Gold Star mom: 'This guy was worth my son's life?'
Sondra Andrews' son, 2nd Lt. Darryn Andrews, is one of six soldiers killed reportedly while searching for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
The sergeant's return to captivity has stirred "very raw emotions."
"It gets really hurtful when I think, this guy was worth my son's life? My son who was patriotic? Who was a true soldier? Who defended his country with his life?" Andrews told Army Times via phone on Monday. "That guy was worth that? I don't think so."
Andrews also was upset to hear the U.S. government agreed to release five prisoners from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Bergdahl's freedom.
"I bet you anything there were soldiers killed or wounded capturing those five guys," she said. "So what does that do for their sacrifice? They sacrificed for nothing, because they turned right around and let them go."
You know, I've said it before, Barack Obama is really the president Richard Nixon always wanted to be. You know, he's been allowed to act unilaterally in a way that we've fought for decades.
Obama could have successfully, and with some legitimate justification, blamed the VA scandal on the pre-existing culture of corruption there. But this Bergdahl thing is 100% All Barry, All The Time. He -personally- created this prisoner swap and ramrodded it to completion over the shrieks of "DON"T DO IT!!!" from the military, the spooks, and apparently his own propaganda apparatus. He arranged to get rid of a scandal about government screwing over the military... by screwing over the military. Genius!
