Skip to comments.Fox’s Rosen: Sources Claim Bergdahl’s Taliban Collaboration ‘As Serious As You Can Imagine’
Posted on 06/04/2014 11:40:45 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Fox News reporter James Rosen claimed intelligence sources have told him not only that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl willingly collaborated with the Taliban, but that his involvement with the terrorist group may be as serious as you can imagine.
Rosen spoke with Bill OReilly Wednesday night about his ongoing conversations with intelligence and Pentagon officials regarding both old and new investigations into Bergdahls likely desertion and possibly treasonous activities.
My reporting has shown that the intelligence community also undertook a separate [from the Army] investigation of Sgt. Bergdahl, Rosen explained, both his final period of active duty that culminated in that mysterious evening, and also his conduct over the past five years, which is said to have been a period of captivity.
Alright, now why would you say the intelligence, I assume thats defense intelligence, the CIA, all those people why would they bother investigating a sergeant who was taken captive? OReilly asked. I mean, why would they spend those resources?
Well, with greatest proximity, because they were tasked with doing so, Rosen responded cagily. But my reporting on this is that there are many inside the intelligence community who harbor outstanding concerns not just that Sgt. Bergdahl may have been a deserter, but that he became an active collaborator with the enemy.
The reporter reiterated information regarding Bergdahls emails, the packing up of his personal effects, his failure to take certain equipment with him before he left his post and anecdotal evidence from Taliban commanders including how Bergdahl taught Islamist fighters how to reprogram a mobile phone into an IED.
The last thing I will tell you is Im still working on this story, Im talking to a broad range of sources in and out of the government, in and out of the military, Rosen explained. And all I will say is, there are many forms that active collaboration can take. Im investigating claims that it could go as serious as you could imagine.
“reprogram a mobile phone into an IED.”
Gee, I know that today’s phones are pretty smart, but programed to explode? I assume that he means programed to be a trigger for an IED.
>> Bergdahl taught Islamist fighters how to reprogram a mobile phone into an IED.
If that’s true....
a remote trigger. exactly
The most serious thing would be to take up arms against his fellow US soldiers. My question is why would he come back?
Because he was sure the Obama administration would welcome him back with open arms?
If all this is true he will be isolated from the media on the pretext of health issues, given another promotion and all his back pay, swing a sweet book deal, be feted on all the TV talk shows, and run for the Senate.
No problem, if you're Macgyver.
Why not make him the next Sergeant Major of the Army or put a gold bar on his shoulder? Or perhaps become a Muslim chaplain?
isnt it obvious ? being an America-hating islamic sympathizer he was willing to take one for the taliban team, if necessary, so their dream team of leaders could get back in the game and kill American troops again. they are going to be in Qatar for a year, but they are a little rusty so they need some time to work on being savages.
the obama gang never figured there would be the negative firestorm that has happened.
they calculated that obama and the bergdahls would get a ticker tape parade.
Fox News is...unimaginative...because “as serious as I can imagine” is the Taliban infecting Bergdahl with Ebola (2 to 21 day incubation period before symptoms begin showing) during which time he’s met with the President and many layers of the military and civilians in parades and the like to spread the virus.
Because the tailiband had already gotten what little usefulness out of him they could, and he had become nothing more than another mouth to feed and not even useable as cannon fodder since there was no way they would trust him with any type of weapon.
Trade him for some of their leaders and probably a substantial amount of bribes? Helluva deal for them.
“Gee, I know that todays phones are pretty smart, but programed to explode? “
Coincidence that I was watching episode 8 of The Americans’ and that’s how one of the KGB guys hit one of the US scientists.
He and his homosexual spouse could be co-Sergeant Majors.
Did he come back WILLINGLY?
Bergdahl told the Taliban that he could help them get 5 of their buddies sprung from Gitmo.
This just gets worse all the time. This is worthy of conviction in the Senate & even a criminal court.
To help the Taliban get five senior leaders back.
correction: co-Sergeants Major
The more I read about this the more I am convinced that Bergdahl’s father was also involved with this.
Bergdahl’s father was in contact with Bergdahl the entire time he working with the Taliban.
thats good shootin. i think youre right on target
And nothing is going to happen to either one of them, even if you’re right. Watch and see.
I doubt he came back willingly. He was probably drugged a bit (and perhaps blindfolded) before his departure. There was no way the Taliban wasn’t going to turn him in for the 5 bigger fish Obamadullah offered them.
That's a good question. maybe he should be on suicide watch.
Bergdahls father was in contact with Bergdahl the entire time he working with the Taliban.
That’s interesting. Have you read Shoebat’s article? He has the Berghal Sr’s youtube channel. Heavy into Moslem preachers or whatever they’re called and learning how to pray with the correct Arabic or whatever accents. It’s on FR.
If that turns out to be the case, this whole thing is even worse than we all thought.
He likely means to have the phone used as a remote trigger for explosives. Something like this...
“GSM Based Cell Phone Controlled Remote Switching Circuit”
There are hints of money passing hands....no proof so far ....but the Haqqanis are a crime family....its all about the money.
The day they do that I may throw my gold bottle-cap over the White House fence. Don't care - stuck at 0-4; being passed over for a minority or gender based promotion. Can't have my pistol expert medal or some of the others!
Returning top enemy commanders to an enemy who has not surrendered is giving aid to the enemy.
1. This specific trade -- Talibani leaders for Bergdahl -- has been on the negotiating table for at least three years.
2. Yet, the Obama administration has had to know the whole story on Bergdahl from the outset.
3. They also evidently went to the trouble of "sanitizing" the Bergdahl file that was exposed to Congress over the past three years. Saxby Chambliss said there was no "desertion note", nor mention of one, in the file he saw. Nor were there any reports based on interviews with his fellow soldiers. So far as Congress was allowed to know, Bergdahl was simply "missing" and a "captive".
4. They appear to have counted upon the military hierarchy and the non-disclosure agreements, coupled with their lapdog press, to keep Bergdahl's real status from becoming known to the public.
5. For some unknown reason, they rushed the exchange to completion without advising Congress. Whether it was to offset the bad PR stemming from the VA Scandal, I don't know.
6. Now, the thing has blown up on them -- because the Pentagon is leaking and the soldiers have talked. Plus, the lap-dog press smells blood in the water.
However, recognize that, apparently, getting Bergdahl back has been every bit as important to the Obama administration as getting their five thugs back was to the Taliban!
And, now that the desertion (defector?) cat is out of the bag, they are sticking with their story -- even though it is patently obvious they no longer have a case (and that they actively tried to mislead Congress).
Bergdahl himself, not Bergdahl as a symbol, is somehow very, very important to these people. Or, perhaps, it's the elder Bergdahl who is important -- or some people he is connected to.
Something else is going on here...there is whole 'nother level to this affair.
The Oval Office cell will protect the Bergdahl cell.
in other words - it ain’t the skunk you can see that’s really the one that’s stinkin’. right ?
Legend has it, the Israelis are very good at cell phones. Example.
“If all this is true he will be isolated from the media on the pretext of health issues, given another promotion and all his back pay, swing a sweet book deal, be feted on all the TV talk shows, and run for the Senate.”
They don’t even need a health issue pretext. Eric Holder will just start an investigation that lasts until he leaves office and everyone will refuse to talk because of the investigation.
Legend has it, the Israelis are very good at cell phones. Example.
what I don’t get , and from what I am reading , is that if we knew where he often was being held ( in Pak) and felt sure he had not only deserted , but was also collaborating and advising the Taliban/Haqqanis , why we did not lay an air strike in on him/them and just utterly destroy the entire lots of them , including the traitor ? It would have been great loss . No one would have ever known his fate, or if the Talib had reported it , we could just say “ Oooops !”
Why was he allowed to live and collaborate , for so long ?
Whose screw up was that ? Where was our sharp sword ?
we are all going to have to help , in any way you can...
Who has been in the White House since this man went missing? There you go!
it’s time for a complete override
I am guessing they did not ask him. He is not as important to them as getting 5 psycho leaders back.
maybe bergdahl was a useful tool for the obozo gang.
Notice how well shaved he looks? And doesn’t seem emaciated.
According to Ollie North, something between $5-6 million changed hands.
It’s late at night.
My nightime meds are kicking in.
Before I went to bed I was going to say something important and relevant and clever in response to this new info about Bergdahl, but my mind simply won’t stop thinking of him (and his father) as “Beard’n’all” [Beard-and-all].
In my current state it does sound kinda close to “Bergdahl” if you sort of slur it all together with a Southern drawl and don’t listen too closely. But then, I’m a highly trained professional at these sorts of things, and suggest strongly that you don’t try this at home unless you have someone with you who knows what they are doing.
I believe this scandal is finally one that has legs, and that it will still be there in the morning, strutting around like Travolta in Saturday NIght Fever. We’ll pick up where we left off then. Sweet dreams.
