An existing -- show been going on fact will stick with this topic is there is a lot of interest in a lot of you all over the country really talking about the the prisoner swap a lot of different issues angles -- lot more questions and answers at this point. A one answer from looking for from the audiences the subject of the the -- ready opinion poll question of -- you believe in the case of -- now. Now was seen as they say the and they being the White House in the administration. Then he served with honor and distinction. Or do you believe. All of his platoon members believe -- about at least six of them who stand together saying the guy was definitely deserve it and they also stand together saying. He needs to be hand held -- hearing. And a court martial which would determine whether he was in the desert in case you're wondering desertion. Is actually -- Tom war. And I don't know whether you would consider this war I mean they called a war against terrorism. We don't have an official country on designated uniform that we in the identified as the enemy other -- that their enemy. Combatants and members of different terrorist organizations. If it would be construed as being. Doing time of war. The penalty maximum penalty would be death. Also life imprisonment could be there are several other. Degrees of punishment. The least of -- the least of which. Would be a dishonorable discharge. Forfeiture of all pay and allowances and reduced to lowest enlisted grade. And confinement. For two years. That is under article 85 of the UC NG GA the uniform code of military justice who you believe in this right now 79%. Cities that deserve a 21% saying they agree with a winehouse he did serve with honor in distinctions. 2601878866889087. Telephone line let's go to Tomas Tomas saw you on saint Charles avenue going saint Charles parish. I am essential Arabs -- ability and good. It -- was he got out in. The and that it. When you saw on Google. This way it would be what these people call war. Now day how many people did it take to get bit -- You know maybe two and 430. Why would make this guy an example would peacemakers in this -- we don't we -- from. How would go -- and the debate PX. 7000 people that bill that people drop but now -- like jump -- -- arms so we had to go down there again. Weak demand took -- eleven years. And -- that that that deserted maybe. If you happen in -- stated you -- that's gonna get blown out. As call that crop in the admissible peacemakers. And -- people every day there's a catastrophe. We need to do to keep on -- -- with the massacre Crist gets what were scrawled it would gonna make. It is Thomas let's assume the best -- well let's say that. He had a justified reason people walked and often would they said why -- one. What is at that point do you still feel good move to swap him for those five even if it was he was a models sold -- Would -- be removed and on behalf for the whole country in the whole world but around about -- family and friends -- understand that. We would do anything deceive which in Canada but I also understand if they -- decision that. We would knock in and negotiate form in that mansion because of what that the outcome would be. Well that's no matter what we -- -- -- and he did it. Which do you -- -- -- art degree temperatures and flies. Everything's cool and what would do this and this is. -- quarter in which he -- peacemakers. Our outlook -- to be peacemakers. The best we can't do it there's no way we can. Our programs 101000 people include and which. We went on the. -- Thomas thank you recall appreciated. I let's go now to see you lose them next looks like it was Joseph and Biloxi Mississippi Joseph thanks -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And good good I like the safe for the record there I don't think you're raised the. While alone you don't know Joseph you don't know me and I might have the white sheet back in the zone. You make that statement you don't know me these people listen to him and tell me banner. And we're just people just can't believe that that demand could be criticized. For what he does and not two years. You know you know look the thing reform. Our court and play -- -- president elect every Democrat vote for under that much he doesn't like the box got bigger ago. Well in this in this one in particular. I don't know I think that dude in the murder more accurately my banking be held accountable and you know out. They come and go wait and -- botnets and other but -- call an epic great saint. What I wanna know is that Albania for five years. But he knows -- speaker with peace singles by year's end up their mind though. And all that talk with the Obama care with you know like our step -- in people's stuff like that. Believe that turnaround is real and it's not stated they should all our rebel Taliban people is that then back over there to keep track of them. Do they need to do and right now -- wants crumbled it killed when there you know the Angel. And I understand -- engaged in combat but sometimes that happens. You know American did not hold it to stop all of you not think lately people were taken some because people -- you know now. The government has got to start being honest with that we need you know all the stuff in the -- to stop the government does that in their red folders sitting on the president's desk. That will never go out. And when he released it -- -- stop the ball blacked out they've been doing it for years even -- documents in Vietnam so much that black net it would never go out. So I got to believe that. -- believe that our government not just the president that our government can't beat that stupid -- slight left five people go without without yeah. Anything in return that. While hope you ride TO on hold their all chipped. With the explosive devices that when they get in the right spot right time and somebody can push click button on miles on a computer. And send them to go with those 69 -- you know. But I still think -- there just don't think that's it I don't know I don't give them as much credit as you do for maybe be in that slide -- that show. Not to blow them out by you know no -- ago could. Go somewhere in -- -- some people. We killed a tremendous heat over last year like to operate in. Leaders in the Albanian -- Taliban people. Dual honor and -- -- debate questionable. So I mean how other what other way. That we do to -- soon. Don't tell their members like that I hear a lot of people but -- -- playing like congress are competent to -- cable would air -- And what our troops opened there in just -- in their -- or. They make a lot in the needle and stuff. But there's -- way that we could be a little sneaky about you know what we have sent in the forces group precision attacks like that. I mean you know -- probably our base and. They aren't they that you think in about an announcement this program doesn't it on come with you on them just not as confident in. In issue you'll Gil thanks for the call. -- nation tonight will be right back after this time out got a bunch of us to get to -- Walter. Christian man -- in a lot of text messages -- in and a 7870 cast that vote opinion poll below web -- -- it -- that will be right. And good afternoon once again welcome back to the Friday edition of the thanked them to view filling in for Garland Robinette as usual on Fridays on garlands not only off on this Friday will be awful next week -- will be and to take care of the think tank for you from Monday through there as in I'll be back again next Friday. -- -- this -- we're talking about the Barrick Gold trade off of five Taliban prisoners from gitmo. What do you think about it and electronic future institute is one question who do you trust and believe we've got totally opposite ends of the spectrum. The White House in the administration says. That our -- served with honor and distinction. The guys in his unit. Who lived with who fought -- who searched for him. Says he was a dessert. 82% of you are taking this side of the platoon members. 18% saying no White House knows -- -- honor and distinction what do you. A stock to Jake in mid city and we got to -- as the one in mid city -- what do you think who do you believe in his. Absolutely believe that the -- -- -- who remember that talent and true but everything is. You know. A lot of people just that -- every bit -- memories because. Little by. He's got a gun collector probably most people even. Think you'll get involved people on cost probably twenty. They keep one part. Of what we most people know that most people at. -- Because we are so much we knew which people by the people so how do we deal with it. You know it. It is like people are able to war. -- -- -- -- -- -- So you kill me if you don't -- by people. What actually admitted. He. And America I mean do people help. Well -- what what do you suggest that we did what do you suggest we do with them do turn him loose side do week. Bring them to a military court and trying to. -- -- -- report in America back. -- -- -- it could debate that I don't like the Obama did it useful to go to school to congress don't like you know. But getting back to these five Carrick is what would she should we have brought him into a military court to a tribunal and -- a minute and look at the not guilty. Tell -- let him go but -- -- car. -- -- -- what put them to go through military recorder some type of court system it would be like the world so -- Secret so many different things would be different I don't think big -- important because what the -- -- regard the people at. We didn't kill my it guy that we are people or comics and kill and most people and -- We went to law it can't iiroc ran into you know the president didn't even make a deal to. It's fair while there -- Stupidest thing in England are Obama that he -- school. It was 11 continent and don't.

Setting at two calls from man to bill Walt is listening in Chris is listening. Chris has Walter edged out by about twenty seconds he was for -- go to Chris. Thank you on it Michael needed early bird gets the long. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- you know it's not like you know electrical torturing -- -- -- -- Yeah -- wanna -- or go with the soldiers in the field they have. The most accurate. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah tackle and got into probably the same group that are gone and been forty or so more months. Not to have been done. I don't trust president a liar. And then -- have to go with the soldiers their -- -- -- -- and I think the way marking. Down Guantanamo Bay where Purdue. They're 201. That we should back. Bring them accountable reverend -- secured one spot. The one better not -- shipment to track and say hey look at this is what -- due to return back to develop the. Chris sorry you did live up to you promised and not sound like you comment from a but you've got some good points you make some excellent points. -- -- I'm listening part thank you Politico. I'm a stay in men develop bring Walter in now he's weighed down you know lines seventy -- for the. -- real. The only get pepper has to. But. If the law. And an easier to win at least -- military action in Afghanistan we let all the people that captured on the field. Let go why -- why these captured on the back. No this is not a law. This is not a traditional war -- rules of engagement apply this is an enemy combatants this is terrorist. What I had -- -- -- comments from but I think he's sidestep in the law. 20. Lead ms. rice again in July that would been -- mean she's got this guy that was captured on the battlefield. Wait a minute now the guy that called the reporter dude he said that you know -- -- that had nothing to do with and guys. I don't -- change in the current. And -- -- the latest thing that they were discarded bird dog cannot. -- -- I believe the seven guys because they would believe it is right saying instruction on the battlefield. We needed to bring them -- a -- Social. But I think you need to go to jail what he's convicted. And you know because we lose 66. Our personnel. By trying to look forms you know there's a lot of problems there I'm just glad I don't have to figure out the right it does for everybody. -- -- the soldiers are saying they definitely there are a 100% sure that he was a dessert and if in fact -- that is the case yet he should spend some time and in and suffer the consequences in the punishment that goes along. With being convicted as a -- But let's say he's he was a model -- -- even not a model sort of let's say he got confused and he was disoriented. And he was in such a mental state that he wasn't really thinking clearly. What it's still have been a good trade even if he was not you know a -- opted to give up these five guys for him. -- well I mean it's. I think we need to bring on the whatever it took to bring them on the apron and it even if it meant money out five guys that. -- -- gonna go save banter but and what about. What about the harm to people that will come from the release of these five people. You've got to weigh that against Saban won Paris. Well at the spotlight -- that says deal. And he and -- bill. Line that you understand drones and that's some openness Obama does understand that he's used a lot of them.
