Skip to comments.U.S. concluded in 2010 that Bergdahl walked away (It's true)

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.
