Obama’s Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Prisoner Exchange

“The Ransom of Red Chief”

“The Ransom of Red Chief”

So what happened to the smart diplomacy we were promised by Barack Obama?

The question comes as the Taliban is getting all giggly, having snookered Obama with the trade of Bowe Bergdahl for five terrorists with a long list of bloody credentials who have been infesting Guantanamo Bay.

And this operation shouldn’t be confused with an effort to bring, say, Mother Teresa to safety. This is roughly akin to turning John Wayne Gacy loose in a kindergarten — times five — in exchange for Tokyo Rose.

Worst of all, Obama — can we call him Doltbama? — thought he was pulling a crowd pleaser by bringing back a genuine American hero from the clutches of the Taliban.

If what we know so far is any indicator, the Taliban had to be excited they would no longer have to deal with such an insufferable, self-righteous, overweening pile of pretense. And they got rid of Bergdahl, too.

The latest reports say the Taliban thugs wanted cold, hard cash for their hostage, they didn’t even ask for the Gitmo prisoner exchange.

Not since O. Henry’s “The Ransom of Red Chief” has a kidnapping plot gone so terribly wrong.

But now the Bungler in Chief says he has nothing to apologize for, which makes some sense. He’s screwed up the economy, the United States’ standing in the world, made Vladimir Putin look sympathetic, empowered the likes of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, and gave golf a bad name — So why start apologizing now?

Smart diplomacy?

It kind of went the way of the doctor you could keep and the $2,500 a year in insurance costs you’d save by paying even more for Obamacare.

    What a great piece by Observer Staff…. You should give him a raise! Obama will never apologize for his screw-ups because he honestly is batting for the wrong team. He and Bergdahl are both brothers in disgust of imperial America. Has anyone asked what our Nobel Senator Udall thinks of his freckles leader? We should try trading our Democrat politicians for freedom loving Afghans. 5 Dems for 1 freedom seeker seems about right .
