This is going to be short and sweet, or as sweet as I can be.
I want to say welcome home Bowe Bergdahl. May you recover from your wounds and your torture.
And now as to the not so sweet part. Congress is complaining about President Obama not getting in touch with them to approve the release of Bergdahl. They complained that releasing 5 men from Guantanamo in exchange for Berdahl will only increase terrorism. Well, the only reason Congress is angry is because they’re not getting any credit for bringing him home. They really want attention and credit for bringing home the last P.O.W. from Afghanistan. If the President tried to get the approval from Congress, Bergdahl would still be in a prison camp, and probably would’ve died there.
I’m sure his mother and father feel the same way. They don’t care how they got him out, they’re just glad he’s out of that awful place, as any parents would be.
I don’t really think the threats of terrorism will increase. Whether Bergdahl stayed in the camp or not, the world would still suffer the same fate.
And who knows, maybe releasing the men from Guantanamo might be a good thing. Maybe the terrorists won’ t think the U.S. is such a bad country after all.
So, Congress, stop pouting and do some work. Some real work, not just complain about something. Do something.
