Soldier: Army told us to lie about Bergdahl’s capture
HotAir ^ | Wednesday June 4, 2014

Posted on 06/04/2014 11:23:20 AM PDT by Bigtigermike

The State Department’s attempt to shut up the soldiers who served with Bowe Bergdahl at the time of his capture may end up backfiring on the White House, which has apparently decided to attack their integrity rather than explain their own spin on the issue. One soldier appeared on Fox and Friends this morning who took part in the post-desertion search for Bergdahl and said that the military instructed them to lie about the circumstances of Bergdahl’s disappearance (via Noah Rothman at Mediaite):

“The sentiment that everybody knew was that he walked off the base in the middle of the night, left all his gear there, and went – just walked off the post,” Fuller said. “So, we had all known that it was — that he had deserted his post, and there was never anything about him getting captured or POW until a little while later whenever it came down from the chain of command that we needed to keep quiet and not say anything.”

“We’re going with the narrative that he was captured,” Fuller said of the military’s position on Bergdahl’s alleged desertion.

“So, they basically told you not to tell the truth,” Fox host Brian Kilmeade said.

“Yes, sir,” Fuller replied.

Fuller concluded by corroborating the claims of Bergdahl’s former team leader, Sgt. Evan Buetow,who told CNN on Tuesday that the Taliban’s attacks became more directed after Bergdahl was captured.

It seems that kool-aid drinking liberals are willing to lie to support Obama.

Patriotic Americans? Not so much.

Saw another source mentioning that the guy running the initial find Bergdahl operation was in line to get a Star and didn’t want his promotion messed up by a deserter.

“The ambushes we use, the certain tactics we use, the Taliban was picking up on those things,” Fuller said. “You could tell it was from somebody on the inside that had that info.”

Well...

Father Of Soldier Who Obama Released, Declares Muslim Victory Call, And Obama Smiles As Soon As He Hears The War Cry Of Allah

By Ted on June 2, 2014 in Featured, General

By Walid Shoebat And Theodore Shoebat (A Shoebat Exclusive)

JUST WAIT TILL YOU READ ALL THE EVIDENCE WE ACCUMULATED ON THIS SUPPOSED RESCUE OPERATION.

FIRST THINGS FIRST

While the Obama administration is proudly touting how it was able to free an American soldier who was captured by the Taliban, what no one picked is the fact that Obama SMILED as soon as he heard the most famous war cry of Islam, “bismillah al-rahman al-rahim,” Arabic for “in the name of Allah the most gracious, the most merciful.”

Watch Obama smile as soon as Bergdahl gives the most famous Muslim expression, the “Bismillah” or the “Basmallah”:
The “basmallah” is the Islamic expression for victory and only indicates that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s father is a Muslim.

Think that the man is acting as “Muslim” for a stealth operation to rescue his son who is already in good hands in Germany? And what is with the long beard and trimmed mustache?

No this is not a bum, biker, or a Santa Clause fan. When one gives the basmallah, trims his mustache and elongates his beard, its the first sign of a convert to Islam, just as that an ex-Muslim putting on a cross and saying, “In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,” is evidence enough of conversion to Christianity. But there is much more we obtained on this stealth jihadist.

But first, Obama’s smile says much. Obama has never declared the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and has no real testimony of converting to Christianity, as his pastor Jeremiah Wright stated:

I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam

EVIDENCE THAT BERGDAHL CONVERTED TO JIHADI ISLAM

We were first hit with news from Brietbart that the Taliban said that Robert Bowe Bergdahl’s son, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, converted to Islam, changed his name to Abdullah, and even trained the Taliban in bomb making techniques.

And like father like son, the young Bergdahl, also trims his mustache and extends his beard, as these pictures show:

The rest of the history…

The OFA Talking points have gone out, and the comment sections of articles on this bear it out.

- The soldiers who served with Bowe, are all lying.

- Their recollection of events were coordinated with FOX news.

- Nobody died looking for him.

- The pushback is simply because Obama is black

That’s the meme the Left is running with.

I just left ‘The Hill’ website.

The droolers are hitting it hard with denial of any of the previous articles on the guy.

I fully expect Bergdahl to go the Madden route and opt for a sex change.

That will immunize him from criticism.

As I said on another post, do not be surprised if they come out and say Bergdahl was under orders to infiltrate the Taliban. Wait for it!

Hagel said today he doesn’t know the specifics. This is a set up so he can say “We had to wait until he was safely home before we could tell the whole story.”

Morrissey mentions non-disclosure agreements, but those weren’t specifically mentioned in the interview of this military guy. Were the comrades of Bergdahl required to sign non-disclosure agreements?

I know they’ve said that they were told not to tell what happened because it could endanger Bergdahl, but if they were also required to sign NDA’s, then this is on a level similar to the regime giving Benghazi witnesses new identities, requiring them to sign NDA’s, and giving polygraph tests constantly to ensure that nobody broke their NDA’s - at the same time as the regime’s moles/trolls on the internet were saying that people who questioned the official narrative were crazy because so many people wouldn’t possibly keep quiet about something like that...

Seems to me that the regime is really good at keeping people quiet by threats - and then using their silence as proof that everything is perfectly normal, nothing to see, and anybody who thinks they see something is a lunatic. Sort of like taking an entire nation hostage...

But only for a while. Eventually, when enough is at stake or when the supposed reason for silence is gone, people will speak.

Unless they’re dead.... And Obama himself said that he’s really good at killing people...

The pattern is getting blatantly obvious. Sticks and carrots to silence people, and then ridicule those who point out there’s something fishy and people may have been silenced.

The first time we find out that’s happened, shame on them. Now that it’s happened at least 5 or 6 times, shame on US if we let them get away with the libelous crap towards those who point out the discrepancies and the pattern of lawless treason by this regime and its propaganda sources who pose as somebody they’re not.

Second thinking has it that he might have been captured and his consequent behavior was adaptive to his captors wishes.

Thanks. And here’s a link to an article about a guy who says he was forced to sign an NDA: http://foxnewsinsider.com/2014/06/03/bergdahl-platoon-mate-he-deserted-his-post-willfully-and-purposefully

On the thread you gave me the link to a guy who said he was a JAG for a long time said that these NDA’s are unenforceable. IOW, it’s a way to intimidate witnesses. Like Benghazi and every other “scandal” (I’d call it treason) that this regime has been caught at. It’s what they do. It’s how Obama got into office in the first place, it’s how he’s stayed in office, and it’s how he is literally getting away with murder while nobody will do a thing to stop him.

That’s where we’re at, and the sooner everybody recognizes that and plainly states that the emperor is naked, the sooner we can excise the cancer that’s killing us.

Oh, they're using that too.

Bush and Cheney, all by themselves, got us into the War in Afghanistan and released far more GITMO prisoners than Obama has.

I’ve never gotten a response to this:

The Tillmans say McChrystal knowingly gave Pat a Silver Star for a battle that never happened. Is that true? If so, he spat on every Silver Star winner in our history. It’s worse than what Admiral Boorda did.

This story reminds me of that. Just bureaucrats lying while soldiers die. The WWII generation hated and mocked most “brass”. In our times, anyone who wears a uniform is above criticism. Conservatives better realize that the military is the biggest government agency of all.

“It’s worse than what Admiral Boorda did.”

What DID Boorda do, before he allegedly committed suicide?

Hadn’t heard that name in a while.

He was wearing a medal he wasn't entitled to. Though, if I remember right, there may have been two sides to the story.

Thanks for bringing that up, butterdezillion.

I don't understand why more veterans are not up in arms over reports of NDA’s signed under duress, by enlisted members under arms in combat zones, to the non-DOD government entities.

And if DOD elements were involved in political activities to attempt to cover up crimes in war zones....bring that out into the open.

Are we going to need an entity such as Judicial Watch to file a FOIA to find out how many of these NDAs were signed?

Susan Rice made the point that Benedict Bergdahl volunteered to put on the uniform. I heard a guy on TV today say “He also volunteered to take it off.”
