Every since taking office in 2008, President Barack Obama has been called a “traitor” and “un-American” by many of his detractors for the failed foreign policy he put forward during his tenure as President of the United States.While Obama was never formally charged by any judicial entity as being an actual traitor, his actions in Russia, Iran, Israel, and in dealing with Islamic terrorists (negotiating with them), made a legitimate case for being labeled as a modern-day Benedict Arnold.
Just take the case of Sgt. Berg Bergdahl, wh0 Obama traded his freedom for five hardened and sworn Islamist Taliban fighters with American blood on their hands.
Now Obama has commuted the prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, the Army Private that leaked highly sensitive government information to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.
Congressional Democrats are not saying much about Obama’s pardoning of Manning, even if they disagree with the move. Republicans on the other hand are up in arms over Manning’s pardon, especially U.S. Senators Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, and Marco Rubio.
Rubio laid a smack down on Obama’s Manning pardon, saying that Obama “sided” against US Military personnel.
“Private Manning was an Army intelligence analyst who stole a massive cache of highly classified government secrets and purposely leaked them to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks…
“Private Manning violated an oath as a member of the U.S. military and endangered the lives of fellow servicemembers and individuals in contact with the U.S. government around the world. Private Manning further aided our enemies by disclosing highly classified sources and methods our intelligence professionals rely on to obtain secrets in defense of our nation. It is shameful that President Obama is siding with lawbreakers and the ACLU against the men and women who work every day to defend our nation and safeguard U.S. government secrets.”-Sen. Marco Rubio
