Obama continues with his poor foreign policy judgments

Has anyone else noticed the piss poor choices Obama has made propping up questionable, to say the least, actors when it comes to his foreign policy?
Like his support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt when it was plain the Egyptian people didn't want them in power or the way he has marginalized Israel.
How about the way he placates the mullahs in Iran which makes the other middle eastern countries nervous?
How about his arming of Al Qaeda terrorists in Libya?

Here he is again making deals with the Taliban to free what is a pretty sketchy soldier to bring him home to what appears to a Taliban sympathizer in his father.

Fellow soldiers call Bowe Bergdahl a deserter, not a hero
(CNN) -- The sense of pride expressed by officials of the Obama administration at the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is not shared by many of those who served with him -- veterans and soldiers who call him a deserter whose "selfish act" ended up costing the lives of better men.
"I was pissed off then and I am even more so now with everything going on," said former Sgt. Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl's platoon when he went missing on June 30, 2009. "Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him."
Vierkant said Bergdahl needs to not only acknowledge his actions publicly but face a military trial for desertion under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
A reporter asked Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Sunday whether Bergdahl had left his post without permission or deserted -- and, if so, whether he would be punished. Hagel didn't answer directly. "Our first priority is assuring his well-being and his health and getting him reunited with his family," he said. "Other circumstances that may develop and questions, those will be dealt with later."~snip~
There's a lot of stuff out there about the inconsistencies of  Bowe Bergdahl capture. There needs to be full investigation of the circumstances surrounding not only his capture but the events around the deal Obama made for his release.
Bob Bergdahl also needs to lighten up on the rhetoric because from what I see any sympathy out there for the return of his son is being pretty quickly eroded
