AWOL Traitor Traded for Taliban Terrorists
pamelageller.com ^ | May 31, 2014 | Pamela Geller

Posted on 06/01/2014 2:32:58 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper

The policy of the United States government has always been we do not negotiate with terrorists. So why did the Obama administration release five of the worst GITMO jihadists – Taliban leasership – in exchange for an AWOL soldier – a traitor – who willingly walked away from his unit, raising the question of whether he could be charged with being absent without leave or desertion.

CAN ANYONE verify the truth of this statement posted on Gellar's site and all over the internet regarding Bergdahl?

"I WAS THERE. I'm sick of all the lies. Here is the TRUTH, from someone on the ground. 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. 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."

I fear that this man will not face justice until he dies.

The guy is wearing a full beard, sign of islam.

His father was calling out thank god in arabic. Also saying he wants prisoners in guantanamo released.

We have this story on the net.

This guy is a traitor.

Guy is the closest thing to a real life Nicolas Brody(see the showtime show “Homeland”) that I have ever heard of.

If this story is even HALF or a QUARTER true, this guy should BE in military prison for the rest of his miserable life.

There must be some truth to all the deception, and the guy’s dad is a muslim, calling for the release of terrorist prisoners. The guy is wearing a full unkempt muslim beard, this story, and the prisoner trade that violated federal law. Not to mention Obama trading for this one guy, instead of other americans all over the world.

Anyways, Obama got this guy out. Which is enough to make my stomach queasy. Watch for what happens next with this guy.

Obama is playing a dangerous game. It is starting to become evident that he is goading the Republicans to impeach him before November so Democrats can play the race card and hold on tote senate.

All the while hastening this country’ s collapse.

Everybody misses the obvious: The Obama herd is releasing the 5 top Taliban because they are working on a deal with the Taliban leadership. Bergdahl was just an excuse to release them from Gitmo.

Amazing Obama can pull a traitor out of an Afghanistan prison, but can’t get a marine out of a Mexican jail just across our border.

Perhaps Obama can’t find an illegal alien who wants to go BACK to Mexico in exchange for the Marine.

BTTT for total disgust.

Please God, May Sheriff Joe and Mike Zulo have the real goods on this traitorous CinC, and release them soon.

I was so happy to hear of Bergdahl’s release and then found out he deserted. Now, that good men died trying to find this SOB.

Then his father invokes Allah standing next to the POTUS?

What a mockery of the last 13 years.

why? because 0bama works for the other side

don’t think so? then ask yourself, what would an enemy agent do?

people seem to miss how this is on the heels of outing the top spy in kabul (as well as a rather long list of accomplishments destroying American intelligence, military might, military leadership, and economic capabilities that would make any foreign spy envious)

Everybody misses the obvious...Obama working with Taliban (shortened)

Obama is sinking at home, and the Taliban gave him a lifeline. The Taliban gets bragging rights and prestige in Afghanistan for getting five of their guys back in exchance for one US citizen

Meanwhile, the Sudanese Christian is still in prison after giving birth (reports are England might have facilitated her release), that Marine languishes in a Mexican prison (too many non-violent options to even enumerate to free him) and the US still arms terrorists who kill Christians in Syria.

Let’s see. The US president announces the specific date when all US forces are leaving, outs the US spy chief in Kabul, releases 5 Taliban commanders, is shown beaming with the treasonous deserter’s father who immediately says an Islamic prayer...you really couldn’t make this stuff up. No one would believe a novel with a plot like this.

I wonder what his endgame is? Does Obama feel so confident now that he can just flaunt his hatred of the US and his wish for our destruction, or does he think he doesn’t have much time left to accomplish his goal and is merely speeding things up to make sure it’s done by 2016? Or even by this fall, just in case the Senate changes hands.

By now, he knows he can get away with it, and in fact can get away with anything, so he really has nothing to lose by just throwing off all pretense and showing where his true loyalties lie.

Obama has committed treason, now let’s see if Congress will act or if the democrats will make groom Bergdahl to be first a US Senator and then a Sec of State.

“I fear that this man will not face justice until he dies.”

I thought you were talking about Barack Hussein Obama at first.

Obama just did what he has done since his election: supported Islamic terrorism whenever he had a chance. How can anyone be surprised at this point? Do we have to wait until Iran detonates nuclear weapons over Tel Aviv and Houston?

Obama wants to destroy the Republic, he is a communist spy, and hates the US.

Let’s hope some of men who served with Bergdahl will speak out.

If this is anywhere close to he truth, we have a budding constitutional crisis on our hands.

The Democrats have to be tarred and feathered with this, and all the Obama scandals until November’s elections.

And if the sheeple keep the Dems in power, then we are truly focked.

Excellent point.

At least the opposition party could hold public hearings and gather facts on this until after the election. This appears to be a broken law, but they need an open-and-shut case here anyway. Plus compile the other offenses (unapproved Libya attack, cover ups in F&F and Bengazi...). Start the impeachment trial in December.

Leaking the name of the CIA chief blinding our intel in this area at the same time they are releasing 5 top Taliban.

It was just an accident of course.

Repeat 3 times while clicking your heals together and it will become true.

Anything becomes true in the Land of Obama as long as you believe.

Do you think Beohner cares? Boehner's inaction demands that we hold him complicit in ALL of Obama's actions.

The Democrats have to be tarred and feathered with this, and all the Obama scandals until November’s elections.

We have been wishing for 6 years that the Marxist be held responsible -- never going to happen.

And if the sheeple keep the Dems in power, then we are truly focked.

Indeed. Most voters wont notice and/or wont care. Our Republic is truly in a death spiral.

I truly fear something terrible is on the horizon, likely happening before Jan 2017.
