Skip to comments.U.S. concluded in 2010 that Bergdahl walked away (It's true)
Posted on 06/02/2014 4:28:48 PM PDT by servo1969
A Pentagon investigation concluded in 2010 that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his unit, and after an initial flurry of searching the military decided not to exert extraordinary efforts to rescue him, according to a former senior defense official who was involved in the matter.
Instead, the U.S. government pursued negotiations to get him back over the following five years of his captivity a track that led to his release over the weekend.
Bergdahl was being checked and treated Monday at a U.S. military hospital in Germany as questions mounted at home over the swap that resulted in his freedom in exchange for the release of five detainees who were sent to Qatar from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo, Cuba.
Even in the first hours of Bergdahl's handoff to U.S. special forces in eastern Afghanistan, it was clear this would not be an uncomplicated yellow-ribbon celebration. Five terrorist suspects also walked free, stirring a debate over whether the exchange would heighten the risk of other Americans being snatched as bargaining chips and whether the released detainees several senior Taliban figures among them would find their way back to the fight.

She wouldn't lie to me, would she?
Wait until Obama finds out about this....boy I hate to be in Rice's shoes when Obama's mad...
Taliban: Trade you five terrorists for one terrorist.
I guess 0h0m0 didn’t see this in the paper back then.
That the Associated Press reported it.
This is currently the headlining article on Yahoo News. And the comments are devastating. You can almost feel the outrage. It's making the IRS, VA, and Benghazi scandals look trivial, in comparison.
Obama approved a deal with terrorists, for a deserter. It can't get much worse than that.
Or can it?
If they are this blatant about the lie of the whole, “Separated during combat ops,” fable, something much bigger is going on.
And it ain’t gonna be good.
Abd reports indicate the five fine, young men died while out looking for his sorry *ss.
I guess I’m going squirrelly.
Obama and his team can’t have done this without a plan, could they?
This has to deliberate.
Soros wouldn’t let him do something this stupid by accident.
Or is he being setup to take a dive for Hillary?
What’s the long game here?
That’s it. I’m losing it.
When will he get his first star pinned on?
That the Associated Press reported it.
That fact suggests the media does not think this story can be buried.
As former soldiers speak out on this story it has become clear they will not be silenced. Soldiers who were willing to give their lives for their comrades and their country are not going to back down.
Thank God for honorable and truthful men.
This son of bitch needs to be checked and proceed right to courts martial proceedings. Instead he’ll get a general discharge.
I do have my tin foil hat on but seriously; things are just too damn blatant anymore. Zero is being sacrificed politically (and possibly worse depending on "what" gets out). What oh what will he do to remain relevant?
Read this, and maybe it will make sense:
If it's true, this is much bigger than anyone is seeing.
Bammie may have finally stepped over it.
Bring him home and then hang him
And then drone the five taliban commanders in Bahrain.
Well, guys, really....they had to do SOMETHING to get the VA scandal off the front pages. It was, and is, eating them alive. However, this little tidbit will add to it rather than take away. It’s definitely waaaayyyyyy past time to impeach the POS.
As long as the flukes get their free abortions, the homosexuals get their marriage, and the takers get their EBT cards, none will care about this.
You left out a part:
Obama: “Does this move diminish our arrogance in the world and support all those that the US and the West have suppressed for so long? Does this ‘humble’ the US? OK. Done!”
I’ve gotta admit, I was surprised at the boldness of trotting Rice out on the Sunday talk shows to discuss this given her past on Middle-Eastern-Issues-on-Sunday-Talk-Shows...
Are we supposed to think she’s a credible spokesperson? Anything she says should automatically be assumed to be the opposite.
In an article Monday on the Daily Beast website that Bergdahl was not on patrol, as some reports have suggested.
“There was no patrol that night,” he wrote. “Bergdahl was relieved from guard duty, and instead of going to sleep, he fled the outpost on foot. He deserted. I’ve talked to members of Bergdahl’s platoon_including the last Americans to see him before his capture. I’ve reviewed the relevant documents. That’s what happened.”
The president, as commander in chief, has sole authority to order the launch of nuclear weapons.
Yea, so concerned that they held out for five of the most virulent enemies America has.
Where's my comment? Ah, here it is!
None Dare Call It Treason!

***Boldness? Sure but I’d say more like arrogance, in your face taunting. They’ll keep pushing because the media carries their water & GOP afraid to be called racists. Whomever thought this would get the VA scandal out of the limelight is sadly mistaken. This “swap” stinks to high heaven.
I also read that he was drunk & wandered off. So many stories floating around..
Howie Carr and Col. David Hunt of Fox had an interesting radio program this past afternoon. One of the guys who went looking for Bergdahl called in.
I read that, too.
Drunk is NOT an excuse.
we can dream!
“to Dream The Impossible Dream...”
when TIme Magazine goes off on this as they already have....barry MAY be in real trouble.
When the TIME READERS get fed up with barry..he may have a meltdown
Heck ... He has already been deemed by the President to have performed "Honorable Service" to this country. My guess is that Mr. Bergdahl is about to suffer some kind of medical complication and will be unable to reveal his side of the story. Either permanently or for at the very least until after the Mid-term elections.
I think this guy is not just a deserter, He’s an operative. He is now a muslim and is at war with the U.S. Along with Obamas help they helped get 5 major figures for the Taliban freed to re-enter a war against the U.S.
They’ll claim he was a CIA operative working undercover...
And that it is all classified so they can’t say anymore...
So don’t ask anymore questions...
Ghost, Da NSA has got the goods on everyone.
I’d really like to see that Snowden/Greenwald list.
Col. David Hunt on BOR’s just said that this worthless deserter cost the lives of 14 brave soldiers sent out to search for him.
Col. David Hood stated that Bergdahl called the base on a cell phone a day or so after he left and TOLD them he deserted! Also, he stated that there have been 14 American’s killed while looking for this POS.
Correction. It’s Col. David Hunt. Not Hood.
He also mailed his uniform home and left his rifle behind before leaving, so he clearly was not “on patrol.” But obviously, the Taliban wasn’t going to say, oh, see, he just walked up and joined us...cool!
Ugghh, makes me sick to my stomach..
These five will spend a year pre-release in Qatar where they can be recruited to support the rebel struggle in Syria, killing Shiites (including Iran and Hezbolah insurgents) and Alewites (Shiite sect, to include the Assad regime). The Taliban has a pension for killing Shiites, one of these guy is proportedly responsible for the death of 7,000 Shiites. In some cases cutting their throats in front of their wife and children.
This is what Obama (Sunni Muslim), the Muslim Brotherhood (Sunni), the Suadis (Sunni) and Qataris (Sunni) all want.
The Taliban will be on our side now. Hurray! /sarc
Whoa. Mailed his uniform home? Planned well, didn’t he?
Hang him. He caused the deaths of 14 brave soldiers according to Col. Hunt, whom I believe and trust.
When you're an Obama boot licker it comes easy.
Now, if you are a Marine held in a Mexican prison, well, you get my point.
Now that the next election looks like a blowout for the Dems, Obama is becoming dispensable. He is now a lame duck and might not even make it to the finish line. The man hasn’t been cultivating too many friends.
Yes it can. There have been numerous times, when I thought those slime bags could not stoop any lower, only to see them stoop lower. Yes, it can, and probably will get worse.
Hopefully this will become the Commander in Frauds undoing.
AARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHH Susan Rice is a POS, and POS is not a harsh enough term for that demonic witch.
Deserters need to be treated like deserters.
Obama helping a fellow Traitor.
Who would have seen that one coming?/s
Now you've gone and jinxed us.
