Skip to comments.POW dadís bizarre deleted tweet raises questions about Obamaís prisoner swap
Posted on 06/01/2014 7:16:58 AM PDT by jimbo123
A Twitter posting by the father of the serviceman released from Taliban captivity Saturday in exchange for five prisoners from Guantanamo Bay is raising deep questions about what exactly the Obama administration did to get Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl out of Afghanistan.
Heres the tweet, which Robert Bergdahl posted May 28 before his sons release and deleted Saturday, according to Twitchy.com.
Whatever else it might be, God will repay for the death of every Afghan child, ameen! doesnt sound like a rousing call to patriotism.
ABalkhi is the Twitter handle of Abdulqahar Balkhi, a Taliban spokesman.
Its important to remember the elder Bergdahl posted the message while his son was still in captivity and might have been willing to say anything while talking to the sergeants captors. Its also unclear whether the tweet was intended to be public.
But the contents of the posting are making a lot of people suspicious.
The circumstances of Bergdahls capture are already odd no one knows why he left that Army base five years ago and a USA story published Saturday shows Bergdahl is thought by many in the military to have either deserted or gone AWOL.
Also, the release of Guantanamo Bay terrorists in exchange for him violates a longstanding U.S. policy of not negotiating at least publicly with terrorist organizations. It also violated U.S. law that requires Congress to receive 30 days notice before Gitmo prisoners are released, according to top Republicans on the House and Senate armed services committees.

Its not the only bizarre tweet. Plenty of the ones remaining are pretty bad but you better grab them before they evaporate.
The New York Times doesn't care if democrats break the law...because they're biased jerks...
1 traitor for 5 terrorists — what a deal.
I imagine Obama’s thugs are having them removed.
I would surgically implant trackers in all five of them, and as soon as they return to their terrorist buds, I’d drop a MOAB on them all.
thanks for posting.
Strange bunch of sentiments there indeed
That strikes me as being very plausible. The misspelling of "amen" would seem to indicate he was insincere.
But who knows. What would I be willing to say or do if it was my child? I hope I never have to find out.
Hmmmmmm......that seems like kind of an odd message from old Bob. Do you suppose he was writing about punishing those thugs who kill girls in Afghanistan for going to school?
It will be very telling when this Traitor is returned to the US, just how accommodating the islamist soebarkah regime will be.
It's the new and improved new math endorsed by the Common Core standards.
The whole thing stinks to high heaven IMHO!
Boldly Obama scandalizes. Mission creep to becoming an Islamic Republic.
The guy begs for impeachment and removal.
He spelled it the way it’s usually transliterated from Arabic to English. It was no mistake, and was meant to show where his sympathies lay.
Is it OK to say I hate beards?
muslim traitor!(in my opinion)
Ameen is the Arabic version of the word Amen which has its origins in Hebrew and means ‘so be it’. Ameen is often said after a supplication (dua) with the spiritual meaning: “O Allah, respond to (or answer) what I/we have said”.
Ameen is often mentioned in the daily prayers of most Muslims after the recitation of the opening surah from the Quran.
I would need to see some of his thoughts from before his son was captured.
The son is a deserter & a traitor, and the father gives aid & comfort to the enemy. And of course Obama lionizes both...not surprised or shocked. It takes one to know one.
Would the POS 0dumbo or his staff have told the traitor’s father before the exchange that odumbo was violating law to get the traitor freed>
as much as I despise that POS 9dumbo I don’t think anyone alerted the father beforehand
well at least I hope not
It also violated U.S. law
A larger strategy is at work here. This is just one of many cases and a continuing trend of expanded use of executive power. Violate a law here, another law there, bypass congress, impose regulations by agency mandate, legislate on the fly, refuse to testify, etc. Get the populace used to the idea of absolute and arbitrary rule.
We must be some of those backward people who do not understand the nuances of the Bozo's sophisticated foreign policy. /sarc.
and why is Bergdahl’s dad wearing a taliban beard? what a creep
I thought so too, until I read the tweet. Yikes! The clarity was stunning. The context was obvious.
AND.. Daddy is in no hurry to recant.
AND.. Republicans are being smarmied by the administration, by way of the words, “Israel does it.” (Prisoner exchanges.)
Be ready for those words ad nauseum.
The GOP needs to play a smart strategy here. Let the guy play us for fools while we look for evidence.
A few years ago, long before Duck Dynasty, I was in a crowd of people and I was standing next to a guy with a DD type beard. He was obviously a street person, not a TV star and a small roach crawled out of his beard and onto his shoulder. He didn’t seem to notice so it must have happened a lot.
I'm already sick of 'em.
If Republicans had any gonads they'd come back with, is it illegal under Israeli law?
'Course we know 'pubs have no 'nads so best to let Soetoro have his day.
Maybe another good thing Republicans could come back with is, "Okay. If we are going to do things Israel's way, let's do things Israel's way."
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I don't add you to the list...
I'm starting a new job Monday. This will impact my ability to quickly ping to this list. Don't worry if I don't promptly ping list to an article you've told me about. I'll get there. Eventually.
Now that is creepy —
Put the father and son on the trading block and see what we can get for them.
"The circumstances of Bergdahls capture are already odd no one knows why he left that Army base five years ago and a USA story published Saturday shows Bergdahl is thought by many in the military to have either deserted or gone AWOL."
I was wondering when someone was going to bring that up. It's the first time I've read it since talk of his release started flying...I remember when he went missing: NO ONE goes anywhere off-base alone. I'm suspicious of both the father AND his son...the whole thing stinks, right on up to the WH and their statements on loosening the requirements of the laws governing such prisoner exchanges...
It can’t get any lower then this. The US has just released five hardened Islamic terrorists in exchange for an American traitor, who they will welcome as a hero. You just can’t make this stuff up. The saddest thing about this is that the American people will not pull themselves away from their favorite reality show to even notice.
Next time we are hit, and we will be hit,and when you see a burst of flag waving from the American people in response, remember it is mostly all phony. We as a people do not have the stones to see it thru. We do not have the staying power or the ruthlessness needed to win. I hate to say it, but as a people the 21st Century American has become a loser.
The evidence is amassing. Enough to mire the president in more controversy and scandal, but as if this is the whole point.
The administration is boldly fast tracking to the implosion of Constitutional law.
He has to be impeached and removed from office. He begs for it now, openly.
The islamists who are now directing the White House have once again been able to do the maximum damage to US interests at the time of their own choosing. Anyone still think they are just a bunch of hapless idiots who keep succeeding despite themselves?
Obama would give away all of our nuclear secrets if he could. And maybe he can, with the compliant military brass we seem to have these days.
Two years left and counting. God help us.
This is just one of many cases and a continuing trend of expanded use of executive power. Violate a law here, another law there, bypass congress, impose regulations by agency mandate, legislate on the fly, refuse to testify, etc. Get the populace used to the idea of absolute and arbitrary rule.
This is why Hillary would be much more dangerous if elected in 2016 than I think she would have been if elected instead of Obama. Obama has set a precedent of lawlessness with no checks/balances or anyone stopping him. The level of lawlessness has blazed a path through previously “uncharted waters” that it will be easy for Hillary to follow. I don’t know that she would have had the guts to do all that Obama has done if she’d been elected instead of him. Obama needs to be impeached and removed from office - IMO, that’s the only way to stop this lawless behavior by him and future presidents. Will it happen? Not a chance - the political will, integrity and backbone to do it are not present in Congress, nor in the country because his power and popularity flow from his skin color.
“It also violated U.S. law that requires Congress to receive 30 days notice before Gitmo prisoners are released,”
Let’s see what congress does in response. Their past refusal to slap down an executive who does as he damn well pleases is noted.
This swap just theater to give Obama cover for releasing the five terrorists.
Once the noise from this one dies down he will find some other way to justify realease of more of his fellow Islamists.
