Wink He Went To School Where?

You may recall that a few weeks ago, Your President spoke of three former
Presidents making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, "much like this swap" he said convincingly. CNN carried this quote, "This is what happens at the end of wars."

Your President boasted when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Deserter for five vicious Taliban terrorists. "That was true for George Washington, that was true for Abraham Lincoln and that was true for FDR. That’s been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back...and that’s the right thing to do."

Really?

That statement blatantly demonstrates that the most powerful man in the World and two term President of the United States lacks even a
grade school level of knowledge of American History; specifically, history as it relates to three of our most famous presidents and it
demonstrates again that we have essentially elected a foreigner who has no understanding of the very country that he reigns supreme over. Then again, he was educated at an IVY League school so you can't expect too much!!

What's wrong with his statements?

Let's keep it simple-- EVERYTHING is wrong!

1. George Washington did not become president until six years after the Revolutionary War ended in 1783. By 1789 there were no longer any prisoners for him to exchange.

2. Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in mid-April of 1865. The Civil War ended the following month. He was still dead at that time. No deals were made to exchange prisoners after the war. All prisoners were simply freed.

3. FDR died of a stroke before the end of WWII. Like Lincoln, he stayed dead after the war so he couldn't do what this jerk says he did. You'll recall that Harry S. Truman made the decision to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan, ending World War II. He made no deals for prisoners. We went in and released them when necessary.

4. None of the Presidents that Obama noted were in office at the ends of those wars, making it impossible for them to make any sort of
prisoner swaps, let alone the 5 for 1, plus unspecified cash, for a deserter and traitor by our "57 States" president.

5. It should be pointed out that countless deserters and traitors were shot or hung during all three of the aforementioned wars. What amazes one even more than the ignorance of the President is that he has managed to surround himself with a staff that is just as
clueless ... or willing, as the media are, to cover for his dumb lying rhetoric and behavior!

P.S. Obama mentioned while being interviewed on Super Bowl Sunday while in the White house kitchen, that George Washington drank beer in the White House when he was president.


George Washington never lived in the White House; it wasn't built yet.

I have to give Obama credit! He has accomplished almost everything on his agenda. He is doing his level best to weaken or destroy the U.S. to the point that some of his Muslim brothers can one day over run the U.S.

No major argument here but I'm wondering about traitors or deserters put to death after or during the second world war I only remember Private Slovich or some name close to that. Maybe shot on the battlefield that was published ?

Per Wikipedia:

"The military of the United States executed 160 soldiers and other members of the armed forces between 1942 and 1961 (these figures do not include German prisoners of war, war criminals, spies, and saboteurs executed by U.S. military authorities between 1942 and 1951). There have been no military executions since 1961 although the death penalty is still a possible punishment for several crimes under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Of these executions, 157 were carried out by the United States Army. The United States Air Force conducted the three remaining executions, one in 1950 and two in 1954. The U.S. Navy has not executed anyone since 1849. The United States Army had previously executed a total of 36 soldiers during the First World War, all taking place by hanging between 5 November 1917 and 20 June 1919. Eleven of these hangings were performed in France while the remaining 25 were carried out in continental United States.

Of the total, 106 were executed for murder (including 21 involving rape), 53 for rape and one (Eddie Slovik) for desertion."
