Flashback... June 2013



MR. CARNEY: What I can tell you is that the main dialogue that we support is the dialogue between Afghans -- between the Taliban and the Afghan government. However, there are some issues that we would like to discuss with the Taliban directly, and this includes the safe return of Sergeant Bergdahl, who has been gone for far too long.
We continue to call for and work toward his safe and immediate release. We cannot discuss all the details of our efforts, but there should be no doubt that on a daily basis we are continuing to pursue -- using our military, intelligence and diplomatic tools -- the effort to return him home safely. And our hearts are with the Bergdahl family.
With regard to the transfer of Taliban detainees from Guantanamo Bay, we have made -- the United States has not made the decision to do that, though we do expect the Taliban to raise this issue in our discussion, if and when those discussions happen.
As we have long said, however, we would not make any decisions about transfer of any detainees without consulting with Congress and without doing so in accordance with U.S. law.




Another lie...another broken promise

He's not going to be able to speak his piece T-Bones?


I think he has a lot of speaking to do. He is going to have a tough time trying to justify walking away from his post.


You and I would have had a lot to explain if we did now wouldn't we?

He shouldn't. He's been convicted by two Canadians. That's good enough for me.

Excellent.. So we are agreed then.

Time to move onto more pressing matters... We still have to chose our menu for the next Sat nite BBQ.

Thoughts?

Dissertion is a felony under Federal law. As such he is entitled to a fair trial and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty in a court of law.

Have you got "the cart before the horse"? I think the trial has to happen before he can be classified as a deserter. -

There's enough evidence to establish a prima facie case of desertion. A trial will give him a chance to exonerate, exculpate or mitigate his conduct.

This is analogous to putting someone on trial who has committed homicide. A trail is necessary to determine whether the homicide is murder, manslaughter, or justified.

Does the commander in chief have the authority to nix that?


It would be to his advantage to make sure his "hero" of the day doesn't turn out to be a "deserter"!

He does indeed as the CIC and I agree 100% with you. Having this guy honorably discharged quickly will save the Administration a whole lot of heat.

This is probably in spite of Obama not because of him.
In two states it is legal to smoke pot.
In 23 states it is legal to screw your horse.

Giving new meaning to the saying
Fuk you and the horse you rode in on.

The one example I gave in my post, Limbaugh is a far right American, not a far right Canadian. Canadian far right is mercifully irrelevant. American far right unfortunately, is too powerful.

I'm extremely disappointed that Canada seems to get closer and closer to becoming America junior when the best things about Canada are how unlike the U.S. it is. It's why I want to go there.
