Skip to comments.Bowe Bergdahl, U.S. soldier held by Taliban, was "ashamed to be American," emails show (Flashback)
Posted on 06/01/2014 8:51:00 AM PDT by Perdogg
Emails an American soldier reportedly sent to his parents before he was captured by the Taliban three years ago suggest he was disillusioned and considering deserting.
Bowe Bergdahl told his parents he was "ashamed to even be American" and was disgusted with the U.S. mission in Afghanistan and with the Army, according to emails quoted in Rolling Stone magazine.

was this for Bergdahl or was it to get Obama and his family off the hit list for the killing Osama bin Laden
Why is CBS reporting this? It makes Obama look bad.
This is just more Kabuki theater designed to give Obama an excuse to release five muslim terrorists.
Definately one of obammy’s people.
I noticed he didn’t shave his beard. Did he convert to Islam? Is anybody asking?
1. Obama’s PR numbers will improve marginally and temporarily.
2. The Taliban will know that we are, in fact and for at least another couple of years, their friend. This in turn will lead to a short pause in their aggressive efforts to destroy our way of life.
He can be best friends with the Dixie Chick, Natalie, whatsherface
There’s a reason why they did not kill him in a gruesome way. I don’t like to speculate about a pow’s motives, but how he got captured raises all sorts of questions.
Kabuki/Fellini on a real bad acid trip.
I am sick and tired of this show!
There is something very bad going on here, in my opinion. I see this as a release of high Ranking Islamist for something else besides this deserter ? Are we being black mailed ? There is something besides this guy that we wanted. I think it is weapons that we gave them to use on Qaddafi but just a guess. This is the strangest thing in a sea of scandal after scandal. This guy joined the enemy and his Father was Tweeting crap aiding the enemy? Who’s side is this horrible president on.
Which is why I suggest the Hugin Doctrine—only go to war if you intend to destroy the enemy regime and kill their leaders.
Oops, I responded to the wrong thread. Never mind.
Seems there’s a possibility this guy walked off from his post AWOL.
No wonder Obama wanted him released.
Belive it or not Jake Tapper is actually apparently trying to contact that soldier who is telling the truth about what happened when Bergdahl waltzed off base in Afghanistan. If its true this whole thing is just insane.
Who promoted a deserter from PFC to SGT ????
This has been planned for years.
The biggest country music singer in the USA.
(Please remove ‘ry music singer’.)
6 islamic terrorists were released.
Sounds like a setup......Soldier willingly goes to the Taliban, they pretend he’s a POW in order to arrange a trade.
This is fishy. Somewhat reminiscent of the Nicholas Berg story. I hope this Admin gets to the bottom of why Bergdahl was missing. But I doubt they will tell the truth. If Bergdahl is indeed a traitor, he needs to be punished. And the 5 who were released need to be taken care of.
That deal was even when they gave up Seal Team 6 and ran lawyers, guns and money to Al Qeada in Syria. This is a new deal. Perhaps Emperor Zero wants these 5 Taliban commanders running his covert ops in Syria.
I also always thought SEAL team 6 getting blown up was to appease the terrorists for killing Bin Laden - which I’m sure zero didn’t really want to do - he just wanted to be able to claim the credit.
Code of Conduct:
1. I am an American fighting man. I serve in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.
2. I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender my men while they still have the means to resist.
3. If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.
4. If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information, or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me and will back them up in every way.
5. When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am bound to give only name, rank, service number and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies or harmful to their cause.
6. I will never forget that I am an American fighting man, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.
I saw the disgusting photo/speech op of Obama with the Bergdahl parents. In addition to the Taliban style beard, the father spoke in some foreign language which I am guessing was Arabic. Based on this story, it’s beginning to look like the real reason Obama gained this person’s release is because he was a traitor to America and was in the process of deserting his unit. A win-win for Obama, since we will now have to deal with the book, the movie, etc. all illustrating how America is an evil nation.
well... I was wondering why Obama suddenly cared so much about a US Soldier.... this explains it.
Hussein must have just discovered this news.
Seal Team 6 was also about covering their tracks. Osama Bin Laden was on his death bed. That is why the deal was made. You should have seen the campaign ads Obama did here in Texas touting killing Osama and saving GM. Heck they almost got me to vote for him, but then I sobered up LOL
Obama never does anything to help make the country better..everything he does is for HIM and HIMSELF only..so I knew something didn’t smell right..nothing Obama does ever smells right..he wanted to take the focus off of the VA Scandal and every other scandal in his disgusting Administration
heard he was promoted twice whilst “in captivity”
In other words he is a democrat.
In return we get a useless, America-hating traitor who is probably a fifth columnist, and we get to watch his Osama-bearded, Army-badmouthing father go on a publicity tour.
Dunno about him but his father is Muslim convert.
Send treats to the troops...
Great because you did it.

How casually we talk about the set-up killing of SEAL Team 6 by this administration to appease our sworn enemies or for whatever other rotten reason they were killed. This in itself is shocking. How many of us trust our own government anymore? How long will we even be able to say the words without being arrested for disagreeing with the government?
Yesterday there was an article about the Z Street pro-Isreal group who couldn’t get approved by the IRS because they “disagreed with the administration” - apparently this is a direct quote from an IRS agent. Where are the IRS whistleblowers on this stuff?
The lack of overwhelming outrage is as frightening as the actual crimes.
OK so he's a Democrat.

They are probably afraid of ending up like Seal Team 6.
