Personally, I believe a prosecutor could make an excellent case that Obama committed treason when he swapped deserter and probable defector Bowe Bergdahl for five top Taliban terrorists. Reasonable people might disagree. But we can all agree that he broke the law:
President Obama violated a “clear and unambiguous” law when he released five Guantanamo Bay detainees in exchange for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the Government Accountability Office reported Thursday.
“[The Department of Defense] violated section 8111 because it did not notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the transfer,” the GAO report said. “In addition, because DOD used appropriated funds to carry out the transfer when no money was available for that purpose, DOD violated the Antideficiency Act. The Antideficiency Act prohibits federal agencies from incurring obligations exceeding an amount available in an appropriation.”
Unfortunately, this is no longer a nation governed by laws. Instead it is governed by Hope & Change made flesh in the form of Obama, leaving him free to impose whatever dictates might advance his inscrutable objectives.
