A U.S. Marine wallows in a Mexican prison for months and President Obama does nothing. Yet he trades five of the worst terrorists in Gitmo for an alleged deserter. The reason given is “no soldier left behind.” Really! What about the Marine in Mexico?

Based upon his treatment of the military (the VA scandal and other indignities too numerous to mention), it seems that Obama couldn't care less about any soldier. So why was the terrorists trade made? And, more importantly, was it traitorous (aiding and abetting the enemy)?
