Remember when former President Barack Obama traded five Taliban prisoners for Bowe Bergdahl, the Army soldier that the Obama administration tried to palm off as a noble warrior? In the end, it turned out Bergdahl was a deserter who abandoned his fellow soldiers when he walked off his military outpost in Paktika, Afghanistan.
Within hours of Bergdahl committing dereliction of duty, he was captured by the Taliban and spent the next five years as their captive.
Six, count em, 6 US soldiers DIED searching for this scumbag, Bergdahl. Millions of Americans, including me, wondered what in the heck was Obama getting at? It didn’t matter if Bergdahl was the stellar soldier that the liars in the Obama administration tried to sell to America. He traded five Taliban commanders for one US soldier. Did the Taliban have other soldiers in captivity Obama could have added to the trade? Did he even ask?
It turns out, President Obama failed to listen to Pentagon officials who advised him in no uncertain terms that Khairullah Khairkhwa, one of the five Taliban commanders who was traded for the deserter Bergdahl, was too dangerous for him to release. And he went ahead and released the group that became known as the “Gitmo Five” anyway, and Khairkhwa was one of them. They were all released from Guantanamo Bay prison in 2014 for the piece of human debris Bergdahl, who left his post and put his fellow soldiers in harm’s way and cost six good US soldiers their lives looking for him. May they rest in peace.
Remember how Obama went all out with his lies, telling us that the five Taliban commanders would be transported to Qatar and that their movements would be restricted so that they couldn’t cause any harm or mayhem? I guess Obama didn’t know about the Internet back then.
Obama said he received assurances from Qatar’s government that it would restrict the future movements of these detainees, who have been involved in terrorist operations.
“We saw an opportunity,” Obama said. “We were concerned about Sgt. Bergdahl’s health.”
First off, the United States never negotiates with terrorists, at least publicly, that is until Barack Obama came along. The reason for that is that men much smarter than Barry knew that once you start negotiating with terrorists it could encourage them, or even other terror groups who hear about it, to kidnap more Americans so that they too can get a sweetheart deal like the one Obama gave to the Taliban. To this day, as an American, I feel betrayed by Obama.
And guess what? Khairkhwa, the dirt bag that the Pentagon folks tried to tell Obama was not a real nice guy? Yeah, he’s reemerged in the world as of late, and it turns out he’s one of the masterminds behind the Taliban’s recent takeover of Kabul.

Those Taliban commanders didn’t make nice with America in their hearts after President Worthless traded them for the deserter and once they were released, they contacted active Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan and swore that they would someday return to fight against America once again. And they did just that. Thanks, Barry!
Believe it or not, the Gitmo Five were among the Taliban leaders who negotiated for “peace” in Afghanistan, and after the 2020 steal, they had President Joe Biden leading the charge to withdraw all US troops from the region making it super easy for the terrorists to take over again.
Khairkhwa said the Taliban forces would not launch a military offensive if President House Plant Biden withdrew American troops from Afghanistan, and gosh dang it, it looks like the terrorist freed by Biden’s old boss didn’t keep his word. Who would have thought that would happen outside of everyone on God’s green and blue earth but Joe Biden, the man who Barack Obama’s own Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, once said of Biden, “I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades?”
To show you what a degenerate Barack Obama is, Khairkhwa was accused of conspiring with Osama bin Ladin back in 2001 and was arrested. Being the President of the United States, Obama had to be told, probably by the very same Pentagon officials who warned him to not release Khairkhwa in the first place, that the guy had ties to bin Laden, the man responsible for killing over 3,000 Americans on the day known as 9/11. He couldn’t pick some other scumbag terrorist to release?
President Donald Trump built the Gitmo prison’s standards back up to how terrorists should be treated after Obama went soft on them during his terms in office, but you have to wonder how the completely botched withdrawal of US troops from Afganistan under Biden would have gone if Khairkhwa and his four buddies hadn’t been traded for the loser Bergdahl who put his fellow soldiers in harm’s way.
