"They are notoriously slow to respond and frequently the only way that we can get the attention of the government and compel them to produce the records that we seek is by filing a lawsuit," he said. "It's a sad state of affairs, but their instinct is to blow things off and be non-responsive, but the surefire way of getting their attention is having them appear in front of a federal district court judge and explain why they're not cooperating."
Farrell called the swap a "crazy, bad decision" by the Obama administration that clearly violated the law by not providing Congress with sufficient notice about their plans to release the Taliban leaders.
Thank goodness for Judicial Watch. They have done a great job in pursuing legal action to obtain information that not even Congress could obtain. It is important to obtain the information on the illegal actions taken by the Obama regime in the Bergdahl incident. However, we do not need the information to know that the act was not legal nor do we need the information to understand the motive for this preposterous swap. The law requires Obama to notify congress on the releases of prisoners in Guantanamo, and he did not. This is not in dispute. Obama broke the law.
The motive for the exchange is just as clear. Obama said he would close Guantanamo the first day he lied that he would uphold the constitution. This exchange had nothing to do with Bergdahl. It could have been any American soldier; yes even one that was not a deserter. The exchange was all about the Jihadists. Obama saw away he could release five of the worst in Guantanamo and he was not about to forgo that opportunity.
The number five was important but not as important as to whom the five were. These were five of the worst. By releasing five, and five of the worst, it accomplished two of Obama’s goals. First it lessened the need to keep Guantanamo open, not just due to numbers but also due to who these actual prisoners were. The other goal it accomplished for Obama, and this goal is less clear to those who refuse to admit who Obama really is, was to enable the Jihadists in their endeavor to cause terror and chaos. The more terror and chaos that is created, the less attention the implementation of Obama’s Marxist policies receives. In addition, the terror and chaos helps to hinder the United States in what Obama sees as the evil imperialistic endeavors of the United States. This is an important factor in Obama’s endeavor to fundamentally transform the United States.
