Agree or Disagree? Obama's Taliban prisoner swap (5 Taliban Terrorists for Bergdahl) showed the Taliban that it pays to kidnap USA citizens?
Since they'll get 5 Taliban Terrorists back for every American citizen they kidnap.
USA citizens = not necessarily a soldier

Yeah wtf five for five even if he was a good soldier and not some brain washed looney i would release one soldier for one not five for one

It shows that Obama will free 5 terrorists to distract from the VA scandal.....and that the media will bite.

no it shows that 1 taliban is with 1/5 of a human white American.
even before the civil war one black slave was counted as 3/5 of a human.

Hardly, if that was the case they would have ample opportunity to take more hostages in the twelve years we were in the Middle East. The war is over and the troops are coming home. I doubt the Taliban wants us to return.
Americans have been warned not to travel in the Middle East or certain parts of the world. The family that is being held was is there at their own risk. Now, the troops are coming home they won't have the chance to kidnap anyone.
Americans have a higher risk of being kidnapped by Mexicans, if they go to Mexico, than being kidnapped by the Taliban.

Or just wait for a republican president and have 500 released for nothing in return.

No. The Taliban knows that it pays to have republican presidents in charge, knowing that republicans will release more than 600 Gitmo detainees for absolutely nothing in return, while democrats only release 5 detainees and require them to actually do something beneficial for the US in return.

But maybe you should pay attention to the Republicans who are all up in arms, spreading this latest talking point, and note how many of them were in *absolute agreement* with the deal--which started in 2011--until about 12 hours after it happened.

Absolutely. And that is probably what Obama wanted, it will give him more opportunities to show the Average Idiot Liberal what a big hero he is.
Just watch the Idiot Liberals in here act accordingly.
