The Curious Dramas of Bowe Bergdahl

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

Last Monday retired Lt. Col. Tony Schaffer, citing unnamed military sources, told Bill O’Reilly that the Army was planning to charge Bergdahl with desertion. He claimed that his sources confirmed that were given a charge sheet. It didn’t take Obama’s spin doctors long to have the Pentagon lying and denying that any charges were filed or any charge sheet presented to Bergdahl’s attorney Eugene Fidell. At the time of writing Mr. Fidell declined to speak to the press. In a surprise move NBC cited an anonymous senior defense official who said that Bergdahl will be charged with desertion very soon.

Panic

The White House doesn’t want Bergdahl to be charged but rather be listed as a Prisoner of War to justify their idiotic trade of five Taliban terrorists for an alleged deserter. A court-martial would be very bad optics for the infallible public housing mullah of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and his JV Staff.

Semantics

But then, this White House considers the Taliban a group of armed insurgents, not a terrorist organization. So the idea of negotiating with the Taliban for Bergdahl is not a concession to a terrorist organization. Maybe this White House can sell that to the people of Afghanistan. According to White House spokesman Eric Schultz, when Jordan makes a deal with the Islamic State it is giving into terrorism. The little fact the spokesman left out is that Bergdahl was held by the Haqqani, a declared terror group. In an interview with FoxNews.com, California Congressman Duncan Hunter summed up the Bergdahl fiasco: “Is the Taliban not responsible for American deaths? Frankly, it’s more nonsense from an administration that seems to have lost its sense of reality.”

Command Influence

The curious case of Bowe Bergdahl being charged with desertion has many wondering if the White House is trying to quash any negative publicity regarding the prisoner swap. As soon as Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby stated that the General Courts Martial Convening Authority, General Mark Milley, wasn’t under any political pressure, it was obvious that investigating General Milley was indeed under pressure. After all, a U.S. Army spokesman stated to the media that “Gen. Milley will determine appropriate action – which ranges from no further action to convening a court martial.” Considering the investigation has been completed and according to Lt. Col. Shaffer, Bergdahl’s lawyers have been presented with a list of charges, it’s a safe bet that Barack the 1st has brought massive pressure to bear on the general; no doubt consisting of the mild recommendation that he—the general– take the fall by ending the proceedings now.

But should the general do the right thing, when will Bergdahl be charged? And when will Obama pardon the undeclared prisoner of war?

Bowe Bergdahl is a deserter; the only hostage is the overdue Army report

BERGDAHL REPORT HELD UP BY POLITICS AS HUSSEIN CAN’T AFFORD TO LOOK SOFT ON TERRORISM – WHITE HOUSE PRESSURES BUTT-BOY GEN MARTIN DEMPSEY TO KEEP REPORT UNDER WRAPS – OBAMA WANTS BOWE CLASSIFIED A “PRISONER-OF-WAR” TO JUSTIFY HIS FREEING FIVE TALIBAN KILLERS IN EXCHANGE – EVIDENCE SHOWS BERGDAHL A DESERTER – WHAT ABOUT THE AMERICANS KILLED TRYING TO RESCUE HIM?

By Glenn MacDonald, guest writer from MilitaryCorruption.com

It’s an old axiom in the world of public affairs to release bad news or information that might result in blowback late on a Friday afternoon. That usually results in minimal “play” by the media and hopefully (in the view of the news managers) it will be marginalized by Monday morning’s news cycle.

If the long-awaited Army investigative report on Bowe Bergdahl had been released on time – Friday afternoon, January 16 – it would have tested that strategy to the maximum.

Much of the country suspects the liar-in-chief in the White House wants to paint the alleged Taliban “captive” in a sympathetic light, ignoring the over-whelming evidence that he is a lowlife deserter.

Much is at stake. Obama, ever mindful of his “legacy,” doesn’t want to be known as the President who freed five Taliban killers in exchange for a weirdo loser who got American GI’s killed in an effort to rescue him.

But, if GEN Mark Milley’s report is an honest one, the only way out for Obama is to over-rule his recommendations and that would have to include court-martial for desertion in wartime. And that risks even the reliably lapdog mainstream media turning on him.

WHY THE FURTHER DELAY?

So when will we finally know what is to happen? Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, GEN Martin Dempsey, is generally known as an Obama butt-boy, so chances of Bergdahl facing punishment are slim.

We just hope that Hussein doesn’t reward Bergdahl with “prisoner-of-war” status. That would mean this creep would collect more than $200,000 in back pay and get lifetime benefits which, at least until now, have been reserved for genuine American heroes.

To equate the sufferings of Sen. John McCain, five years in solitary confinement at the “Hanoi Hilton” with the amiable circumstances of Bergdahl’s time with the Taliban is an absolute outrage.

BERGDAHL SAID TO HAVE AIDED THE TALIBAN

As far back as 2010, the respected British newspaper of record, the Sunday TIMES, reported from Afghanistan that sources told them then-PFC Bowe Bergdahl had converted to Islam, taken the Muslim name of “Abdullah” and collaborated with the enemy.

A Taliban deputy district commander in Paktika Province who called himself Haji Nadeem, said Bergdahl had taught him how to dismantle a mobile phone and turn it into a remote control device to trigger a roadside bomb.

Former Army SGT Evan Buetow told CNN “Bergdahl is no hero. He’s a deserter, and the truth needs to be told.”

Bergdahl’s sergeant and team leader said right after the weird PFC walked away from his unit, “we started picking up radio intercepts from a nearby village that Bergdahl was there seeking contact with the Taliban.”

ATTACKS INCREASED AFTER BERGDAHL LEFT

Defying the Army’s attempt to muzzle him (Bergdahl’s unit members were ordered to sign “non-disclosure” statements in a blatant move to keep the true nature of the private’s departure secret) Sgt Buetow told CNN there was a sudden increase in attacks on the American outpost right after Bergdahl’s disappearance.

“Soon after he left, IED’s started going off directly under our truck convoys. They (the Taliban) were getting perfect hits every time. Their ambushes were very calculated, very methodical, like they knew what we were going to do before we did it. It was incredibly suspicious.”

The former NCO said Bergdahl “knew sensitive information” that, if provided to the Taliban, could put U.S. troops at greater risk of death or injury.”

“We were very worried he was giving information to the enemy,” Buetow said.

You can be sure it won’t be forgotten by the families of those soldiers who lost their lives looking for Bergdahl. Can you imagine how they will feel when the onetime private banks those “big bucks” and gets lucrative book deals and TV movie offers?

Dear readers, please be sure to carefully go through the previous eight Bowe Bergdahl stories published on MilitaryCorruption.com. Coach is Right will be carrying these stories over the next several days.

Glenn MacDonald writes of MCC: “See what facts we have dug up and contrast our reporting with the kid gloves treatment the Obama-suck media have provided thus far.”

 

Bowe Bergdahl and the Taliban’s “Made for TV” release of a traitorous stooge

By Suzanne Eovaldi,  staff writer

“Boys are for pleasure, women are for babies,” former Navy SEAL Brandon Webb told CNN viewers as he explained that the Taliban propaganda film of Bowe Bergdahl’s release was carefully crafted to throw many cruel insults at America in order to flood the Middle East with the message that the Taliban had achieved victory over the great Satan! (1) 

The fact that Bowe Bergdahl had no beard, no facial hair was meant to convey the message to world audiences that he, i.e. America, had been emasculated, rendered weak, unable to win the battle for hearts and minds!  In the Afghan culture, thick beards and facial hair are signs of virility, masculinity on steroids.  Webb said the entire scenario was a deftly drawn propaganda event aimed to humiliate the United States, our fighting men in Afghanistan and to tell the entire world we have been defeated!

“It’s an insult to shake with the left hand,” an affront to the Taliban who knew to send this non-verbal message, even though our vulnerable Special Forces extraction team had to operate during the daylight, without protection of backup power of our military.  Our team had to keep their right hands free as they were meeting up with heavily armed Haqqani troops carrying grenade launchers and heavy duty assault rifles.  Had something gone wrong, our copter “would have been a bullet magnet!”  Again, the message the Taliban was sending to the Western world is, “we’re compassionate; Bergdahl is able to walk out on his own.”  But the propaganda payload sent to Arabic TV was that the clothed in white “Americans are weak, they’ve lost another war, we’ve won this one for Allah.”

The fact that the Taliban filmed the whole thing and CNN simply picked up the feed immediately sends a message that the terrorists were in control.

Now, let’s examine the message the Muslim world was picking up on in this film, as revealed by the hints of former Navy SEAL Webb.  Wiki defines Bacheh-baazi as a Persian word for “playing with kids; also a child, young man, kid; it is a slang term that is commonly used for sexual slavery and child prostitution.”  Bacha bazi was exposed in a 2010 documentary aired on PBS’s Frontline.  “These batchas or dancing boys are a recognised (sic) institution throughout” Afghanistan, Wiki continues. “Bacha bazi is one form of pederasty which has been prevalent in that area since ancient times.”  (2)  What has to be noted here is that no female soldiers were on the US extraction team, and that the closest visual of a feminine—or rather, effeminate–presence in the entire event was Bergdahl himself.  Think about the symbolism in our currently politically correct culture that the Afghanis are exploiting.

A clean-appearing, childlike male next to heavily armed, bearded, very virile Afghan males conveys. . .you connect the dots.  The left hand over the chest greeting the Special Ops rescue soldier gave was met equally with one from the other side, neutralizing slightly the handover.

The contrast between the appearance of Bowe Bergdahl and the Taliban soldiers who released him is very startling, especially given the look of Bergdahl in terrorist’s “proof of life” videos as he sits cross legged on a floor mat, eating out of a bowl in typical Middle Eastern meal tradition.  One sees these dining-on-the-floor scenarios all over the North African Imperial Cities in Morocco of Fez, Marrakech, Meknes, and Rabat. So any viewer with half a sense of travel in the Atlas Mountain regions should easily be able to recognize what’s going on in the Afghan mountain made-for-the-movies-agitprop. (3)

“Our government knows full well that he deserted…it looks bad and is a good propaganda piece for the Taliban.  They (U.S.) refuse to acknowledge it. . .What he did affected his family and his whole town back home who don’t know the truth. . .our movements, locations, tactics, weak points on vehicles, and other things for the enemy to exploit are just a few possibilities,” says an un-identified (for this post) soldier companion of Bergdahl. (4) “He failed his brothers.” So not only were the wise-to-Western-messaging Taliban able to exploit Bergdahl’s walk around the earth; they astutely manipulated his handover for television and the internet the world over!

Obama reaches back to Clinton’s “Nuts and sluts” trying to lie his way out of Beghdahl treason

 By Kevin “Coach” Collins

Barack Obama is basically an enemy of America. Those who voted for him and those who manipulated the Republican primaries to insure a loser like Mitt Romney would be the GOP candidate to oppose him, have much to be ashamed of and much guilt to share.

Obama has always been suspect in every aspect of his being from his fake life story to his devastating use of executive power to destroy our nation. Nevertheless, few among us could have predicted his treachery in the trade of five top level enemy commanders for a single soldier who willfully deserted and collaborated with America’s enemies.

Obama’s Americanism has always been suspect as well, yet we were still surprised at how out of touch with America this fake Obama actually is.  When he arranged for the trade and he actually thought Americans would be euphoric at the return of “Nicholas Brody” Bergdahl he thought we would forget all about the VA scandal. This stunned us.

This fake American really thought we would be in the streets dancing around barn fires. Instead the truth that this fake; this empty suit created by the Democrats; is not an American in his heart, came crashing over the nation like a tidal wave.

Now Barack Hussein Obama has to try to lie his way out of the spotlight of truth.

He has to use every available weapon and “leave no lie behind.” 

The loathsome New York Times has slashed out at the Americans in Bergdahl’s unit suggesting his treason was caused by a “lack of discipline.” It accused Republicans of “arranging” for Bergdahl’s unit members to lie to reporters saying lives were lost searching for the deserter and newly minted Islamic Jihadist.   

Professional liar Susan Rice, our Affirmative Action National Security Advisor, is locked into the lie that Brody Bergdahl served with honor. She is spouting “innocent until proven guilty” as if there is any chance whatsoever that a resolution to his case would be reached in the next forty years. 
 
Obama is saying there is no evidence that Brody Bergdahl fraternized with the Taliban even in the face of his continued survival for years in the hands of savages who cut off the heads of those who resist them.  
 
Obama’s Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Brandon Friedman, a nervy little twerp, has decided that Bergdahl was the only sane man in a platoon of “psychopaths.”  

Marie Harf, who is way over her empty head in the job she has, (and should never represent a small town Council let alone the President of the United States), summed Obama’s position up by accusing “Nicholas Brody” Bergdahl’s platoon mates of “swift boating” him.

So far Obama has laid out the “nuts” defensive. As soon as he gets the nerve his lackeys will call the wife or mother of a soldier killed searching for their hero a “slut.” They might not say so directly, but it is coming. Bank on it.

Obama destroys America’s credibility for political gain

By Jim Emerson,  staff writer

The Era of Obama’s Unintended Consequences

Fox News James Rosen reported that while Bowe Bergdahl was in captivity he converted to Islam and declared himself a mujahid. Mujahid means one who struggles for the sake of Allah. Not surprisingly, in recent years it was closely associated with Islamic extremists. Fox News obtained Secret situation reports or SITREPS that detail Bergdahl’s life in the hands Haqqani captors. His life over the last five years, according to the SITREPS, consisted of a progression from mistreatment to acceptance to eventually trusting Bergdahl with a loaded AK-47. (1)

In 2010 Bergdahl attempted to escape and disappeared for 5 days before being recaptured. He was confined in a custom built cage. In time he gained the trust of the Haqqani and his treatment improved.  Analysts have concluded that the change and allegiance to his captors would indicate he may have may have capitulated to Stockholm syndrome in order to survive. SITREPS doesn’t mention whether Bergdahl actively collaborated with the Haqqani or the Taliban while being held but it doesn’t excuse him from deserting his post and further endangering American soldiers by deliberately placing them  in harm’s way.

Negotiation for Bergdahl began a few months after he left his post and was captured. SITREPs indicate that Warlord Sirajuddin Haqqani first proposed a prisoner swap with the Americans through Pakistani political contacts. The Reports mention failed, July, 2010 negotiations between the Haqqani and the State Department at the end of which Bergdahl was relocated. It’s likely that negotiations for a prisoner swap occurred off and on until his release. The Haqqani had a valuable asset and knew that the United States would eventually cower to their demands.

Unintended Consequences

The prisoner exchange has encouraged the Taliban and the Haqqani to kidnap more U.S. service members and Americans in general now that the Obama administration is willing to negotiate with them. (2) An unnamed Taliban commander to Time Magazine “It’s better to kidnap one person like Bergdahl than kidnapping hundreds of useless people.” Now everybody will work hard to capture such an important bird.” Not only will terrorists get their Taliban brother/brothers back, but a deal with politically motivated crooks like Barack Obama might also be profitable as well. (3)

It’s quite likely that Bergdahl’s life was never in danger because he was too valuable to the Haqqani to lose or harm. Obama needed a distraction from myriad White House scandals and he got one.

Marco Rubio told Time Magazine that “[Obama] set a precedent that will encourage enemies of the United States to target American men and women in uniform and capture them in order to carry out a similar exchange in the future.” History may record this time as the era of Obama’s Unintended Consequences.

The Real losers

The people of Afghanistan who survived the reign of terror under Taliban rule are frightened that some of the monsters of their past are now free. They are now fearful of revenge courtesy of Mullah Obama.
