ANALYSIS/OPINION:

A U.S. Marine languishes in a Mexican prison for months and President Obama does nothing. Yet he trades five of the worst terrorists in Guantanamo Bay for a deserter. The reason given: “No soldier left behind.” Really? What about the Marine in Mexico?

Based upon his treatment of the military (the Veterans Administration scandal and other indignities too numerous to mention in this space), it seems that Mr. Obama could not care less about any soldier. So why was the terrorist trade made? More importantly, was it traitorous (aiding and abetting the enemy)?
