Obama handed Taliban greatest victory

It is unbelievably sad and demoralizing to realize that the greatest victory that the Taliban have achieved in this 10-year war was just handed to them for free by our very own president, Barack Hussein Obama. I am referring to the trade of five war criminals (against the advice of all of his military advisers, against the will of Congress and against the law) for a soldier who, by all accounts, was a deserter at the least and a Taliban sympathizer and turncoat at worst.

Obama has single-handedly lost two wars that America had already won (Iraq and Afghanistan), continues to ignore immigration law by allowing thousands of unskilled illegal immigrants into our country (“undocumented Democrats”) and displays an arrogance that is breathtaking in its audacity. It would seem that there is no enemy that he does not rush to surrender America to. We are lucky that he was not president during World War II, or we would all be speaking German or Japanese now.

President Obama is a disgrace to the office and has quite possibly crossed the line of treason. He should be impeached and removed from office immediately before he can do any more harm to our country.
