago? This guy, regardless of the circumstances, was held for 5 years. What kind of a mean-spirited, completely lacking in human feeling shithead begrudges his freedom? Apparently, you. Congratulations, COLONEL, your nobility shines through.

      • I did old dog and I think it is time you were put to sleep. But I wasn’t in the ARMY I was a Marine. I have also just spent 8 years in SW Asia. The last 4 years in Afghanistan. Before you start that where were you stuff. Where were you?. I didn’t see you there. Col west has said in several articles related to this issue that it was Good that Berghdal was coming home. Read and you will find that in several articles. But he also said that something isn’t right and needs to be evaluated. Walking off your post is a violation of the 2nd general Order and as a VET you should know that. Or you may have forgotten as they really didn’t stress that in the supply MOS, ,did they? Oh by the way I didn’t see my combat on TV. And I have seen what the Afghans do to people they really don’t like.

      • I suppose, as a Marine, and therefore a hero, that you executed American soldiers (or Marines) for violations, right? I still haven’t heard back from dickhead, now, have I? I actually wasn’t asking the question of you, but you chime right in.

      • Yes Old Dog I am a Marine. Hero is not for me to say, But in answer to your Question There are stipulations in the UCMJ that allows execution of deserters as well as convictions for Treason. You can be shot for desertion in the face of the enemy, and the Constitution mandates hanging for Treason.
        As I said and you know, all the FACTS are not in yet, but from the evidence presented to date, and the witness statements from his team mates it’s not looking to good for our boy. If the evidence presented and testimonies to date are true, I think he will look back at his time with his Afghan brothers with fond remembrance.
