Did U.S. trade five jihadists for one jihadist?
Jihad Watch ^ | 06-01-14 | Robert Spencer

Posted on 06/01/2014 10:47:44 AM PDT by JCG

The Taliban claimed in 2010 that [Sgt. Bowe] Bergdahl had converted to Islam and was teaching bomb-making to its jihadists. His father is a convert to Islam who has called for the release of the jihadists in Guantanamo and has implied that American troops are killing Afghan children.

There is evidence that he was not captured, but walked away from his unit: “On July 2, two U.S. officials told The Associated Press the soldier had “just walked off” his base with three Afghans after his shift.” So we may have traded five jihadists for one jihadist.

I imagine they are telling this guy to keep his mouth shut or there will be charges. There is no way Obama wants this guy confessing to being a muzzie.

If it is true, what would be the motive on Obama’s part?

Adam Baldwin is reporting a rumor that Bowe was taken in chains by US SF and that his manifest flight info said ‘prisoner’. Who knows though. I am sure Obama will put a fast stop to any military justice this man may or may not have coming.

It was all a Taliban shell game and Obama was the one doing the shuffling.

And Congress is mesmerized.

He sympathizes with the Muslims and his entire administration is infested with the Muslim Brotherhood. So who knows? I don’t think he gives a darn at this point. If another scandal can take the news cycle of current scandals, he likes that. Makes all his lawlessness look like partisan attacks to the lib sheep and low info voters.

“With the classic airs of another classic fumble”...

All great for show and tell for the naive.

Its too bad the majority of America is not smart enough to wake up and connect the dots. Instead it chooses to continue its path to ruination.

The times are right for that asshole Obama!

Maybe Obama's trying to get the good people to self identify and shake themselves out of the military (or intelligence).

Here's my advice - IF you're offended by what Obama’s done - AND you're in the military or intelligence - STAY PUT. We need you where you are... If this is what it appears to be you're more needed than ever...

Well, he and the doj put a stop (pretty much) to the issue of “work place violence” at Ft. Hood.

Congress is complicit, they know exactly what is going on. Otherwise, why are they silent?

What makes you think it’s a “fumble?”

Just another step in Obama’s plan to undermine our military and promote Islam. He didn’t fumble, he succeeded.

Yes.

And that, evidently, per the NYT, nothing will happen to him for Desertion, is a kick to the teeth of every veteran who ever held to Duty.

Once again so typical of this enemy islamist administration.

You're prolly correct. A traitor helping a traitor is more logical in this case.

By Obama's light, the terrorist in chief should sympathize with the Muslims, as Obama stated in this interview with George Stephenapolis.

It is his faith, afterall.

One “fake” prisoner (a jihadist who has been hanging out and plotting with his jihadist buddies for the last 5 years) is “let go”, as are 5 very dangerous terrorists.

In other words, 6 terrorists roaming free, laughing, planning, plotting.

This is treason.
