    Now she is being sent to Brooks Army medical center
    @ taxpayer expense?

    But I'm just wondering if the reason the govt sent her to a military installation
    possibly - to get info for S-2????

    “Whelan served with the Marine Corps Reserve from 2003-2008, much of the time as an administrative clerk in Iraq. At the end of that period, he was dishonourably discharged for larceny and other lesser offences, after being found to have tried to steal $10,000”

    Factbox: Paul Whelan, ex-U.S. Marine jailed in Russia on spying charges

    Got Trevor Reed out before Griner as well. Reed and Whalen both imprisoned during the Trump admin.

    Zero shame of course in posting what you obviously didn’t even read up on before posting. You did what you usually do, trusted a meme off Facebook and didn’t even understand it.

    I would have chosen the Marine over a so-called basketball "hero"

    He’s about three times the criminal she ever was and was a disgrace to the uniform and subsequently drummed out. And of course he found new ways to get in trouble afterwards. An odd choice.

    Dereliction of duty and grand larceny is serving himself not this country. Blind reverence of the Armed Forces is very tiresome. Nobody has been clamoring for the rerun of this guy. He’s just being used today of all days as a political gotcha card.

    I'm not saying he is the model American military man - but I would have taken him over Griner.

    Are you saying Griner was the best choice - and if so - Why?

    Probably because she was the only choice. Which is what the misleading meme is failing to articulate.

    The problem may be in trading a notorious terrorist arms dealer for the release of anyone. Just what kind of message does that send?

    In 2021, Russia said there were 17 Americans in Russian jails
    So, there were many more choices!
    But the real question is: why dont we know more about those other Americians?

    And what were their crimes? Were they as frivolous as a hash pen?

    She was the only choice in that Russia was willing to negotiate her release.

    Both should have been left in Russia. We keep the arms dealer. They keep the thug and the criminal ex marine.
    She hated the U.S. Leave her in Russia.

    Bingo. Not exactly sure why you would consider Griner a “thug” but I suspect I know the reason. She’s the least criminal of the three but she’s black sooooooo.

    Thug?
    Tattoos everywhere.
    Uses illegal drugs.
    Very hostile, non respectful attitude.

    She checks every box for "thug life".
