Bob Bergdahl: "I'm proud of how much Bowe wanted to help the Afghan people"
Vanity | June 01, 2014 | CivilWarBrewing

Posted on 06/01/2014 12:31:23 PM PDT by CivilWarBrewing

So.. Bowe abandoned his post to go help the Afghan people? WTF? Watching this news conference with his parents is a surreal and confusing experience.

He seems to think he’s accepting an Oscar.

Another case of an insane parent raising what may be a weirdo young man.

RE: “I’m proud of how much Bowe wanted to help the Afghan people”

Two questions:

1) Which Afghan people?

2) In what way did he want to help?

Gee, it would be too bad if bowie fell into a sewer and drowned. That’s where he belongs.

An odd thing to say.

This guy just “wandered off from his post” and now is a hero. This whole deal smells of a set up. If he had been truly captured he would have been headless by now and worm food.

My opinion and I’ll admit I am a skeptic.

I think you could be right, and God forgive me, (PLEASE) but I could barely endure his father’s rambling.

I’m now sorry, I watched the whole damn thing.

I think you’re right. It should be OBVIOUS to everyone that the reason Bowe’s head is still attached to his body is because he WAS A WILLING CONVERT TO ISLAM, and his father Bob’s Tweet (previous post) raises suspicions as to his religious affiliation.

When a person denies wrongdoing ahead of time and for no good reason, it makes me wonder, real hard, “why?”

Even before I knew a thing about the soldier involved...or his family...something didn't seem right about this.Five top knuckledragging terrorists for one of our guys? Yikes! Then I see the father.Very weird looking dude.Then I discover he's a moslem.Yikes again.

Something's wrong here.Maybe even *very* wrong.

...for wanting to help the Taliban, a goal he shares with our Muslim president. Together, they succeeded in getting five Taliban leaders back on the battlefield against our country. Where is that “Mission Accomplished” banner?

“...I believe some of our troops were killed looking for Bowe. Bowe’s parents are radical leftists....”
*********************************************************************

Yes, six were killed in the search for the (likely) this deserter who walked away from his post to the Taliban.

It’s disgusting to observe the process whereby his family, the media and the Obama regime are trying to establish a myth of him being noble and a hero. Actually, it’s BEYOND DISGUSTING.

I’m not confused. This guy is a frikkin’ traitor. No wonder 0 got him out, but it was just a ruse to release the terrorists in Gitmo.

Meanwhile, one of our Marines is languishing in a Mexican jail. What about him?!

Obviously what happened was “I’ll get myself captured, and convert, tell the Taliban tons of confidential things. Then I’ll get them to swap me for some of their top guys.”

Father may or may not have been involved, but you know Obama has gotta hop on this. He stands with the muslims, remember?

And, of course, the son is a muzzie convert. Just look at the beard. Today I noticed that the daddy quickly had that disgusting head of hair washed and combed - although it still looked like a year old bird’s nest.

Yeah, and if you look at the comments for this video, it’s amazing how many “Thank the President for getting our Bowe back” type posts there are.

Maybe the Regime is on to something. Maybe there are enough soft headed people out there that they won’t think or look beyond “he got our Bowe back”. Maybe there are enough that the outrage the informed feel won’t matter.

Lord, I hope not.

Very demoralizing to the families of the men who died or severed life changing wounds in the operations that captured these Taliban or those that were killed in operations that tried to find this man who walked away from his unit unarmed.

Exactly right. His father spewing some Arabic lingo there, just to twist the knife.

I have a feeling we will find that he has always been into Islam and the military was a cover....just like Hasan.

My reasoning is that the father learned Pashtu. Perhaps he already knew Pashtu...the language of the terrorists??

Then there's the growing of the beard by the father.

And I believe the father mentioned allah in speaking with his son. (Checking again on this).

This is what Benghazi would have turned into had it gone according to plan.

A setup kidnapping to trade for the Blind Sheik.

Remember, nwo financial elite strategies:

get the world’s muslim sheeple to understand that the US government is - and has been for decades - embracing islam

keep the American people thinking that the US government needs to fight terrorism on their behalf

US intel operates / infliltrates / sponsors / works with arabic and muslim terror groups. On the record, it’s to “inflitrate our enemies”, win hearts and minds of everyday muslims. Off the record, it means that nwo financial elites can get US intel to cooperate to support black ops that are revolutions, kidnappings, terrorist attacks, etc., and this is branded publicly as coming from islam, even though they are us-gov’t-sponsored. US intel is not connected to it in the news; US intel is seen as “fighting” terrorism. Once you blur the lines enough, and operatives are trained to deal with “morally ambiguous” situations, US operatives will operate as illegitimate rogue operatives without questioning.

slowly transition the American people, including those in the US military, to think that terrorism is more about Christianity than islam; make islam one of America’s religions. In order to do this, sheeple in muslim countries must be encouraged to migrate to the US, and the US sheeple must be encouraged to accept them.
