PRISONER EXCHANGE (SUPPOSEDLY from a soldier who was part of the search for Bergdahl)

PRISONER EXCHANGE

U.S. soldier Bergdahl freed from captivity in Afghanistan


Forwarded from the secret Special Forces unauthorized back channel frequency:

"We were at OP Mest, Paktika Province, Afghanistan. It was a small outpost where B Co 1-501st INF (Airbone) ran operations out of, just an Infantry platoon and ANA counterparts there. The place was an Afghan graveyard.

Bergdahl had been acting a little strange, telling people he wanted to "walk the earth" and kept a little journal talking about how he was meant for better things. No one thought anything about it. He was a little “out there”.

Next morning he's gone. We search everywhere, and can't find him. He left his weapon, his kit, and other sensitive items. He only took some water, a compass and a knife.

We find some Afghan kids shortly after who saw an American walking north asking about where the Taliban are. We get hits on our voice intercepter that Taliban has him, and we were close. We come to realize that the kid deserted his post, snuck out of camp and sought out Taliban… to join them.

We were in a defensive position at OP Mest, where your focus is to keep people out. He knew where the blind spots were to slip out and that's what he did. ,p>It was supposed to be a 4-day mission but turned into several months of active searching. Everyone was spun up to find this guy. News outlets all over the country were putting out false information. It was hard to see, especially when we knew the truth about what happened and we lost good men trying to find him.

PFC Matthew Michael Martinek, Staff Sgt. Kurt Robert Curtiss, SSG Clayton Bowen, PFC Morris Walker, SSG Michael Murphrey, 2LT Darryn Andrews, were all KIA from our unit who died looking for Bergdahl. Many others from various units were wounded or killed while actively looking for Bergdahl.

Fighting Increased. IEDs and enemy ambushes increased. The Taliban knew that we were looking for him in high numbers and our movements were predictable. Because of Bergdahl, more men were out in danger, and more attacks on friendly camps and positions were conducted while we were out looking for him. His actions impacted the region more than anyone wants to admit.

There is also no way to know what he told the Taliban: Our movements, locations, tactics, weak points on vehicles and other things for the enemy to exploit are just a few possibilities. The Government knows full well that he deserted. It looks bad and is a good propaganda piece for the Taliban. They refuse to acknowledge it. Hell they even promoted him to Sergeant which makes me sick.

I feel for his family who only want their son/brother back. They don’t know the truth, or refuse to acknowledge it as well. What he did affected his family and his whole town back home, who don’t know the truth. Either way what matters is that good men died because of him. He has been lying on all those Taliban videos about everything since his “capture”.

If he ever returns, he should be tried under the UCMJ for being a deserter and judged for what he did. Bergdahl is not a hero, he is not a soldier or an Infantryman. He failed his brothers.

Now, sons and daughters are growing up without their fathers who died for him and he will have to face that truth someday."

June 1, 2014 at 3:39 PM can this account be corroborated? the accounts in the news that he just "wandered off" always seemed dubious, but if the version above is the true story, then this is indeed shameful and he should be tried under UCMJ.

June 1, 2014 at 4:55 PM Yes, it can be verified. Google the Names of the Soldiers he listed as KIA. Their Obituaries are on Military times and their from his Unit, in the Same areas as the search at the beginning of this in 2009 when they were actively searching for this traitor. They died searching for him when he is a deserting traitor. My stomach was sick after I researched this. Now 5 high ranking Taliban Who are even on the traitorous UN's wanted list for war crimes are free to go about their Jihad. Disgusting!

This account should at least trigger a full investigation to find out if it can be verified. If verified the process for court-martial should be initiated.

What compensation will the families of these heroes get?

I agree. There seems, on the surface at least, to be enough info about specific personnel and the unit involved to at least justify an official inquiry.

I just caught a grainy photo in the NY Times of the father, Robert Bergdahl. He looks like a weird, hippie version of a jihadist. What’s going on here?

I’ve seen another account that basically says the same thing. This guy’s got some explaining to do and if it doesn’t happen, then the Obama administration is threatening him big time.

This deserter caused the deaths of good American soldiers. He should be arrested immediately and stand trial. The blood of better men, sent out to rescue this POS, cries out for justice. Also joining him on trial should be every SOB in the Pentagon who signed off on this stinking deal.

And this treasonous president.should be impeached for aiding this nation’s enemies.

My blood is just boiling over this. I remember when that kid disappeard and there was wide speculation at the time he deserted. Frankly I thought he had been killed by the Taliban.

This whole exchange is so beyond the pale with that muzzie father in the rose garden thanking Allah. My head is about to explode.

Timing. Why would they do this now? Obama paid as much attention to Bergdahl as he does to everything outside of golf, which is to say he didn’t pay any attention at all to it. Why now?

I’m telling you, Al Qaeda has got Obama and Hillary by the short hairs and they are pulling. Hillary and Obama screwed around with Libya and figured they could get away with it because they control the American press. They forgot about Al Qaeda and Putin.

The Democrats, the Republicans, the bureaucrats and the American press are all telling themselves it’s OK to hide the truth from us because we might panic. They treat us like children in security matters, and then they think they should treat us like children in all matters.

These stupid s**ts have screwed around and really got us in a mess! and like little children! they try to hide it. Hell, we know Al Qaeda has antiaircraft missiles. We know Obama is paying protection money to keep them from using those missiles. Maybe we have to keep paying.

But, it’s for damn sure we don’t have to keep around the assholes who got us in this mess and their criminal syndicate the Democrat Party.

Isnt she the one who fronted the Benghazi lie on the Sunday morning shows in the downplay/coverup of the 4 Americans killed at the embassy?

Is she getting any better at covering up murderous treason??

I wonder what her pay off will be? What was she promised this time?

She was definitely coached on that obviously canned response.

I dont have TV or watch the Sunday shows at all and thats exactly why. I doesnt take much distance from it to easily recognize when the government is lying to its bosses thru the TV.

She is just a lackey.

Just like the reporters Obammy keeps locked in the tool shed while he golfs, or the others he keeps locked in their bedrooms until his fund raising is over and Carney in particular!

How long can you stomach whoring your life and profession for Obama?

Susan Rice hasn’t had to ask herself that, yet.

Here's two more.

Via Michelle Malkin…

“Combat Outpost Zerok was almost overrun, multiple soldiers were wounded and PFCs Justin Casillas and Aaron Fairbairn lost their lives fighting that day,” the soldier told me. (I wrote about their deaths in my July 8, 2009 column, not knowing they were related to the Bergdahl mess.)

Is there an explanation why Bergdahl is the ONLY Taliban ‘captive’ to LIVE!

Thank you. I did read Michelle Malkin’s post this morning and hoped a graphic would be update to reflect the increasing number of dead Bergdahl is responsible for. Also, in no way should all those soldiers and their families whose lives have been permanently altered as a result of Bergdahl’s selfish acts be left unmentioned or forgotten.
