I read in the paper and heard on T V, June 9 various comments by our elected Federal officials, mostly Democrats, Israel trades for prisoners at 5 to one. This came to light after the Congressional closed door hearing. What I do not know, did the Israel military prisoner walk off his or her post? If so, would Israel trade for it's soldier? It seems to me our elected federal officials are beginning a scenario to justify this trade. Where is the whitewash and brush to cover up poor judgment?
