Jim, As a 1968-69 Quang Tri Marine Viet Nam Vet and a student of political history, you are right on with your observation. Unfortunately we have a President with no military experience, who doesn't even know how to pronounce Navy Corpsman (Corpseman?) let along sound military decisions. History will repeat itself in Iraq, Iran, Syria and Afghanistan with the added ethnic Islamic issues posed by the Sunni's, Shiaites and Kurds. The Obama Cloward-Piven strategy at home and no southern border protection will readily allow America's sworn enemies to create havoc on our soil! http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/Articles/cloward-piven-chart.pdf

Check out why these Army Promotions occurred and you may uncover some interesting "cover-up" connections.... Army Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl promoted while in captivity to Specialist to Sargent in 5 years... “We will give him all the support he needs to help him recover from this ordeal,” the secretary added, “and we are grateful that he will soon be reunited with his family.” Also today, Hagel said he informed Congress of the decision to transfer five detainees from Guantánamo Bay to Qatar. “The United States has coordinated closely with Qatar to ensure that security measures are in place and the national security of the United States will not be compromised,” Hagel said. “I appreciate the efforts of the Emir of Qatar to put these measures in place and I want to thank him for his instrumental role in facilitating the return of Sgt. Bergdahl,” the secretary acknowledged. (My Comment: To whom did the US just release the Gitmo terrorists? Qatar? Coincidence?) One of Hagel’s first acts upon taking office in February 2013 was to call the Bergdahl family about their son’s situation, Pentagon Press Secretary Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said during a January press conference. In June 2011 the Army announced that it had promoted Bergdahl to the rank of sergeant. http://www.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=122375 Major Gen. Robert P. Ashley is a career intelligence officer who has served in numerous intelligence functions during his career to include assignments at Fort Bragg, N.C., Washington, D.C., Fort Gordon, Ga., MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., Izmir, Turkey, as well deployments to Bosnia-Herzegovina, Iraq and Afghanistan. He has held command positions at the company, battalion and brigade levels and served in senior intelligence positions with the Army Joint Special Operations Command and the U.S. Central Command. He comes to Intelligence Center of Excellence from being the senior intelligence officer in Afghanistan. http://www.svherald.com/content/news/2013/04/20/351644 Why all the promotions for being a captive/deserter/traitor and those overseeing the episode... keeping silent and being rewarded?

My Dad served as a Medic in the 104th Evacuation Unit under Gen. Patton's Third Army. Here is and excellent eye witness account from Florence Fattig, a nurse in the Army Nurse Corps, goes into detail about how front line field hospitals worked, what kinds of injuries they saw, and the role she played in treating injured soldiers in Europe during World War II. - See more at: http://www.witnesstowar.org/content/view.php?v=4386#sthash.lFIOYPFf.dpuf http://www.witnesstowar.org/content/view.php?v=4386 My Dad recounted many stories of helping our wounded soldiers..... May God continue to Bless America. These patriots are almost all gone now!
Excellent expose' on how Muslims are infiltrating our Democratic government and Military, using both against us with the blessing of the current Liberal/ Progressive regime. Is anyone paying attention to what Michelle Malkin is telling us?
If things are so good for the Democratic administration, why is everyone quitting of being forced to resign? I think I know.... Laws are for little people, i.e. not democratic elitists. Or as the Progressives always resort to saying when confronted with the facts; “ it is what it is”, or “it depends on what the meaning of the word IS… is”, or “ we have to pass it to see what’s in it” or “you never want to let a serious crisis go to waste” or “let me be perfectly clear”, or “what difference at this point does it make?” or “according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity…” or “We didn’t lie, it’s just that the words we used, in the order we used them, didn’t tell the truth, per se”, “here’s the bottom line” or “I have a pen and I have a phone (and executive privilege and clemency)” “I face this challenge with profound humility and knowledge of my own limitations” to the president who says if Congress won’t act on this issue, “I will.” and last but not least, “on the advice of my counsel I respectfully exercise my 5th Amendment right and decline to answer the question!” Please notice the word "transparent? is no longer mentioned in the vocabulary..... or 'A democracy requires accountability, and accountability requires transparency.' and "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."

Hanging is cheap, simple to carry out and most important.....very effective! Hanging is one of the oldest means of execution, dating back to the times of The Old Testament in The Book of Esther. where the ten sons of Haman were hanged.[1] Hanging has been practiced legally in the United States of America from the nation's birth, up to 1972 when the United States Supreme Court found capital punishment to be in violation of the eighth amendment to the United States Constitution.[2] Four years later, the Supreme Court overturned its previous ruling, and in 1976, capital punishment was again legalized in the United States.[3] However, today hanging is only legal in the states of Washington and New Hampshire [4][5] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanging_in_the_United_States

The time has come for action to vote for our Constitution and our Convictions. Many have died fighting for our right to vote! Don't be fooled by political rhetoric and the smoke and mirrors of the Statehouses and Washington. Don't listen to the politicians who change the subject when asked tough questions which effect us all! Remember, only you can vote for liberty and justice for all!!! “The right to choose makes us all equal. God shows us the right choices!” Land of the Free, because of the Brave......
