Former Officer: Soldiers Were ´Threatened´ If They Questioned Bergdahl Story
Breitbart ^ | 6/2/14 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 06/02/2014 12:33:27 PM PDT by Nachum

A former U.S. officer who served in Afghanistan with Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl claims that soldiers were threatened by U.S. authorities if they questioned his story. After he was captured, Bergdahl said on a video from his captors that he lagged behind on patrol, although other sources in the military suggested anonymously that he walked away from his post. “Not only has this nebulous non-story been put out for years but you know these soldiers of 4th Brigade 25th Infantry Division were threatened with legal repercussions if they spoke about Bergdahl. Everybody officially mandated silencing of what we saw has been so frustrating,”

Someone is about to have the dogs of war unleashed upon him by the IRS, OSHA, EPA, and every other alphabet agency in the federal government.

I hope he has his affairs in order.

Colonel David Hunt,a regular guest of the Howie Carr Show in Boston,is on with Howie right now.A caller told Howie and the Colonel that he was part of the search team that looked for this guy and that the Army forced them to sign an agreement stating they wouldn't say a word about it publicly.

Lousy reporting-——the officer is just referred to by his last name (I assume that’s what it is).

No rank—no full name.

No rank—no full name.

Here's the article he wrote: We Lost Soldiers in the Hunt for Bergdahl, a Guy Who Walked Off in the Dead of Night

The author is Nathan Bradley Bethea. He doesn't state his rank, though.

The next morning, Bergdahl failed to show for the morning roll call. The soldiers in 2nd Platoon, Blackfoot Company discovered his rifle, helmet, body armor and web gear in a neat stack. He had, however, taken his compass. His fellow soldiers later mentioned his stated desire to walk from Afghanistan to India.

Oh! I forgot to mention, “What difference does it make?” [So what if a few good soldiers (6?) lost their lives searching for this deserter?]

From what I’ve read, Bergdahl was a muzzie `hiwi’, short for Hilfswilligen, lit. “those willing to help.”
The Germans used a number of them—captured Russians—at Stalingrad to do their scut work.
They were anxious to please, hard working and loyal.
As you can imagine, when the Soviets re-took Stalingrad, the hiwis found themselves in a world of hurt.

But our hiwi was `rescued’ by surrendering-over a terrorist starting lineup.
He should face a military court of inquiry, but he’s being feted and celebrated by the left, and it looks like he’ll be promoted.

Whether it’s illegals demanding citizenship with all its rights, venal politicians or treacherous soldiers ... what do you get when you reward/fail to punish bad behavior?
Anybody? Ferris?

But Obama said “The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide. So if Obama doesn’t want the truth disclosed, what’s he trying to hide?

“Frankly, we don’t give a s–t why he left,” one White House official said at the time. “He’s an American soldier. We want to bring him home.”

Of course they wanted to bring him home. They needed to tidy up loose ends before the full Afghan surrender. It wouldn’t look good if we still had an American soldier on the books as a POW after we left. Obama didn’t want to look bad.

Now that the truth is emerging, they may wish that they had left things alone. The story about the Non disclosure agreement has been out there for some time in military circles, but it’s not worth much now, the cat’s out of the bag.

Both situations involved everyone in signing non-disclosure papers. Hopefully someone might break out with more Benghazi info because of the bravery of the men that are now speaking out about Bergdahl..

So basically from the gitgo the military knew Bergdahl had deserted. Otherwise why try to keep people from talking about it? There is no other reason.

A forced signature on an agreement is “signing under duress”, hence not enforceable as to the provisions of such an agreement. On the other hand, if they still have you by the short hairs, such as the military would have to make your life miserable, that legal escape clause might be of little consolation.

I think Garwood took up arms and led commie patrols against his own countrymen. After hearing his alleged comments about hating the country and the Army and seeing his father I believe this guy deserted.

Obama, the most devastating terrorist attack to touch American soil. Will we ever find out who owns and operates this Kenyan jihadist? Whatever is going on with this Bergdahl story, it is clear the risk of not cooperating with the terrorists was greater than the backlash that is occurring.
