Taliban claim captured U.S. solider has converted to Islam and is teaching bomb-making skills

A captured American soldier is training Taliban fighters bomb-making and ambush skills, according to one of his captors and Afghan intelligence officials.

Private Bowe Bergdahl disappeared in June 2009 while based in eastern Afghanistan and is thought to be the only U.S. serviceman in captivity.

The 24-year-old has converted to Islam and now has the Muslim name Abdullah, one of his captors told The Sunday Times.

A Taliban deputy district commander in Paktika, who called himself Haji Nadeem, told the newspaper that Bergdahl taught him how to dismantle a mobile phone and turn it into a remote control for a roadside bomb.

Nadeem claimed he also received basic ambush training from the U.S. soldier.

'Most of the skills he taught us we already knew,' he said. 'Some of my comrades think he's pretending to be a Muslim to save himself so they wouldn't behead him.'

At least his home town has canceled the parade for this traitor. He apparently taught the Taliban more than badminton.

The Kenyan does not care about Bergdahl, he just wanted an excuse to release his Muzzie buddies.

Pinging Persevero.

Maybe you will defend this too, since you appear to be a good buddy of the traitor Bowe Bergdahl.

Considering what I’ve read these past few hours I believe it.

The Code of Conduct for all US Servicemen:

I

I am an American, fighting in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.

II

I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender the members of my command while they still have the means to resist.

III

If I am captured I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and to aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.

IV

If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me and will back them up in every way.

V

When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am required to give name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies or harmful to their cause.

VI

I will never forget that I am an American, fighting for freedom, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

Wow...how many violations did Bergdahl commit? Yes, there needs to be an investigation, followed by a court martial is enough evidence can be found. If convicted, there should be an execution, not a protracted prison sentence.

Of course, what will happen is a sham investigation, he'll be cleared of all charges and promoted to SSG...yet another slap in the face to all NCOs, past and current.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
