Would you ever have imagined collective madness like this after 9/11?

Obama compared his actions to Washington and Lincoln.
Barry Soetoro aka Hussein Obama on Tuesday strongly defended his decision to release five Gitmo detainees to the Taliban in exchange for the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdah.
Abdullah Bergdahl should be tried for treason. Obama should be investigated in order to determine how much of this he knew before he traded the Taliban jihadis for Bergdahl, and if necessary, tried as well. But that won’t happen. A teary-eyed Boehner will explain that the five jihadis just had to be traded for Bergdahl, and while he would have preferred to send back just four, he will settle.

Given Obama’s Muslim upbringing in Indonesia, where he attended an Islamic school, he is likely to recognizeÂ this phraseÂ that was heard in the Rose Garden when he paraded the parents of deserter Bowe Bergdahl for the cameras after trading five top terrorists to get him back from the Taliban:
At the end of the brief event, the soldier’s father, Bob Bergdahl, recited the most frequent phrase in the Koran â€” “Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim” â€”which means“In the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Compassionate.”
Look how it brought a smile to Obama’s lips in the Rose Garden:
“What none of these media is reporting is that the father’s (SGT Bowe Bergdahl’s father Bob) first words at the WH were in Arabic – those words were “bism allah alrahman alraheem” – which means “in the name of Allah the most gracious and most merciful” – these are the opening words of every chapter of the Qur’an except one (the chapter of the sword – the 9th) – by uttering these words on the grounds of the WH, Bergdahl (the father) sanctified the WH and claimed it for Islam. There is no question but POTUS knows this.”
Prior to his assent to power, Obama delighted liberals by indulging in fond reminiscences of hearing the Muslim call to prayer in his youth. CrowedÂ Nicholas KristofÂ of the odious New York Times back in 2007:
Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”
Praising Allah in Arabic at the White House after five worst-of-the-worst Islamic terrorists have rejoined the fight against the West may sound prettier still to his ears.
How far the disease known as liberalism has caused us to fall, and how quickly. AsÂ Feral Irishmanasks, “Would you ever have imagined a scene like this after 9/11?”
