Working to free all Guantanamo prisoners’ tweet from account of released soldier’s father deleted
Twitchy ^ | May 31, 2014 | Twitchy Staff

Posted on 06/01/2014 11:05:18 AM PDT by Mrs. Frogjerk

As Twitchy has reported, President Obama ordered the release of five Gitmo detainees to secure the return of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from his Taliban captors in Afghanistan.

Recently, a tweet was published from the account of Bowe Bergdahl’s father, Robert, which stated a desire to see all Gitmo detainees released.

Here’s the tweet from Bob Bergdahl’s account, which was published May 28 and deleted Saturday night (at the time of publication the deletion of the tweet has not been acknowledged on the account):

@ABalkhi I am still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners. God will repay for the death of every Afghan child, ameen!— Robert Bergdahl (@bobbergdahl) May 28, 2014

I found this link in the comments section of Twitchy. Please tell me that we didn’t free 5 very dangerous prisoners to free a supposed POW that may have really been a traitor!

Here is the link:

Please don’t let this be true!

The American people as supported by the lying media have been ignoring soooo many examples of zero’s thuggish and treasonous actions… all in the interest of partisan politics and not wanting to admit that they have just plain been duped. If this doesn’t spark an across the board outrage, then the country is lost and it has to be acknowledged that the Manchurian Candidate succeeded.

It’s the smell of putrid candies obama will be passing out when out servicepeople are killed by the terrorists the assh95e just released.

Yup!The rules do not apply to Obama. We are living under a tyrannical regime.

It’s a damned shame that we don’t have anybody within our government willing to do anything about it.

The Telegraph has another story, "Bowe Bergdahl: a darker story behind the release of America's last prisoner of war," with these excerpts about Bergdahl:
"These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid," he wrote in an email to his parents on June 27, 2009.

Three days later, according to Rolling Stone, the 23-year-old soldier simply walked off his base in Patika province, carrying a knife, his diary and a small camera.

He was captured almost immediately and - despite a frantic search by US troops, drones and helicopters - smuggled into Pakistan by Taliban fighters.

The Taliban's demands were high: they would exchange one low-ranking US soldier for five senior Afghan fighters being held at Guantánamo Bay.

This week, Mr Obama agreed. The Guantánamo detainees were released into the custody of Qatar while Sgt Bergdahl was handed over to American special forces near the Pakistani border.

The young soldier, who was healthy enough to walk to the helicopter that carried him to safety, is now being treated at a hospital in Germany.

Remember Clinton’s final executive orders on his last day in office?

Just wait. All those Gitmo prisoners are getting released.

"It’s a damned shame that we don’t have anybody within our government willing to do anything about it."

The Bergdahl story has more holes than a slice of swiss cheese:

1. The 30-day congressional notification law was ignored.

2. The ignoring of the law was supposedly done for "health and safety" reasons, but news accounts described Bergdahl as "healthy and able to walk."

3. Bergdahl is described as a POW, but there is strong evidence that he was a deserter.

4. Bergdahl emailed his parents that he was "ashamed to be an American."

5. In a Taliban propaganda film, Bergdahl lied about American rules of engagement and lied about his manner of capture.

6. Bergdahl has apparently converted to Islam and now holds views which may be pro-terrorist.

7. In a 2012 video, the Taliban claimed that Bergdahl was a convert to Islam and a willing participant in Taliban activities. Since the first part of this statement is apparently true, so may be the second part. In other words, Bergdahl might be guilty of treason.

8. According to at least one member of Bergdahl's unit, five American soldiers died in the search for Bergdahl.

But don't hold your breath for the MSM to delve into any of this. Obama has spoken.

What do you need, it to hit you up beside your head? Of course its true!

This turncoat was no more prisoner of Taliban than my freeroam dogs are my prisoners. They hang around because they like it here, so did the traitor.

This was all some smoke and mirrors to get the Taliban back to work.

Within a short time, the news will be that he’s gone back to his friends, maybe the muslim sympathizer dad too.

Obama has given the terrorists a useful bit of intelligence. The US will indeed negotiate with terrorists, and the going rate is 5 Gitmo detainees per US hostage. There will be 150 detainees left in Gitmo after this exchange. They are now incentivised to take at least 30 new hostages.

Dear father of the soldier who went for a sunday walk off his post, endangering his unit: Because of your son, who we are happy is alive, 5 terrorists have been released back into the warzone to go kill the Afgan children that you seem so concerned about, along with their mothers and fathers. Stew on that for a while. Love, America

At first I thought that may be his brother, turns out, that’s Bergdahl’s father. Then, I wondered about that beard. Some white american men do grow bushy beards like this, but most spend a little effort to groom it. I was struck at how stringy and unkempt the beard looked. Now, I’m hearing that both former prisoner and his father are Taliban Sympathizers. Bad scene all around. Outside of that one family’s joy in their son’s return, I can see nothing good coming of this for the country. There will be other kidnappings, bank on it.

I have minimal contact with the MSM, but I did catch a clip on the car radio about this.
They said Bergdahl’s home town was having a big celebration, with friends/neighbors delirious with joy.
The story shifted to spoilsport gloomy-gus Republicans who expressed concern over non-notification as required by law.
Then Susan Rice said it's all ok because the Administration had a small window and had to act immediately to save Bergdahl’s life.

Exactly. That’s how the MSM and Obama work hand-in-hand.

Any opposition is characterized as “gloomy gus”, sour grapes Republicans, opposing Obama just because he’s black. They can’t win.

Oh, It is even worse than even 'tin-hatters' like me would imagine.

Here is an excerpt of a story just posted at The Blaze:

".......When news of Sgt. Bergdahl’s release broke, I reached out to intelligence contacts who have operated in the Af/Pak region and are familiar with the situation. I wanted to discuss what was being reported – and more importantly - what wasn’t. The following is what they told me.

When Sgt. Bergdahl was picked up by the Haqqanis, he was described as /diwana/ – the Pashtu word for intoxicated. He was with two or three Afghan soldiers he had walked off his Forward Operating Base with. It is believed the group was en route to indulge in further intoxicants.

Once the Haqqanis had stumbled onto Sgt. Bergdahl, they moved quickly to secure him and move him out of Afghanistan into Pakistan.

This information was passed on to U.S. Special Operations Command, who contacted the powers that be in Kabul, who in turn reached out to Sgt. Bergdahl’s Forward Operating Base. According to my sources, the F.O.B. had not even noticed that Sgt. Bergdahl had failed to appear for muster that morning.

Until they could spirit Sgt. Bergdahl out of Afghanistan, the Haqqanis decided to hide him nearby among the nomads known locally as the ‘Koochi.’ And while the soldiers of Task Force 82 passed by, frantically searching for Sgt. Bergdahl, shouting “Bowe! Bowe!” not a single Koochi tent flap was lifted or even investigated. Had that been done, Bergdahl might have been discovered and rescued before the Haqqanis could sneak him into Pakistan.

The Haqqanis took Bergdahl into the Showal area of Northern Waziristan where he fell under the control of a man named Mullah Sangeen Zadran, the chief of operations for Siraj Haqqani – head of the Haqqani terror network. ...Contrary to press reports, the Afghan Taliban – aka the Quetta Shura - never had their hands on Sgt. Bergdahl. He was always under the control of the Haqqani network......."

FULL ARTICLE
....................................

I also have it on high authority that 0bama himself called off the search and rescue mission very early.

I certainly would like one of our prisoners back but here is a lot to think about.
I understand this fellow was AOL or away from his post without
approval when this happened.
What if he is one of them or been indoctrinated?
This will make every American abroad subject to kidnapping now!
What about our Marine in Mexico?
Obama is quick to jump here but would not defend our folks in Benghazi and was not even in contact the day shortly after it happened.
Obama makes his own laws and violates the laws we have on the books at his whim.
As for me and mine I will never convict anyone of anything again unless it is absolutely brutal until Obama has to answer for his criminal doings.
He is just looking for a way out to the American Public for the crap he is doing. He should be impeached!

Um, what the hell is going on here? I smell something really bad.

I will concede that as yet I cannot state categorically, that there seems to be a news black out. I have watched both Canadian and American networks. Certainly they are imbued with the human drama of it all and the persons concerned. Nothing wrong with getting the initial story out. They have done this with the Presidential statement and interviews with the man's family.

I notice one important item which is repeated; in that the Republicans are asking questions. This on the wisdom of giving up these homicidal men, thus setting a pattern. So far so good. I stand corrected, but nothing about the circumstances of this unfortunate man's capture. If I am right, then evidence exists of a mass self censorship carried on by the MSM.

Very disturbing indeed.

I have read either three or four strres now about what may or may not have happened to Bowe after he was captured. IMHO, the disinformaiton people are now on to this story to blurr what really happened. Seen it before with anythign to do with this regime where they have true jeopardy.Fuddy a perfect example.

Little new here.

The DBM has been selectively picking the stories that benefit the regime ever since zero was corronated years ago.

It's up to us, the New Media, to get the story/stories out. We need to take responsibility and stop counting on "the Old Media" to do the right thing.They have a completely different agenda which we are well aware of by now.

If we don't do it,it won't get done.
