Obama’s trade for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl now joins the infamous list of “Worst Trades in History.”
In the sports world there have been many legendary bad trades. Julius Irving. Kobe Bryant. Nolan Ryan. Hershel Walker to the Minnesota Vikings for an entire team of players and draft picks that led to three Super Bowl victories for the Dallas Cowboys.
But the worst sports trade ever was the Red Sox selling Babe Ruth to the Yankees. The Red Sox didn’t win another title for 86 years. The Yankees became the greatest American sports franchise in history. They won 7 World Championships with Babe Ruth.
It was called, “The Curse of the Bambino.”
But in the real world there was one trade that topped them all, when American Indians were conned into selling Manhattan for $24 of trinkets in 1626.
That was the worst trade in history. Until now.
Obama takes the cake. Obama just traded an entire team of Islamic mass murderers and America-haters for one tragically confused (or perhaps mentally ill) deserter and traitor. Not just any mass murderers, but buddies of Osama bin Laden.
Folks, that's a really bad trade. It just doesn't get any worse than that.
What did we get in return? A traitor who purposely walked away from his base searching for enemy to surrender to.
Whose search and rescue cost the lives of as many as 14 heroes (his military brothers).
Who may have converted to Islam and taught bomb making skills to the Taliban.
Whose father welcomed him home at a White House ceremony in Arabic. It is rumored the father converted to Islam.
