“Major classified file” on Bergdahl; concerns he “may have been an active collaborator with...
Jihad Watch ^ | 6/2/2014 | Robert Spencer

Posted on 06/03/2014 3:14:28 AM PDT by markomalley

Did nobody bother to tell Obama about these concerns that Bergdahl was a collaborator? Or was it that they did tell him, and he didn’t care, and sent the jihad terror leaders home anyway? There needs to be a full investigation of this, but the Leftist mainstream media is already starting to cover for Obama and ridicule concerns about it, so it is unlikely that there will be any significant effort to discover what really happened here.

“Sources: Intelligence community investigated Bergdahl’s conduct,” by James Rosen, FoxNews.com, June 2, 2014:

A senior official confirms to Fox News that the conduct of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl — both in his final stretch of active duty in Afghanistan and then, too, during his time when he lived among the Taliban — has been thoroughly investigated by the U.S. intelligence community and is the subject of “a major classified file.”

In conveying as much, the Defense Department source confirmed to Fox News that many within the intelligence community harbor serious outstanding concerns not only that Bergdahl may have been a deserter but that he may have been an active collaborator with the enemy.

The Pentagon official added pointedly that no relevant congressional committee has sought access to the classified file, but that if such a request were made, key committee chairs would, under previous precedent, likely be granted access to it. Separately, the Pentagon confirmed Monday that it is looking into claims Americans died during the search for Bergdahl.

The administration announced over the weekend that Bergdahl’s release had been secured, in exchange for five Taliban prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. President Obama was joined by the soldier’s parents in making a public statement on the release Saturday evening from the Rose Garden.

Sources told Fox News that many officials in the Executive Branch are “quite baffled” by the White House’s decision to allow the president to stand alongside Bergdahl’s father this past weekend, given the father’s history of controversial statements, emails and online posts.

Asked Monday about reports that Bergdahl’s father was communicating on Twitter with a man described as a Taliban spokesman, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney declined to comment on those reports but defended the administration’s handling of the release.

“The fact is they are the parents of Sergeant Bergdahl. Their son was held in captivity for five years,” he said. “And it was absolutely the right thing to do, for the commander in chief, for this administration to take action to secure his release, the last prisoner of war from the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.”

Asked whether Obama stands by National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s claim Sunday that Bergdahl served with “distinction,” Carney said the president “stands by actions that he took as commander in chief” to secure his release.

Another administration official, whose duties are focused on counterterrorism, told Fox News when asked about the status of any investigations into Bergdahl’s initial disappearance and his conduct over the last five years: “Everybody’s looking at this. He’s not going to get a free pass” in the interrogations that Bergdahl will face during his repatriation process. “He’s going to have a lot of questions to answer — a lot. Is he a hero? No.”

Although this source had not seen the classified file described by the Pentagon source, the counterterrorism official agreed that given the high priority attached to the Bergdahl case over the last five years, the need for clarity about Bergdahl’s actions before and during his time with the Taliban “would have been a high priority for intelligence tasking.”

Asked if the process of repatriation would include questioning of Bergdahl geared towards determining whether he engaged in any forms of collaboration with the enemy, the counterterrorism official replied: “Of course. … It’s there. This is extremely untidy.”…

Their son was held in captivity for five years,” he said.

So he said, while to the casual observer, it appears he stayed of his free will.................

We trade five terrorists to the Taliban for a deserter, but we do nothing for a doctor who is in prison in Pakistan for helping us catch Bin Laden. That is the Obama Doctrine: Bow down to your enemies, and betray your friends.

What difference does it make now?

Now - Bergdahl.

Then - Edward (Eddie) D. Slovik, US 3rd Army, 28th Infantry Division "Keystone Division". Executed (by firing squad) on 31Jan45. Offense: Desertion in time of War, and

Convicted of Collaboration in time of War, "Toyko Rose" - served long prison sentence in United States.

The difference is: One very different country.

Obama isn’t stupid. He and his Islamic loving handlers knew exactly what they were doing. The enemy within is out to destroy this country. And they are being allowed to do it with the help of a worthless congress.

I thought he had fallen out of the Out House. God, his kids are going to grow up to be like Alger Hiss’s kids, the lies will go on forever.

Actually, for some reason the MSM is following the deserter side of the story. Crowley was tough in Rice Sunday...CNN has it as a lead story, even Lean Forward MSNBC was openly discussing it with Mike Rogers (R) this morning. Obama May have finally stepped over the edge even for the MSM. If that happens, he is toast, they are the only things”protecting” him.

I really dont understand what is taking place here.

I am highly suspicious as to the media coverage.

In the back of my mind I wonder if this was a CIA caper and that is why Obama is letting the hounds loose.

So much for choice “a” and choice “b”. I go with choice “c”:

Bergdahl’s collaboration was a good thing to the Omuslim.

I’m surprised the 5 were sent to another country. They would be quite at home in Michigan or Tennessee.

He could have even agreed to the swap so he could go home to visit family AND secure the release of superior officers.

I heard on FNC last night or this a.m. that the Pentagon did NOT classify him as a POW. Don’t they normally classify a solider as POW if they are being held by the enemy? I don’t want to go overboard because I’m not as informed about these things; but, I seem to recall that in the past, if DOD thought/knew a member of our Armed Forces was being held, they gave them the POW classification.

They’re just talking about these guys on FNC. One of them is wanted by the UN for war crimes. Obummer is going to fall out of grace with the UN (or at least some of the members).

“FINAL stretch of his tour of duty”??????

Every report I have heard is that he was very new to that ‘tour of duty’ and had been there only about 2 months!!!!

Since most tours of duty that we have been told about for years seem to run into the 12 month type of time frame, this wasn’t the end of this punks tour. It was the beginning.

He is a deserter. I hop[e he goes to prison. They can also prosecute his father for giving aid & comfort to the enemy.

I have to think that Obama was not aware of the full story. His people led him astray again. This should have been done quietly. It's been all down hill since the second Obama appeared on camera with Bergdahl's mom and dad

The decision to do the swap was made at the highest levels of the administration, Valarie Jarrett said, “Do it.”
