A Daughters Heartbreak-Learning the Taliban Leader Responsible for her Dad’s Death Freed in Exchange for Bowe Bergdahl

A Daughters Heartbreak-Learning the Taliban Leader Responsible for her Dad’s Death Freed in Exchange for Bowe Bergdahl

 

Imagine that the father that you grew up with and loved, was instead suddenly snatched from you- murdered- when you were only 9 years old. But, the silver lining was justice. The killer, the dangerous man who took your father, was safely locked away from all other people and could never hurt again. Then, you get to see on the news that the Commander-in-Chief has orchestrated his release from prison.

From the article:

‘As a whole, my family was extremely upset and saddened that our government would do something like this, especially in light of the fact that it seems that people in the intelligence community are fairly united in their belief that these terrorists are likely to seek to further harm Americans in the future.’

She said she still cannot understand why the county that her father fought for would release the man responsible for his death.

‘I do not believe that it was the right move by the administration,’ she added. ‘You cannot release someone of such a high caliber within the Taliban community and expect him to suddenly emerge as a peaceful being.’

Her father, who had served in the Marines for eight years before he joined the CIA, was 32 when he died at the Qala-i-Jangi compound near Mazari Sharit in northern Afghanistan early in the war.

Obviously, any family would be offended by both the killer of their spouse/father being set free, and the fact that Obama chose to negotiate with terrorists. This was an act of treason committed by the President and the family has every reason to be outraged. We support you, Spann Family.
