Duffy argues against swapping Prisoners of War to Swift Boat Bergdahl.

Rep. Sean Duffy can't be serious. At Duffy's YouTube channel, this clueless former MTV star inadvertently made the best case yet why he needs to go.

Featured in a post at Cognitive Dissidence by Jeff Simpson, Duffy never looked more vacuous and out of his element. Duffy made it clear he is not a deep thinker. He's also not aware of when he's losing an argument. Duffy's questions and misguided contradictory statements about the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl swap were proven wrong over and over again by Mark Jacobson, a former adviser to Gen. McChrystal  and Patraeus.

Again, Duffy thought his "performance" in the video was a bragging point, an impressive show of concern over the swap and his grasp of foreign policy.

But Duffy's jaw dropping lack of depth on Bergdahl and prisoner swaps in general is not just scary, but should be a major concern in his district. What an amazing loser:

Sean Duffy plays his part well. He reads from a prepared script talking point after talking point. He doesn't care that U.S, prisoners of war needs to know that our nation will honor the promise to leave no man behind.

For republicans like Duffy he would have us only honor that pledge IF the GOP thinks the the POW deserves it based on their skewed values of their rights and who is a true American.

They would not leave one stone unturned to rescue one of their own "patriots". Patriots as define by only their standards.

To have not recovered Sgt. Bergdahl would have been tantamount to finding him guilty without due process and the benefit of being heard by a jury of his peers.

The fact that Mr Duffy (a lawyer) seems to feel comfortable ignoring the Constitution, the UCMJ, international treaties and the Geneva Convention so they (GOP) can blame the black man in the White House for exchanging foreign POW's for one of our own…. is disgraceful behavior Mr. Duffy.

Sgt. Bergdahl will now have the opportunity to be heard. If guilty he will be punished according to the UCMJ. Regardless he deserves to be home BEFORE he can be found guilty.

This veteran believes every POW should be brought home.
