The Taliban "Conversates" with Obama

The 5 high-level Taliban (equivalent to five 4-star generals) that we traded for a deserter who professed contempt for the United States, are not allowed to engage in militant behavior nor are they permitted to raise money for the cause of jihad. These terrorists have all given their solemn "pinky swear" to the Obama administration, and Susan Rice has vouched for them.

Interestingly, Bowe Bergdahl is still in the German hospital but doesn't appear all that sick. If one didn't know better, one might believe the Obama Spin Team is coaching Bowe to help an Obama turd look like gold.

No war veteran believes that what Bergdahl did was like cutting Anarchy One class at UCLA. He deserted his unit and the punishment for that can be the death penalty. The chances of that actually being meted out is as likely as Obama bench-pressing 200 pounds.

The first thing the Spin Team told us was that Bergdahl was in poor health and needed to be freed as soon as possible to protect his life. This appears to be as true as a Jay  Carney response about Benghazi.

Now they're telling us that the reason Congress wasn't notified of the release, as is required constitutionally, is because the Taliban threatened to kill Bergdahl if the swap was made public. I can imagine how the Taliban side of the conversation went:

"Barack, this is Mohammad bin Mohammed from the Taliban. Yeah, I'm good, thanks. How 'bout you? Great. Enough of the small talk; let me get right to the point.

"This Bergdahl guy, you know, the guy who walked into our camp shouting, 'Anyone got a Qu'ran?' Yeah, him--he's still in our custody but we're willing to trade him for our 'Fab Five Taliban Jihadist Dream Team guys.' But listen, Hussein, may I call you Hussein . . . excellent . . . okay, listen up.

"We don't want you or your people going public on the trade. We'll give him back to you for our guys but it's gotta be done on the down-low, if you know what I'm saying. We don't want to look like we're being greedy by trading our guys for your, how should I say this delicately, loser, so you don't say squat to anyone or Bergdahl dies. You got it? Yeah--if it goes public, we kill him and you get to keep our Dream Team.

"By the way, Bergdahl's not a Jewish name, is it? That would change my whole calculus, if you know what I mean."

If you actually believe that the Taliban didn't want the public knowing about their fantastic deal, you have to be crazy.
