Obama has zero respect for the rule of law or Congress, and it was never more evident than when he released five high-level terror suspects from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for a soldier who deserted his post and declared jihad on America while in captivity.
In his decision to act unilaterally and outside of the scope of law, Obama said loud and clear that he thinks he can do whatever he wants and doesn’t have to explain himself to anybody.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, a Senate insider said that during a classified briefing on Tuesday Obama Administration officials told lawmakers that their choice to work outside of the law and not inform Congress was “worth it, period.”
The facts of the case apparently don’t mean a thing to Obama or his cohorts. Originally they said that Bergdahl’s life was in imminent danger so they had to act immediately, however multiple reports have confirmed that his health was fine when we got him back. It’s also well known that the five Taliban members will in fact return to their lives of terror, but that doesn’t matter to Obama who’s trying to close down Gitmo. This is all on top of the fact that just three years ago Obama went to court to keep one of these men IN Gitmo.
No matter how you look at it, the Obama Administration believes they can do as they please whenever they want, and when they’re called to task on it they just pass the buck to someone else.
2016 can’t come soon enough.
