Report: “Many” in intelligence community fear Bergdahl may've been active collaborator w/the Taliban
Hot Air ^ | June 2, 2014 | Allahpundit

Posted on 06/02/2014 11:02:09 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Explosive stuff from James Rosen, whose private e-mail would surely be under surveillance by Eric Holder after this story if it wasn’t already.

The more damning the accusations against Bergdahl, the less the prisoner swap adds up.

A senior official confirms to Fox News that the conduct of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl — both in his final stretch of active duty in Afghanistan and then, too, during his time when he lived among the Taliban — has been thoroughly investigated by the U.S. intelligence community and is the subject of “a major classified file.”

In conveying as much, the Defense Department source confirmed to Fox News that many within the intelligence community harbor serious outstanding concerns not only that Bergdahl may have been a deserter but that he may have been an active collaborator with the enemy…

Sources told Fox News that many officials in the Executive Branch are “quite baffled” by the White House’s decision to allow the president to stand alongside Bergdahl’s father this past weekend, given the father’s history of controversial statements, emails and online posts.

There’s a Pentagon file that may or may not accuse this guy of outright treason and not only does Obama still do the deal for five Taliban bigwigs, he holds a big White House presser with Bergdahl’s father? What?

Rosen’s not the only reporter hearing whispers about collaboration either. Stephen Hayes of the Standard spoke to several soldiers from Bergdahl’s squad (one of whom tweeted at length about his suspicions this weekend) and heard lots of doubts — and not just about desertion.

[S]everal military officials who spoke with THE WEEKLY STANDARD noted privately that Taliban attacks on U.S. forces in the Paktika province seemed to increase in frequency and effectiveness [after Bergdahl disappeared]…

[O]thers wonder whether Bergdahl helped the Taliban, either willfully or under duress. In the hours after he disappeared, according to sources familiar with the intelligence, U.S. troops received an intelligence report that Bergdahl stopped in a local village and asked how to find the Taliban. That report, if it exists, is not mentioned in the Wikileaks documents related to Bergdahl’s disappearance. But several sources with knowledge of the case insist that the report is true.

Says one platoon mate: “He’s friends with the delivery driver, he’s friends with the goat farmer, he’s got relationships with all the locals—and he stops to ask how he can find the Taliban? He could have just gone to Habib the local goat farmer and floated along with the locals.”

Intel officials told Hayes that the Pentagon thoroughly investigated Bergdahl’s disappearance, questioning members of his squad many times. Among the things they wanted to know was whether he had info that could have helped the Taliban, be it medical, tactical (how to deal with IEDs), or strategic. Two other sources told him that Bergdahl was, in fact, considered AWOL by the Army — but that the Pentagon ultimately backed down on formally designating him that way, probably because the politics of accusing Bergdahl while he was in enemy hands would have been simply too hot for comfort.

But if all that’s true … why was Bergdahl promoted in absentia to sergeant in 2011? Why would he be in line for another promotion, to staff sergeant, this month? And why would the White House let itself get within a thousand miles of the Bergdahl family with suspicions like these ready to bubble over? It’s one thing to do a deal to get an American back; it’s another to give away the terrorist farm as part of it; and it’s another still to give away the farm for a guy whom your own investigators think may be a Taliban sympathizer. Remember, the ostensible point of the prisoner exchange is to set a precedent so that Obama can release other detainees at Gitmo later this year and finally close the prison. The last thing you’d want to do in that case is trade five especially dangerous detainees for someone whose loyalty to the U.S. is in serious question even within the administration’s own ranks. It’s a political tornado in the making; if Bergdahl does end up being proved a deserter or worse, Democrats will run screaming from future Gitmo prisoner releases. Just doesn’t make sense. Maybe the White House has reason to believe that Bergdahl’s getting a bum rap and really was taken against his will — but in that case, why isn’t Carney or anyone else pushing back hard with that information? What’s going on here?

If you imagine that the chief executive of our country is, indeed, a devout Muslim despite all his vehement protestations to the contrary, it makes a lot more sense, doesn't it?

This article from 2012 said he would remain in power even if he lost, so I guess it’s been pushed to 2016:

It would make sense that if they were going to release an American in exchange for five of their goat-fornicators, they’d choose one (assuming they chose the one to release) that was secretly one of their own. Why wouldn’t they?

and is the subject of “a major classified file.”

There must still be at least a splinter group loyal to America in our American intelligence agencies. Someone needs to release that "major classified file" pronto, and to hell with the consequences.

Wow - what makes them think that?

Maybe that the Taliban tends to kill most of their captives and this guy’s been alive for five years?

I agree.

The game plan seems to be create a national disaster (riots, collapse of the economy, health industry etc) and, by executive order, claim there is too much unrest for an election and that you (Obama) will stay in control until things settle down.

That’s been my scenario for the last 4 years.

This might all be planned to get Americans in an uproar and revolt and then Obama can declare Martial Law. You can almost see the writing on the wall already.

Notice when Obama is with the traitor's father and the moment the father start with his Al Quaida speak, Obama has a crap eating grin on his face which almost seems it was one of the few times he's been proud of this country hear the words Alla Akbar coming from an actual American.

A former intelligence official told the Washington Times that military officials fought the White House and the State Department for a stronger deal but that this deal turned out the way it did because “the administration wanted to close the door on this no matter what the price was.”

Why did they so badly want this to go away that they were willing to risk the political price they’re now paying?

If Bergdahl were the biggest hero in American military history 0bama still committed high treason by letting the five highest order terrorists in custody go.

I think the deals real reason was an agreement with the Taliban to stand down during our Bug Out so that Dear Leader doesn’t get embarrassed. Getting our “ prisoner” back is just the cover story...

First, he’s doing all of this to tell Americans who voted for him just how he fooled them.

Second, he’s poking his finger in the eyes of those who didn’t vote for him.

Third, why is it that not one person will fall on his sword for America?

And fourth, I hope Snowden has info on all of this and the Guardian releases it.

yes. seriously, yes.

Like the old parable about putting a frog in a pot of hot water vs a cold one and raising the temperature slowly.

We have been in a pot of cold water and the temp has been rising while we have been busy with our iPhones and pushing all sorts of meaningless, and diverting, social agendas. The country is primed for a dictator.

O has aided and abetted our enemies long before he became POTUS -

His traitorous touch now has almost unlimited reach and scope.

He could be caught on video committing murder in the WH and any who protested would be called racist and it would be dismissed as a false scandal driven by his political enemies.

Such is our brave new world. We asked for it, bought it, paid for it, and have supported it.

Sure seems to be that way. The Soros Administration seems to kick the hornets’ nest at every opportunity.

as soon as I heard this happened, I turned to my wife and said that this was just an excuse to open the cells at Gitmo and an easy way for Barry to make good on his promise to his nutbar base.

Willing to bet Mullah Obama will campaign strongly for UN secretary general. That’s a good starting point for his ego to be emperor of the world.
