Because they are amusingly stupid?

Jesus Christ this is a whole new level of derp. We traded spies with the Soviets and East Germans numerous times during the Cold War. Spies who did more damage to the US and it's interests than thes goat farkers who've been sitting in Gitmo for a decade because they were caught in Taliban camp

Francis Gary Powers is a prominent example of a US soldier traded for a spy

I would think that if I was held captive for an indeterminate amount of time, I too would seek to learn the language of my captors.  It's a survival mechanism, and it allows for actual human discourse, the absence of which can cause great mental anguish.

At least 3 of them should have either been hung for crimes against humanity or at least sharing a cell w/ Slobodan's buddies for ethnic/religious cleansing of Shia muslims

So no the spies we swapped w/ Russia are nowhere near the same ballpark as these pieces of shiat

SilentStrider: Bigger mystery- why do Breitbart links keep getting greenlit?


I remember we used to get almost daily LGF submissions derping up the queue. Then they stopped getting greenlit. It was right around the time they cut back on the derp and criticized the bullshiat. But I'm sure this timing was purely coincidental and not because sanity doesn't bring in the clicks and page views.

We can thank the Bush Administration for utterly botching their imprisonment and completely preventing them from ever going to trial.

Chris Ween: NY Post has some questions too.  I admit I don't know much about this guy or his story.


It's best folks don't know too much. Just know he was a super soldier who killed tens of thousands of Taliban with his bare hands and was only captured because Congress ordered him to walk off base and into the arms of the Taliban because reasons. His last words before being captured was "honor me by voting for affordable care for all Americans and comprehensive immigration reform."

Truly an American hero.

author, submitter, admin who greenlit this piece of shiat, breitbart editor who approved it

I'm surprised they didn't ask for KSM and blind sheikh, too. I doubt there'd be any Democrat-type who'd have a problem with the swap.

Well, that's taken a good two days for the strawman to be completely built. Burn away.

"It's good we got one of ours back, and maybe we shouldn't immediately assume he's a traitor or deserter simply because it would make something that would make Obama look good in some way worse." has become "HE WAS CAPTAIN AMERICA AND DESERVES ALL THE MEDALS YEAH WE JUST RECOVERED OUR GREATEST WEAPON IN THE WAR ON TERROR! YEEEEEEEAH!"

I guess when you're obsessed with making new hurt your political opponents no matter the situation, guarded optimism is the same as blind hero worship.

What are your thoughts on Jessica Lynch? Were the people doubting the official story America haters who hated the troops because they hate America and its troops?

That's how it works.  The fringe goes nuts, bloggers and talk radio starts pounding it into the eyeballs and eardrums of the goobers, Fox News picks it up, and then berates the evil EmmEssEmm for not covering it.  The rest of the media (usually led by Jonathan Karl or Sheryl Adkisson) pokes their head in with an, "Alright, what's all this, then?", and it's now mainstream.

The message insinuates that Sgt. Bergdahl decided to learn the language of the Islamic texts. Only a handful of Afghanistan's 31 million people understand Arabic, and the official languages of the country are Pashto and Dari.

OK, so why is that significant? It's not the language of the Afghani people, so what's your point? If he learned to talk with his captors, and THEY spoke Arabic, then it's pretty safe to assume that he learned it because it's what he heard spoken around him. Same with him 'having difficulty speaking English'. How many English speakers were around him for the last 5 years?


And THIS picture isn't inflammatory at all, is it?

At this point, the best thing the Obama administration can do is utterly disregard any noise coming from the GO/TP. Make a decision based on facts, weight the pros and the cons, find other moderates with opposing, educated opinions, then act.

in this case, I think they did the right thing.  There are a lot of factors here, but at the end of the day, one of ours comes home alive, and it's literally not like we had any other use for those we traded.

Bergdahl had also changed his name to Abdullah, the Taliban claimed, though the mainstream media largely ignored the story...

Strangely enough, so did Brietbart.com, since a search on their website just for his last name produces 10 pages of search results, almost all in the last 24 hours.

I'd like everyone to welcome Brietbart.com into the mainstream media fold...

Whenever Fox News tries to hint that it isn't part of the "mainstream" media, I imagine Alabama football fans referring to their team as the "underdog" or as a "Cinderella story."
