The release of Bowe Bergdahl cost the release of 5 Taliban members who had previously been housed at Guantanamo.
A steep price to pay given what we received in exchange.

The release of 3 Americans from North Korea came about as a result of some Tweets from President Trump.

Not quite.

The release of 3 Americans from North Korea came about as a result of increasing military pressure and the tightening of sanctions.

These folks literally cost billions.

Let us hope we get a little bit more than 3 prisoners for all the money that is being spent to bring peace to the region. I'm optimistic, but we'll see.

..and a CIC that seemed plausibly willing to use that force.

I've made this point before: The gear costs billions to keep maintained and to hand - even if she's in port doing nothing. Fixed costs. She might as well be doing something plus it keeps her crew honed.

Media talking point 5-10-18

"The return of the Korean-American hostages was very orchestrated" :roll:

Heard the EXACTLY same thing on NBC and NPR.

Translation: Trump and Pence and even Melania went out to greet them at 3 AM Washington time at Joint Base Andrews.

Ummmm...Obama had a ceremony in the Rose Garden for Bergdhals parents and the entire WH Press Corps ...and then the military court martialed the dumb ass POS.

Just another example for why NBC & NPR sound like a bunch of idiots.

Chalk up one more for the deplorables!
