The Lyrics

AWOL Sgt. Bergdahl exchanged for five Taliban terrorists who have killed 7000 plus several Army troops that attempted to find him. Obama breaks "no negotiations with terrorists" standing US foreign polict with no regrets. Talis live to kill again, or at least orchestrate more killings in that area.
Swapped light, no knight
No fight, swapped light

He should have known better than walk off by himself
Rescuers went searching- he killed somebody else
Talis throwing a party, 5 terrorists let go
Killed over 7000... US public last to know...

Obama is no star
Violated foreign policy, did it all HIS way
Negotiations went too far
Set free, they live to kill another day!

[Chorus]
Swapped light, set 5 murderers free
Swapped light, Bergdahl AWOL from Army
Swapped light, true explanations declined
Swapped light, Talis guilty of war crimes

Is the guy a traitor, or did he just get grabbed?
He was under orders in Afghanistan
Why did O' trade for him, let 5 Talis slide?
An abuse of power, now no one's on his side (at least not on the Right)

Families of slain yell, “Crime!”
They think Bergdahl's slime, don't care 'bout his plight
Might be turned to the other side
Lost English for a start, something just ain't right

Swapped light, set 5 murderers free
Swapped light, Bergdahl AWOL from Army
Swapped light, explanations declined
Swapped light, Talis guilty of war crimes

[Intermediate]
Retrospect, a bad call
Guy's not a hero- went AWOL
No Yellow Ribbons- he should be tried
Let Army troops stand and testify

Obama went too far
A bad idea from the start
Swapped light, wrong guy at the wrong time
Swapped light, US policies in decline

Swapped light, set 5 murderers free
Swapped light, Bergdahl AWOL from Army
Swapped light, explanations declined
Swapped light, Talis guilty of war crimes

US lost this war, situation there is poor
Over-budget waste of time
Bergdahl had no heart, deserted, rescuers torn apart
To Taliban delight

Message:
Grab Americans, release jailed brothers w/o fight...

Seriously, because of this I wonder how many will die due to this deal? If terrorists things U.S. can be pushed around, this will help give them another reason why. At this point, we might be better off carpet bombing the entire country.
