Bowe Bergdahl, who deserted his post in a war zone and went over to the enemy, a crime that had gotten not a few guys a short length of rope and a handy tree, has been exchanged for five very dangerous Muslim jihad commanders, who will no doubt quickly resume their interrupted careers of killing Americans. The Obama administration claims that Bergdahl was a prisoner of war, and we were obligated to get him back to his country and his family. If I were a skeptic I would view their explanation with some caution. The Obama administration has been known to lie whenever it suits their convenience, and it looks like this is one of those times. You will recall that for any prisoners to be released required the okay from Congress, and It seems to me that releasing the five Muslim killers without even telling Congress let alone asking permission, was an Obama trial run to see if he could get away with breaking the law with impunity. He has now moved Congress out of the equation, and we can look for Obama to quickly return the remaining imprisoned Muslim killers to the battlefield.

I am so glad that I am not a skeptic
For if I were I’d surely be dyspeptic
But now that I believe White House pronouncements
I know that even lies are mere announcements
That mean the opposite of what they’re saying
Or else it’s just a game that they are playing
I knew whenever Carney made denials
That people everywhere just turned the dials
Now take the five guys just released to Qatar
Were I a betting man I’d take a flutter
On odds that all five guys rejoin the jihad
While our returned guy spurns the life that he had
As I recall he walked away and sought out
The Taliban when all his plans were thought out
He learned to speak the language of his new mates
So now the six guys going home are crewmates
We know the five guys will be bent on terror
Were I a skeptic I’d hope I’m in error
That people in the White House surely know that
Our guy returning home will one day show that
He spent five years in training for the day when
He’d come alive when Mullahs somewhere say when
But like I say my skeptic days are over
It may be that our guy was just a rover
Who wandered off until he was surrounded
By Taliban and surely was dumbfounded
The White House couldn’t know he’s turned now, could they?
They wouldn’t let a turncoat home now, would they?
