Obama Lacks Grade School Level U.S. History

Where did President Obama study American History? 

 In June 2014, President Obama spoke of three former Presidents  making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, "much like his swap" he said convincingly. CNS carried this quote, "This is what happens at the end of wars," President Barack Obama boasted when he was asked about swapping American Army  Sgt. Bergdahl, a Deserter, for five vicious Taliban terrorists.                                                                                               

Obama then said, "That was true for George Washington... That was true for Abraham Lincoln and  that was true for FDR. That's been true of every combat situation, that  at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back. And that’s the right thing to do."

Really? Where did this guy study American history, his class in Indonesia?

That statement blatantly demonstrates that the most powerful man in the  World and two term President of the United States lacks even a grade school level of knowledge of American History; specifically, history as  it relates to three of his rather critical predecessors. It shows that we have essentially twice elected a foreigner who has no understanding of the very country over which he thinks he reigns supreme.

It also revealed how Obama's made grievous errors in judgment by concluding that:

1) The war is over and

2) Obama was engaging in a prisoner exchange like those examples among his list of stellar leaders. 

If one looks into the actual historical facts just a little, the glaring lack of truth is appalling :

The Revolutionary War ended in 1783. George Washington did not become president until six years later in 1789. Any prisoner negotiations had already been completed.

Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in mid April of 1865. The Civil War ended the following month. He was still dead at that time. No deals were made to exchange prisoners after the war. All prisoners were simply freed.

FDR died of a stroke April 12, 1945 before the end of WWII September 2, 1945. President Harry S. Truman made the decision to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan on Hiroshima, August 6 and Nagasaki, August 7, 1945 ending World War II. We made no deals for prisoners then. We went in and released them wherever necessary.

If any Conservative President had made such an uninformed statement we'd never hear the end of it.

NOTE: None of the Presidents that Obama said were in office at the ends of those wars, making it impossible for them to make any sort of  prisoner swaps, let alone the Sgt. Bergdahl swap 5 for 1; plus unspecified cash for a  deserter.

It should be pointed out that countless deserters and traitors were shot or hung during all three of the aforementioned wars...

The Washington Post reported, "Ralph Peters, a retired lieutenant colonel and intelligence officer, wrote in National Review that a 'fundamental culture clash' exists between the president's team and those in the armed forces, as reflected by (national security adviser Susan) Rice's remarks on Bergdahl's honor."

"Both President Obama and Ms. Rice seem to think that the crime of desertion in wartime is kind of like skipping class," Peters wrote. "They have no idea of how great a sin desertion in the face of the enemy is to those in our military. The only worse sin is to side actively with the enemy and kill your brothers in arms. This is not sleeping in on Monday morning and ducking Gender Studies 101."

Contrary to Obama and Ms. Rice gushing glowingly about Sgt. Bergdahl's honor, the Army apparently doesn't agree. It has just been announced in late January, 2015 that a court marshal trial is scheduled for Sgt. Bergdahl--that's a home-run for our American team of soldiers! 

What amazes even more than the ignorance of the President is that he has somehow managed to surround himself with a staff that is just as clueless--Hello Valerie Jarrett, Sr. Advisor to the President unelected official running the whole white house operations with really no special experience or extraordinary training at that level of management acumen, just Chicago-style rough and tumble political chicanery with some N.Y. Tammany Hall Union style democrat corruption, patronage and graft.
