Kinda bothers me he was promoted to SGT while captive. SGT is a leadership position and it looks like he abandoned his post as a PFC which does not show any leadership qualities. Also bothers me some of the posts I have seen his father made to the Taliban and his father speaking in Arabic at the deal with Obama after he was released.
"Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."
Everyone seems to think this story is unfolding...its been there in full for five years. We have known where he was for the five years,yet no attempt was made to retrive him. Deserters dont often get the attention of retrieval as would a valuable brother deserve.
Obama broke the law, aided and abeited the Taliban, and asked the media to try and push a cover of a Hero coming home.....
Thats NOT how its done son....And now America negotiates, and now our President has shown whos side he is on.
I hunt because......
wow, peraps i spoke to soon, i guess i was hoping for the best, this is a sad deal all in all. this was the 2nd time he walked away. he walked away while training tin the states too. sounds like he shouldnt have been over there to begin with. my heart goes out to his family. and i pray that the pigs that were let go are a part of a greater plan, but with obama i doubt that very much.
I was wondering today what happens to your pay when you are taken prisoner? does it stop or stop after a certain amount of time or keeps being deposited into your account if they think you are alive still?
I'm very late to this thread so don't know if I'm repeating what has already been said. Multiple things bother me about this the first being why the animals decided to keep this person alive for five years?? That I really don't understand. He also abandoned his post and his brothers from what I understand. We also negotiated with terrorists so we prove kidnapping is now profitable. If we give up five high ranking degenerates for one defector how much would a decorated officer or special forces/ CIA operative be worth?
