The Taliban Five Welcomed Home

I think this should be seen by all.

From the BBC:

A pro-Taliban website has published a video it says shows the welcome of Taliban detainees arriving in Qatar after being released

In return, America secured the release of an alleged deserter and a possible Taliban collaborator.

Michael Tomasky is already on the attack for the left:

The Republicans’ audacity here is a bit beyond the usual. Let’s face it: There is no question that if President George W. Bush or a President McCain or President Romney had secured Bergdahl’s release in exchange for five Taliban prisoners at Gitmo, Republicans would be defending the move all the way. That business about notifying Congress? They’d have a dozen excuses for it. We got our prisoner of war home, they’d all be saying. That’s what matters.

Notice how he doesn’t mention what the Democrats would do to a Republican president under these circumstances.

He doesn’t have to, we all ready know.

And Michael, if a Republican President did this, I’d still say; this whole thing stinks.
