One of former President Barack Obama’s foreign policy masterstrokes is now coming around full circle to bite America in the ass.
Back in 2014, Dear Leader made a controversial trade of five suspected terrorists who were being held in Guantanamo Bay for Army soldier Bowe Bergdahl who deserted his post and was captured and held by the Taliban for five years.
Some suggested at the time that Berghdahl – who was on record as hating the military and possibly America – had gone native.
But despite the critics who questioned the wisdom of whether it was a good idea to trade five hardened Islamic extremists for Bergdahl, Obama and his bootlickers in the media downplayed the idea that the released prisoners would ever become a danger to our troops again.
Until they didn’t.
All of them have now been confirmed to have rejoined the Taliban.

Five members of the Afghan Taliban who were freed from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay in exchange for captured American Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl have joined the insurgent group’s political office in Qatar, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said Tuesday.
They will now be among Taliban representatives negotiating for peace in Afghanistan, a sign some negotiators in Kabul say indicates the Taliban’s desire for a peace pact.

“The Taliban are bringing back their old generation, which means the Taliban have not changed their thinking or their leadership,” said Haroun Mir, political analyst in the Afghan capital.

Helluva job Barry! Not only did he destabilize the entire Middle East while he was in office but like the proverbial Jelly of The Month Club, he’s the gift that just keeps on giving.
Don’t worry, the media will have his back if these scumbags end up killing U.S. troops.
