, , , ,

http://twitter.com/#!/UsmcGirl3381/status/473163551755223040 Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), who served in Afghanistan and Iraq, is not pleased at all with the administration for releasing five Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay. As Twitchy reported, their release was in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who had been held by the Taliban since 2009. http://twitter.com/#!/Alankota/status/473113894907826176 http://twitter.com/#!/Lion_LAM/status/473160866691420162 National Review has video of […]
