From Sarah Palin's Facebook page:
When President Obama traded one deserter for five evil terrorists hell-bent on destroying America, rational people did not believe the Obama administration’s claims about this traitor’s “health crisis,” or claims that he served “with honor and distinction,” and certainly not President Obama’s claim that this was a good deal for America.
After putting the country in danger, President Obama celebrated Bergdahl in our Rose Garden, arm in arm with his smiling father greeting Americans in Arabic and Pashtu, as our loyal troops cringed. In fact, in the days that followed, the Obama administration actually smeared the vets who came forward to tell the truth about Bergdahl’s traitorous desertion.
Now finally public disclosure tells the truth – that Bergdahl is a deserter. In my book, he is a traitor. Also, reports show the majority of the terrorist leaders Obama set free in exchange for this deserter have taken steps to hook up with the enemy – their Taliban pals in Afghanistan. As rational Americans predicted, the prisoners didn’t see the light while being freed at Gitmo, instead they burrowed further in the darkness of jihad, laughing all the way back to the battlefield to rejoin their death cult in the fight against U.S. troops, for when they are soon released from probation in Qatar, nothing stops them.
President Obama’s prisoner swap clearly undermined our forces during a time of war; he violated law by releasing terrorist prisoners without giving Congress the required 30 days’ advance notice; he created more distrust among our allies; he disrespected our loyal and sacrificial troops by actually honoring a traitor; and most significantly, our own Commander-in-chief endangered America.
Congress, if putting our nation in danger doesn’t rise to the level of “high crimes,” then nothing does. But since you’ve unequivocally and inexplicably taken impeachment off the table for anything Obama does while on your watch, what do you intend to do about this? If you do your job as balancers of power, we can surely expect repercussions, correct? While you're thinking about your responsibility, consider the men who DID serve with honor and distinction, but of course were never celebrated in our Rose Garden. These men of courage and good character were killed while obeying orders to find and protect the celebrated deserter Bergdahl.
Mr. President, if you can pull yourself away from your all-important basketball brackets and buckets of popcorn, you too should take a good look at these selfless young troops who gave all for their country. We await your explanation on all of this; certainly even a complicit media deserves it. More importantly though, the families of our fallen heroes deserve the most heartfelt apology.
