Posted on 06/04/2014 5:10:01 AM PDT by CodeJockey
The Taliban released a video Wednesday purporting to show the moment former prisoner Bowe Bergdahl was handed over to American custody.
The 17-minute video, sent to NBC News by a known Taliban spokesman, shows both sides quickly shaking hands before a clean-shaven Bergdahl is handed over.

Shaking hands and waving at the Taliban I'm shocked, we are treating them like friendly foes when they are TERRORISTS!
QUOTE: “The Americans were informed about the 18 armed militants who would be present on the hilltops and had asked questions about Bergdahls health and even facial hair before the swap, the commander adds.”
The Obama administration forever managing optics must have demanded Bergdahl be shaved.
Imagine, this was suppose to be a propaganda coup for Obama. That handshake at the landing site, etc.
(Does NBC/MSNBC have an ongoing group chat email with the Taliban?)
He looked very healthy. Able to stand well and walk on his own.
There was no health crisis here.
Notice also that the Spec Ops guy searches Bergdahl to make sure he is not wearing a suicide belt to blow up the Black Hawk.
The Taliban informed the incoming helicopter there were 18 armed fighters surrounding it - the reply the Taliban got was , “that's fine”
Most of all note danger that that POS put our soldiers through one last time when they came to pick him up. This is the real world our soldiers live and work in, not some Washington DC media talking head green room made up world where Susan Rice spins the White House lies and distractions
One of my suspicions is that Bergdahl probably turned native, has a wife, and maybe even kids. That explains the need to shave him, explains his shaved beard, and even explains our Spec Ops searching him for an explosive vest.
Unless he gets jailed for desertion/collaboration, he’ll be back in Afghan shortly after he’s freed.
That’s could be what his consolation is, and then for the Taliban that’s a total victory. They get their 5 leaders, and they get Bergdahl back on their side.
The only thing preventing that would be jail time.
I wonder what other videos they have of him. Maybe training the Taliban to attack American forces?
Susan Rice-—useful OblahMao Admin spokes idiot. Might as well put a hajib with an embroidered Obama logo on her.
She’s an abused woman but willing to be a famous captive for the cause. Her credibility is thoroughly shot to shinola.
Yes I noticed he was crying and wiping away his tears. Those tears were not for freedom, they were for leaving his Taliban friends.
I am sure you have it right that the Taliban were told to have him clean shaved.
Yes, we could be wrong but it’s a slim to zero chance we are, especially in light of Michelle Malkin’s report this morning that Bergdahl was disciplined with extra duty and loss of privileges after being caught sleeping on watch. This punishment is what caused him to walk off.
This Taliban video actually does our side a service. Although it was to document their side in keeping the bargain, it actually demolishes the White House’s argument that Bergdahl’s declining health threatened his survival.
Pray that the House holds a hearing on this soon and uses this video.
The white house will spin it. That’s what they do, who they are.
BO was looking for an event he could use to distract all the sheeple from his growing scandals. This was suppose to be it.
Yet another failure of the BO regime.
You don’t say!
Does that mean Susan Rice lied again? *shocked!!*
Usually I stand back, observe, analyze and try to add needed perspective. But after seeing the photos of those soldiers who died trying to find Bergdahl and after reading Michelle Malkin’s exclusive this morning
I am filled with rage which is rare for me.
Because of my usual ability to hold back emotions, I think that this rage inside me will be shared by millions of others when they hear the facts.
Americans must insist that the House hold a hearing on this immediately. This scandal of Bergdahl/Taliban Terrorists dovetails right into the Behghazi hearings and the VA scandal, and should have a hearing of its own, or Gowdy should expand the scope of his investigation to include matters of all three (Benghazi, VA, Bergdahl).
Offices now open in DC. You can look up and call your local offices as well.
Call your Congressman and Senators. tell them you consider this an act of treason against the US and the President has now endangered all of America with another 9/11 attack by releasing these dangerous criminals.
Tell them you expect them to uphold their oath to the Constitution.
The President must be impeached and removed from office for this treacherous act. That is the remedy under the Constitution.
My reps are all Dems, but they heard from me yesterday morning.
If you do nothing, nothing will change.
Must be rear-echelon types.
They get their 5 leaders, and they get Bergdahl back on their side.
I’d say that they got a whole lot more. I made this comment on another thread, so I am c&p’ing it here.
Obamugabe used the Rose Garden presser to show the mohammedans that we have surrendered, that he has handed us over to them. Bergdahl, the cracker mock-up of Osama bin Ladin, played back-up singer by praising his satanic deity in front of what once was our White House.
And, of course, the loyal toadies in the media broadcast the ceremony all over the world, so that the islamonazis would get the word. I am sure that there was much ululation and the passing out of sweets in the ME last night.
The SF guys patted him down, before letting him on the helicopter....interesting.
