The release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl  in exchange for 5 top Taliban terrorists held at Gitmo has led to some mixed and hostile reaction.

The reliably leftist publication Mother Jones has noticed that using trains to transport oil hasn’t worked out too well over the last few years. Too bad there’s no safer way to transport fuel.
