After What Allen West Just Did, Obama Might Be Wishing He’d Never Heard Of Bowe Bergdahl

Calls for impeachment hearings against Barack Obama have been common throughout his presidency, which has been plagued by numerous scandals and allegations of increasingly brazen cover-ups.

The latest controversy surrounding the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has given those proponents even more ammunition to use against Obama. It has also brought new voices in favor of impeachment to the debate.

Among those are former U.S. Army Lt. Col. Allen West, who explained Tuesday why he feels the circumstances surrounding Bergdahl’s release from Taliban custody likely warrant impeachment. He listed a number of factors that helped him reach this opinion.

First, he explained that Obama unilaterally declared unconstitutional a measure he himself signed into law requiring he give 30 days’ notice to Congress before releasing Guantanamo Bay prisoners.

“Once again Obama used selective discretion as to what law he feels he must adhere to – in this case it has severe ramifications for our national security,” West wrote.

The White House negotiated with the Taliban, he continued, which is a “non-state, non-uniform terrorist organization.”

Furthermore, when choosing which five terrorists he would allow to be exchanged for Bergdahl, West noted he picked a quintet of the most dangerous terrorists in the facility.

“There are some 141 detainees at GITMO,” he wrote. “The five released were senior Taliban officials, basically members of Mullah Omar’s inner circle. If we wanted to release detainees in exchange for Bergahl, there were many others to choose from. Why these?”

The recidivism rate among released terrorists has doubled, he wrote; and even administration sources up to and including Obama admit these five released prisoners pose a real threat to American safety.

In exchange for setting such dangerous individuals free, West concluded that America received in return a “deserter, who by his own self-proclamation harbors anti-American sentiments.”

While Obama claims that “no American should be left behind,” West points out the apparent hypocrisy of that statement, wondering if he has “forgotten about Benghazi and Marine SGT Tahmooressi.”

West concludes by declaring Obama’s “unilateral negotiations with terrorists and the ensuing release of their key leadership without consult – mandated by law – with the U.S. Congress represents high crimes and misdemeanors, an impeachable offense.”

He went on to call on congressional leaders “to draft articles of impeachment as no one is above the law in America.”

    Thank you Lt.Col. West for coming out to have Obama Impeached for what he did to this country.

    • Big Dog 913 , I'm afraid Col Allen West is a little late to the party . You see Col. West was confounded with the fact that the birth certificate put on the White House website was a forgery by lead investigator M .Zullo of the cold case posse from Arizona . Col West said at the time he could not get involved because he had political ambitions to pursue . Now does that sound like someone who has the best interest of our country at hart or just someone looking out for number one ?

        Prove it.

      • Linda From NY says:

        Hi Charles,
        You are right, I remember reading that too over a year ago about West, how he did NOT want to get involve in impeaching Obama. Perhaps people are tired of Obama's lawlessness or is it because the mid elections are coming up and they want the votes.

        For whatever the reason it is good to see people finally speaking out of what this evil man is doing. However they keep talking about impeachment, Obama is a fraud who has never qualified for Presidency. He must be remove out of the White House and investigated for crimes against America

        All Congress has to do is open up those sealed records and the truth will come out and put this criminal where he belongs.

        Why Congress does not demand to have those sealed records open? perhaps Congress may be intimidated, Obama and his minions may have something over their heads, just saying, with this administration anything is possible after all they are the dirtiest bunch.

        • Linda I agree Congress should simply OPEN his SEALED records, I mean it’s not as if the are sealed in a Vault, and even if they are I am sure Congress can get their hands on enough dynamite to blow it wide open. If they are simply sealed in an envelope I have a nice sharp knife they can use

        • Edwardkoziol says:

          Linda the only reason congress doesn't act to seek the sealed records is because they don't want to be called racist by the NAACP.To impeach the president you have to control the senate and get rid of that little gnome named Dingy Harry.If only our media would grow a pair and hold Sambo accountable for his stupid decisions

    • Edwardkoziol says:

      Big Dog 913 I agree and thank god our military had a leader like Col West who thought more of his men then political correctness.He saved our soldiers life with his action.

  2. Edwardkoziol says:

    Col.Allen West is right now we have to have those cowardly republicans grow a set of balls including the women republicans to start impeachment.We also need a new speaker who is not a golfing buddy of the evil muslim America calls president.

  3. If there is even the slightest chance to impeach Obama i suggest we take it.

  4. greg (Michigan) says:

    here's an idea : make it an election go / no go for every Congressperson this November, 'Impeach or loose at the voting booth' ……. which also goes for up to 1/3 of the Senate up for reelection. In the Senate, those running in opposition to a sitting Senator : "if elected, further impeachment processes pertaining to Obama will be vigorously supported come January, including multiple hearings re: Hillary and Holder."

  5. abellyfull says:

    Hell, Col. it's about time you call for impeachment…won't get rid of him anyway without the Senate votes. Correction Col…BO qualified his statement "no American should be left behind.” Insert "in uniform" between American and should. Under that technicality, the Benghazi 4 and SGT Tahmooressi aren't included….they weren't in uniform. Boy, the devil is a sly one, huh?

  6. bobiverson says:

    wait just a minute , i SAW master Obama ON T. V. saying to the world he had confered at length with congress on this matter now you know this has to be the TRUTH it WAS ON T. V.

  7. Alex McCracken says:

    where the hell is our Republican leadership? They need to grow some gonads or just get the hell out of the way and let some one with some balls take their place. this a– hole should never have been allowed to assume the office of POTUS any way…

  8. Alex McCracken says:

    where the hell is our Republican leadership? They need to grow some gonads or just get the hell out of the way and let some one with some balls take their place. this a– hole should never have been allowed to assume the office of POTUS any way. He is a fraud,communist, and radical Muslim.

  9. Think there is a closed door meeting being held right now about this topic. Those yellow-belied congressmen need to grow a spine and either start impeachment proceedings right now or arrest o

  10. mutantone says:

    what about the other five released to establish the deal with the terrorist did Obama get congressional approval to release them?
    we need to bring charges of treason against this traitor for supply aid and comfort to the terrorist groups in the guise of his support funding and arming of Muslim Brotherhood affiliates, placing them inside our government in the White House, the Office of the Secretary of State, and Homeland Security. Obama and his administration, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry as well have carried out various overt acts of Treason and now the release of ten know terrorist leaders in exchange for a deserter- traitor.
    it is time to clean them out of our government period.

  11. Lt. Col., I am certainly glad we have you on our side and am a proud conservative from Central Florida.

  12. MuslimLuvChrist says:

    obama has aided and abetted the enemy for the last time, start the hearings


  14. vincent marquette says:

    Obama is no good. Why is he still in office? Need to get rid of him now.

  15. jb80538 says:

    Well, I wish I'd never heard of barrack obama!

  16. Evermyrtle says:

    i continue to hear impeachment and know nobody has ever deserved it more, still nothing happens. Will any attempt ever made tp give Obama what eh deserves???

    • I couldn't agree more!

    • No unfortunately it is because he is African American, and they will Never impeach the 1st black President! Like I said before he could get caught on high definition camera smoking crack ala Marion Barry and he'd still be the Prez the next day and so on……..

  17. What does it matter? How many more times is this man, I refuse to call him President going to do this stuff? He should of already been impeached, so again why bother? Nothing and I mean NOTHING is going to be done! All this moaning, complaining, has gotten us where, he is still in office! As much as I hate to say it this will blow over just like the other 100 things he has done wrong and he'll still be in office come Jan 2016!! You better pray he doesn't decide to stay for another term, and don't say it cannot happen, look at his track record so far!

    • Your right about the dirt, he is full of dirt! I never thought in my life time that there would be another President w/ a lower approval rating than Jimmy Carter. Man Obama makes Carter look like Ronald Reagan!

  18. It's bad enough to trade even ONE of these criminals for another criminal, let alone 5. Why haven't I heard anything about the 1 for 5 part? As a matter of fact, why did they even bother to pretend to trade at all? –barry might as well just open the gates at Gitmo and let 'em all out. Probably will, he does as he wants and our complicit communist congress is just a distraction. They might as well skip the dog and pony show, very few (far less than what we are told) people are fooled by their yakking or their actions. Treason (for those in CONgress who are actually citizens) and espionage (for those that aren't) is what we should be looking for. I want to see jail time at the very least, not wrist slapping.

  19. Cody Hill says:

    obama is the most dangerous terrorist and we are allowing him to let his terrorist buddys out of prison.

  20. Alienative says:

    Just in case we forgot the definition of impeachment:

  21. Obama is getting away with his power grabs, lawlessness and assaults on our Constitution because he thinks that NO ONE will have the courage to impeach the first HALF black POTUS. I believe he is acting so badly as a DARE to America to touch him. He is pure EVIL.

  22. iamchattycathy says:

    Obama is the greatest risk of all, He's a terrorist to his own Country!

  23. OBary sotero released his 5 Muslim brothers but cannot get the marine out of mexican prison? No when you are too busy playing golf and even that is a joke. That afican should be sent to Guantanamo for 100 years and them shipped back to africa for dirt where he came from and belongs
