(WASHINGTON, DC) – A petition to bring home an Idaho soldier held captive in Afghanistan is making its way around the country.  The White House petition needs 100,000 signatures by Feb. 16 before President Barack Obama will respond to it. Supporters are asking the president to “use all means available” to negotiate the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Video evidence from earlier this month showed Bergdahl alive. He was captured by the Taliban in June 2009 after walking off his base. Bergdahl had emailed his parents at the time suggesting he was disillusioned and considering desertion.

    I wonder how many conservatives who are now going ballistic over the release are on that petition urging “all means available?”

    Wouldn’t that be an interesting angle to cover, Newstalk?

    But I guess you don’t want to appear to be unbiased. And hypocrisy and anti-American sentiment on the right doesn’t interest you.
