A captured American soldier is training Taliban fighters bomb-making and ambush skills, according to one of his captors and Afghan intelligence officials. Private Bowe Bergdahl disappeared in June 2009 while based in eastern Afghanistan and is thought to be the only U.S. serviceman in captivity. The 24-year-old has converted to Islam and now has the Muslim name Abdullah, one of his captors told The Sunday Times.

Betgdahl could do himself a huge favor if one of his first public statements is to say Allah and Mohammed can go sit on it and spin ....a public 100% repudiation of any so-called conversions . He should also condemn his father’s role in all of this

The Department of Defense will no-doubt reinstate him into the Army, build him a special mosque, and provide him with a radical Imam.

Correction on the Headline.

Taliban claim captured U.S. solider had converted to Islam, before he went AWOL and became a deserter.

> name Abdullah,

Abdullah means “Slave of Allah”.

I wonder how many of those are operating covertly within the armed forces and government.

This is another NSA failure.

His father’s proclaimed love for Islam and wanting to help free the Islamic Serial Killers in Gitmo was not noticed.

NSA was too busy spying on the people on our side.

I’m going to print this picture out and take it to the firing range this weekend and put a bunch of lead through it. It won’t change anything but it will be therapeutically satisfying.

He hasn’t just converted to Islam; he’s a terrorist operative.

There are bound to be PR flacks burning the midnight oil in the White Hut at the moment. Try spinning this one, especially if the guy comes back spouting praises for the Taliban. Quite a swap for five Taliban commanders, isn't it?

If they're smart Jihad Johnny is going to appear freshly shaven and with a cork firmly implanted epiglottis-deep. If they're stupid enough - and they are - Carole King is going to be presiding over another peace creep hate-the-U.S. nostalgia show and liberal hearts will sigh fondly for the good old flag-burning Vietnam days. And the rest of us will burn, precisely as intended.

Based upon his fathers words, it would be interesting to see what religion he declared when he entered.

[sarc] Gee, they really think so...?? [/sarc]

Wasn’t it a tip-off when his father started praying in Arabic in the White House Rose Garden (with Barack Obama smilingly standing alongside), using quotes from the Qur’an? Call me a suspicious type, but that sort of thing usually makes me wonder about someone’s non-Muslin credentials...

Does anyone have a “Captain Obvious” graphic?

Watch Obama smile as soon as Bergdahl gives the most famous Muslim expression, the “Bismillah” or the “Basmallah”:

Bergdahl ran away from his unit in a combat zone leaving his fellow American Soldiers open to defeat and slaughter.

Bergdahl only cares about himself and didn’t give a s**t about his fellow Soldiers. We could just as easily have had the headline

40 American Soldiers Slaughtered In Afghanistan!

I don’t think that will occur. I expect a John Kerry / Cindy Sheehan type of dismissal of the military will ensue once he makes his first statements either in an interview or press conference.
