    How many of you know that the Taliban just released a video of a captive American soldier? I guess it would tarnish Obama's image as Commander in Chief so nobody's interested.


    This guy has been a captive since June....and during the Bush presidency this would be the lead story....but hardly a peep these days. The guy has been there long enough to grow a beard. Seems the Obama Administration has forgotten about him. He's CIC yet he doesn't seem to care about an American who's a POW as we speak. I was wondering why he hasn't given a speech about it lately.



    I'm just trying to point out the obvious double-standard of the MSM but after starting this thread I realized that Obama hasn't said shit about it.

    You mean why hasn't the left and MSM blamed Obama for it like they did Bush? Why would they? After all, the left and MSM elected the idiot.

    It's just a matter of time before the 'great one' takes over the media - completely. Hugo Chavez anyone?

    omg...this is just too stupid..the soldier may have joined the taliban...i would think any negiociations would be behind the scenes....this is hardly a partisan issue...but yall will devil it to death...

    that said...if i were ruling the damn country....i would not sleep at night till i found him and brought him home..if he deserted...deal with that...when he is home...pow/mia's should be searched for and accounted for....i think recovery of pows....is a mission of the upmost importance...

    So you assume everyone knows this.....that just too stupid.

    I remember that during the Bush years the press would be trumpeting any dip-shit that spoke up against Bush.

    Ether way they would try to use it to turn us against the war.

    Obama broadcasts to the world he's gonna attack Kandahar in June yet he won't say shit about one of our POWs because it may give away some big secret.

    Come on!!:cuckoo:

    This guy or any American POW is the last thing on Obama's mind.

    o i think it is very thin ice...i would hope that they are negociating behind the scenes...should he say something...i dont know....i too, have major qualms about the fact that no one is mentioning...the wars are still going on....that he is wanting to drill off the east coast...no one lauds the death toll..the numbers are not on the news daily...mud i have questioned why that is ...on here before...i have been truly disappointed in obama's first year and mal aint looking good for this year so far...

    he has clay feet...i dont give a mal about him saying we wont use nukes....fuck all...i can tell you i wont hit you upside the head with a pool stick....but i assure you ...i will hold on to said pool stick
