The Republicans who tried to destroy America's economy at home and got us into endless wars now attack the President for obtaining freedom for a POW.  

President Obama today said he makes no apologies for obtaining the freedom of an American soldier:  

“We have a basic principle: We do not leave anybody wearing the American uniform behind,” Obama said at a joint news conference with U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron in Brussels. “We saw an opportunity and we seized it and I make no apologies for that.”

More from the President:

"I make absolutely no apologies for making sure that we get back a young man to his parents, and that the American people understand that this is somebody's child, and that we don't condition whether or not we make the effort to try to get them back," Obama concluded.

How low will the Republican chickenhawks go?

I'm glad the President said this.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
