Obama Paid Money to Al Qaeda for Bergdahl Release

…The Haqqani Network is worse than the Taliban in some ways. It’s a lot closer to Al Qaeda to the extent of nearly being it. It’s also responsible for killing a lot of people.

Funding it is worse than funding the Taliban. But on top of that, the whole thing also fell through which makes the entire operation look more like clown college than ever with the whole thing culminating in the release of top Taliban leaders.

Obama has been on his high horse about the Europeans paying ransoms to ISIS and other Al Qaeda groups. He has a point. That money helped it become a major threat. But his position is going to be significantly undermined if it turns out that the US was paying ransoms…

…If actual money changed hands to HQ or someone associated with them, that means that Obama has come dangerously close to funding Al Qaeda.

Related:  Fox New Channel’s Greta Van Susteren has been a tireless champion for Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. This morning, she posted this to her Facebook page. We are including the entire post for those readers who may not have access to the site.


And if you agree with me that this is a very serious problem, please SHARE this post as we need action to avoid potential graver problems. I don’t want to be an alarmist but I also don’t want to ignore the possible.

As an aside, I hope you watch ON THE RECORD at 7pm tonight — an hour with Sgt. Tahmooressi.

Sgt. Tahmooressi is a good man, a very good man.

He was having paranoid thoughts and in March sought treatment at VA in San Diego. After going through the pre screening at the VA, and just a day or two later, he made that wrong turn and ended up in Mexico and in prison. Yes, with the paranoid thoughts and guns….he went through beatings, humiliation, uncertainty and isolation.

He is now out of the Mexican prison. He is out because Mexico determined he has PTSD which is obvious and which of course our GOVERNMENT SHOULD HAVE BEEN TELLING MEXICO from day #1. Our government took a hands off approach to this crisis. I believe that was wrong. His PTSD is no secret. It is noteworthy that Mexico released Sgt. Tahmooressi because of his PTSD (and not a wrong turn or on the question of whether he is guilty or not of violating the Mexican law.)

When you hear his interview tonight, you will know he has PTSD. Actually, if you listen to only the 30 second soundbite we have been playing on Fox News since yesterday, YOU KNOW he has PTSD.

Ask yourself, if it takes you 30 seconds or less to know this marine has PTSD — why did it take the Mexican government and Mexican Court 214 days and why hasn’t the OBama still figured it out? Is this really the best we can do for our injured vets?

MY WARNING TO THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND MY PLEA FOR HIM: Sgt. Tahmooressi is paranoid and has had access to guns. He has PTSD. That is obvious. Please help him. He is a good man and he helped us with 2 tours in Afghanistan (plus getting hit with an IED!) If we look the other way, and we should not, there is always the risk of danger and then of course people will say he is not a good man. He is. He is also a proud man — like all marines — and this is all the more difficult.

I recommend the US Military send a fellow marine, who has been to Afghanistan, been hit by an IED, and who has likewise struggled with PTSD to talk to him. The rest of us can’t walk in Andrew’s shoes like a fellow marine with the same experiences.

And please help all our other vets who have helped protect this country and who are hurt. There are many out there.
