Does Obama Care More About An Army Deserter in Afghanistan Than a Veteran Marine in Prison in Mexico?

Is it any wonder Obama isn't respected as Commander in Chief by those serving in the military?

When Obama gave the commencement speech at West Point the enthusiasm of the graduating cadets was obviously lacking. Compare it to the enthusiasm cadets showed to the December 2008 visit by President Bush:

Why do you suppose that is? Oh, I don't know. Maybe because Obama seems to go out of his way to offend those who serve. The latest example comes from the release of five top Taliban leaders from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. These Taliban are the worst of the worst, charged with war crimes for mass murder yet allowed to go free for a man who members of his unit say deserted his post and trashed his country:

“I am sorry for everything here,” Bergdahl reportedly wrote in an email to his parents just prior to his capture. “These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid.”
“I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools,” Bergdahl concluded. “I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”
Yeah. Afghanistan would be much better off with the Taliban in charge where women are killed for refusing to obey their male masters and education of women is forbidden. A REAL war on women.

Just to make sure the military got the message, Obama sent National Security Adviser Susan Rice out on the Sunday news shows (the same Susan Rice who lied about an internet video being the cause of the Benghazi attack) to declare that Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.” Talk about an insult. Worse still, soldiers who upheld their oath to serve died while searching to rescue Bergdahl. Explain that to their families.

Meanwhile, Andrew Tahmooressi, veteran of two tours in Afghanistan and credited with saving the lives of fellow Marines took a wrong turn at the California/Mexico border and ended up nearly dying in a notorious Mexican prison. Obama hasn't done one thing to seek his release.

It's as if Obama is actually trying to destroy the moral of the U.S. military. Either that or he's the most incompetent Commander in Chief in modern history. or both!

UPDATE: Obama expected "euphoria" over terrorist swap for deserter. Are they really that out of touch? Even Obama's mainstream media defenders have been sharply critical of this action. Is this the scandal that sticks?

Six soldiers who died searching for Sgt. Bergdahl. Where's their White House meeting?
Mother of Darryn Andrews demands to know why her son died looking for a traitor! 

UPDATE: Video of Bergdahl release. The claim by the Obama Administration that they didn't have time to notify congress of the release of Gitmo terrorists because of Bergdahl's health falls apart when you see how well he appears in the video. Looks like the Taliban treats deserters quite well. But still, the Obama Administration will keep Bergdahl out of sight claiming the need for medical care. They certainly don't want him to speak in public and confirm what we've learned about him!
