Another big blunder

We can finally say that the commander in chief has become the horse trader in chief. The swapping of five of the world’s worst terrorists for a likely military deserter with no hero aspects to him whatsoever surpasses by far any of the many previous Obama blunders and follies. Then to celebrate the stupidity, we are treated to a Rose Garden victory lap starring President Barack Obama and Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s bearded father, who appears to have as much love for this country as his misguided son.

This latest foreign policy head scratcher will have long and far-reaching ramifications. We are told that the United States will “”keep our eyes on them” now that the prisoners are released. No doubt the same set of eyes that kept such superb watch in Benghazi will be utilized.

To Mr. Obama, the terrorist wars may be over, but to the enemy it is far from finished. This shortsighted cave in to these murderous thugs will bring only more violence against and capture of our brave military forces. But when things turn really nasty in the future, Mr. Obama can still fall back on his trump card — blame George W. Bush!
