GAO Oversight Report: Obama Administration Broke the Law by Freeing 5 Taliban Terrorists in Exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl


Barack Obama, The Law Breaker in Chief …

The GAO, Government Accountability Office, issued a report that concluded that the Obama Administration broke federal law when it released five Taliban prisoners from GITMO in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl without notifying Congress in advance. According to the GAO, the Pentagon “violated” the 2014 Department of Defense Appropriations Act “when it transferred five senior Taliban prisoners to Qatar without providing at least 30 days notice to certain congressional committees. The GAO also found that the DOD violated the “Antideficiency Act,” which prevents unauthorized government expenditures. As Hot Air opines, many Democrats in Congress spent much of the summer dismissing Republicans’ claims as partisan and even callous, preferring to focus on the return of an American soldier held captive rather than the politically expedient removal of the “Taliban Five” from American custody. Now we know what many had suspected and alleged … The Obama Administration broke the law.

The Washington Free Beacon:

The Obama administration violated federal law when it released five senior Taliban leaders from prison without notifying Congress, as is legally mandated, according to an investigation by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

The GAO concluded in a report issued Thursday that the Obama administration failed to provide proper notification of the Taliban release and illegally used taxpayer funds that were not appropriated to enable the inmate transfer, according to the report.

The Obama administration in May secretly struck a deal with the Taliban in Afghanistan to free from the Guantanamo Bay prison camp in Cuba five of its top leaders in exchange for the return of captured U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, who was later accused by fellow soldiers of having deserted the Army prior to his capture.

The Pentagon was found to have “violated” the 2014 Department of Defense Appropriations Act “when it transferred five individuals detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the nation of Qatar without providing at least 30 days notice to certain congressional committees,” according to the report.

Barack Obama 5 for 1 swap was already on the wrong side with the American people and their belief that it was wrong to release 5 senior Taliban individuals in exchange for what many believe to be a military deserter, now we find Obama is on the wrong side of the law as well.

      One would definitely question and pursue why it was so important to him to release these terrorists and put the whole world in danger. He knew he broke the law and it would make America and other countries very angry. It couldn’t be more obvious that obama’s misuse of power directly supports terrorism. He should be arrested, impeached, found guilty in a court of law and then imprisoned for the horrific, despicable things he has done to America.

      Why did he play crazy 8′s in the conference room at the White House during the bid laden invasion? What message was he sending to his terrorists friends? He didn’t want to see his muslim brother captured or killed. The man that was responsible for murdering men, women and children. He’s also stated in his speeches that 911 was our fault.

      He’s broken the law more than once, defied the Constitution, has lied to the American people time and time again. Pushed obamacare through and caused catastrophic problems.

      Our men in Benghazi asked for help and obama ignored them, resulting in their death. We could of and should of helped them. This is our Commander and Chief of the United States of America. What a sorry sack of shit!!!!

      obama(barry soetoro) was well aware of the problems rising in the middle east over a year or so ago but choose to ignore them.

      We need to remove him from office. Trash the trash and hold him accountable for all of his actions against our country.

      This is just one more thing that the law breaker in chief will have added to the list of impeachable offenses.

      When will the congress get over their fear of creating riots for proceeding with articles of impeachment?

      Hey blacks, why riot, obama is not a black man, he just calls himself that. Ya’ll have been deceived. He lied to you about representing himself as a black man. Blacks need to know that obama is predominately white, Arabic with only a meager 6.25% of him being black.

      50% White
      43.75% Arabic
      6.25% Black
      His father was only 12.5% black, the remainder being Arabic.

      obama is not America’s first black president.
