POW dadís bizarre deleted tweet raises questions about Obamaís prisoner swap
Biz Pac Review ^ | 6/1/14 | Joe Saunders

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.

Here’s the tweet, which Robert Bergdahl posted May 28 – before his son’s release – and deleted Saturday, according to Twitchy.com.

Whatever else it might be, “God will repay for the death of every Afghan child, ameen!” doesn’t sound like a rousing call to patriotism.

ABalkhi is the Twitter handle of Abdulqahar Balkhi, a Taliban spokesman.

It’s 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 sergeant’s captors. It’s 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 Bergdahl’s 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.

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.

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.

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.
