03:34 PM ET Bergdahl's team leader: Intercepted radio chatter said he sought talks with the Taliban
CNN ^ | Tuesday June 3, 2014

Posted on 06/03/2014 1:39:51 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

(CNN) - Former Army Sgt. Evan Buetow was the team leader with Bowe Bergdahl the night Bergdahl disappeared.

"Bergdahl is a deserter, and he's not a hero," says Buetow. "He needs to answer for what he did."

Within days of his disappearance, says Buetow, teams monitoring radio chatter and cell phone communications intercepted an alarming message: The American is in Yahya Khel (a village two miles away). He's looking for someone who speaks English so he can talk to the Taliban.

"I heard it straight from the interpreter's lips as he heard it over the radio," said Buetow. "There's a lot more to this story than a soldier walking away."

The Army will review the case of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl "in a comprehensive, coordinated effort," Secretary of the Army John McHugh said Tuesday.

The review will include speaking with Bergdahl "to better learn from him the circumstances of his disappearance and captivity," he said.

John Kerry did this, and was rewarded with a permanent seat in the United States Senate by the people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Are you saying Bergdahl has a future in US politics? /S

Kerry was more clever in the way he used the media of the day to his advantage. Bergdahl is a latter day Jihad Johnny (remember him?).

Let me say in 2DV’s defense that on a few occasions, I become blue in the face about the vile things people in this Administration have done. TO the point that I can post or speak about things from the tip of a spear. And nowhere else.

Absolutely. Him and his teeth.

“Bergdahl is a deserter, and he's not a hero,”

I think Bergdahl is not only a deserter he is a traitor. He joined the Taliban and helped them wage war against American soldiers. He was not captured as Obama and the MSM maintain.

He willingly left his unit and joined the enemy.

The guy's father thanks allah from the US President's podium at the White House. Along with his platoon leaders first hand testimony, this seals the deal. This guy is a traitor who should be court martialed and shot upon confirmation of his guilt.

So a former American could convert to Islam and be turned into a hero for the MSM to use as conversion propaganda for the next month or two...

Remember the way the left was giddy about unearthing the truth of the Pat Tilman death?

That is matched only by the energy they’re putting into the coverup of Bergdahl.

In fact they have gotten very, very good about this coverup stuff. Because recently so often they have needed to be.

Secretary of the Army John McHugh: The review will include speaking with Bergdahl “to better learn from him the circumstances of his disappearance and captivity,”

And Bergdahl’s version of events will over ride any and all testimony from all who knew and served with him and know he deserted. And the “Welcome Home Parade” will be broadcast in full.

I think we’ve all known that instinctively. It’ll be proven. The MSM will cover it up, of course. I’m probably delusional, but I’m hoping the Left’s hubris will make the right person mad, and they’ll be held to account. Then we can get to the business of turning this country around.

The Clintons led the way in coverup in the 90's. Obama is just carrying on the tradition.

I read the book “American Spartan” about Major Jim Gant who lived with the Afghans to fight against the Taliban. He made great gains for the Army to protect the Afghan tribes. Taliban is an invader that killed many tribe members.

Undoubtedly, as the O doesn’t like to be dissed - there is strength in numbers, however, and for the first time since our PINO took office, the Media are actually not ignoring it. How could they when they took the bait on the initial “Euphoria” - Hah! Love it ;)

It was "very suspicious," says Buetow, noting that Bergdahl knew sensitive information about the movement of U.S. trucks, the weaponry on those trucks, and how soldiers would react to attacks.

So this is all about one traitor helping another using a treasonous act.

18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

Do those words mean anything or are they just window dressing? Direct act of treason leading to the death of 4 vets and a direct act of treason by the POTUS that no doubt will lead to more deaths.

HOW MUCH MORE OBVIOUS DOES THIS HAVE TO GET?

Obungler has already demonstrated that he and his brood will ignore the law at will.

Evidently, our masters in the government are above the laws that govern the plebes.

It will take something much, much bigger than this to serve as such a "wake-up call."
