The Taliban Fighters Bummed - He Didn't Even Say Goodbye

BI- The Taliban fighters who handed off Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl to a Special Forces team during a prisoner exchange in eastern Afghanistan were reportedly bummed they didn't stick around long enough to exchange pleasantries.
An interesting
report by the New York Times' Matthew Rosenberg goes into detail about the now-viral Taliban propaganda video of the exchange, but one passage stuck out in particular.

Rosenberg Writes:
But once on the ground, the Americans, to the dismay of the Taliban, proved uninterested in any pomp. They rushed through the encounter and did not stop to talk or exchange polite greetings, as is customary in Afghanistan, even during hostage releases. The narrator complained that they had managed to shake hands with only two of the Americans, and that one of them had hastily shoved his left hand forward, considered a particularly rude gesture in Afghanistan.
“We wanted to convey some messages to them via the interpreter, but they didn’t spend much time with us,” a Taliban fighter said on the video speculating that perhaps the Americans were too frightened to linger. “They even didn’t let us shake hands with the soldier and say goodbye, and they behaved in a very simple way....."

Still, you can't really blame the American rescuers for wanting to get out of there quick, especially with Taliban fighters standing on a hillside overlooking the helicopter and heavily armed with RPG's.

And another point:  if Sgt.Bergdahl was not a deserter/collaborator, and indeed the Prisoner of War that the Obama administration claims he was, why would his captors be expecting hugs and kisses and a warm goodbye?

Okay all You Sarcastic Bastids....Time to Bump Up Your Game

It seems the same Secret Service that gets drunk and parties with hookers in foreign countries doesn't have enough to do these days and plans to purchase software to watch users of social networks in real time, according to contract documents. In a work order posted on Monday, the agency details information the tool will collect -- ranging from emotions of Internet users to old Twitter messages, and  capabilities will include “sentiment analysis,” "influencer identification, and  “ability to detect sarcasm."

The automated technology will "synthesize large sets of social media data" and "identify statistical pattern analysis" among other objectives.The tool also will have the "functionality to send notifications to users,” they said.

I certainly hope they enjoy a good piece of sarcasm when they see it!

Details of Gitmo Prisoner Exchange Agreement Leaked

(MFNS) Washington- Much speculation has risen as to the details of the Gitmo prisoners swap, why and for what reason would the administration release such dangerous men at this time.  State Dept. moles have leaked to Middle Finger News scant details of the agreement made with the Gitmo 5 in accordance with their release.

We have learned that the White House pressured the Labor Dept. for a promise of a 700 million dollar loan to the 5 detainees to help set them up in gainful employment in their home countries in turn for an agreement not to return in anyway to the battlefield.  Mullah Norullah Norrl, the only literate of the group penned his signature to the 17 page agreement and and gave his word to abide by that agreement. Other details remain secret.

When informed of the leak, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told us she had severe reservations about the release of such dangerous Taliban Leaders, but that her major concern was her fear the 5 will unfairly gouge their customers with artificially high prices.

Ethics Complaint Filed Against Harry Reid

The Hill
"Tea Party Patriots have filed a complaint against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) with the Senate Ethics Committee to protest his repeated attacks against Charles and David Koch."
"Jenny Beth Martin, the co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, filed the complaint, charging Reid with “unlawfully and unethically targeting private citizens.” The complaint further states that Reid “has misused Senate staff or resources to engage in partisan campaign activity in violation of federal laws and Senate rules.”
“It’s been generations since a member of the Senate has abused the power of his office to attack private citizens the way Harry Reid has sought to vilify Charles and David Koch,” Martin said. "Reid’s tactics are “nothing more than a continuation of the thuggish intimidation campaign mounted by the Obama administration to target and silence people and organizations Democrats disagree with.”
"The Louisiana Republican Party asked the Senate ethics panel, officially known as the Select Committee on Ethics, in April to investigate Reid’s use of his official website and Twitter account to criticize the Koch brothers."

High Strangeness at Obama Presser

At yesterday’s evening presser, Bowe Bergdahl’s father's first words to him praised Allah when he said “Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim” —which means “In the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Compassionate.”

Bergdahl went on to say his son should listen to the “devoted team” that’s working with him in Germany. “Listen to their instructions. Listen to them. They are hand-picked people."

Just what kind of instructions is he being given? Me thinks there is a whole lot more about this family and the story behind this strange incident and release of Bowe Bergdahl yet to come.

Just Another Damn Obama Lie

"The U.S. has a long-standing policy of not negotiating with terrorists and I'm deeply troubled the Obama administration not only broke this policy, but also did so without the notification or consent of Congress, as required by law.
"Six months ago, I was assured by the administration they would not consider the release of these senior Taliban leaders without consulting Congress. Today, they violated that commitment. The security assurances the United States has been given regarding these terrorists is feeble at best, and I fear it is only a matter of time before they resume their terrorist activities."Sen. Saxby Chambliss 
How foolish can this administration be? These men are not honorable soldiers; they are dangerous terrorists and the President should be treating them as such. He sent them home heroes, and got a traitor in return.

Middle Finger News Service in Negotiations for Possible Reality Program Network

Press Release:
New Orleans, La. - The Middle Finger News Network today announced it's intentions of  pursuing new ventures to enhance it's massive corporate profits going forward in 2015 by possibly entering the Reality TV market.

The initiative came from a side project of MFNS's ace correspondent Earl of Taint, who has developed a series called "So You Want to Be an American?" set on the nations southern border. But while the series was not developed for MFNS and is  initially being offered to Univision TV network, we believe with acquisition of his series, we can build a successful all-reality network with our  present coverage of MFN by local access cable programing that already reaches tens of hundreds of people across the southern border.

Other suggestions for reality programing possibilities are timely shows such as  "Survivor Jihad " set in the beautiful exotic wilds of Islamic Africa.

Talks have already begun with venture capitalist and producer, Emo Murdoch, for funding and the MFNS negotiating team from Chicago will lean on meet with Earl about bidding for his series early next week.
