If Obama's Principle Is That We Never Leave Soldiers Behind, How Much Would He Really Be Willing To Trade Away?

Since Obama has said that he wouldn't leave any American soldier behind, I wish someone would ask him:

Rather than the Taliban 5, would you have swapped Malia for Bergdahl?

Yeah, I know that it is a preposterous question on one level, but if Obama's principle is that we don't leave American troops behind, then such a question would tell us exactly how much he means it.

I mean, if the CINC's position is that we don't leave any American soldier behind, then there should be no question. Right?

Would the circumstances of Bergdahl's 'disappearance' factor into Obama's 'calculus'?

Would Obama have even thought about exchanging Malia for a AWOLer, deserter, defector, and/or collaborator Bergdahl if that was wanted the Taliban had demanded?
Of course not.

And, no one would expect him to make such a trade. ..

..but one does have to ask, then, is Malia Obama worth more than Bowe Robert Bergdahl? Is she one of those 'more equal than others' animals? Is this 'fair'? Is this 'equality'?

Further, it does, however, disprove Obama's contention that 'we don't leave Americans behind' because, obviously, we would if the Taliban demanded Malia Obama.

On the other hand, would he have traded Khalid Sheik-Mohammed for two American soldiers held in captivity and who were actually captured on the battlefield?

Would he trade the mastermind of 9/11, who is responsible for the deaths of 3,000 Americans for those two American soldiers, who did, in fact, serve honourably and with distinction?

After all, he did trade Mullah Norullah Noori, a senior Taliban military commander, who is wanted by the United Nations for possible war crimes, including the murder of thousands of Shiite Muslims and 6,000 men and boys in Mazar-i-Sharif, according to a leaked JTF-GTMO file.

So, are Muslim lives worth less than American ones?

To paraphrase Kanye West, why does Obama hate brown-skinned people?
